Link was bad from website move--I just fixed it. Let us know if you find more
The second link in DPs post points to a google drive, and I don't believe I have it. You could PM Red if you need it.

Do we know if they'll ever fix the random crashes and server browser freezes? I hope they will, since the first match I joined in today crashed after the game finished. It says I lost connection to the host, so I don't know if it was my game crashing or if the Host crashed?

Right, and port 443 is actually the HTTPS port (generally).
I have to wonder if it's trying to make a secure connection over that port and failing.
Edit: @Stonecold, SWBF1 used to run on ports like 3650 - idk if they changed that or not, but maybe somebody should watch in wireshark to see if they still use those ports. A VPS has all the port forwarding stuff open so there's less issues.

Ok, to start, here's almost the exact batch file I'm using:It runs an automatic restarter, but shouldn't be too relevant.
I've attached below some snips, the one is just showing that after I start up the server, steam is running, logged in, etc. The second one is just showing everything - I have the default folder with no mods running Mods@SWBFgamers.com. Double server attempt folder is just the steam folder copied onto the desktop. This one is running the BOBserver and has some mods in there, so I know both methods work.
I tried GOG last night on Led's VPS using the same method and it didn't work right. Galaxy seemed to be running but it didn't show up in the list. I'm not sure if there's extra configuration in Steam or whether the DRM actually makes it work correctly. However, it isn't confined to folders. One trick that maybe people could try is running the game normally, alt-tabbing, then using the batch file, but for a VPS with no graphics card this may not work.
I may have to see what my server is doing differently, but it's just a standard setup from NFO that was running a Minecraft server and SWBFspy servers.

Interesting. So I bought the game on a second account as well so that I could play and host at the same time. Are you logged into Steam when you do this? I am running it off my VPS, with the batch file in the same folder as Battlefront.exe, and Steam is running and logged in to the account I bought it on. I tried doing it multiple ways in offline mode and trying to run it on both machines, and it just didn't work.
If that doesn't help, I can take some screenshots and give insight to my setup.

SWBF1 had disk based DRM. SWBF2 doesn't.

Sadly, I think that will never happen due to the DRM. There is no one left to officially remove it.
