  • Bisher waren auf unseren AAPG Gameservern sämtliche Sniper Waffen, also die M24 und die M14 des Designated Marksman verboten. Ab sofort gilt dieses Verbot nur noch für die M24, also die Sniper Klasse/Rolle. Die M14 des Designated Marksman ist ab sofort erlaubt!

    Wir werden beobachten wie sich die Änderung der Regeln auf das Gameplay auf unseren Servern auswirken und dann entscheiden ob diese Regeländerung dauerhaft bleibt. Feedback jederzeit willkommen.

  • Game Update Notes (21 SEP 2017)

    This update is chock-full of bug fixes, quality of life improvements, and content. We are adding two AA2 favorites that have been lovingly updated by our art team for AA:PG. Our community weapon skins are all ready to go and can be used right away! Several maps have received performance improvements. We have created some new options with flashbangs. The tinnitus sound they produce can be uncomfortable to some users, so there are options to make that better while keeping it fair. There are a few weapon balance changes and fixes as well.

    New Maps
    Two favorites from AA2 have returned! Each is a faithful recreation with the same layout and gameplay as the originals with updated visuals.

    Flash Bang Audio Settings

    There is a new setting in the audio settings menu labeled "DISABLE TINNITUS SOUND. It is intended to be used by those that find the tinnitus sound from flashbangs uncomfortable. The normal audio effect of flashbang grenade is a tinnitus sound that plays over other sounds but still allows the player to hear other sounds. This setting, when used, replaces the tinnitus effect with a reduction of volume to 10% of the current setting, restoring to normal over the same time the tinnitus effect would have faded. The in-game effect is to deafen the player for a short time

  • Mit dem kommenden Update für AAPG wird der gute alte VIP Spielmodus zurückkehren. Sicherlich wird es dann auch nur eine Frage der Zeit sein bis die alte klassische Hospital Map wieder spielbar ist. Schade dass es so lange gedauert hat bis der eigentlich beliebteste Spielmodus aus AA2 wieder implementiert wurde, aber ich denke das wird evtl. den ein oder anderen alten AA2 Hasen wieder aus der Versenking locken.

    Available on:
    FLO: Intercept, Slums, Redline, Overload, Inner Hospital, Homestead
    BDX: SpringStreet, Inner Hospital

  • This update fixes some input issues with the UI, adds a few new UI features, adds army facts and trivia to the AAR screen, fixes a few audio issues and closes a few memory leaks. If you haven't heard already, we are hosting a map building competition where we will select 3 maps as winners and include them with the game as an official map. The early review date has passed, but there is still time to get your map in by the Feb 1 submission deadline. There are several servers running the maps submitted for early review, so be sure to check them out and leave the authors your feedback on the workshop or our forums!

    • A Last Man Standing message will be displayed when no other teammates are alive or can be revived
    • Players may disable challenge and achievement notifications via the Scoring Notification toggle in the settings
