If you haven't already noticed (and I really hope you noticed), SWBFgamers has undergone a drastic overhaul.  There's a message on the front page but a forum post seemed appropriate as well.

This was caused by an upgrade to SMF to the newest release candidate.  There are still minor issues that are being resolved, but I have restored most of the old functionality and packages with updated versions.  We have been having random issues since we moved hosts, so we went the full upgrade route and it seems to have resolved many of the issues we have been having with the database (and other areas as well).  This is not the final look for the website, it's just the first theme I found that doesn't burn my eyes out and it doesn't look like the old themes are going to work.

If you notice any issues, please let us know here.  Otherwise, bear with us as we add back in the custom SWBFgamers flair that we've all come to know and love.

I come here to play a 16 year old game, preferably Cloudcity, for the 1000th time. You can't scare me with change like this!  ;)

Seriously though, thanks for keeping everything working, as soon as I work out how to get a white background I'll be happy, and everything seems to work for me.
I play less now but I'll always be around, lets keep this site and battlefront going. :)

I came back here after a long time and saw the UI different, I had to check if I came to the right site because it hit me... "Wait. This isn't how it looked the last time I came here!"

Might take a while to get used to it haha

Just to keep everyone up to date..dark_phantom can attest that I have been working in the background to establish a test forum that can be used to debug a new theme (or re-create the old one).

Thanks for your patience and we will get the place spiffy in a bit.   :cheers:

I can attest that Led has gotten no sleep while bouncing questions and ideas off of me while slaving away over setting up a test forum.

I want the games forum back though :(

I have assigned dark_phantom the job of coming up with a replacement for Adobe Flash so we can all play Pacman again  ;)

Give me a bell if you're looking for a new banner!

Ah! I knew something was missing here and it was the theme! I hope you can figure out how to get it working!

Good luck!
