First Strike is a Star Wars total conversion modification for Battlefield 2142. The goal of First Strike is to totally immerse the players into the amazing universe of Star Wars by presenting the most accurate representations of famous Star Wars locales, weapons, and characters, and combining them with exciting, fast paced gameplay and features new to the Battlefield scene. Within this mod you'll find yourself as a soldier of the Galactic Empire or as a freedom fighter for the Rebel Alliance. You'll fight across lovingly detailed recreations of various Star Wars locations with a wide array of weapons and vehicles.

With the Rebel Alliance growing stronger every day and the Empire spread thin as it is, it's no longer a battle of technological might, but simply a matter of who strikes first...

Features include:

  • Famous Star Wars battles
  • An extremely authentic atmosphere
  • Dozens of Star Wars weapons, vehicles, and soldiers
  • Space battles!
  • Online multiplayer for up to 64 people
  • Co-op & Singleplayer Bot support on a growing number of maps
  • Persistent stat tracking

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: EA Master Server Finally Down

3 comments by TALON_UK on Jul 18th, 2014


Well we have now come to the end of an era. The EA Master Server has finally gone down, and with that the login service which records your rank, and keeps track of your unlocks for your customisable kits. Without being able to log in to the server you are unable to play the game on-line, even the local or singleplayer version of our mod will not run due to this issue. However singleplayer is available if you disconnect from the internet.

We are looking at ways to get around this. Some of our fellow Battlefield mods have already fielded solutions to the problem of the server going down which allow their games to be played, and we'll be looking at possible solutions too. We are currently working with GameRanger, a facility which bypasses the need to log on to the Master Server to play the game. They already support many Battlefield games including BF2142, and it may very well be possible that you'll be able to play First Strike via this system. As yet no solution appears to be available for the lack of kit customisation options. However, the way First Strike deals with kits means that only the kit primary weapon is effected, all other gadgets are still available, which is a plus we have over BF2142 itself which finds its kit options severely hampered by the lack of the customisation functionality. Still hopefully this will also be restored soon so both BF2142 and First Strike can become fully functional again.

As of now First Strike is off-line only with no multiplayer options available at this time. But rest assured we'll keep you informed of developments as they happen, and we hope to be back up and running again soon.

Until then

See you on the Battlefield Troopers!

Apologies, unfortunately computers are fickle things, with so many variables depending on software and hardware issues it is almost impossible to counter all of the problems even for commercial games developers. I have never heard of an issue similar to the one you are describing here, though there is an issue with shaders that sometimes renders BF 2142 unplayable without a fix, but I believe this issue has already been rectified. Your best bet is to head here:

There is a comprehensive client support forum here, if you can't find the issue you have or anything similar post a new thread and someone will respond and try and help you sort it out.

Also be aware that for some issues do arise, but usually we can find a fix or workaround, also people for the most part don't have a problem installing First Strike, the Launcher system is an attempt to make the whole process easier for the end user making it a one button click affair, though sometimes for the reasons stated above you occasionally get glitches or bugs.

I hope we are able to solve your problem for you, and once again apologies for the problems you are having. Sometimes these things just can't be helped.

We'll release the Hoth map all in good time. It is a massive undertaking that is inching ever closer to completion even as we speak. Watch this space.

Yes, the latest version of the full mod has bot support on the Battle of Yavin map, so you have bots controling heavy numbers of starfighters etc. There is no bot support as yet in the full mod for ground maps.

But there is a mini mod with bot support for most maps, which can be downloaded here:

Check out the latest additions to First Strike automatically via the launcher, Battle of Yavin has just become the first map in the mod proper to receive bot support. So get on line now and experience dogfights above the endless surface of the Death Star with a starlit sky thick with Rebel and Imperial starfighters.

You know you want to.
