SWTOR: Technical features coming in 5.10.2

Here are some of the ” under the hodd” canges Bioware is planing to add with game Patch 5.10.2. Under the Hood with SWTOR Today we want to pull back the curtain about the development process a bit, in order to talk about two feature updates that our engineers have been feverishly working on – better dynamic placeable objects and a more robust Preview Window. Both will be included with Game Update 5.10.2 ‘Heralds of Victory’. To really explain the breadth of this update, we’re going to try something a little different from what we normally do and go deeper into the tech-side of our explanations. With that, let’s dive in! Dynamic Placeable Objects (DYNs) First off, let’s talk about what DYNs are. DYNs are objects that designers place in the world that can change or be changed, based on how they’re set up. Nearly everything you interact with in-game is based…

Why You Should Try SWGEmu!

Are you still on the fence about trying SWGEmu? Why? We’ve written here on the site before about why SWG is very much worth your time, and SWGEmu makes it easy and accessible for you to play the game.

If you’re a returning Star Wars Galaxies fan who longs for the “good ol days”, or a new player who never had the change to experience it in its original glory, SWGEmu gives you that chance.

SWTOR: Game Update 5.10.2 ‘Heralds of Victory’ Is Coming!

Yesterday the devs over at Bioware Austine announced that Patch 5.10.2, named Heralds of Victory will be landing in April and feature guild heraldry and preview window changes. When Game Update 5.10 ‘Jedi Under Siege’ launched, guilds received a boost in the form of new guild leveling and PvP challenge systems, as well as new management tools. Seeing guilds flourish from this, with Game Update 5.10.2 ‘Heralds of Victory’, we are planning to add even more for guilds! This new feature is called Guild Heraldry and it will be another tool for guilds to rally behind! Each guild can create their own emblem to represent them throughout the game. Between the combination of icons, background details, and variety of colors, guilds will be able to create something truly unique. A guild’s emblem will be displayed in the general guild window, on the conquest planetary leaderboards, and many other places! On…

Star Wars Games: Top 5 Honourable Mentions

Star Wars games are like a fine wine – they only age better with time. But to be fair, the saga had its ups and downs throughout almost three decades of existence on the gaming market. Back in the mid-1990s and ‘00s, there have been more than two dozen Star Wars universe-themed games released explicitly for PC, and frankly, not every release fulfilled the developer expectations. Just like the movies, some games are remembered much more fondly than others. There’s even this common saying about the whole deal – for every beloved Star Wars game, there’s half-dozen of the ‘ehh’ ones. But today is not about the dark side of the Star Wars games industry. Today’s all about those all-time classics, amongst which, there’s even a game that, by some fans, is considered as being better than the entire film saga! Is the force still strong with such a bold…
