This mod adds new commands to the 1.3 patch's fake console, which will allow you to change the appearance of units in-game (such as changing the legion of clone troopers). All four main factions will be supported.

This mod changes appearances only. The weapons, ammo, equipment, etc of the classes will NOT be changed.

Likely-to-be frequently asked questions


When is this coming out?
When it's done. I don't know an exact date. I can't predict the future.

Is it online-compatible?
Yes.

Can I use this with ?
I originally thought it would be compatible with most mods, but I was wrong. After the release of the first beta I received dozens of crash reports. That said, it MAY still work with some mods, but all I can guarantee is that it'll work for the original, un-modded sides.

Can I add my own skins?
I hope to add that feature. No guarantees.

Will you release the assets?
When the mod is finished, i'll release the code for it. But not most of the skins, as they are made by others and can be found elsewhere. (Don't worry, they're all publicly released skins.)

1. Skins Crashing the Game

The following skin options have been known to cause the game to crash for some players, especially when using a side mod:

  • 212th Attack Battalion
  • 327th Star Corps
  • 41st Jungle Camo
  • Phase 1 troopers
  • Phase 1.5 troopers
  • Galactic marines
  • Phase 1 Snowtroopers
  • Imperial Snowtroopers

The cause of this issue is currently unknown. However, as stated above, it most often occurred when using a side mod. Turning on V-sync has been known to prevent crashing, but not all the time.

Possible Solutions

  1. Try using it without any side mods installed.
  2. Try using an ENB like this one: Moddb.com
  3. Try using the Lite version of the mod.
  4. Try turning on V-sync.
  5. For 212th Battalion and 327th Corps (Thanks to Greeny and a guest for finding this!):

A guest said:

212th
Step 1 : Download the skinchanger beta and the skinchanger 0.5.5
Step 2 : Copy the 212.lvl folder in the Skinchanger folder (beta)
Step 3 : Paste the 212.lvl folder in the skinchanger folder (0.5.5)
Step 4 : Put the folders userscript11.lvl and skinchanger from the skinchanger mod 0.5.5 to Star wars battlefront II/game data/data/lvl pc

Now you can play with the 212th !

327th
Step 1 : Download Notepad ++, the skin changer beta and the skinchanger 0.5.5
Step 2 : Open with Notepad ++ the userscript11.lvl from the 0.5.5 AND the beta
Step 3 : In the line of the 327th (beta) - (you can see rep_inf_327th_rifleman) and in the line of the 327th (0.5.5) you can see differences : copy and paste some words to get the line of the 327th from the usecript11.lvl (beta) in the userscript11.lvl (0.5.5).
Step 4 : Copy the 327.lvl folder in the Skinchanger folder (beta)
Step 5 : Paste the 327.lvl folder in the skinchanger folder (0.5.5)
Step 6 : Put the folders userscript11.lvl and skinchanger from the skinchanger mod 0.5.5 to Star wars battlefront II/game data/data/lvl pc

Now you can play with the 327th !

2. Skin Changer options not appearing in the Fake Console

This is most likely means one of two things:

  1. You installed the wrong version of the v1.3 patch. The correct version can be found here: Mediafire.com
  2. You installed the mod in the wrong place. Please refer to the instructions here: Moddb.com

Hey, this mods is my favourite BF2 mod. (I voted mod of the year)
I was seeing that non-humans crash for alot of people (including myself) but was wandering if the army troopers of the empire was crashing anybody elses game.
I love using navy troopers as officers/engineers (on the Death Star for example) and would like to use army troopers as recruits as well.

P.S Could you make a version of the navy troopers without helmets, or slim the current ones down in the next update, they are a bit bulky.

Thank you for working so hard on this amazing mod.

The Problem has now gotten worse as most of the skins i click on will automatically crash the game. I have V-sync on, but am unwilling to try the ENB or uninstall any of the maps I have. if there is any other solutions, i need help!

I am having a major problem with the mod. i am only able to access the phase 1 clones and no other skins. they all show up in the fake console, but when i go to click on them, they do not change the skins in the game. I am really looking forward to playing as the 5th fleet security and need major help.

It's weird that this mod apparently still works, but for me the options literally vanished from the fake console.
I have *no* idea how that happened, I was literally playing and then the options stopped showing... That was like 8 months ago now, still no luck bugfixing even with a fresh install.

I'll just have to wait for the next mod version, when I return to BF2 :P

The 'non-humans' is the only one which crashes for me.

First of all just wanted to give some much-deserved praise for your mod! I really love it; simple but adds so much to the base game for me. Just wanted to let you know something I've discovered:

For the Rebellion skin changes, the "Nonhumans" skin consistently crashes.

Not sure if this is a known bug (and it certainly isn't game-breaking), but I figured the more you can gather then the better you can make the next release, which I'm VERY excited for. Anyway, keep up the great work! Looking forward to more in the future!

It is, it just takes a bit. Enjoy the releases he made in the mean time. Some skins crash.
