ProjectSWG is an emulator for Star Wars Galaxies founded on July 7th, 2011 after an open letter was written to the Star Wars Galaxies community announcing that it was closing. Our goal is to create an emulator which will provide a server for players to continue playing a game similar to the one they used to play. We are basing it on the final publish of the game prior to the end-game events.

Star Wars Galaxies (SWG) was a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) released in 2003 and running until it was shut down on December 15th, 2011. Eventually it had a Combat Upgrade (known as the CU) which overhauled the combat system and defined it better, followed later by the New Game Enhancements (known as the NGE) update which took the community by surprise and drastically altered and simplified the game and effectively erased everyone's progress. Over time, the NGE was improved and built into something that many people loved.

Our primary goal has been to emulate the post-NGE version of Star Wars Galaxies which was shut down on December 15th, 2011, erasing many much-loved features of the game and erasing everyone's progress.

The project has gone much farther than ever imagined and we have made a vast amount of progress in research and development; we can login and load into the game successfully and have an open test server running with a number of implemented features. The project continues to grow month on month and we are always looking for more people to help out.
