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

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.

  • 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
