The Wacky Glitch Screenshots

This is what happens when under unusual (and unknown by me) circumstances occur when you minimize and re-focus BZFlag. Sometimes, usually under higher CPU loads from what I have found you will become basically stuck, unspawned and just able to see things happening in a sort of slow-motion sense. You still see everyone's positions, but in less frame updates, and bullets tend to not move. Everything moves at almost 0 velocity for the most part.

Well, the result of this mishap, is some interesting screenshots (Not to mention the 2000+ jitter that will make you nr to everyone except yourself. You will be able to see players updating, but they don't see anything from you for what I can understand with this strange glitch.)

Anyways, enjoy the wacky screenshots. Note that I'm not able to move, everything moves real slowly and I am nr during this time. (As in a second is probably almost an hour of real time.)

Initial Spawn + 1 Bullet: ... s/pic1.PNG

Another Bullet + Slightly rising above base + My Jitter warning(Even if I'm nr): ... s/pic2.PNG

My Bullets now farther below as I spawn upward: ... s/pic3.PNG

After I get kicked for being nr: ... s/pic5.PNG

Lots of people shooting: ... s/pic6.png

Still lots shooting: ... s/pic7.png

Due to the blur that was inserted into the screenshots, I'm refusing to try debunking this one; too few evidence is provided.

How do you get the bullets to look like that? Mine just look like coloured spheres :|

if you have the newest bzflag (2.16 i believe)
go into options
then go into effects settings
there should be an option called bullet length... turn it up

you should now have happy bullets
