Re: BATTLESTATIONS MIDWAY

OK I use that way when I'm reinstalling Windows. Thanks to that (i have Battlestations Midway installed on second partition) i don;t need to reinstall the game after reainstalling windows.

First of all - which version of Windows you use - XP or Vista?

Re: BATTLESTATIONS MIDWAY

It means game lost some important values in windows registry. IMPORTANT. DO EXACTLY WHAT I WRITE - NOTHING MORE. IT CAN STOP YOUR WINDOWS XP running if You remove or change wrong values...

1) First of all download attached file - unzip and double click. Answer YES for question. It will add some important values to your windows registry.

Download

2) Go to Start button and click Run - type regedit and press ENTER. If everything is good - new window will be opened - Regedit - a registry editor for Windows.

3) In this Regedit window find a key Battlestations Midway - use left column to navigate. Double click on small yellow folder icon will open or close if opened. There is a path:

My computer/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Eidos/Battlestations Midway/

4) After this your Regedit window should looks like on my picture (click on picture to enlarge)

http://battlestations.eu/components/com_agora/img/members/51/regedit.jpg

of course in language you are using with your Windows.

5) AND THIS IS IMPORTANT PART. Look in right column for a key ApplicationDir. There is the place Iowa Mission Pack checking when looking for the game. You should change this value and type a correct path to your game folder. For example - my game is located on D partition in folder Battlestations Midway. So my correct value looks like

D:\Battlestations Midway\

Now double click on ApplicationDir key to open this key, type correct value for your game, then click OK to save.

6) Game is not checking right version of this in registry of windows. . But if you want to be right and install all patches one by one. Just do this:

install patch 1.1
install patch 1.1.1
install Iowa Mission Pack

ITS PROBABLY END

Re: BATTLESTATIONS MIDWAY

I did the change value, and installed all the patches.
Then it still says wrong disc inserted.

So first I did change the value to the original destination folder.

C:\Program Files\Battlestations Midway

Then installed the patches.

Still wrong disc inserted!

Re: BATTLESTATIONS MIDWAY

For that - use NoCD patch. It's available in Downloads on this site.

http://battlestations.eu/index.php/en/d … /1-patches

Last file.

PS: If working, download and install Midway Modders Mappack 1 and 2.

  • 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
