Solutions
  • Q: I get an error during installation that says: 'An error has occurred while trying to replace the existing file: DeleteFile failed; code 5. Access is denied.' or 'Error creating registry key: -//- RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 5. Access is denied.'
  • A: Reboot your PC, then start installation again.

  • Q: I get an error during patching to widescreen: 'Didn't find interfac.drs reference at expected location. Wrong exe.'
  • A: You have a multiple monitor system, so patch may work not correctly. You need to deactivate the second monitor and run patch on the primary monitor, i.e. monitor you want to play the game on. After patching process will be done, you can activate back the second monitor.

  • Q: Nothing happens when I start the game, i.e. it crashes immediately.
  • Q: When I run widescreen patch the window command gets full of red messages.
  • A: You need to install/update '.NET Framework 3.5'. On Windows 7 and later this component installs automatically, but if this didn't happen, follow the steps:

    1. Press 'Windows Logo' + 'R' keys on the keyboard.
    2. Type 'appwiz.cpl' in the 'Run' command box and press 'ENTER'.
    3. In the 'Programs and Features' window, click on the link 'Turn Windows features on or off'.
    4. Check if the '.NET Framework 3.5 (includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0)' option is available in it.
    5. If yes, then enable it and then click on 'OK'.
    6. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation and restart the computer, if prompted.

  • Q: When I launch the game I get an error : '0xc0000022'.
  • A: You need to do the same steps as in previous Q&A, but instead of step 4 you need to check 'DirectPlay' under 'Legacy Components'.

  • Q: The game crashes when I am using 'System Memory' option during installation.
  • A: This option is unchecked by default specially because it works not on every computer.

  • Q: Does it work if I have the Expanding Fronts mod installed?
  • A: Patch improves only the vanilla game, so it does not affect the modification.

  • Q: Why Steam Overlay does not appear in game?
  • A: The game uses DirectDraw for graphics rendering. Steam Overlay works only in DirectX games.

  • Q: When I am playing vanilla game or patched, the gameplay stops/freezes, but music still continues to play. It stays like this for about 10-20 seconds then it returns to normal. It happens very often.
  • A: The game is 15 years old, so it may not work properly on all systems. I know about this problem, I read about it on GOG forums, and one of my friends has it. But I cannot explain why this happens, searching in Google gave nothing. Sorry, I cannot help you...

  • Q: I've installed the patch and I can't access taunts or commands.
  • A: Look at the minimap, there's a PLUS SIGN (+). Click it and everything should be returned. The Taunts/Commands were simply minimized as an option to simplify the game, particularly for players that aren't that picky when it comes to unit commands.

Disclaimer
     Before you write a comment, please understand that the patch doesn't work for everyone. Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds is an old game, so the patch doesn't solve all of the game's issues. The description contains all of the patch's features. Only these features are included and should work perfectly for most users. If a feature doesn't work it is on your end. If you have issues with the patch you should uninstall it. Lastly, all comments that are not related to the patch will be deleted.

The campaign mode for the Republic won't load; when I click it, the button highlights but nothing happens. If this patch won't fix this glitch, could you point me to a patch that would?

how are you supposed to access the games actual launcher from within steam?

Means that you have already enabled it.

I try to hit enable for the widescreen mode, but the command script replies to me with this:

Locating game main folder...
Located @'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\STAR WARS - Galactic Battlegrounds Saga\Game'
Trying to find a patch file for all executables > 2MiB in size
Locating executables file '*.exe'

Locating Patch data file 'wide_*.patch'

Reading the patch file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\STAR WARS - Galactic Battlegrounds Saga\Game\wide_gb.patch'
No patches found for executable 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\STAR WARS - Galactic Battlegrounds Saga\Game\Battlegrounds.exe'
