Macintosh mappack 1 and 2 problem with download.

Macintosh mappack 1 and 2 problem with download.

I got strange message...

hi guys ...

went to download new Map packs #1 and #2 ... for the Macintosh.

Clicking on BOTH downloads, makes the window flash over to Go ... and it is about sex toys and sex networks.

Also there are no details on the second map pack ..  like the first map pack the details button on that one works.

Hope  you fix this ...


Can anyone confirm that? In fact i noticed the details button NOT working for mappack 2, ill fix it soon. But i tried to download mappack 1 and 2 and no problem for me, no window is open. After that I switched to all languages which we using on site... still no problem, downloads working....

Can anyone check it too ? Just go here: … pple-macos
and click download on mappack 1 then mappack 2.

No need to to finish downloads, just start downloading and break it. I just need a test from someone else.

Re: Macintosh mappack 1 and 2 problem with download.

I tried both links, and both lead me to some hosting issue with an alligator. Hard to obtain the map packs when these are the only links I could find, and they don't

In life, the best defense against someone attacking you is to not get involved in the first place.

Re: Macintosh mappack 1 and 2 problem with download.

Today all most important links for downloads for PC Windows  (patches, mappacks and skinpack) have been fixed. MacOS files needs to be reuploaded. We lost FTP server some time ago and we lost a lot of files on this server (i have a copy of these files on my hdd however they aren't available online). 

For MacOS Mappacks please give me one more day to be ready for download.

Re: Macintosh mappack 1 and 2 problem with download.

I have uploadet mappacks 1 and 2 to dropbox for now until this gets fixed. …

This is for DVD version of the game = V1.0 to V1.0.3
There is an updater to v1.0.3 on this site and it seems to be working. Languagepacks for mac on this site also seem to work.
Follow installation instructions and remember to select destination as "Battlestations Midway" folder and not a subfolder in it.
Install mappack1 before mappack2 so you end with correct global files.
There is a version 1.1 of this games distributed through App Store. Installers do not work directly on it because filestructure is different. Datafolder has been converted into a read only .dmg diskimage. It is possible to copy the diskimage contents into a folder that is put in a folder "Battlestations Midway" and then install into this "Battlestations Midway" folder. Then use Disk Utillity to make a diskimage of the "MidwayData" subfolder and use that diskimage to replace the original diskimage. I know a few players have done this and it works but is a bit complicated. I only have DVD version so cant really try it myself or make an installer for it.

I play mac version of Battlestations Midway as jovald on GameRanger

  • alantay11 : Is there a way to fill up the empty ship slots when using SurgeonSasha's Yamato? Or is it my game not showing the models?

  • 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?
