Hi all!

Havent seen any topics on this, but a redditor by the name of Anthony has released a compilation of Battlefront II, containing several OG Battlefront maps, Xbox DLC heroes, content from Renegade and Elite Squsdron.

I'll post the text (and link to the post) below, which contaib detailed ibformation about the projext, as well as a link to the project's discord where you can get the .iso file.

I've been playing this on the PPSSPP emulator on my cheapo 10" Samsung Tab A, and the game runs extremely smoothly and I have been greatly enjoying it. Hoping to get the word out, and enxourage Anthony to keep it up. As far as I know, he's well underway with version 9.

"Greetings Reddit PSP users!

I am here to show off and share a project that I have been working on for many years. I have recently been making incredible progress and have made a new release, ready to be enjoyed by the public!

So what is this? Good question.

This is the a gigantic mod for the PSP version of Star Wars Battlefront II that completely rebuilds and overhauls the entire game.

Some of the features include, but not limited to:

All 2004 Battlefront 1 levels except for Mos Eisley, Yavin Temple, and Endor (These levels already exist in BF2)

All 2005 Battlefront 2 levels except for Utapau (Utapau became seriously broken and hasn't been fixed yet)

A few levels converted from Elite & Renegade Squadron

A few levels converted from PC mod maps

A few original levels from Pandemic Studios that were never available in any official version of a Battlefront game

A command console inside the pause menu that does many things such as change scores, abilities, and character skins

A new "External Settings" feature that allows the user to change things that can't be changed from within the game

Lots of alternative skins for rebels, clones, empire, and droids, found inside the command console

Improved instant action menu, now bigger and wider to fix the screen and show more items in the list

New heroes such as Assajj Ventress from the Xbox DLC

New characters such as the real Magnaguard as seen in Revenge of the Sith

New more accurate weapon models

The ability to get more than 10 bots per team, up to 16 or 32, this is awesome on high end phones but can lag a real PSP pretty badly

New HUD that improves visibility during gameplay, all the stuff on the screen has been adjusted to the edges of the screen

Improved graphics for many things such as levels, characters, and vehicles

List of all the cool new hunt modes:

BF2 Coruscant: Anakin with clone troopers vs jedi padawans

BF2 Death Star: Ben, Leia, Luke, Chewbacca, & Han vs storm troopers

BF2 Endor: Scout troopers vs Ewoks

BF2 Felucia: assault droids vs Acklay

BF2 Geonosis: clone marksman vs Geonosians

BF2 Hoth: Wampas vs rebel infantry

BF1 & BF2 Kamino: clone infantry vs imperial infantry and everyone has jetpacks

BF2 Kashyyyk: Wookiees vs basic battle droids or storm troopers

BF1 Naboo Plains: Gungans with giant shield bubble vs basic battle droids

BF1 & BF2 Naboo Theed: Gungans vs storm troopers or basic battle droids, both with vehicles

BF1 Dune Sea: Ben & Luke vs Tuskens

BF2 Mos Eisley: Ben & Luke vs Tuskens & Jawas

BF2 Jabba's Palace (era C) Gamorreans vs Yoda, Windu, Anakin, Aayla, Mundi, & Obiwan

BF2 Jabba's Palace (era G) Gamorreans vs Chewbacca, Han, Luke, Ben & Leia

Advantages of playing this mod on a high end phone or PC:

Enjoy 32 AI per team all the time without lag

Enjoy sharper fonts

Enjoy sharper main menu and sharper icons

Enjoy better frame rate

The bad news, some things have become seriously broken during development and have not been restored yet:

Galactic Conquest

What's coming in the future, and when? I plan to release another updated version of this mod in the summer of 2021. Some of the plans include but not limited to:

More new heroes such as:

Captain Rex with dual pistols

Cad Bane with dual pistols and jet thrusters on his legs

Ahsoka Tano

Savage Opress


Multiple variations of the X brothers

Rogue One content such as Jyn & Krennic with custom gun models

Mandalorian content such as Din & Cara Dune with custom gun models

More existing game modes and new game modes such as:

Vehicle deatchmatch (ground vehicles on ground levels)

Starfighter deatchmatch (flyers on ground levels)

More levels ported from Elite Squadron and Renegade Squadron such as:




Boz Pity

Issues with the current version:

Some levels lag bad on a real PSP, even with low AI count, notably Vjun and BF2 Coruscant

Sometimes but not often jedi/sith heroes will bug out and their attacks stop working, this is due to animation pools getting hogged up by the Maganguard

A few levels might crash randomly during gameplay, notably BF1 Theed and BF1 Citadel

Some levels have really heavy fog, this is required to prevent more lag and more crashes

Missile lock works but the visual indicator is broken, just press lock on and wait a few seconds, fire, and the missile should seek your target

While playing as the Magnaguard, you cannot press yes or no on the hero prompt, this is because the Magnaguard works like a hero and the game doesn't know how to select hero while using a hero

Downloading and installing:

To stay within the rules, I cannot share the entire game ISO as that would be considered piracy. Personally, I use Discord as the home for my project but I won't post that either as it could be considered advertising. For Reddit, I have prepared a folder with all the edited game files. This is not hard to install. All you have to do is obtain your own original Battlefront 2 ISO, unpack it, replace the folder/files, then repack your ISO and play. Also included in this download are two documents. One document is a hero chart that tells you which heroes are available on every level and era. The other document contains instructions on how to modify the "External Settings" as mentioned at the top of this page.

Step 1: Download and unpack this:

Step 2: Unpack your original Battlefront 2 ISO

Step 3: Browse to \PSP_GAME\USRDIR\data\ and delete the _LVL_PSP folder

Step 4: Copy the _LVL_PSP folder from the download and paste it inside \PSP_GAME\USRDIR\data\

Step 5: Repack the game ISO

Step 6: Transfer the new ISO to your device and play!

DO NOT MIX/COMBINE THE _LVL_PSP FOLDERS! You must delete the old one then paste the new one!

Have fun!

Please provide feedback, negative or positive is welcomed!

Please feel free to suggest ideas for the future like game modes, characters, etc.

Edit at 3/14/2021, 1:05 PM It seems okay to post Discord links. This is the home for my projects and a few other Battlefront related projects some other people have going. For example, I also have a similar project going on for the PS2 version of BF2 and a few other guys have large scale similar mods for the Xbox version. At this Discord server, you can talk with many other people, get help with setting up mods, get downloads as they are posted, see what's in progress for future versions. This is also the best way to contact me for whatever reason.

Battlefront's release coincided with the DVD release, I recall. Also, incidentally, 9-21 is my birthday. So that was a memorable day.

I have that copy of Battlefront still for the original Xbox, and it has logged some hours. Recently started playing on PC, and just very recently played my first online match of the original Battlefront.

I do prefer the original to the second, and am extremely excited for DICE's reboot. Huge gamer, big Star Wars fan.

Hello and look forward to getting some Battlefront in with you guys.
