TALON_UK @ Obi-Wan Kenobi Sideshow

I have that issue of the Insider too, I thought it was named in the article? They probably won't have it in their catalogue for a while yet, I got the impression this wasn't going to be coming out till near the end of the year, though I could be wrong. Interestingly it looks like there will be two versions, one with an older looking Ewan McGregor portrait and one with a younger looking Alec Guinness likeness. Looks like either will be a great addition to anyone's Star Wars collection.

(Just checked and they mention the piece as Obi-Wan as Tatooine Desert Nomad, no idea if that will be the final name for the statue)

If you're not interested in co-op don't worry, the co-op server also has conquest maps, basically there is a mix on this server so when people are waiting for reasonable numbers to join they have something to keep them occupied, then switch to the conquest maps.

Around 8pm GMT is a good time to check the servers for high populations on Saturday and Sunday nights, though you'll find people on occasionally on week nights at this time too.

TALON_UK @ New First Strike Model (not available in the shops)

Hi Admiral_Skeybar, this is not my work, but that of a fan of the Freerunner design variant used in the mod who asked me to send my files over to him (as mentioned in the above blog) so he could get the design Rapid Prototyped which is basically 3D printing.

He is now going through the process of sanding down the model and applying a primer to make it ready for painting.

Excellent news, good to hear that Desura is ever expanding and going from strength to strength. Nice one.

Hmmm, not sure what your problem is there then, best bet is to head over to our forums and check out the client support forums:

Forums.fsmod.com

...to see if anything sounds like your problem over there, if not, post up a new thread with what your issues are, details of your PC spec etc, and someone can try and help you out.

Thanks for your kind words regarding the mod, we'll have more space maps in development soon, but are currently focusing on the Battle of Hoth.

If you have already updated to the 1.51 version of BF2142 First Strike will not work with that until we release an update for it later in the week.

You need to currently have BF2142 1.5 to work with First Strike.

That will be done at the end of the week once the server side version has been fully integrated and we release a new build which has been fully tested and is compatible with BF2142 1.51. Then all the benefits of the new version of BF2142, including the lack of need for the cd check will carry over to our mod too.

Bobbing on for a bit to get the server warmed up, will be on myself only for a short while for tonight, but will be about longer tomorrow. See you out there.

Basically it'll replace the standard Imperial Officer mesh on Hoth.

Yeah, that is something we should definitely look at fixing, had my eyebrows singed in there a few times myself.

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.

That would be the larger sizes of Null Sensor Station, in the forests and plains beneath the Mesa the Imperial installation is built on.

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.

Heh, now that's funny, I've even been there (Dublin Trinity College Library, not the Jedi Temple Library ;P ), but never made the connection until now. It is pretty much identical.

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.
