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.

Multiplayer down, no good news yet

Multiplayer down, no good news yet

GameRanger recently released an update and blew all BSM players out multiplayer mode. It is still down, third week now. GameRanger have been somewhat indifferent, Feral are more proactive. Here's Feral's response to my note informing them of the issue, dated 2/16:
"We have since been in contact with Gameranger and they have released an update - however this has not fixed the issue completely. We are investigating this further with our internal developers and Gameranger to try and find out the cause and with any luck a resolution, but unfortunately we cannot guarantee when the issue will be fixed at the present time.
I'm sorry i don't have any better news for you in this situation and that the matter is resolved soon."
It's sad that the Mac version of this game is effectively cut off. We will see if things are worked out, though i'm afraid we may have lost the interest of many strong players.
Cheers,
Dredd

Re: Multiplayer down, no good news yet

Yes, GameRanger is still broken for players with sys 10.6.x
It does work for players running 10.4 and 10.5.x
I for example must reboot into old backupdrive into 10.5.8 to play now
Hope it will get fixed soon

Re: Multiplayer down, no good news yet

I hope that too. We are planning something like small Midway Cup and it's an idea to promote GameRanger for PC players too. GameSpy is going crazy somedays (yesterday 50% games crashed just after start or dropped 3-5 players). So that what we can is only ask  Scott Kevill about fix problem.

Multiplayer has been down on Midway!?!?!?!?!?!?

I haven't had access to the computer where I play Midway since Thursday, so I wasn't aware.

If you have been using the standard log in method to play BSM you are fine, this only applies to players that play through Game ranger which pretty much applies to all MAC users and some PC users that use the Game Ranger program.

Re: Multiplayer down, no good news yet

There is a new update to GameRanger now that seems to fix issues with system 10.6.x
Thanks to Scott Kevill for fixing this. I only tested one game yet and I was able to join and play ab

  • N_Trainz : it shouldn't crash any of the IJN missions, just one mission has the history of crashing in the Challenge missions 2, I don't know the name as its been a while I last loaded this mod
  • alantay11 : Gdrive mod crashes when i try to load a mission in ijn campaign?
  • 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. :/
