SWGEmu...
 
I dunno if this is allowed on these forums (if it is not allowed then please edit it). I did not read in the rules about not posting private server stuff, so...

swgemu.com is making an emu for SWG (private servers). We are still in Pre-alpha and need every programer's help finishing. It is open source so you can help the project get done faster. We have about 50 programers working on it and about 10 of them actually doing a lot of work.

My Server's Site: (this was made by Chilastra's Exiles)
http://www.spraticnet.com/

I have been playing SWG since beta and I am very upset with what they have done to the game, so I am here to support swgemu.com and everything they do. If you feel the same way I do, please join us!

You can find out more information about SWGEmu @ www.truegalaxies.com
(DMUK)

Im definately gonna join you guys, but now that you're here can you please answer me this:

Is it legal? I mean, can you do it without getting sued by SOE?

DarthMaulUK 08-07-2006 06:10 AM

We (as in the LFN Network) will be posting a statement about SWGEmu shortly. Lucasarts have brought it to our attention.

The whole idea is VERY exciting and expect full updates from us shortly. Naturally, if any of you out there are coders - PLEASE lend your support.

I've made some changes to some earlier posts and apologise for any confusion caused.

hahahha sweeet so NO MORE JEDI???? :D

Jo 08-07-2006 10:37 AM

no, jedi will be back. what the EMU will do is it will utilize all of the patch.tre files that are up till patch 13. after this everything started going down hill. As of now the jedi path will once again be hologrinding. But if LucasArts is in fact backing up the EMU team like DMUK said, we can likely hope for a game we can all like. The EMU team is always listening to ideas on their forums. I haven't seen an organized Starsider server yet, but it would be nice. Otherwise im willing to gropu with any friends from Starsider and head to a new server :D. I'm so psyched about it.

marvidchano 08-08-2006 11:15 AM

they r making a whole new way of makin jedi i have read

Rogue15 08-08-2006 11:18 AM

cool so the profession trees will be back? :) including creature handler? and will the player bases be back?

Nedak 08-08-2006 01:00 PM

Wait.. So this will all be on a seperate website?

Rogue15 08-08-2006 01:25 PM

yeah will it also be the same $15 a month i'm already paying?

... WHAT? LUCASARTS ACCEPTS IT?? O_O but they made NGE, what... im confused. Are you doing a late aprils fool?

Jo 08-08-2006 08:25 PM

To answer rogue, i would say if Lucasarts is going to back it sure. If not and it continues the way it does, most servers will be free, of course donations always help for their maintenance. To answer Hugo. I'm sure at the end of the day they have seen the hype generated by the whole idea of pre-CU servers and have seen where they messed up.

Trahern Valley 08-08-2006 09:08 PM

I have the technical expertise of a 21st-century ape - I can do a little html, mostly by accident - so I can't be much actual help. But I will definitely keep an eye on how this goes. I'm pretty damn surprised that LA and SOE aren't getting in a huff about it... in fact, I'm inclined to disbelieve it entirely. They have only themselves to blame.

HUGOMAND 08-08-2006 10:19 PM

Thanks for the answer Joe, I'm really looking forward to get some official answers on this when DMUK publishes that information :)

marvidchano 08-10-2006 04:16 AM

i have bought an official swg emu disk and im really havin problems with it... is anyone playin EMU atm? if so could u plz help me by sendin me a pm?

japan 08-10-2006 10:13 AM

hi

Thank you for your your hard work to bring "pre-cu swg" alive SWGEMU team.

Audune 08-10-2006 12:10 PM

Hi, I'm Audune Ado'lynn at the SWGEmu forums.

Any and all talks we had with LA or SOE were deemed PRIVATE and that has not changed from what I've heard.

I have PM'ed the Forum Admin who has replyed on this topic asking that any information that LA be held until we (at SWGEmu.com) be notifyed of it first.

We have not heard of any "agreement" nor have we given one as of yet, if any.

There is no "Official" Emu disk out, and if you spent money on it, you were SCAMMED.

There is no IFs/Ands/Buts about it.

Dispute it to EBAY immediatly and get your money back. If you want a free copy, with free servers, free everything, go to www.swgemu.com and read the FAQ and read about setting up your client to connect to an Emulated server. There are many many posts on the boards that deal with this.

The ONLY official place you can get the SWGEmu from is www.swgemu.com

Period.

Markuss 08-10-2006 03:20 PM

that is some good news.

keep the good work going :)

So if it's true then how come the people from SWGEMU (points above) deny it. Also they never posted anything on their forums.. Wouldn't you think they would?

Everything will be back and the same up to publish 13.. certain servers will make slight adjustments. Such as having a pre-9 system instead.


EDIT: Please keep it to 1 post - Jan!

Audune 08-10-2006 05:10 PM

The cool thing about it, is that people will be able to choose alot of the rulesets.

Be it everyone can start as Jedi, or the Hologrind, Village...or even a compleatly custom setup.

Real experimenting will come some time down the road about what we can unleash from the beast that is SWG.

Aristotle 08-10-2006 06:52 PM

Exciting times indeed for lovers of the classic original Star Wars Galaxies before planet nerf/jedi struck like an asteroid. :)

Jo 08-10-2006 11:02 PM

Sweetness is on the way is all i can say. Damn i can rhyme :P

Rogue15 08-10-2006 11:51 PM

wow....i can't wait. until then, i'll try not to pay too much attention! otherwise i'll get depressed for a whoooooooooole year or so. :(

but keep up the good work, you guys rock!

also a few more questions:

will the expansion packs be available? and will the 'new character enhancements' be included as well? or will it simply be, anything before pub13? either way.....can't wait!

Jo 08-11-2006 02:24 PM

right now far as i can tell its anything before pub 13. getting the JTL part to work will be even more time. what the emu team is doing is practically rebuilding, the only difference is they got a foundation to work off of. I'm sure they will work on the expansions being added at a later time. Personally i can live without an expansion if we just got the original back heh.

Jan Gaarni 08-14-2006 03:56 AM

I hope they switch JTL from Wing Commander style to Star Wars style like it aught to be.

No skidding in space, no Wing Commander HUD. Get the classic Star Wars look back into the game so we can feel that we are in the Star Wars Universe. :thumbsup:

Jo 08-14-2006 10:06 AM

with that kind of talk, it sounds like you would come back Jan. :D

nope... got it from one of the moderators on swgemu.com

Dark Sad Shadow 08-16-2006 06:03 PM

if you can make it work FINE without any bugs, (directx etc etc) please count me in!!! i wanna play galaxies but the trial SUX!!!! i installed direct x 9c and didnt worked

Doc Valentine 08-18-2006 04:12 AM

Will the developers include some of the fixes that were made after pub 13? There were still problems with the game back then. One thing I do like about the NGE is the looting system, looting used to be so tedious.

However this all sounds amazing and I am extremely excited to hear this is going down. Keep up the good work! :)

Lies. None of the devs or mods are distributing the cient, particularly not in disk form, and definetly not for a fee.

If you "bought" a disk purporting to contain the emu client, you were scammed and are an idiot.

You can download the client (and even the server binaries) at http://swgemumods.com. However, keep in mind that you actually have to have the IP for the server you would like to join before being able to login. It's not as simple as just downloading the files and clicking play.

all i can say is S...T....F.....U N00B

I rest my case

Jo 08-20-2006 10:32 AM

Easy guys, lets not turn this into a flame war. Thats not what this thread is about.

HUGOMAND 08-20-2006 10:37 AM

So you did buy it?

Ironic, considering the following:

The emu has never been for sale. The emu is not for sale. The emu will never be for sale. (I'm reiterating this because I don't want to see anyone get ripped off by attempting to buy something that is free.)

Why would you pay for an OPEN SOURCE PROJECT (I'm assuming you were one of the few who got suckered into buying the disks from that cat who made a listing on eBay)? And then call somebody trying to help you out a "noob"?

Thanks for letting me know that these forums are not worth coming back to.

DarthMaulUK 08-24-2006 03:20 PM

Lets NOT do this - otherwise, the gag gun will be loaded and used.

HUGOMAND 08-25-2006 10:59 AM

DMUK, will that statement come anytime soon?

Trillium 08-25-2006 05:02 PM
