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.

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

  • 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
