FreeNode[edit]

The official BZFlag org. and its associated communities use the freenode IRC network for communication and collaboration.

Channels[edit]

Official channels[edit]

BZFlag maintains 2 official channels run by the org.

#bzflag[edit]

The #bzflag channel is the primary development and support channel. The major developers and many long time community members are users. Discussions in the channel range from development and coding discussions to technical support and bug reports. #bzflag is a great channel to discuss new features and bugs. The channel is moderated by the project administration and development staff. This channel is not for help with specific servers or administration issues

#bzflag-chat[edit]

The #bzflag-chat channel is a more informal channel designated for player community discussions.

Inactive/defunct channels

When the Freenode Group Management System is implemented, channels with a single # will need to either register their organization with Freenode or rename to begin with ## (a "reference" channel, one that holds no legal claim to the name).

stormcenter.net[edit]

An unofficial bzflag channel is run on irc.stormcenter.net

  • #bzflag (official support channel for BZtank servers)

IRC Clients[edit]

To access the IRC network you need to use an IRC client or Freenode's Webchat. IRChelp.org is an excellent resource for more information on general IRC.
