Re: Have Mac Notebook Pro early 2008 game won't play

You installed the game and now it wont start up or it crashes? Do you get an error message?  Try turning game options down from your
BSM install folder there is an options.exe

It is a Mac Notebook Pro Early 2008 15".  It does not even show an icon let alone an error screen.  Nothing shows up.  Not even a disk icon.  Stick the disk in and it starts and quits spinning right away.

Re: Have Mac Notebook Pro early 2008 game won't play

So You have Battlestations Midway not installed - right ?

Try to open your dvd disc manually and find installation program.

Its hard to explain You that, because we all using Windows here.

Re: Have Mac Notebook Pro early 2008 game won't play

Well, does anyone know any mac support for this cuz I am abut to lose it here.  It is really irritating.  I tried everything.  I suppose being deployed is probably adding to the irritation.

Re: Have Mac Notebook Pro early 2008 game won't play

hello ARTEMIS (THIS A GREEK NAME, ARE YOU FROM GREECE?)

1) download and run the demo from here http://www.feralinteractive.com/?game=b … ile=bsm-mp
if demo its ok then you are comatible.
2) This game does not support GMA graphics cards with shared RAM.
3) You're much better off just making a .dmg image of the disc and load it with emulation!!! Many peeople has exactly the same problem like you. its not a BSM problem But macos problem.
4) try also to copy paste all the files from dvd to you destop an start installation from there.
5) another solution is to mound the dvd to an external fireware dvd drive. an external DVD drive will work - Trust me.
6) give us more information about that problem.

Re: Have Mac Notebook Pro early 2008 game won't play

OK so I downloaded the demo and have no problem playing it.  This is the 1st computer game I ever bought and not sure how anything else works.  So could you walk me through the other proceedures.

Re: Have Mac Notebook Pro early 2008 game won't play

Start with point 4 - its the easy way and should be tested first.

Make folder on your desktop
Copy all files from DVD to this new folder
Try to find and run instalation program from that folder.

"Copy all files from DVD to this new folder"

This is the problem.  The CD does not even register.  It just starts spinning and stops spinning in about 2 seconds.  Then ejects.

Re: Have Mac Notebook Pro early 2008 game won't play

So you cannot acces the folders and files on you DVD.

Personally i would go to the store, where i bought that product and i would demand the replacement of the DVD.

But looks like Nemesis knows more about Mac OS. Wait for his opinion ae

  • 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
