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

  • 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
