New to emulators full stop. Please advise.

Postby Belwri » October 8th, 2013, 4:47 am

Hey.

So I have a few noob questions I'd appreciate answering.

1)What is the difference between ANH emulator and SWGemu? Are they just two servers? If so, in what way do they differ?

2) Are either of them live? (Its hard to tell from the forum posts cos of old 'post dates') If not, what date are we expecting the server to come up?

3) Have played many MMOGs and me and English mate looking for a home. Any suggestions? Ta

Hi there Belwri,

SWG:ANH and SWGEmu are like Pepsi and Coke. Both are emulating the 14.1 Final publish of Star Wars Galaxies Pre-CU. However, we are different teams of people, separate emulators.

SWGEmu has 2 live servers, Basilisk and Test Center Nova. SWGEmu is currently in Alpha game development- with live servers- but still making commits and adding features. SWG:ANH is still under development over all and does not currently have any public play servers. We are currently in the process of changing more back-end features and systems.

If I am honest with you, SWGEmu is a better choice for you if you want to play the game right now. SWG:ANH will be releasing a play server eventually™, but not very soon.

OK, so just to make sure....

Galaxies Reborn = SWGEMU + SWGANH

Or am I mistaken? Is Galaxies Reborn a third, newer emulator that isn't live yet?

Thanks in advance for your patience.

Galaxies Reborn is a Pre-CU Community that will host servers, but is not creating an emulator.
