swbf openspy master server patch

http://www.swbfgamers.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=952

this patch will change your swbf gamespy server to openspy server.
(tested for 1.0 client and dedicated, 1.2 client and dedicated)
to install,
1. double click
2. click patch(recommended keep backup checked it will save a backup as battlefront.exe.bak just remove the .bak to restore it)


EDIT
a easier way to install the patch is to put it in same folder as battlefront.exe, run it, click patch, and lastly exit
3. when it says "can not find the file. search the file? click yes
4. browse to where you battlefront.exe is (default is c:program fileslucasartsstar wars battlefrontgamedata)
5.click ok

known bugs
1.0
none
1.2
when you go into lobby, you will hang at loading 100%,
to join a game you have to join, cancel, and join again.
ping is always shown as 9999
server stats are not shown when not using dedicated server tools
1.3
future testing pending

with patcher
some anti viruses may give false positive claiming it is a Trojan horse or a hack tool(they detect that it modifies memory addresses in the battlefront executable which it does modify 8 entries in the client and 10 dedicated server tool these all redirect gamespy to openspy)
-some windows 8 partitions display patcher incorrectly

if you have any problems to report or need help, pm me

note that the bugs you list are with openspy and do not appear to be related to your patcher.

What the heck? Some weird rectangle with a lizard holding a boyonette is blocking my view of the screen, what do I do to fix it?

screenshot?
at the bottom right there should be a exit button(the patcher should be able to be moved by holding left click on it  and moving mouse) or if you can't access them just alt-f4 it

Thanks for this, Wolf! I had a great time on the PLA test server today!

Long live Star Wars Battlefront!  :cheers:

the patcher, you can drag it to the side to read the instructions, and when you have completed and hit exit it should disappear
Peace is a lie, there is only passion          -Fear leads to anger
Through passion, I gain strength              -Anger leads to hate
Through strength, I gain power                -Hate leads to suffering
Through power, I gain victory
Through victory, my chains are broken
The Force shall free me

I would try this out, but I'm thinking perhaps a video tutorial for this would be more effective? Just for the people that can't understand written instructions that well. :P

Just put it into your folder that contains battlefront.exe and run it.  It is that easy.
