    Basilisk Publish 5 Merge

    May 18th 2014
    The SWGEmu Team

    Basilisk Publish 5 Merge - May 18th 2014

    On Sunday, May 18th, 5 am EST (11 am CET), Basilisk will be taken offline. Unfortunately we do not have an ETA on when it will be back. During this time, the code from Nova will be merged with the Basilisk code.

    This means that any changes that were made on Nova, will now be on Basilisk.

    As it is with every merge, it's expected to be unstable for the next week or so and bugs are
    inevitably going to pop up. Any and all bugs found should be reported on our Bug Tracker (Mantis). If you don't know how to report bugs, you can find more info here.

    Basilisk patch notes will be added at the beginning of the merge.
    • If you need support please submit a ticket to support or join us at live support
    • As always TC: Nova and Basilisk server status are available on our front page www.swgemu.com or on our IRC #status channel.
    We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your continuous support. We hope to see you on Basilisk as soon as it's back online.

The project is a long way from completion but looking back at this past year I am very excited and optimistic about what 2014 will bring us.

    A big special thanks to our EC/Support/CSR/QA/Mod folks. The work you guys do for us all on a daily basis isn't always easy, fun and often times thankless but you guys still do an amazing job and we all appreciate the hardwork.

    Oh, and happy new year everyone, party hard!!!!

    I think one of the major high points of the project was the move to the new Gerrit/Jenkins - the Community should be thanking those that made this move. That makes contributing so much quicker/easier. We also got some new devs, QA and staff that are great and easy to work with.

    I think it's really awesome that BE, DE, CH, and mounts are now starting to appear on Nova. What great progress by the guys and gals working on that.

    It was busy year for me. I was involved with the team and spent tons of time working on GCW and Player Cities which made it to Basilisk. Thanks to the whole community, QA, Staff and Devs in getting all the research & testing done. One thing I learned about myself is that I probably prefer bug fix / QA more so than new feature implementation.

    Work picked up a lot toward the end of the year and I was AWOL for a bit. I'm back to fixing occasional bugs and hope to continue doing so.

    To be honest, when I first decided to start submitting patches, I wasn't sure if they'd be approved or not. I only had the barest idea of what I was doing. I've never been a professional programmer, and hadn't done any coding for about a decade. I started with small tweaks and was surprised when they were approved. I kept branching out and doing larger and larger things. I've certainly made mistakes and have had to rewrite a lot of my own code multiple times to get it approved (and even afterwards when it broke things). I've certainly learned a lot this past year and I want to give special thanks to the other developers (especially TheAnswer, Loshult, and ElPete) for putting up with my inexperience and helping me along the way.

    I was completely surprised the day I was promoted to developer. I never expected it, given my limited experience and ability. Since then, as before, I've tried to familiarize myself with more and more of the code base and become as competent as I can be. There's still a lot I do not know and much that is outside of my experience or beyond my ability. Regardless, I want to do what I can to keep this project moving along, and to learn more as I go.

    It's been an honor to have had the opportunity to help this past year to rebuild this game that we all love and miss. I have every intention of continuing to do so. I'm currently working on pets and hope to have them in as functional a state as possible in time for our next publish to Basilisk. In the mean time (and beyond too!), I'd like to encourage you all to spend time on Test Center Nova. The more bugs we can catch and squash the better. QA team members, Community Testers, and all the others who choose to regularly spend time on Nova have my deepest respect. Without you all, our game would not be as good as it is. Hats off to you all!

With Gerrit and Jenkins this process became quick and easy. Two really big publishes this year and the size of the list of changes in each weakly update shows how much faster our progression has been since then.

    We have also introduced the Google Test framework together with the Google Mock framework as our unit test and software integration test frameworks. We can now create unit test for our new code, ensure that the tests passes with every commit through the verification in Jenkins. Hopefully this will save us at least a couple of bugs every now and then. For the Lua part of the code we now use the Busted unit test framework.

    A big thank you to everyone who help us get closer to our goal! Developers, QA, Event Coordinators, CSR, Forum Moderators, Testers, Players, Community and whoever else that I forgot to mention! Let us hope that 2014 will be as progressive as last year and we will soon(tm) be at our goal!

    After all it is so nice to see that the project goes on in good hands even without me being around too often. There has been such a great progress and seems things go on quite smooth compared to previous years.

    Hope to see the project gets close to completion this year, keep up the good work guys!

The opportunity to interact and get to know them has been an opportunity I would never have experienced any place else. I have had the opportunity to learn more about this game than I ever thought possible. Not just the game, but how it is put together and the people that have made it possible. My awe from a year ago has turned into true respect and admiration for all those who give their time to volunteer. My deepest thanks to everyone for giving me this opportunity to be of service to the project and the community.

    Pub 3 was huge. 10 months of hard work. It brought the GCW to life again. Those wars are still waging across Basilisk. Themeparks, POI's, Caves, and Quests helped to fill out a lot of the old feel of the game. Pub 4 was even bigger. In 3 months time. That went by so fast it seems time stood still. It brought the ability to master the Bio-Engineer profession. Imperial and Marauder themeparks. And DOTS. Tons of new loot items were added. Now we are into Pub 5. Creature Handler and Driod Engineer have begun to take shape. Watching pets and droids follow players around on Nova has ignited that old feel yet again. And yes, even the Jedi progression is getting some serious attention. It's been a truly amazing year for me.

    I look forward to 2014 and the changes it will bring. I get excited to see what will come next or what new person I will meet. Most of all, I want to thank our community for all the support and dedication to the project.

    PS. Get on Nova and lend a hand. There is always something to do.

    These words i type to all of you here are spawned with the utmost gratitude, respect, and pride for recently being able to chat/test/work in a more official capacity each free day as a new member of the SWGEMU Team.

    I am very much looking forward to 2014 and helping out as much as possible; while hopefully learning as much as possible too.

    Happy Holidays to you all...and to all, a good next Year!

Our community is growing, our numbers on Facebook page and our Facebook group are going up at the steady pace. I should also mention our twitter and G+ page too. Like every year we had our ups and downs, but we are still here, going strong and we are step closer to our goal.

    I want to thank our great SWGEmu team for everything they do day in and day out, and I want to thank you all, the greatest and most dedicated community any game has ever had, for your continuous support and... well for being made of awesome.

    Happy New SWGEmu Year folks!!!

    The strides the team makes each week in development, support, testing, etc leave me excited for our future. They continue to amaze me with their steadfast devotion of time and effort to get us to the end goal. The time that each one of you in the community put towards testing, playing, and reporting what you find makes the job of the really smart people around here (not me) a lot easier. Please continue to do so, and we will realize our shared dream in due time.

    Those among the community that continue to peruse the forums and offer sage advice to newcomers and those in question, I thank you. Its the collective experience and shared desire that make this a special place. Continue to submit your findings, report wrong doing, help out your fellow players, and be genuine movers in the community. With all your help and support, we will be able to give the team the tools and support they need to see this endeavor through.

    So, continue to help out other players in game, offer suggestions with merit, submit ideas and reports, draft guides for knowledge enhancement, and make our little corner of the galaxy a better place. Happy New Year!

My wish for 2014 is that there would be more people interested in spending there free time aiding the project as members of staff.

    The project it self had a bit of a slow start of the year, but have really picked up pace toward the end. We have seen two publishes merged with Basilisk in a short time and currently we can see CH pets/droids on Nova and Jedi unlock been worked on, even some AI work have been started. Really excited to see what the project have in store for us in 2014!

    I would like to thank every one making this project possible, from coders, testers, support to the ones donating there hard earned cash so we can hold both our servers up and running, thank you all.

    CSR--(Customer Support Representative)
    We work hard trying to get everyone's tickets answered as well as live chat support. Everyone has been great working with us to determine if their issue is a bug or just something simple. Live Support has shown to be a great addition to support. With every new system there are pros and cons but as of right now things seems to be going smoothly. Everyone seems to be passing by the rules and not reading them to understand they can not have Multiple Accounts. The CSR's are working to get these entered and get players back playing as quickly as possible but you must read the rules and see what information we need to make the process go a little quicker.

    EC--(Event Coordinator)
    Our Events are picking up and that is good to see. Developers have helped us work up 2 different types of mobs now, we now have event mobs for those guilds or cities that wish to have a private event or we have our regular lootable mobs for public events. Staff will be hosting a Staff Event every month starting in January. Not every event will give out a badge but there will be lootable mobs. We ask that even if all you require is a system message for a player event that you fill out an event form as we now have a calendar that staff uses to keep up with the events. Your event will be placed on our calendar so no other event is scheduled at the same time. We hope to see our calendar grow for the upcoming year.

    We have lost a lot of Staff Support members and we have gained some as well. Each and every one did great and are doing great in helping us keep this project going. For those no longer with us, you will be missed and we thank you for the work you put in as volunteers for this project. As for those that are with us now, It is great having you here and get ready here comes 2014.

    Happy Holidays!!


    We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of our community members for your support, donations and your time spent with our project. 2013 had a slow start, but picked up momentum towards the end, letting us see pets and droids running around on Nova and commits toward creature AI. With your continued support we hope to keep our momentum and take our project to new heights in 2014.

    We are proud to be part of such a dedicated community. Happy New Year!

    SWGEmu Launchpad Update - 11/22/13

    Some people have reported seeing strange text in their chat windows when they trade or examine objects. It looks something like this...

    It is not a serious issue, it is just an enabled debugging mod. Other than that text has no real impact on the game client, but can be kinda annoying. We have uploaded a patch that will fix/remove that.

    1. Run SWGEmu Launchpad
    2. Press Full Scan
    3. When asked "Do you want to restore config files too" press Yes. <--- That part will fix the problem
    4. At the end of Full scan Game Settings will open, you will have to set your game screen resolution again and any other setting you had before.

    NOTE: Profiles folder, your UI settings, macros and notes will not be affected by this.

    SWGEmu Launchpad Update Part 2. - 11/25/13

    A lot of Anti-Virus programs heave been reporting gl06_r.dll file as infected. And though we dont have any reason to believe that it is, The answer has checked it and found out that our client doesn't even use that file, it is completely unnecessary. TheAnswer updated the Launchpad and it will no longer download it. Anyone else that still has it in their client folder can just delete it.

    SWGEmu Launchpad Update Part 3. - 11/26/13

    SWGEmu Launchpad Update Part 4. - 12/05/13

    Pre 14.1 movement option and custom FPS added to the launcher (30FPS min - 200FPS max).

    That is all...

    We apologize for this inconvenience and we thank you for your continuous support.

    Basilisk Publish 4 Merge

    October 25th 2013
    The SWGEmu Team

    Basilisk Publish 4 Merge - November 4th 2013

    On Monday, November 4th, (exact time will be added later), Basilisk will be taken offline. Unfortunately we do not have an ETA on when it will be back. During this time, the code from Nova will be merged with the Basilisk code.

    This means that any changes that were made on Nova, will now be on Basilisk.

    As it is with every merge, its expected to be unstable for the next week or so and bugs are
    inevitably gone pop up. Any and all bugs found should be reported on our Bug Tracker (Mantis). If you don't know how to report bugs, you can find more info here.

    Basilisk patch notes will be added at the beginning of the merge.
    • If you need support please submit a ticket to support.
    • As always TC: Nova and Basilisk server status are available on our front page www.swgemu.com or on our IRC #serverstatus channel.
    We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your continuous support. We hope to see you on Basilisk as soon as it's back online.
