Post Full game download
Now that SOE disowned swg, downloading SWG from a torrent or something is ok to do now right?
And if so, does anyone have any ideas on a good site to download the full game for the test server and once it goes live to use it for that?
And on a side note, perhaps someone should put a link on this site to download the game from here. It's all legal now I believe.

No it's not - that's why we are now allowed to post links such as this.

It's no longer illegal but it's still against SWGEmu's policy, so it would be best not to post on their forums that you're using the torrent version. :lol:

You should always remember that even though a company no longer supports or sells a game they still maintain all rights to that game. And when you are running a modifdication or emulation of said game you should do so with respect to that parent company. Firaxis, who hardly anyone knows of, still vehemently protects games they made for Windows 95 in example.

Granted, based upon the purpose of this community, that does not mean you actually have to respect SOE. You just have to respect that with one wave of the multi-imllion dollar legal team's wand we could be in big trouble. It does not matter if they could prosecute the EMU team because the EMU team would not be able to counter the legal actions taken by SOE and would lose by default.

So in the end I would suggest we stick to the old fashioned ways of finding the game. it should not be too expensive to buy a copy of a dead game after all. BTW, that reminds me... Anyone want to buy a copy of Matrix Online? :p

The game is abandonware and check here for the download The Pirage Bay SWG

The original post can be found on SWGANH's forums here.

Kinshi wrote:
After Dec 15th, 2011, the DMCA exemptions for abandonware in regards to allowing people to archive and distribute copies of old programs and computer games will officially apply to the SWG client.

What that means is on Dec 16th its open season on distributing AND modifying the SWG clients (the ENTIRE thing, not just bits and pieces). This also includes the exemption that allows circumvention of copyright protections on abandonware. It also means no more worrying about which version of the SWG client to use because of anti-server emulation clauses in the EULA.

In short, all those torrents for the client will become officially legal on Dec 16th and pretty much ALL EULA compliance issues will be rendered moot at that point.

This is the clause that applies;

(ii) the availability for use of works for nonprofit archival, preservation, and educational purposes;

That pretty much defines our project :)

Since none of this is being done for profit there isn't a basis for a lawsuit.

This works fine and includes JTL too:
