Wow, that's really cool. Unfortunately those images won't show up for the majority of people because they're not hosted at images.bzflag.org.

Sure, they can be hosted, as long as the images are licensed under an OSI approved license. I can't do it, since I have no idea where they are from, who made them, or what license they were released under. The image submitter is at http://images.bzflag.org/submitimages/.

i made the textures from a picture of the tower found on google.

and me is working on getting the textures on immages.bzflag.org.


PS it's cool how a team flag can be placed on top of this tower by simply dropping it on one of the "legs" (one of the "legs" on the ground). try that some time! :)

You cannot make the texture from a image you found on Google.

That would be stealing the image without consent from the author.

The only way you can use an image from "Google" is if:
a) It's licensed under a license to allow that.
b) You contact the author and get permission.

i traced the immage down and found out that it originally came from wikipedia. and althouth the reuse of the immage is permitted (by licence), i shall give credit for the immage to Rüdiger Wölk from Münster, Germany. i shall also notice that he did an outstanding job and took a really beautiful picture of the Tower.

thanks for the info, Winny.

1) This is a new discussion and should be started in a new thread in the "Servers: Help" section.

2) What are you putting on the command line when you start the bzfs executable?
And the lesson for tonight is:

And what is in config.txt? You need to give us more information if you expect us to help you.

You need to specify the map file as a command line argument (-world map_filename), or the server will generate a random map and use the specified config file for map options. As you have it now is exactly the same as what bzflag.exe calls to the system when you hit "Start Server" from the "Join Game" panel.

A config can include any and all of the command line options. He just does mot have his config right.

Code: Select all
