Since december 2012 Battlestations: Midway is supported by GameSpy no longer. The only one possibility for Midway players is GameRanger. Please visit www.gameranger.com, download Gameranger client and make new account. You can find other Midway players in the Gameranger rooms. BS:M patch 1.1.1 is required to play online battles. Iowa Mission Pack and Midway Modders Mappacks 1 and 2 are recommended.

Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

Hello there!

I've already done the conversion of the PC Mappack #1 for Mac! Mac users can now play all the maps with their beloved machine ad
I just need some online space to host. Anyone?

The Mappack is about 320 MB.

Greetings
Sid

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

Hi, I have not tested this mac version of mappack#1, but i manually installed from pc version from instructions i received from sid. Also there was for awhile a mac installer from sid on mydrive.ch that worked and i know others are using successfully. Probably same file. I and a few other mac users have installed mappack#2 the same way with files from pc installer, but some are not getting this to work. This requiers a pc emulator to get the files out of the pc installers and manually copying them to right place. I made mac installers for those modpacks but need a place to upload to.  Also there are old maps in briefings but text ok i think, can you help with that? Thanks Jóhann

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

1) The file for Mac which is included in my previous post is downloaded from mydrive.ch. Good to hear Mappack 1 installler for Mac working fine. I'll add this file to our Downloads then.

2) Briefings are wrong! Maybe in the future we will be able to break an unknown at this moment fileformat, but at this moment we can't. So we decided to use old briefings to prevent game crashing. Any map which does not contains briefing = immediately crash for whole game. So it's nothing wrong with that! PC users using wrong briefings too.

3) I can upload your installers i just need them in any place.
Question: Mappack 1 installer for Mac - is this file the same which was available on mydrive.ch ? If yes - i have that file.

4) Installer for Mappack 1 copying small amount of files. I think it's about 46 files (30 pictures + 10 map files + 5 briefings +1 global file) Mappack 2 contains much more files and all these files are important. If you want I can give You the listing of all files for mappack 2. You can check if everything is OK with that.

PS: Now i can answers for these questions:

Mappack 1 installer for Mac - is this file the same which was available on mydrive.ch?
Are You sure all files from Mappack 2 are included in Mac version of Installer?
Can You upload Mappack 2 installer on any site which hosting files or send it to me other way ? I'll download it immediately and I'll upload it to our FTP servers for all users.

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

re:

1)I just downloaded and tested this file on your side on a fresh installation. It works fine. I dont know if it is the same as was on mydrive.ch but i guess so.

2)OK with this then.

3)I only have them on my computer sofar, was hoping i could upload them here somewher. Guess I will have to work on this.

4)Im not really shure all files are in or necessary, there are some pc files in there I think like install2.bat. I just tried to keep all files in same relative places as in the pc version. A list of files with a note what each does would be nice if you or someone could email it to me.


Thats it for now.
Thanks for reply.

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

1) Ok. Now we have confirmed it's OK.

3) The options are: - communicators with file transfer - for example Skype. It can easy send that file to me - consuming full speed of mine and your internet connection (it should be about 2-3 hours). We (modders team) transfered all our files using Skype. The other options are: upload file to any server like mydrive.ch and send download link to me.

4) Ok. I'll send You list of all files which are included in mappack 2.

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

On internet mac users play through GameRanger(www.GameRanger.com) I believe pc users can connect through that too.
Most pc players(all?) go through another program Gamespy?
I dont know about LAN connection but there mac users dont need an extra program like GameRanger.
And I dont know about xbox

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

XBOX using different software to connect. PC and XBOX guys can't play together.  We (pc users) have Game Spy, but its built in game solution. So we can click Single Player or Multiplayer and if Multiplayer, built in game browser shows us servers etc etc.

I created Game Ranger account (I also sent you invitation ag ) , because i want to see that in action. Tomorrow I'll ask my PC friends to make a try. We will see.

We are little affraid what will happens with Midway, if Game Spy finish their support for Midway. GameRanger can be a solution for that...

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

Heh your stooping so low to play with mac users you make me laugh bj

although you do have a point that game ranger thing might be a nice alternative if Gamespy goes down forever.

Re: Mac : Midway Modders Mappack #1

I'm the developer of GameRanger.

Just to clarify, even though both the Mac and PC versions of Midway can be played on GameRanger separately, they are not compatible with each other.

Even on the PC though, GameRanger is still a better choice than GameSpy because it handles routers and firewalls automatically.

GameRanger - play your friends online

  • 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.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
