@Space Cobra

Well, that first comment disappeared awfully fast! Now I have a lonely reply. ;)

....A picture of Jabba the Hut in a bowler hat with an apple over his face a la Magritte, with the caption 'Ceci n'est pas une MMO'?

The DA2 loading screen?

Slave Leia pinup?

This is not mine, but I found this linked photo in the original article particularly "cackle-worthy"!

@Space Cobra I've been looking for a very high resolution of the un-modified version of that wallpaper since SWTOR launched. I beg someone to link it (pref 1680-1050 but anything larger will do)

@Lhurian

This is just altering the loading screen; it only affects your client/computer.

Such things have been done with many other MMOs in the past, like CoH and others. It doesn't affect gameplay or even access the game's servers.

true, I wonder though if Bioware is not checking hashes of whole Swtor installation

@Space Cobra

Just because it has been done before doesn't mean it isn't against the Bioware ToS and EULA. Those documents have clauses in them against modifying the game files and even something as little as changing a jpeg that only shows for you falls under those clauses.

The ability to enforce it might be low however depending on how advance their bot/hack detection software is. If its anything like Blizzards warden then it could be very easy.

I had screwed around with this in the past... noticed it in there when people were suggesting swtor.ini related settings (which seem to never work with the live client, anyway). Cool to have a layered PSD of the logo stuff, thanks!

@Mtor

Just give it up, dude. You have no idea what you are commenting on.

We could be talking about Dante's Inferno and you'd either suggest it needed more BBQ-pits or that Dante should never wear fur....

The devs are warning that this may trigger the patcher to fix your installation.
