Controllers tips and expert advice

Controllers tips and expert advice

For many years, I have played BSP with many deadly secrets. Since maps are going to be harder, I like to shared them with you.

First, the controller - Xbox 360 wireless for PC.  Download patch under gaming from Microsoft. Also you need a USB wireless Microsoft receiver that send signals to the Xbox 360 wireless PC controller.

My tactics and Strategies.   

Conquer then destroy later,

Use Japan Tabbies / US sky trains in the beginning of the game - fast. Very important when flying to capture a supply base, cruise in game mode. DO not touch or move the plane. When you approach an supply base, for example, with a troop transport plane at .07 distance, the FIRST set of troops will drop. Immediately clear this AI dropped command with back space; so that the other two sets of transport troop planes DO NOT DROP. Strike the view map button, usually Tab, direct the planes to another drop. You have just captured one supply base with two troops on reserve.

Use US TBMS with tiny tins: You can destroy two supply bases with one single pass by if two supply bases are next to each other.. Allow to explain.  Cruise, allowing the game do the work, at the first target until the others two planes use AI (artificial intelligence) to strike at no more than .03 distance. Since you did not fire your own tiny tin, you can approach the second nearby base and destroy it. We called this double whammy.

NOTE: As the rule of thumb, you can capture a supply base with one troop transport plane.  With two troop transport planes, you can neutralize an enemy supply base.

For new single maps, the enemy's AI will try to stop you from capturing neutralized bases with automatic fire, armor piercing shells, and etc. Less stress means more fun for you while playing. I hope that these tips help in the future.

Take care always, Bushidocode.

Re: Controllers tips and expert advice

Another tip to share to everyone,

Let us say, you have no seaplanes or planes equipped with depth chargers. An enemy wolf pack - subs - are approaching your base as a blockade. Another problem: you have no destroyers or patrol torpedo (PT) at port. However, you have CAs or BBs. At the shipyard, pawn the ships of your choice. Quickly, on each ship,  two battleships or cruisers, launch seaplanes by pressing "control" button on the computer's keyboard. Order them (two seaplanes) to attack one sub at a time. Now, with the battleships or cruisers, decommissioned them (the ships) by pressing the button "C"  - first and hold and then press "D" - the money sign. Now you can stop the blockade without any damage to your ships. Conserve your resources and achieve victory after victory.  Hope this helps. Your samurai of the code, bushidocode!!

  • N_Trainz : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • 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. :/
