  1. PROBLEM: I have installed this game it crashed my pc 3 times whilst
    installing once i finally finished i went to play the mulitiplayer game
    and the game freezes i have tried over and over again i installed the
    update no use (the game works fine except for the multiplayer game
    which is the reason i brought it)
    so i uninstalled and re_installed it
    it crashed my pc 3 times again at the exact same time as before now when i
    load the game up as it begins to load i get this message:

    'Buffer overrun detected!

    Program: ...Star Wars Battlefront \ GameData \ Battlefront.exe

    A buffer overrun has been detected which has corrupted the program`s
    Internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must
    now be terminated.'

    its driving me as mad i swear i wish i never got the thing
    oh yeah my pc spec is well within the requirements
    and i have bt broadband connection

    Star Wars:Battlefront buffer overflow

    Go to the install directory and save the "SaveGame" folder to another location. Uninstall again but this time choose the option to remove saved games and configuration data. Reinstall, verify it works, and then copy the games you saved (not the folder) to the newly installed SaveGame folder. Hope this helps.

    Same problem for me - £40 quid wasted

    I have the same problem - Lucas Arts are not interested - only bot replies.

    If anyone can help(this should be Lucasarta) - much appreciated.

    Star Wars:Battlefront buffer overflow

    Make sure the entire "C:\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront" directory is removed before re-installing. The uninstall does not remove all files. Check your install for success before downloading the update. If it doesn't work before updating it most likely will not work afterward.

    grrrrrr......lucas arts have done it again

    ok tried that - before update plays instant action games to about halfway then crashes to desktop - campaign games all crash as soon as selected.

    Put on update - same buffer overrun. Dang.

    Any other ideas will be most welcome - even consider PC out the window :(

    I got this error because of adding a custom map. as soon as I removed the customer map, the error went away. dunno if that helps...
