First Pad, thanks for the assistance you provide to us...
Next, I've made a small list of questions I consider important :
  • How many units will there be per faction ?
  • How many weapons will each unit have ?
  • Will heroes be still invincible ?
  • Will there be subtitled or translated movies in SWBF II ?
  • Will some of the SWBF I original maps be restored in SWBF II ? (Endor, Geonosis, Kamino, Theed and all others)
That's all for the moment... If you could send those questions to Pandemic Studios, it would be nice...

Thanks in advance !...

I too would like to know why the gunship shot laser bolts in the trailer. It makes it look weird.

- Will there be more maps included then how many there were with SWBF I?
- We've been hearing alot about the starfighters and aircraft of the game. And we've some new clone wars vehicles, but, will the Empire and Rebellion get any new ground vehicles?

Heck, there are still infantry in this game?

Oh, can someone update their site? Gamespot is more useful. Othewise, why bother.

Personally, I think that Republic gunship's spheres can use both laser bolts and beams, like the Spider Droid...

They are the same as for SWBF. You can consult them here or there.

The problem being that the Spider has two different cannons. (one for laser bolts, the other for the beam) The Gunship sphere turrets only have one.

Nevertheless, I think that several effects can be affected to only one cannon...

maxloef, I've not seen laser bolts in Star Wars prelogy, but that does not mean that they do not exist !
Regarding AT-ST's sounds, I've not read somewhere that there were problems with them...

Well the AT-ST doesn't sound like it does in the movies. It's sound was closer to the AT-AT's firing sound but more high pitched. As for the Hailfire droid wheels, I don't think they should change that, I'm pretty sure that's an effect of moving quickly. Wheels sometimes appear to be moving backwards in real life too if they are going fast enough.

I see what you mean, now... But such effects for Hailfire's wheels won't be easy to create and apply... And regarding AT-ST's sounds, you're right again... But I don't think Pandemic will change them for others...

Of course ! If you watch all SWBF II trailers, you'll see you can play as General Grievous, Obi-Wan Kenobi and many others... (I believe you can play with a custom Jedi...)

PS : Do not forget to remove your post containing only a point...

Excuse me, I thought you were still speaking of SWBF's installation problem under Windows 2003... As for me, the reply isn't positive, because this OS is not really made to allow games to be installed ; After all, it is a professional Windows version, and we're not at work to play video games...

Yes, when you'll play as a Jedi / Sith. Moreover, it exists a trailer of SWBF II showing a short duel between General Grievous and Master Kenobi...

i guess the only three things i truly deeply care about that have yet to be answered:

1. order 66 planets in?

2. who or what is the droid commander unit? (please let it be crab droid, i could settle for a magnaguard, yellow painted battle droid sucks)

3. is the juggernaut in the game?

for all i know these forums could have the answer but i am very new and i was so impressed with how you guys run things i joined. better that lucasarts forums

Yea, I guess you are right, the Os isn't meant for gaming. Being a Software Engineering major at my college, I get all of Microsoft's products (except Office) free, so I updated to Win2k3. It has some advantages over XP and 2000 that I wanted. I just wasn't happy when I had to wipe out my hard drive and install Win2k to just to play SWBF. I guess I did it to my self...

Anyway, it seems to me that SWBF and SWBF2 are pretty much the same game with a few tweeks to the characters and other small changes. I am wondering if SWBF2 can play any correctly made/modded map from SWBF. There doesn't seem to be any functionally changes to the maps. Also, I would like to know if there is a release date out there yet, for the demo.

I don't think you'll find Jango... On the other hand, his son, Boba, has more chances to be in SWBF II...

It is surely a Standard Battle Droid... (Also known as "Tactical Droid")

Sure sounds like the AT-AT, doesn't it? All what it really has is some laser turrents that aren't as powerful as an AT-AT's, and missiles. If they balance it correctly, the Juggernaut should have about the same amount of armor as the AT-TE's, and it would take something like two 'slug' tanks to take one out in a head-on assault.

As for questions,

-Will each of the sides recieve a new unique unit?
-How will the 'Hunt' mode work exactly?
-Will players be able to customize certain classes (as in color and appearance)?

Will you always be the green team? I think it would be nice if each faction (Clones, Rebels, Imerials, CIS) had its own color.

cheers all round for Pad. and do you know when we can get some answers?


Some of the funniest moments in Star Wars:

Qui-Gon Jinn (gesturing to nudge Watto's mind): "I don't have anything else, but credits will do fine."
Watto: "No, they won't!"
Qui-Gon Jinn (nudging harder): "Credits will do fine."
Watto: "No, they won't! What, you think you're some kind of Jedi, waving your hand around like that? I'm a Toydarian! Mind tricks don't work on me, only money!"

Exile: "I believe they call that 'pulling a Bindo'"

Mace Windu:"This party's over!"

Turbo tanks are only vulnerable from above, a well placed artillery barrage or an airborne strike is about all that can defeat it.

True, but then again, the AT-AT could only be defeated by a snowspeeder's tow cable. But the developers made it that a tow cable, while it being the most effective way of taking a walker out, could also be destroyed by consentrated amounts of turrent fire and missiles. The same will probably go for the Juggernaut; taken out more easily by air strikes, but missiles and lasers will also do.

Sorry if this has been mentioned...
Will ai units use the opposing teams vehicles (like we have seen in some mod maps)?
And will fighters attack ground targets instead of just other spacecraft?
