I've been involved with the EAW modding community since June 2006 and ModDB since 2009. My background is in computer science and mathematics. I was drawn to the modding community due to its high level of energy and global impact on the gaming scene. We hope you guys are enjoying Republic at War and are looking forward to the upcoming additions that we will be releasing in the coming months.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse InstaChit - Free, Anonymous Voice Chat

0 comments by KillerHurdz on Sep 18th, 2013

I've been working on a side project for the past while and we're moving it into beta as of today.

InstaChit.com allows for secure, anonymous voice chat between multiple people without the need to install any plugins or sign-up for the service.

We think this service will be useful for gamers who'd like to get a quick & disposable call going with their teammates.

Check out what we've done and tell us what you think.

Report abuse RaW Game Launcher Download Link

0 comments by KillerHurdz on Jun 30th, 2013

For any RaW users that downloaded the RaW v1.1.5 Minimal Package and want the launcher, you can grab it here (link below).

You will have to place it into your Forces of Corruption directory for it to work. You can then create a desktop shortcut to it if you'd like. It won't use the game icon when playing because that is part of what the auto-installer accomplishes.

Examples Forces of Corruption directories:

Disk Users: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Lucasarts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\'
Steam Users: 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars Empire at War\corruption\'

Report abuse RaW Game Launcher

The RaW v1.1.5 game launcher now allows players to completely clean all of their game's XML folders (both root and mod). Players can now revert any changes made to the XML files without having to reinstall. This is something that has been requested for a while now and although it adds some additional bulk to the app's file size, we feel it is worth it.

This functionality is available through the "Clean" tab.

Report abuse FoC Game Cleaner & Synchronizer

0 comments by KillerHurdz on May 5th, 2013

The FoC Game Cleaner application is now available on ModDB.

This (much awaited) application allows players to sync up their games to allow play between disc and Steam games. The application also allows users to remove any modified game content that will break online compatibility.

It was developed by myself and will continue to be maintained, as necessary. It will continue to serve as an interim solution until an official patch is released by Petroglyph.

Enjoy!

Report abuse Big Upcoming Announcement

0 comments by KillerHurdz on Dec 25th, 2012

2013 will be a big year for the Empire at War community and, to start things off, I wanted to announce something big that will affect the entire community (including those who enjoy the vanilla experience).

I'll be announcing a research breakthrough as well as an accompanying software application that will end up having a very substantial impact on the way users play online together.

The announcement will be displayed on the Republic at War news section, on January 1st.

Cheers.

Report abuse Republic at War Game Organizer

2 comments by KillerHurdz on Jan 17th, 2012

The Republic at War Game Organizer is a community driven service that enables players to coordinate and schedule multiplayer sessions easily and effectively.

I have made the current work-in-progress build available, early, as we'd like to have a few of you test it out.

Some features include:

- Date/Time/Details/Region fields to communicate the specifics of each scheduled session
- Profanity filter
- Useful error messages
- Suggestion box

We'll be really pushing this once 1.2 hits but we want to be sure that it works well before making a full endorsement.

Try it HERE.

Report abuse Personal RaW Status Update

1 comment by KillerHurdz on Dec 12th, 2011

For those of you who like numbers, here's an idea of what we've done so far:

- Over 500 balance adjustments (fully tested)
- 2.1MB worth of NEW code
- 12 new buildable units (more to come)
- 2 new indigenous species (1 more to come)
- 2 new planets (1 more to come) 
- 1.3GB worth of NEW art content (models, skins, etc)

We have about 20% more to go before we're done.

In addition to this, we'll have:

- A revised manual (cleaned up, updated and cleared of any errors)
- A new "RAW Assistant" application (included with 1.2) that combines the following:

  • An easy to use, effective, uninstaller
  • A version "checker" to allow players to (easily) find and resolve compatibility issues for multiplayer.  It can also detect if Republic at War is correctly installed
  • An integrated updater (fully patched with the most recent Petroglyph August update)
  • Maybe more, depending on time constraints

- A full (easy to use) auto-installer

The bug list can be found here, for those of you interested.

We're looking at a Q1 2012 release.  I'll see if we can get more frequent "news" updates out as the main page has been pretty quiet during these last 5 months.

Report abuse Republic at War Uninstaller

Here is our *official* uninstaller for Republic at War v1.1.  It will be included with the upcoming expansion installation package.

I've made it available, early, as the current uninstaller is a bit of a pain.

If there are any issues, feel free to comment.

Report abuse GC Performance Fix

2 comments by KillerHurdz on Jul 10th, 2011

This will help those of you who were experiencing severe performance issues and DID meet the minimum system requirements.  We're not making this an official game file until we've thoroughly tested it.  This fix will be included in Republic at War v1.2.  There is also no guarantee that it will work for everyone.  As of this writing, we have seen only positive results.

I've made it available here for those of you who don't want to wait until the official release.

A readme is included.
