On the name front, can I suggest something a bit out of line of how the naming has been proceeding? How about we pick an easy operating name to start, like JD/COM, and finalize a once we all start playing?

Great suggestion - Everyone good with just going by [JD/COM]YourName, temporarily?

I'll be picking up Battlefront as soon as it's in stores, which could be as early as today - not sure - Circuit City said the PC games always run late.

Hopefully my laptop can run this thing - if not, I'll be up the creek without a refund.

Got mine this morning (along with a nice bent figure card, cocknobs). I'll be up and running by tonight barring laziness.

I got my copy on the 21st, but I haven't had the time to fully explore everything it has to offer. Plus, it runs rather crappily (is that even a word?) on my computer. I might have to install it on my family computer, as it's heaps better than my own.

From what I've played, it's damn good. :)

I'm on as bobafett14 (pretty creative huh?)

Some tips(mine anyhow, as I'm sure everyone has thier own):

My fav character is the jetpack Trooper, has a missle launcher and grenades.

Vehicles are a must-you can rack up 30-40+ kills a game easy in the larger vehicles.  Much harder to do as a single trooper.  Also the jetpack trooper helps here becuse if you start a game and 10 others spawn with you, you can fly over them and get to a nearby vehicle quickly.

Get to know the spawn points-I just jumped into an AAT on Tatooine, sat in front of a spawn point and racked up like 42 kills in about 2 min.  Not a lot of fun (and I'm sure they'll have to change this-I was on the opposite side where I tried to spawn and was killed everytime by those camping out-litereally got killed like 10 times without taking a step, and never got to play

X-Wing/Tie/starfighter are kinda difficult to control and honestly to me(while fun to fly) aren't worth getting into especially with the cramped quaters in a very small playfield.

Droidekas are REALLY fun to roll around in, and hard to kill, grenades seem to disable the shields.

Right now I;m having lots of fun on the higher rooftops, setting the sights to first person and sniping, lots haven't caught on yet that they also need to look up ;^) easy way to rack up some points.

See Vader, or Luke or Mace.....just pull a monty python and   RUN AWAY!

FAV planets: Hoth and the kashhyyk Docks-I like the wide openess.  Least Fav-Rhenn Var temple-tight quarters too tight for as many people that are crammed in there battleing.

I actually have thought of that (didn't know its official "title" though Jared, so thanks!).  CorranHorn and I discussed it...  In the end I wonder if I'm just not better off running 2 PC's separately though.  I mean, should I buy a new one I can't imagine where this one would wind up...  It's obsolete by most standards I assume, short of my burner I just got.

It's not bad...  P IV 1.8 gig, smallish harddrive (19 gig), lotsa RAM though bought as a gift...  Sorta crap graphics card, but I could get a better one (not top of the line) cheap enough that'd run all my "old" games flawlessly and install simply enough.  That kinda stuff makes me wonder if someday just buying a new PC and keeping this mamojama running beside it wouldn't be the route.

Then again running two OS's would minimize space taken up by 2 PC's, which is a huge concern to me given the craptacular cramptness of my living quarters. :)

This sounds terrible... like Quake... run around spawn-fragging. I wish I knew someone who'd let me borrow their copy so I didnt risk wasting $50 on a run-n-gun fragfest. Eek.

There's got to be a tactical realism organization in Battlefront - their servers will be much better - if they exist.

I just got Battlefront, but before I opened it I see that at the bottom it says:

DSL, Cable or faster connection required for Multiplayer

Well folks, that means I'm out for sure. All I've got is dial-up.

Well this is crashing and burning. I'm out too, since I can't play for more than 5 minutes without the game crashing. I've gone through all the DX9 tests and there aren't any hardware problems, so I can only conclude that the PC release is a bugged pile.  >:(

Anyone wants to try and hookup for a game(I'm bobafett14), feel free to email me at:

bobafett.fourteen@verizon.net

I know it gets tough, but I'll be home a good bit around the holidays-off most of Thanksgiving week, X-mas week and a lot of 3 day weekends off Fri-Sun.)

other than that late evenings(9-midnight) work best for me.  The "homemade" servers don;t seem to work too great for me-I usually stick to just the plain "Movie-022" type servers. Best would be to prob. email with a time, check email at that time, and pick a server that isn't full or near full.

Burning a lot of vacation time. ;^)

By the way, I haven't posted for a while on Battlefronts mostly becasue I wanted to see them work out a few kinks.  I was having some lag problems (and I have a cable modem!) so now it seems to be running much smoother.

Looks like another  PS2 patch is due any day now, and everything has been pretty good lately.
