Re: Indian Ocean Raid - suggestions and error.

i've managed to get the title to change
http://www.battlestations.eu/components/com_agora/img/members/39/error-title2.JPG

Ignore te yello color (i've been experimenting with font pictures using GIMP)
http://www.battlestations.eu/components/com_agora/img/members/39/error-title.JPG

only thing that remains is that the map is shown as" Raid on truk" in the server selection lobby
i'll see if i can correct that, but i'm very happy with the result already

i just realised this isn't the best thread to post all this

oh well

Re: Indian Ocean Raid - suggestions and error.

after playing this map yesterday, i'm convinced that it's important to group all your ships when playing on the US side.
group all your ships around your BB/CV using the formations button (Alt-S standard) and then get all those formations together and keep it tight for optimal AA cover.
yesterday i've lost numerous ships because we didn't group our ships and then you can just easely pick off ship by ship.
remember this, the CL's are the best for flak cover so make sure you put one in FRONT and the BACK of the formation and 1 CL on each side.
also try to move between each wave to the enemy BB's.

that looks like a nice US strategy IMO ab

Re: Indian Ocean Raid - suggestions and error.

In my opinion we maybe need add 2x SSs to Usa Site because :
USA                    JPN
0 SS                   4 SS
4 BB                   2 BB   
2 CV                   4 CV

JPN SS is to much for me or we add 2x SS to USA or USA never win ab

  • 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?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
