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.

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).

  • 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
  • Runsva : mpak*
