  1. Huh. So after... what, three years and change? Smugglers can actually... smuggle. Wacky.
  2. It's the same kind of deal as Star Wars fanfilms. The people who make them don't get sued for copying Lucas or borrowing that actor who said the line "TK421, why aren't you at your post?" or using William's music in public because noone's making any money out of it. You know, I bet the world would be a better place if we applied the same philosophy to everything in life, heh.
  3. I have the technical expertise of a 21st-century ape - I can do a little html, mostly by accident - so I can't be much actual help. But I will definitely keep an eye on how this goes. I'm pretty damn surprised that LA and SOE aren't getting in a huff about it... in fact, I'm inclined to disbelieve it entirely. They have only themselves to blame.

  5. SWG will never have a *last* publish...
  6. *cackles insanely* *tries to answer, cackles some more*
  7. Holy crap, Deft's still paying attention.
  8. Nah, that's just the result of DMUK's sparkling personality. But yeah, I think the only reason SWG is still going right now is because of people who have decided to give it a try without ever knowing what things were like pre-CU or NGE.
  9. Perhaps a more appropriate question would be "why would you want it to run on your computer in the first place?" But I am probably being too negative and sarcastic. That's what SWG Stratics thought, which is why I no longer write for them...
  10. Yes, that's the model of the Falcon. It can be made by traders with the appropriate skill tree, like most ships. Unless they changed it.
  11. Thanks, Hugo. That's pretty much the effect I was going for, heh.
  12. That one sounds like the 'Necrosis goes for a walk' scenario. HS02 was going to be one of those in a player city; but I was late, died as soon as I arrived, and lost interest because there was no in-character explanation for it.
  13. They were all starsider, and took place... hm... you know, it's all bleeding together. Some before the CU, some after, I think. Prophets of the Dark side was about one of those spontanious events that the Powers That Be would occasionally trigger. People on either side of the civil war would get a message to get to a certain place, they'd go, stuff would happen. Not sure how often that particular scenario happened. For all I know it was the only thing they ever did. Does that kind of thing still happen at all?
  14. Just thought I'd pop into the first SWG forums I ever signed up to and mention that SWG Stratics has opened a movie section. Go watch my movies before I get in trouble with the big bosses again, just in case. http://swg.stratics.com/content/movies/movies.php Some may think it's odd, me mentioning it here, rival website and all. But we're all good buddies! Really! And our elite hacker division are in no way responible for your technical difficulties, DMUK. Trahern/Obten.
  15. Anyone else remember when you could almost buy your own ship for 10k? ...Neither can I.
  16. Must... resist... nostalgia... ...Okay, I'm done.
  17. Don't kill them. Join them. Killing stormtroopers is what the Jedi Knight series is for.
  18. ...Yes. The only downside is, I was writing an editorial about it, and now I have to change it.
  19. As always, I'll believe it when I see it and not before. The deciding factor is the money, unfortunately.
  20. It is not just the power players, thankyou. Hear is a link to the most concise report on the whole thing that I've ever read: http://mmorpg.com/discussion.cfm?load=forums&loadforum=433&loadthread=70831&setstart=1&loadclass=103&fp=1024,768,2067942390,20060315013326 If you get SWG, you're better off not having played it before. Personally, I'd advise against giving SOE any of your money. Some people who have quit will no longer buy a LA game either, but LA has been involved with plenty of fine games. SOE has frelled both incarnations of EQ as well as SWG, and this is why Smedley is considered to be some sort of devil creature while people still only blame Lucas for the the prequels (and Greedo shooting first of course). If you want more of my personal opinions, feel free to go read Obten's Emotes at swg.stratics.com. Not that I'm plugging myself, since I'm not writing that stuff anymore...
  21. My account is now officially dead. I seem to have had more problem with the fact that I uninstalled the game than merely quitting. I guess hope springs eternal, despite the fact I suspect the game is doomed.
  22. I'm suspicious of everything until something actually happens.
  23. Believe it or not, some people have yet to try a single massively multiplayer online game; so that was actually a smart question. And better to ask here than the official forums, because we all know how many more Hugos there are over there. If you want single player Star Wars, I suggest Jedi Academy and Knights of the Old Republic. I hear good things about Empire at War which comes out this month, too, but that's a strategy game. The other two are more... personal.
  24. Whether or not they should, many of them have.
