Battleground Europe: v1.33 Open Beta Update

We're on the home stretch with version 1.33 and it's looking good for an Open Beta Test to begin next week. The biggest update, I'm sure you're all aware of, is the switch to a brand new infantry model, texture and animations. We also worked on finding and trying to resolve several outstanding bugs, as well as improving overall performance.


Internal testing of the new infantry is going very well, and we're pretty impressed with what we're seeing. All the LOD models are looking great, and we've been having fun blowing each other up and sniping each other off high ledges, testing the ragdoll animations. In order to get 1.33 out in a timely manner, we've had to move some minor feature completion to a subsequent update. Some of these are features are being worked on, but not considered "deliverable ready". 1.33 Open Beta will release without the following features on infantry:

Variable Faces
High Command Uniforms

Some of these features require more work so will make it out in a future update. We're happy to announce that the paratroopers are finished, and looking spectacular, and that we've added a 4th level of detail that should improve performance for some. Several outstanding ragdoll bugs were fixed, and some animations replaced. The first person view, things like hands and arms, remain unchanged for the time being.


In addition to the new infantry, a lot of work was done working on identifying and trying to fix old bugs, such as the CTDs, the Mission Results Pending, and the Concussion bug. An audit was performed to strip out and optimize some stuff in the code and how it loads to improve performance and kill the memory leak that was plaguing players.


As usual with any update, the readme on 1.33 is extensive. There were fixes to the horizontal stabilizers on some of the 109s, an upgrade to the core audio engine, a reduction in memory allocation, a possible fix for the firing bug, and much more.

We plan on hosting some Open Beta events this time, so keep checking the front page of the website for announced dates and times. We look forward to getting your input!

World War II Online has come a long way. I played it at launch and it was "ok" but not great. The game begged a better connection speed which I did not have at the time. However, I played it just a few years ago and it was most definately a lot of fun. I would have stayed if my friends would have stayed but they didn't want to pay a sub fee. With a lot of the changes coming, I am tempted to give it a go again. If anyone does try it for the first time make sure you connect up with one of the helpful "clans" in game. It makes a huge difference.

This game is very engrossing and the best part for a guy like me with a family is that you can walk away for a while to deal with RL things and walk back without inconveniencing your buddies.


The subscription price, however is too big as there is a large penalty for people who want month-to-month. I would still be subbing bit the $18/month is a bit steep.
