    I'm extremely curious what your studying to see if you can push the engine even furthur. So that it can perform better on modern hardware to push the engine to rework the swg.exe. I'm honestly no where near there being any point in me looking into this. I've just started programming/modding but I would really like to know.

    So the wait is over? We should have the release soon? We really need this Oru anything we can do to motivate you out of your laziness to uncommit that line??

    I'm glad to hear that we may be finally seeing a release on this. That said, I'm not going to get too excited and get my hopes up quite yet.

    This excites me.

    I can understand the original concern and in many ways why after you decided that things change doing the uncomment and build have not happened. I need to do something similar on my launcher and release it.

    I agree with the others that I hope it happens quickly since we all know it will happen soon.

    While, there's a lot of things you can change using assembly it still remains pretty limited. Some things include allowing injection of a different shader system and lighting, but it would require a lot of debugging. It's not exactly stable but it can be done. Some of the easier things to accomplish are to increase the amount of RAM SWG uses (normally 512mb? I think). You can perform a sketchy hack that you can allow the engine to run more than 4GB ram in x64 programs, but again, it's not entirely stable. But if it were worked out properly, 4k textures and larger would be very possible.

    Again since the engine is pretty old, there are a lot of tweaks required which is what makes it a risky operation. The game wasn't designed to use much VRAM, so altering how the engine works without the source code will always cause some sort of problem.

    All things can be modified, but doesn't always provide the results you want.

    Naritus-reborn.com has been on hold awaiting this announcement! if this is done I would love to see official/ish servers listing like on live with different shards from the old live servers. be a neat way to give all our old home servers back and allow the devs here to keep or old precu community together and alive Emu sanctioned listings

    For those of you who don't know - this looks like TA removed the public limits.

    Rebuilt my server today with the new code - now I'm just waiting to hit the 2.5 hour mark.

    Sounds like you may be compiling with the old engine still. I can verify that the timer is gone, I'm at a little over 3.5 now.
