Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

For the first time in gaming history, after countless games depicting various aspects of the rich Star Wars universe (including some we never wanted to see), players have the chance to step into the boots of the average soldier in the wars that raged across the galaxy. Gameplay is based on the successful standards set by Battlefield 1942, but combat in Battlefront is even more massive and heated, vehicles are more predominant and the familiar starships are also included. There are three different game modes to play: Historical Campaign (featuring a series of "historical" battles from the Star Wars mythos), Conquest (in which players vie for dominance of individual planets) and, of course, Instant Action. The game puts two pairs of factions at war: Republic vs Separatists and Rebel Alliance vs Galactic Empire. Each faction has four standard unit types (soldier, heavy weapons trooper, scout and pilot) plus a fifth, special unit which differs radically for each side. Famous Jedi and Sith are included as NPCs only in selected battles. Finally, the game offers almost all of the vehicles seen in the movies for players to fly, drive or hover and prevail. (MobyGames)

The patch is Star Wars: Battlefront 1.2 Rev A and is also available at the old Aspyr support link via the Wayback Machine

9.2 is not OSX.
You need to either run 10.3 - 10.5 on a real PPC machine (G4, G5).
Or for PPC support you need Snow Leopard 10.6.8 (with Rosetta installed) on an Intel machine.

QEMU (osx 9.2)

See Compatibility section above - Minimum Requirements: Mac OS X 10.3.6

Version 9.2 of Mac OS is not OS X - but I don't think emulators would be up to running this kind of game very well, if at all. Best option would be to one day, find an older PPC Mac with at least those minimum specs.

Hi guys, I¡m using El Capitan, I can install the game but I can not play it because powerpc is not longer supported, and when I try to install it on QEMU (osx 9.2), it says that the package can not be opened. Any ideas? what I'm doing wrong? thank you for your help in advance!

As before me "eastone" and "scott Praed" wrote, i can confirm too, that you need to install a version Toast and mount the "No DVD" mini image with it to play the game.

Hello everyone!
Are you going to play it? It’s supported in GameRanger! So we could play all together.

As I said before, if you burn the game DVD to disc (take SkyCapt's advice on how to do this), and mount the DVD, then the game will play. I have tested that this works. Either do that or wait maybe forever for a NoDVD that works for you.

Now I know what is going wrong: the noDVD crack has nothing in it - that's the real problem.
Do you know where to get a working one?

Thanks a lot

Fosillium, neither. You'd burn the toast image to DVD with Toast or Disk Utility or other. Not copy anything to DVD using the Finder...

But help save a plastic tree and don't burn DVD, try download #3 upon your harddrive instead. If you burn you may find that this era of mega-blockbuster game titles doesn't recognise homemade burns as being legitimate, you'd have created another 'coaster'.

Do I have to copy the toast image to the DVD or the content after opening the image?

Of course NoDVD works if is mounted by Toast.

If the NoDVd does not work, you can still play the game by burning a DVD of the full install disc and mounting that.

Thank you for your very fast reply.
Sadly not working for me. It doesn't work although i've mounted the installation toast.
Kind regards and Merry Christmeas from the south-west of Germany

I've uploaded the 'Star Wars Battlefront No DVD.toast' and 'Star Wars BattleFront SN.txt' files that I have. These are untested. The uploaded file is called 'Star_Wars_Battlefront_serial.zip'.

I tested the Stars Wars Battle Front NO DVD in Toast in mac os x 10.5.8. Just mount in Toast as DVD. It will play.

Scott, have you tested this first? It does not work for me. That is why I did not upload it when I first uploaded the game. If the NoDVD does not work then it should be removed from the page.

I upload Stars Wars Battlefront No DVD. Just mount with toast.

Please add a no cd crack

It's a shame there isn't a no-cd crack available for this game. Finding cds is a bit tedious these days, not everybody sells them anymore.

The Unarchiver says "Could not extract the file Star Wars Battlefront.toast. The archive file is incomplete". Now this was after dropping all three parts onto the app - maybe I'm doing it wrong. BetterZip just sits there.

Neither one seems to work....

@riven2000: Neither of which doesn't work? I assume you mean the GUI apps. What error messages did you get, if any?

...iModFrenzy said six months ago that the archive was corrupt ...

@WhosIt.There: Corruption to files can occur at any time and for a number of reasons, to anyone downloading files. It is why I prefer to include checkums with all files I personally upload, so I can immediately determine where a problem lies - with the archived file or with the downloaded file.

However, I can attest to the viability of these particular part files hosted at maxzzz1's - otherwise I would not have included a detailed how-to, below...

Install Me Now!
... as it looks pretty good from where I'm sitting!

iModFrenzy said six months ago that the archive was corrupt - if it still is, then that would stop anything unarchiving it.

BetterZip also works. That is what I used to split the archive originally.

Not sure how to combine these files - StuffIt Expander hangs....

Its quite easy if you use the Terminal in OS X to join these part files back to a single .zip file, then use the built-in OS X "Archive Utility" to extract the disk image from the re-joined zip archive.

Place the 3 parts only, together into an empty folder, cd into that location using Terminal and enter from the command-line (you can copy & paste the following if you wish):

cat S*.* > swb.zip

Wait a few minutes for cat to finish (the Terminal's full prompt returns when done) then close the Terminal and double-click "swb.zip" so the internal zip "Archive Utility" can extract the archive from the recombined zip file. The swb.zip file gets extracted to a disk image named "Star Wars Battlefront.toast", which you can then double-click to mount onto your desktop and install from.

But... if using the Terminal isn't for you, you can use the freeware "The Unarchiver" to put these files back together again (have all parts in the same location as above and drop part *.001 onto the Unarchiver).
