Beta Version 4 Release

Our goal is to create an accurate and fun space combat experience from the Original Star Wars Trilogy. We have analyzed all the original space battles and, to the best of our abilities, we have attempted to capture the same combat style and overall atmosphere from the films. Just like the movies, ships have high velocities, a focus on primary weapons, and encounters are deadly and only survived by those with experience, teamwork, and some skillful use of the force...

We chose to use the powerful and actively maintained Freespace 2 Open engine. It provides an engine that is easy for almost any machine to run while at the same time allowing for high quality visual effects, smart AI, and massive battles. The engine is constantly being updated and worked on, and provides very effective modding capabilities along with excellent mission/campaign creation tools.


Multiplayer missions including co-op, team vs team and all out dogfights.

Custom AI profiles have been created and specifically designed to be smart,
deadly, realistic, and highly focused on the Star Wars style combat.
Also, each type of craft has its own custom AI set, which specifically plays on
the strengths of that craft.

Warfull's beautifully created Star Wars ship models and other effects are put into full visual effect.

Custom music and sounds directly from the Star Wars galaxy are completely incorporated.

Balance and game play are modeled with the feel of the
films. Each craft has its own specific handling, capabilities, and combat
styles--all which are directly adapted from the Star Wars movies. Balance is
key, as any craft can be deadly and efficient in the right hands. For example,
the TIE Fighter is a deadly craft that while easily destroyed, can avoid damage
through superior maneuverability and speed.

Custom missions and campaigns that will take place over the course of the Original Trilogy. The
player will have the chance to fight in and influence some of the most iconic events
from the films and fight through randomly generated mini campaigns. Fight for either the Empire or the Rebel Alliance. Both a ‘Fight for Freedom' and ‘Imperial Enforcement' storylines will be

Latest FSO 3.7.2 Final features are incorporated.

Open modding and mapping capabilities, the table files are logically organized and arranged to allow others to alter, tweak, or expand upon the mod.

Everything has been modified to represent a Star Wars atmosphere. Ships are fast, lasers
are deadly, proton torpedoes are explosive and powerful, X-wings and
TIE Interceptors have auto convergence, jumps into hyperspace are just like the
movies, ships with R2 units have some slow auto repair abilities, and etc.

Freespace 2: Open engine, Media VPs 3.6.14, and FSO 3.7.2 Final. Freespace 2 can be found on for under 5 US dollars and the free FS2 Open 3.7.2 and Media VPs 2014 are located at this site:

The biggest additions are the multiplayer missions and new HUDs. That's not all though, read below for a full explanation of all the changes. Also, this is a standalone release, so please just delete any previous versions and use this version. It also include the fixed Prologue mission.

Note on Multiplayer:
For those of you who want to set up multiplayer missions but do not know how please refer to these pages:

- Setup:
- Toubleshooting:
- Standalone servers:
- The entire wiki for multiplayer is here: community at HLP is very helpful and friendly so they are a great resource if you are having trouble, too.

Note on Missions:
All missions are under the Mission Simulator in the Tech Room. Prefixes for the file names have been used to more effectively differentiate mission types. Missions with 00(0, 1, 2, etc) designate official missions in the OT campaign. An N, R, or E will also follow the number to signify Neutral (N), Rebel (R) or Empire (E) type mission. Coop missions are multiplayer missions, FFA designates Free For All and TvT designates Team vs Team. CC in the file name are community created missions. X shows missions that are concept ideas/tests.

Note on the new script functions:
-In-Mission Techroom: Alt-1 shows your ship info, Alt-2 shows weapon info, and Alt-3 shows info about target. You can check the status of the subsystems, which is very handy for planning an attack strategy on a larger ship like a Mark II SD. It is also included since all of the ships and weapons are relatively unfamiliar.

A full campaign is indeed one of the long term goals. For now the Tech Rom missions are the most we have done.

I just found this error myself. It seems to pop up with 3.7.2 Final builds especially. Luckily it is a simple fix. Just go into the mod's table folder and delete the file called tstrings.tbl

Hello wookiejedi, I encountered this problem too but I managed to fix it. I just opened it with Notepad++ and encoded it in ANSI and then I deleted the quotes within quotes around "rebels" which was bugging it out and saved. Then it started without error. Btw, thank you for giving credit on the mod, I truly appreciate it and I'm glad I could help if but only a little :) Great job on the mod!

Nice! Thanks for that fix, I'm glad it was just a case of too many quotes. Thanks you for the support as well!
