We've got a group of 5 or so of us from the old days (some Avian, some MG) playing on this server now. We just started last week or so. It's a very stable server and it's just like you remembered. They run a hybrid of code from the various emu projects which results in a nearly complete game. CH even works. They fix bugs and add new code as it's available. Mature staff and a good player base make it a nice alternative to the swgemu servers. You can have 8 characters now (was 10) but they are constantly reviewing that as the playerbase grows and the economy develops.

If anyone is interested, give it a shot. www.swgawakening.com

We've been having a lot of fun experiencing this again and are hoping to have a PA hall soon, just as oon as I grind out architect. We'd love to see more of you all stop by! (and stick around, and, I don't know, maybe build a city :P ).

Sounds cool! Keep us updated. You never know, I may join in sometime (I still have original disks somewhere) but my playtime is generally limited and I suspect that matching up with US playtimes these days would be quite difficult.

I've got to get a new PC first. Using a POS with no vid card and not enough umph to run even old-school games.

"I should NOT have uninstalled SWG. I should NOT have uninstalled SW:G!!!"

Coming! Trying to.

Forgotten the controls too.

"Where's the frickin' manual???"

No video card, at all. Just the discreet graphics on the PC. It's a slim profile, so I don't have a card that will fit, and if I'm going to buy a new vid card I'll just buy a better pc anyway.

On-board graphics should be powerful enough these days to run it. Presumably you've tried it?

What he said.
Most older games runs fine on on-board due to DirectX run-time.

Tried it when I first bought this thing, but since then I've upgraded the RAM, which was extremely slow. I'll get my disks back out of storage and try it again.

There's a Lenovo i3 sitting here with onboard video that runs the game great, even two clients at a time.

We just dropped a bank and a cantina today in the city. It would be great to see you there.

An update for those thinking of joining:

We've added our shuttleport for the city
Added 5 new players to the PA, with more coming over from a guild we have an alliance with (we did on Chilastra too. They were the WOOKS, and are now FISH. Their non-Mon Cal alts are joining us).

And... we have added a UK player to the fold! :)

Just got back from the 3 week vacay at my dads place.

Gonna dig up the SWG discs and get in as soon as possible.

Questions.

Any form of VOip we use?
And...

I know it is Pre-CU, but is JtLS a thing they consider?

JTL is not finished yet, so no.

The server offers a TS server we can use if needed. If enough people start playing and we find we could really benefit from one, I'll rent one from a hosted service.

Shoot me a tell or msg when you're in game, and we'll look forward to seeing you!

The PA and the city have been growing! We're going to be doing some guild Geo cave runs this Saturday.

We'd love to see you guys visit!

Sorry, I haven't been able to be online much the past couple of days. I'm usually on as Baylor, Tetran, or Malu.

Dartak and Darant (Dais) are on often, as well as Rhyno'. I look forward to seeing you!

Ok I'll look for them too. I'm always on during my days off, and sometimes I can connect when I'm on the road.

Not sure if I'll be able to join up with you, but I have been playing recently on the "Basilisk" server that swgemu put up. The game seems pretty decent on their server. I was able to grind out Master Marksman and Artisan, and have been playing with my 13 year old son. He always wanted to play since he saw the disks a few years ago. I'd love if they got JTL working as I never really got to fly in space.
