Playing Star Wars - Battlefront without the CD

To play Star Wars Battlefront without having to keep the CD in the drive all the time.

1. Hex Edit (using something like HxD) the file at C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront\GameData\battlefront.exe

2. Search for the hex data E8 79 FE FF FF - you should find it at address 001ECED2 or similar.

3. Edit the preceding two bytes from Jump If Not Equal (JNE) - to Jump.
In other words: change the two bytes at address 001ECED2 from 75 0F to EB 0F.

4. Save the modified file.

5. Change the shortcut to C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront\GameData\battlefront.exe.
