Welcome to the Old Star Wars discussion thread! Any older Star Wars games are welcome here! Feel free to discuss them, share gameplay (so long as your vids aren't monetized and are for informational purposes, not advertising for you channel), any great mods you've found, etc. Newer games like TOR and EA's Battlefront and Battlefront II are okay as well, since they continue the legacy of the classics. For reference, old games are ones from the late 90's to the early 2000s. Let's revive the classics!

 

Discord server: https://discord.gg/Ppz9AD4

 

And now a list of awesome mods and such, the best sites are ModDB and NexusMods:

 

     Battlefront II:

Content mods:

Battlefront III legacy Beta 4.0, updated and better than ever: http://www.moddb.com/mods/star-wars-battlefront-iii-legacy/downloads/battlefront-iii-legacy-open-beta-4

 

GCW 1035 (Pure awesomeness, EA's Battlefront style skins and blasters. DLT-19s are sick!): http://www.moddb.com/mods/gcw-1035/downloads/gcw-1035

 

Republic Commando (moar awesomeness): http://www.moddb.com/mods/star-wars-battlefront-republic-commando/downloads/swbfii-rcm-v14

 

TOR remastered: http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-old-republic-remastered/downloads/the-old-republic-remastered-v1

 

Rebel Ops missions (stellar mission spy thingy, you run the Maps in “Hunt” mode. There’s three of them., Auqualaris, The Big L, and some other one): http://www.moddb.com/mods/rebel-ops-campaign/downloads/rebel-ops-campaign-installer

 

Utilites: 

 

And PM me or contact me on discord if you need help installing them. Though they include readmes, so you should be able to figure it out from those. 

If you have any good mods you know of for any older Star Wars games, give me the link and I'll put it up here.     

 

     Gameplay videos: 

Spoiler

Here's my YouTube channel (disclaimer for the mods, this is not monetized in any way, it's purely to show off and teach people about the awesomeness of Battlefront II. If any of the vids have ads on them, tell me and I'll check my settings. I hate ads, and have a good income, so there's no point in monetizing any videos): https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClZLuxUxenX9SnEYWp4E6tA

 

So far, just one quick edit, and I'm waiting for it to change my profile pic (says it could take a couple hours). 

 

     Old intro:

Spoiler

Just wondering, does anyone else still play the old Battlefront II? It'd be cool to find some peeps to play with and maybe make some mods. 

 

EDIT: With the help of @LooneyJuice, this is now a discussion thread for any classic early 2000s Star Wars Games. Fell free to discuss them below, and if you know any good mods, make sure and tell me (especially for Battlefront II).

You have to use GameRanger and set it to LAN. Then GameRanger catches the LAN signal and puts it on its servers, or something like that. It's still an awesome game, especially if you use mods.

The PC version is awesome, supports mods, and it's only $10 (you can find it for $2.50 on sale).

Yup. I feel your pain, since my car recently had problems (brakes, fixed those, they started smoking, fixed them again, then my radiator broke, and fingers crossed something else doesn't go wrong), so I'm not in a good financial position right now either. Thankfully I got the new parts for my PC before that happened.

Noice! It's the same thing I'm doing, with my 980 Ti and hopefully a good Ryzen setup. Though make sure you go to a Subway with a good manager. My sister in law used to work at one, and her manager and coworkers were terrible.

Yup. Miners most likely, or some other desperate gamer who's been waiting for weeks.

That'd defo be cool. I wonder if there's a way to up the textures on BF2 and play it at 4K?

Yeah but if you try hard enough you'll find one just like Droja my build took over 3 months to make it (nearing 4 because of a RMA)

Yup. Though I've used HarrisonFog's mods and the Evolved mod, and they look really nice. For it's age, Battlefront II can pump out some amazing graphics.

You have to use GameRanger and set it to LAN. Then GameRanger catches the LAN signal and puts it on its servers, or something like that. It's still an awesome game, especially if you use mods. 

For Star Wars galactic battlegrounds saga I've heard people use Tunngle; a free "Internet LAN" where it tricks the game into thinking the tunngle server is a LAN server so you can play on the internet. 

 

Edit: 

i played the campaign this year on PC but the colors were all... super yellow red or black on Pc and idk why. I just switched to Linux so I'd have to find a workaround to play it. Or use the 32 bit windows 7 pc.

GameRanger basically does that, it acts like a LAN server. 

 

And strabge that the colours are like that. They're fine for me, especially since I run various graphics mods. 


Maxwell is still awesome, and so is X58. If you wanna discuss the X58 platform and get tips and advice: General X58 Xeon/i7 discussion. If you want to discuss old Star Wars games like Battlefront II and KOTOR, check out my thread: Anyone still playing old Star Wars games? 

 

Long live his RGBness, @Damascus! And Fractal Design/SeaSonic dude, @Ordinarily_Greater is awesome as well! Also the man who introduced me to the glorious XCMR, @WhisperingKnickers.

Hmmmm. Even plain on my Win 10 64bit PC is fine. Could your monitor have done something weird? And which maps did you play?
