Description Frank Samuelson 2019-11-02 22:13:38 UTC
Description of problem:
The keyboard in BZFlag does not respond completely properly.  This is because the Fedora release of bzflag is compiled with SDL1 rather than SDL2.  
See https://forums.bzflag.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20017#p177725
This happens in bzflag from Fedora 31, and probably 30 and rawhide too.  Obviously this is a very important bug.   ;)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.4.18

How reproducible:
I reproduced this effect on two different computers.  Others have had the same problem.  See link above.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  install bzflag from repo
2.  join a server
3.  press the up arrow to move tank forward.  The tank moves but eventually stops

Actual results:
Tank stops moving.

Expected results:
Tank should continue moving forward while button is depressed.

Additional info:
This problem appears to be easily fixable by modifying the .spec file to use SDL2 according to this diff:

22c22
< BuildRequires: SDL-devel
---
> BuildRequires: SDL2-devel
58c58
< %configure --libdir=%{_libdir}/%{name} --with-SDL=1
---
> %configure --libdir=%{_libdir}/%{name} --with-SDL=2
