Mustang Unit Pack DLC

Mustang Unit Pack DLC

Finally I can give something back to this great community. Found my old Mustang Pack DLC intact on my old PC.

Just put it in your AppData>Local>Microsoft>XLive>DLC

Enjoy, have fun, hope it helps in your modding endeavors as well.

It would be really nice if someone could upload the other 2 map pack DLC's. Seeing as how even if we want to legally purchase them there is no way to with the demise of GFWL Marketplace.

Re: Mustang Unit Pack DLC

Damn that's what I feared would happen, I tried to mess around with mpaks and just put the class files in directly in the install folder but that didn't work. Well at least all the files are there. Hopefully you could get it working, there's no other way to acquire this DLC now and no one should miss out on it now.

Re: Mustang Unit Pack DLC

oh man I would love to see this, I have made a "super yamato" already with machine gun cannons and launches kikkas and even dives like a submarine which is my profile pic (insert troll face here), so I can't wait to try that with the super yamato ag. I'm sure I'll try to make it work but not sure if it will work. do you have your non-dlc mpaks? Game_Global, GVMainMenu, and GGame_OnInit have to be edited to add units so if you have those they might be useful. if you look in vehicleclasses they might be there and that would make it a lot easier to add these.

The unfortunite thing is they "dont have" the required files so we cant "drag and drop" to make them work, As far as I can tell they dont overwrite those files and add the lines. It appears we need to create them ourselves. If said is true I'd like to know where those lines of code are for the unit stats.

I'd love my Alaska back though.

Re: Mustang Unit Pack DLC

I'm sure the code is somewhere...it has to be.
EDIT-could it be in that mpkg file? How do you open those? Bsp ripper has a button to unpack mpkg but it doesn't do anything, does anyone know how to unpack them?

Re: Mustang Unit Pack DLC

After digging around it turns out its "most likely" a mac type file. so if anyone has a mac they should try opening up the file and extracting the contents

Re: Mustang Unit Pack DLC

So no one has been able to get the DLC working? Damn.

And how do you get the IJN Yamato anyways, is it an ingame unlock?

What do you mean by that, since the source of the file isn't from a Mac OS, unless you're implying the game itself was made on a mac? I'm a bit confused here.

Or are there some additional game files I need to upload? I just assumed that once you have the DLC files in the XLive folder it would work but its more complicated than that isn't it?

Im saying if you do a quick google search on that file type it relates to a mac install file.

The only other thing i could think of is to upload your GV main menu mpak and the GGame__OnInit.mpak to see if it did overwrite those files with the unit entries

Re: Mustang Unit Pack DLC

Just as feared it didint overwrite the files so unless we crack the mpkg file we wont get the DLC units converted to a mod.

OR someone creates all the file entries (as in stats in the vehicleclass.lua) the models are there but the stats/coding for it is not. I dont have the knowledge to otherwise id do it myself.

  • 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?
