Re: Battle 0f ANTA CRUZ

what difficulty do you play on?.and is this the first carrier or second carrier.because when i attack a carrier i always send one fighter squadron to take on the carrier's CAP and  three torpedo bomber squadrons behind them.and also i find it a much better to manually control each squadron.when u can't see the carrier if it's zuiho it will generally be heading north.

Re: Battle 0f ANTA CRUZ

Keep 2 CAP squads, and spam torpedo bombers on the carriers. Be sure to hurry up with that, because 3 Jap BBs are coming your way. Plus, you can launch recon planes from the Northampton and the South Dakota to keep track of the enemy fleet.

Re: Battle 0f ANTA CRUZ

that's true and there's an achievement on the mission if you sink all of the jap ships on veteran.

By the way, the achievement is called "Take No Prisoners" which I got. Very difficult. Always choose the TBM Tiny Tim rocket plane.

Re: Battle 0f ANTA CRUZ

ive gotten the achievement  the TBM is the unlock you want to use  use the south dakota tbms with tiny tims only and sbds with 450lbs bombs against  the japanese vanguard force  if you are good  with the southdakota  she'll survive  i always take out the carrier's escort first then attack the carriers. dont use the northhamton and its fleet send the 3 atlantas to enterprise one in front and the others on each side . and keep the repair priority on fire  for all missions  works best in my opinion.

prepare to be shot down

  • 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.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
