Getting help on BZFlag is rather easy. There are a number of places to get help

IRC Chat Room

The BZFlag communities make heavy use of IRC for communication and collaboration.

The freenode network is used for all IRC communications. Common channels include:

  • #bzflag ( development and support )
  • #bzflag-chat ( general player talk )

A web interface is provided to these channels for registered forum users on the forum main page.

Please see BZFlag on IRC for more info.

Web Forums

BZFlag hosts a forum for registered users. This also serves as a player registration system for the game.

Quick Start

Just want to start playing? Get going with BZFlag right away, with this Quick Start page.

Common Support Issues

The Common Support Issues page lists a number of the common problems with the game, and their resolutions.


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 issue tracker on GitHub where an issue can be opened.
