BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

Alright, this thread is to list the things I'm looking for to complete the Battlestations: Pacific guide and get it, along with the Midway guide, to Featured Status.

ACHIEVEMENT IMAGES

Unfortunately to all those with an Xbox, you must be a PC PLAYER in order to qualify to help me with this, as this necessitates a high image quality only PCs can provide. What I have currently is a small version of the achievement, obtained from the Xbox 360 achievement listing website.

Consider the current achievements for Stars and Stripes and Rising Sun.

What I have currently
http://media.strategywiki.org/images/6/68/BSP_achievement_Stars_and_Stripes.jpg http://media.strategywiki.org/images/3/3b/BSP_achievement_Rising_Sun.jpg


What I want
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v255/distant-thunder/BSPStarsAndStripes.png http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v255/distant-thunder/RisingSun.png

The above images were taken, via Print Screen on my PC, from the in-game achievements listing. As you can see, the images from the PC are of considerably higher quality. Obviously, however, I do not have all the achievements. I'm looking to obtain these images one way or another - if someone is willing to work with me online to obtain them, that's fine, but the more realistic option will be to find someone who already has these achievements, on PC, and can screencapture them for me.

I need the following achievements:


    Island Hopping
    Victory Rush
    Tin Can Captain
    Fleet Commander
    Head of the Fleet
    Wrath of the Empire
    National Hero



ISLAND CAPTURE DATA

Anyone can help with this. All I need is someone - anyone, really - with a heck of a lot of patience to go through the Island Capture maps currently not covered (as of this writing, that is Clash, Serpent, Spine, Jaws, Status Quo, Coral, Volcano, Checkpoint, Midway, and Phillipines) and document each map's Headquarters and exactly what units it can spawn.

It is important to NOT USE THE COMMAND BUILDING FILTER. This is because the filter states each ship only once, and only as a class - it will not tell you what kind of light cruiser the base will spawn, for example - Cleveland or De Ruyter? Takao or Mogami? Most notably, King George V, Renown, New York, or South Dakota? I need exactly which bases spawn which.

That said, do not strain yourself in attempting to take over the enemy's start locations and bases that are too close to it. Many of the maps are symmetrical, with equivalent bases on opposite sides of the map. Please mention, when you list, what has been approximated and what has been confirmed.

As an example, for the map Dreadnought:

HQ 1:
Elco
F4F Wildcat
SBD Dauntless
TBF Avenger
B-17 Flying Fortress
PBY Catalina

(maybe)
A6M Zero
D3A Val
B6N Jill
G4M Betty
H6K Mavis




Note that while these are completely voluntary activities, I will choose what data to add ultimately. Data you provide may or may not be changed accordingly. If you wish to edit the guide on your own, you may do so, but be aware that as an admin of the site I still reserve the right to revert your work.

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

Inevitably the facts presented on Google about the Shooting Star and the Kikka are different from how it handles in BSP. The G4M1 (Betty) in real life, for example, could carry FOUR bombs at most.

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

Uh, yeah? You didn't know that? Planes are far more manoeuvrable, guns fire far quicker and have a ton shorter range...you don't black out when trying to pull hairpin turns...the list goes on.

But yeah, I'm looking for people willing to boost me so I can test out the jets.

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

If you have unlocked any of the listed BSP achievements, please view them in the Achievements tab under the Tactical Library. Then hit Print Scren, open Paint, save it as a PNG, and send it to me.

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

Arrow, I may have some spare time next week to document some Island Capture data for you. Correct me if I'm wrong, but would it be quicker for me to do this in Skirmish Mode since the maps are the same. Do you also need to know where each of the unlocks can spawn? When I'm ready, I'll post which map I'm collecting data on, so we don't duplicate our efforts.

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

You can approximate the unlocks. For example, if you look at a spawn list you'll find that ASW Fletchers and Allens spawn together wherever there's a destroyer. Take a look at what can spawn what, and if you see any odd unlocks then pick them and see what bases can spawn it. For example, I know there're several bases I've done that can spawn Atlantas, but not Clevelands or De Ruyters.

And yes, Skirmish works just fine. I've collected all the data I currently have from Skirmish.

Also, if you find any weird glitches (see Volcano Medium) be sure to post 'em up. =P

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

Hey Arrow. On the BS.net forums, I saw that you were looking for the Repair for your Life achievement, but you don't have it listed above. Were you able to get a pic? If not, I have it for you.

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

That works well! Thanks, Agent!

I intend to update the achievement images with these improved versions once I get all of them. I like the guide looking uniform, y'know.

Re: BSP Strategywiki Guide Help

OK Arrow, I'm going to squeeze some time this week to help you out with some Island Capture data. From your wiki, I see 5 maps are still red (Serpent, Spine, Jaws, Status Quo, and Coral). I guess I'll start with Coral and work in reverse order unless you'd like to assign a specific map to me. Oh, one other question: do you prefer that I post the info I get here or send it to you a PM?

  • 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?
