Aspyr Media has released a patch for Star Wars Battlefront, bringing the game up to version 1.2 Rev A. The patch is mainly for Gameranger users, which fixes a bug that forced people to have to late-join GameRanger games. Users are now able to host a GameRanger game and everyone in the waiting room will enter the game when you launch the game.

The patch is available for download on Macgamefiles.com and weighs in at 3 MB.

this is GREAT news. downloading right now.

I wonder if "hosts" and "guests" BOTH need to patch to play one-another...sounds like it's more important for someone hosting a game, as far as I can tell.

I'll look for instructions and/or a 'readme" file - if I find anything I'll post it.

I know when the patch was being tested on GameRanger, only the host needed it.  I guess we'll see, though.

It's safest to have everyone update, just to make sure everything is in sync.

Hello, Gromit.

Thanks for helping me with my port forwarding issue. I had forgotten that the IP was dynamic and needed to be double-checked from time to time. I appreciate your assistance.

This patch is hopefully what was really needed to build the SWBF community. I'll be looking forward to more available servers in the upcoming weeks.
