''linedradarshots'' sets how long shots are on the radar. While this option ''is'' set-able through the in-game GUI, you can only set this setting up to 10 via the GUI. You can hand-edit your config to give you longer shot lengths.

BZFlag uses an ASCII configuration file to store user settings. The file is called "config.cfg."

Location

The location of the config file depends on your operating system.

Windows

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\My Documents\My BZFlag Files\2.0\config.cfg
Vista: C:\Users\[user]\Documents\My BZFlag Files\2.0\config.cfg

(Of course, replace [user] with your username)

Mac OS X

~/Library/Application Support/BZFlag/2.0/config.cfg

Linux and unix platforms

~/.bzf/2.0/config.cfg


Editing the Config File

As the config file is a text file, it is possible to directly edit it via text-editor instead of through the built-in GUI. Most things can be edited through the in-game GUI, however, there are some things that you can only add via text-editor. Settings that can only be set by editing the config file directly will be discussed here. (Note: these can also be set in-game with the /localset or /bind commands).

Localset Options

 set highlightPattern "laser"
 set highlightPattern "laser|genocide"
 set highlightPattern "(Team Flag|Team's Flag|Genocide)"

highlightPattern highlights lines with the selected words when they appear in the console(chat box).

  • When highlighting one word, just type the word in quotes, such as "laser."
  • If one wants to highlight two or more words, the words must be separated with a '|', such as "laser|genocide" (highlights lines with laser OR genocide).
  • If any of the words have spaces, all the words must be surrounded in parentheses, such as "(Team Flag|Team's Flag|Genocide)" (highlights lines with "Team Flag," "Team's Flag," OR "Genocide").
 set linedradarshots 10
 set linedradarshots 65

linedradarshots sets how long shots are on the radar. While this option is set-able through the in-game GUI, you can only set this setting up to 10 via the GUI. You can hand-edit your config to give you longer shot lengths.
