After giving it a good try, it is a pile of utter shite!

It's pretty and it sounds fantastic, but the more I played the more the gameplay felt like shit. I'm sad, as this could have been fantastic in the right hands (and not dice/EA)...

So, it's not good as the Galactic Conquest mod for BF1942, original Battlefront 1-2, etc.?

The game runs unbelievably well on my laptop. I'm a little concerned they might be using black magic. I'm on a Asus G75V laptop with a Geforce 660M graphics chip and the game runs real well on low. Even looks great at 1920x1080.

I expected it to be a slide show.
Using maximum options too?

Sounds like the maps are even smaller than Battlefield, so maybe around the same? The FB3 engine isn't a total hog. Ant, what's your rig currently?
Old enough not to be able to play today's newer games for years since I don't game these days. Haha.

27. SW Mods. Oct 7, 2015, 17:46 Ant

Bah. I'd rather play Galactic Conquest for BF1942. Wait, are there any good SW mods for newer game engines?

As previously noted, Angels Must Fall is basically Battlefield in space. It has been in development for many years, and runs on UE3, so any gaming PC built after 2007 should run it.

As for Star Wars mods, coincidentally I downloaded the First Strike mod for BF2142 just the other day, but I haven't had a chance to try it yet. Here's a trailer with both space and ground combat.

And Battlefront 2, while pretty old, is still newer than BF 1942, but not by much. Still, you've got older hardware anyway, right? So any of these would be better than Galactic Conquest.

I think the newest Star Wars mod I've seen is the one for Arma 3, although I don't know much about it. You need a pretty beefy machine to run Arma 3 though.

The sad thing is that newer game engines like Frostbite 2 are really locked down in terms of modding. And companies are getting really aggressive about policing their IP.
Thanks!

I remember when I went to E3 2003, I played America's Army on an Alienware at a display booth to show off the power of the computers. I was absolutely jaw dropped by the realistic graphics, sounds and gameplay. It's one of the games that got me into PC gaming at the time.
Didn't they have real army people and tanks outside too? I wonder how good this AA game is.

I believe you can use the retail version's CD key to activate a copy on Origin (here: https://activate.ea.com/gameactivation.do).

Correct. It even comes with both DLCs.
But it doesn't work with old games like Battlefield 1942, etc. according to this article. I tried BF2, BF:V, Crysis 1, C&C3, etc.

Joe Kucan rules. I still remember his stories how he came Kane. I just saw him yesterday in a C&C3:KW cutscene when I was resuming my saved game from September 2008! I forgot how fun C&C games were. I also was testing my old video card because it was crashing in Dead Island, Crysis 1, and other games. It seems to be overheating. C&C3:KW had no problems for a couple hours! :/
