(For those who don't know, "Battlegrounds: RPG Edition" (aka BRPG) is cross-platform virtual tabletop software which can be used to play RPGs, boardgames, and wargames online or offline)

Let's recap the last 12 months:

In July 2009, I released BRPG v1.4h and BRPG v1.4i, 2 commercial Game Boxes ("Valkenburg Castle" and "Asteroid Zero-Four"), 1 free artpack ("Component Sewers"), and 1 commercial artpack ("Kepli's Tree Pack")
In August 2009, I released 2 free artpacks ("Vry's PC & NPC Tokens" and "Vry's Monster Tokens"), 1 free game conversion ("Aliens"), and an updated User Manual
In September 2009, I released BRPG v1.4j and 2 free game conversions ("Zombie Plague" and the "Zombie Plague Expansion Pack")
In October 2009, I released BRPG v1.4k and BRPG v1.4L, and 2 free artpacks ("Cyberdrake's Indoor Map Tiles" and "Cyberdrake's Outdoor Map Tiles")
In December 2009, I released BRPG v1.5, and 2 free game conversions ("Dead of Night" and the "Aliens Variant")
In January 2010, I released BRPG v1.5a and BRPG v1.5b, 1 commercial artpack ("DevilDan's Monster Tokens"), and 1 commercial game conversion ("Search for the Emperor's Treasure")
In February 2010, I released BRPG v1.6 and 1 free game conversion ("Close Assault, Basic Game")
In March 2010, I released BRPG v1.6a
In April 2010, I released BRPG v1.6b
In May 2010, I released BRPG v1.6c and 1 commercial game conversion ("Close Assault, Advanced Game")
In June 2010, I released BRPG v1.6d and BRPG v1.6e, and 1 commercial artpack ("Mapping Tiles Pack")
In July 2010, I released BRPG v1.6f and BRPG v1.6g, a free artpack ("Dice Pack"), and two free game conversions ("Chunky Fighters" and "D-Day Dice")

So in the last year I count:
16 releases of BRPG (averaging 1.33 releases per month)
11 game conversions (3 commercial, 8 free)
9 artpacks (3 commercial, 6 free)
An updated User Manual (covers up through BRPG v1.4i)


Now let's look forward a bit:

In August 2010, I will be releasing v1.6h, and updating the two free sample adventures and all the game conversions to take advantage of all the new features added to BRPG since they were originally released.

In September 2010, I plan on creating a number of tutorial videos for BRPG and updating the User Manual once again (to cover up through BRPG v1.6h, and to release the User Manual in final form).

In October 2010, I hope to finally usher in full Flash support.

At which point it will be time to put BRPG v1.x into "maintenance mode" and start development on the next VT program,
Battlegrounds Gaming Engine (aka BGE). It should be released in early to mid December, just in time for Christmas.

Man it's been a long time since I posted an update here!

The BGE program I mentioned in my last post was eventually released in June 2011, and is now at v1.7. Anyone interested in boardgames/wargames/card games should check it out (we all
need hobbies besides map-making, right?) There are a bunch of digital game conversions available for it (a few are commercial, but most are free downloads).

Anyway, the reason I wanted to bump this thread is to let DJ users know that Battlegrounds Games has an all-new website (same URL as
before), and I'd love it if you would check it out and provide some feedback (even if you have no interest in virtual tabletop gaming). Is the content organized well? Is the writing clear? Too
technical? Does the site work well on your particular browser and platform? (or tablet, or smartphone)
Are the load times for the slideshows reasonable? The site will continue to evolve based on the public's feedback. Constructive criticism is preferred, but not required.

Thanks for reading!

PS: One important addition to the Battlegrounds VTT landscape is that it is now possible to use the software without purchasing a license, by using a low-cost
monthly subscription.
