Links on making and testing maps

Post by CannonBallGuy » Fri Aug 11, 2006 3:14 pm

PLEASE READ ALL OF THESE:

To make a map you will need to learn how to code it, or how to use bzedit, or more likely, both.

To test your map properly you will need to run it as a server.

If you have any specific questions, first look again at the links in my post, in case you missed something.
If you dont' find the answer, try searching the forums for previous posts about the same thing.
Then, when you still can't find anything, post your question in a new topic, in the appropriate forum, with as much detail as possible. Be sure to use good grammar and spelling so that people will be more able to help you. Tell us where you have looked, what you have tried and what you think might work.
If it might be useful, tell us your Operating System and version of BZFlag.
Generally: More detail is better than none.

Adding Links
If you want a link added to this topic, let me know and I'll look into it.

Please fix the link.

All of other links, as of time of checking/posting, are correct :)

Thank you

I believe this link contains the information searched for: github.com/BZFlag-Dev/bzflag/blob/2.4/man/bzw.5.in

That contains the raw man file, not the rendered HTML version that bzfman.cgi perl script generated.
