Install issues conversion pack 2 (windows 7)

Postby Pyros24 » Fri Sep 17, 2010 10:32 am

Hi all,
i'm new here and i've tried to find an answer to my problem via google etc but no go.

I am installing swbf pack first I tried to install it to my steam version of SWBF2 (clean install) it installed but no change to game and 1.3 didn't look like it installed, I bought a new none steam version clean install etc same issue, i'm thinking it may be an issue with my system
windows 7 64.

What i've tried
1)Clean installs
2)Double and tripple check of install location
3)Redownload of pack
4)DVD version of SBF2 its already 1.1

The error I get when I manually run the patch manually is this


C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\v1.3patch>men
u

Checking Windows XP
ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.
Checking Windows Vista 32bit
ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.
Checking Windows Vista 64bit
You should have two registry key errors above this line. You can safly ignore t
hem.
\LucasArts\Star was unexpected at this time.

C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\v1.3patch>

Try this version of the 1.3 patch. Works with Windows 7...

Hello, I'm new to the site. I just downloaded the Conversion pack 2.0 and 2.2 mods. A Huge thank you to the team that developed this mod. They did a great job, I used to dream of playing on maps from the first Battlefront with the added gameplay elements of the sequel.

When I launched the game after Installing 2.0 (before 2.2) I could see and use the new maps that were added but not the new modes or factions. After reading the readme included with the download I followed the advice as follows:


I installed the Pack fully, but I can’t see the KotOR era or any new game modes.

There is a small chance that the 1.3 Patch installed incorrectly. You should proceed to the Gametoast Conversion Pac forum (viewforum.php?f=39) and seek support there. In the meantime, there are backups of the files you need to make the new era and new gamemodes appear in GameData\backups. Copy all three files from there (ingame.lvl, shell.lvl, and common.lvl), go to your Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\DATA\_LVL_PC folder, and paste them in there (allow overwriting).


I followed the directions and copied over the three files, and the new factions and modes showed up after that. I then installed 2.2 with no issue, my question is after copying "ingame.lvl, shell.lvl, and common.lvl" to the appropriate folder is there anything else I need to do to make sure the mod runs fine? Do I need to reinstall it to make sure 1.3 was correctly installed? Or are the steps I took in transferring the backup files the equivalent to reinstalling the mod?

Thanks so much!

Don't worry about following those specific directions. Install the version of the 1.3 patch linked to by AceMastermind two posts above. It uses both a more recent version and an easier-to-manage installer.
