When Are You Playing Midway on the PC?

When Are You Playing Midway on the PC?

Hi all, I'm new here and want to get some PC Midway gaming into my regular game rotation. Since my game playing is limited (sadly, like all of us), it would be great to get to know the hours you guys are normally on so we can make it easier for all of us to join games together. Also, let us know what server or player names we should be looking for. I once saw a game 'BS.EU', but I couldn't join since it was on your beta map, Ten-Go. Too bad, since it had 7/8, it was the only game running, and the connection was good. Unfortunately, I had a really bad case of timing this last week (BF2 also released a patch with new maps and that ate up alot of my gaming hours). How do you guys normally hook up? Just find each other at certain times of the day? Get on the forums and exchange PM's? X-fire? Teamspeak?

I'm on the West Coast of the US, so I might have timing problems with you guys in Europe due to the huge time zone differences. Like, if I get on at 5pm PST, isn't already 1am in England and 2am or later on the Continent? How late at night do some of you play till? In addition, I haven't played on a European hosted server and don't know how good our connection would be. I also play World in Conflict, though, and the connection on European servers has never been an issue for me (however, it has great net coding). Maybe I'm wrong, though, and some of you are up at horrendous hours (lol) plus you don't experience much of a connection problem with us out on the Pacific. In any event, please share your information as well so we can all get an idea of our normal Midway gaming hours.

Re: When Are You Playing Midway on the PC?

I play Midway 4-5 evenings per week.  Personally I noticed, many guys playing this game is from Europe. And they playing at evenings too. So - the best time for Midway (on account of the amount of european players) is 8 - 12 p.m. (GMT -London time). Its easy to find servers in that period of day. In other hand - if You have patience (and you are ready for 10-15 minutes of waiting), you can find players all the day. But IMO the best time is 8-12 p.m. GMT.

PS: And about new maps. Decisions were taken, so Midway Modders concentrated on finishing existing maps. You can expect final public release very soon.

Re: When Are You Playing Midway on the PC?

Im usually on most days but not all, I get a bit of the Euro action early in the day and late at nights (around 9-11pm EST time) I get some small American games.

The admin does have a point most people here that use this forum are mostly European so 8pm-12AM GMT is the best time for getting a game (easily 3-4 rooms constantly), but if you can wait, you might get lucky a pull a game off around 8pm-12AM with us American's, although there is a lot fewer of us =(.

Re: When Are You Playing Midway on the PC?

Ok, so the ideal time, when the most people are usually on, is 8pm - 12midnight GMT. As far as I can tell (the online time zone converter said I was GMT -7 hours), that would be 1pm - 5pm PST. In addition, I'll look out for Tipsy3000 and other US players that may be on a little later in the evening (since that's my normal gaming hours). Great guys, this helps a lot. Oh hey, how are the connections between us Pacific Coasters and you Europeans? Will it be at least 2 dots (yellow)? I don't expect a 3 dot green connection with you guys, but 2 dots is doable.

Re: When Are You Playing Midway on the PC?

You can expect yellow connection. A little hard for dogfight, but still good for bombing/torping and warships ab

  • 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
