Freelance 3D modeller and games artist. Commenced my games industry career over 10 years ago, starting out at Warthog on the sci-fi FPS Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter, and a space shooter of Battlestar Galactica. Most recently worked in house for Sumo Digital on a Tennis release for Sega, Virtua Tennis 2009 for PS3, Xbox 360 & the Wii, and I also worked on Sonic & Sega All-Star Racing. I have recently begun to teach 3D modelling and how that relates to games at several educational institutions including the University of Bolton on a part-time basis. Mod work includes development team leader, lore advice and modelling work for the Battlefield 2142 Star Wars themed mod First Strike.

Nope, just BF2142, look through our old news to find the installation instruction article which deals with most issues people may run into when installing, and lets you know which version of BF2142 you need etc.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the mod The_Darker_Side, I'm afraid it is pretty unlikely we'll be delving into the world of the Clone Wars however, we've still barely scratched the surface of the worlds and situations and battles of the Galactic Civil War yet. I think we pretty much have a full dance card with the original trilogy.

Love it, much more so than the Family Guy Star Wars stuff which I've found quite disapointing since the 1st, though the latest one was at least a bit better than Something, something, Dark Side.

Haven't seen the 3rd SW Robot Chicken yet, looking forward.

Yeah, it is an issue with the site unfortunately, we've tracked down the problem so it shouldn't happen again. Also we've just released an update of the mod itself which removes the mods dependency on the website being up for the launcher to run, so from now on whether the website is up or down the mod should launch successfully.


Apologies for the downtime.


Welcome back Memnoch, been a while.

Can't really say without more information, I presume BF2142 works okay? I also assume you're trying to run First Strike through the launcher?

This installation guide deals with most problems people have when installing First Strike.

If you look at all the issues raised here and still can't resolve your problem head over to the First Strike Client Support forums and someone will try and help you there.

Good luck.

Yeah, I think the pivot points must have been screwed up in that shot or something, can't believe I never noticed it before. Not to worry, it is all correct on the in game version.

That would be a Virella Systems Cargo Tanker, they were quite common in the old X-Wing and X-Wing vs TIE Fighter PC games along with the Bulk Freighter that is featured in some of our other maps.

Hi Sergiovi, no we don't do our own figures, as I mentioned above this was just a Photoshop prank, but if you like building your own miniatures you should probably check this out. Might interest you:

Impressive, most impressive.

Heh, love the work he has done on the Star Destroyer designs, but his take on EU Imperial Starfighters really takes the biscuit, the Gunboat is one of my fave EU ships in need of a 21st century makeover and his vision for that craft is spot on, as are his depictions of the TIE Defender and Scimitar Bomber (another of my EU faves), really excellent work.

Aye, just a Photoshop gag peeps, saw the new Sandtrooper in the shops and noticed that it was the first version to include the MG-15 blaster rifle which we use in the mod, it is rarely seen elsewhere, though recently there has been I think it was a Gentle Giant, Artefex or Sideshow Sandtrooper statue that also included the weapon. Also more recently as it has gained more recognition it has finally been given an official name (we called it an MG-15 based on it's real world weapon the blaster is based on as it had no Star Wars name at the time), the RT-97C.

I like to think that it's high profile role in our mod helped raise awareness of this particular weapon and got it a bit more love all round.

Anyhow as I said, saw it in a store and saw pure comedy gold in the making.
