News: there is now a revised version of 1.0, the only differance is that this one ha a compile-script which creates a jar-file. The jar-file contains everything you need to run bfm and can be put anywhere on you drive. You can also download the precompiled jar-file and you don\'t have to have jdk (just a jre)

I suggest you adding to the README file that this tool is very good for folks (such as me), who get\'s angry with Windows and are still considering on how they want to kill them of their harddrives. ;)))

Nice Software. However, I would like to play with the source code, but it is all written in foreign (don\'t recognise the language)

I would really appreciate an english translation. Thanks

So... when can we play this on a LAN with other people\'s filesystems as the stakes ?

Hey, um ... this is awesome and all, but a lil\' more thought could be added to it, right ? you could use existing code for newer games, and load up hard drive pictures as walls, use maps ordered by players\' favorite (custom) game levels, move other files around, destroy active processes, use teleports as shortcuts, weapons that create files, and MUCH more ... why just delete ? :-p

J: The idea is that bfm should be a file manager and I guess it doesn\'t really qualify if it only can remove files :)

The next release will include ways to move and copy files (it\'s already implemented in our cvs code and will hopefully be released in a few weeks or so). Basically this will be done with the same weapons as you use to remove files but in a \'select\' or \'deselect mode\'. When you have selected the files you want to copy/move you just find your way to the destination folder and press a key to copy the files or another key to move them to that \'room\' (I hope this explanation made some sense at least).

By the way, I can promise you some new weapons in the next release as well... :)

And thanks for your suggestions, I\'ll keep them in mind...

The file will be deleted just like the files you intend to hit...

...unless you started BFM in safe mode of course, then the file will be unaffected

How about a tractor beam for moving and copying files? A flag gun that posts a flag (pole and rectangle with text) on the target cylinder with file info?
Change the colours of the text in this - it\'s pretty hard to see?

Also, it doesn\'t work:
drigz@ayro:~$ bfm -s -Xms -Xmx
Exception in thread \"main\" java.lang.NullPointerException
at java.util.Arrays.sort(
at Room.(
at Bfm.(
at Bfm.main(
Why? I really wanna try it out?

a stun gun (push away files and \"damage\" them)
a corupt gun
delete folders
shot files on allowable internet space
a jump box (were you would enter something like ftp://mynick@myschools_server/myfiles)
a nuke thingy (to beat the outofmemory problem)
-> the nuke would act like this
press 5, get a nuclear bomb
drop it veryclose to a wall, run for it...
this will remove ramdomly files in the folder in order to pass without have outofmemory...

NO BLOOD, please, no blood, I hate games were there blood... At least put a -nb (for no blood) option at the command line

how about that?

Your file manager is very cool.

I suggest that rather than have the files \"bleed when they are hit,\" you instead have them emit 1s and 0s. Possibly in phosphor green.

A really interesting piece of software you got there. It\'s a pity that the filemanager is not in the portage-tree (anymore?) do you guys know anything about it or do you provide ebuilds ? (read that you\'re using gentoo)

best regards

It should be by now, I\'ve submitted an ebuild to bugzilla that has been \"fixed\", it\'s listed in the portage cvs at but not at - strange...

Great program! Certainly useful in venting frustrations at virus files or that doctoral thesis that is driving me crazy!

One suggestion I would love to see is a multiplayer version under Linux. I have a small home linux server that several people in the house and across the internet login to. since I know I can see them online via the shell \'who\' command, I would think it would not be too hard to extend this into the BFM concept. Then (if all players agree) you could frag your users as well as files! Kills could be represented as \'logouts\'

Keep up the good work!
