Does anyone have any info on what the Auto Turrets are that the sniper class carry? Is it some type of mini turret that can guard your back or defend a location while you move to new ground?

It's a small floating droid that looks like a grey interrogation droid from the DS. It fires when people go near it, and is as scary as a crouching Greivous.

Awsome! I can't wait to try that out on Hoth. The number of cool things that come to mind are just plain awsome. There have been so many cases were I've found a great sniping location just to get killed by a single pilot that has found me in a not so great position to defend myself.

One would imagine that the aut turret isn't meant to kill other people, so much as it's meant to give you warning that someone approaches.

I wouldn't say it is crap... just another tool.

What you really need is 3 snipers at the same place to drop their turrets together, I am sure a couple of these together will be alot more effective.

I talked a bunch of guys into buying the first one at or LAN party and then it bombed horribly with them! I felt like an idiot. We went back to Battlefield 1942 and Unreal Tournament 2004. Two main reasons it bombed, the maps where to small especially for the space fighters and some people just didn't like the way the graphics looked. We loved playing Jedi Knight Outcast in its day but just couldn't get into Battlefront.

Better is pretty subjective. Personally I am having a blast playing this online... the space battles are amazing.
Will your friends like it more than the first SWBF? Well that is hard to answer... but I would bet money they will like it more than the first one. I would recomend getting this one, trying it out yourself... and then see if you will recomend it.

Well I'll be objective and say that from the reviews I've read, the game's pretty much the same as the first one except there's more content added plus there's a coherent single player campaign. I read that some maps, such as Rhen Var and Tatooine were taken out completely and the game's pretty much about the space battles and the Jedi, though IGN points out that the Jedi are kind of twitchy and the overall game is more arcade like (quake) as opposed to sim like (battlefield). Once I have the game, I'll put a non-hype review up.

Hi, I want to buy this game as I had a blast playing the last game online. But I wanted a definite answer to the question in the title.

So, can you crouch or prone in the game? It would annoy the hell out of me if I couldn't. Especially if I was a sniper, I would be a sitting duck if I was standing and sniping.

I remember reading somewhere that you can crouch but not prone, but I have also heard that if you press and hold the crouch key you prone. So I am a bit confused.

Also does this game have widescreen support?

Thanks

You can still snipe, even if you're not prone. I agree that I wish being prone were still in the game, but that seems like an odd reason to not get the game. The rest of the game seems to be pretty fun to me.

Each ship is like a standard vehicle (only with no wheels). You can steal enemy ships. To do so, you must land in the enemies fighter bay, wait for a ship to respawn (not long) and jump in. You now control that ship.

Izzybaz
11-03-2005, 09:38 PM
I'm not sure you can steal a BIG ship, like a Star Destroyer. You can enter them and run around, kill more people, steal a small fighter and leave. I haven't tried to steal a Star Destroyer though.

Jennaida

If you press and hold the crouch key, you get down onto one knee for a lower crouch. No prone. Which doesn't bother me in the least, since I've never gone prone deliberately in the original.

Commander Obi-Wan
11-04-2005, 12:04 AM
You can't steal a Star Destroyer. :vsd:

jaemz
11-04-2005, 12:09 AM
The space battles are what really make this game awesome in my books. Each side (usually) has a star destroyer (type ship) and a friggot style ship. The SD has the spawn point, starfighter bay, turret command room and sometimes a destroyable warp core. The friggots are destroyable (I think, but they don't seem to do much).

From the launch bay, if you hop into one of the many types of star fighters, or troop transports... you lift off and fly out of the bay and into space. Prepare to dogfight, avoid turret fire, fly around obsticles and shoot anything that moves.

I could go on for hours about the space battles, but I would rather play them. Hope that helps, see you online.

not at all, you have to get to 180 points to win, when you kill off the engine it gies you 40 points i think (major compont) the other small ocuncils give you 1, the turrents give you 1, the starfighetsr give you 1, bomber 2, trooper trans 5 and such, you can destroy all systems in the other guy's ship and not win!!!! you have to get to 180 point!!!!

...The friggots are destroyable (I think, but they don't seem to do much)...
Friggots give you about 14 or 19 points for blowing them up. In the beta, they are sort of off to the side and don't do much, but in the other space maps, they are between the two main ships and their turrets will pick your fleet to pieces unless you take tem out. So far, I've seen a max of 3 Friggots per team on a few space maps (the beta just has 1 per team).

What's your problem? I don't play as a sniper all the time. I hardly ever do. It's just I don't want to be restricted in my movements at all.

I have to say, that when they still had orbital strikes in the game, I'd often go find me an out-of-the-way gonk droid and just hunker down, prone, so as to draw as little attention to myself as possible, and just oribital bomard the heck out of everyone. I have to say, that was a LOT of fun. I'm sort of sad to see that both oribital bombardment and laying prone are gone from SWBF2, but I still think the game is pretty fun so far.

richo
11-04-2005, 09:33 AM
I still might buy it Vagabond as so many people who played the first one liked the second. It's just with FPS games, when your attacking the command posts it's nice to be able to prone, ie, make yourself a smaller target.

I loved the first game regardless of its problems, and do miss the multiplayer action. Thats it, I'm off to special reserve to get my copy.

By the way, is there a large number of online players yet?

Some *objectives* are timed in the campaign. Such as protecting area X for Y seconds, or recovering X in Y seconds. Entire battles are not timed. (This is for the PC, but I think it should be the same for the X-BOX).

I'm not sure I understand what you mean with Dark Side. Playable Sith are only to the Impire and CIS.

My friend, commanderobiwan, told me that Hoth is timed for 21 minutes. If you go past that time, it is considered a defeat (this is for PS2...and probably all versions).
Also, you have to complete some objectives in a certain time limit. This also is what my friend, commanderobiwan, told me. Since I have yet to play the game.

I agree. Especially on Kashyyyk, as a clone sniper, I'd run to the end of the platforms and go prone next to the ammo droid, and bomb the snot out of the AATs and spider walkers on the island.
But these maps are way more complex and the recon droid would would probably run out of fuel before getting to its target. Plus I'll admit going prone got me killed (or got me kills from enemies who did) all too often.

I suck. I've beaten the entire SWBF2 game (501st campain and the 4 galaxy conquests) on Elite and I became a worst player. After you have been playing for a while, you start to keep bonuses such as damage given increase and damage taken reduction. I've been playing with those given to me each time I spawn for so long, I've gotten too used to them. I want a way to turn those bonuses off. I don't want to make a new profile becasue I want to keep track of my stats, but I no longer want to start with the 3 (soon to be 4) permanent bonuses I've earned. The bonuses are there to help good players, in the short run they do, but in the long run they only hurt you.

In the first patch, make a setting so the user can turn those off.

You get a technician award by slicing into an enemy vehicle. To slice into a vehicle, use the reapiring 'weapon' on the vehicle. A green % will show up display how much of a % you have completed. When it reaches 100%, the enemy units inside the vehicle will pop out. The vehicle is locked for a second, then you can jump in. You don't need to get into the vehicle to get the award. If you do get in the vehicle, you get a nautomatic vehicle health regeneration for that vehicle.

Note: The enemy units stay alive when they pop out, so watch your back.

Can anyone think of a good map for this? It needs to have a defendable location where I can order all my troops to stay behind behind.

I just though of one: The Jedi Temple. Right before the bookcases, there are very few enemies spawning and no Jedi around. I should be able to stay alive even if my troops can't.

To be exact, when you choose instant action, you can choose what 'variant' of a level you want, such as Capture the flag (one or two flags) and the GC rules. Choose GC rules and you play 'classical' battlefront. As a point, you still need to earn the officer and 'uber' unit though.

OK, now it all makes sense....I first thought slicing would do damage, like if you sliced long enough it would destroy the vehicle. Plus I think the slicing has to be continuous, if it stops at any point I believe you have to start all over again. AND, it explains why I got to 100% once only to keep hitting 'E', wondering why I can't get in, then finally being "mysteriously" killed...(by the units that had popped out, not knowing they were there.)

The prone ability may have helped some people, but for me it felt like you were play acting being a soldier... crawling through the grass on your belly, it was just cool, even if it never happened in the Star Wars movies that I remember... (then again, half of the stuff in this game never happened in the movies, so no problem there!).

Without orbital bombardment, you can use them under ground or inside the ships.

I used prone. Sometime when I'm very low on health and in enemy areas, I go prone. Some people just don't look down. I have slowly crawled along the walls, very close to enemy humans (bots will just kill you), for long distances to reach a health droid. Why people didn't shoot me I'm not sure, but they didn't.

So this is not an Official Forum Board.

Who is Kurgan.

Do you guy's think the Lucas Arts people see what we write on the Forum Board or maybe one of the Lucas Arts people are a Member here.

He's me. ;) I'm not the only admin, but I'm one of the more talkative ones, so I hear...

Yes, the LucasArts people do visit here, and they have accounts here. The thing is though, they work hard for their company and don't have time to answer all our posts (even if they were allowed to by their superiors) so they rarely post and just lurk.

The exception was when JK2 and JA each were coming out and the first few months, several of the developers talked at length, gave feedback and tips and listened to suggetions for the patches.

And yes, people need not assume that they take every post here seriously and it makes a difference, but then we shouldn't assume that they have no idea these posts exist either. Chances are they've read a good chunk of what goes on, even if they don't do anything about it. We're not the only community around after all... Raven and LucasArts (and I'm sure Pandemic and all these other companies) have their own forums to attend to. But they know this community exists and we have a good relationship with them. They don't tell us everything, but they throw us a bone now and then. ;)

And it's true, none of the moderators, super moderators or admins here are LucasArts or LucasFilm employees. This is strictly a fan forum based on a fan network (a Lucas Fan Network, if you will). ;) We may have more connections with the companies and people than the average fan site, but we're still nowhere near official.

Safe Mode in games is typically for testing. Like let's say the game keeps crashing on you and you don't know why. Safe Mode is to try to see if you can run the game with minimal settings (no flashy graphics, low res, etc). It's to troubleshoot technical problems on your end. The non-safe mode is how you normally run the game, with all your custom graphics and sound settings, etc.


02. What is Vsync.


Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vsync) should always be taken with a grain of salt, but this sounds about right:

Vertical synchronization (abbreviated as vertical sync or V-sync) is a method used in computer games to only allow the game to draw to the screen starting at the beginning of a video scan. This limits the frame rate of the game to the monitor's refresh frequency and also prevents page tearing.

V-sync is often found in applications where frames forming a motion sequence are rendered in real time at a variable rate, including 2D/3D games and audio/data visualizations, but does not apply to video playback.


03. What is Anti Allasing

Aliasing (sp?) is the effect of pixelation ("blockiness") at the edges of sprites or polygons, that gives something a digitized look, and thus less realistic. Anti-Aliasing is a feature built into many video cards, and some games themselves that "smoothes out" or smears (depending on how its calculated) these pixels in order to make it look less pixelated. Usually it requires at least a minimal amount of extra memory to accomplish this, hence why it used to be that only high level video cards or people with lots of ram were capable of benefiting from it. Now it seems to be more commonly used.

Some people prefer to the speed boost (though its probably minimal for modern systems) of not using AA, and some people dislike the "fuzziness" or "smearing" that sometimes accompanies it. It's a personal preference. Many consider it to be "prettier" than seeing pixels.


04. What is Bass Management.


Just like what it sounds like. Bass is the "boom" (opposite of treble.. it's the low sounds, vs. the high sounds of treble). Bass that's too high or too low can ruin the sound experience for many people. Either stuff sounds too "shallow" (too low) or too reverberating (too high). Bass Management is (supposed) to make sure that the bass sounds right. It's a personal prefernce and I don't know how well it works in this game.


05. How do i see my PM.


Go to the top of your screen where it says "private messages" (if you're logged in, it should show your name and a number next to it). Click on that and view your private messages, send them, etc. Or you can go to the "User CP" (User Control Panel) and access them from there. They're at the top of the screen with your options on the forum.

06. How do i make a Spoiler Tag.

[ spoiler ] Your spoiler goes here [ / spoiler ] (remove spaces to get the tags to work, like so:)

SPOILED!

Good luck!

Does anyone have any info on what the Auto Turrets are that the sniper class carry? Is it some type of mini turret that can guard your back or defend a location while you move to new ground?

Yes thats correct...
Say while you travel u can leave a turrent at ur command post to defend it... it works really well.

zerted
12-19-2005, 11:28 AM
Sniper Auto-Turrets:
The sniper can only place one at a time. It stays where its place and starts shooting at nearby enemies. Be carful, it doesn't care if you or another friendly unit is standing between it and the enemy, it will fire anyway. It also blows up when attacked by enemies, after a time period, or after a certain amount of shots. You can also jump on top of them If you place one down, the AI will always throw a gernade at it.

zerted
12-21-2005, 02:19 PM
I think they will be giving PC users a better patch. It will fix many bugs people are having. The Xbox users all have the same hardware, so there is less test/fix on those systems and they can produce it faster. PC have a wide range of hardware and thus have a wider range of problems. We should also be getting modding tools with the release of the patch. I am willing to wait for a better patch and an unfaulty map editor/mod tool.

as for the hangar on hoth, its good to have war hero and guardian unlocked, and maybe frenzy. go as an ordinary blaster grunt/soldier, plant the tracker and then move a few meters away from the trench. If you play with FF off, then you can go lob grenades down the trench to sort out any flimsy attempts byt the rebels to destroy it, and then fire in a few blaster lasers for luck. if you die, just run back and repeat. If it's health is low, just switch to an engineer and use the fusion cutter to heal.

How do you take screenshots? I've been trying to figure this out forever.

Throckmorton
04-19-2006, 10:05 PM
One Answer - To take screenshots, I use a program called Hypersnap. There are other programs such as SnagIt and Captura as well. I like Hypersnap for various reasons, but mostly because it automatically saves any screencapture as an uncompressed JPG file, and then increments any subsequent screen captures you take. That means that you can keep hitting the "printscreen" key as often as you like, and Hypersnap will save off a JPG of each snapshot. You don't need to exit your game to save off the JPG.

One Question - Does anyone here know where I can get a complete list of the keyboard shortcuts for the PC version of the game?

Thanks!

TripHammer
09-22-2008, 11:39 AM
I find jumping up on the boundery walls and crouching down to be a very good spot. Usually players can't tell where it's coming from. They'll soon figure it out though. Prolly the best thing you could learn to do as a sniper on Mos Eisley is learning to wall jump and get on buildings you can't normally get on. Like the cantina. There's several ways to get up there. This serves as a good sniping spot because you can take a shot and move a couple steps to get out of the line of fire coming back at you. It's a large roof with contours that allow for quick stepping out of the line of fire (except from the top of the hangar or buildings of the same height or greater).

Even if players (ground targets) know you are up there.. not everyone knows how to get up there and players are usually forced to take another sniping position against you.

Welcome to LucasForums, turgon.

It is very difficult to find in stores nowadays - and as you've seen, this has jacked up the price on auction sites and online stores. As Bokkenblader says, Steam is perhaps the cheapest place to get a copy of the game, and a good few other Star Wars games to boot. ;)

1) Steam.

2) Don't bump old topics.

The thread's a sticky, so it can't be bumped, and it's stickied for precisely the sort of question that Turgon asked.

10-19-2009, 11:34 PM
Or if you don't mind a used copy, there is always Ebay. If you look hard enough sometimes you'll find a great deal! You can also buy a used or new copy off of Amazon I'm sure.

The bad news? NOT A SINGLE COMMENT. And I know there is always someone around this forum, viewing various threads, but not posting comments on them.

Here's what I want to say to those who visit but do not post: Please start posting comments around here and maybe we'll all help revitalise Battlefront and start making great mods.
