I know how to mod sides, but how do I make a sides mod? How do I make my sides available to all shipped maps in SWBF2? I know to replace the \LVL_PC\Sides with my custom sides, but I need a mission.lvl to replace too. How do I munge that?
I don't think you need a mission.lvl, at least I never did, I just replaced the sides.
I didn't make it!
Here is what you do. 1. Munge your map with custom sides. 2. In your data_ABC folder, there is a _LVL_PC folder. Open this. 3. There should be a sides folder. Open this. 4. Inside your sides folder should be all of your sides .lvl files. Copy the ones you are using into C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\DATA\_LVL_PC\SIDE. (Make sure to make a back-up of all of the sides' .lvl files you are replacing.) 5. Play the game, and your custom sides will show up in the default maps.
