Exclamation *Official* PC Demo Thread

Well, the pc demo for Star Wars: Republic Commando has been floating around for awhile (apparently since as early as Jan 25th when the german Gamestar DVD magazine featured it on their pack-in disc) but now it's available on mainstream sites, so the floodgates are open (expanded from this old thread)

This single player demo weighs in at a hefty 421.14 mb installer file, and seems to be completable in about 15 minutes (more if you mess around). Yes, it is different from the Xbox version! It features a mission involving some wookiees and some trandoshans and some other stuff. ; )

Post your reviews, download links (working only please, nothing illegal), cool screenshots, questions, secrets, or other fun stuff.


To get you started, here are some cheats that seem to work:

` to bring down the console then type:

behindview 1 (for third person view, change to 0 to turn off)

fly (float around! type walk to go turn off)

ghost Same as above, but you can clip through walls too. Type walk to return to normal.

allweapons or loaded (cheat gives you all weapons, and since you can only hold one "non Republic" weapon, the rest will dump at your feet)*

*Bear in mind that the Demo is missing some weapons from the full version (see the official site over at LucasArts.com for details on these missing weapons that you can't use)

There may be other cheats (they seem to be similar to the various Unreal/UT cheats out there, so good luck)

Please do not post any full version spoilers, but if you can't control yourself, use the SPOILER tags, or simply don't post them here, PERIOD.

I scanned my exe, and found out the one I have isn't a virus.

So, a good bittorrent one:

played through the demo thrice last night, and am very excited about the retail release. this is just enough gameplay to pique my interest and make me want more ... talk about a teaser. the gameplay is smooth, the ability to command your squad-mates is almost second-nature, the multiple options/tactics available to the player will only increase the game's re-playability, the voice acting is awesome (fixer's a freakin riot, scorch scares the beejeezus outta me), and the music is top-notch. BUT there did seem to be some crappy clipping issues, such as scorch's gun going INTO a wall:

... and i believe i even saw a wookiee walk thru one of the commandos at one point. *shrugs*

as for rockin images, i have a few ...

I don't think you'll get to fight him. It might screw up with the plot of episode III, but maybe not, haven't been following spoilers.

More sites are mirroring the demo ... still just the magazine released version, nothing new on the LucasArts official site (that is why this isn't a 'top post'). Check it out at 3D Gamers, Gameguru Mania, and Worthplaying

For some reason, my squad mates dont appreciate when I strategically kill them. We're in a safe place, and one of them is low on health. Naturally, I kill and revive him, but rather than thank me, they gets mad. Don't they realize I am killing them to increase their chances of not dying?

Scorch got caught in a wall in the game at the very beginning, and I didn't realize it until way later when I needed him to enter the room. :\

Fixed.

I blew myself up with the concussion rifle and the mean guy said I'm more of a danger to myself. That's your squad leader you're talking about buddeh. :/

It is strategic! I want them to go into battle with the maximum possible health.

And they are all mean. One of the times I killed myself, Fixer said I should let Delta-Six-Two handle the explosives. Errr... Maybe more than once.

Whatever you do don't use behindview 1, it's uuugly. Obviously they'll have to do something with that for MP, but for now, it's pretty crappy looking. ; p

Then again, none of the Unreal games were really very playable in 3rd person (camera is too low, no crosshair), not like the JK series. Still, it would be nice...


In regards to taking screenshots you can bind a key to them in the console. I use F12 for taking shots.

It saves them in /Gamedata/System/ as a bmp file if I'm not mistaken, just like UT (obviously). ; )

Here is another link to download the demo. I dont know for sure if it works, but it is the link that the Lucasarts webpage gives, so I would imagine it does.

I have played it today but I stoped playing it because there was a question about any picxels the demo needs and I was in fear that my monitor could be damaged.

My opinion: So far, so good!

The other Commandos also do melee attacks.

I've seen one where the Commando gets behind an enemy, kicks him down, and then shoots him in the back.

And I've seen one where a Slaver was attacking with knives, and the Commando grabbed him, and stabbed the Slaver with his own knife!

Post *demo spoilers* (updated)

Here's some pics I took at max settings (and yes, you can bind F12 or whatever to a screenshot key and the bmps appear in Gamedata/System/ just like UT).

Yes, I didn't bother to resize them so they are huge (like 160 kb's), only converted to JPEG. They are also fairly dark, but that's how you see them in-game.

Demo "Special" Weapons
All weapons have reloading except the pistol, which recharges (infinite ammo) much like your first gun in Unreal. The grenades you toss don't seem to have variable throwing power or distance, just fire and forget (like SWBattlefront). The Sniper Rifle has two levels of zoom.

(PS: It's interesting how you can't heal the Wookiee's and they can only use melee attacks themselves)


Then you get to use that Trandoshan Turret that fires missiles, and you get four types of grenades. Thermal Detonators, electric shock ones, sonic grenades and I forget the other type. There's a Republic Gunship in the demo, but it's used in a cutscene, rather than drivable.

Your wrist blade only seems to work using the Trooper weapons, except the pistol. For the pistol and everything else you do a rifle butt or pistol whip attack which seems to be just as powerful, although a few of the bigger guns are slower.

If you're curious what your character looks like in third person, here he is, and here!

Yeah, you're right. I've seen some of that too. Like when a grenade flies in, I've seen a trooper grab it and throw it back at the enemy.

You get four types of grenades: thermal detonators, sonic detonators, electrostatic charge detonators, and diversionary flash detonators.

The pistol whip seemed weaker to me. I could usually one hit kill with the wrist blade, but I would have to finish off enemies i pistol whipped by shooting them (or hitting them again).

Other than the fact that Trandoshans are actually worthy enemies of wookiees, and they're way too short (they should def. be taller than humans), the demo rocked.

I finally played through only getitng incapped once.
spoiler:
and that's right after you go in the first door and they're on the catwalks above you. I just can't stay alive at that part no matter what I do.

The Wookiees are too big, too. And some of the Trandos look more like Nikto to me:



I think they just took a lot of liberties in the models, to give it the feel they wanted. It doesnt really bother me. At least its better then the "Noghri" in Jedi Academy.

Yeah, I had problems with that part too. What I do now is
spoiler:
go right to where I need to plant the explosives, and place them as soon as I can, and shoot/nade Trandos in the mean time. It usually gets me past that part fine. I have the most problems with the area right after that. The one with all the droids.

Maybe it is, I could be wrong. As to the types of grenades I just know that one type it seemed like if I threw it and the explosion was onscreen (not that it actually hit me), MY VIEW was distorted. ; )

I guess you have to throw it and then look away...

I assume the electrostatics are for droids, but what about the other two? Is one better? I figure TD's would be good for destroying vehicles or structures, but so far you haven't had to really do any of that (all destruction is done as an objective point). I don't have any pics, but the TD's were the familiar round balls, then there was an hour-glass shaped symbol and a "shaver" symbol, or something.

The ones that you said distorted your vision are the diversionary flash detonators (the hour-glass ones). And yes, that wont happen if you look away. I actually found those to be really powerful, especially against those two really strong Trandos. When I threw them, the affected enemies stopped attacking at all, so I could just go through and slice them up with my wrist blades. The main difference (as far as I could tell) between the thermal detonators and the sonic detonators was that the thermal detonators bounce off of things and explode after a certain amount of time. The sonic detonators (the ones with the green) will stick to what they hit, and will detonate after a certain amount of time or by proximity. They also seemed to have a larger blast radius then TDs, but I'm not sure. I don't really know much about the EC Detonators (I didn't really use them), but the site says they damage droids and organics.

The elctrogreandes are really good against droids. I remember using them int he Xbox demo. They also give organics a jolt and stuns them.

I like the sonic grenades a lot more then thermal detonators because the TD suck. Sonic grenades kill instantly, but sometimes TD will just deal damage.

spoiler:
I'll be running around like crazy and shooting after ordering a clone to plant the bomb, but I still get hit in like one shot :/


I also think the clone rifle is way underpowered. I takes half a clip for me to kill anything while my handblaster kills in 2-4 shots.

Was kind of funny the last time I played the demo, I left my entire squad behind (all incapacitated)
spoiler:
when you first get ambushed on the catwalk and have to blow that hatch to escape through the tunnel to the next part


Yet my squad is alive and well (though holding their sides as if wounded) in the next part!
