Fresh Install from SWG Disks method.


Note: For a guide on how to install using a Basilisk install, please scroll down. We still recommend installing with a fully fresh disk install but it is doable with a Basilisk install.

Step 1: Register a SWG Aftermath game account & forum account
First, you want to register an Aftermath game account. To do this, click here. Then proceed to register and activate your account. This will be the account you log into the game with. Please note, your game account is separate from your forum account. To register a forum account, use this link. Once you have a forum account you can begin to post on our forums.

Step 2: Acquiring Sony's Star Wars Galaxies Installation Media
To play on Aftermath you will need the physical Star Wars Galaxies CDs. You need 'An Empire Divided' 'The Total Experience' or 'The Complete Online Adventures'. If you don't own one of those three copies, you can easily purchase a copy for yourself online.

Step 3: Install Star Wars Galaxies
Proceed to install Star Wars Galaxies with the CD's you have. Once the game is installed, make a copy of that Star Wars Galaxies folder that was just created from the disk install and name this copy 'SWG Aftermath'. Keep the original installation static and do not use it for any purpose involving SWG Aftermath. All further modifications and updates will be targeted at the new SWG Aftermath folder you now have.

Step 4: Download the Aftermath Installer Client
Now that you have Star Wars Galaxies installed onto your PC the next step is the download the Aftermath Installer. You can download the installer here.

Step 5: Install the Aftermath Installer
Proceed to run the Installer you just downloaded and when prompted, install it into your SWG Aftermath directory. You want it to be installed inside of the 'SWG Aftermath' folder. Not inside of a new folder inside of SWG Aftermath. So make sure that 'SWG Aftermath' is the final path.

Step 6: Download the Aftermath Launcher and extract it into your SWG Aftermath folder.
Using this link, download the Aftermath launcher. Once it is downloaded extract the contents inside of the 'SWG Aftermath' folder we made in step 3 and installed the Aftermath specific files into in step 5.

Once this is done, you should have a bunch of files in your SWG Aftermath folder and 4 folders called Images, miles, string and texture.

Step 7: Run the Aftermath Launcher & update files
Once you have copied of the launcher files, you will now be able to run the Aftermath launcher via 'AftermathLauncher.exe' from your SWG Aftermath directory. Run the launcher and use the 'Check for Updates' button to update and install all the custom Aftermath game files.

NOTE: If you experience any errors, run the launcher as administrator. To do this, right click the launcher.exe icon and click 'run as administrator'.

Step 8: Run the game.
From the Aftermath launcher, you can now run the game! You can also run the SWGEmu configuration to alter any graphical and game settings you wish before launching.

Install from Basilisk Method


PLEASE NOTE: This method assumes you already have an installed copy of Basilisk on your PC. If you do not, follow the guide located here.

Step 1: Register a SWG Aftermath game account & forum account
First, you want to register an Aftermath game account. To do this, click here. Then proceed to register and activate your account. This will be the account you log into the game with. Please note, your game account is separate from your forum account. To register a forum account, use this link. Once you have a forum account you can begin to post on our forums.

To play on Aftermath you will need the physical Star Wars Galaxies CDs. You need 'An Empire Divided' 'The Total Experience' or 'The Complete Online Adventures'. If you don't own one of those three copies, you can easily purchase a copy for yourself online.

Step 3: Make a copy of your Basilisk install
Find your Basilisk install and make a copy of it. Rename this copy SWG Aftermath. This is where Aftermath will be installed. This also allows you to keep your original version of Basilisk if you want to play there.

Step 4: Delete all the folders in your SWG Aftermath folder.
Inside of your newly renamed SWG Aftermath folder will be a bunch of folders. Delete these folders and only the folders.

Step 5: Download the Aftermath files and copy them to your SWG Aftermath folder.
Download the SWG Aftermath files located here. Then copy all the files into your SWG Aftermath folder.

Step 6: Run the Aftermath Launcher and do a full scan.
Run the AftermathLauncher.exe and run a full game scan. Then proceed to download all the files that are red so they become green.

Step 7: Run the game.
From the Aftermath launcher, you can now run the game! You can also run the SWGEmu configuration to alter any graphical and game settings you wish before launching.

We do want to mention, we are in the process of merging the launcher and installer into one program, however that isn't quite ready yet. We will update this post when the new installer is ready.

If you are having any errors, try some of these basic fixes.

  • Make sure you are running the launcher as administrator.
  • Make sure in the SWG Settings that you are running in your native resolution and NOT in windowed mode or borderless windowed mode.
  • Make sure to run a full scan via the launcher and download any red files.
  • Double check that you don't have any subfolders that should not be there in your SWG Aftermath directory.
  • Make sure your video drivers are up to date.
  • Double check that your virus software is not blocking the Aftermath.exe from running. Some virus software can block it, this is a false positive and you will want to make sure Aftermath.exe is an exception to your virus software.
  • Double check the instructions and make sure you are using a fresh disk install.
