I think it rocked. And I'm ready with my lightsaber collection to strike back any flaming about the demo :D. :saberb::luke: :vadar::saberr: :saberr::maul::saberr:

(Okay, sorry about my persuasive attempts in the topic title ("how did you like this EXCELLENT demo?)). Won't do it again, it's probably confusing your minds as well as mine (now, aagh, what should I post? I wanted to say it rules but that would be giving in to the pressure) j/k:D

Sorry, you cannot do that in the demo. The slayers (EDIT: no, wait, its "slicers" :p) on the boards thought they could open a multiplayer game and let the AI control the other player, but no, AI players are disabled and you can't play without them :(. Only bad thing about the demo.

i enjoyed it, it looked great. The only problem i have with it is that the air units are HUGE.

The demo is nearly downloaded for me. I can't wait!

I got it!! Hmm, as I haven't had the chance to play multi yet, I can't say to much about teh whole demo. It was pretty cool so far tho. A few things tho:
1 I don't like the building flame effects. They don't really fit. AoK's flame effects were AWESOME.
2 At-St need some SERIOUS work done to them.
3 I don't believe I've ever seen Vader Jump up and down while slashing with a lightsaber in the movies:D
4 Sound could be a little better.

I just hope this was a test demo, and a more complete one comes out later.(But then i'd have to download it all over again:mad: )

need some tweaks....

A)Some death sequences need tweaking.......TIE fighters just disapear.......

2) The Woman reading the mission.....isn't exactly the evil that the empire represents :)

i noticed also that you can't make waypoints such as you could with your scouts in aok. you know that this is not complete, so hopefully better things come out of this in the near future....

I like the game ... I just don't like the demo.

- The one singleplayer mission isn't real fun.

- You can only play King of the Hill ... I don't like King of the Hill (gimme regicide)

just finished a good multiplayer game......nothing like a good win to give you a buzz :D

this game is going to rock!

Hello, I am new.

But I have reason to believe that the woman reading the missions is the "evil" the Empire requires. It's MARA JADE! Okay, maybe she isn't evil, and her voice isn't the greatest, but it is the ONLY person I know of that it could possibly. The Empire doesn't think too highly of women, and unless it is Admiral Dala (No possible way, she has been in the Maw since the construction of the first Death Star), I don't know of anyone else.

By any by, I think the game is sweet, and I am certainly buying it.

Only one complaint though, I can't see my mouse icon when going through the main menu. Any suggestions?:confused:

09-30-2001, 09:57 AM
first: Welcome to the board....darthfergie should be around to give you a gift basket soon ;)

Second: Who is Mara Jade?

You can't set waypoints? I could set waypoints just fine when playing mp..

Mara Jade is an EU person, now Luke's wife, but before was the Emporer's Hand. The Thrawn Series, and the Hand of Thrawn duology both have Mara Jade in them. Lots of others probably do, but those are the only two series Ive read

Oh, BTW, I finally got around to playing multi. It's great! There are still, of course, some tweaks that need to be made, but it is still very fun:D
(I have sinned@ I have posted a double post!;) )

The demo has worked. Now all of you really want the game. :D

Me included.

It's a great demo but I wish it had skirmish mode:(

Admiral Odin
09-30-2001, 04:48 PM

I don't recall it being named skirmish mode, but yes, it had MP capacity.
