Frosty is your method of applying your mods to your game.
You can install your Frosty via Vortex, or via the appropriate links.
Please note that many new mods require the Frosty Alpha to work, the links can be found on the relevant mod pages. The link for the latest Alpha (5) is available here or on the Frosty Toolsuite Discord channel.
The Alpha now includes necessities like the Gameplay Merger and Localisation editor.
Upon downloading Frosty Mod manager, unzip the contents or extract them into a new "FrostyModManager" folder inside your Battlefront 2 folder.
Inside Vortex, Navigate to the Dashboard on the left hand toolbar under your game and select "Add tool" and select "Frosty Mod Manager". You may have to edit the tool command line to direct the tool to the Frosty exe. You can now start Frosty from Vortex.
When opening Frosty, you will have to select which game you want to manage. Frosty should detect Battlefront 2 if it is in the correct folder.
Make sure your Frosty Mod manager is set up before this point.
Vortex will serve as the mod manager through which you will download your mods from Nexus.
You have to select the game you want to manage in the "Games" tab before you can begin downloading mods..
You will know when the right game is selected as it will appear in the top-left corner of Vortex.
Simply find a mod you want and select "Mod Manager Download"
When the mods you want are download to Vortex, Install, Enable and Deploy them.
They should now appear in Frosty Mod Manager when opened.
Steam is our recommended version of the game to have as it makes modding much easier.
If set up properly as above, Launching the game through Frosty with your mods applied will launch the modded game.
To test whether your mods have applied, use a loading screen mod as you will be able to see whether the mods have successfully applied.
Due to the way Epic's file paths work, modding the EPIC version of Battlefront 2 may be difficult and your mods may not appear to apply.
You can use one of the two following fixes.
(Recommended) Download and run this program: https://github.com/Dyvine57/FrostyFix/releases
Open Origin > Game Library > Right Click Battlefront II > Game Properties > Advanced Launch Options
In the command line arguments, enter this text: -datapath "(your filepath to ModData here)\Pack Name" replacing "your filepath to ModData here" with the full file path to your ModData folder (ex: C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin Games\STAR WARS Battlefront II\ModData) and "Pack Name" with the name of the Pack you are using (most likely Default). You can find the name of your pack by looking at the top left of Frosty Mod Manager's window.
For example, this is what it would look like:
-datapath "C:\Program Files(x86)\OriginGames\STARWARSBattlefrontII\ModData\Default"
You MUST get the file path correct otherwise your game will not launch and, if you change which pack you load, you must change the datapath's pack name as well.
