Widescreen resolution[edit]

A No-CD executable is required for this.[1] Note that the GOG.com version already ships a decrypted binary and does not require such.
This fix is already included with the Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds All-In-One Patch
Use a widescreen patcher[citation needed]
  1. Download the fix from here.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds\Game.
  3. If you're using the GOG.com version, extract the contents from the GOG folder in the archive to that folder - for all other versions use the CD folder.
  4. Run the SWGBWide_x1.exe executable and the patch will apply.
  5. Run the game from wide_battlegrounds_x1.exe and set the game to use the 1280x1024 resolution in the options
  6. Should you not be able to select a resolution of 1280x1024 in the options, run the game from wide_battlegrounds_x1.bat instead.
