Where did you get SWBFII at early, or was it pre-ordered?

Where? Also, could you post a screenshot of the Coruscant Space level please?
EDIT: Just noticed the new pics on Gametoast. The game looks even better than I hoped it would be!

Can you change the number of reinforcements or the number of bots, or both, in single player?

I bought it today (UK highstreet) and its.....

AWESOME!!!!

System:
Athlon XP3200 1Gb RAM

Settings:
Maxxed Out (1280x960) full on!

Runs like a dream - well, when it isn'r crashing to desktop all the time......

Jedi mode is great if a little fiddly to start with.

Tantive Map is small but sweet. Can't wait to do the Death Star.

Only thing annoying me so far is: What do I press for screenshots?... 'PrintScrn' just captures to clipboard.

GAME (but in a highstreet store).

If it's an error, they'll probably pull it by tomorrow morning... I actually said to the guy - "This is on pre-order, right?" and he replied "No... it's in stock and on sale now".

I bought it straight away... once he'd helped me back on to my feet!

Well only fraps seems todo the screenshot job.Havnīt found an ingame key to take screenies.
The first screenshot i posted over at gametoast shows the deathstar minimap. Think about the prison area from EPIV plus the shaft.
Machinecult, iīm german not british so i got it from german online dealer.

Corellian corvette? You mean the blocade runner thingy? I donīt believe you can fly it. Havnīt tried to board it yet but donīt think itīs possible.

Some screenoids for you - probably nothing that you haven't seen before though.

You too, hun!

Don't just stand there... DIE!

Making a mess of the place

Err... help?!

Short work Jedi implementation really is great!

yay, i finally got it! It was in GAME.

Kashyyk space battle:



Hehe, geonosis training level is sweet, and Mygeeto kicks ass.

I was playing mustafar in instant action and there was sadly no anakin

Not pics so much as information. I bet nobody who has the game now played the beta beforehand. Am I right?

I'd like to know what they fixed or changed... I mean I'll find out myself within a week but still... for those of us not rushing out to buy the game the second it becomes available, some more info would be nice.

Kurgan,
remember the Gametoast beta buglist i posted? Well most bugs were multiplayer but i havnīt played much online yet because only a handfull guys are able to play online yet on home servers only.

But from the suggestions in the list i can say that i havnīt seen any changes in the final game yet.

There is only space coruscant in campaign and i have only played geonosis in training.

Oh yeh and on campaign utapau is a bit different from the beta, two commmand posts are in different places and there is a big communications thing.

And the stardestroyers are bigger than in the beta, or im going insane.

Same commander on geonosis, the thing that makes it even worse is that they bothered to put in a new clone commander on campaign when empire have to fight rogue clones.

AI is improved, but maul is on mustafar instead of anakin .



Kamino is changed a bit.
