For anyone who hasn't got the latest battlefront game it will be free on Epic games store from the 14th for a week. There's no catches with their free games, you just need the launcher installed and you should see battlefront 2. You can download any time after you add it to your account.

General / Happy new year
December 31, 2019, 04:16:36 PM
Happy new year everyone, hope you all have a good one. I don't think any of us expected to still be playing battlefront for another decade.  :cheers:

Would it be possible to edit Sleepkillers autoinstaller for steam users? It would make things a lot simpler and in theory everyone with a newish pc should have battlefront in the same location now.

Battlefront 2 is 75% off on origin today. I've finally given in at that price.  :)

Has anyone got this working with battlefront? I can't get it to show up in game in any mode (always recording or manual). It's the latest version I've got.

Star Wars Battlefront: EA Reboots 1 and 2 / Loot boxes
November 04, 2017, 03:25:20 AM
Just seen that EA are going to limit loot boxes a bit after all the complaints by taking out the best weapons. Hopefully this means the games a bit more balanced for players who don't pay extra.

I'm not sure how others here feel about loot boxes but personally I hate them, I think if they want to sell extras it should only be things like different skins/cosmetic changes and not random either.

On the plus side the DLC is free now and to be honest the game looks alright and says star wars on it so I'll be getting at some point. ;)

SWBFdays are back! If you want to play in big games again without the effort of official tournaments simply make an effort to play on the last Saturday of every month.

There's no special rules, this is just a way to get us all playing together again. Most people will start at 1EST/6GMT but it doesn't matter when you join as players will be around all day depending on their timezone.

Please spread the word to all players active and inactive. There's still hundreds of players of battlefront and with a bit of luck and effort we can busy servers again.  :tu:

I'm going to get a new pc soon and with out a lot of effort I can't get windows 7 anymore so for anyone using Windows 10 now - how bad is it? :)

I've actually heard it's getting better, with a proper desktop now, but does anyone have issues with running old software on it? I've got a lot of specialist stuff and old games that I don't want to lose.

Other Games / Pony island
January 01, 2017, 09:46:55 AM
If anyone wants a change from the usual games this year pony island is only £1.31/about $2 on steam. I can't say much about it without giving away spoilers but it's a very unique puzzle /platform game.

Only downside is it might cause an awkward steam conversation. ;)

General / Best ever...
May 02, 2016, 04:18:29 AM
It's been a while since I saw a random general thread here so I thought I would fix that. What do you think is the best film, game, car etc ever made. Try and put some random categories in to make this interesting. :)

Film - Rumble in the Bronx
TV series - Scrubs
Quad Bike - Polaris Scrambler 1000
Song - Bohemian Rhapsody
Food - takeaway chicken fried rice and sweet and sour chicken balls

There's just been some details about upcoming free DLC leaked. The interesting bits are;
New Tatooine map
New costumes for Luke and Leia
Daily challenges
Private matches

The private matches should at least allow some tournaments to happen and get togethers for clans should be easier depending how it works.

Since it's been confirmed that there will be no server browser (which is my biggest problem with the game) I was wondering what clans were planning to do in the new game? And I'm assuming that tournaments are a no go....

Does anyone know if when you join a group you can all join the same server regardless of level? At least that way clans can still exist.

General / Twilight Company preview.
October 18, 2015, 05:07:21 AM
A preview of the novel based on the new game:

The battle of Hoth: 3ABY*
It's another cold day on Hoth, the wind howls through the corridors of Echo base and the snow has become so bad that even the Tauntauns won't venture out but for the struggling rebellion the day is only getting worse...

Chapter 1
Following the sighting of Imperial troops the 5 elite soldiers of twilight company begin deployment on the battlefield. Their target is an antenna or uplink of some sort that they must activate . As one the squad jumps from the dropship towards the target, with years of training for missions like these they all land within mere kilometeres of each other and begin running blindly around in the general direction of the target.

The first to arrive is combat veteran Vash. "Nice looking rocks here", he remarks on the squads radio. "Don't get distracted" came the reply. Unfortunately it was too late, while Vash ran around looking at his footprints in the snow an Imperial armed with a pistol shot him in the back from across the battlefield. Vash's cloth armour provided little protection and he died from a single hit.

The remainder of the squad met up by the relay thing. Their heavy weapons specialist, Tromp Grooble took watch with his small pistol while the other 3 worked out how to activate the relay. Eventually they realised it was a single button, a poor design given that the Imperials could deactivate it the same way.

The squad stood in a line facing the oncoming Imperial forces to guard the relay thing, at the sight of an AT-AT in the distance they blindly opened fire, glad of unlimited ammunition and the bags  full of grenades they carried with them.  Try as they might, however, their shots barely scratched the AT-AT. Luckily just as it got within firing range it randomly veered off to the left to follow a different path. The squad breathed a sigh of relief.

"That was too close", Grooble started to stay before suddenly a lone stormtrooper appeared behind him and shot him with a pistol. Grooble tried to dive sideways but his legs wouldn't let him, desperately he tried to roll into a nearby trench but that to failed for some reason, instead he crouched down and hoped for the best. He died.
Twilight company was now down to 3 men; Jens, Ulrich and Hantonar. They opened fire on the stormtrooper to avenge their fallen friend but just as Jens fired the final shot the stormtrooper was killed by a stray shot from a pistol on the other side of the battlefield. Unfortunately In all the firing they had failed to notice that Ulrich had been mortally wounded, he lay there, every part of his body in agony. A red cloud filled his vision and knew there was no way he could survive this. Then, miraculously he got better.

Now fed up of running around and dying through chance the three of them went to take the fight to the imperials. After a brief run and Ulrich, their sniper, defeating Darth Vader with his pistol rifle they arrived at the hangar to get in a snow speeder. Hantonar, their tech specialist, tried to get into the ship but for some reason he couldn't. He tried everything from jumping on it, crawling under it and shooting at it with his tech pistol but nothing worked. "Unless there's a portal into on the other side of the battle, I can't see us getting in", said Ulrich sarcastically.

Just as they were about to give up hope of surviving this nightmare of a battle a passing Rebel soldier called them into a transport ship and they were evacuated with the other rebels. Although at first they didn't want to leave the battle they knew that they could fight this battle another 10 times and still have no chance of winning so chose to take the transport and live to fight another day.

Star Wars Battlefront: EA Reboots 1 and 2 / Season pass
October 13, 2015, 10:11:27 AM
If you want to get all the DLC for Battlefront it will cost £40 or $50 (US). It's supposedly 4 packs worth and if you get the pass rather than buying them separately you can play them early.

Personally I'll be waiting to see what the main game is like but I hope you get a decent amount of DLC for what is basically the price of the game again.
