The official BZFlag org. and its associated communities use the freenode IRC network for communication and collaboration.
BZFlag maintains 2 official channels run by the org.
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
The #bzflag-chat channel is a more informal channel designated for player community discussions.
A number of players, servers, and leagues have their own channel for more focused discussion. Some of these include:
- ##bar (DUCLeague team, The Barbarians)
- ##bz-inc (DUCLeague team, Bz-Incorporated)
- ##bzflagr (Support channel for the BZFlagr.net servers.)
- ##bzpod (Channel to discuss the BZFlag podcast, BZPod)
- ##bzpro (Support channel for the BZPro.net servers.)
- ##bzw (A place to discuss map making for BZFlag, including ideas and help)
- ##ducleague (Support channel for Ducati League (DucLeague))
- ##guleague (Support channel for GamesUnited League (GULeague))
- ##icf (Support channel for Invasive Chaotic Frenzies, (GULeague))
- ##norang (Support channel for Norang.ca BZFlag servers)
- ##planetmofo (Support channel for planet-mofo.com servers)
- ##t42 (GULeague team)
- ##untamed (DUCLeague team)
Please note that teams,leagues and groups should create channels that begin with ## to follow the freenode "about" channel policy.
An unofficial bzflag channel is run on irc.stormcenter.net
- #bzflag (unofficial support channel for BZtank servers)
To access the IRC network you need to use an IRC client. http://irchelp.org/ is an excellent resource for more information on general IRC.
There is a BZFlag-hosted IRC client at http://my.BZFlag.org/irc/irc.cgi.
