Wine is a fickle beast and whoever created the wrapper probably didn't test every option for BF1.  I've only tested all those flags on Windows.
SWBF1 Modding / Re: How do you rename a unit

If it's for the main game, you need a Core.lvl Tool that can compile for the main game.

If it's for a custom map, BFBuilder has an edit_localization batch that should suit.  You just need to find the key for cis_inf_super_battledroid (or whatever that odf is)
Released Maps and Mods / 2023 SWBF1 Side Builders
January 22, 2023, 05:16:19 PM
I was requested to update the Side Builders and here they are. Everything should already be set up for 1.2 and this also includes munging for the side FPMs which I don't believe has been included before.

The munger does every side, please read the readme on how to disable one side from being munged.

Long live BF1!;sa=view;down=1621

Rather than recreating, just import the stock maps and then use ZE to modify them.
Please make sure to read the download notes first, they answer very common questions.
The answer is simpler than you're making it out to be.

The easiest way I believe would be to remove imp_droid_probe from the stock Hoth mission.  Searching "mission.lvl builder" should bring it up.  The one on the site is reasonably easy to use and would allow you to use the stock Hoth level.  It'd probably break online compatibility.
The other answer that nobody has really gotten to is to figure out why it's crashing.  I see the REQs listed correctly but the devs might have used a different model that's compatible with the game, or something else.

There are SWBF2 map conversions on here but that's not the correct answer to the problem you're experiencing and adding a whole other level of complexity.

Star Wars Battlefront (2004 Original) / Re: SWBFspy help

Also it's not just the exe, there's a whole package of files that include shell.lvl and common.lvl that need replaced.  Replacing the exe only will cause a black screen.
Despite being labeled "Direct Connect", the implementation in BF1 was reliant on the Gamespy Master Server still.
He's from Ukraine, and I'm sure most of the world is well-aware of the situation there.

He has more important things to think about than modding.
Judging by that Wine bug log, it seems like some call when loading is not being handled by Wine correctly, which no mod is going to fix.
That CPU stuff doesn't impact BF1.  The jerky physics is tied to framerate and always has been.  Other behavioral differences are just the AI controller and the quirks of a game from 2004.  The stuff you've observed was there long before Spectre fixes became a thing.

For the gunships crashing: The AI logic is not perfect.  Once again, 2004.  The flyers follow the same pathing as ground units except where specified (unless Geo has flight specific paths, which it could).
Another thing is that the AI never performs a check for collisions, the AI picks a path and takes it.  If the other gunship happens to be there, then RIP.  You can observe the same behavior with the ATTEs.  They just don't crash when they run into each other.
There was no CPU bug patched.  The difficulty on PC was increased on purpose by Pandemic between 1.0 and 1.1 and I think even 1.1 to 1.2 (which the Steam version kept the same from my testing).

Like Unit 33 said, there's strategies to beat it.  It's by no means impossible.

I played Cloud City and had a ton of fun, can't wait to try the rest!  Thanks Napseeker!

Dantooine: Jedi Enclave is a port to Star Wars Battlefront (2004) of a location of the same name from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003).  The map is iconic in that it's where the player "officially" starts their journey to become a Jedi.

This is a release version (1.1) of Dark_Phantom's conversion of Dantooine: Jedi Enclave (dpk02). Both GCW and CW versions work correctly.  There are no custom sides. Just extract the zip and place the DPK02 folder in your Addon directory for SWBF1.

Bugs fixed in 1.1 (vs 1.0):
Allow ordnance to go through the invisible roof (Recon droids now work where appropriate in the roundabout and the Landing Zone)

SWBF1 Modding / Re: Tatooine: Dune Sea Exchange [WIP]

I love this map, fast pace and hectic even with the limited amount of units on the field - you're never out of the action.

Thanks for another great map Giftheck!
