• Welcome
Welcome to SWg Awakening Pre-Cu!

SWG Awakening is a Pre-CU based Star Wars Galaxies Server powered by SWGEmu. Awakening's goal is to revive Star Wars Galaxies and bring back Pre-CU in all its glory! Awakening has a unique Jedi unlock system, that NO other server incorporates. The goal with this new Jedi system is to bring back some mystery when obtaining Jedi.

To play on Awakening, you will need a copy of the original Star Wars Galaxies client. An Empire Divided, The Total Experience, or The Complete Online Adventures is required. Clients obtained through illegal means are strictly forbidden. Copies of the game are still available at most major online retailers. Please visit Play Now for a full guide on how to connect to SWG Awakening.

Awakening Publish 10 Deployment to Live

All things going to plan, the server will come down on the 12th of December 2021 at 1:00 PM ET to deploy Awakening's Publish 10 to the live server. The server is expected to be down for approximately 2 hours, during this time we will also be carrying out operating system updates to the server.

The test server is up with the changes that will be implemented, so we encourage all members to login to test to ensure that everything is working as intended. We will work as best as possible to do necessary last minute changes/fixes before deployment. Following the release of Publish 10 to the live server we will release hotfixes and some balance passes as needed to fix any issues that are identified and confirmed.

Some important things to note:

  • We have reverted the XP cap for FRS XP (that is part of SWGEmu's Publish 10 code) on a temporary basis to allow our players time to rank up before it is re-enabled. We will announce with notice when we decide to reimplement the XP cap that will forcibly trim any XP that players have in excess of their respective cap.

  • There is expected to be some additional balance work done on the Jedi/BH skills post release of Publish 10.

  • Final patch notes for Publish 10 will be posted around the time of the server coming down.

    • Whilst we have collated most changes in these patch notes, some items may have been accidentally missed due to the sheer size of this publish.

  • Whilst testing has been undertaken on this patch there may still be some bugs that accompany it upon release, if you identify anything you feel is a bug, please report it using our ticket system or the admin@swgawakening.com email

Awakening 7 Year Anniversary Celebrations

G'day Awakening,

We are fast approaching being another year older as a community, Awakening will officially be 7 years old on November 8th! We continue to provide an escape from the pandemic for many of our players this year and most importantly a stable and inviting place to relive SWG Pre-CU! Thank you all, for continuing to be a welcoming and helpful community.

To celebrate the 7 years we have been voyaging through this galaxy as a community, we will be having the usual weekend long festivities (Restart on the 5th – Restart on the 8th). The event will include a commemorative set of paintings, XP bonus and a celebratory badge for your characters. There will also be numerous other events.

This is how the weekend’s celebrations will work:

  • Two random paintings from the commemorative collection will be awarded to the first toon on your account to login after the scheduled server restart on the 5th of November (this mechanism will be on until the next server restart).

  • A special commemorative badge will be awarded to each toon logged in between the usual scheduled restarts on the 5th and 8th.

  • All experience gained will be doubled (from the base rate of 1x or 100%) for the period between scheduled restarts, this means that the experience gains will be increased from their current level of 200% (base, plus the on-going bonus due to COVID), to 3x or 300% of the base value.

  • Three lotteries will be initiated at some stage over the weekend, and be drawn in one week’s time from the start date. A staff member will announce when they are placed and their location.

    Lottery Prizes include:
    • Tier One: 1 Rare House of the Winner's Choice.

    • Tier Two: 1 Rare Vehicle of the Winner's Choice

    • Tier Three: 1 Prize Token

  • Screenshot Scavenger Hunt! On Friday after reset 7 NPCs will be scattered throughout the galaxy to represent a selection of the Awakening staff members.

    Prizes will be awarded as follows:

    • Minor prize for the first to find each NPC (one prize per NPC) and mail ROGUE its location (lucky dip from a prize bag)

    • Grand prize for the first player to find and mail ROGUE the correct Location of all 7 NPCs (player's choice of a rare vehicle from the list below)

      • BARC Speeder

      • Imperial BARC Speeder

      • Rebel BARC Speeder

      • AB-1 Landspeeder

      • Desert Skiff/Transport Skiff

      • Mustafar Lava Skiff

      • Tantive-IV Landspeeder

      • USV-5 Landspeeder

      • V-35 Landspeeder

      • XP-38 Landspeeder

  • Live Events! Several live player events will be held on Saturday & Sunday to celebrate our 7th anniversary.

    • A Dice of Death game will be held upon the completion of each event. With a choice of one item, from a selection procured out of the Prize Hall being the reward to the person the Dice of Death leaves standing at the end!

  • The Keren Race Track (1396, 2686 Naboo) will be OPEN for prizes from server reset Friday to server reset Monday. Players will need to aim for the fastest track time in order to receive prizes (as usual, the server's external race track logging will provide these times to us). A first and second prize will be awarded for characters without force run 2 or 3, as well as a first prize for characters with force run 2 or 3!

    Prizes are as follows:

    • First place, character without force run 2 or 3, one prize token

    • Second place, character without force run 2 or 3, a tape of choice from the Rogue Outpost City Hall

    • First place, Jedi character with force run 2 or 3, a choice of a flawless pearl or a prize token

To be eligible to get the anniversary rewards (badge and paintings) you will need to restart all Awakening clients and the launcher if you have either open, after the November 6th restart. This is so the updated client file downloads to your Awakening install.

We, as a staff team would like to thank everyone for helping us make it to 7 years of continuous operation, whether that be as a player or as a staff member. Without all of you Awakening wouldn't be here 7 years on from its inception. We look forward to whatever may lie before us in the years ahead! We hope to have you all along for the ride with us!

Launcher Update v1.2.0

I have just released a fairly big launcher version update in terms of the look of the GUI and the packages it runs on. To most of you this won't mean much difference apart from a few logo and graphic changes here and there. This update should download automatically next time you open the launcher while connected to the internet. If you experience any issues though, please open a ticket so we can identify them and assist you with a resolution.
