Rumeurs - Star Wars Galaxies

Le moulin a rumeur est de retour !! Un "ex-employé" de SOE/LEC à vidé son sac sur mmorpg.com.

First of all, let me introduce myself.

I was employed for the last 4 years by Sony Onlline Entertainment (SOE) and Lucasarts Entertainment Company (LEC) as a body coder for the MMO commonly known as StarWars Galaxies: An Empire Divided.

I will not give out my personal details due to recursive legal action that the above two corporations may take against me for writhing this post to you today. ( hence the false email i am using and name to make this thread)

Recently, Major changes have been made within this MMO that have sparked outrage and mass cancellations. However i bring news to you of some facts.

First of all, there have been rumors abound about the current subscriber base in the game. Upon myself leaving the company 1 week ago, the current subscriber base with active accounts was slightly over 175,000 subscribers. 32,000 of them being trial accounts.

Now comes the part that may or may not have legal issues for me.

There have been massive calls for a reversion of the current system to be changed to the original base system that was at launch. SOE have acknowledged this and explained the situation to LEC and projected the estimated subscriber base and revenue that would be generated if this did indeed happen.

However, LEC have basically ignored this request from SOE and informed them, that as their joint license and contract states, the game known as StarWars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, must be produced and developed according to the wishes of the license granter (LEC)

Recently though, there have been further developments on this front, and SOE have made some ground on attempting to produce a original system that includes all the current mini-publishes and major publishes.

For evidence of this, you can refer to the lead developers publish plan. This is to last 6 months approx.

The reason that there is no publish plan further ahead of this ( unlike during the previous combat systems) is that IF the current system on the live servers is not to the playerbases liking, a original base system will be made live. Evidence of this can be found by the upcoming house and structures purge on the servers. this is to make way for condensed server merges, with the remainder being "cleaned" and prepared for the new system.

Take the above information as you will.

Now on to a well known Emulator site regarding the above game.

Many of you have posted and replied to that site. SOE and LEC indeed know about this site, and are actively monitoring it.

I have read the updates section and i feel i must say something.

The main updates that the administrators have given to you are false. Here are my reasons for you to browse.

The most recent updates that have been made available there are incorrect.

The loading screen you see can easily be made and changed by anyone who has access to the .tre file that was included in the Jump to Lightspeed (JTL) major publish. All it is is a simple background that you can extract from the .tre file using a program known as insideSWG or SWGExplorer. You can then import it into a image editing program, edit it how you like, then recompile it back into the.tre file. Evidence of this is a lack of a full video going from login screen to main game on the Emulator site. All you see is a screenshot.

With reference to the "ingame zone" screenshots. these are again false. There is indeed a mod that replicates all aspects of the games original system User Interface. However if you look closely you will notice that there are no active "HAM" bars. this is because the code which we inserted into the core of the game is made to do this, thus making the mod useless and basically unuseable. You may also notice the small unobtainable experience information module in one of the screenshots This is a well known bug that occurs with an original system User interface Mod. This occurs because the mod links to coding within the client that has been commented out. therefore it was not able to be changed.

Well, take the above post however you see fit. My only purpose today was to update you on the game and future developments that SOE and LEC are desperate to keep hidden. Some of you may think that this post was made by a teenager with not much else to do. However i assure you in all honesty, that i was empoyed as stated above
