BZFlag uses an ASCII configuration file to store user settings. The file is called "config.cfg" and its location is dependant on your operating system.
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
Linux and unix platforms
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).
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").
