View Full Version : Max in SWGB?

01-20-2004, 09:34 PM
I was told that Max (of Sam and Max (http://www.samandmax.net)) could be found somewhere in the scenery (like, I guess there are a bunch of trees formed in his shape somewhere, or something) in Galactic Battlegrounds. I don't own the game, though, and was wondering if anyone could confirm this and post a screenshot? For those who are unaware, Max makes cameo appearances in a lot of LucasArts games. Here's a visual:

If you've seen him, please post up a screen! I'd be very grateful.

Here are a couple:


Max on the automap in Dark Forces.


Max again in JK1, this time as wall decoration.


Max in Jedi Knight 1 as a very deranged NPC.

He also appears in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade adventure game, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, all four Monkey Island games, Day of the Tentacle, Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, Afterlife, and a decent amount of other classic LucasArts games. He surely appears in XWing, Tie Fighter, etc etc as well, and is rumored to be on an asteroid in Rebel Assault 2 though nobody has put a screenshot of it up before.

So, is he in GB?

hmm.... I'll have a look if I ever have nothing to do, but frankly... it could take a while. There are countless maps to look at, tons of campaigns, ect.

In Shadows of the Empire level 6 (the one where you use a swoop bike in Mos Eisley and Beggar's Canyon) there's a Challenge point that is Max's face rather than the Alliance's logo.

I haven't seen him in SWGB though.

Go check at http://www.eeggs.com
If it isn't there, I don't think it's in SWGB. I highly doubt it.
There is however the LA logo on one of the maps.

It's not on eeggs, I checked. I actually submitted most of the Max sightings there back in like 1998-99. :p

Wow ok. LOL. I'll check it out this weekend. If I see something, I'll post it :D

Well, my searches turned up nothing, I did some random seed map searches (and 1138 :p), and searched random campaign missions. Maybe luke will turn up with something...

Sorry me neither I didn't find anything. I checked all the campaign maps and none of them had anything that looks like Max.

Alright, thanks anyway. Perhaps Eets is a lying liar.

I believe there is a Max face in the terrain maps in the corner if you reveal a whole map on one of the levels (for the empire maybe?) I can't remember...been a long time...but yeah...I've seen it.

Yes, Max is indeed in SWGB.

Like darthfergie said, the trees in one of the maps make his face, though I don't remember which scenario it is. Use the forceexplore and forcesight stuff and you'll find it by checking the minimap.

I think it was the LucasArts logo...
