Playing BZFlag on a multiseat setup

Post by Frydman » Sun Oct 13, 2019 1:40 am

Have any of you tried this before? (Or is this your youtube account? This is a COOL concept!)

This makes me think, how difficult would it be to set up without the need for an internet connection? I saw some of the directions around here for locally playing over a LAN, would that be the same directions if using a single computer setup with multiple seats?

You could certainly run a local server (bzfs) on the same machine.

Wait, someone was actually playing on my server? Anyway that's a really cool concept.
I've been working on a real-time stats site called BZList, please check it out! It is still in active development, so some features are missing and watch out for bugs.
