Connection Issue

So I have been trying to get SWG Legends working with Isboxer. I have added the swgclient_r.exe in to Innerspace as a game. Innerspace automatically recognizes this as Star Wars Galaxies. Innerspace auto fills that name when I add the swgclient_r.exe. When I launch the game, the game window launches, it by passes the Legends launcher, it loads to the login screen. I enter my account name and password and it just hangs there with a message saying:

"Connecting to the Login Server"

Could Lax or someone please take a look at this and configure Innerspace to work with this game. Or could you please advice me on what I should do to get it working.

I had SWG Reborn working with isboxer back in January of 2016. I do not remember how I got it working back then.

Re: Connection Issue

I have not had any time at all to check on SWG Legends since this post, as I have been working full-time on compatibility issues with games that were previously working.

Re: Connection Issue

Well heres what I know after trying to get SWGLegends working with IsBoxer

First I have not been able to get SWGLegends working with IsBoxer. SWGLegends uses their own launcher. SWGLegends launcher application is SWGLegends.exe located in the StarWarsGalaxies folder wherever you installed it too.
If you set the game config in Innerspace to use that launcher (SWGLegends.exe) the launcher will launch, you then enter your user name and password, the game window will then launch but Innerspace has no control over the game window.
In order for Innerspace to control that game window I have had to bypass the launcher by pointing the Innerspace game config for this game to SwgClient_r.exe located in the StarWarsGalxies folder wherever you installed it too.
Game window will launch without using the SWGLegends.exe launcher. You can then enter your user name and password and press "Next", a small window opens in the game window that say "Connecting to Login Server" and the game will just hang there trying to find the SWGLegends account server but never does and you can't log in. The account server domain name for Legends is login.swglegends.com. I have tried using a command line parameter in Innerspace game config of
-server login.swglegends.com and this wont work. I also tried it by using the IP address which is 144.217.174.105 instead of the domain name and it still dont work.

Star Wars Galaxies uses a file named client.cfg to tell the SwgClient_r.exe what files to include during launch. Inside that file you will normally see something like this,

.include "login.cfg"
.include "live.cfg"
.include "preload.cfg"
.include "options.cfg"
.include "user.cfg"


Star Wars Galaxies uses a file located in its directory named login.cfg to specify what the login server domain name is. Inside that file you will normally find something like this,

[ClientGame]
loginClientID=(whatever your user name is)
loginServerAddress=(whatever the domain name is)

With Legends that client.cfg includes a call to a Legends only file named legends.cfg, that line in the file looks like this
.include legends.cfg
Inside the legends.cfg is where we now find the configuration information for the SWGLegends login server domain

If you launch the SwgClient_r.exe in the StarWarsGalaxies folder that has Legends installed it will by pass the launcher and you are able to log in to the Legends Server.
If you launch the SwgClient_r.exe in the StarWarsGalaxies folder that has Legends installed through Innerspace it will by pass the launcher but wont be able to find the server and you can not log in.

I have been able to get SWGReborn server to work with Innerspace as well as the new SWGHope server that is out now.
But these 2 servers do not use an additional file for their server info like Legends does.
These 2 severs use the same default login.cfg file like Sony did for their SWG server when it was live and they still had Star Wars licensing with Lucas Arts.

But there is still a problem with playing Star Wars Galaxies with whatever server you can get it working on.
Once Innerspace has control of the game window the x axis for your the mouse cursor movement will not work properly. It will stutter and hang terribly to the point were you can not play the game.
The y axis works just fine however.

I have made an attempt to get help with this issue here back in January of 2016:

http://isboxer.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=7278

I would love to play this game again but atm until the x axis issue gets fixed with innerspace we are out of luck.

Re: Connection Issue

Inner Space build 6242, now the development build of Inner Space, should resolve these issues. To try it out, right click Inner Space in the system tray (notification area) and select Patcher, tick "Download development (test) patches" and then close and restart Inner Space to let it patch up.

The SWGLegends.exe launcher should be used. I have to wait for admin approval on my account before it will let me test that, but prior to this build it could not launch this launcher, and it is working now.
