How do I properly install the game?
Please check the amount of available hard drive space on your system before installing Star Wars Battlefront. Installation requires 2.7 GB of free hard drive space. We recommend that you have at least an additional 200 MB of free space available for the Windows swap/page file and save games. If you have too little free space on your hard drive after installing Star Wars Battlefront, you may be unable to start the program.
Automatic installs to the default directory (C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront), does not put a shortcut on your desktop, and may install DirectX 9.0c during installation if it is not already installed on your system.
Custom installation will prompt you for the installation location, ask where to place shortcuts in the Start Menu, if you want a shortcut on your desktop, and whether you want to install DirectX 9.0c if it is not already installed on your system.
IMPORTANT: You must be logged in with local Administrator rights to properly install Star Wars Battlefront on a Windows 2000 or XP system. Administrator rights also allow you to install the GameSpy Arcade and update DirectX in these operating systems.
NOTE: After installing the game, you will be able to play the game on a Limited (or Restricted) User account if you do not install to a location in the Program Files folder. The Program Files folder is a restricted folder that requires Administrator rights to access and modify. If you plan to play the game on an account with limited privileges, you will be unable to use the Automatic Install option.
