The Battle Grounds 2(BG2) is a Half-Life 2 multiplayer modification based on the revolutionary war. It is the sequel to the popular HL1 mod with even more features and possibilities. The British Army and its Native American tribal allies engage in battle against the United States Continental Army and local militia forces. Interactivity is a very important factor in this mod and team play is as important as ever before. Take aim and fire muskets, prepare bayonets and take control of the battlefield to succeed in your campaign for final victory. Combat will vary from long-range rifle marksmanship to brutal close quarters hand-to-hand melee fighting. You will need a mix of first person combat skills and quick-thinking strategy to survive. So prepare yourself to do battle for your side and to meet the enemy head-on. Only one side can be victorious.
FIX for the Assault crash bug is now AVAILABLE from bgmod.com
Posted by Nathan_Hale on Apr 24th, 2010
Tonight we have an immediate fix for the crash issues with the Fortress Assault map. Mapper Jake Parlay explains:
As many of you know, the new Assault map for 2.0 has been causing some server crashes, specifically when the British successfully defend the fort until time expires. HP and I scrambled today to come up with a fix, and are very pleased to report that we solved it.
The file should be placed in your BG2/maps/ directory. For anyone curious, the bug was related to the logic and entity system that controls the timing of the map. I also used this opportunity to reduce the flag capture time for the Command Post Roof area, from 12 to 6 seconds.
If anyone has any Assault map feedback or findings, feel free to report them here or use the other feedback threads/areas on this site. Good luck and happy hunting.
Thanks to Jake and the team for their work.
