Re: Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

Congradulations to Tipsy3000 and Gamming-for-Dummy's. The guid is easy to read and follow directions...and I like a few things as I read it. I injoyed reading it because it was like a person was intructing you as you went along the modding guid. Now it would make it possible for others to make maps and soo on, of course, if it goes public that is. This is a great guid for first timers and a lot better then the other guids I have read that are rather confusing. If I had to recommand a Midway modding guid...I would recommend this one over all others. GOOD WORK ag

Re: Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

Thank you ab I tried to make it as user friendly as possible.

Speaking of which I might have to work on version 1.2, I forgot to add some information that was suppose to go with 1.1, its nothing dire but useful either way.

Re: Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

You should add that when creating a new map you need to make a TOC so BSM Ripper can pack it.

No when your creating a new map you need to create a TOC file so the Ripper can recognize it and pack it. 600th Post

Re: Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

Should I integrate basic modeling and skinning into the current guide once enough information is gathered? Or should modeling and skinning be its own mini guide?

The purpose of adding the modeling/skinning portions is to tell the user what tools they need to create their own models/skin and how in implent there own models/skins into the game.

Not really it is creating maps and making them work.

Re: Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

The guide has been updated to version (1.3) a flood of new information on the existing topics, tons of info which was unnecessary was cut along with new sections added. which includes the adding/recognizing Single player maps (Thanks code_Kuno!)

Re: Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

A very useful guide, thanks for all of the hard work put into making it!

One request: A chart showing what devices, textures, etc are tied to the mmods in both BSM and BSP. just a thought really.. I'm sure I'll figure it all out via trial and error in time.

Re: Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

Its mostly pretty obvious which goes with what since the name of the ship its attached to is usually listed in the device/textures name, the only thing that might trip you off is the small arms like the Bofors/browning Mguns ect that will get you, but yea over time you become so use to it you can pick up what textures/devices you really need which is why I didnt add it to the guide.

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
