Two questions about modding BSP

Two questions about modding BSP

Well I use the BSP Ripper extract the mpak file "2_usn_09SOLO.mpak" and I open the file , saw a scn file called usn_09_leyte.scn , I open it , I can,t see any thing inside , Why ?

The other question is how to change ship name in SP ? Which file ? (eg: USS A change to USS B)

Re: Two questions about modding BSP

I unpacked that mpak and i see many files inside. It's about 58 MB of unpacked files inside many folders. There is a screenshot how it looks on my PC.

Tell me - it looks different than other files with similar names ? For example when compared to 2_usn_08SOLO.mpak?


And you can extract other Pacific MPAKs ?

SCN file is a standard TXT file. Open it with notepad or similat software which can open TXT files. I can recommend You Edit Pad Lite. (in our Downloads section)

Re: Two questions about modding BSP

You have to change the .SCN file into a readable format, the best application to do that is the standard Notepad, right click the .SCN file, then do the "Open with" command then select notepad and then check mark "always use this application to open this kind of file".

Something along those lines I kinda just did that off the top of my head.

Re: Two questions about modding BSP

So... i'm really surprised with that, can't you see the text inside .scn file ? I opened that file before a moment and there is about 450 KB of text. Readable and editable. Try to open with another program. Wordpad (not recommended) Word, EditPad Lite ?

I can't agree with that. Notepad is just one of applications which can open scn files. But Notepad one positive thing is that program is added to Windows ae But it's not a problem, if You like Notepad, do it with Notepad.

We don't need filefront...

EDIT:

Check filesize of that unpacked scn.
And what about other unpacked files ? For example .dds files ? Can they be opened ?

You problem is - files are extracted but they are empty - the reason is unknown for me. My BS Pacific is installed on C:\Program Files. My BSP Ripper is installed on C:\Program Files.

My system is XP (if you are using Vista or Win7 -- try to launch BSP Ripper in administrator mode).

I did nothing special for extracting MPAKs correctly. They just extracting well all the time.
Im using EditPadLite (as a text editor) and Total Commander (as a file manager)

  • 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.
