Re: How to get Battlegrounds (BRPG or BGE) to run on nVidia PCs

The latest word is that nVidia has released new GeForce drivers that allow BRPG and BGE to run properly. It would be nice to hear from users for whom this has resolved the issue.

How to get Battlegrounds (BRPG or BGE) to run on nVidia PCs

Mike, a BRPG user, has managed to get BRPG running on his nVidia-equipped Win 10 PC. This wasn't possible for the past couple of years, as originally noted in this forum thread and discussed more at length in this one . Below, I'll post his step-by-step instructions, which will hopefully get both BR...

Re: Which virtual tabletop should I use?

Welcome, Madamx. It would help if you mention what RPG system/s you plan to play and what operating system you use. For free VTTs, go here and scroll down to the "Free" section. Battlegrounds (aka BRPG) isn't free, but it's great for in-person play with a projector or HDTV. Do you plan to use real m...

Re: Latest Windows 10 update breaks BPRG?

There's no installer. You just uncompress the zip file that you downloaded.

Do you instead mean it doesn't LAUNCH or RUN? If so, do you have an nVidia GeForce graphics card?

Re: Video backgrounds

Welcome, Michael. Adding the ability to play videos to Battlegrounds would be a pretty simple matter. In fact, it's already got the QuickTime plugin in the Xtras folder, and other video formats could also be supported pretty easily. Unfortunately, I'm no longer developing Battlegrounds at this time....

Re: BGE doesn't work on Mac OSX 10.13 High Sierra

BRPG and BGE only work on Mac OS X v10.1-10.6 (aka Snow Leopard). Which no one uses anymore. If you mean do they work on modern versions of Mac OS, the answer is no, they don't.

Welcome, Zakharov. After making/importing the deck, I would flip over all the cards to be face-up, then lay out all cards spread out (using the Stagger command, as shown in the tutorial videos), and would then proceed to order my deck by setting the stacking order of each card in the deck.

Re: BGE doesn't work on Mac OSX 10.13 High Sierra

That's right. As noted on the System Requirements page for BGE , the program only worked on Mac OS X v10.1 through 10.6. I'll issue you a refund. There was a Kickstarter campaign to try to fund a major update to BGE and BRPG which would have made the apps usable on modern Macs and OSes, but it faile...

Re: Prototyping 2-parter

While the host should certainly maintain a degree of determinant control in-game, the possibility to "break" a game is present if a player (jerk, :evil: ) simply refuses to transfer ownership of a lost/captured piece. Just so you know, in BGE the Host can always take back control of a component by ...

Re: Prototyping 2-parter

How would BGE know what a capturing move is? In some games, you might need to jump a piece (e.g., checkers). In others, to land on a piece (e.g., chess). And there are surely other types of actions that would result in capturing a piece, in other games (e.g., a successful Tractor Beam dice roll in a...

Welcome, -EW-. 1. No, the licenses are tied to a specific computer. You would need two 2-Player Client licenses ($30 total), and install one license on each computer. When either computer logs into the others' game session, 4-player games can be run, since the "seats" add up. So you'd be paying $5 m...

Hi Kytrin,

Yes, if you move BRPG out of its folder, it won't find the Xtras folder, which contains the "included" Shockwave, which is why it asks for Shockwave.
