to tell you the truth, i didnt like this mod too much.
here's why:

-Horrible heroes :(
-units are hard to control
-laggy
-nothing new

Lag is only ever a function of your computer, this mod doesn't affect it.

Perhaps you could elaborate on "horrible heroes," because that by itself doesn't make much sense.

Nothing new? Are you daft and you just missed the long list of new things in the release post?

If the units seem hard to control, that's because you aren't used to them. They are very different (new melee system, also, see above complaint where you posited "nothing new"), but that doesn't mean they are difficult to control.

Those aren't really very well-thought-out complaints.

im sorry.
the lag has stopped now that i have upgraded my system.

by "units are hard to control" i mean that they are kind of slow and the guns are not that good

i didnt really like the heroes because the force powers were kind of lame (and the "charging" was kind of annoying). another thing is that they were confusing. for example i would choose obiwan and have to adapt to a windu attack, aayla secura also has some weird attack. vader cant dash or do his "null" attack and basically the most fun elements of each of the heroes was taken away.

ive been playing the mod a lot more recently and ive gotten used to it. All-in-all i actually liked having some new heroes/units once i got the hang of them.

Great Job with the mod although i still think that there are some annoying elements in it such as speed of units, hero attacks/forces and etc.

Anyways im sorry if my original post was too vague and i could see how you could get insulted by it so heres my explanation/apology.

All of the heroes are supposed to be different - and that shouldn't be an indictment against them simply because they're not what you're used to. I suggest you read the "NewSabersystem.rtf" document in "Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData\addon\BDT\DarkTimesdocs"

Before I download this... does it add files or replaces them?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

This adds files. It does optionally replace some of your original config files, to update the game to the unofficial 1.3 patch (a requirement for this mod). The unofficial 1.3 patch does not break any compatibility, online, offline, mods, or otherwise.

I hd a question, would this mod work along with the conversion pack just fine if these are the only two mods i would use for the game?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+4 votes

Sure. There are no compatibility issues with the two.

There is a fixed limit to the number of missions (scripts) the game can load, but the Conversion Pack and Dark Times by themselves don't exceed that (the Conversion Pack takes a little over 50% of the limit, but Dark Times adds less than another 10%).

great mod i espescialy liked the hero ships in dogfight although it is a bit hard to tell the difference between biggs x-wing and the normal one so maybe in a update you should add some lines on the sides like the ones on his helmet in a new hope

could this be because i have another mod installed? because iv got the unofficial patch 1.3 and Conversion pack. because there are no ther things i can think of that would make the game think one of this mods files are corrupted

'install into "Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData"'

lucusarts > Star Wars Battlefront II > GameData
OR
steamapps > Star Wars Battlefront II > GameData

oh i think i figured it out, if you have steam do C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData
but if not then put it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Lucasarts\Star Wars Battlefront II\GameData
