Re: Veterans are playing BSP now?

No probably not.....games that have GFW have suffered massive losses of customers like BSP. The games dead after a year it came out unlike BSM which is still alive(barely but still) also like BF-2 which is also old but going very strong.

Re: Veterans are playing BSP now?

Yes - that GFW is going to make me crazy sometimes. When i started and tried to create account, GFW told me i can't because MS does not support my country with GFW. First I started thinking, im living on Arctica...

Re: Veterans are playing BSP now?

the game isnt that bad. the graphics, singleplayer, and units i think are great. It is the multiplayer that is horrible.

Re: Veterans are playing BSP now?

Hello
I dunno if that's the wrong emplacement or not to post this message it look like i'm bumping into someone else post like a troll^^
But it is worthing it:

I'm almost ready to buy battlestation pacific after testing the demo version.
pro: I liked the graphics It's a bit improve from what battlestation midway was graphically speaking xd.
The single players maps are good about loading what ever you want like ships units not talking about different planes from fighters to heavy bombers.
I am moving freely compared to battlestation midway due to the fact i can spawn at different areas my units
The paratroops/apa feature is funny as hell.
I'm not checking about it but bsp must have more missions than battlestation midway.
The accuracy on gun system is really good mostly on using the aiming reticle only when you see the two horizontals arrays going close together to center.

The con
It look the bonnus items are overpowering the ships especially the fast reloading /accuracy boost you get after a long laps of time.
I like arcade gamming but i'm figuring out this point will maybe lead on multiplayers feature to deliver headeach to players who love the old bsm way to fight.
I  tryed only one time the battlestation midway mp mod packs when i was able to load it one year ago.
I regreat my downloaded payware version from a legal site is beginning to bug again like it did about the black screen followed by a blue screen of the death bug that occure few time ago where many release of catalyst driver didn't resolved it.

I'm resumming about battlestation midway multiplayer part of the game with mod pack: it's fabulous.
Now what will happen to my in game experience if i try battlestation pacific in multiplayer ?

This last point will maybe stop me about buying this game.

If Eidos hungary is going down does it mean servers will shutdown or rooms will be host by custommers ?

Thanks and sorry again for the troll


ps i like to play navyfield and battlestation midway.
I'm a bit disapointed by silent hunter 4 but it's a good simulation.
I liked the silent hunter 2 version.

Re: Veterans are playing BSP now?

If you buy Battlestations Pacific (it's cheap game!) you will be impressed with very nice graphic (as you niticed in your post) and also with some of single players missions (because they are cool). And yes - you will get more single player missions than Battlestations Midway has (11 + 10 in BSM vs 2 x 14 in BSP)

Like in BSM, there are no dedicated servers in BSP. It means Eidos will not shut down any servers because rooms are hosted by players. From my observations I can say that - I think more guys playing Midway multiplayer than Pacific multiplayer.

Both games are arcade style, it means you can't expect they will simulate something. That's what i hate in BSP is arcade style of aiming (you just need to move your cursor over enemy ship and press fire - no skill needed for this) and continous spawning of units.

In BSM you have your fleet and you need to keep your eyes on your units. If you loose them, your lost the battle. In BSP you just need to spawn them again.

But... with their low price I can only recoomend buying both games. You will play BSM multiplayer with us, and sometimes you will play BSP too (because of more units and improved graphic).

PS: I don't like sim games ab I prefer Battlefield 1942 than Operation Flashpoint and  I prefer Battlestations than Silent Hunters or other naval sim games.

Re: Veterans are playing BSP now?

Nice answer.

I will still have two different gameplay style to handle for a while:
One with bsm multiplay mods that will make me happy if i buy the cd
Second bsp where i should enjoy more single players missions.
I really hope eidos engineers will discover a way to give us the Sdk for both games and still be able to protect them game codes.
Deus ex from ionstorm Eidos got a sdk and there is a unreal engine mod that redraw all textures at a better resolution.
Every games devs should offer a sdk cause community does good job most of the time.
I remember i took fun at some max payne mods as cool as the main plot story was.

last questions:
What happen when devs deliver sdks to players ?
why we don't see that many games with mods possibility
will a Money loose or any hacking feature that can be developped  programmer will fear should happen ?

  • 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
