Re: (PC Version of BSP)

You can check this site:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ … sp=sharing

It has direct download links for Battlestations Pacific + other GFWL titles before service gets shut down in July 1, 2014

Patch:
http://download.xbox.com/content/534307 … 000382.cab
http://download.xbox.com/content/534307 … 000482.cab

http://download.xbox.com/content/534307 … cf0003.cab   Volcano Map Pack
http://download.xbox.com/content/534307 … cf0005.cab   Carrier Battles Map Pack

(note: You can grab the DLC for archival purposes if you already own them - XLive will not let you use them unless you legitly bought them. Volcano link sometimes works, sometimes not - keep trying)

Re: (PC Version of BSP)

Amazing. Thank you.

Just regards to the Mustang pack. I see that it is already on one's PC so it might be installed when you install BSP or it gets downloaded in one of the BSP patches.

Re: (PC Version of BSP)

I hope those dlcs work since there is no way to buy them anymore. Thanks for those patches though, I have been unable to update the game. Now I can use mods that have never worked for me ab
Edit- what do I do with a .cab file?

Re: (PC Version of BSP)

Normally you extract the cab and place the contents in your xlive folder but GFWL won't recognize them unless you've bought them. I haven't seen methods to get around this.

ex. carrier map
XLive\DLC\534307fa\00000002\30d575bbcf6f6f33c3267c10ac195c6b97ff2dd6
XLive\DLC\534307fa\00000002\30d575bbcf6f6f33c3267c10ac195c6b97ff2dd6\Content


There are some xlive cracks which work offline only atm (search: JorjVirus69 or virusek or catspaw). I've heard JorjVirus69 is making an online multiplayer version.

GFWL DLCs are usually usable with catspaw dlls. You extract the cab file to <exe>\DLC. So it would be something like
<BSP>\DLC\Carrier Map Pack\content.xbx
<BSP>\DLC\Carrier Map Pack\content.cat
<BSP>\DLC\Carrier Map Pack\Content\bsp0000003.mpkg
<BSP>\DLC\Carrier Map Pack\Content\(..)

Sorry for not being clear. I use 7-zip to extract cab.

Re: (PC Version of BSP)

So how do I install the patches? I ran the installer and it says it installed but how do I know the game has updated? I feel like I did something wrong here.

Re: (PC Version of BSP)

When you are int he game and on the main menu you should see a version number on the bottom right. If there is no version number it has not updated.

  • 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...
  • SurgeonSasha : Северная каролина («link» ямато 1945 («link»
  • 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?
