Personally i prefered 0.17 the guns felt more powerful now they sound like pop-guns and the bayoneting isnt as good i can barely hit anything with the guns the new sight isnt much help either. Im hoping its just me getting used to it i played 0.17 for a long time on the bright side the maps are sweet and the animations are getting pretty good now we just need to see other players using the bayonets. All in all if your new to this mod try it its bloody great fun if you loved 0.17 well feel the changes and see if its still as good as it was.

The game won't start up for me. I press the button and it says loading, but it never starts up. Clicking on the desktop icon gives the "This program has performed an illegal operation". I'll stick to bg1 I guess

Well I suppose back then it was also hard to fire and get a good hit and also shows why it took so long to fire the gun.

I have to say the visuals are getting better and with the maps, so great job on the release. My only complaint is the accuracy on the rifle way to good, I don't think a guy from the other side of the map should be able to kill you with one shot! Also it seems the musket is worst in accuracy, don't want it to good either cause hey this is the 1700's. But other than that its still fun as hell!! keep up the great work!!!

Its true i am getting used to it infact im now in the top 10 on the First Sir Tronts alot server 7 actually yay so im getting used to it slowly and the melee is actually better paced i guess i just played the other version for so long i got set in my ways.

Still annoyed with the sound though the muskets just sound too weak but overall having played it for nearly 2 days straight (that proved its good and addictive in itself) im having a ball now still some bugs like i occasionally go flying up into the air and fall to my death but im sure the devs will work it out.
