in-game buddy list would be excellent, and you could perhaps have servers with your "buddies" on them listed up at the top.

There has been a buddy list at http://zeebrothers.net/ for as long as I care to remember. Bookmark it, then just open your browser to see who is online...

In fact, I should think it would be possible to make a widget that does basically the same thing as the tlz buddy list... ;)

You mean a dashboard-widget? Yeah, that would be nice.... if anybody has experience at that area, I'd be willing to help making it.

Try BZManager

Post by GMMan » Wed Jul 26, 2006 5:12 pm

BZManager can keep track of your buddies. It's on the second tab. You just have to setup the program, add buddies by rightclicking, Add, and typing in your buddy's callsign. The bad thing about it is that it relies on the listserver. If the LS is down, BZManager's buddie list wouldn't work.
I haven't touched BZFlag for years, but maybe sometime I'll make a comeback.

I'm on Twitter. And I mess with webOS. This signature is not a blog.

I once read a little about widgets, they are basically just webpages, so someone with some php knowledge could make one.
I would be happy to provide some CSS to beautify it too.
