Re: Prblems with realism mod

Hi distroyer, welcome here. At least I have no problems with understand your english, so it's not bad ae

Instructions for installation of Realism Mod.

- Download
- Extract archive into main Battlestations Midway Directory
- Go to that directory, locate and run JSGME.

That should be simple but...

We don't know why JSGME can't work under your system (by the way - which Windows you are using?)

That what i can say now - i can create MS-Dos script which can be used INSTEAD of JSGME and it should solve your problem. With that script you will be able to activate and deactivate Realism Mod before running the game (just like it should works with JSGME)

In short - that script can replace JSGME. But please tell me - which Windows you are using?

Re: Prblems with realism mod

Hey guys.

On Vista there is instant problem with user privileges. When you are running on XP - you are default administrator of your PC. When you are running on Vista - you are guest on your own PC. In other words - you can not copy modify or replace some files using standard methods. Especially when you are trying to modify files in your Program Files.

My first suggestion: try to run JSGME using right click on JSGME icon and choose Run as administrator.
My second suggestion - oopen folder Battlestations Midway/MODS, locate file JSGME.ini and move it to the other location - try to run JSGME without that file (use Run as Administrator too).

If you have your Battlestations Midway folder inside Program Files - always try to run JSGME using Administrator privileges.

Re: Prblems with realism mod

Okay - there are two options

1) You need to wait for that MS-Dos script which can replace JSGME and you will be able to activate, deactivate mod iusing that script.
2) Unistall whole mod from your main Battlestations Midway directory (you need to remove folder MODS and file JSGME from main BS:M) folder.
Copy whole Battlestations Midway folder to the other location (for example Dab. Extract RealismMod.rar to any other folder, go to this folder, open it - you should see something like:

Code:


MODS\
ChangeLog.TXT
Instructions.TXT
JSGME.exe

Open folder Mods, open folder Realism Mod copy both folders dlc and mpak to that second Battlestations Midway folder you copied before. Replace all files.

With that you will have two installations of BS Midway - one standard in your c:/Program Files/ and one with Realism Mod activated.

Re: Prblems with realism mod

Distroyer I run vista myself and I have yet to encounter any problems running JSGME. If you are running into problems trying to start up JSGME then download this its a updated version of the same thing.

http://www.users.on.net/~jscones/softwa … _setup.exe

Make sure to have administrative whatever what nots off, basically all the bull that comes with vista turn it off before running any program on vista ag.

Yes. For example copy it to the D partition (if you have D). Battlestations Midway does not need to be run only from installation folder. It can be run from anywhere until you have all files in their correct locations (related to the battlestationsmidway.exe)

So after copying you can run Midway from your new location by double click on BattlestationsMidway.exe

And yes - you can have two or more copies of Battlestations Midway on your hardrive (I have 5 , maybe more 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
