General / Re: What were SWBF1 servers like?

I never got a chance to play SWBF1 multiplayer until the steam update released, what were the servers like? Did they get more players? Were there more servers? I'd love to here what you veterans have to say.  :)

When I started in 2011 there were probably 50 servers and 120-150 players at peak UK time and that was down to 80 in 2014. There would usually be 20-30 in  PLA cloudcity server and similar in one of the European all map servers like ententeich, cupbears server or pic arena with the rest spread out.

The servers were all stable then as well, more than most modern games, so you could play for an evening without worrying. With hindsight my 30+ hours a week for a while was probably a bit much but I regret nothing. ;)

Question mark was one of the good snipers I remember but there was a few really good players including sovereign. ;)

In cloud city at least I could usually top the leaderboard but every time I thought I was good a proper player would come along and beat me with a tenth of the deaths.

(PLA) devil is another one I remember, he would always be a pilot and run round healing both sides.

And a random one is the German (?) godz unit stevt who no matter how many warnings and bans he got only knew one phrase: 'we are  :censored: like  :censored:' which for some reason made me laugh.

Drugrep had a unique way of talking to. ;)

Welcome to the site. If you mean the official game update there's currently 8 servers with 7 players in one. It tends to get busier in the evenings.

The patch hosted here doesn't get as many players now that official multiplayer is restored but some still use it because it's ironically a lot more stable than the official one

Welcome back, there's normally a few players online.

There's a few of us still around from the old days as well you would have played with but you have to use your steam name so it's awkward to know who's who.

Hey there guys!


Today I joined the 21st clan guys for some rounds in the european server. We crashed a couple of times, so I tested some stuff and found out that we crashed after I typed in the teamchat.

This means that typing through it will cause a crash, so in order to avoid it, we have set up a "private" server so that those who join avoid crashing it (we'll try to let know everyone about it so that they can join us there).

Was that a dedicated server? Someone used team chat and I replied to double check in a player hosted server just now.

Interesting.  So I bought the game on a second account as well so that I could play and host at the same time.  Are you logged into Steam when you do this?  I am running it off my VPS, with the batch file in the same folder as Battlefront.exe, and Steam is running and logged in to the account I bought it on.  I tried doing it multiple ways in offline mode and trying to run it on both machines, and it just didn't work.

If that doesn't help, I can take some screenshots and give insight to my setup.

I couldn't get it to work either, I'm wondering how it checks and whether you can change the folder location for one to trick it.

The server worked well when I played earlier with a couple of others. Unfortunately after 2 matches I was booted and that started a 10minute cycle of crashing and freezing. It's lucky I like this game...

I also found out you can't play on Steam and GOG at the same time, it just puts you straight into the one that's running.

If anyone can get a hold of them, I would like to talk to them.
No seriously, if anyone can, maybe we can make this better for everyone.  I said previously I thought they were using the source, but seeing it, I am pretty sure they aren't now, which means they are mucking with an unstable exe to inject stuff.  I'd hate to see this game get more negative publicity than it did the first time, with unusable options and such.

They are pretty good at answering on Facebook but when I tried before they just said I should post in the forum's. If we're lucky they might still have an active team on it at the moment.

I appreciate what they've done but it's seriously unstable, especially considering swbfspy fixed everything and worked.

Just had a game on Eddie's Italia with Goldman and it all worked fine although Norwood couldn't get in. It looks like the 1.3 patch so no 20 mod map limit which is a bonus.

Update: It's great fun but a lot of glitches in the browser. The refresh button is a 50/50 chance of freezing.

They've also put the beeps back on the multiplayer maps loading if that makes sense.

You have to use your steam name, your profile name makes no difference.

SWBF1 Modding / Re: new update breaks mod map compatibility

I just started a random map (deathstar) and it worked.

Hopefully we see a wave of new players again. They've updated a few settings and I had one crash but it all works for me.

I think it must have just happened because there's just been the first news article.

Hi Led, Where can we throw a few buck to help support? Thanks for holding it down -matt25

You can put something towards the server hosting in the link here if you would like. :cheers:

guys i'm making an absurd confusion, can you explain me step by step? :'(

Which bit are you having problems with? Is it battlefront 1 on Steam you're trying?
