Hmmm lets say wel
How Many CApitol can we Expect on the Space flght maps?
Will the CApitol hips be destroyable?
Whats r the Minimum System Requirements?
What r the officers Capabilities?
How many Geonosis maps will there be?
Why did the gunships in the trailer Shoot Laser BOLTS from the Spheres at the side its supposed to be LASER BEAMS.
how many space flight maps will there be?

First Pad, thanks for the assistance you provide to us... ;)
Next, I've made a small list of questions I consider important :

How many units will there be per faction ?
How many weapons will each unit have ?
Will heroes be still invincible ?
Will there be subtitled or translated movies in SWBF II ?
Will some of the SWBF I original maps be restored in SWBF II ? (Endor, Geonosis, Kamino, Theed and all others)

That's all for the moment... If you could send those questions to Pandemic Studios, it would be nice...

Thanks in advance !... :)

I too would like to know why the gunship shot laser bolts in the trailer. It makes it look weird.

- Will there be more maps included then how many there were with SWBF I?
- We've been hearing alot about the starfighters and aircraft of the game. And we've some new clone wars vehicles, but, will the Empire and Rebellion get any new ground vehicles?

Personally, I think that Republic gunship's spheres can use both laser bolts and beams, like the Spider Droid...
Whats r the Minimum System Requirements?
They are the same as for SWBF. You can consult them here (http://www.swbattlefront.net/index.php?action=game&catid=1&page=sysreq) or there (http://support.lucasarts.com/tsg/SWBFQuestions/Installation/MinimumSystemReqs.htm).

The problem being that the Spider has two different cannons. (one for laser bolts, the other for the beam) The Gunship sphere turrets only have one.

Leviathan

Nevertheless, I think that several effects can be affected to only one cannon...

did u EVER c the gunships fire laser bolts in the movies NO.
So here u go it should fire BEAMS another stupid mistake in battlefront 2.
Another Question; WILL THE SOUNDS FOR THE ATST BE FIXED AND WILL THE WHEELS FOR THE HAILFIREDROID FIANLY ROTATE FORWARD INSTEAD OF BACKWARDS!?

Leviathan
07-15-2005, 11:30 AM
maxloef, I've not seen laser bolts in Star Wars prelogy, but that does not mean that they do not exist !
Regarding AT-ST's sounds, I've not read somewhere that there were problems with them...

BeBop
07-15-2005, 06:23 PM
Well the AT-ST doesn't sound like it does in the movies. It's sound was closer to the AT-AT's firing sound but more high pitched. As for the Hailfire droid wheels, I don't think they should change that, I'm pretty sure that's an effect of moving quickly. Wheels sometimes appear to be moving backwards in real life too if they are going fast enough.

Leviathan
07-16-2005, 09:58 AM
I see what you mean, now... But such effects for Hailfire's wheels won't be easy to create and apply... And regarding AT-ST's sounds, you're right again... But I don't think Pandemic will change them for others...

Leviathan
08-14-2005, 12:14 PM
Excuse me, I thought you were still speaking of SWBF's installation problem under Windows 2003... As for me, the reply isn't positive, because this OS is not really made to allow games to be installed ; After all, it is a professional Windows version, and we're not at work to play video games...

-Will there be melee attacks ?
Yes, when you'll play as a Jedi / Sith. Moreover, it exists a trailer of SWBF II showing a short duel between General Grievous and Master Kenobi...

-Will there be mod tools
I doubt there will be modding tools for this video game ; Nevertheless, it is a possibility...

Yea, I guess you are right, the Os isn't meant for gaming. Being a Software Engineering major at my college, I get all of Microsoft's products (except Office) free, so I updated to Win2k3. It has some advantages over XP and 2000 that I wanted. I just wasn't happy when I had to wipe out my hard drive and install Win2k to just to play SWBF. I guess I did it to my self:disaprove...

Anyway, it seems to me that SWBF and SWBF2 are pretty much the same game with a few tweeks to the characters and other small changes. I am wondering if SWBF2 can play any correctly made/modded map from SWBF. There doesn't seem to be any functionally changes to the maps. Also, I would like to know if there is a release date out there yet, for the demo.

I don't think you'll find Jango... On the other hand, his son, Boba, has more chances to be in SWBF II...
2. who or what is the droid commander unit? (please let it be crab droid, i could settle for a magnaguard, yellow painted battle droid sucks)

It is surely a Standard Battle Droid... (Also known as "Tactical Droid")
3. is the juggernaut in the game?

I've never seen the Clone Turbo Tank in Kashyyyk's trailer ; But that does not mean it won't be in SWBF II... (Nevertheless, do not forget it is a huge vehicle ; Consequently, it could be not included in SWBF's sequel because of its power.

All what it really has is some laser turrents that aren't as powerful as an AT-AT's, and missiles. If they balance it correctly, the Juggernaut should have about the same amount of armor as the AT-TE's, and it would take something like two 'slug' tanks to take one out in a head-on assault.

As for questions,

-Will each of the sides recieve a new unique unit?
-How will the 'Hunt' mode work exactly?

Turbo tanks are only vulnerable from above, a well placed artillery barrage or an airborne strike is about all that can defeat it.

Darth Andrew
08-22-2005, 11:07 AM
True, but then again, the AT-AT could only be defeated by a snowspeeder's tow cable. But the developers made it that a tow cable, while it being the most effective way of taking a walker out, could also be destroyed by consentrated amounts of turrent fire and missiles. The same will probably go for the Juggernaut; taken out more easily by air strikes, but missiles and lasers will also do.

You'll be able to play as Jedi / Sith for a restricted time... Moreover, if you're hurted by enemies, you will waste even more time...
What are the PC specs?
As far as I know, SWBF II's requirements will be the same as SWBF's ones. Just go at this address to read them : http://support.lucasarts.com/tsg/SWBFQuestions/Installation/MinimumSystemReqs.htm
If I can run BF1 can I run BF2?
Theoretically, yes, you can...
What is the point of the DVD version?
A DVD has a storage capacity of 4.7 GB and a CD can store about 650 ~ 700 MB of datas... Consequently, a DVD can replace 6 ~ 7 CDs...
Thus, you can burn more datas on a DVD, and it will occupy a minimum of place in SWBF II box... ;)

4) Put your DVD in
5) Reboot the computer and enjoy.

Bindy. That is not an answer. Jet troopers wern't invented for this game. They apear alot in EU.

Jango is infact in the game.

What is this crap about AT-AT only being killable through only speeder? The rebals only had lasers then. Blaster can't penatrate the AT-AT but both the Rocket troopers and many ships carry Proton torpedos(anti-cap. ship). AT-ATs are very well armored but they could be broken same for the Juggernaut.

Well, "most likely" is certanily true. Sometimes I had to aim just a bit higher then the unit's head to get a head shot. Other times, your shot hits the unit in the head but no damage occurs. (proven both ways: I've seen a sniper bullet directly hit my unit's head, while its health stayed uncahnged... Maybe a lag/programming problem with physics and hits calculated being before player locations and graphics are drawn are drawned? i.e. moving into graphics of bullet after physical bullet has already passed)

I don't know what you seem to be worried about my internet works fine for everything all the time.
i'll probably get it in 10 or 11 days as i've preordered it and live in the UK so i'm totally fine with the amount of time.

I would like to ask: Is the beta going to be shut down after SWBF2 comes out? I don't have the money to buy it right when it comes out, but I would still like to play it online.

Yea, I known you can always make a LAN server and play on that, but LA could shut down all public online servers and auto-update a feature that breaks the Beta.

They'll probably just leave the beta alone.
By making it no longer downloadable they won't lose money after the full versions release.

The major things I really want to know if the attack on both death stars will be included; like will the trench run will be included like at "The Battle of Yavin" and attack inside the second death star at the "Battle of Endor".

Also
Do the star ships move or they just sit their like they are at dry docks.
Do the space terrain like, planets, astroroids, & etc look realisted (meaning having realisted physical motion) or just pasted lazy background.
Also are there real time enviromental effects on plantes and moons.


Friends you will all see my dissatisfied rage :ball: :firemad: :duel: if the major requirements like death star 1 & 2 two aren't met, posted in the release week of the "anticipated great game".

I also anticipate others (true star wars fans) will post their dissatisfied thoughs.

You're use of colour annoys me.

What message? You're just being an idiot, telling everyone what you want in the game, with your stupid colourful posts and caps lock. Your first post didn't make much sense, it would help to actually read your message before posting it.

Seems you've been spending an awful lot of time simply bashing other people for posting lately. Perhaps you should just lighten up and take a rest? Just because you feel these issues are irrelevant or silly, doesn't mean others do. Disagree without feeling the need to bash, I say.

Honestly, what are you accomplishing in this other than trying to upset people? Is the game's inevitable release in 11 days that depressing?

Sheesh...

Do tie interceptors have missiles? Cause I've seen in trailers for the game shown to me by friends that tie fighters have them and I think it's pretty obvious that tie bombers would.

A list of questions!

Will there be model/ level export tools for 3ds max?

Lots of soft image mentioned, whats the model file format, and can it be exported in games file format without soft image.

************************

How much mod support will there be.

Looking at the last games info, there was much reference to a kind of here are the tools and adios mentality. Will lucas arts or pandemic provide tutorials or guides for modding. www.doomlab.com is doing a great job for battlefield 2, and Dice/ea have been releasing video tutorials.

***********************
How comprehensive will the modding tools be.

In other words, is creating a total conversion mod for this thing total fantasy.

*****************************

Will the game support a variety of character skeletons.

Will different races have different base character skeletons. Will differrent units have different infantry skeletons ( i doubt this for bandwidth reasons but hey i gota ask.)

*******************

Will modders be able to change camera positions.

I ask this cos i understand the fundamental reason there might not be cockpit views. For each cockpit view to be done in detail you need to have a seperate model for the cockpit. Thats a lot of vehicles for a start, the interiors of which have never been concepted. It also adds a mass of modelling work for the dev team, not to mention any increase in in bandwidth for online play required. If the texture maps can do transparancy (and it will be a bad job if they cant... ) then 1 model can be used for both interior and exterior in say fighters. The exterior models windows can be opaque, but cos the polygon is one sided, the pilot can see out from the inside. As long as the pilot cant look around, the cockpit controls etc can be replaced with an image of a highly detailed cockpit model. its better than no cockpit view at all in my opinion. Push to shove and you cant select different camera views at all, then you just choose for each vehicle what you want, cockpit view or external.

********************

Oh and to all the people weeping in agony over the most trivial stuff imaginable.. e.g. oh no!! a laser bolt instead of a beam!!!

Guys, your lucky your being handed the game in the condition its in. When battlefield2 came out, everyone knew there would be stuff that would be there for gameplay reasons that needed changing. Hand grenades able to damage tanks, sniper rifles not a one hit kill etc. It was called vanilla bf2, and in short order it was modded out. If all you have to worry about is the odd sound effect or laser bolt.... just be more respectful and thankful for what your getting.

If you are very good at playing as him....yes...but if you get bombarded by laser fire and any weapon for that matter, say good bye to your friend, Darth Vader.

It is your secondary fire button (normally right click). The force choke is the secondary's (lightsaber throw) secondary weapon.
