View Full Version : End of Liberator Milestone reached

End of Liberator Milestone

May, 2012
The SWGEmu Staff


End of Liberator Milestone finally reached

Its been more than a month since we announced End Of Liberator Milestone, and today we are proud to announce that on the 13th of May 2012 Liberator will be taken offline one last time. It will be wiped and preparations for the launch of the new Alpha server will begin. Launch of the new Test-Play Alpha server is expected mid June.

What exactly does this mean?

It means that that we have less than two weeks left before we wipe Liberator and begin a month of stress testing on TC: Nova. During this month of stress testing there will be only one server online, TC: Nova.

After we wipe Liberator it is time for some seriously massive stress testing on TC: Nova. During that time we hope that all major stability issues, bugs and exploits will be found and fixed. Like we said before, this is a crucial period for the OR code and for this project as a whole, everything done so far will need to be tested during that time. To reduce the likelihood of future Alpha wipes, it is imperative that everyone does their best to help the Developers find and fix as many bugs, exploits and stability issues as possible. If major of issues are not discovered during the stress test then more wipes of the new Alpha server might be necessary.

How can we help?

The Development Team, will need YOUR help on TC: Nova to test the current OR code. Please logon to TC: Nova, pick a part of the game you are familiar with and start testing and submitting bug reports. Everything and anything implemented needs to be tested and retested. If you are not sure what you should do or you want to participate in a more coordinated and focused testing effort then please join our QA and Dev team in our IRC #openqa channel. If you are unsure where or how to submit a bug report, please check our "How to report bugs on Bug Tracker (Mantis) (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22463)" guide.

Month of stress testing is over, what then?

New Alpha play-test server will be launched. This will mark the beginning of SWGEmu Alpha Testing stage.

Please be aware that even after the new Alpha server is launched some major fixes and additions to the code may require database wipes. We will do our best to keep database wipes to a minimum, whenever possible we will try to save your character data. We will give advance notice of an upcoming DB wipe. Always keep in mind that this project is still in Alpha Testing and that even though we can clearly see the light at the end of the tunnel, we still have a long way to go before we are ready to release 1.0 to the public so permanent play servers can be created.

05-04-2012, 01:56 AM
OMG can't wait can't wait!

I can't say that I've contributed much to actually testing anything, but the little bit of time I've put into doing stuff on Nova has just made me more excited for the day when I can finally play without worrying about it all spontaneously poofing out of existence! =)

05-04-2012, 02:05 AM

pretty much sums it up there

05-04-2012, 02:14 AM

Nice work and congratulations guys!

Will the frogs still be used for testing purposes, and if so, what will remain on them? As a Scout / Ranger, hope the resource crates will be removed, but I suspect I'll get flak from crafters over that. Regardless, could more information be divulged on what will be available to assist everyone with stress-testing the servers?

Removing the frogs will be the major difference between TC:Nova and Alpha :)

05-04-2012, 04:11 AM
Sweeeeet, this sounds flipping awesome. Really awesome. I can't wait. Thank you for the update.

05-04-2012, 04:11 AM

05-04-2012, 06:24 AM
Very exciting news. It's kind of mixed emotions with the joy of being able to work hard for our characters, but the dread of losing all those sweet sweet options from that amazing blue beast thing that I don't believe resembles a frog at all.

05-04-2012, 06:34 AM
Ever foward kiddos. Ever forward. Lets get ready and get er done. Great news indeed. :)

Hail Xavia.

05-04-2012, 07:29 AM

05-04-2012, 07:29 AM
Very exciting news! *hibbelhibbelhibbel* (means: can't wait!) :D

I will try to use this interesting time, to recruit some more old veterans and test test test myself on Nova day in day out.
Thanks to the whole TEAM and hail Xavia <3 :)

05-04-2012, 07:32 AM

05-04-2012, 08:41 AM
I'm still puzzled as to why people don't seem to find cRush believable...

05-04-2012, 09:14 AM
This is the best news I have heard a while and one I been waiting for a while, plus i told some of my friends about this news and send the links too so they can see it with their own eyes :)

05-04-2012, 09:14 AM

Good work guys. This is getting very exciting.

05-04-2012, 02:38 PM
Day = Made.

05-04-2012, 02:57 PM
My hats off to all the hard work and dedication that the Dev team has contributed. This is absolutely wonderful news!

05-04-2012, 03:48 PM
Its been such a long road. The team has made great progress on the project.

05-04-2012, 03:58 PM
Big thanks to all of you - let's go to the final part!

05-04-2012, 05:03 PM
This is fantastic news! I tried not too get to excited by cRush's hint, but it's hard not to now. Amazing work, team! :D

05-04-2012, 05:15 PM
congrats and thank you. been looking forward to this for a while now. then we can get down to some no jedi game play!! LOL

05-04-2012, 05:28 PM
So excited! I've already told my 8 or so SWG friends that I kept in touch with about it. And I already have run into 2-3 of my old SWG buddies on Liberator already. I think once the 13th comes around we'll see a lot more people and definitely once the real server comes out we'll see a huge increase in population.

My one real concern is the release of the code to the public in the future. I'm hoping that even if people are able to make their own servers, that it won't take away too much from the population of the main one. The team worked so hard to bring this game back to us, I intend to play their version because of it.

Well, my day has just been made. Hell, I think this makes my year. Thank you and congradulations to the Devs for all their hard work.

Anyway, let's get to testing! The alpha test server needs to have as little bugs as possible so we can all enjoy the testing experience with as few wipes as neccessary.

05-04-2012, 05:56 PM
I can't really test much as I wasn't around pre cu and I don't know what working as intended is. But I'll be on the test server as much as possible just to add load to the server to test it that way. :-)

05-04-2012, 06:19 PM
my 'testing' today was having all of the geo caves to myself. Going to be crafting some interesting weapons when I get back to my house!

05-04-2012, 06:20 PM
This thread is full of win!!!

05-04-2012, 07:42 PM
I made that green text. That is my contribution.

05-05-2012, 03:53 AM

05-05-2012, 05:31 AM

For testing yes, for Alpha, no.

05-09-2012, 02:46 AM
Truly impressed guys, great job on reaching this milestone. I can't wait to truly play this game the original way it was intended and enjoy it as much as I did the day of it's initial release. Very, very, well done...

Will there be a EOL event on Sunday?

I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for what you guys are doing. A large portion of my time working in the game industry, revolved around SWG. I even met my wife thanks to it.

It's a piece of art, and deserves curation, just like any other. The news it was going down for good (despite NGE) was a pretty sad moment for me. I'd like to show my son one day where I met his mother. Thanks to you guys, I can.

Keep up the good fight, I look forward to submitting bugs on TC!

05-20-2012, 06:54 AM
You can submit bugs from Basilisk too :)
