BSP: Xbox360: Game Freezes During Multiplayer

BSP: Xbox360: Game Freezes During Multiplayer

Hi Everyone,
While playing BSP on xbox360, I have noticed that the game freezes up sometimes while playing multiplayer.  Specifically when another player and I do an Island Capture mission against the computer, we have both frozen up.  This only seems to happen to the player who is NOT hosting the game.  I play on an Xbox Arcade  and my associate plays on an XBoxElite.  Anyone expereince this same problem?  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

HeyWestfield91,

As far as we know this problem appears not only for You. Many guys playing Pacific on XBOX talking about that. Eidos stil does not fixed this problem, so this is a little frustrating for all of us. So what You can do now.

- Make sure you console is not too hot.
- Play on small servers (2-4 peoples) not on full servers.

Make sure your internet connection is stable. Can You play other online games on your XBOX ?

Thanks for the response and advice.  Unfortunately the sad part is that this happens on closed games merely involving myself and one other human player.

BTW - How does one show one's current BSP rank in their website profile?

Re: BSP: Xbox360: Game Freezes During Multiplayer

I have no idea how to make this one, and the reason is: i never saw a website, where these ranks are available. I saw these ranks only in game.

Re: BSP: Xbox360: Game Freezes During Multiplayer

In addition to the freeze problem, does anyone else have the problem with High Latency on the servers while playing??  Frustrating, since after a full game of Island Captue, (and an hour or two later) plus points and ranking up, all is lost due to server problems.  Anyone else experiencing this??

Forgot to mention, this is while playing on XBox360, (not the PC version).

Also, anyone having problems with hosts closing games early or when they see they are not winning, (I believe this is called raging), rather than surrender, or let the game finish time-wise, so points and ranking up won't be trashed?

Agreed!  Any reason given or stated, other than less than credible server/router hosting on the BSP side?

  • 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
