Alright let's make this clear, first and foremost I'm not the OP false flagging from last time, fuck that guy in whole because he's a faggot.
With that out of the way, I want to ask /v/ for some advice here.
I'm soon to be in possession of an alpha build of star wars battlefront 3 for 360. I release builds left and right (within reason) for 360 and ps3 if I get my hands on them and i want everyone else to have a taste.
Because this is a fucking high profile title, one that lots of people want, I need to be sure this is handled properly. Lucas as far as I know is not one to put this shit down lightly, and as such, uploading it worries me.
If I were to release this publicly in the near future (i'd give it about a month if everything goes smoothly) how much legal action would Lucas take to shut this shit down?
The build is in the hands of an unknown amount of people (I'll assume 15 or 20) and it hasn't been leaked because of the possible lawsuits involved and as a result nobody wants to be that guy (and collectors like their shit not leaked).
So /v/ what are my options?
>star wars battlefront 3 alpha for 360
>want to leak it
>lucas is a mean man
>want to cover my as as much as possible once its in my hands
>want to upload it
>if i succeed how potentially fucked am i
as a side note - Id be fucking over collectors for hoarding it (one i talk to personally), but this shit's story is fucked up and many people were fucked over in the process.
you can ask questions but i cant promise answers as i dont have it just yet
>how much legal action would Lucas take to shut this shit down?
None because George Lucas doesn't give a fuck about Star Wars anymore
>>want to cover my as as much as possible once its in my hands
Upload it to torrents and take it down as soon as you get a C&D. By that time a fuckload of people would have it if it's legit and it will have spread enough that it's out of your hands.
DMCA is what im hoping is the MOST that comes from it.
I use Mega for my storage and I'm on my second account now for holding builds so I may need to make a new one exclusively for this (not an issue but still).
I dont know quite yet how big the files are once combined so I can only assume its 3-6gb of data. I dont like to make separate parts, but would you suggest using part files?
no but with how much people want it i wouldnt be surprised.
ive tried in the past and fucked up. i know its easy to make but im a faggot that uses deluge and theres little to no easy solutions for this.
>None because George Lucas doesn't give a fuck about Star Wars anymore
granted because im not a star wars fan i suppose im overthinking it based on previous shit hes done... is he really that done with it?
>Upload it to torrents
You're likely bullshitting or this is some old pasta or something, but just DO IT OP. DON'T BE A FAGET
youre welcome to believe what you will honestly. im not here to release it (yet) im here to gather what i need to know to cover my ass before release.
pic related, its the root directory of the game.
would you advise multiple parts of a rar or would you advise a single link?
Do you anons want any proof of builds i have stored on my mega accounts to show that i do indeed leak things?
Alright so let me be sure I got all this right
1) Use MEGA because i cant handle making a torrent
2) expect C&D letters if anything
3) if links are DMCA'd reup
The last thing left is where should I drop the link once it's been uploaded? The site I frequent (assemblergames) would NOT want something this big there unless I had approval to post it, and i likely wont (I'll try though).
What other sites (other than here) should I drop the link on?
Anything unreleased, no. Best I can do is link some other unreleased builds like Metalocalypse for 360 and Saints Row Moneyshot (also 360).
My own personal contributions may not interest anyone but I can show some stuff i suppose.
Pic related, my first mega account of 2.
Its real, Im sorry for blueballing you right now but my safety comes first in this case.
as a followup, heres my local collection of folders if you want to take a look
and before you ask, yes its PT, no it wont work yet. CFW needs to happen first before its in any usable state.
my ebin trole'd scanner is going off the charts
fhcm you op noooooo stop being butthurt that battlefront is a good game
My thoughts exactly anon
argue all you want.
its really at the cap for one account
can you retype this so i can understand it?
pick ps3 or 360 and ill show what i have
lets do this you fucker!! You aren't all that
only 360 has surfaced for the battlefront 3. PC build will likely never surface.
pic related for local storage. and both mega accounts.
refer to pic
upload mega link or ill kill self, or at the very least, break my pspgo
why god why did we have to live in the timeline where this got scrapped but a game that makes cod look deep and full of quality content by ea is the 3rd or so highest selling game of the year
i mean, elite squadron took some of the concepts and used them, wish they waited for the vita, but its still a fun game
im not lying, but im doing my best to deliver.
when i get the files ill do so immediately once ie made sure all is correct.
noted. thank you anon.
i dont like reupping something thats very public so heres one on an archive.
here you anons go. its not as exciting as you may think.
Its funny, this shit is almost gone from the fucking planet and i made the effort of wasting 2 days of my life getting the last fucking copy i could find and im making sure this never gets lost.
internal codenames. not my doing, its just what the xex file contained calls it (or internal naming is plainly visible)
stop this it can't be true
so you have no PC battlefront 3 leak?
might as well kill myself
I'm about to go to class, pls upload within the hour
but why if the MF link works?
i have an XDK with sidecar. it will run for sure, i can promise this.
its pretty fun honestly
moneyshot is a fucking godsend even though its completely unfinished. that deserved to be out.
PC version hasnt surfaced. no build of PC will surface and im confident when i say this.
BUT IF THIS GETS OUT IT MAY CAUSE INTEREST FOR SUCH
no can do anon, i gave a timeframe of a month for it to safely get into my hands.
internal build codename. usually because milestones in dev process and codenaming them is easier than saying BUILD 29985 or something like such.
Do you think it would be reasonable to use public wifi or something like such?
I know thats a retarded idea but it may be of interest if their upload speed is far better than mine (~500kb/s up)
i mean i want it to get here sooner but i cant rush this or i wont ever get it.
you play as a hitman's bullet and do objectives as the bullet. theres lots of different bullets to unlock (its a lot of shit i cant tell you how much because im still working at it) but overall one of the best games that never made it to the public.
i dont have an xbone or ps4 nor do i want PC battlefront.
Anon's i promise you, im trying my best here, but these things take time (and money)
to appease the anons more, would you gusy want any ps3 builds? i havent leaked some publicly yet because i still need to make pages for them on tcrf
Upload it in a passworded .far, multiple parts and don't say specifically what it is. Post it on /v/ or some wares sites then take it down a day later. To be extra safe buy a proxy for the upload.
Don't use your internet
Or if you want to be as safe as possible upload it to a TOR site
sorry i missed this one.
yes you do. its a sad thing but thats what it has to be.
as a /g/ frequenter im not going to use that.
if you read the post youd understand that its not in my possession yet.
heres the playstation content i obtained and uploaded or downloaded from other places if available.
Buy a cheap laptop with cash at a pawnshop, use a VPN and create a torrent while at a mom'n'pop non-franchise coffee shop via wifi.
afterwards throw the laptop in a river
hol up hol up
This is a long shot, but do you by any chance have the really early E3 Sonic DS game? It was 3D and was basically a "runner" game.
That, or some of the real early Super Mario 64 DS builds?
If OP really was spouting bullshit why would he say he currently doesn't have it?
>if you read the post youd understand that its not in my possession yet.
do it when it will be, duh
not that you can run it without a debug console
Unless it's a green disc, it's literal trash. And green discs are only printed when a game is close to shipment
i didnt say he was spouting bullshit, all im saying why make the fucking thread if he doesnt have shit yet?
anon, i know the dream is dead and you dont want to be lied to, but i feel you must know that if i rush this or pressure this i will not have the game at all and it wont be leaked ever.
and you replied to me, the OP, in case you, you know, didnt know
> do you by any chance have the really early E3 Sonic DS game
no, but give sonicretro a shot on this one. someone may have info for you on this one.
>hat, or some of the real early Super Mario 64 DS builds?
no to this one too, best i can do is point you to 3d world for 3ds from e3. mario builds are not something you get to see often as nintendo guards that shit like its their life (it somewhat is too)
this right here, i dont understand why people arent understanding that i dont have it YET.
a friend of mine suggested starbucks and i said i cant even be okay being near one.
>why make the fucking thread if he doesnt have shit yet?
so when i get it i can cover my ass properly and deliver
im running out of images to post with as well.
im fine thanks for asking. its also 5:33am and i have a jack in the box hash brown to eat
i got lazy and dont want to redact shit much more
>no SM64DS early builds
Fuck me sideways....
as far as im aware there arent any except maybe a NFR version which is usually for display units at shops. its the final game (normally) so the most i can say is hope for a demo build leak?
Ive been wanting to get a Partner-CTR-Capture unit because DVI out to a 30 inch monitor for a 3ds game with more polish is sexy as fuck, but they cost too much at the moment and would not be financially viable for me for the time being.
I'm going to head to bed soon, so is there ANYTHING more i should know before hand? I want to make the release smooth but also cover my ass in all the armor i can find.
Well depending on how big the file is, starbucks could take a while. If it has an ethernet jack that would speed it up but you could try and leech off a friend's wifi and roll from there.
Also thanks for doing this. Whether it happens or no, I'll always love you.
i dont honestly have an estimate other than it should be able to fit on a single layer dvd if it were to be on a storage media.
3-6gb is my range if intuition serves me well.
Mario poster here.
The best I can say is buy a cheap laptop to use a VPN or Proxy to upload it from on a public WiFi to be untraceable.
do you anons feel i should put on a tripcode to ensure you know its me when the time comes?
even if it makes me a huge faggot i want to promise you this will happen
Use the tripcode SWBFIII and make another thread like this and I'll be sure to come back.
was a screenshot from the person im getting it from.
Alright I'm done with the thread. Feel free to screenshot, archive, or whatever for this thread.
When I post the release (again no set dat yet but EST 1 month) I'll be using this trip. until then ill be posting under anon to not draw a huge amount of attention to myself.
Good luck to you all and I expect to be back.
or if you want something new from the mega accounts say so and ill share link
Wasn't Lucasarts disbanded?
Lucas himself has no stake in SW anymore, it's a Disney thing. I doubt they'll give much of a fuck -- it's a game they had no stake in that wasn't even released.
>Cancelled Darth Maul game
This looks baller as fuck, why am I only hearing this now?
Jesus Christ. First 1313 now this.
Will we ever get any amibitious SW games again?
only 1 n64 build is uploaded by me. theres a lot more here (though not complete)
the mega accounts are my own contributions, the MF link is an archive by one person searching to preserve em all
Shouldn't you upload it somewhere discreet like an internet cafe to prevent getting the upload traced back to yourself, and consequently getting fucked for it? This might have already been brought up.
I feel like most of these died because of the Disney stuff. Now that they know star wars =loads of dosh (implying they didn't) they'll probably pick up the maul game. 1313 might stay dead unfortunately.
>Lucas sells everything to Disney
>Disney shuts down LucasArts because something something profitability (1313 is effectively cancelled as a result)
>based Raven open-sources JO and JA
then has to take it down because they accidentally included shit they weren't supposed to, like the IFC libraries
>Disney digitally releases more LucasArts shit
Shadows of the Empire where >Disney starts making a new film trilogy oh come on how you not know about THIS at least
