Patch news

Well last week I wrote to Pandemic in an e-mail. It was just the webmaster's e-mail address on their site so I was surprised that it actually made it to the devs. Below is my question to them and their response:

Question: I realize you're all very busy but I have an important question from the Linux community. When are linux server files coming for Battlefront? Many of the larger server communites run servers only on linux, due to it's high stability. If you wish this game to have longevity, I suggest that these files be released somewhat soon. Is there a way an ETA for these files can be announced to the community? Thank you for your time.

Answer: While Lucasarts may not have announced Linux server files they are in development. There is a patch/update for both the dedicated server as well as the game itself due out this week that it may be a part of.
Official announcements regarding Star Wars Battlefront all come from Lucasarts and can be found on their message boards at:

http://forums.lucasarts.com/category.jspa?categoryID=12

To find out what will be released and when, keep an eye on the
Lucasarts Battlefront message boards. Any feedback you have can also be provided there.

Thank You

Thanks for asking, this is indeed good news

Thanks for asking this Stryker,
I hope to see some more "good" server around for SWBF soon.
Most of the high bandwith low ping servers are often full of players so its hard to find one where i can join.

I pushed my luck and wrote back to him asking about a remote console for admins. We'll see what he says if he responds.

Good work. I am sure it is going to be a pain to get the servers switched over to linux once the files come out...

Good times.

Dunno, I tried pressing my luck and e-mailed them again. It's been a month and no response.
