Well the time has come for the big release: Battlegrounds 2 1.5a. This game adds a variety of features. Shots and description can be in the last news post. This release has been a long time in coming, but we have some big changes to add. The new features add a whole new dimension to the game, especially ironsights and capture the flag. Over the past few days we’ve continued to test and fix little issues with the game. Special thanks to HairyPotter for working hard right up until release to fix bugs, and thank you to our beta testers and beta test servers who have helped iron things out: 3D clan, AP clan and SS clan.

Fixed a bug where people who leave a flag while the capture timer still counts can return and finish the cap even though they’d stopped capping.
Added Native and Militia class.
Added bump mapping on all weapons.
Added bg2_maptrigger entity for mappers, which can do outputs on Round and Map wins for each team.
Tweaked the class selection menu a tad. Thanks to Area51.
Added hud_takesshots, which will make clients take screenshots of the scoreboard on map ends. BG2 Options entry added.
Flags will no longer continue to give points to teams once the round has ended and everyone is frozen.
Adjusted the player’s camera position, so it’s a little higher off the ground when crouching.
Fixed a bug where a voicecomm will stop a weapon’s reload sound.
Added Tjoppen’s new bullet physics code for (non) simulated bullets.
Simulated bullets model is now invisible, and it’s origin shifted to the right of the player’s FOV.
Added the Forcecap input for flags. Which forces the flag to instantly cap for a certain team.
Added a “starting team” setting for flags.
Localized some text strings, so that lang files could be set up.
Native has no voicecomms.
