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.

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.

  • 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.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
