Is there a way to minimize or window mode bzflag?

Post by Pinocchio »

Hello,
I'm running Devuan (Debian) Linux. I'm using icewm for my window manager. I'd like to be able to minimize or widow mode bzflag so that I can play a bit, join as a spec, do something, and then jump back into the game.
I've read through the settings multiple times without finding anything to minimize or window mode bzflag. I could probably use some keybinding on my window manager to force bzflag to minimize, but I was thinking that there must be an option for this in the game.

Thanks!

By default, the F1 key toggles fullscreen and the F4 key minimizes the game. You can change these keys in the input mapping menu if you prefer. Also, you may want to change the "confine mouse" option to either No or MotionBox so that the mouse isn't trapped within a windowed client.
