I cant get my game to work on the internet, when i tried to sign on first it didnt work so i got the poatch. then after i got the patch when i try to play in the zone the computer brings up a message saying that the game isnt installed on my computer. I have reinstalled twice and it doesnt work. Any ideas on what to do?

Are you using just Galactic Battlegrounds or do you have the Clone Campaign as well? If you don't have the CC then the problem might be that you're attempting to join a CC game without the expansion...

Have you tried playing multi-player off the Zone (say with a friend)? If not, you might want to try that to find out whether the problem you're having is with the Zone or something more local.

are you using the newest patch to come out or the original patch?

He's playing on Galactic Battlegrounds, not the Clone Campaigns. The newest patch wouldn't work for him.

and that is why i asked the question. If they dont have the original patch, they wont be able to play.

Sometimes it always helps to actually READ the instructions.

Once you have installed V1.1 for Galactic Battlegrounds, you MUST play at least 1 game for the patch to work. Then, you can re-enter the zone and continue to play as normal.

Have you tried playing non-Zone online games (person to person)?

ok.... a couple of things.


Is the game on a different drive? C or D drive... however your PC is set up.

Or, is the copy you have a warez one? If so, you need to buy the game as the patch wont work and it wont work on the zone either.

No, i havent played a person to person game b.c none of my firends have the game so i dont know if that would work. Also, im not up to date with my computer terms, what is warez again?

A Warez is a copy of the game...in other words, you havent actually bought it from a store/online.

I do suggest maybe either downloading the patch again, I do remember people having problems with the 1.1 patch for SWGB and they downloaded it again from a different host and that did the trick.

Or a full re-install again.

I'll be happy to test it for you in a game (don't even have to play the game out, just see if we can get it going). Send me a Personal Message if you're interested. Then at least we can narrow down the possible problems.
