Well first start the BZFlag client. There should be a shortcut on your desktop.

Then, type in a callsign, that is your name that everyone will see when you enter a server. In your case, it would be best if you put in "0407kevin".

In the passowrd field put in the password you use to log into here.

Extra Information - The username and password you use here should be the ones you use for BZFlag.

That is because that some servers use Global Authentication (or something), and if your not registered here with a callsign and password and you use an unregistered callsign on the server you will get kicked from it. Also, registered players like yourself can vote in and create polls.


Now, once you've entered your callsign and password, select "Find a Server" and select one of the maps you want to go to. The ones at the top of the list have the most players.

As GraceF said, It means you need to put in the same password as you do here, before you hit 'Join Game'.

Read the previous posts before re-asking the question please.

If you've downloaded it, it should be on your desktop.

If you haven't downloaded it then download it HERE
