Some important Questions

Some important Questions

Hi guys. I have some important questions regarding BS:P.

1) When Games for Windows goes offline, will it still be possible to play the singleplayer like always or do i have to use an offline profile?
2) When downloading the Mustang Unit Pack (Both Mappacks are unavailable i believe) do I have to use the online profile or can I use any profile to use the units
3) Is there a Mod with which I can unlock the P-80 and the Kikka? I already have both campaigns on full gold but not enough time to get fleet admiral in time...

Thank you for your answers.

Re: Some important Questions

You may need an offline profile to play after GFWL goes down. I've always used an offline profile. You can backup your save game if you're worried about losing that. To unlock the jets you can get my mod here
http://battlestations.eu/index.php/en/f … ic?id=1373 It unlocks all units, adds more command points to skirmish mode and adds the huge maps.

Re: Some important Questions

Are the Maps the ones from the Mappacks?
And I already have an offline profile but I cant buy the Pack with it, so I was worried that I might not have the units when I switch from online to offline.

Re: Some important Questions

The huge maps are not my work however all the links don't work so I added them to my pack. They aren't from the DLCs. I don't think you can buy the DLCs anymore. The unlocks will work even on a stock installation of the game with a new offline profile. Just unpack the files into the game folder and that's it.

It has already been done. Look at BSmodHQ 3.0 which has the Liz and Mustang from the Mustang pack. I am already busy with my next mod which will be another map/unit pack featuring DLC and brand new units and maps codename "Last Stand Pack" - successor to the Advanced Warfare Pack

Re: Some important Questions

Ok, but I´ve got another Question.

When trying to download the Mustang Unit Pack I had to realise that its not possible ingame do to the nonexistance of Microsoft Points, but when trying to download it from the Internet I had to find out that the PC Marketplace closed almost a year ago.
Is there another way to download it?

Re: Some important Questions

If you have not purchased it you can't. It's over.

There is good news though. I am working on a mod (you'll see the thread for it on the right) where all DLC maps and units will be incorporated into the game.

  • 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
