The entire BG website received an overhaul today, to add a section that covers the soon-to-be-released Battlegrounds Gaming Engine (BGE) virtual tabletop program.

I just deleted about 20-25 spambot accounts, and banned a bunch of IP addresses to prevent them from registering again.

So much for getting close to 2000 registered forum users. :roll:

I added a new animated GIF to this BGE page. I hope it gives a sense of the various types of games that BGE can be used to play.

I added a "QuickStart Guide for BGE" PDF to the Downloads page. It should help new BGE users get up-to-speed with the software quickly.

BGE game hosts may wish to email this PDF to players they have invited to participate in their games, if they have never used BGE before.

I've added a few more entries over the last couple of days to the list of non-rpg-oriented virtual tabletop software.

I've updated the list of Mapping apps and Virtual Tabletop apps on the Links & Resources page.

Specifically, I added Ortelius to the list of Mapping apps, and 3DVT and MyRPG to the list of VT apps.

I updated a couple of the pictures (#18 and #19) on the second BRPG Screenshots page.

I've (finally!) added a Testimonials page to the main website.

Hopefully, this is just a starting point to build on over time, and more users will submit their own testimonials about BRPG and BGE.

Personally, I think there should be more quotes about the software itself and less about the service/support stuff, but my selection was limited to the quotes I had on file. So please, send more testimonials.

Note: If you submit one, please mention how it should be "signed" (with your forum username, real name, initials, etc.).

Thanks. I hope it helps to make it more evident to potential customers that there are up to 33 really nice freebies available for the software, which should go a long way towards offsetting the cost of the software license/s. Actually, there are many more, but the rest can be found on the BG forums.

For those who aren't keeping an eye on the "News & Updates" page...

I've released a “cinematic-style” teaser trailer intended to help promote BRPG. Check it out here. Then I’d appreciate it if you would help me get the word out by sharing the link on your social media feeds.

The frame transition effects combined with the short duration of each frame make it impossible to read the text much less admire the screenshots. Definitely need to slow it down / make it longer.

Two problems with that:

1) I wanted to keep it to around a minute in length.

2) It's all edited to the beat of the music, which I've already paid the license for, and it would be a tremendous effort to re-time the whole thing.

I realize most people will miss some of the content, but it's easy enough and short enough to watch a second time, if needed.

Well, even watching it a dozen times I'd have a hard time absorbing any information from it if I was new to BG.
