How to:Install BETA 1.3 and keep 1.2 patch installed.

Postby Ace_Azzameen_5 » Sun Jul 24, 2005 7:34 pm

It's Simple!

1.Open C:\program files\lucasarts\star wars battlefront\gamedata*
2.Right Click on 'Battlefront.exe' and then click rename. Type in a name of your choice. 'Battlefront1.2' is my suggestion.
3.Download and install patch 1.3
4.Right click the renamed battlefront.exe and create a shortcut to place on your desktop.
5.To start version 1.3, start swbf normally. To play v1.2, use the new shortcut.

*If installed SWBF in a different place, you probably know what to do . . .

Depends on the content and quality of posts... in this case I'd say yes definately spam.

Holding off on 1.3 Beta, tried it once and can live without it until:

1. 1.3 full comes out or
2. SWBF2 comes out

Guess I'll be waiting until November 1st then! :)

Yes, but this allows you to install both. Use 1.2 for multiplayer, and 1.3 for free camera. 1.3 is perfect(it appears to be) in single player.

On top of that, I use the following configuration:

SWBattlefront.exe (my cracked 1.2)
SWBattlefront1.2.exe (For legal purposes)
SWBattlefront1.3.exe (for the free camera)

Here is my Response to Teacums post.

I removed it from the thread 'cause I'm not sure if its againts forum rules or not and it just generally messed up the thread, didn't really fit in.

FYI Teacum, I've severe doubts that SWBattlefront1.2.exe will help you legally, and is just wasting space. What you want is your cds and a receipt.

I agree with you on that issue. BTW, anyone figured out how to run it a the same time? ( i know, wondering why. this method will be great for testing things like mp mods and such when you don't have anyone to join your server.)

The 1.3 rocks, but i doubt thet the full will ever come out, with the release of SW:BFII on monday. But the Jedis don't deflect you shots, which is kinda bad and good, since you get rid of the fact that they are blocking rockets, but the can't block the othere shots, which just looks stupid!

It's a bummer, but 1.3 beta was never released for mac, because it was never an official patch.
