A Small Update

I haven't played SWGB for a little while, that's why I didn't post anything new recently. Now that summer is here, I don't know when I'm going to start posting again on a regular basis.

In the mean time, I invite you to visit the SWGB Heaven Forum:

SWGB Widescreen Patch

The easiest and most reliable way to make your SWGB support widescreen is to download and install the following patch:

Steam :: Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds All-In-One Patch

This patch was released on Steam last month (March 3rd, 2016) and it works great. It even optimizes the game, making it much more stable and enjoyable in single player.

It's great to play SWGB in 1080p, your screen covers a huge area of the map compared to the lower resolutions we had to endure back in the days. 1920x1080 is a great fit!

Have fun!

In the coming weeks, I'm going to share a step by step guide showing how to patch the game in order to play it in 1080p widescreen. It fixes the color glitch as well.

Have fun!

Wookiees Don't Have Targeting Sensors in Vanilla SWGB

Did you know?

Back when I was playing the original SWGB without the CC expansion, I remember being disappointed when I found out that the Wookiees didn't have access to the Targeting Sensors technology in the War Center. I thought it was a pretty big deal once you reach Tech Level 4 and beyond.

All your mech units as well as your boats, turrets and fortress would miss that ultimate +1 range/damage upgrade all the other civilizations have. That is a huge disadvantage in the late-game when everyone has fully upgraded their units and buildings.

They decided to unlock it for the Wookiees in the CC expansion to make things more balanced.
