Post news Report article RSS Feed Movie Battles II V0.0.1 & V0.0.2 Patches Released!

The next two updates to Movie Battles II are here, featuring a number of fixes found in the V0 release. However, expect even more in the future!

Posted by MaceMadunusus on Jul 28th, 2010

The next two updates to Movie Battles II are here with the v0.0.1 patch required for both players and servers and then the server side only v0.0.2 patch which fixes a crash bug.

Before we begin, I would also like to say congratulations to Zudni for being promoted to the lead of Co-leader of Movie Battles II. You're work has been great on this team, and it can only become greater. You are an excellent team member and I hope we can work together for as long as possible.

If you already know about the mod you can download here either through a full v0.0.2 release or through incremental patches based on your current version. Please note, that the full v0.0.2 release is a clean release meaning that you should delete previous versions of MBII and then install. If you are only downloading the incremental patches then there is no need to worry.

Scroll down lower for a full v0.0.1 and v0.0.2 changelog from v0. As well as the addition of Powerbattles to the addon section of ModDB.

For those that are new to Movie Battles II here are some screenshots as well as a promotional video that came with Version 0 Release as well as a preview for an upcoming map, Cloud City.

PowerBattles V5.4

PowerBattles is a Third Party Movie Battles II addon created by Hawk. Here is a small quote from him about what it is all about.

Hawk wrote:Powerbattles is an addon that takes base MB maps and gives them a outrageously overpowered FA lineup. Sporting over 45 classes that include things such as flying nuke ARCs, fleas with sniper rifles, wallhackers, demons, suicide bombers, baseball bat wielding women, spies, pokemon, superheroes, Mario and many more. There's even a mandalorian with a projectile rifle for the nostalgic. With so many diverse classes, all loaded with ridiculous power there is something fun for everyone. Try it yourself and see.

Awesome game, problem is that it's played more like death match and less like movie battles.

Agreed with you there, nothing we can really do about how people act when they play.

Personally I was always a fan of the "Authentic" mode .. I wish more people felt like me though - Some day I might buy a server 'n make a 24/7 Authentic server.

Also: Woooot! Powerbattles! :P this gamemode *must* be tried guys; it's hilarious!
