News and Announcements
Been a while since I posted anything here...
This is what I've been working on for the last month or so. Huge project, please go [check it out](https://battlefrontstats.com).
### Live Statistics Tracker
Mod independent of the stat-tracker, this uploads data to the battlefrontstats server in real-time, and gives you a link for an iframe you can toss into OBS or similar. For more info, check out the "profile" page on [battlefrontstats.com](https://battlefrontstats.com)

### Effects Manager
Been working on an external utility that adds a bunch of camera/world controls to the game, meant for cinematic purposes.
This mod for SWBF 2015 enabled the "Hero Blast" gamemode. With the Hero
Blast mod, you could host a private match, and any of your friends could
join you, **without needed the mod themselves**. This brought Dangercat
and I to create a server to host a database of all Hero Blast hosts.
## How to play Hero Blast
You can either download the mod tool yourself, then host a match.
Alternatively, you can simply view the current list of hosts.
Just click the button next to their name to view their account in Origin.
Add them as a friend, and ask them to invite you to their game. No modding
required on your end.
### Using the Mod Files
If you wish to host, using the mod files is easier than ever.
The launcher uses an auto-updater, so your mod files are always up to date.
Simply start the executable, and it'll do the initial configuration.
With the game not running, click the start button. It'll prompt you
to select the game's exe file, do so. The mod is only active when you launch
the game through the manager.
Keep the Hero Blast launcher running with the game. This sends your username
to the server browser, allowing others to play.
