June 11th wipe on June 11th


Stress testing on Basilisk is coming to an end, and we are rite on the schedule. The Basilisk server will be wiped on June 11th for the start of our play-test Alpha server. Server will be taken offline around 9AM EST (check your local time here (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=June+11th+Basilisk+wipe&iso=20120611T09&p1=179)) and replaced with the latest stable code. Because quite a few things need to be tested before Basilisk is open public again, whole process will take several hours.



Current Basilisk bugs and broken or missing professions

A lot of reported bugs are already fixed on Nova, and those fixes will transfer to Basilisk after the wipe. Professions such as Creature Handler, Droid Engineer, Bio Engineer, Commando, DOT weapons, creatures not dropping aggro, GCW will remain unavailable/broken for the time being, they will be added at the later date.



Bazaar revamp

PLEASE NOTE: Bazaar terminals and vendors are undergoing a revamp, and will be disabled for up to a week. You can still use manual trades or Basilisk Trade forums (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=196).



Jedi on Basilisk


Players wont be able to unlock Jedi before Village system too is added, tested on TC: Nova and deemed ready.


Hologrind will have no effect on obtaining Jedi on basilisk. Don't waste your time with it.

Follow the Village Jedi guides up to the point that you are waiting for the old man to appear. When Village gets implemented, he will appear.



Character limits

2 online, 10 characters max (deleted characters don't count), 1 created per day



Basilisk bugs and bug reports

Testing is still being done on TC NOVA, Basilisk will become a play server. If you encounter a bug on Basilisk, please try to reproduce it on NOVA. TC NOVA will often be fixed before Basilisk, and there may not be a need to create redundant bug reports. As an alternative you can contact Aceblade or Wuzze on IRC or by email aceblade@swgemu.com or wuzze@swgemu.com



Basilisk fixes and updates

All new updates will be tested on Nova first and after they are deemed stable they will be pushed on Basilisk, every weekend or Monday.

I thought they were saying there will be a hologrind and that Jedi will be attainable starting the 11th via the hologrind. Maybe I'm reading this wrong or just heard wrong previously.

I want you guys to know that we all appreciate the hard work you do to make this emulator possible. It is coming along great! Ive recently became a little more involved with the community and the community as a whole is a great community. Ive been ghosting this since 2006. I tip my hat to the people who work diligently to bring back what was the best MMORPG in my honest opinion. So lets all get out there and show our support, finding bugs and assisting the team in whatever way we can possibly do so.

Thanks you guys, you all kick total ***!

lol well said bluree, however I would like a bit of clarification on this subject.

1. It is said that Jedi will not be implemented until "the Village too is added" I take this to believe that both hologrind and village will be active at the same time, is that correct?

2. If answer to question 1 is correct, will players have to choose between hologrind and village, or will they have to do both?

3. Will players be credited for hologrinding from June 11th? or will it only be from when Jedi is implemented? (is it a waste of time hologrinding from Monday?)

4. If players have to do both the hologrind AND the village, will the exp requirement for village grinding be reduced? Because at 14.1 players needed to acquire approximately 120 million weapons exp, to trade in at 30 to 1 (along with combat exp at 3 to 1) in order to achieve the required force sensitive exp for the 6 FS lines for Jedi. If this is in addition to the hologrind, it will take the average HARDCORE, 20 hours per week player, about 2 years to unlock. That is constant Jedi grinding, it would be a deader server than liberator was at the end.

cRush

No, hologrind will have no effect on obtaining Jedi on basilisk. Don't waste your time with it.

Follow the Village Jedi guides up to the point that you are waiting for the old man to appear. When Village gets implemented, he will appear.

Will Test Center still be subject to rampant wipes?

Or will it also have a bit more staying power?

Also will it still be unrestricted as far as character creation goes?

06-09-2012, 06:09 PM
Ok, I don't think I see any links (and I probably won't go to the effort knowing it'll be wiped eventually) but just in case...

The post says "Follow the Village Jedi guides up to the point that you are waiting for the old man to appear. When Village gets implemented, he will appear."

From what I read (I grinded jedi before this in live) to get the old man to appear you need to get badges, which include theme parks. The theme parks are not currently in game, correct? So you can't get the old man to appear unless they've changed the pathway, which would mean the old village jedi guides are not correct.

As we have to test "patches" on Nova it may have a bit more staying power but a wipe can happen at any time. We haven't been wiped now for a decent amount of time already but if we are wiped the frogs are there to get you somewhat back up to speed.

No, it means that themeparks need to be added or you wont be able to unlock.

I don't want to go all negative here but I have to hope they have corrected the spawning issues a bit and the odd invasions of the cantinas should stop.

The professions are top priority I thought, I was under impression the CH and DE professions were actively being worked to get them online as soon as possible. It was posted the other day about the state of Droid Engineers as far as what was being fixed, a check list was posted that was extensive. So I know they are plugging along there.

Jedi is a dream to a lot of players but I wonder how many realize the WORK involved. This version of the game won't see Jedi until December even if the village is installed. And those Jedi will be hunted down and killed like rats.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, this game is NOT a race... it's a journey. Everyone just relax and enjoy the ride.

"

As excited as I am about what to expect on Monday I have to say that this creatures bug is still going to be a BIG issue for people. I am a little disappointed that it wasn't dealt with already. It is THE major bug in the game right now as it makes walking out to easy mission lairs almost impossible and usually ends up with a quick trip to the cloner, then spending time getting wounds healed, buffed back up again and then walking back out to those missions. This is a major game breaker at this point. It needs to be first priority.

I dont want to play a jedi to brandish a saber, I can do that in any of the 6 billion star wars games out there. I want to play Jedi because of the strategic play style involved, with regards to pvp bh's, lack of armour against high end creatures. This game has a lot of interesting challenges that I will enjoy and I want Jedi to be one of them, playing TOR has got nothing to do with being a Jedi. TOR is a single player game I can play with others, just because I have a lightsaber in my hand doesnt satisfy my desire to play as a pre-cu Jedi.

I want those other professions fixed also, but I will let the devs decide what they think is best to work on.

Professions such as Creature Handler, Droid Engineer, Bio Engineer, Commando, DOT weapons, creatures not dropping aggro, GCW will remain unavailable/broken for the time being, they will be added at the later date.



So I have two questions: 1) Will we expect the Alpha server to go up and down like it has been? While it's stayed up a few days in a row lately, it has been going up and down and reset quite often. The answer to this will then trigger my next question, which would be: Is the harvester hopper reset bug fixed? Checking Mantis, it still looks open to me. Is this one of the 'a lot of bugs fixed' or no? Because if not, there's no reason to waste time and credits on these things if they are going to be empty every day, unless the server is going to stay up for weeks without getting reset, then I won't worry about it. :)

SUMANE:

I think you you should READ before you critque things just a bit better.

I wrote " Jedi is a dream to a lot of players but I wonder how many realize the WORK involved. This version of the game won't see Jedi until December even if the village is installed. And those Jedi will be hunted down and killed like rats."

Meaning that even if the village was in TODAY, it take's MONTHS to complete the missions and achieve the required XP to get the JEDI title. And if you know this version of the game, the fledgling Jedi were weak and HUNTED for bounties so much so that it was more profitable to be a BH in many cases than to try to go any where as a Jedi for a good while.

If YOU read that any other way..... you misunderstood completely.

my mistake I thought you were talking about the implementation of Jedi.

having said that, the village phases lasted 3 weeks, a player needed to complete 6 phases in order to unlock the 6 FS branches. This would be done in 15 weeks or 3.5 months, so from when Jedi gets implemented it will be atleast 3.5 months until we see Jedi.

If its not now it will be down the road. Everything that is broken will eventually be fixed.

Could we get a confimration one way or the other on this though? I understand if not fixed because appreciate all the hard work everyone does on this project but just would like to know if it is or isn't fixed yet cause not worth placing harvesters at all if it's not.

thanks

You do know that the goal of this project is to create vanilla 14.1 Pre-CU emulator? Not half of an emulator or two thirds of an emulator, but a whole, working one.

To accomplish that everything that was working back then needs to work when we release 1.0, which means that everything that is missing or broken atm will be fixed or added at one point before we release 1.0.

You're missing my point....

I'm just asking as the last guy did. Is the harvester hopper bug fixed or will it empty on resets? I understand everything you said and just trying to get a confirmation one way or another before placing my harvs

edit - I guess cause my quote on my last post just had your response to him without his question, it was confusing so just clarifying I just wanted to know and that was all

No, hologrind will have no effect on obtaining Jedi on basilisk. Don't waste your time with it.

Follow the Village Jedi guides up to the point that you are waiting for the old man to appear. When Village gets implemented, he will appear.

I'm not a fan of Village, either, but
A) It was in at 14.1.
B) It will force the development of content that might otherwise not get done if Jedi is available.
C) Hologrind caters only to the group of players who spend maximum amount of time playing. Those who only get to play the weekends, or 5-10 hours a week, are severely handicapped by Hologrind. Village is kind of boring, but if it does one thing, it bridges the gap between hardcore and casual player. Necessary evil.

B)Ok
C)Please don't cater jedi to casuals. (May as well make it available at start-up, oh wait...) It makes going every other class pretty much redundant. Lets face it jedi are alpha no matter how you slice it, no unbugged ls resistance, the ability to heal all ham pools and heal mind without f'in themselves up, the list goes on...

No player hating here btw, but hot damn I want to play something cerebral and varied, rather than a mindless rave.

Perma death would be cool. Or a whole skill tree loss upon death. LOL.

Well, after we finish 1.0, then we can do whatever we want with Jedi. That's always been the stance. Got to get to 1.0 first - give other communities a base to start with. That base, unfortunately, includes hologrind and village both completed.

I still think even with all this discussion about Village vs Hologrind etc.

It is still a ways off to get to a VISION or the Village anyway!

Just enjoy the new launch and go whatever path you want to do. When you get ready to go to the Village, enjoy it or just don't go Jedi. THis is going to be fun Monday either way.

I'd also like to add that I'm against anything that makes this game easier. It's an MMO and you should have to invest the time in order to reap the rewards. Is it fair, probably not, but hey that's life.

Willing to bet majority of the people complaining about the unlock method thats getting implemented first on bas will have one. Like Dngrzne91 said, it won't be the same way after SC so why moan about it now on a play server that's going to get wiped anyway? Also once they get around to adding the FRS it will actually be people in it = moar pvp whether its jedi vs bh jedi vs jedi or jedi vs nonjedi. So sit back enjoy the view and watch everything unfold. I highly doubt it will be that hard to stomach this time around. :)

1 Character per day creation limit, 10 max, and 2 online... How can we get two toons online the first day, if we can only create one a day? :P

Not a big deal. I play while I'm at work, since I'm just an electronics babysitter.

this was the first think i noticed when i read the thread. i was afraid that i'd be the one to ask the question and catch flak for it. glad i'm not the only one who's first concern isn't that they won't be able to unlock jedi on the first night of the server. if it were still the old game we'd already be seeing the /ragequits and the stream of people saying they were taking their ball and bat and $15 a month and going home. :D

I have a question though. It says in the character limits: "2 online, 10 characters max (deleted characters don't count), 1 created per day"

I'm confused. So we can create a total of 10 characters? and we can have 2 online connected at the same time? How? So after 10 days we can actually have a total of 10? Yep I am totally confused....

Another question, if my brother lives with us (he is 21) can I recruit him to come to play swgemu since he played in starsider with us back in the days?. He would have to be using one of our computers or his
laptop whenever he plays. It's that ok? Of course, he will have his own account and his own characters
but both husband and I will share our pc with him. when one of us is not using it. Just wanted to
make sure its ok and does not violate any policies.

I keep recruiting people and my thread in my guild's forum (trga) is already like 2 page long. I have 4
more guildies (rl friends) that are going to be coming over and my brother too. Yay!!!! I cant wait. Love u guys for bringing this game back!!! :)

More questions and I apologize. After the wipe on June 11th (tomorrow), then alpha server will be up. This server will be wiped also or will this be the one that will remain for a long while?

You devs are doing such a wonderful job! I have nothing to criticize because only because of your idea and dedication is that we are able to play swgemu bringing us all back to swg pre-cu which otherwise would only exist in our good memories. Bugs or not bugs will exist in every single game and I see how much
effort has been put and continues to be put to make this experience as smoothly and enjoyable as
possible to all of us. Let us not be the whiners that brought down swg to its demise.

They said they would load changes on test server till proven then make weekly updates on Alpha server on weekends or Mondays. (It's in the first Page)

They will usually just do a reset of the server to implement and the launcher will grab the required files as needed.

•Character limits
2 online, 10 characters max (deleted characters don't count), 1 created per day

Im I the only one that thinks 10 characters is way to many. That many alts and people will have
every crafting prof mastered. No one will ever need to buy stuff from anyone else. I know its not the final/finished game,
but i hope that many slots dont make it to the finished game.

At this point, testing of features and code stability takes significant precedence over toon limits for economy/gameplay purposes. That is barely in the conversation at this stage. Refer to other threads that exist for that spirited debate. :)

To be honest, i couldnt give an a$$ rats about Jedi... I played a Jedi in other SW games (Dark Forces, Dark Forces II, Jedi Knight : Outcast, Jedi Knight : Jedi Academy etc...), and not even LOOKED at SWTOR out of protest for the removal of the SW Live game. With the introduction of the NGE I lost BOTH my primary professions, TK and CH, yet I still played as I am a Star Wars fan since '77. It will be so good (words just cant do it justice) to play my old toon again. Maybe catch up with old friends when they learn of the return of the old game, maybe even convert a few post NGE players.
You guy who made this all possible deserve a reward or something. Again, our thanks simply isnt enough. We were told by the powers that be at the time, that the changes were necessary, but as evidenced by the number of players playing now, and will be playing after the 11th, they didnt know jack s#!t about what players wanted... Reinforced by the enforced CU and NGE.
The full potential of this game was never fully realized, and I hope that you new developers have the vision OTHERS didnt have. I cant wait for Tuedsay morning (my time) when the server should be back up and I can get to grinding again. I have missed this game so much, like so many others. I hope there will be a way players/community members can come up with ideas that might be able to be implimented by the devs. The Live game had a good idea towards the end with the Chronicles addition, but even it was limmited in ways.
Again, cant wait and thanks again.

I do agree that 10 is a bit excessive, although you have to think during the live game many people had multiple accounts (I had 3.. yeah bit sad when I think about it!)

but since multiple accounts are not allowed here it is nice that we are allowed quite a few chars

I don't think we need to worry about people leveling all the crafting professions cos I for one can't be bothered to master even 1 crafting profession let alone several! lol

No. A program "push" is an update that can be installed like a patch, and usually requires a restart to implement...not a wipe.

Woot! Can't wait to log in. On a side note why have the limit on characters logged in? Couldn't people just create more than one account? I am anxious to see how this can be limited, because if anyone can have unlimited characters it would definitely take away from the experience.

You aren't allowed multiple accounts it's against the rules and the devs have ways of finding out.
As for the two character limit I assume it's to try and balance the economy rather then having one guy with 30 different surveying bots at one time.

ok awesome. I am all for the two character limit, what I meant was that it seemed unnecessary unless accounts could be limited. Looks good to me!

Leave Tat, problem solved.

/agree Tat is rough at the moment for low lvl mobs surrounded by higher lvl/agrro's, Cnet was pretty easy to work i thought right through master Brawler.

That brings back wonderful memories. My Jedi trainer was the Brawler just as you exited the CNet starport. Was always a scary thrill to train and talk about skills in the middle of everyone.

This is exactly what I was talking about, but if things work better on Corelia then that's cool too. Not sure if I appreciated all the sarcasm in a couple of earlier posts. A friendly helpful tip works much better people and helps create a nicer atmosphere.
That is all :-)

just what happens when a million people are trying to get on?

Neither me nor my friend can get past this once we choose a starting location (Mos Eisley) Should I just wait, or do we think there is a bigger issue?

Just wait it out on the loading screen. The server is experiencing some major lag at the moment, most likely it will die down in a few hours.

About 2 hours after it went up - it was taken down and then went up again.

When it went up again, there were over 1100 people logging on together, lol.... what a turnout.

We are in Alpha phase of development. Crashes, tweaks that need server restart and updates are bound to happen. If the server is down it's for reason, not just for fun.

Both servers are test servers so you will have to get used to it. Also, these Devs work on this game in there FREE time so dont expect any quick fixes seeing as they do not get paid for developing this EMU.

When i hunt wildlife i can only be on for fifteen minutes before being disconnected for thirty minutes.

Should I....
A) Lower my graphics on the options menu?
B)Cut out every program running other than SWG?
C)Get a better internet Connection?
D)Or...does this happen to everyone?

Btw seriously, thanks for bringing back the greatest MMO in the history of gaming, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!!!!

Long time reader, first time posting. I have played swg since launch and remember when they killed it with the NGE officially, so sad. I also remember when emu was only anchorhead and this post is just to say a huge thanks to all the Devs,staff, and everyone else that has worked on it. Keep up the great work! There will always be a negative in the crowd, but from reading this you have made alot of people happy bringing this back, i know i am! My best goes out to Xavia, and again thank you to all that help this project along, long live SWGemu.

As an "old guy" that lived through the game debut, I figured I might add some perspective...

When the servers first deployed and we laid our fifty bucks down for the game, Sony launched with about 60% of the game functional, the servers not at all, and we chewed fingernails all day at work hoping that the game would be up for seventeen minutes so we could actually visit Obi Wan's house ...

... and with all the work performed on the "free" product, by our talented and most gracious devs - they debuted a game with 75% functionality and we can log on for an hour or more before being booted.

Sure, we'd all prefer gleaming new servers and unlimited bandwidth - all of which are more stable than the Rock of Gibralter, but that ain't in the cards ...

So, I'll chew fingernails at work - forever grateful that some poor SOB is donating his free time so I can pump a laser beam up an iKopi's backside - knowing that in my best days I couldn't code a cheerio.

Yes I want to play the game. Yes, I want to show an iKopi which end of the laser is hot. But I'm a patient SOB - and will gratefully gnaw fingernail knowing you're looking out for me.

I work all day and come home to relax, you work all day and come home to work more...

Thank you.

It should be implemented during alpha phase, nobody can give you accurate ETA though since we don't know when it is ready for testing.

1st post for me too! I just wanted to tell you the server was almost flawless for quite a while before being brought down. I'm really fortunate just to be reliving the memories and I hope for more updates in the future!

Looks like word is getting around that the EMU is running better and better every time there is an update. I too am so excited to get to play... just a quick heads up to the new players... DON'T create a character and turn around and delete it. You can only make ONE every 24 hours!! So now that I have finally got the game installed and ready to go, I made that mistake and now have to wait on my days off for another 24 hours to get to play!! It's coded into the server that way... no way around it. Be careful when you delete!

Couldn't have been said better. Thanks for reminding us all how much it sucked when the game was first devoloped, and how much work these devs have done, knowing this isn't thier job. I'm not going to say if you can't be patient leave the game, because that hurts what the devs are doing this EMU for, but instead i'll go with an old saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." They are strictly asking us to point out certain bugs and such, so lets stick to what we can do for them, so you can continue to work on this game as thier time allows.

You aren't kidding. I paid full price at launch and had to wait for three days before I could get through the lag on the account servers. I can also say that it wasn't much more stable than the EMU is currently-although it would make professions a bit easier if the vendor/bazaar system worked. LOL

I've been playing on the emulator here at SWGemu for years on and off whenever I can. Had to take a long hiatus due to work but came back and and very excited seeing everything that's been happening and the progress that's been made. Got my discs ready and installing it again as we speak can't wait to get back in game and start the journey along with everyone else. Kudos to the SWGemu team for all they've done and will continue to do. Kudos to all the players who are here to enjoy a long forgotten experience.

How is the test server set up? Can I master a profession right away? Or start with a bunch of credits? Or do I have to start from scratch? Re-creating a bug to test on NOVA may prove to be a real pin in the what what, if you catch my drift... Which means if a bug is found on Basilisk players are going to have issues testing it on the TS before reporting the bugs. Good thing for this recent patch though, everything's kinda fresh for testing even on Basilisk.
