    *Question* On the scenario editor, are you limited to one of each Jedi, or can you put many of each (to create your own "Jedi Purge")?

    Am assuming that you will have something like the farms of AOK and that you can queue the work. However, how much can you queue? 15 or 40 as the latest AOK patch?

    I don't expect Gaber to post here again any time soon. With the WTC tragedy and all.

    I doubt the Attack on America affected LucasArts. I don't know, maybe he or one of his team might've been stranded somewhere when the flight ban was initiated. That's the only thing that could actually slow it down that's related to the WTC/Pentagon.

    <waving frantically> - "Valiento, continuity freaks, quick, come look at this..."

    Campaign 1: You control Chewbacca as Qui-Gon Jinn guides you through the Wookie colonisation of a new planet ? Alaris Prime.

    Campaign 3: It's time to resist suicide as you control the Gungans - with Boss Nass as general, you attempt to stop a bloody civil war three thousand years before the Trade Federation's blockade.



    LOL

    Campaign 3 begins way-back-when, but most of the missions take place during TPM.

    Until the first expansion pack is released, anyway... ;)

    Some of that info is obviously erroneous. We already knew about Qui-Gon, but it's Itchy, Chewie's father, that he leads (as confirmed by that screenshot)

    the difference between a 200 MHz and a 233Mhz is negligible - especially if your video card exceeds the min specs. The specs always tend to err on the site of caution.

    The game will probably run fine on your PC, just don't host an 8 player MP game ;)
