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 : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • 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. :/
