  1. Ahto Spaceport Cantina is what you're looking for: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=791 Downtime is for general video game discussion (stuff that isn't Star Wars related).
  2. The LFN website server is down... I can't really do much about that but wait for it to come back up, unfortunately :\ (The forum is on its own server while all the networked web sites are on another server, fyi) But the site was launched quite some time back and we've been posting entries for it.
  3. But a Jedi starfighter is not the Millennium Falcon. It is more like a TIE Fighter or X-Wing, both of which end up suffering huge amounts of damage throughout the movie and are seen to be much more agile but a lot more fragile too.
  4. Anyway, that's my explanations of all that. But I did go back and watch the movie a few times. It's a very good movie because it has so much information about everything in the movie itself and from things it's referencing back in the original trilogy. They've done everything in that movie, not because it's cool, but because it makes sense within that universe.
  5. You should see it from my point of view as an admin. There are hundreds of spambots that are trying to post in areas that they can't post any more. So they spend an hour there looking at error messages and then finally give up. We've managed to cut down the spam posts by a huge amount and herd them into places where we can more easily cut them down.
  6. They do appear to be playing the long game on this one with Battlefront. I'm sure they've got movie tie-in DLC planned for each movie release, eps 7, 8 and 9 and the Anthology movies, Rogue One and the Han Solo one. Those alone would attract some interest for general movie-goers interested in playing a game with the things they've seen in the movie they just watched.
  7. Oh right, I almost forgot. I've archived the Jedi Knight forums today. I waited as long as I could for that one. However, don't worry about the SWK and XWA forums for now. As I've said previously in many other threads, I won't be moving either of those forums into the archive until the end of the year.
  8. More will change in the near future: http://www.lynkformer.com/prototype/newlf/ (incomplete mockup)
  9. @ Redwing: I've added the link to the Star Wars Gamer forum at the top of the archived communities.
  10. Yeah, I'll take care of the signpost link for the older forum sometime this weekend. I'll probably add something to forum templates to add a permanent link to Star Wars Gamer at the top of the page so that it's literally EVERYWHERE in those sections.
  11. From what has been said in the past by folks over at EA, the two other studios to be working on games are BioWare and Visceral Games. BioWare is most likely making an RPG since it's their thing while there have been hints coming out from Visceral to suggest that their game may be about Han Solo or a smuggler character. Of course, while BioWare and Visceral have been confirmed a long time back to be the two studios that are working on something big for Star Wars aside from DICE, what they're working on exactly is a mystery at this point in time.
  12. @CommanderAwesome: Moved your thread here: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=802
  13. Moved both of those threads and renamed the titles slightly to make sure people know they're for "Episode I: The Phantom Menace" They also have tags on them them that associate them with the game. Oh, and I made sure to leave permanent redirects back in the forum they were in originally so that people can find where they are now.
  14. Another heads up. I'm planning on trying to keep XWA (or at least, this specific forum of XWA) open until the end of the year. However, by the end of 2015, I'm going to go ahead and put everything into the LucasForums Archive: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=822 Again, you're all welcome to jump over to the Star Wars Gamer forum: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=783
  15. As some of you have already noticed, the LucasForums home page looks pretty empty right now since I put all the older Star Wars communities into the LucasForums Archive: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=822 Currently there are a few communities that haven't been put into the archive. These will be put into the archive at a later time since they have semi-active communities in them. Anyway, now that I've put all those older communities into the archive, there are probably some threads in there that people would want to have in a still active forum like Star Wars Gamer. So, with that in mind, if there are certain threads that are important that need to be transferred over to Star Wars Gamer, let us know in here so we can get those threads in here for people to continue using.
  16. Some of you have probably noticed that the forum home page looks pretty empty now. That is because I have moved most of the old Star Wars communities into the LucasForums Archive: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=822 This archive has been closed off to any new posts. Currently, JK, SWK and XWA have not been archived. Jedi Knight is next on the archive list but SWK and XWA, having the only two semi-active communities on LucasForums at the moments will be treated as special cases. Eventually, SWK and XWA will be archived, but I'm going through this process step by step so that people are more comfortable with the changes and can see them coming rather than it being a big surprise. Also, archiving those older communities will help us with the influx of spambots we've been getting for years.
  17. http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=822 The link to this forum is on the home page and is right under the Help & Feedback forum. Note that the LucasForums Archive has been closed to new posts. I also cleared out over a thousand spam posts... and I haven't even gotten all of them.
  18. Hey everyone... at least, everyone who may or may not be lurking on these forums even after all this time. Just a heads up, there are some big changes happening in LucasForums. I'll try to keep things short and sweet. - We've created a new unified fan site called "Star Wars Gamer" - Star Wars Gamer has a forum in LucasForums - We are planning to archive older Star Wars fan site forums on LucasForums in favour of having everyone be part of the Star Wars Gamer community - That means that in the near future, we will be archiving the Jedi Knight forums and closing them off to any new posts. - This is NOT a closure of LucasForums, all we're doing is funnelling everyone into the one Star Wars community instead of having many communities. - This is an effort to get everything ready for the new era of Star Wars games coming in the future. - Check out the Star Wars Gamer forum: http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=783
  19. Also, for those of you who are interested... Here's the temporary redesign for Star Wars Gamer: http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=222890 It's "temporary" for the reasons I've stated in that post... so don't worry if it seems too blue, it'll be better when we actually do get this entire place upgraded.
  20. Hey everyone. So, I have no idea if I've implemented it correctly since it's been a long time since I've played around with vBulletin style templates, but if you can see it and things are working, here is the TEMPORARY design for the Star Wars Gamer forum. I say TEMPORARY because we are hoping to upgrade the forum some time in the near future which will mean a clean new layout for the entire forum and an updated (though very similar) design for this specific part of LucasForums... and yes, the colour scheme is strikingly similar to the one for the Star Wars MMO forum... that's because I got lazy when choosing the colours and the two sites have similar colour schemes anyway so Also, just a couple of notes... Firstly, unlike the web site, the forum is not mobile friendly at the moment since trying to accomplish such a thing with vB3 is cause for suicide. I'll make a mobile friendly theme for the entirety of LucasForums when we make the upgrade to vB5. Secondly, for some reason, the image resize script we've been using over at the Star Wars MMO forums isn't working on this part of the forum yet, so if you're going to post large images that break the constraints of the current design, please use the [noparse][hidden][/hidden][/noparse] tags around them. We'll try to fix that problem asap. In the meantime, if anything else does seem to be going wrong with the temporary design, let us know right away so I can go in and fix whatever it is. In the meantime, every should buy Life is Strange--erm, I mean, I hope everyone is looking forward to the new Battlefront game since it's only days away *looks around* EDIT: Hooray, the image resize issue has been fixed. Thanks stoffe!
  21. @ Taak Farst: I don't think you understand... this is XWA These guys are always grumpy, especially if you're from the RogueSquadron.net forum and you decide to just waltz in here
  22. From experience, I find EA can go either way. They have either helped the creation of great games, or ruin games because of their asshattery. I'm going to take the wait and see approach on all this. As for swtor... the only reason it's still around is because it's still making money thanks to the free to play system/pay for sexy outfits thing it's got going on.
  23. We know a lot about Battlefront now... since it's coming out in about a week, but EA does have other games coming later on that haven't been revealed. What we do know is that EA has BioWare and Visceral Games working on a Star Wars game each. What these games will become, who knows. We can easily bet that we're getting a KotOR/Mass Effect style RPG out of BioWare, but it's a complete mystery as to what Visceral is going to come up with. Aside from those three big EA games, there's a bunch of mobile games no one really cares about and then there's SWTOR, which, to me, looks like it's about to wind down after The Knights of the Fallen Empire chapters end. Things will start slow, but that's good for us, because eventually things will escalate and we'll have built up this place enough by that time to be ready for whatever comes in the future.
