Re: Hi there, new to the game

For multiplayer:
Always set repair for ships to all water, fires do nothing to ur ship in multiplayer ONLY.
when ur ships hull is destoyed, planes crashing that hull-destroyed ship do a little damage.
thats what i can think of

Re: Hi there, new to the game

Thank you

i played a few multi the other day and lost most.  i keep finding that the ships dont fire when there supposed to so u have to take command and then it means you cant focus on all the other things going on.  such as pt boats.  you send to attack but they just aim straight for the enemy and dont fire torps. i have to take control of each and fire and then get out.

same with subs. when it comes to torps they dont fire.  main weapons on ships fire ok but is it worth aiming for the weapons?

what i hate is that all all are set to do nothing or use torps as standard setting when the game starts so you waste time going to each one and changing settings. is there away around this or quick hot keys?

I hate how the tab is for map. as i cant stop pressing alt tab together and leaping out of the game bloody annoying.

anything else i should now about multi? 

one thing i did like is that i killed a sub with my cruiser and main weapons when the sub was SUBMERGED circling to get a shot on me lol.  Dont thing he was expecting a shell to land on him lol

Re: Hi there, new to the game

Use tactical map often. Control your all units on that map. But when any of your units going to action, use it manually. Units have AI, but it's not so smart.

Take a look for other players gameplay.
Always set 3 for water (you can change it for short moments, if needed)
Use kamikaze for bombers, you can send 2x bigger number of planes thanks to that.
Send your not needed squads (for example: without bombs) out of map, landing takes a lot of time.
If you have two units in action - use bigger one.
Try to stay broadside to the enemy ehips, you can use all ur guns.
Do not launch subs on Solomon Islands
Spread your torps if you firing them from the long distance
Use tactical map often (not less than 5x per minute)
Try to help ur teammmates and cooperate with them
Ask them, what to do, if you have questions - smart guys always will answer you.
Have fun
Good luck ae

Re: Hi there, new to the game

Hello jaruler,

Hookman here. I'm a newbie myself. Did anyone let you know where there are any servers to play online. I've assumed there are no BSM  Meta-Servers but maybe some private ones. I'll look around here and see if we can help ea. other. Do you have  any communication apps like Team Speak or whatever? Drop me a line @ This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

  • 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...

  • 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?
