BZFlag 2.4.6
« on: August 14, 2016, 11:20:01 pm »
Several years ago a GCW Zero user posted on the BZFlag forums requesting a port of the game to this device. I'm pleased to announce that after about a year of effort (totaling about a 41k-line patch to the original code), I have ported BZFlag to the GCW Zero.

This is a multiplayer game, so you'll have to be connected to wifi to be able to do much. There is a help menu within the program that can help you get started, or see this video for some ideas. By default, you get a list of servers specifically for GCW Zero users. You can toggle the "Protocol" setting to "Desktop" in the "Join Game" menu to get a list of desktop games where there are more players (some of those maps can really slow down the GCW Zero, so be careful).

Wow, never heard about that game.
I'm not with my GCW0 right now, but I'll test ASAP!

Zear pointed out a few issues with the initial release, which were corrected and then a new release was issued. The link is below, and I updated the one in the original post, and you can also download it from the repository at http://www.gcw-zero.com/downloads
