MPC (textures and mapping)
William (Contributed some lovely models)
Kriboez (Knife model)
Friagram (Modeling contributions)

Without the help and dedication of all these people none of this would have happened, thank you all very much. If I have forgotten or overlooked anyone's contribution, it was not intentional and I am very sorry.

We hope you enjoy this latest addition to The Battle Grounds, have a very Merry Christmas!

The Battle Grounds 2 Development team.

Nice to see this is still around. I remember back when this was still being developed for the original HL, and asking if cannons would be added. laughing.gif

Many thanks for the continued effort in keeping bg2 alive and improving it, I'm looking forward to checking out the new additions in 2.2 over the holidays.


Again, thank you to all involved, and a merry christmas and happy holidays to the community as a whole. :)

What do you mean by "after I use the 2.2 installer"?

If you download that and run it, it should point automatically to the appropriate Steam subdirectory, overwriting (and thereby updating) any existing bg2 installation that you might have in your sourcemods folder, after which the updated bg2 2.2 should be able to be launched as usual from your steam library or via shortcut if one is created.

I have no personal experience with Desura, but I don't think the 2.2 update is being distributed that way (yet?), so your best option is probably to just not use Desura for this version of The Battle Grounds, possibly requiring you to deactivate/uninstall 2.1 under Desura first.

I would agree with that. Download from our site here at BGmod.com or directly from ModDB without using Desura. Install 2.2 following the instructions, then restart Steam. Once you restart Steam 2.2 should be in your games list. Make sure you have have Source 2007 Base installed.

Yes, just use WinRAR, or whatever ZIP program you have and extract over the 2.1.1 bg2 folder and it should overwrite and add the new things but keeping the older maps in there. I think thats how I did it and I still have all the 2.0-2.1.1 maps I got.

Your map folder will be fine. The new update will just update the maps that have been edited in the new version.
