I wish Lucas Arts would just hire the current SWGEmu devs, give them really good jobs and crank out a SWG2, I am sure it would be awesome Honestly it would probably be the only game I would ever again spend money on.
mostly due to the fact that too many people would complain...it is too hard or it takes to long or...saw it too many times on soe forums people complaing that they just got owned.
there will always be complaints from the whiners in any mmo, but the majority of the players understand that many issues can arise from unexpected reactions from code strings, from what i have seen this is like as posted above at least as stable if not more than the original RELEASE of SWG even after the first of many patches to fix the bugs, and patches to fix the patches bugs and so on and so forth. I am loving what the devs are doing, Keep up the great work
Thanks vlada and gang. the update was mucho appreciated. I played from beta swg to 5 months into NGE. i can tell you the new code EMu has built is more responsive,faster and more reliable then original code ever was. I think the only thing i would like to see From SOE is for them to support emu. not give any hand outs but maybe they could give a shout out not to mention maybe some assets. you know they have major redundant drivers. if you believe they lost all of pre cu then you are naive.
You maybe right they don't have much to gain but they do have one thing that they could gain and is very huge and profitable. that is reconnection of EMU. Not only will it show they support indy teams,but also would show their continued support of a product that they know millions of subs paid for and still continue to pay for even tho its free.. Look at garage games all of there games are free yet millions sub to there games and pay to play. WHY?? becasue of the support of them to the community. Thats all we ever wanted from soe from the get go.Its free publicity at the cost of support and what some of there already done assets?
I for one would not like SOE to have anything to do with this emu version. Soe don't do anything for the fun of it and are totally based on making money. They dont listen to their subscribers obviously. If they did, the NGE would've been reversed the first time. After loosing thousands of subs after the NGE, they stuck to their guns and it almost died completely then. Devs with ideas like the NGE can stay away from this true version of SWG.
Swg-emu team is on the right track, I would ride with them any day!
Hi all im new in here
Anyway....is there a thread somewhere that lays out the concept for the game files so a novice could start learning to decipher them? Something like this:
"There are ___ file types in Galaxies, listed below by their extension, general function/purpose, and relationship to the other files:
type __ Purpose ____
type __ Purpose ____
type __ Purpose ____"
I'd love to start documenting (esp droid eng), but I'd like to know the relationship of the files and (hopefully) free software to decrypt them. Thoughts?
I for one have been watching all this from the sidelines for a while. I played SWG almost from the start (when I was all of 11, played with my dad), and it was by FAR the best game I ever played. It got bad when CU hit. Of course, I tried persisting. I loved this game and the people I met and the things I could do. Then the NGE came. And we all know how it goes from there.
Needless to say I was bummed and had no game to play. I decided to try WoW. Played it for a while. It was MAYBE fun for the first year. After that it all began to go downhill. Now it's awful. Bad graphics, no customization, terrible game support... It's worthless and I stopped feeding Blizz my money. I plan on never supporting them again, ever. It wasn't even as good as post-nge star wars.... =I
I had started to like wow at one point but it actually began doing the same thing as SWG.... Bad upgrades left and right. WoW is gonna go up in flames. Just like SWG post-nge :I And the devs will have nobody to blame but themselves. I think it's just ... a mindset. A company reaches a certain size or popularity, forgets why it started in the first place or where it was going or who it was trying to please - and it all comes down to the money. And money is the greatest evil, tbh. Or at least... It sparks the greatest evil, in people who have no conscious or pride in their work.
I am SO... SO... SOOOO happy to have found this place. I have been starving for SWG since I quit. I even tried the trial post-nge hoping it was ... good. Well. It wasn't. It just wasn't. :<
Much love and appreciation to the devs of SWGEmu, and to anyone who donates and tests!! *Will be joining testing soon!* It's just incredibly exciting to see this coming together after so long...
You can bet I'll donate as soon as I can afford it. I'd rather pay $15 a month for this stuff! In fact, I'm more than willing too!! If only... I had money. evil, evil money. XD

It is not the same as your painting allegory.
Just want to say thanks to all working on this project, its good and nostalgic to see player cities again. I played swg for 6 years and was bummed to hear it close. Ive run into alot of old friends from the SOE version on liberator and Basilisk so in a way its like coming home again. Keep it up things are going great!
I have read in the forums about new planets that may/are being built that could possibly be added to SWGEmu, but did I read & understand the part of the interview correctly; that stated there were planets in the original SWG that were already in the code but were never used? What planets were these?
