INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION INSTRUCTIONS
Step 1: Download and install SWGEmu. http://www.swgemu.com/forums/content.php?r=179-Install-SWGEmu
Empire in Flames is based on SWGEmu's Core3, and until we have a proper launcher, this is the best way to begin.
Step 2: Test SWGEmu to ensure it is working before proceeding with Empire in Flames install.
Step 3: Download the EiF patch. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B0u-OILWuzRgbzhxdGZZV01EUmc/edit?pref=2&pli=1
It contains three files - one for actual client files, the other two for configuration and connection information for the SWGEmu client.
Step 4: Launch SWGEmu.exe directly. DO NOT USE THE LAUNCHPAD, OR IT WILL REMOVE THE EIF FILES!
Step 5: Select a username and password. Enter it at the first login prompt. This will register the account the first time you log in.
Step 6: Create a character and head to TEST CENTRAL on TATOOINE. There is a frog in the city in the junk shop next to the shuttleport. Currently, zoning is not in place, so feel free to place a structure in the city. Please don't be stupid.
Step 7: Test and report problems.
Agreed. Then again, a show shouldn't be sold to us solely based on the fact that the Star Trek franchise is involved in some shape or form, which seems to have been a trend lately alas.
