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.

End of Eidos Hungary studios?

End of Eidos Hungary studios?

I been seeing and hearing on the main Battlestations forum that Eidos Hungary studios got layed off and disbanded.

I dunno if this is true but I would like to use this topic to gather information and your thoughts about this.

Also if your asking what does this mean to you the player of BS:P and or (Doubt it) BS:M? Eidos's Hungary division is what made, develops and maintains Battlestations midway/pacific, if they are disbanded that would mean the end of update and support for the Battlestations series! Or worse the end of the Battlestations franchise!

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

No they not. Hungarnian language is most mysterious language for me, so i can't unbderstand that. At this moment - with all these language problems we really are in deep myst.

What that means for Midway fans ? Nothing. Eidos forgot about Midway long time ago.

More important that they  stopped their development for Pacific. In ther hand, they concentrated on commercial units, maps etc etc and gives nothing for free to the community. No patch, no new free mappack... so for Pacific guys this means no more commercial add-ons.

Hey, that's  the only thinking. In fact, we know nothing. I can only say, battlestations.eu will be there for a long time. Whatever Eidos Hungary exists or not.

PS: And will be supported and improved. I just like that site and game ab This gives me a lot of knowledge I can use on my other comercial sites.

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

Well I used a translator to read the article and responses but yes Eidos did forgot BSM and we stepped up to fill the requirement and I do believe in the future we can also make BSP maps and units. According to mycoldman sales were substantially below expected for BSP and for GFW something less then half of BSP players downloaded the map and unit packs DLC but there was also a thread on whether Eidos left these out of the game but this is of controversy because the game by itself seems actually incomplete but to get the full game you need to buy DLC but this has not been proven yet. But back to topic Adi said that they are making BSA I really doubt that they will since it probably will not even cover production costs. What has Eidos really released for BSP thats free?And Iowa was only free for us because PC BSM came out far later then console BSM.

I mean people that are interested in WWII games go out and buy SH4 or CoD WaW since SH4 has tons of mods which make your money worth it and Activison has already released 2 free map packs, and perhaps the third free too. Or they can get BF2 and 3 expansion packs for $20 and play for hundreds of hours online on massive multiplayer maps and plus BS series seems to have a bleak future so that goes back to topic Eidos will probably stop doing anything for BS fans paid or not. But if BS franchise does end there are hundreds of good games out there.

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

That's the exactly I expected. No answer or no help. But when we like Midway style, I still think we should fisnish our mod.

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

Same here, I expected a greedy company to deny assistance to outside sources unless they get some $$$ out of it.

But its such a shame to let go such an innovative game style that no other game has.

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

And the easy conclusion is: we should finish our mod without watching for any help from Eidos or whatever.

I didn't asked them for help with site ag

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

Yes we are absolutely not going to get even a patch free from Eidos so I really doubt they're going to help us in making their games better also we should copyright this map pack someone doesn't steal it and say he made it and sells it for money.

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

We should create an agreement at the setup of map pack that says you can not claim this as yours, change it, etc etc. That'll be good enough.

Re: End of Eidos Hungary studios?

Unfortunately they are not alive and kicking...seems they fired most of the Hungary team.......
Copyright thing is just the agreement that you agree to when installing a game on your computer(thats the easist way to explain there are tons more copyrights)and it says don't change the game and sell as your own, don't copy the game, etc etc...

  • 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.
