Question about SWBF 1.2 and 1.3 patches

Postby Fds » Sat Apr 19, 2014 9:54 am

Hi there,

That's my first post here in a very long while :D
I used to play SWBF a lot, with my clan, in 2004/2005 (since release day :D in september 2004, maybe the 21th? don't remember well ^^' ).
I also played in the SWBF2 beta test, and tested the SWBF2 dedicated server before public release (thanks to some pandemic developer ^^' )


Few days ago I read a news about GameSpy closing down, together with the online multiplayer of many games, SWBF1 and 2 included. (actually I discovered later on, to my surprise, that SWBF1 was already not working online).

So, with my clanmates, we came up with the idea of playing a match or 2 before May 31th for giving a proper "farewell" to a game which gave us so much fun, and so many more headaches with all its bugs :D

But while reinstalling the game after a long while I have encountered few problems which i can't remember how i solved back then.


First of all:

- my game is original, CD version, Italian language
- in my file backups i could find up to patch 1.1 italian, but cant find anywhere the italian 1.2 patch.
- looking on google only the 1.2 english patch can be found

When i try to install the 1.2 eng patch on top of the 1.1 ita game it says that im using the wrong update.

Now, i remember 1.3beta patch being english only, and also remember that there was a method for switching language to english for any SWBF1 version.
I just can't remember how.

Does anyone here know?

Or, is there any other solution i could use for having the game updated to 1.2 and 1.3?

Thank you all in advance! :D

The 1.2 patch is a fan made patch, like 1.3. You only need to download 1.3. SWBF2 official patches only go to 1.1.

EDIT: woops youre talking about swbf1.

Here is the 1.2 patch. Scroll down to the bottom for Italian version: http://www.lucasarts.com/support/update ... front.html
