New Launcher Design

  • As we're going through and revamping the functionality of the launcher, we're also looking into how we can redesign aspects of it to streamline both the interface and the programming and we want your help! What feedback do you have from the original launcher design as well as other designs that are proposed? What would be cool to see? What annoys you? Do you just want to play SWG and don't care what it looks like? Let us know!

  • The launcher looks okay to me as it is.


    I suppose it could get artistic...some kind of star wars control console with different buttons to press (with some iconic star wars sounds attached) for the different things might be fun...?

  • Honestly....I don't care. I say you guys do whatever is easier to make/fix. I'm not going to complain if the launcher isn't exactly gorgeous. I'm here to play star wars. lol

  • I've had the idea of a holocore server browser on my mind for some time.


    That IS pretty sweet looking, and it probably has some other applications that could be integrated with it, but is it secure enough?

  • I like the look, but I'm also one looks doesn't matter to me much. Its whether it is working right and its functional.

    Communication between any applications we make can be secured to whatever level we deem necessary, if that's what you mean.

    I care primarily that it works, is intuitive and can be expanded upon, which is partially why the design isn't super complicated either. The images are there to give that Star Wars Galaxies vibe, which would otherwise be lacking. The idea is that new functionality can be added with ease due to the navigation on the left, instead of trying to fit it all into a single space.

    I misunderstood - I thought you were talking about an in-browser Launcher. I just naturally assume anything on a browser is not as secure as an application - but I haven't kept up with web security/HTTPS/Certificates at all...

    What I was referring to was a master server list, which the launcher can display. The launcher would remain a desktop application.
