Team flags: Capture these flags to win a point for your own team. Don’t bring flags to the other te
Missed the "am" in "team".
There are two flags that will speed up reloading: Rapid Fire and Machine Gun. Laser flag will slow your reloading.
You should also add though laser has slow reloading it has infinite speed.

I just spellchecked and typed out the rest of the post. Found a dozen or two errors :shock: and had to do all that twice :x . But finally I've got it done.

The radar has three ranges: short, medium, and long. Use <1>, <2>, <3>.
That is true, however, I can use <4> and <5> to zoom in/out in small increments. :P

Working on it...

Post by GMMan » Sun Aug 20, 2006 2:46 am

I'm still working on Beginner Tips #2. Writing all these things are back-breaking. Hopefully it'll be easier with Windows Live Writer. Meanwhile, keep yourself occupied with my Secrets!! #2. I'll try to get the second tip finished tomorrow if I have time.
*Ow.... back still hurts*

Man I'm occupied. I have to review Boxy War and get the tips done...
