Problems with Dark Times mod

Post by geogzm »

First and foremost, apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong section, place, or even website - I'm new to Battlefront 2 mods :v

I've installed the Dark Times mod over a v1.3 patched version of the game and while some maps work for Instant Action, there's a lot of errors that lead me to believe I haven't quite installed the mod properly. I primarily wanted to play galactic conquest, which crashes instantly, and there are several glitchy bits of text - googling around doesn't show anyone else who had a similar problem, so I'm wondering what it is I've done wrong. Here's a picture of what I'm seeing:

This is the CD version of the game however, and I was wondering if buying the steam copy would make any difference? I don't mind re-buying a game that I've had laying around for years for the galactic conquest :v

To see the map names (and fix a number of other bugs) make sure you have the latest official game patch installed.

search for v1.1 patch. If you don't have this patch the version number in the upper right corner says version 1.0

Just to clarify, you'll have issues with many different mods' localization without the 1.1 patch installed. You can find your appropriate link here (if you're US English, you're probably using the domestic version):

I can't get the game to work now that I installed the mod, it gets past the boot screen and then crashes, I don't know what to do anymore, and am beginning to think this mod is just a bust...
