Angry Birds Star Wars II Released for PC!

Angry Birds Star Wars 2 out for PCJedi Masters and Sith Lords rejoice! Angry Birds Star Wars II is now available for PC!

We’re going to get straight to the point with this one. No dilly-dallying with cute one-liners and puns. But of course, see our original release post for a deeper look at the details.

Getting Started

  • Where do I get it? Head to http://rov.io/absw2forpc, which is Rovio’s shortcode for the Angry Birds Shop. You can see some details about the app there.
    Note: The demo can be downloaded from download.angrybirds.com. It took a day, but that page has now been updated to include Star Wars II.
  • How much does it cost? $4.95 USD, which is the same amount as most of the PC games.
  • Any significant system requirements? It looks like the original basic requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7, 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB RAM, and OpenGL 1.3. So if you’ve downloaded the other games, Star Wars II should probably work as well.
  • How do I download/activate? Well, you have to purchase it from that link above. Make sure the email address you use is valid, since that’s where Rovio will send your activation code and download link. (This info also appears immediately after completing your purchase, but make sure you keep the email nonetheless in case you ever have to reinstall/reactivate.)

Any users having crashing issues should see @iBird’s comment in the forum. This seems to be a rarer issue, and of course AngryBirdsNest assumes no responsibility for any corruption, compromising, etc. as a result of editing the config file. Any user choosing to follow these directions does so at their own risk.

What’s Included

  • Pretty much everything! All 80 normal levels in Naboo Invasion and Escape to Tatooine, all “Treasure Map” side quests, and all Reward Chapter levels. Please note that not all Reward Chapter levels can be unlocked via normal gameplay at this time. See our Star Wars II Characters Guide for more information.
  • Achievements! Yes indeed, PC users can swing away at all the in-game achievements, which unlock Bird Credits and Character Swaps. Which reminds me…
  • Bird Credits and Character Swaps! Sorry, no TELEPOD technology for PC users, which was expected from Hasbro’s page. Also, no in-app purchasing system exists for buying additional Bird Credits.
  • Since there is no purchasing of Bird Credits, Rovio added a “Credit Generator” of sorts. You earn Credits by starring any particular level. For example, in Naboo Invasion, the 1st star is worth 10, 2nd is worth 20, and 3rd is worth 60 the first time you earn the star. Each additional time you earn the star, they are worth 5, 10, and 15 respectively. A more complete outline:
    • Naboo Invasion: 10/20/60 first time a star is earned, 5/10/15 each additional time.
    • Escape to Tatooine: 20/50/100 first time, 5/10/15 each additional time.
    • Reward Chapter: 20/50/100 first time, 5/10/15 each additional time.
  • First and foremost, we explain all of this in far more detail in our original release post. Please consult that for more information.
  • All Angry Birds Star Wars II 3-star walkthrough videos are live. This will also include Hidden Bonus Boxes, Treasure Maps, and much more.
  • Compete with the best players in the world by entering your scores on our Angry Birds Star Wars II leaderboard. For the first time ever in a mobile app, ALL SCORES ARE VALID. This includes scores obtained with TELEPODs and Character Swaps. However, please explain what characters you used on the walkthrough pages.
  • Hunting for hidden bonus boxes? Check out our complete boxes guide that shows their locations and how to obtain them.
  • Need more info about the plethora of characters in Star Wars II? See our Complete Characters Guide!

How is it then possible to unlock all the levels in reward chapter when you can´t purchase bird coins?

By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

@bad-piggies-2 You earn them in-game, and therefore can purchase Character Swaps from Watto’s Shop.

But can really all character levels be unlocked in this version then?

There’s plenty of discussion about this in the forum, in the TELEPODs post, and in the Characters Guide.

When you complete any level at first time, you will get 90 coins. When you complete that level at second time, you will get 30 coins. (coins generator)

If I get what you mean properly, you get no credits for gathering stars on the mobile version of ABSW2. The only ways to get credits on the mobile version is in-app purchases or achievements.

Not quite. You earn coins for various achievements.

That’s great its on PC now….probably won’t be long before its on the Mac.

I did have Angry Birds Star Wars II on my Nexus 7 and played it for a bit to get used to it, then I have taken it off as I’m going to wait for it to come on the Mac for better concentration when playing it. I’m use to playing Angry Birds original, seasons and Space on the tablet though.

Slim,

I have bought all games offered for PC’s and have just tried to download Star Wars 2, but it causes Windows to stop working. Says it will notify me if a solution is found. Any idea what might be going on and how to fix it? Never have had a download problem with any of them before.

Thanks for your help,

@Barbbjb Have you tried the forum link included in the post?

Thanks Slim, I clicked on the @iBirds part instead of “in this forum” part, so now I see the fix. I’ll try it, if I don’t screw it up first.

Thanks again,

Barbbjb

By Robert

tried the fix and the comp wont let me save it, so still no star wars 2

By Jimmy

the game must be installed in other Hard-drive, NOT C drive… and the game should be closed

Rank: Champion with 3315 points
By Barbbjb (@barbbjb)

Sorry Jimmy, but would you mind telling me what you mean by “the game should be closed”? I’m just one small step above idiot stage when it comes to the technical part of computers.

Avatar of RazorbloodRank: Well Traveled with 1795 points

The game should be closed = The game shouldn’t be running.

If you don’t understand that then I don’t know how to explain it so you do.

Rank: Champion with 3315 points

You need do nothing more than you have. I assumed if you were just installing that it wouldn’t be running anyway. Thanks for your reply.

@Barbbjb, have same problem here. Sent email to Rovio 24 hrs ago and ticket is still waiting to be assigned to a tech. Sigh. Last two updates have absolutely killed me. Now I see post from Slim re: this issue and am on my way to check it out. Thanks for posting so I didn’t have to whine, again!

By James

Hi I’m just new to this site. I just want to ask the use of ENTER UNLOCK Code in the settings menu? I’ve purchased an activation key and already activated the game. I re-entered my activation key in the said menu but its says Invalid Code.

Rank: Sling God with 27520 points

Those codes are generally awarded by Rovio and unlock items in-game (such as Character Swap or other Power Up uses).

I just bought the full version and started playing. WOW! The graphics are amazing as always and there’s so much new stuff! :D So far I’ve been just playing, haven’t used swaps yet. Actually I’m a bit lost with the game at the moment, ’cause of the new birds and everything :D

its not on windows 8 but it is a pc

Rank: Sling God with 27520 points
By AMslimfordy (@amslimfordy)

Windows 8 is a completely different beast. Any games for Win8 will have to be made available via the Windows Store, which takes exceptionally more work. Rovio has not said anything about SW2 coming to Win8.

Rank: Master Slinger with 5590 points

According to rovio support team the PC games from the angry birds shop works fine on windows 8.

Not all games. We have heard several reports of issues, which is why Rovio’s site says Windows XP/Vista/7.

Rank: Champion with 3880 points
By iBird (@ibird)

Actually, All games (including AB) which are compatible with Windows 7, can run on Windows 8 without any problems. Both OS are almost same.
Some users have problems with AB on windows 8, because they don’t update or install Video Card drivers after upgrading OS.

I can run all AB games on Both – Windows 8 and 8.1

I followed the instructions in the forum – replace last line in config.lua with this line:
“renderer = { “gl”, “gl1″, “gles1″, “gles2″ }” & game is not crashing anymore! thx for this

Weird. It’s there for me. I even downloaded it. I guess that page is different for different countries. Doesn’t seem like it would be but I guess it is.

Did you try refreshing the page? I originally found it on an iPod but when I went back there on the computer it wasn’t there and I had to refresh the page to get it to appear.

Great to see Angry birds Star Wars 2 on P.C nice to see that Rovio has included Achievements in the Angry birds Star Wars 2.

By Ritchie

okay now i am really enjoying this game. 1 question, is it worth rushing through all the stages now, OR waiting for a new level set, like the 72 Stars {we have 66 in PC} & extra rewards characters. but while i think about that, i’m going to buy the Permanent Darth characters because they’re awesome. also Anakin Episode 3 which is very good too for the Pork Side level 2 group. i have all the stars {again} in the normal stages, but i ended with swaps because i wasn’t going through all the stress of dealing with the stages with the original characters again. on my tablet, only 1 stage is boosted, all others was hit with stress.

By Kevin

I tried downloading Angry Birds SW II and only came up with a problem. My computer tells me that there is a Config.lua problem. I uninstalled the game and retried an install and the same thing happened. I followed the email from Rovio and went to the download site that they sent and again it happened. I cant get past the lucasart screen. Help!

@amslimfordy “Naboo Invasion: 10/20/60 first time a star is earned, 5/10/15 each additional time” each additional time means as many times i want to earn coins?

Will this process be applied to future episodes?
