    config [SWTOR] Private Server Development

    Hello SWTOR Fans,

    I am currently looking for more people for my development team for Star Wars the Old Republic. The server will be written in C# as it provides a lot more flexibility than JavaScript and should be future proof. The server is 100% non-profit. Donations are accepted, but there will be no paid services. All donations will go towards maintaining the servers and possible upgrades. The server files as well as anything developed is not for sale, trade, or free. Do not add me to ask.

    The game is originally developed in HeroEngine and uses HeroScript (HSL) as the underlying scripting language. Both of these are uncommon knowledge which makes the process kind of fun.

    I am providing:


    • Developer Wiki in the discord explains everything from IDA Structs to opcodes to file types to even differences in releases.
    • Private Github.
    • Multiple paid for VPS's for development & the website.
    • Domain w/ a valid SSL cert.
    • Any development tools that's necessary for development.
    • Hooks for packet logging that are updated every retail release.
    • Trello with extensive ideas as well as possible future content.
    • Files for almost any client version (not required anymore, but can get them including Beta & original CD files).
    • Unpacked Retail Launcher currently being converted from JavaScript to C# (monsters made it in JS...)
    • And more...


    Mainly Looking For:

    I have a lot of available positions but the ones I am looking for the most would be Website Engineer, Client Engineer, & Server Engineer. Some requirements & preferred may be missing as I haven't investigated exactly what is required yet.

    Website & Contact Information:

    We have a dedicated Discord Server.

    Currently logging packets on 7.1.1b & 7.2pts for things that are not 100% operational (work done via 1.0.0 disc).

    Still looking! Especially for a web developer.

    ------

    Here's some answers to some questions I have received in DMs:

    Q. Why are you not doing a Public Git?
    A. The reasoning behind it is that Disney is apart of SWTOR now. My friend that's an ex-director for SWTOR at BioWare, as well as some other games, informed me that the only issue we would face is not from BioWare or EA, but Disney. The Git is private to avoid any possible abuse of the server.

    Q. Why aren't you paying anyone or charging for your server?
    A. Again, this is because of Disney. I will accept donations, and we may or may not compensate for the donation. People donate knowing full well they may not receive anything for their donation. This ensures that Disney can not come after us in regards to paid services and the like.

    Q. You're new on RZ. How do we know you're trustworthy? (I am phrasing this more politely than what was said to me)
    A. How do I know that you're trustworthy? I am actively working on and leading the project. I have proof images & videos taken from a server built on JavaScript. I have a wiki dedicated to knowledge that was reverse engineered. I have packets from 6.3.2a (when I started actively working on packet logging), I have packets from 7.1.1b & 7.2pts I am actively obtaining. I am paying for two servers that hosts the website & the SWTOR server itself. I am even crediting anyone who worked on the RE. The question isn't how am I trustworthy, but how are you?

    Q. Will you be sharing the files on RZ in the future?
    A. I won't be sharing the files anywhere in the future. Especially any custom files or custom software. If it is forced upon me to make a public git by Disney then it will be a git. Everyone that has been actively working on this project would like it to remain un-abused.

    Sorry ahead of time for posting this bump 6 hours early, I will be in bed before I can bump.
