Since then many emulators have come and gone with a few staying around; CUEmu, ProjectSWG, and SWGEmu being the most notable. While these emulators are in varying states of completion, they do lack one thing that could help them perfect the true SWG experience they desire to recreate: original source code and/or documentation. As a result of SOE's sale to an investment firm, some within the SWG fandom have started a petition seeking an official release of the SWG server, client, and tool source code.
Also of note, it seems that a 2010 version of the development tools, client, and pdb files for the game were leaked at some point online. Unsubstantiated rumors go on to suggest that persons unknown have a copy of the source code for the server, clients, and tools.
