Hello

Hello

Hi, I've just found this site and I'm pretty happy to finally see some mods for the game. But, I tried to download any mods like 99999 points and all the links are dead. Could anyone possibly reupload them somewhere? Another thing is when I ran BS Ripper and unpack files, it shows me empty folders, like it hadn't done anything. How to make it work?

Oh. I've just realised my game is 1.0 not 1.2. Do you know where to get the patch from? it's not a Steam version, I have it on a CD, if that matters...

Good day sir and welcome to our little family.
I wish I could help you with the mod you are looking for, but I don't have it myself.
As for the BSP Ripper you can read my short article here: http://battlestations.eu/index.php/en/f … 812#p25812
Regarding the patch I assume when you mean you have it on a CD it is the retail version sold in stores. Run the game as Administrator and sign in using Games for Windows Live when the game opens. It should notify you of the update. You should have to go through the process twice (1.1 and 1.2).

Re: Hello

Thanks for reply, I already managed to find the 999999/unlock mod somewhere in the forum ( http://battlestations.eu/index.php/foru … mp;lang=en ) and it works even with 1.0. In windows live I get an error. I'll see what I can do.

Hi and welcome. I think Axis told you a few things about the patch. I had found the patch for BSP and I have it hosted here: http://www.moddb.com/games/battlestatio … version-12
GFWL also should had updated your game as well, but if you want to patch it manually here it is. Download the 45MB file and run it, it should install to your BSP game. Hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else.
Cheers

  • 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
