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.

A guide to modding Battlestations: Pacific

Re: A guide to modding Battlestations: Pacific

Hello Axis_Crusher, I'm having an issue related to part 4 of your modding tutorials. I'm missing a few folders such as "universe,"  "weather," and a few other files from the game directory. I've found most of them when I extracted some of the .mpak's with BSP Ripper, but I'm not sure if I should copy the extracted/missing folders to the BSP directory or where to go from here. Here's what I currently have (Steam version): http://i.imgur.com/Fc37aUg.png

Lurking is a terrible habit of mine....

Re: A guide to modding Battlestations: Pacific

Did you note that I mentioned you need BSmodHQ v.3.0 for BSP to be installed as the tutorial is based upon that? I also do mention what to do if you don't have this installed but I don't go into detail.

Re: A guide to modding Battlestations: Pacific

Yup, I eventually figured it out on my own. It was another mod conflicting with BSmodHQ and I extracted some of the missing folders from the other .mpaks . Sorry about the confusion.

Re: A guide to modding Battlestations: Pacific

Ok great to hear.
Between the release of 3.0 and the tutorials I did extract some additional mpaks but I do reference them in the tutorial.

With regards to conflicting mods that is the one thing (amongst others) that really sucks in Battlestations modding.

Re: A guide to modding Battlestations: Pacific

Do you have any mods installed?

Just to make sure we're on the same track by swapping guns you mean for example replacing the guns on the Iowa with those from Yamato?

Re: A guide to modding Battlestations: Pacific

When you say it does not work could you be a bit more specific? What does/doesn't it do?

  • 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. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
