Star Wars Battlefront II – Patch 1.2 datamined

Here’s some stuff that was discovered by reddit user Heavyweighsthecrown  after spending a few hours in the game’s files with Frosty Editor – a game assets editor that’s also used to manipulate game files for mods. He Spent some hours looking at 3D meshes, cryptic command lines, colorful textures, and files named under some arcane system, and this is what he found… But first, a Disclaimer: I don’t know if people already knew this stuff 100% before this latest patch, or if this is new stuff. Also, everything here can easily be verified if you use Frosty Editor yourself to dive into the game files. There are actually 2 head models named “JangoFett”. But he’s without the helmet, and both look very alike. I don’t think they will be used in future models though. The more detailed head is probably the Clone Officer, and the slightly less detailed one is probably the background clones…

SWTOR Lead Composer Comments on Datamined KOTET Music

That feeling when you post datamined music and then the composer comes along to comment… yeah, that happened. User Jedipedia posted a 1 hour no-spoiler feed of music from KotET and lead composer Jesse Harlin stopped in for a comment. You can see the full thread with links to the music here.  Basically, the data mined music files are just the MIDI demos that were later replaced by an actual live performance. Honestly, those demo files don’t sound half bad and they definitely get us excited for the real thing that is coming soon. As for Harlin’s comment: “Hi, SWTOR. Lead composer Jesse Harlin here. Perhaps I can help to give some context on this for you all. This happened last time with KotFE and now it’s happened again with KotET. Just so that everyone knows, these are the rough demos that eventually turn into the final tracks. We headed to Nashville…

Swtor-mined: 2.7PTS New Maps | 3/1/2014

swtor_miner have been playing around with the new patch on the Public test servers and found some more goodies. First image is the Quesh Huttball map. The next two are the departure hangars for the new Flashpoints. (I wonder why there are 5 shuttles…) The rest are of the Tython and Korriban Flashpoints. Check it out below: My best assumption is that they copy pasted the old flashpoint rooms, and so they have 6 total rooms. and can fillup the other 2 when they feel like it. Personally I wouldn’t mind them pushing the rakata prime flashpoint a bit and have a flashpoint where we race against each other to find the Star Maps (multi planet flashpoint) I.e. Start at Korriban. Fight a boss, clicka shuttle takes us to Kysshyyk(pardon spelling) fight the 2nd boss there, jump to Dantooine. etc.

Swtor-mined: PTS Latest Build Dump | 10/8/2013

SWTOR_Miner is active again with a new data-dump of the lats Public Test Server game patch.  It looks like, zero nerfes in this patch to Rage dmg. Snipers can be charged on while in cover, but not while Entrenched. Zero changes to Bounty Hunter classes except the little pruge change.  I also  see Smash Juggs getting immunity to slows while using Enrage as being the most notable balance change included. I hope they add more changes then this because this will not change much.
