==Common Support Issues==
 +
The [[Common Support Issues]] page lists a number of the common problems with the game, and their resolutions.
 +
 
 +
==Documentation==
 +
The game is documented via a series of manual pages (or man pages).
 +
 
 +
On Microsoft Windows the manual pages are in HTML format, and are available from the start menu.
 +
On Linux and other Unix-like operating systems, they are installed by default and can be accessed by using the man command and one of the following pages:
 +
*bzflag
 +
*bzfs
 +
*bzadmin
 +
*bzw
 +
 
 +
==Further Support==
 +
 
 +
If none of these methods provide a resolution to your problem, the project maintains an [https://github.com/BZFlag-Dev/bzflag/issues issue tracker on GitHub] where an issue can be opened.
