Videos and Screen Shots / Old Videos by Phantom
« on: January 04, 2018, 11:01:16 AM »
These are some old videos that I posted on another website - not this one.  It's almost been 5 years, so I finally made them public and re-watched them. - Kamikaze Drop Trooper - this has to be my favorite of the three - Log trap on a test map Battlefront 1 (this one showed up on this website one other time I believe) - Phantom's extra era standard maps (Endor, Hoth, Kamino)
-->Longest video by far.  I intended to do a series, but then there wasn't a whole lot of interest and I quit recording videos for a long stretch.  There is a description underneath.  And you get to listen to my not-so-beautiful voice.
-->Kamino was a dummy map for a different project and I didn't want to re-record it at the time.  That building is a munged asset from Earth: Egypt that I successfully added in place of other objects.  Bespin Sky is also included for a brighter feel (even though Kamino is supposed to be dark and dreary).

SWBF1 Modding / 3 Playable Teams
« on: December 09, 2017, 11:21:37 AM »
Here is a video of 3 playable teams mostly functional in SWBF1.  I tried editing it so you could see what was happening and how it works.

I am using Cheat Engine to make it work, if anyone was curious.

Released Maps and Mods / 6th Unit Spawner
« on: November 25, 2017, 10:31:01 AM »
6th Unit Spawner;sa=view;down=1441

Hello fellow SWBFGamers,
Last time I started a topic, I showed a video of 10 units working.  This is what I was working on before I found out how to make more than 5 units work natively - so I quit working on it.

This is a very basic trainer that you start when you play SWBF1, and whenever you are at the Spawn Select screen, hit the "Insert" button on your keyboard.  A silly noise that says "6th Unit Enabled" will tell you that you have selected the hero unit to spawn as, and then you can hit the "Spawn" button.

Some notes:
1.) You must have Heroes enabled (with a SetHeroClass defined in your .lua if it is a mod map)
2.) You will die once you hit 20 units.  If you try to respawn, you will automatically die.
3.) You cannot switch teams immediately after dying as a hero.
4.) Your name will change to the hero.  So if you were "Dark_Phantom" going in, it will now say "DARTH VADER" or "LUKE SKYWALKER" or whoever when you kill someone.  This does not affect overall kills/deaths/cps.  It's more aesthetic than anything.
5.) Your character will take on whatever attributes that hero has.  Example ->Darth Vader cannot take CPs.  This needs an .odf edit to change, and has nothing to do with this.

I believe that's everything... Have fun!

SWBF1 Modding / More Than 5 Units - Unlocked
« on: November 16, 2017, 05:34:42 PM »
On the eve of the "re-release" of Battlefront 2, I feel that maybe this might be a good time to show that new discoveries are still being found every day in the original Star Wars Battlefront game.  This is not a finished product - there are a few killer bugs I have documented, but you can see for yourselves in this low-quality video that it is possible to have more than 5 units in Battlefront.

Here's some good stuff for you 3d modelers out there (aka, not me).  Andrew Cramer, who helped with VFX for The Force Awakens, released them on his personal website.

SWBF1 Modding / Christmas 2014 Modding Competition!
« on: December 09, 2014, 12:56:49 PM »
You read that right
Christmas 2014 Modding Competition
Perhaps you've been bashed on the head with a brick and you haven't noticed that it's time to get fabulously festive.

So, to continue our vague tradition of holding thematic modding competitions we would like you modders to make a mod about… Christmas or generic winter festivity (whatever floats your boat).

We'd like to keep it pretty open, so it could be a mod of any sort really… as long as it's festive.
The deadline shall be somewhere in January, as I don't really expect anyone to pull off a groovy mod before Christmas, as you're all probably busy (or will be) drowning in eggnog.

Entrants will probably receive some kind of shiny award with the winner getting an even shinier one.

In case you thought this looked familiar, above this line was the post last year.  And I thought it was good enough to quote from Unit 33 :)

Anyway, the winner will most likely be decided by a poll or something, and not me, because I've already started working on something.  Don't think of it as a stress... think of it as one way to celebrate the holidays!  So many assets are floating around here as well as creative modders who may be willing to help.  So, get on your sleigh and get going!  Please post to participate.

Requests / Requesting Beta Testers
« on: April 30, 2014, 10:06:44 AM »
I need 2 people to test a map I'm working on and tell me a few things:

1.) How the map "feels"

2.) Noticable bugs

3.) Things that need improved.

Post here, and later on I will send you the map to try out.

General / Book thread
« on: March 27, 2014, 10:03:14 PM »
Post here a good book you've read.
The next person to post should post something about a book before, even if they have never heard of it (which means go to google and search the book and post something).  Learn something from the experience :)
*Note: if there is another book thread, I'm sorry.  Unit 33 wanted a book thread.

George Orwell's 1984.  I thought it was a good book.  So many references in it are used today.

GameRanger, Tunngle and Internet / Mod Map Server 3/30
« on: March 23, 2014, 11:44:59 AM »
I can set this up next weekend also with a little bit more planning.

It's been a while since I've set up a mod map server so please bear with me.  Please say some maps you would like to see and I will try to accommodate them.

Released Maps and Mods / Mandalorian Wars: Beta 1 Release
« on: October 25, 2013, 11:16:39 AM »
Welcome to Mandalorian Wars Beta 1 official release!
Mandalorian Wars - Era Mod by Dark_Phantom - Public Beta 1

This is a preliminary version of my third era mod, Mandalorian Wars.  It is a mod that utilizes a third era button and allows you to play as the Mandalorians against any one of the four teams at random.

This mod is only implemented for Single Player at this point.  For multiplayer, the randomizer has got to be deactivated and a more efficient route of implementing host ability to choose what side they want and for clients to be able to go along with that.  It will be complicated to implement.

To install:
Merge the Gamedata folder with your Gamedata folder in the Star Wars Battlefront folder you wish to install in.  I believe that everything is in the spot they need to be for it to be functional just by merging.  If you don't merge, just copy and paste the UNIV folder into Gamedata, replace the mission.lvl (back up your original, but I left stock missions intact so it should be ok) and replace the shell (I left an original shell in there for you just in case).

There are many bugs in this mod.  Hoth is non-functional in Mandalorian Wars so far (working on it).  A couple other maps crash on start (please tell me so I can fix them).  Sometimes locals do not spawn, sometimes they do.
You can only play one Mandalorian Wars mission at a time.  Therefore, you cannot have 2 missions of UNIVmando in your Instant Action queue.  The second one will crash on start.  I have yet to figure out this bug.  It makes me angry. >:[

As a bonus, Hoth and Endor are now playable in Clone Wars and Kamino is now playable in Galactic Civil War.  Geonosis will be finished... sometime.


Pandemic-Star Wars Battlefront and Stock Assets
Psych0fred-stock lua scripts (without them, I would have had to go with my flawed reconstructions)

Sereja- Westar-34 pistol,

ggctuk - port of ATRT from BF2

If I forgot anyone, please, don't hesitate to tell me and their name will be added to this list.

Please tell me any bugs you notice, and I am also looking for people to help me with certain respects of the mod that I can no longer do myself.  Like skinning.  I need more variety with the skins.  There are other things that need done, and if you tell me something you want to do, I can accommodate.

Tech Support / Hard Drive crashes
« on: October 23, 2013, 04:39:25 PM »
Does anyone have any suggestions for random hard drive crashes?  I get a Blue Screen of Death after a random freeze (really completely random, no pattern)  :o  I know it is my hard drive because after it crashes, my Hard Drive no longer registers to my computer (well, it kind of does.  In BIOS settings it "exists" and has it's name and everything.  When it loads, it states "No Hard Drive found, Please insert boot disk."

If I wait before turning my comp back on, it is usually fine.  But it crashes at the most inopportune times.  I am happy though that I have been printing off school papers beforehand so I'm not too worried about the waiting part.  I imaged my hard drive after this happened the first time.  I have also concluded that this is not caused by a virus because all my data still exists and I ran virus scanners and they all turned out good, and this is not a consistent problem yet.

Toshiba C655 laptop
Windows 7 Home
500 GB HDD
4 GB RAM (I also use a flash drive to get 4 more GB out of it)
Bought in 2010

Any suggestions?  Just get a new hard drive?  Special tricks that I don't know about even after ripping the darn thing apart last month (no loose cords or wires)?  New computer (it's 3 years old... but that is forever in computer years)?  I hate to dish out that kind of money but I'm a college student who kind of needs his laptop to write papers at least.   ;)

I have also considered just taking a portable jump drive or external HDD and keeping that in a safe place and uploading an operating system on it, and when my HD dies I can still do the essentials (the bare essentials, like check my email).  I can probably partition off some of my external hard drive and dedicate it to my copy of Windows 98 that I have somewhere.

Videos and Screen Shots / Log Trap in SWBF
« on: September 30, 2013, 01:03:50 PM »
Watch the log trap from the Endor assets at work in this video!  You can see this trap on Endor if you ever watched the demo video by GamertagTowellie.

Note: it is unlisted right now so you have to use this link.

Another note:  This video was made due to the fact I have never seen anyone actually use this in BF.  If anyone has other than the demos, please show me.  Thanks!
