so er, how about submitting bg2 to greenlight, to make it easier to download like, who knows.......might even get voted in since its free

also, bg3, any news?

Posted by: Chris101 Jul 6 2014, 11:49 AM

Submitting to Steam Greenlight is a $100.00 fee. If no one can pay it all up-front, we should try making a donation area specifically for getting BG2 greenlighted (if no one wants to do it I could make a paypal account named BG2 Greenlight or something). Might not be a bad idea... unless it is "illegal" to get the money from public for this.

Are you imitating my profile avatar? lol

Posted by: oo7 Jul 12 2014, 08:02 AM

i highly doubt its illegal but it would likely get new players to the mod, id contribute some if other guys would help, but i think its a good idea there is more and more free to play games going to steam greenlight all the time......and the fact that its free would make it much easier to get "yes" votes

Exactly. Myself or someone could create a PayPal named BG2 Greenlight. I would definitely donate as well. Like you said, it does bring a lot more players. I've heard dead games getting greenlighted and then have like 7 or more servers up and alive again just from getting on Steam.

Any thoughts?

The plan is indeed to submit to Greenlight, but we want a somewhat better finished product first. This includes the conversion to the newer engine, which has been recently done. You want to submit your best version to Greenlight, and we're still finishing up some things on the updated version to do that. Hawke has more details, but that is the basic summary.

Sounds good.

massive increase of comminity size

BG2 still has a long way to go before greenlight can be considered. Even if most of the Day of Defeat textures and models were replaced and removed by now, there's still the problem of the community size, outdated game engine, models of varying quality and overall gameplay being repetitive after a while.

I know BG2 will switch to the 2013 engine for the next patch, so there's that sorted, but we would still need brand new player models for most, if not all classes, a big texture revamp, reworking most maps to fit the new engine and new graphic capacity, replace some weapon models and add more varied game modes.

After all that's done, we may stand a chance in the greenlight system. Otherwise best we could get is Steam to feature BG2 as an integrated steamworks mod, like Pirates, Vikings and Knights II.

Well we can forget about a bigger/better/nicer community until '76 and the rest of the trolls are gone and don't come back every time a new update is released trying to drive more players out of the mod.

Dear Chris McHayes,
Who the hell were you again? I don't remember you. Were you important? I think you were probably one of the many admins who banned my entire clan because Paw Paw called you a six letter N-word, Spiers called you bad at the game, I made fun of your terrible maps, Dr Pepper would go on drunken tirades which you for some reason never muted him, all of us joining your server under the name "Nuper", and/or anyone whomever called you a bad name that wasn't in my clan to begin with. Btw: Billy, that kid who made fun of the skid marks on your tighty-wighties in middle school is in my clan, as is your crazy Aunt who says your hair makes you look like a sexual deviant.

Please, cease and desist your attacks on the character of my clan as we stood for enjoyment of the game and promoted positive social values for the rest of the community. We did not participate in these frivolous crusades against the "evil clans" of "hackers" and "trolls" just because we lacked skill or misunderstood humor due to some sort of social deficiency, which is what we generally assumed everytime we got banned.

Condolences,
Churl

p.s. My clan is dead, we don't even play anything together. It's highly unlikely that we'll return to the game unless that there is a major update/change to the game-play and community.

Still a faggot, after all these years. Never change.

That's just mean! Joe! Didn't you learn anything from when you were in '76? We never used homophobic remarks!

Posted by: joethepro36 Oct 14 2014, 01:33 AM

To be fair I never encountered a single homophobic remark in my short tenure in '76.

Who the fuck is this asshole? '76 and the rest of our ilk left because of the low caliber of trash that was left in the servers. Very few people worth playing with were still active so we devoted our energies to more worthwhile endeavors and left the remnants of what used to be a good community to the dregs of its society (of which I can only assume you take a prominent position). Have a good day, sir, and rot in hell while you are at it.

Posted by: AngryIRSAgent Oct 14 2014, 01:43 AM

Ohh the lolz. 76th, AP, and all the other ilk. We are the worst and have been the worst. Yet these groups kept this game alive. What have you done? BC ITS DEAD!!!! Fuck you Chris.

Don't blame the '76, AP or any other clan for this game dying. To be fair you can't put the blame on LCG either.

I've played BG2 for over 2,000 hours and I don't remember any '76 members causing any harm.

Dear Mr. Butthurt Bartlebee Von PMS (Sr.),

We here at the Battlegrounds Forums have received and reviewed your complaint regarding the 76th clan and have processed it via the following manner. Our highly trained experts started by conducting a thorough review of the punctuation, capitalization and grammar of your complaint and found a number of following errors leading us to believe that you are either A; illiterate, B; lacked the required funds and transportation to attend school / receive formal education, C; possess the syndrome known as 'downs', or D; all of the above. We then passed your complaint on to our heavily skilled child soldiers who proceeded to use said complaint as target practice for AK-47 rifles, as well as other small arms. The end result was a mass of shredded paper which was then dutifully pieced together by forensic experts using glue, scotch tape and a few staples. It was then re-shredded via a paper shredder and the remaining fragments were dipped in gasoline and promptly set ablaze. Please keep in mind, all of our trained experts are Gold Users on Reddit.com and moderators of forums such as r/gonewild and r/justiceporn, making them experts and ambassadors to the site.

To put it mildly, your complaint has since been rejected due to complete and utter stupidity and lack of any and all evidence to back up or justify your harsh words. In light of this, I have made this forum account specifically for the purpose of informing you that your complaint was reviewed and rejected in a timely, organized manner. Furthermore, you are a very churlish and insubordinate individual and your words wound me. I will seek vengeance on you using my 2nd amendment right to own a motherf#@king TANK. In the words of Cave Johnson,

QUOTE
Cave Johnson: All right, I've been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get Mad! I don't want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man whose gonna burn your house down - with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that'll burn your house down!


In closing, you are a hateful person and I will not even grant you a response...
Fuck you.

GE MIG PAJ NU!

Posted by: ewoK Oct 14 2014, 05:11 AM

yeah i agree with dubyah i hate trolls

Posted by: Chris101 Oct 15 2014, 10:24 AM

Thanks for all the pointless hate replies. I could care less what you high school dropouts think. I like how you got all your troll friends to reply after you Churl, well played, bitch.

P.S. I can be an ass too. Don't care if you call me a faggot. I didn't mention anything about AP nor LCG so go away.

Posted by: BIKA Oct 16 2014, 07:40 PM

You're all arguing about a game that I already beat like 4 years ago.

You mean to use "...couldn't care less". Using "could care less" is very unclear to the point of being useless as its meaning ranges from just above not caring at all to it being the most important thing in your life. Also, it is quite impropper to use 'nor' when you've already used a negative, such as "didn't", in your statement. It is called a double negative which implies a positive. You could have said "I mentioned neither AP nor LCG" or "I didn't mention anything about AP or LCG." Your profile claims you are 17, how are you so inept at writing after going through so many years of schooling?

Let's stay on topic and keep it clean, or this thread will have to be locked.

Remember that we moved to a new website and forum over at www.bg2mod.com.

Are going to see an update before News Year's Eve?

Posted by: Tjoppen Dec 28 2014, 02:58 AM

Greenlight would be interesting, but past experiences with Valve aren't really encouranging.
