Steam Alpha #6

Wickeds and Residents!
Be ready...!

Alpha test will start on Friday December 14th at 5PM CEST and last until Sunday 16th at 6PM CEST.
During the testing weekend, we will check an all new map, along with all the fixes to the engine and the new stats saving per character.



We are finally a step closer from Beta!

Development went underway after all the hurdles we had to jump to get more members into the team, and what a test do we have this time!

Check below:
  • Backend and stats.

    This might be the less flashy thing of the update, but it's the most important!, now you can create up to 5 characters, customize them with hairstyles, beards and skin tone, and your level and progression is kept and recorded now!

    This was one of the main key milestones we had to reach before attempting to march into Beta, please play and test as much as possible, so we can iron out any bugs remaining, if any.



  • New Map.

    Ready for playtest on this new update, welcome to Moscalvente!

    Sporting 4 contest points, this map is a heavily infantry based one, let the battle begin!


  • Hey!, no more blockouts?, life is not fair sometimes...


  • Reworked Main Menu

    A whole system change, this issue stopped development for a while, since key members of the team that created the old one were no longer with us, leaving no other way for current developers to modify it...

    After a long time working on this along with the new features, it's finally here in a working way (graphically can be polished, but it's in a fully workable state)
    Take a look!

    Resident Menu
    Wicked Menu

    This is just the main screen, everything from character creation, to equipment and clothing can be used and it will be saved on the backend!

    This is a really important milestone for the project, and we will keep making it better!



  • Backend, API, Communication

    Arguably one of the less chatted topics from the game, but what makes it possible for the current objectives completed, is the backend implementations...

    All the work that went into the game/backend communication is what makes possible to have the main menu working, and that your stats and stuff are saved to the game database, both code into the engine and into our backend was created to make this possible.



  • Bug Fixes
    This is certainly something that the community always asks for, and yes, this time is no different, several fixes were done to abilities like the Chameleon ability not making you completely invisible to the enemy, or the grenade jump animation error, or the keg!, but most importantly, gameplay main issues like map rotation being stuck, or Residents spawning on Wickeds spawn point






Enjoy this update!

We will be back with more information next week about your findings during the weekend, and what will our next steps be!

Hi, my first thoughs of the new main menu,

Like wtf, it's really basic and ugly, the one before had a way better look. or maybe i didnt play for few months and missed like 2 alpha weekends but i know u guys can do this better:)

I cant wait till the game is in beta so more players will come and take a look and maybe donate for better updates:)


Goodluck and lets wait for the test hehe.

This aplha is fairly underwhelming. Game looks questionable, the controls are stiff and there are no one playing.

Any word on when the beta comes out? Might wait till then haha

Also for us fellas that actually bought the key, will we get anything cool when the game comes out?


Cant wait for future updates! Keep up the grind bois

I think it depends on what you bought. I remember giving ~20 euros so I should be getting the following:
Exclusive Weapon Skins Pack
Everything above excluding all rewards which have limits +
This includes 4 exclusive Kickstarter weapon skins + You get the "Supporter Medal" on the forums and in-game

@OxiniX For this version we have completly reworked the MainMenu. Not only the visual thing, this was inded not our focus.
The old system was based on the PlugIn "Coherent". So we created a Menu in HTML and CSS and added this to the Game. But for every interaction between game and "website" we hade to trigger javascript events. This mean hovering Button to play sounds, up to sending outfits to the game. This was a bit complicated and so most of the things does not work. The old "Drag and Drop" system was broken, the outfit was not usable in game. And only charactername but noting else was saved.

But now you can select an outfit which is used ingame, and also all your progress is saved now.

And we now have more security because we used steam authentification.

This time we decided not to complete the visual thing because of several reason.
- This is an alpha and for that its completly ok, that no everything is finished
- We just want to fouc on all the backend stuff. Visual things can be added easy later, but the more important stuff is that everything works.
- We do not want to waste time in optical features. First we want to hear your feedback of the Use.
And because there was no critic at the Menu itself this is a very good sign for us (because normaly everything is bitched by everybody).

So we decided not to work for "beauty" but more for functionality. This is better for us and make the development faster.
And as said we got criticized because of everything independed what we are doing, so we can focus more at the developement and not the try to make it "beauty" for everyone, because this is impossible. This was our mistake for the last year and this is why development sometimes was very slow, because we completed a part and after community feedback we had to rework it again - this costed a lot of time.

Feedback is very helpfull for us, and this is something we ask for. But only critization without arguments does not help anybody.

... I have been playing BFH since 2009, loved every update, loved everything in that game. Was really sad they deleted it, played it until the very end. Then i found this game... looked very promising back in 2015 and 16 but I now... it looks just the same. You keep pushing some updates every few months... but in real did nothing. I thought the game would release quite soon back in 2015. But its damn 4 years later and its still the same. Many people feel the same. And now saying even those who have alpha key dont play it that much anymore... its cause everyone was hyped when he found it... but you made no progress literally. Its a shame, it could be a good game but even if it releases soon (doubt it) I wont even install it. Thats how i see it.

I feel exactly the same, altough I would Install the game and ofcourse give it a try.
I was so hyped back in 2015/2016.. The hyped slowly but surely faded away, it is 2019 now... and I Haven't seen any thing that really helped bringing the hype back.
I currently don't know what the devs are working on, or even if there is a complete Team working seriously on the game. I kinda feel like the project is dying even before it has started. I dont like to be this pessimist but it's how we feel.

Δεν είσαι μόνος σου, μπες στο στρατό 40.000+ παικτών!
