Bzflag 3 Showcase

Post by Gamma Ray » Fri Aug 20, 2010 8:44 pm

As was briefly suggested in the 'Don't let BZFlag Die' thread; Bzflag 3 sounds like vaporware.
What if all those with functioning BZFlag 2.99 builds play for a while together and take some screenshots or videos to show that BZFlag is still a work in progress but is functional and playable? Build up at least a little hype.

"It didn't work" is rather vague. I've played on that server several times, and it works fine.

There are just a couple of features on spazzy's map that are 2.99 specific. Remove them and the map will work fine on 2.0.x. Just don't run it on a public server, as you don't have copyright.
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

no, i tried to run it of a 2.99 build but half of the map just was missing, it didn't show up at all.

Ill try it a gain later when I can compile my own build

(the one I used was probably old or incomplete)
