    Basilisk Publish 7 Merge

    June 7th 2015
    The SWGEmu Team




    Basilisk Publish 7 Merge - June 7th 2015



    On Sunday, June 7th, 3 AM EST (
    9 AM CET - Check your local time here), 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 continued support. We hope to see you on Basilisk as soon as it's back online.
