Problems with Z key and Support Manager

Problems with Z key and Support Manager

Hi !

When I play BSP, I try to open the Support Manager pressing the Z key but often nothing happens and I have to press it twice or more to show the panel. The other keys seems to work correctly (A D W S R F and so on). My OS is Windows 7 and the game plays smoothly but it shows an error when I quit the game:

Anyway, I think this is not related to the problem. Can you help me ? Thanks !

Re: Problems with Z key and Support Manager

The crashes are quite common. This is an unstable game as is. My game for example crashes each time I minimize it, no fixes for that. I'm just asking whether you tested your Z key? An easy test is open a text editor and pressing Z quite a few times like you would press any other button end see if it responds or not.

Re: Problems with Z key and Support Manager

Thank you for the quick answer ab yes, the Z key is working outside BSP in the normal Windows 7 environment.

Re: Problems with Z key and Support Manager

ALT+TAB or CTRL+ALT+SUPPR can do this, I get no crash when I do so.
But I dunno why your Z key would bug specially with Battlestations. Maybe it's just the keyboard malfunctioning....

Re: Problems with Z key and Support Manager

Try assigning a different key to the SM

Sometimes when I minimize it does. I noticed the biggest trigger was when a GFWL notification comes through (friend online or message) or sometimes just out of the blue.

Re: Problems with Z key and Support Manager

I did more tests about this issue. I played some BSP training sessions with japanese & american ships and Z key works perfectly. I will try again because now I think that it could happen with big battles... maybe CPU is not able to keep up with all that mess, slows down everything and Support Manager doesn't appear when I press the Z key because of this.

  • 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?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
