I actually found a few threads on this but they both went relatively unanswered.
When I download a mod/map I place it into my directory through lucasarts/bf2/gamedata/addons like usual as instructed. Except when I go to instant action they do not appear. I have the CD-Rom version of the game, I have patch 1.1 and I have tried a reinstall. Not sure what other course of action I can take. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you.
Which mod was it? Some mods install differently from others.
It was just a single map, (SBF) Hypori: Greivous Attacks and the mod I tried (although this one is a bit older) was Map: Corusant (Jedi vs Clones) Author: Taljin. If you want to help me troubleshoot, tell me a map you know works with the configuration I described before, and I will see if it is just these particular map/mods that are not working. And thank you for your response.
My exact path is C:/Program Files/Lucasarts/StarwarsBattleFrontII/Gamedata/Addons
Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\Addon
