Download (http://starwarsbattlefront.filefront.com/file/Unofficial_Star_Wars_Battlefront_II_v12_Patch;8759 7)

To install, run installer; to uninstall, run uninstaller on start menu. If you don't like the hud, run GET_RID_OF_HUD.bat in Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\DATA\ No need to move lvls, it won't delete your original lvls, it will rename them out of the way. You can still use Zerted's common.lvl for freecam, an ingame.lvl with fakeconsole is on the way (60% done).

Note: if you downloaded this before Saturday March 8, 2008 @ 10:45 A.M EST, please download THIS (http://files.filefront.com/REP1stpersonzip/;9777019;/fileinfo.html) and paste these two lvl's in Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\DATA\FPM\REP\ Thank you!



Abstract:

This "patch" (technically is a mod) will overhaul some of the game's assets, while keeping online compatibility with the previous version. This is basically just meant to clean up some of the mess Pandemic left behind as they rushed to get the game out. Some of the main changes are the new hud, new weapons, accurate chunk models, skin fixes, and extra effects (such as environment mapping). Hopefully this will make the game a more enjoyable and immersing experience when playing offline or online (it remains compatible online while still offering a variety of new features for gameplay).


FAQ

Does it work online?
Yes.

How do I install it?
Run the installer exe and make sure the filepath points to your \Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\DATA folder.

Does it work with other mods?
It'll work with mod maps, the Conversion Pack, and possibly the +123. It however will not work with mods similar in nature to BFX.

I hate the hud.
So go to \Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\DATA and run GET_RID_OF_HUD.bat It will revert it back to the original shipped hud. If you change your mind, run RESTORE_HUD.bat in the same place.

Why didn't you add new weapons/units?
That would crash your game online, which is not good. So I was limited to certain things that I could do.

Why didn't you _______?
There are some things that would ruin online compatibility, and others I just didn't have the time to address. Keep in mind that this is a "hobby," and required hundreds of hours on my part to produce.

Hey, could you update this patch so all factions(special soldiers like jet troopers, magna guards etc) are available all the time no matter how many points you earn?

If Im not mistaken, that would make it incompatible with other online players which is one of the main features of the mod.

Ok. So can you at least tell me how to do it. Cause I don't play online so I don't care.
