    Let's just hope that Disney will just be concerned with the movie and merchandising rights. I read on Steam recently that when Disney shut down LucasArts that some one who was part of the Jedi Knight series released the source code for two of those games, apparently without repercussions. Let's hope they dismiss this as something that is irrelevant, and let us continue to play.

    Accepting Bitcoin donations is easy, all you need is an address and wallet to receive the money, plenty of websites just post an address on their main website or you could do it in the forum, copyright lawyers don't play nice, so it's a good idea to put in some failsafe's just in case, you can also avoid a lot of paypal nastiness if everything goes to hell and they try to shut you down and I suspect they will.

    I looked at this website after quite a few years and I'm amazed at the amount of progress the devs have made, one thing that springs to mind though is where is the source code? I haven't had the chance to have a proper look for it but one way to prevent this whole project from falling apart if legal issues bring it down is to just post up your code online and making it open source.

    Bitcoin addresses look like this and you can send Bitcoins to them through the wallet: 1DFNvBCX2XBE3KaJsKjyWLLPDD5MuxxRiX

    Edit: I just got told about the SWG emu code being on repository or something? Anyway keep up the good work

    I think this is a very important question that will be the deciding factor in weather or not there even is an agreement to honor with disney. If the answer is no it could be a very bad situation we're in.

    This might sound a bit stupid. Bit it's early in the morning and I'm knackered so let me off....

    How do I donate?

    I played SWG back in beta, then US release, then onto EU when that got released 6 month later - I loved the game and even though I've played mmo's for 15years+ I've never had that same feeling that I had with SWG. Then SOE did what they did best, screw it all up and destroy what was, in my opinion the best game ever made! But no their only aim was money, which meant they had to try and make it more and more like a WoW clone which eventually had the exact opposite outcome and the true "SWG community" as I like to call it, left the game, myself included and all my friends etc.

    Long story short, I'm 28 now and I just recently found out about this beauty that SWGemu is! I can't say enough what a great job you guys have done and I hope it will continue for a long long time, cause I've been missing that feeling for many years, and finally it's back! Thanks a lot guys, I'm still very new around here but I will without a doubt from now on do a monthly donation to help the project. Which I think everyone should do.

    NOTE: K&H Bank is our Hungarian bank account from which we pay NPO fees, accounting and lawyer fees.
    Sorry if this question has been asked before, but am I getting this right?
    You guys have to PAY to be a NON PROFIT organisation?

    LOL. Yes, non-profit does not mean no cost. We got lots of those.

    Paypal accepting bitcoins will never happen. If you sign up for a coinbase merchant account they convert the BTC to USD immediately so that you're not at any risk of the price fluctuating; their fees are a whopping 1%. I'll start the donation rally and pledge $150 for a Bitcoin donation button.

    Just curious, what deal do you have with SOE? Disney owns the IP correct?
