Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Real Intelligent there! Seeing how the PS2 Battlefront sales were great! They are leaving alot of people out who bought the game. If they can offer patches to fix things like the earlier patch for PS2 then they can offer downloaded material like new maps.

I don't own a PS2, so I can't be sure, but I don't think it's LucasArts or Pandemic trying to screw PS2 owners. I think the PS2 is not physically capable of downloading new content like the XBox and PC can, simply since 99% of PS2's out there do not have hard drives.

It might be possible with memory cards or something, but they probably decided against it because on the XBox and PC, the developers can say: "We know this platform definitely has a hard drive, and has at least X space on it..." "However, we don't know what a PS2 has, and we can't write a zillion different files for a zillion different PS2 memory combinations, so unfortunately PS2 will not get new content."

Are there ANY PS2 games that offer you new content? Don't rag on LA/Pandemic if nobody else is offering - it may not be possible.

I'd prefer to see more work on the net code and less on the eye candy , Last patch was exceptional, more of it, worry about extra maps later.


For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained! A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.
This one....a long time have I watched. Never his mind on where he was. Hmmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh! Excitement. Heh! A Jedi craves not these things.

You are reckless!

Back on topic, though: SWBF sounds weirder and weirder. If it was in the movie, it's in the game, regardless of whether or not it fits in . It's amazing to me that people think that's fun, but oh well.

Quote:

Many, many, many times. It's like the people who want Ewoks as a playable civilization for Galactic Battlegrounds. Sigh. Some people just need to look up the word "no", realize they're beaten, and move on .

As for your post... SW: BF is pretty inaccurate to say the least and has a lot of stuff that doesn't fit in, so your argument is actually invalid. Although I do agree with you.

Or something very simple like that - not overpowering. This would allow a Jedi / Sith class that could be fun, and useful, but if everyone were a Jedi, they couldn't win against an army that had all rocket launchers, for example. Or even all soldiers for that matter. But they could be useful in certain situations.

Or not - I think this would be fun, but not necessary. In any event, I really like SWBF.
Fun? Possibly. Appropriate to include as a class? Still, no. I have played every JK game that exists; a "dumbed-down" version of a force-user is still an effective Jedi.

Whether or not playable Jedi appear in Battlefront is not for you to decide. Rather it's up to the folks at Pandemic/LucasArts and any mod-makers.

As a player your only choice is to use them or not.

Saying "how many times do I have to say no this game was not made to support this" is not an argument, rather it's "I will keep shouting until you stop having this opinion I don't like."

These folks are dismissing the very possibility that it could be MADE TO WORK. That's not the point though, these people just feel that playable Jedi will taint "their" game, hence the whining back.

Anyway, this thread is getting off topic. Are we arguing about playable Jedi again, PC Vs. Console or talking about the Jabba's palace map? ; )

I can't see much of the map, but the rancor and jabba sure look good. And we'll hopefully be able to add custom maps and all that

Looking good!

Hey i heard that Jabba´s Palace map will be Patch1.1 only!


From the Jabbas Palace ReadMe file:

The Rancor:
- The Rancor eats Players who havn´t update the Game to Version 1.1 yet.
- The Rancor eats Teamkillers faster then anyone can complain about the voting procedure.


Hmm, i just wonder what Jabba part will be in the map.
Maybe he will eat complainers at breakfast.

Maybe Jabba burps cause he is bloated. The Rancor exceeds my expectations. Wonder if you can kill them. No vechiles, lots and lots of nade throwing thats for sure. Jabba thought one thermal detonator would be bad.



Thank you sir may I have another

damn, it would have been cool to have been able to walk around the perimeter of the palace with nice little sniping spots up in the towers. I don't really care too much about vehicles in this map, but I wish there would have been some stuff outside too. Oh well, looks fun anyway!

I hope so much they release the map as a part of a patch. Because it will be just like JA only 1/8th of the people will have the map. And most servers will not run it.

Many people had the xmas bonus pack from Raven, I think about 90% did.

And by releasing this it means they enabled something to ADD maps. (instead of replacing them). So it is a patch....Also i think you'll need to have 1.1 for this

If they showed me a screenie of Jabba, frozen Han, the rancor and the main door, I would know just as much. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for some insights on how the map is going to look like, but if they make a movie, I'd say they could have added a bit more to show.

A positive note on the vid: yay! It's true and it looks like they are doing some serious trouble to make it look good as well.

Nice looking map, can't wait. I hope the rancor actually moves around the map and doesn't just stay in one place eating anything foolish enough to go near it.
Next we want a death star map damn it

Hoping for Bots!

I truly hope the dev team remembers the entire community and not just the mp. I love the bot support for this game, and with my sat connection bots are my only option.

The details to the map look great, I'm really looking forward to one more map to my SWBF selection. It'll be interesting using clones and Cis units in it as well.

In my opinion, If they can't make a download such as the Jabba's Palace map for all three version of Star Wars Battlefront then they should not even bother making any in the first place. They are alienating playstation 2 players again. Just like they did when they chose not to make KOTOR, KOTOR II, Jedi Outcast, and Jedi Academy for PS2. It makes me so mad! I haven't bought a microsoft product since 2000 because of that reason!
