I didn't make it!
I downloaded a few mods and I want to try them out but how do I load them to Battefront? Do I need the BFBuilder or what?
no you definitely do not need BFBuilder for putting mod maps into battlefront. u need that to MAKE mod maps. if you download the 1.2 update (get from lucasarts) you will find a folder called c:/Program Files/Lucasarts/Star Wars Battlefront/Gamedata/AddOn unzip the maps u downloaded and read their readme. put the folder (which is usually something with 3 letters then a number (eg. gan1) ) into the Addon folder. then play the game and the you should find the maps in singleplayer Instant Action they wont work galactic conquest or w/e i hope that was THOROUGH enough.
with other words: the mod is simply a modified .lvl file, which you're supposed to overwrite the original .lvl files - remember to make backup-files or at least save the original .lvl files
