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

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.

  • 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.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
