Its not that I can't find servers its a poll to see if you agree that Midway is a dieing game.

Re: Is Midway a dieing game?

I wouldn't say its dieing, but more in a "holding pattern" and stable which is actually quite good for an almost three year old game. There are days when I see more servers up than BSP which was only released six or seven months ago.

I'd say BSP is more dead than BSM, actually.

The ironic part is that BSP is supposed to be an improvement over BSM

Re: Is Midway a dieing game?

IMO we should start thinking about build a team and start Pacific modifications. Since Pacific and bs.net is abandoned by Eidos, there is nothing, what could stop leaving that game by players. If Pacific is in bad condition, we are only one group who can (maybe) change something with that.

I'm thinking and dreaming about mod with new maps, changing gameplay style to Midway. This could bring back all guys dissapointed with Pacific style, and personally i think all guys which like Pacific gameplay, could also watch it with interest.

That just needs a small groups of determined guys for a start.

Re: Is Midway a dieing game?

BSM is like my grantmother! : she has ultra high blood pressure, Asthma, High cholesterol, Osteoporosis, and many more Diseases!!!
BUt she is still alive at 85 years old.

BSP is like my uncle! : he has died within in 1 hour from Anaphylactic Shock Due to Bee Sting!

thats it...

Re: Is Midway a dieing game?

You can't say that, BSP is an improvement over BSM in many senses. Aerial depth charges, fire damage, torpedoes, GameSpy, replayability, graphics, sound, voice acting, and variety have all been fixed since BSM, so saying BSP has absolutely NO improvements is an outright lie.

I paid for an improvement and I got an improvement.

Re: Is Midway a dieing game?

People have been saying "BSM is a dying game" for a long long time....very long. In fact I remember several months after the game came out the lobby was almost always empty...then it picked up...then it slowed down later.

Oh....and it's been a long time guys...too long. First I couldn't create an account on the "new site" then I got busy and it was immediately followed by other problems.

Re: Is Midway a dieing game?

I've not been able to play BSP, I have the game but my laptop is a little too like a Nell and needs an engine and weapon upgrade.
But I heard that a lot of the sound effects are similar to BSM?
BSM is basically the best game in the world and the only game that I have played for the last 2 years - even though I'm not the best player in the world. The only other games I have on my laptop are on a Megadrive emulator, Goledn Axe, Altered Beast, Streets of Rage......
So please......keep playing BSM or I might just loose the determination to carry on........

Re: Is Midway a dieing game?

Yes BSP is an upgrade to BSM but the amount of people playing both games for xbox is like 5 times the amount of people playing them on computer..................    The only reason I play them on my computer more is that there are new maps, and the people who play them on PC aren't 8 years old  no lives.

  • 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
