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 few question, eg: should I buy Midway?

A few question, eg: should I buy Midway?

Hello Midway Veterans!
I once owned this game and realy loved it. Now I wonder if I should buy it again on steam for a friend and my self.
So here are my questions to you guys:

1) Is it possible to play online even if the servers are down in an easy way?

2) How does this work?

3) Are the 2 map packs with it's new units usable for steam gaming?

4) are they still used by others? (I loved them so much)

If anyone knows something to answer I will be realy happy ad
Thanks!

Re: A few question, eg: should I buy Midway?

Hello, Timbot.

I would recommend Battlestations Midway to anyone!

The Game Ranger program is simple to use and allows us Midway players to play multiplayer very easily. Simply download the program, install it and register, then you can host and join Battlestations Midway game rooms. You can set them to private for just you and your friend, or have them public to allow as many as 8 people per game.

I'm not quite sure how Steam works, but I believe that the process of installing mods will be exactly the same as it would from the disk version of the game, with the exception of a different folder location (i.e. inside a Steam folder?).

Many players still play Battlestations Midway online. The more new players like you buy the game, the more players there will be ab

Yes. I would recommend Battlestations Midway and I'm sure you and your friend'll like it! Hope this helps, Paulsface269, Midway Modder.

Re: A few question, eg: should I buy Midway?

Thanks for the fast answer!
(are you one of the glorious modders :O )
I am sure that Midway is the best, since I realy start missing the good old days ... ab

But do you think that it's easy to find opponents, are there spacial times when chances are higher?
I'd love to give Midway a bit of life back :3

And is it possible to play with Disc-owners when you have the game on steam?

Cheers!

Re: A few question, eg: should I buy Midway?

No problem!

No sorry, I am just a regular modder. I wasn't involved in any group projects.

Midway is really great ab

Best times? It's hard to predict really, most of our players are American or European, so around morning, evening or possibly midday for those areas, there isn't really any 1 best time.

Yes. All players who are able to play the game at all will be able to see and join your games, and you can see and join theirs! Through Game Ranger it doesn't really matter how the game is setup or what OS you're using, so long as your Midway application can be found and launched by Game Ranger ab

Hope this has been helpful! Any more questions, don't hesitate to ask! I'll reply as soon as I next log on.

  • 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?
