Manpage

Post by optic delusion » Sat Dec 27, 2008 2:43 pm

Put an options object inside your map, to hold your options.
inside the options, use -mp 2,2,2,2,2,2 #rogue,red,green,blue,purple,observer
You also have to make sure that "base" objects are included, and they match the teams you've specified with -mp

For first time users, i suggest using an older, simpler version of the bzw manpage, here's a copy. After you learn the basics, get a newer manpage.

Also... the BZWiki totally rules.

If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

What is considered a options object?

Put this in your bzw text file. This will give you 5 green versus 5 blue, with no other teams allowed. Also 2 observers.

options
-c #Enables the capture-the-flag style game
-mp 0,0,5,5,0,2 #rogue,red,green,blue,purple,observer
end


you also need to have two bases in your bzw. Each must specify the correct color.

Here is the coomplete list of options.

The reason it errors out is because it's trying to allow all four teams to play, but it only has two bases. This issue has been fixed in our development version of the game, so when 3.0.0 comes out you won't have to do this.
