Maybe some useful Information!

Maybe some useful Information!

Today i startet with "modding" for Battlestation Pacfic and i got some useful information.

If you want to change something and don't want to restart the game and login @ windows live everytime... let it ab You can change something in txt. file pack it with BSP - Ripper and put it still in the right mpak-folder. Now you only have to start a new battle, but you get your results faster.

Then i still using notepad++ it's very helpful for the overview of the work. (different colors/ etc.)

So now i got still a question ag. Did someone knows where i can find the .tga files?
Example: in GVSpace_Init.mpak in file gui_cross_all - Line 50 - "gui/crosshairs/_friendly.tga" - where is this file?

Sorry for delay, i was on holidays. Usually you cannot find TGA files, because they are TGA after unpacking them from MPAK files into RAM memory. Okay - sounds difficult? Forget about TGA - find DDS files instead - they contains your TGA ab

There is a package which let u open DDS files http://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-text … -photoshop

Additionally my IrFanView (http://www.irfanview.com/) with plugins can open DDS files too (if you want to give it a try - download irfan view, language (if needed) and plugins).

radarmaps / interface minimaps aren't in mpak files but in the folder battlestations pacific\interface\textures\gui\radarshots. If you create new maps, you can create corresponding radar maps.

You have some crosshairs in skel_init.mpak (interface/texture) and mostly in game_dxt5_1.dds located, I think, in GvSpace_Init.mpak (interface/texture).

  • YamatoFavor : Would be great if the models are from Wows
  • alantay11 : Is there a way to fill up the empty ship slots when using SurgeonSasha's Yamato? Or is it my game not showing the models?
  • Axis_Crusher : Thanks, but we already implemented both ships in the Advanced Warfare Pack a few months ago...
  • SurgeonSasha : Северная каролина («link» ямато 1945 («link»
  • 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?
