Hello, you wonderful battlefronter! Yes, you! No doubt you've heard that the Multiplayer on the Internet has been restored but you are wondering what needs to be done to get your game back on.
Well, you're in luck because it's really quite simple! Star Wars Battlefront Multiplayer over the Internet no longer uses GameSpy as a host.
Instead it uses SWBFSpy. All you have to do is download a new Battlefront.exe and put it into a specific folder.

What folder, you ask? Easy! Your Battlefront game is in your LucasArts folder.
C:\ProgramFiles\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront\GameData
GameData! That's the folder! Move your new exe into there.

Where do you get this new exe? Right here at SWBFgamers.com!

If this tutorial looked familiar, Yes, it was a merge of the Gamemaster English tutorial and pieces of the SWBFspy Patched EXE's topic by Anyder.

It shouldn't. You must be doing it wrong somehow....

what is hexediting?

Well, that could be asking a lot of things. Google is your friend.
In short, it's to do with binary data along with the "hex" being hexadecimal. That's about all I know from my programming lessons :XD:

Downlaod HxD (or any other hex editor works too) from the internet then open your original executable using HxD and then press ctrl r and replace all instances of "gamespy.com" with "swbfgamers.com" and you should be good to go

edit by led:   replace "gamespy" with "SWBFspy"   (caps not necessary)
