    Yes, SOE still holds patent rights on SWG though.

    Here's my know little about the situation tid bit even if you hate those. Disney's two primary concerns would be is someone making profits off of something they own and is this emu/admins hurting the disney image in anyway? I'm sure they have been watching. At least a little bit. Maybe sent basement corner cubicle to check it out. Sounds/looks to me like y'all are doing a great job with everything. I as everybody else hopes Disney keeps their power at bay. I have never seen such a complicated emu run so well.

    Legal Team

    Just a thought and this may have already been discussed somewhere, but I was just thinking that it might be possible to find someone in the community that either works for or runs a law practice. Maybe they would be will to contribute to the project by doing some legal work pro bono.

    Anyways, just a thought. Thanks for all you guys do.

    After looking at the expenses, if someone could do this it'd actually save us a LOT of money.

    Is it Disney or Sony kicking up a stink about this emulator? Cant see why as the game is offically dead and theres no money being made to run this emulation just server expenses right? Or is it just corporate greed on there part I wonder?

    Non of them have done some thing against the Emu yet as far as i know. If some one would do some thing, I think it would be Disney to protect the Star Wars IP

    In November we got from donations: $2,997.81.
    November had the following expenses:

    PayPal fees = $175.12
    K&H Bank = $2,293.00
    Hosting Services, Inc = $226.15
    FDC Servers.net, LLC = $199.00
    Assembla, Inc = $60.00
    Softlayer = $1638.20
    TOTAL EXPENSES = $3,457.21


    November had a total shortfall of $479.66 with a final PayPal account balance of $6,121.68

    Actually that equals $4591.47 can you explain the $1100 difference?

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.
    My feelings exactly and I too will donate monthly because no other MMO I've played ever came close. The work you people are doing with this EMU is astounding and I hope Disney doesn't cause any future trouble. The people playing SWGEMU aren't exactly your standard MMO players and would mostly likely NOT play SWTOR or any other lame..dumbed down future Star Wars MMO that Disney/EA would produce.

    Keep up the great work and thank you!

    Saw that too. Wondering if it's just a mistake in calculations.

    Sorry about that.

    I'm passing the word to my guild with advice to pass it along to their other friends. That declining balance needs to be fixed, especially if we have any serious correspondence with Disney. I'm broke and yet I contribute every month, others with jobs and the like should easily do so, and I'd bet many haven't even thought about it. This is a truly awesome effort being carried successfully by some really great and dedicated folk. Those of us who enjoy the fruits of that effort should well be able to keep up with expenses.
