Here's a solution for all those with the Problem that the Server try's to start but shut's down after the 10 s AND with a German Windows running!

In the Battlefront Program Folder under ..\DATA\_LVL_PC\Common is a folder ENG.
Rename it to GER (if you've got a german windows)

Same under ..\DATA\_LVL_PC\Shell

After that the Server will start.

it is much easier to use the commandline parameter /lang...so if you have a foreign language you can edit the "battlefront server.ini" file and add a /lang ENG at the end of the APP_COMMAND_LINE_BASIC line. For the client this "fix" works too by editing the shortcut.
Much more professional then just renaming ;).
