Plenty of news to cover this week, including Game Update 5.2.2, upcoming class changes, more detail on Keith’s Roadmap, and BioWare’s new game “Anthem”. Then our guest Synwulf talks us through fan theories for Snoke’s origin and the identity of Rey’s parents.

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Quercus! Thanks to Rob and Javadoggy for entering.

Here’s Rob’s tip about extending your camera max view distance:

SWTOR has the ability to alter the amount that you can zoom out in game – by default, it’s a fair amount, but it can be extended dramatically by adding a simple line to a file on your computer.

Make sure the game is NOT open, since the file may be in use or revert back once you close the game. Find the folder –


Obviously, YourProfileName is whatever your Windows profile name is, which is most likely your name or your pet name for your manhood. Whatever, I am not here to judge you on your Windows user name.

The AppData folder is hidden since it’s a system folder, so you can either manually type that folder address into your RUN command line or change your Windows Explorer settings to show hidden folders.

Then find the file named: LoginName_Account.ini and open it.

After opening the file look for the line that says: Controls_CameraMaxDistance = 25.0

Change that 25.0 to something else like 50.0 or if you have a large monitor, 75.0 or 100.0 (the .0 is important).

I use 100 and it allows for some great field of view, which is super important and useful in PvP – if you’re guarding a node, you can see incomings easily, and it also gives you the ability to get some great views of scenery.

For example, here’s a shot of the fleet, with me in the middle.
