You can now play Battlegrounds 2 completely for free! The kind people at Valve have made the Source SDK Base 2007 available to anyone with a Steam account.

All you need to do is:
1. Install steam (http://store.steampowered.com/about/) and create an account.
2. Go to the Library page in steam.
3. On the drop down menu, which should say "ALL GAMES", select "TOOLS".
4. Scroll down to "Source SDK Base 2007" and double click it.
5. Install the "Source SDK Base 2007".
6. Download the Battlegrounds 2 Installer. (http://www.bgmod.com/downloads/bg2w.html)
7. Run that installer.
8. Restart steam and Battlegrounds 2 will be in your installed games list.

If they're not charging for source-based mods, maybe this is a sign that we might hear something about a new engine in the future...?

I think this has to do with TF2 being free to play.

Sejd is right, though. Unlimited troll accounts for everyone! Kill me.

EDIT: Just created a new account. Everything is shared, installed and ready to play. If someone is banned from a server it takes literally 5 minutes or less to get back in.

I doubt it, I believe it was changed because of TF2 becoming free to play. I have found very little information on Valve's engine plans, but what I gathered was that they are going to change their development cycles to be more like the one they use in TF2, constant updates. If they do this for the next HL game (HL3 or HL2:EP3, whatever they decide upon) I imagine it will be very hard for them to maintain an SDK.

I doubt that because the Gold Source engine isn't like this.

Like someone had already said, Team Fortress 2 being free has triggered Source Mods as not having require a purchase of any source games. Apparently Valve is going to review this decision, but at this point, the cat is already out of the bag, and for now you can 'consider' Source Mods as freeware.

Back to the topic at hand:
http://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=160049

In theory could we now add this plug-in to our servers to prevent free accounts from joining?

By all means, lets use a plugin to kick out anyone interested in this game who didn't pass the almost insurmountable threshold of buying a $4.99 copy of half life 2.

If you want to have players on your servers, you shouldn't use such dumb features that throw out a part of the potential audience.

Well, I'm just throwing it out there for everyone to know about. I only would support such a feature for the sake of preventing abuse by banned players.

I think it's appropriate to mention that the plug in exists, but whether to run such a plug in or not is the choice of the individual server admin. However, I do not believe the community as a whole is in a position to keep a potential whole group of players out wholesale. The community needs more players not more rules. Servers with plug ins are useless without players to play the game. Server admins who put this on their server will probably find players going to the servers who don't have it. That's competition working, in my view.

All this discussion is moot as it will not work for 3rd party mods. It will only work for TF2.

Actually the plugin would "work". Instead of banning people who haven't purchased a source game it would just ban people with TF2 which they haven't purchased. So if you own HL2 and CSS, but have F2P TF2 you wouldn't be allowed to join.

i dont think the plugin in is neseccary because like you had this guy join the SS server called "joethebutt" i thought he was gonna be a troll but turned out he was just a random pubber that had no games on his steam account,so really you could just keep banning the trolls

Frankly, the servers need more and better admins, not pre-set scripts.

Agreed, this will help get more people to play BG2.
