Skip to Part II if you already have Star Wars Galaxies installed.
You WILL NEED a copy of Star Wars Galaxies. You DO NOT need to have any of the expansions, and not having the expansions will not affect your game-play at all. The game can be purchased from Amazon and Ebay for a range of different prices. You can use anything that contains Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided. Had you previously purchased the game through Steam, please continue reading on how to re-download it if you uninstalled it. If not, then you can skip the Steam section below.
Download the launcher files here:
Zip Method: https://swglegends.com/SWGLegendsLauncher.zip.
Open the zip file linked above and extract the contents of it to the folder where SWG is installed (the default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\StarWarsGalaxies.) From that folder right click the SWGLegendsLauncher.exe file and run it as Administrator. Login to the launcher using your forum credentials. Note: Do not use the same folder for multiple emulators/projects. We have our own patches and files.
If you don't already have an account on our forums, make one here. This account information will be used to log into the game, as well.
You'll see it scanning your game directory and checking for updates. If an update is required, you will need to press the “Update” button to download the needed patches before you can play. Make sure SWG isn't running when you update.
Once you are fully patched, you can press “Play” to launch SWG.
