    I've seen AOK run on a P1-166 with 48mb Ram successfully single player and as a multiplayer client.

    It did have a brand new-fangled 30gb hard drive, which helped. With that new drive, it ourperforms the P2-233 64mb Ram (Compaq) sitting next to it, on everything.

    the screenie with the two imperial walkers (AT-AT's) lookks very "clutered". i hope ingame its easier to tell which "driods" etc are 'alive' and which are just mangled peices of scrap metal that are infact 'dead'. from that one screenie i cant see its quite hard to tell - hopefully not ALL missions will be that "clutered".

    This is exerted from a GameSpot article for your convenience.

    'GameSpot spoke to a representative from LucasArts today about the company's upcoming real-time strategy game, Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds. According to LucasArts, the game is on track for release around November 12, and it may even be ready a week early.'

    Cool, eh?

    Well, I was hoping that the graphics would be better than this, but ah well. And it looks pretty damn like AoK (see scenario editor screenshots)

    Still should be good.

    SFL looks more like a Gamorrean to me. ;)

    So that's why Gaber didn't post again at the beginning of September. Probably busy getting the demo ready.

    Good news and bad news. The good news is that the demo is not 24meg. The bad, it is 70meg. Oh joy. After two crashes I'm 1/20 and 1 hour into my d/l. and I have DSL
