I've been waiting forever...

I know there will never be SWG precu officially again.  But I have been waiting to play the unofficial complete version forever.  Some day...

    first of all, I have no idea what you're talking about.

    second of all, me too.

    The dream is over. Its been too long. I bet you'd lose interest within a week.

    It's too bad they hit a point with the Emu where the code for the remaining missing systems wasn't included on the game disks. I really want to go back in time and play my Creature Handler again, but they're going to having to code that from scratch instead of recovering it from the disk data. If they ever manage to get the thing to a "complete" status, though, I'll definitely hop into the wayback machine and pay a visit, even though it means I need to get a new (or old) video card.

    you're probably right. After playing on test servers for years I'll probably quit within a week of an official launch.

    you've been mis-informed. They've been coding the server from scratch this whole time. That's why it's taken so long. They don't use code from the client as the server. That makes no sense.

    i lost interest in the unofficial version long time ago. SWG  died for me a long time ago.

    to paraphrase Grand Moff Tarkin

     Everyone is entitled to like what they choose to but it is amazing so many people still long for such a flawed product as SWG was.  It was my first mmo so I do remember the nostalgia and fun involved in it being my first mmo ut after playing so many other stable products I just can't see myself wanting to go back to this game as it was, now if they could somehow make it with the stability that say WOW has I'd be all for it but this game always had big problems to me that we were willing to overlook and if the best they could do is what they had right before the CU and NGE they can keep it.

    but yeah, to call this game Fantastic is like calling Twilight the Godfather of vampire movies....

    they aren't recreating all the flaws, unless by flaws you mean game systems that worked but you didn't like. Although systems like jedi and the frs are going to be reworked entirely. And individual community servers will have options like whether or not they allow 4 piece suits. There will also eventually be added content, including quests, possibly new starting species, and even new planets.

    we all see flaws in the old precu, which I played for years, but games like WoW, which is highly polished, is unbearable to me. So to each their own. Game mechanics flaws are better then game-not-fun flaws.

    i'm afraid that by the time its done and released the world will be experiencing the "generation 10" mmos and playing pre-cu would be like playing pacman.

     

    still, if the current mmo trend continues it might just still be worth it.
