So I'm having trouble getting this new patch to work. I've downloaded it, moved bg2 into the sourcemods folder and still haven't gotten it to work.

Think the code of the mod is completely buggered atm as my BG doesn't work either, neither 2.2 or 2.3.

Make sure you merge/overwrite all the files once you're extracted the patch to your bg2 folder.
I hated to have to kill them all, but they had to be taught a lesson.

Yeah I managed to get the game name changed in the steam menu to 2.3 but still gives me the same error (classes differ from server or tables differ from server) forget which one exactly. Even un-installed and re-installed both and went through all the steps again as well still no luck.

so what I did is downloaded bg 2.2 into just the steam folder not the apps or sourcemods subfolders. then downloaded the update,transfered the bg2 file into the sourcemods folder, restarted steam and that got it working somewhat. The main menu works but no servers pop up and if you do the create a game the map won't download. So it appears the patch itself is having issues but that could just be me.

I am unsure what is causing your issues. The patch itself works perfectly fine, other people have been able to load and connect to serves with no issues, so it is not a coding issue with the patch. However the mod is reliant on many files from Half Life 2, so if the install paths are wrong you will have issues. Please make sure you have done the following:

1. Installed Source SDK 2007 in your Steam tools
2. Downloaded and installed Battle Grounds II, Version 2.2 (C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Sourcemods\bg2)
3. Download and extract the patch to (...\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods) folder, overwriting the bg2 folder that is there.
4. Restart Steam and check your library.

I'm sorry if this seems redundant but all of the needed files are in the installer or patch, the steps must be done correctly if you want the mod to work.

If all of those steps have been done correctly then we can start trouble shooting for other issues.

Tried the whole process over again making sure I had all the requirements and followed the process and Now I'm getting hit with a "missing exectuable". Can't even start the old 2.2 mod now. I will note that when I extracted the 2.3 files to the bg folder it didn't say it was overwriting the file.
