I have to work in reallife, I dont even have a PC to continue on BZA at the moment.
Consider it delayed. No idea how long it will take or if its ever going to hit your cd-drive.

I think that it would be really nice to have a portable version, so you could stick just BZFlag on a USB flash drive. I don't want the linux or anything, but I saw some other neat portable apps and I thought that a portable BZFlag would be nice too.

Basically every portable app I've seen is for Windows only - as you use Macs, we couldn't use any of those systems. You would need to store BZFlag binaries for all the systems you use it on, and BZFlag would probably still leave traces of itself.

By including Linux, you bypass those problems by using a ramdisk for a hard drive (turn off computer, and BOOM it's gone), and you only need one bzflag binary. You would still need a different CD to make it work on a mac anyway, I guess.

You're more than welcome to host such an ISO on my.bzflag.org as well (aka bzflag.bz). Plenty of bandwidth and disk space available for this purpose, via http or anonymous ftp, as well as customized domain names (e.g. livecd.bzflag.bz or bzanywhere.bzflag.bz, etc) that could be set up if you revive your efforts on the project.

Nice idea in any respect, though I agree that it should probably only provide the latest 2.0 available due to bugs and abuse possible in some of the earlier versions. The dev CVS versions (odd numbered versions, e.g. 2.1) should not be on the CD as they could be made completely obsolete and useless on a whim in a matter of seconds.

You would need the possibility to change the "My BZFlag Files" to Flash device, instead of using 'My Documents'.

I see 2 projects:
  • 1. PortableApp-like BZ-thingy
    2. Full standalone-OS+BZ-thingy
2. has been done - take a look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Games/GamesLive - BZFlag is in there.

People scared of Linux can go code option 1. themselves.
Tank you!

Will this work on the PlayStation 3?
My cousin is being so annoyingly stubborn and uninstalled bzflag. Something to do with his "pride". So I want to use this on my PS3.

Thanks,
TK

No. BZFlag does not run on consoles. This post is discussing the creation of a BZFlag-oriented Live CD.

Yes it does, the PS3 installs linux then can play bzflag.
I am wondering though if this live CD would work on my PS3

The PS3's Linux install does not include 3d hardware acceleration. You will be getting about 7 frames per second.

Well, probably more than 7, but still not very high. It would need also need to be a LiveCD that is designed for the Cell processor.

Anyway, version 3.0 of BZFlag should be fully supported for being run completely from a USB drive, including storing the configuration there.

If you don't care about the configuration being stored on the USB drive, then you can even do this with 2.0.x. Install the game and copy the BZFlag2.0.10 folder onto a USB drive (or to another location on your computer). You could then uninstall the game and run the BZFlag.exe file from that other location.
(Note: For this, I am talking about on Windows, not the PS3.)

If you would have noticed, the topic was started In February 2006.

It's a good bet that it will never be finished.

It shouldn't perform any differently than a copy on your hard drive, once it's loaded, at least.

If by "it", you mean the Live CD, then there are already some Live CDs available that have BZFlag on them. Search around on the forum, or look up higher on this page for one option. Someone posted a link to a LiveCD. I know there is another one that has BZFlag on it too.

I'm in the SUSE Studio alpha (http://susestudio.com). It might be kind of neat to have an image that boots off a flash drive.

I don't know that I could do branding on the desktop, but it'd be trivial to develop a small image with BZFlag on it.
