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.

Why BSM is better than BSP

Why BSM is better than BSP

I am going to state my opinions why BSM is better than BSP:

1) the dogfights in BSP are ridiculous: almost every time the planes controlled by AI crash into each other, and try to ram my own plane.
2) i don't like the dogfight cross-hair bar, that "helps" me shoot, as if for some noobs..
3) ship battles in BSM are realistic - you shoot where the ship will be, so you have to predict your shots; in BSM it is simplified - you just shoot at the ships and the shells land on them, you don't have to predict much. I don't even get it how it works that way...
4) damage control is more sophisticated in BSM
5) i can play off-line LAN in BSM, while in BSP it is prohibited by the the BS Windows Live manager..
6) damage is unpredictable in BSM - i once sank a DD with a single bomb, and another time i could not even sink it with 5 same bombs - this is how it should be, while in BSP the damage is more less constricted in frames...
7) finally the japs speak their own language, and not irritating imitation of english.


I do like BSP though, i appreciate the training field the most - it greatly helps new players. And in BSM wildcats can outrun zeros - thought that is huge boost for everyone, it should not be that way...

Re: Why BSM is better than BSP

you can aim your guns 2 ways in pacific directly and  how you do in midway  that goes for aa guns too, for plane mgs you can turn off the bar in pacific. when you attack cargo ships and transprts with planes in pacific it takes for ever but in midway its more realistic only one strafeing run. in my opinion pacific is better but midway has its perks too.

Re: Why BSM is better than BSP

in midway the flak guns dont do as much dammage and both aa and flak guns arnt that acurate plus the tracers arnt that realestic  in pacific you fire more then tracers with the planes and the look like the ones in wwii movies and the flak guns do more realistic damage and the aa guns have more realistic tracers please give pacific one more try after you read this.

Re: Why BSM is better than BSP

i agree with plane crashes and japanese. ive lost countless torpedo bombers, dive bombers, fighters and bombers to crashes, usually when their circling over the carrier/base.

why did they have to have Japanese speaking English? one of the reasons i prefer Midway is because it sounds more authentic

and i understand and agree with all other points, i do like Pacific still though

Re: Why BSM is better than BSP

Bt then again, If the crew shouts Torpedo! in Japanese, you can't understand it. Plus, like you said, the plane crashes suck. My planes sometimes destroy themselves in maneuvers.

  • 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.
