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.

No more BSM on Gamespy

No more BSM on Gamespy

Well, it seems like that BSM is not on Gamespy anymore unless something is wrong with Gamespy. If so then What will we use to play Multiplayer for BSM? GameRanger?

Re: No more BSM on Gamespy

We already checked GameRanger and Midway. It's not working. Even GR needs GS to connect us. GameSpy is built-in-game and only one option to play multiplayer games.

Re: No more BSM on Gamespy

Game Ranger is not working without Gamespy. I have tried to play using Game Ranger yesterday together with EST PL. It wasnt possible to start the game. If Gamespy stoped support for BSM we need to find  other way to play online. I have a proposition for Hamachi. Someone knows how to use it to play online?

Re: No more BSM on Gamespy

New info: Glu Mobile bought GameSpy and that's their decision , not GameSpy themself.

Many games are closed now. Rise of Nations. Flight Simulator X, Midnight Club II, Neverwinter Nights I and II WRC 1 and 2, FEAR, Gore, Rise of Nations and more...

Hamachi is good but, don't you have to pay to have more than 5 members?

I am Familiar with Hamachi, My Friend and I use it to play Sins of a Solar Empire and stuff. The only problem is that someone needs to pay to have more than 5 people in the network. If you guys can figure it out its just the matter of knowing the IP to the Network to play it.

Re: No more BSM on Gamespy

But how we can find more players on Hamach, we can organise one or two sessions, but old good Midway with new players is gone.

Re: No more BSM on Gamespy

Yes. It searching for BS:M open ports in LAN (Local Network) area. Only. You have no option to join IP adress (many games contains option like this), only full automatic features. Full automatic is cool, until it working. But now they disabled it and we have no options to connect.

Hamachi is a software which is able to connect players on Internet through LAN option. It means it emulate LAN using Internet. But first you need to group all those guys on SKype for example, tell them how to, launch LAN server and wait for them to join. Noone else can find and join you, only these guys.

Re: No more BSM on Gamespy

If there is no other way to play BSM than to use Hamachi, then it worth to try it, but first we need to group more players on Skype. Its not possible to meet others in game using that Hamachi, if we dont have contact between players. Or maybe there is a similar software like Hamachi.

  • 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*
