There is no patch, but supposedly this is the process for getting the game to work in Vista:

Many Vista users including myself have claimed Battlefront II won't work in Microsoft's latest operating system by a year, Vista. The alleged problem was that when attempting to play any game (load a map), whether online or single player or compaign, the map wouldn't even load- the game would immediately stop and "crash" to the desktop (meaning the game just closed). But the Menus work fine in Battlefront II, so why can't any games, meaning maps, load?

People have found some solutions. Some people say that disabling sound within the game solves the loading issue, which it does, BUT all future gameplay is without sound. I've found a solution to the problem, at least for some Vista users who may find themselves lucky as I did.

Here's my solution. Keep in mind this is for Windows Vista users ONLY:

Go to START,
then click on CONTROL PANEL.

Be sure you aren't under "classic view" for the control panel. You know if you are not in classic view if you see categories such as "System Maintainence" and "Security." If you haven't tampered with the settings, then your most likely not in the classic view.

Anyway, then click on HARDWARE AND SOUND,
and then click SOUND.
A window will pop up.
Navigate to the RECORDING tab in the top,
then RIGHT CLICK on some open white space
and select "Show Disabled Devices."
Hopefully, if you are still in the RECORDING tab,
a new icon will appear called "STEREO MIX."
RIGHT CLICK on the SETEREO MIX icon and select "Enable."

And wippity bang! Hopefully, this guide was of some help to other once-hopeless Vista users. Happy playing, and may the force be with you all!

Cant get west front to work with windows 2000?


I recently dug this game back out, it is really cool and wanted to play it again. It was still installed on my desktop Windows XP and worked fine but couldn't get it to run on laptop with exact same problem you described. After an hour of searching the net I found this patch which fixed it and now it runs fine. You can find it at the link below. Just select the appropriate one you need.

Good Luck,

If you are using a digital camera on Windows Vista, and have not loaded service pack 1 (available through Microsoft Update) there is a flaw in the Vista operating system that fails to load the basic USB drivers that are used by most digital cameras, including GE. In November of 2007, Microsoft released a specific patch to solve this problem, the patch can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=51F0EF25-280B-4613-A600-C61224BACD1C&displaylang=en

Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia not working


a large number of older games do not work on vista, they are incompatible, you can either download the patch from the games site, which i see youve tried and it did not work, in this case, try to run the program in windows xp SP2 mode. to do this, fidn the application or executive file, it will have .exe at the end of the filename or will say application, then right click it, properties, compatibility, then check the box to run in compatibility mode for:, then choose for Windows XP (Service Pack 2), use those settings then try it again, if it still doesnt work then you simple can not use that game on vista. your last option you can try has a small risk of virus, only because it is user created, but seacrh the internet for a patch that allows it to work on vista. some people make their own patches to allow the program to work on vista.

Vista Patch


Simple, most unlikely solution: Try to download patch from microsoft website and install it.

Other Solution: Go to trained professional, (geeksquad or firedog), they will install it more simply and correctly.

Installation of software by them is probably like 30 bucks.
