Welcome to the download help section. This section will explain how to use the types of downloads on this site, and how to solve common download problems. A Question-Answer format is used.

Q: Why am I asked for a username & password when I try to download a file?

Q: Why is my download a ZIP file? How do I use it?

Q: How do I use Campaign (CPX and CP1) files?

( Usually C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds\Game\Campaign ) There may be a readme.txt file included that specifies where certain files should go - things like sound and video files - follow the instructions in the readme for the installation of those files. Once in the game, select Singleplayer, Custom Campaign, and then the campaign you downloaded.
