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.

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

  • N_Trainz : No it was created by multiple authors from around the world. I just made it so its actually a mod instead of a complete game that's about 7GB in size. The readme file that is displayed can give you more info about the mod
  • Runsva : hey ntrainz did u make this mod all by yourself?
  • N_Trainz : If you need any other help, just shout out and I'll try to get back as soon as possible
  • N_Trainz : Its not a problem :D I do thank you for waiting for a long time to get the mod. Again hope you enjoy the mod and the other fun features it comes with
  • Legendary Da : I don't know how many times I said that, but thank you so much for your work. Considering how much time making an installer, making it work and uploading it to different servers, I thank you again for the effort you put in this. :D
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Here it is, installers works this time and Moddb won't accept it as they say its too large to upload, so its on my Google Drive and here is the link, hope you enjoy it «link»
  • Legendary Da : I had guessed it was about the wrong area, though I still wondered why it had been removed. Thanks for taking your time to make something better for the community. Take as much time as you require, though; life still comes first.
  • N_Trainz : Actually it was removed by me for 2 reasons; 1. was it was uploaded in the wrong area and 2. the installer didn't autp - detect the disk version, only the Steam version (since that is what I have). Going to remake it so if you won't mind a but longer wat that'll be appreciated
  • Legendary Da : Thanks soo much for the mod, I couldn't access to the Internet lately so I couldn't write a reply. Btw, the mod is removed from ModDB, is it taken down, or you removed it yourself? Either way, thanks for the awesome work (at least for providing it) :D
  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
