Watch this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52iIELRthMU :)
I think i'll add this vid to the first message of the thread

EDIT:
Apparently some people say that the installing file is in spanish (what is quite odd as i have the game completely in german lol)
So if someone can test this, please let me know by posting here

I've remade the installer, so if someone has any problem, feel free to report it.

Is there an .exe for people who have the Steam edition?

No non-automated .exe?
Will changing the host file do it, then?  (so far, i dont see anything)
I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with GameMaster Launcher downloaded from http://gameshare.co/gamemaster as I'm having trouble opening it.

SWBFII has no DRM, so any patched exe should work.
Don't believe everything you read on the internet

Editing the hosts file should work.
Im not at home but ill check the link later.

The thing would be to find the folder if it is placed somewhere else (or in a hidden folder)

In your steam game library, find the game and then right click and select "properties" , "local files" "browse local files" to find the game location.

The patched exe will work fine, but I don't think you can use GameMaster's launcher with the Steam version of the game.

Using steam or not, u need a swbf2.exe to run the game.
Steam's swbfii version is 1.1 (the one supported by game) so i dont see the prob...

The actual folder of most steam games I believe is "Program Files (x86)/Steam/SteamApps/common" or something like that.  There they are split into the actual games and files which you can switch the exe.

I think you miss understood me. GameMaster has a "launcher", which will launch any of the games they patch. (In addition to the actual patched exe file.) You can read about it here: http://gameshare.co/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=131
