Good evening everyone!

This news is not directly related to BFME modding, but it is related to our T3A:Online server, the best way to play BFME online!

Starting today, I'll be hosting a daily game of standard BFME1 (patch 1.05) in the T3A:Online lobby.

I'll be hosting at 22:00 Paris time (click here to see what time that is for you) every day (unless something gets in the way, in which case I'll post about it on Revora).

Come join me!

NOTE: Please make sure you have refreshed your NAT before joining or hosting a game (unless you have followed THORONGIL's instructions regarding port forwarding and options.ini changes, which can be found here:

In case you haven't set up T3A:Online already (shame on you!), read all about restoring BFME multiplayer right here on our website:

I hope to see you online. Remember, if my game is full, just start one of your own!

We are currently starting up work again, slowly. I am working on finding voice actors and improving gameplay and design.

Any chance that we will get an update a fully functioning Athens faction before the end of the summer?

It's awesome! Thank you really ^^ BTW i was thinking to some details. It's great how you managed to create something of un-related with 300 (i don't "dislike" too much the movies/comic, but they're something apart). But risking spite from some other fans, i would put in question the same presence of Leonidas as hero... it could not make more sense to put as main hero Archidamus II or some other kings or general of Sparta? Another pair of details: i've noticed how you've created a basic ensign with the "A" for Athenians, i can't recall if the Golden Age of Athenes had a specific sign/ensign apart the Athena's owl...

We've debated Leonidas' presence extensively in the past, but reached the conclusion that in this individual case, coolness precedes accuracy. It'd be easy enough to just change his name to Pleistarchus or Pleistoanax (or to one of Pleistarchus' uncles, more fittingly), but we prefer keeping this pop-culture touch stone for people who aren't history buffs ;)

Yeah, i understand, in this way it could attract more people. BTW I've noticed however in one of the older news that there are flags with the little owl

Mhm, the owl is represented in Athenian banners and shields.

Graphically this mod is really impressive, great models and skins.
The map Corinth also looks very good. Good object placement, nice map props, good texturing.
The background music is also very nice.
