One problem with that...The Beta came out on Friday or Saturday. . .Unless he calls 1-2 days "a while", he hasn't been playing for a while.

I agree with the poster who said that Lucasarts shouold use the Battlefield 2 engine, because the SWBF engine is horrid!

The BF2 engine would never work on consoles. Lucasarts aims at the consoles with SWBF 2. They know they sell more to the consoles. That's why we PC gamer have to endure a game, that's only half of what it could be.

Hopefully, the Galactic Conquest team can pull something off.

I know about Battlefield Modern Combat. I'm not sure how it'll turn out to be.

Nonethless, Modern Combat is like PC port to consoles. Usually, it doesn't turn out too badly.
The opposite is not true. A console port to PC is 90% of the time a failure.

The beta is excellent. Rebels are not so underpowered as they are in the original. I was pleased to find even the rebels have a mortar guy now (the wookie).

Those that loved the original and are still playing battefront (like me) will love it.

The space level is terrible, I really don't see how they "asked the people that play it" when all clans steer well clear of any maps with vehicles / ships in it. Capture the flag really doesn't work as the boards are far to big for it to be playable.

Still, the core of the game is amazing as ever and all the things I like are in there plus some. I was inititally concerned to loose my beloved imp/cis pilots but when i found out the magna / officer and wookie in effect replaced them i was over the moon.

Rockets should have been given a big delay before firing to stop the noobs using them to kill infantry..but least it keeps the rocket guys happy i guess.

Since the Beta is out and some of u got it, u may can tell us more about the jedi now, i read many threads that jedi's are unwanted and i understand that point, anyway it would be great if u could speak about the Jedi Balancing on the Battlefield, if they are really that UBER like many said or if they are just a balanced feature, even would be good to tell something about the other hero/s i know that Obi Wan is Playable and Jango, right? So even tell us something about the non Jedi Heros

many thx in advance

Nope, it's not the same game. If you look at the screenshots, it seems like a ugly version of BF2.
They also added another faction.

You could make a quick search on game sites instead of believing the crap retailers tell you.

Anyone could say something about first person view for Jedis/Heroes and Starfighters/Vehicles? Is it still possible to play from that POV?

Those saying this game is awesome, I take it you've played the beta already...

Care to give details? Also, compare it to the previous installment!

3DGamers-Subs, start your engines ..

They are makin' a huge fuss about it, SWBF2-Ads all over the show.

It occurs to me that this might not be a (common) beta after all, but more like a
stress test.

Moreover the Beta Forums are up and running.
Worth looking at, interesting stuff in there.
People talking about a dev chat, for example.

I would like to say this and end this beta topic.

SWBF1 WAS A BETA. They mad a TON OF DOUGH on a beta from Battlefield 1942 and then did there marketing research and WE PAID THEM on this one! I mean seriously, these guys released a beta for 50 bucks that sold for a YEAR strong. They ran there servers like doo doo. I hear there is a new company doing the server admin. Let's hope all that money they got will at least give us better game support. I am not expecting alot more out of this game except new and bigger maps and the flying. I have it for both consoles and although graphics are better on the Xbox, PS2 and PC have better servers. Plus we can host our own games from dedicated servers or PC.

I have no complaints like most about the game in general. We run on PS2 and have clan wars, etc. We have built quite a community out of this. Besides, how many games do you have that are a year or older that you still play religiously? I have 2. SWBF and Socom 2. That's it for me. Now the new releases are out and I will be content for another year.

There's the Galactic Conquest mod for BF1942, so maybe they could do a little something for BF2.

if you have gamespy account use that to access the download - then for key code use the link above linked by zerted.

anyway i finished to test this beta right now. what i can say.. this game is outdated, it should have been released in 1999: i dont see any improvements since BF1. The space map is ridicolous.

i am very angry that our money earned with SWBF1 were spent (0,05% of them now i suppose) for such game that will be killed by reviewers and gamers too.

2.1 Confidential Information Defined. “Confidential Information” shall mean (a) any and all information relating to or contained in the Beta Software, Beta Program and/or the Game, including, without limitation, information relating to (i) the performance, capabilities, bugs and contents of the Beta Software, (ii) Recipient’s feedback and comments, (iii) any other Beta Program participant’s feedback and comments, and (iv) any LucasArts or Pandemic employee’s feedback and comments, (b) the existence and terms of this Agreement, and (c) any and all information relating to the future or proposed games, services or business operations of LucasArts and/or its partners or licensors. Confidential Information includes, without limitation, all such information disclosed to Recipient prior to the effective date of this Agreement. Recipient acknowledges and agrees that the Confidential Information constitutes valuable trade secrets of LucasArts.


2.2 Confidentiality Obligation. Recipient shall keep the Confidential Information in confidence and shall not publish, disclose, post or otherwise make available, directly or indirectly, any Confidential Information to any third party. However, Recipient may disclose the Confidential Information in accordance with a judicial or governmental order; provided, however, that Recipient shall give LucasArts reasonable written notice prior to disclosure and shall comply with any applicable protective order or equivalent. ONCE THE COMMERCIAL VERSION OF THE GAME HAS BEEN RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC, RECIPIENT’S CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATION SHALL CONTINUE ONLY WITH RESPECT TO INFORMATION CONCERNING THIS BETA PROGRAM AND ALL FEEDBACK AND COMMENTS (WHETHER FROM RECIPIENT, ANY OTHER PARTICIPANT, OR FROM LUCASARTS OR PANDEMIC EMPLOYEES).


3. Ownership. Except for the revocable, limited license expressly granted hereunder, LucasArts retains all rights, title and interests in and to the Beta Software and all copies thereof, and all Game character data in connection therewith. The Beta Software is copyrighted and is protected by United States copyright laws and international treaty provisions. Recipient acknowledge that the Beta Software contains valuable trade secrets of LucasArts, and that LucasArts and/or its partners or licensors own all intellectual property rights in and to the Beta Software, including, without limitation, all patent rights, copyrights, inventions, trade secret rights, trade dress rights, trademark rights and intellectual property rights therein and thereto. Recipient may not remove the copyright and other proprietary rights notices from the Beta Software. Recipient agrees that this Agreement shall be retained with all printed and electronic copies of the Beta Software and documentation constituting the Beta Software. Recipient agrees to prevent any unauthorized copying or distribution of the Beta Software. Except for the license expressly provided herein, LucasArts does not grant Recipient any express or implied right in any patents, copyrights, trademarks, or trade secret information of LucasArts and/or its partners or licensors. In accordance with Section 1.4, Recipient agrees LucasArts and/or its partners or licensors own all rights, title, and interests in any and all of Recipient’s feedback and comments, without any remuneration, compensation or credit to Recipient. To the extent that any of the rights assigned herein cannot presently be assigned under applicable law, Recipient agrees to assign such rights at such time as the rights are capable of being assigned. Recipient agrees at LucasArts’ request to execute such further documents and to do such further acts as may be necessary or desirable to document, perfect, register or enforce LucasArts' and/or its partners or licensor’s ownership of any of the rights, title and/or interests hereunder, in whole or in part including, without limitation, execution of a copyright assignment in a form provided by LucasArts in its sole discretion. If Recipient fails or refuses to execute any such documents, Recipient hereby appoints LucasArts as Recipient’s attorney in fact, which appointment is coupled with an interest and is irrevocable, to act on Recipient’s behalf and to execute, deliver, record and file such documents. The rights granted, assigned and/or to be assigned by Recipient hereunder are granted for the entire universe and shall inure in perpetuity, and, as set forth above, no further consideration shall be payable to Recipient at anytime in connection therewith. Recipient will acquire no right to use, and will not use without LucasArts' prior written consent, the names, characters, artwork, designs, tradenames, copyrighted materials, trademarks or service marks of LucasArts or its parent, related or subsidiary companies, employees, directors, shareholders, assigns, successors, licensees, partners or licensors: (a) in any advertising, publicity or promotion; or (b) in any manner other than in accordance with this Agreement.


4. Injunctive Relief. Recipient acknowledges and agrees that a breach or threatened breach of any covenant contained in this Agreement would cause irreparable injury, that money damages would be an inadequate remedy and that LucasArts shall be entitled to temporary and permanent injunctive relief, without the posting of any bond or other security, to restrain Recipient, from such breach or threatened breach. Nothing in this Section 4 shall be construed as preventing LucasArts from pursuing any and all remedies available to them, including the recovery of money damages from Recipient.


5. No Warranty; No Liability For Damages; No Support; Character Data.


5.1 No Warranty. Recipient acknowledges that the Beta Software is a pre-release version and is not a final game. RECIPIENT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE BETA SOFTWARE MAY WELL CONTAIN ERRORS AND DEFECTS. THE BETA SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED “AS IS” WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF ANY KIND INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, MERCHANTABILITY, NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY OF THE BETA SOFTWARE, THE GAME AND ALL OTHER SERVICES IS WITH RECIPIENT. SHOULD THEY PROVE DEFECTIVE FOLLOWING THEIR RECEIPT BY RECIPIENT, RECIPIENT, AND NEITHER LUCASARTS NOR ITS PARTNERS OR LICENSORS, ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING OR REPAIR. Without limiting the foregoing, we do not ensure continuous, error-free, secure or virus-free operation of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, as applicable, the Beta Software, the Game, your account or continued operation or availability of any given server. Some states do not allow limitations as to how long an implied warranty lasts and/or exclusions or limitations of consequential damages, so the above limitations and/or exclusions of liability described herein may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may also have other legal rights which vary from state to state.


5.2 No Liability For Damages. IN NO EVENT SHALL LUCASARTS OR ITS PARTNERS OR LICENSORS, THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECT AND INDIRECT PARENT, SISTER AND SUBSIDIARY CORPORATIONS, OR EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, LICENSORS, OFFICERS AND/OR DIRECTORS OF ANY OF THE ABOVE, BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, PUNITIVE OR OTHER DAMAGES, OR LOST PROFITS, DATA OR BUSINESS) ARISING OUT OF THE USE OF OR INABILITY TO USE THE BETA SOFTWARE OR THE GAME, EVEN IF ANY OF THE ABOVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, no warranty is made that the Beta Software will generate computer programs with the characteristics or specifications desired by Recipient or that the Beta Software will be error-free. THESE DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTY CONSTITUTE AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS AGREEMENT.


5.3 No Support. LucasArts and Pandemic do not provide any support for the Beta Software. However, LucasArts may at its sole discretion provide an e-mail address and/or an online forum for Recipient to send any questions and/or comments regarding the Beta Software. LucasArts does not, however, make any representations or warranties as to the accuracy of any statements or advice provided in response to Recipient’s e-mail(s) and/or board postings.


6. Miscellaneous.


6.1 Survival. The provisions of this Agreement, other than the first sentence of Section 1.1 and Section 1.4, shall continue in full force and effect even after (i) the Beta Program has been terminated or completed and/or (ii) Recipient’s participation in the Beta Program has been terminated.


6.2 Governing Law; Jurisdiction. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of California excluding conflict of law rules and principles. This Agreement will not be governed by the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, the application of which is expressly excluded. Both parties submit to personal jurisdiction in California and further agree that any cause of action relating to this Agreement shall be brought in the County of Marin, State of California (if under State law) or the Northern District of California (if under federal law) and such courts shall have exclusive jurisdiction to determine the validity, construction and performance of this Agreement and the legal relations between the parties hereto. Recipient hereby waives any claim that such venue is improper or inconvenient.


6.3 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, such provision shall be modified to the minimum extent necessary to make it valid and enforceable, and the validity and enforceability of all other provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby.


6.4 Entire Agreement. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties hereto relating to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior oral and written and all contemporaneous oral negotiations, commitments and understandings of the parties. Except as otherwise described herein, this Agreement may only by changed or amended by a writing signed by both parties hereto.

Me, I probably won't have much time to do any serious testing, but I'm definately a bit curious. The wait time for me is 81 minutes. At least it works...
