Cant "play" my map

Post by A Looney Kumquat » Sat Aug 11, 2007 5:37 pm

Grand Hustla was helping me with this one, but I forgot to write stuff down, so I was wondering if anyone else knows what to do....

I want "play" my map through the localhost port 5154.... all I remember was the cmd and dragging my map there...

what I have in the cmd so far is "C:\Documents and Settings\Nate>" now what do I type, when do I press enter, and when do I drag in my map?? thank you!

You need to navigate to your BZFlag install directory, and make sure that your map file and config file are in that directory. Then use "bzfs -conf myconfig.txt". You don't need to drag your world file anywhere if you use the -world command in your server config.

First, don't double post.
Second, don't post pointless replies.
Third, learn some more about your OS and it's CLI.
Fourth, learn more about bzfs.
Fifth, don't ask where to learn, that has been posted in many many topics already.

CLI stands for Command Line Interface, which, the 'cmd' prompt is.

If you're on windows, open command prompt (in accessories). Then, if you put BZFlag in the normal place, type:

Code: Select all

cd C:\Program Files\BZFlag2.0.8
If not, just type the address after cd
Next, type:

Code: Select all

bzfs.exe -world (Name of map).bzw
After that, open BZFlag.
Enter localhost and 5154, in address and port respectively. Join.

Okay, you get a Bic, the orc gets a long sword.

He cuts the Bic in half.

Then he cuts you in half.

Oops, I meant quarters.

And if you want to test/play your map with a configuration file then change the

Code: Select all

bzfs.exe -world <yourmap>.bzw
To..

Code: Select all

 bzfs.exe -conf c:\conf.txt -world c:\world.bzw
Assuming you have saved your map and configuration file on disk C.
