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.

Hello all!

As you know we've been working on a big update for Battle Grounds, porting it over to the 2013 version of Source and including new features like swivel guns, graphical upgrades and a brand new main menu with a community news feed. Today we are announcing a small, upcoming patch for BG 2.2 which is the first step of rolling out this new content.

The goal of this patch is to try out the main menu and news feed, so that we can test it with the community and polish it for the eventual BG2 3.0 release on Source 2013. In addition to that we have made some long overdue bug-fixes and performance improvements for the current version as well as some extra goodies.

You can expect the new patch within the next week, so keep an eye out!

The main menu with news feed and community updates. With this feed the dev team will be able to post updates directly to the community. Additionally community leaders will be able to post their own updates on clan battles and special, community organized events.

A new and improved loading screen with tips and suggestions on game-play and game modes in the mod.

A long requested community feature is finally here. Information and stats on the many musket types in the game. These weapon cards list vital information like reload speed, accuracy and damage.

Also on offer is a new infantry uniform for the British regulars. Based on the coat facings of the 47th Lancashire regiment, this new coat brings the uniform options up to an equal number of three for both the British and the Americans.

Finally we have a game-play change to one of our maps, Bg_Trenton. This option allows rooftop access along a line of scaffolding, offering the prefect vantage point to rain down musket fire on the square below.

We hope you enjoy this small patch while you wait for the next major update, Battle Grounds 2 Version 3.0

There's usually a server with people on it, sometimes none show up though. Try again some other time.

Hey I would love to play this game, but when I connect to a server the game crashes. I have recently played a match but when the map changed the game immediately crashed. Any help with fixing the crashing?

Strange that your game crashes, are you sure you installed it correctly?

To be certain, you may want to re-install. The link to the download is:

www.bgmod.com/downloads/

If you use windows, click on the 'Battlegrounds 2 2.1.1 Windows' option and download.

If you have done this and it still does not work, try re-installing Source SDK Base 2007 as that is what the game uses as a base. If the problem continues, leave another message on here and we'll get your game working other ways. Also, nice to see a new player with an interest in the game. ^^

What are the requirements to run this game?. I have L4D2 and all the SDK installed, but when run, I get an error Failed SteamStartUp: SteamAPI_Init () failed; not appID Internal error or something. Then I will write the exact error.

To anyone that hasn't played this game/doesn't play it anymore, you should give it another go/start playing it again, it's an epic game. ;)

As Awesome said, you have to restart steam. If that doesn't work, feel free to message on here again and we'll get you sorted. ^^
