Launcher Stuck Downloading at XX%

If the launcher becomes stuck downloading and seems to have stopped, please up wait to 5 minutes, then close the launcher and reopen it. The launcher may redownload some files but will resume downloading.


Play Button is enabled (red) but the Game does not launch

This can happen due to one of two reasons, please try both solutions.

1) If you installed Sentinels Republic from a version of Star Wars Galaxies other than An Empire Divided or Jump to Lightspeed, the audio files may be too new.

  • Close the Sentinels Republic Launcher.
  • Navigate to your Sentinels Republic installation folder. (How to find your installation folder)
  • Locate the “miles” folder.
  • Delete the “miles” folder.
  • Open the Sentinels Republic Launcher.

The Launcher should download the correct miles audio files. Select “Play” and the game should launch.

If the game does not launch, go back to the “miles” folder, make sure that the file sizes are larger than 1kb. If any of the files are ~1kb in size, delete them and close and open the Sentinels Republic Launcher.

If trouble persists:

  • Open the Sentinels Republic Launcher.
  • Select the “Game Config” button.
  • Select the “Verify Files” button.
  • Let the Launcher verify your files, once it is done select the “Play” button.

If the game still does not open, download this zip archive and place its contents in your Sentinels Republic installation folder, then select “Play” from the launcher.
