Since december 2012 Battlestations: Midway is supported by GameSpy no longer. The only one possibility for Midway players is GameRanger. Please visit www.gameranger.com, download Gameranger client and make new account. You can find other Midway players in the Gameranger rooms. BS:M patch 1.1.1 is required to play online battles. Iowa Mission Pack and Midway Modders Mappacks 1 and 2 are recommended.

Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

Modding BSM - An Easy Guide.

Okay. Midway Modders Guide is done by gaming-for-dummys and Tipsy3000. It has a lot of important informations and tips and it's much bigger and better than other guide you can find on other sites. Already added to our Downloads (top menu position). Of course you should choose Battlestations Midway category, then Midway Modders Tools. Direct link is here:

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.

  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
