To pick up the Flag: Run your tank over the flag.
To capture the Flag: Run your tank over the flag cap/spawn point while your flag is there.

Arrow pointing directions:
- When no one has the flag, arrow points toward enemy flag.
- When you have the flag arrow points toward your flag cap point.
- When a teammate has the flag, arrow points toward nearest enemy tank.
- When enemy has your flag (regardless of whether your team has its flag or not) arrow points toward that enemy flag carrier. This is becuase no one can capture a flag until one of the flags returns to their base.

Now I'm not sure how arrows work when you're playing with a 3+ team CTF game. We never made any maps for those - but it can handle up to 6 teams.

I'll post AI play styles under the Strat board.

are you sure you can't capture the flag when the other team has yours? I think i have done that.

I haven't tried what you asked about Coax - but you shouldn't be able to...

From all this do i asume that the servers have been brought in line with 1.5.6 now ?

ie. is it safe for me to install the patch to play multiplayer - or will it still return error code : WRONG VERSION ?

thx.

I gave Homelan an e-mail last night about the upgrade. Haven't gotten a responce yet. I'll give Domino an e-mail also.

Any other regular servers that people have e-mail addresses for? If they do give them an e-mail. We need all the servers upgraded to the new version.

okay you can't "capture" the other teams flag but you can "grab" the other teams flag when they have yours. I may of confused eveyone and myself with my word choice.

Yeah - you can do that Coax...

The AI's don't know to do it though...hehe - It's always fun...go after their flag and grab it to give your AI pals a better chance to take out the enemy flag carrier

Then if you're good you might even score
