Help movie and FAQ for beta - how to extract all archives in 2 minutes

You need Total Commander and, if You use Vista or Windows 7 - you MUST run that program as administrator.

Download Total Commander here: … ander.html

download and watch help movie here: … xtract.avi

If You don't know, what to do with downloaded archives - watch movie!

Question: I have some problems with these maps. Should i redownload them ?
Answer: Redownload only if new version is available. You can easy check, your downloaded file is correct or no. Open archive with WinRar and click icon Test. If You will get a message about no errors in archive, you don't need to redownload file. It will change nothing.

Question: I don't see new maps in my game.
Answer: The problem is with extracting GGame.rar archive. It contains two important files. These files must be extracted. Overwrite existing files.

Question: I see strange messages instead of the map titles and messages. Something like m22 obj_USA_comp, mm22 obj_USA_failed, mm22 obj_Japanese, mm22 obj_Japanese_comp. What i should do.

Answer: Unpack Language Pack.

Question: When you are playing these new maps in multiplayer mode ?
Answer: Usually about 20-23 GMT (London Time). COntact one of us with Skype for more details.

Question: I was on  test server and ready to play. My game crashed when loading (or just after start).
Answer: You must be sure,  you have newest version of that map installed. Different versions = crash.

Question: How to extract these maps? Where?
Answer: Directly into game folder. All archives are prepared that way, so You don't need to think, where you need to place these files. If Your game instalation folder is C:/Program Files/Battlestations Midway/ extract archives into C:/Program Files/Battlestations Midway If You are using Win Vista or WIn 7, you must be sure your extracting tool working in administrator mode.

Question: Administrator ? What is that?
Answer: Simply click with right mouse button on Win Rar or Total COmmander icon. Choose: Run as administrator.

extract = unarchiving = unpacking.

  • 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
