    Reddit / Twitter use ProtoFaggot has put a beta build up for download of Star Wars Battlefront III for the Xbox 360. A game very much wanted by the community, however ultimately canceled before release. (This is not the same as the 2015 release).

    The build is 70217 which is quite playable, however at a low framerate.

    This is not something we can host due to DMCA requests, however ProtoFaggot's origional Mega link is still online:

    So after lots of work, this is completely useless. I did get RGloader running on my Falcon JTAG console. It boots once. I mean literally once. I boot into RGloader and it works as long as I don't turn the 360 off. Once I reboot the console it fails to boot EVERY time. So to get it to boot again I have to do a hardware flash. I guess I'll just wait until someone patches a freeboot compatible version.

    That's a shame to hear, I've not head time to try it yet, however from what people are saying it only works correctly on a Devkit. I did see people are working on improving it, and even porting it to the PC. Hopefully with that in mind they will be something more people can try in the near future.

    To be perfectly clear, my main issue is with RGloader. It's not worth my time to flash a nand image, then have to manually write it again every time I reboot. I did try a few different builds, same issue.

    Battlefront III DID launch, but as expected the framerate was abysmal. I didn't want to run it very long as the console was still apart without a proper airflow to keep it cool.

    I played for around 30 mins, the frame rate is anywhere from 3fps to 15fps according to the on screen indicator. Its playable enough to explore the world a bit.

    The game been quite fun in a finished state. The cut scenes appear to have music but no audio so it's interesting trying to work out what is going on. From reading the on screen objectives you do at least have some idea what your supposed to be doing. It does appear your invincible too, which is very handy considering the FPS.

    From looking at Reddit various people are working on improving this / getting it working on PC, so hopefully it should soon be a lot more playable.

    I found it really interesting to see how the game was so early in development, it's always fun to mess about with unfinished games.

    Below are some screenshot i captured from the first mission:

    No, it doesn't even work on a normal Jtagged console either.

    You need a Jtag / RGH running RGloader instead of Freeboot.

    Wow, that looks really cool. What kind of playable modes does the beta have?

    Really wish my 360 was JTAG'd.

    You can play through the campaign, that's all I have really touched on so far. I don't think you can do much multilayer wise in it's current state.

    Awesome! Even more bugged game than Goat Simulator! (this one can crash and reboot my rgloader machine even if i don't press anything after launching it) :P.
    Something i discovered:
    • Multiplayer is playable (but it runs even worse than Perfect Dark in Rice's Daedalus video plugin)
    • There are almost no debug stuff (except fps counter and few boring test maps), which is interesting (look at Crackdown beta)
    • It overall runs worse than Perfect Dark in daedalus
    • MP UI is broken. Just press A, or your xbox can lock and reset itself
    I will update this post, when i discover something interesting.
