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.

Thanks guys!

Thanks guys!

Hey guys,

I was having such fun earlier I didn't want to leave, but I have work so I need to sleep.

I just wanted to say that I am really glad that I found BSM, and this forum. All you guys are really cool, and I never cease to have fun, even when Adi and others tell me that I am a girl, which I am not, although judging by this message I might be. It's nice to find other people that like battleships and the navy - none of my friends here in England do, so it's pleasant!

Hopefully one day there will be an annual BSM conference, we could all stay at a hotel and set up a LAN, and run cables through the hotel corridors to eachothers room for a full on matchup, or hire a conference hall and set up a LAN there. Then Triviaman could do a presentation on a battle, and some of the pros can give out their secret tips, not all of them, but some of them, and we could all drink rum and sing yo ho ho.

And you could all come to England.

Or we could start up our own country called Battlestationonia, which would be a battleship and live out in international waters.

Maybe not to the last idea. But the point of this message was just to say thanks really.

Looking forward to sinking your ships soon!

Re: Thanks guys!

Cool post Helsingfors, thanks to you too ab Sometimes i'm happy our community is not so big like CoD or Battlefield communities, because our relationships (i hope its correct word) are closer.

And there is a topic about BSM fans meeting. I told you about that today http://battlestations.eu/index.php/forum/topic?id=318

Re: Thanks guys!

Thanks for what you said about me... in fact it just so happens that a while back I made a 62-page Powerpoint (Slideshow) on the Attack on Pearl Harbor for a history report... if it were possible I'd share it with you guys.

Re: Thanks guys!

Thanks Est - I'll check out the old thread now! And relationship is the right word, because that's what you make with friends! And your right, just too many people in the big communities...

Trivia - no worries, Coca Cola is probably my favourite drink in the world, so we can drink that instead! Just a shame I can't drink more, I could do at least 6 cans a day. I did say could........not that I do! The slideshow sounds like hard work, but you probably did it with ease!

Re: Thanks guys!

Ladies, calm down NOW(NAO in gamer language)!(As Samuel Jackson would say "I had enough of these...... on this....plane.")

We do have young members here and we will not tolerate them being teased
<sarcasm>(too much ae a little is good for character building but lets not let it go into bullying). </sarcasm>
IJN, stop Trivia did nothing to you. He was merely stating he couldn't drink. I think you were making a joke but I am not sure enlighten us on that number.

Trivia for you, don't overreact too much(I understand that you are a lot younger then most of us but believe me you don't want to be old). The last posts will be deleted as well as this one.

If anyone is teasing you(make sure its not a joke though) more PM Est, me, or any other administator.

Well... I guess I did overreact... but at least I didn't go as far as saying bad words, so I did managed to keep my cool in one way

Re: Thanks guys!

Believe me, if I could, I would do that...

but 98% of the time everyone is so eager to start that I have no choice but to give my Trivia in the beginning 30 seconds of the game.

And on top of that I have great opening monologues for a couple maps as well

Re: Thanks guys!

Enough. Trivia, your the one thats really increasing this beyond what it should be increased to. He just giving you recommendations about when you should do your Trivia and I haven't seen IJN call you Triviateen in the last 8 posts. And that was before I deleted the others. He just saying concentrate in the game, not your trivia, I understand you, but I understand his argument as well.

Re: Thanks guys!

Ok, I completely get it now.  In the game, I should focus on the game, and only do the Trivia when it is appropriate.

And I only said to delete the posts because don't you think that this misunderstanding and everything that followed is irrelevant to the topic for this thread.  All helsingfors wanted to do was thank the community.  I never expected this to happen, and right now I feel really guilty that I let it go that far.

As for the Triviateen thing... I'm over that now; I get that it was a joke.

  • 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
