Trouble with the command points Mod

Trouble with the command points Mod

When I try to use Areon's "999999 command points mod for Battlestations Pacific" the game crashes immediately after the game starts.  Is there some fix for the mod?  Or a way I can change the command points myself?

Re: Trouble with the command points Mod

If you want to do it yourself, you'll have to modify the multiglobals.lua file located in both GVMainMenu.mpak and GVMultiMenu__Init.mpak:

-Extract GVMainMenu.mpak and GVMultiMenu__Init.mpak using BSP ripper (from your BSP installation folder/mpak/global)
-In these, find GVMultiMenu__Init.mpak/scripts/datables/multiglobals.lua and GVMainMenu.mpak/scripts/datables/multiglobals.lua
-Open these with wordpad or any stuff opening text files, find these lines (it should be near the end) and modify the lines with XXXXX for the values you want, those values being the new command point choices values :

    [5] = {--"MLS_RESOURCE"
        [0] = { [XXXXX] = "FE.multi_commandpointlimit_desc",  ["Default"] = true,--["MenuDIS"] = true,
            },
        [1] = { [XXXXX] = "FE.multi_commandpointlimit_desc", --["MenuDIS"] = true,
            },
        [2] = { [XXXXX] = "FE.multi_commandpointlimit_desc", --["MenuDIS"] = true,
            },
        [3] = { [XXXXX] = "FE.multi_commandpointlimit_desc", ["MenuDIS"] = true,


-Be sure that the two multiglobals.lua stay identical, remember to keep saves of your files before modifying them. Repack the new files you modified and get them in your BSP installation folder/mpak/global
-Test

If you have any problem or misunderstanding with the procedure I described, I'll help you and answer any question. If it failed and you forgot to save your original GVMainMenu.mpak and GVMultiMenu__Init.mpak, I won't help you.

Re: Trouble with the command points Mod

Ok, thanks for the instructions, now I've got the following problem, if I unpack the .mpak file it shows the folders, but it seems that all the folders are empty, no files in them whatsoever except one, fe_multimode_listbox.lua is in the interface folder...

Any idea how this is possible?

Re: Trouble with the command points Mod

Okay, let's do it again step-by-step.

- What's the size your two original .mpak we're talking about ?
- Do you see only few files in those files with BSP Ripper ? In my BS P there is 249 object in GVMainMenu.mpak and 15 in GVMultiMenu__Init.mpak.
- Are you sure to extract with the option "select all" in BSP Ripper ?

I'm pretty sure there's a bad manipulation somewhere, not because I don't trust your skills, but because if those files were really empty, the game simply couldn't work.
I hope I'll help you.

Re: Trouble with the command points Mod

I'm also pretty sure I'm doing something wrong here..

The files contain the exact objects you list, but as soon as I unpack them, all that is created are the empty folders. So my guess is there is something wrong with the unpacker.

Then I de-and reinstalled the BSP-ripper, but now it doesnt even create the folder-structure when I unpack, if I click 'go to folder' after I unpacked and unzipped it just opens my 'my documents' folder with no trace of any unpacked stuff.

No idea what I'm doing wrong here...

And I used the 'select all' button as described. I'm just wondering if I should specify a path or whatever in the Ripper

  • 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. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
