Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why do certain Conversion Pack maps keep crashing?

Remember that this is a work in-progress, and there's 140+ different configurations when you take the number of maps x the number of modes x the number of eras. We're working to fix every crash we can, but it takes time.

Also, use these video settings if your machine is below a 3.0ghz processor, less than 768mb ram, and less than a 256mb graphics card.
Lighting Quality: Medium (very important)
Water Quality: Medium or better

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When is version [x] going to be released?

1.9.1 Public Release (full install) - hoping for July/Aug
-Bugfixes. Every crash should be gone, all HUD bugs fixed
-Space Endor
-Rebuilt Classic Conquest **COMPLETE
-Sounds working right on all levels
-KotOR era
-Restoring of missing modes (like Hunt on Dagobah)**COMPLETE
-Updated Shell/ingame consoles. Thanks to [RDH]Zerted
-KotOR era fully implemented
-Hero CTF (1-Flag CTF with Jedi/Sith only)
-LAST side re-work. Mostly visual stuff, but the award weapon bug/Pistol-Fusion Cutter bug will be dealt with

1.9.5 Public Release (patch) - hoping for Sept/Oct
-Additional Bugfixes
-Updating of current units to use the same features as the Unofficial 1.2 Patch (weapons, effects) so that it matches his mod *Pending RepSharpShooter's permission

2.0 FINAL Public Release (full install) - hoping for Oct/Nov
-All bugfixes completed (100% stable)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What's NOT gonna happen?
-More new modes. Hero CTF is it
-Adding existing modes to maps. They already have enough modes
-New heroes. We have tons already. *Aside from a few already in planning like Greedo
-New clone legions. Same as above
-New maps. The pack has enough as is
-Restoring cut maps. *If* they get restored, that's what the bonus map pack will be for

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What's gonna be available for modders?
-Release of ALL assets after 2.0 is released (on condition that nobody tries to continue the pack)
-In-shell coded modes (thanks to [RDH]Zerted). Things like BFX mode, +123 mode, etc will be there for modders to make their mods compatible with the Unofficial 1.2 Patch & the Convo Pack

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yep, browse to \Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\v1.3patch and run menu.bat. Hit enter once and then choose from the menu choices.

Teancum's first post says that new modes will not be added.

There are a few maps like that out there, such as that "Death Star Episode Four" map that has Vader, Ben Kenobi, Leia, and Han as playable units. Truth be told, not many people really like that idea. It's not changing much from the stock map.

No, you're not doing anything wrong by asking. Questions can be right or wrong, but asking them isn't.

So, on that note, a question of my own: Where can I find the 2.0 KotOR heros assets?

Before you redirect me to that "Convo Pack Assets" thread, I ought to refine my question. I know there's a link. I also know that it doesn't work and that you have to manually search for them.

So, where do I search and what do I search for? Filefront is somewhat confusing to me.

Hi,

I have a complex question I think.

The thing is, I have the original SWBF2 game for PS2 and for PC, but my PC is old and I have a lot of lag and crash so I want to ask if it is possible to play this mod on the PS2 version of the game? By making a backup and playing using swap magic.

If it's possible please tell me, even if you only have theories about it.

I really love this mod and I want to play it nice and smooth on the PS2.

I really apreciate your help!

Thanks

Its possible but you need the source and a lot more to get it on the PS2 and I doubt Tean will make a PS2 version. Read more here.

Ok, thank you for the information!

:( I guess I have to stick with the regular BF2 on the PS2, because it's impossible for me to play it on this PC.

He was also added as the hero on Methlyn in the 2.2 patch update. There's nothing you can do to enable his use on other maps in the Conversion Pack, though.
