I just don't like the way of "fixing" a Codex entry by REMOVING it.

I was so much looking forward to FINALLY getting an Codex entry abot The Elysium - but now it's just gone !

Gone - simply gone - instead of reattaching it so something else (an in-game object, for example).

And what botheres me even more is that only republican Codex entries are removed.

Does this mean that

- Imperial Codex entries are bug-free?
- That the imperial side got more attention in the first place so that no such bugs could happen in the first place ?

I'm very glad to hear this. I realize it seems like an insurmountable task, but if they fix a few codex entries on every patch, they'll eventually get caught up. This may seem like a tiny, non-gameplay affecting issue, but it's really one of the most basic quality-of-life things that make players upset when they aren't working properly.

I'd like to suggest that they start by focusing on the codex entries that can lead to title awards (Loremaster, Beastmaster, etc.) as these are the ones the players will most often be questing for.

Once again, please do keep up with small improvements like this, as they are noticed and appreciated!

?
Uh... well it's possible that it wasn't available because nobody ever wrote that codex entry? Maybe they'll put it on the list of things to add in, when they start putting new entries in the system.

They aren't all Republic entries. The Correllian Engineering, Killik, and Galactic History 88 entries affect Imperial players.

It looks like they're just fixing what's easily fixable first, regardless of which faction it affects. Perhaps the next wave of fixes will be mostly Imperial.

anyone know where is the codex ''Caught between 2 foes'' on Hoth?

Ehm, just past weekend, with my Bounty Hunter doing a quest with my Sith Inquisitor friend I got the "Elysium" codex entry. So it's ingame, won't make sense to remove it then...?

The codex fixes I want most;
* Missing species (so many exist, but barely any of them work).
* Epic enemy entries no longer given since achievement system (which also gets you stuck having only 10% depending how many you got before that patch).
* All the missing titles (got 0/1 for pretty much every planet. According to various places these titles are for doing the bonus series. Did, never got them, they pretty much all dont work).

I've been a codex hawk from the get go (19 months in before the FIRST fixes) but I have to give BW some credit here. This is a goodfaith effort for the codex in 2.2.2 and I'm pleased.

I'd say 5-6 codex fixes per major patch could get this thing turned around!

The state of the codex is clearly not acceptable, but keep it up BW!

So, checking it after 2.2.2;
* The "" category hidden away above datacron's 2 entries no longer have images. "" is just blank, but Outlaw's Den and Ilum Landing zone reside there, and the last 2 no longr have images.
* Space; New Cov Astroid field (elimate all enemies) still misses it's image (always has)
* Lisk in Bestiary has no image.
* Lore - Hutt neutrality has no image.

And of course the 5/6 Taris quick overview is still there, as is the text cutoff.

I appreciate the specifics you've provided - it will help immensely with our investigation into each issue.
Use some of that CM money and get crackin' or better yet, hire back the people who helped make it to fix it.

Which is exactly what I feared.

My "inner cynic" wants a collection, a list of achievable codex entries for both the republic and the empire - and my "inner cynic" also fear that the amount of Codex entries for the Empire will be higher because the developers simply neglect the Republic. I'd call that "favouritism" towards the Empire side of the game.

More codex fixes.

Hopefully each patch will have fixes, than it should be fully functional in no time.
Oh, one can dream...
