Hi all!

Hope y'all have had a good year, despite everything going on just now at least. AQT and I wanted to share with you some good news for Return to Jinglin' Town.

We've spent the last couple months fixing up some of the issues with the map and adding some new features to be released today in v1.1!

Here's what's new in this version.

Multiplayer-compatible Campaign mode

Perhaps the most notable change is the addition of An Xmas Tale, an abridged, co-operative version of the Campaign that you can play online/over LAN with friends! Obviously due to the limited nature of Battlefront, it's not quite as extensive as our singleplayer Campaign, but it's still loads of fun in its own rite.

More music tracks

There were some key Christmas songs that were missing from v1.0, such as O Holy Night, Deck the Halls, and some classic carols such as I Saw Three Ships. We've also added some more Christmas tunes by Sufjan Stevens, since his Christmas albums are utterly fantastic and their tone fits quite well with the rustic theming of Jinglin' Town.

General improvements

Finally, we've made various general improvements to the map and modes, such as but not limited to:

  • Better player feedback for the Campaign's tunnel puzzle
  • Fixed graphical issues with various textures and models
  • More AI bots in Conquest by default
  • Fixed broken music in some game modes in network matches
  • Improved sound design - now you can hear the terrifying sounds of snowballs and presents whizzing past you! Also Yoda Elves now make "interesting" noises
  • Improved AI pathing in tight areas such as around fences
  • More hints added to the Hints screen in Campaign
  • Detpacks and Mines aren't as easy to destroy, making them easier to use effectively
  • Buffed Snowball Sniper Rifle against vehicles
  • Improved weapon loadout for Snow Spy and Candy Cane Officer (ALL and IMP officer)

And that just about covers it! Download v1.1 with the links below.

Have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year as always!

Hey guys, I'm not sure what's going on with the mod, but A Christmas Tale keeps crashing. I have the 1.3 r130 patch installed and other mods run smoothly. Not sure what's with this one.

Hmm, could you try removing some other mods from your addon folder?

That's probably why. Which mods would not work?

We're not entirely sure just yet. Try removing all but the 1.3 patch, remaster (if you have it installed), and XM2.

I LOVE THIS CAMPAIGN. The Ideas for the Missions are super cool and fun. The Voicelines are very high quality for a BF2 Mod and overall its just perfect. Something i want to point out here, is the music. It´s just the perfect music for everything that happens. I laughed so much, when "Der Walkürenritt" or in English probably:"The Valkuryride?" came and i was bombarded with laseres from evil reindeers....That was just awsome :3
Thank you for this Christmas Campagne i never knew i wanted it

Oh and by the way, could you tell me the title of the Metal-Version of "You better watch out" from the Bossfight against Atnas Clause in his Sleigh? I must have overlooked it in the credits. ^^
