Learn how to play!!!!

Learn how to play!!!!

right firstly all you new dudes that haven't a clue how to play this game,here are a few pointers, play as a team and listen, you dont torp DDs because they will miss, theres no point bombing a BB with a zero, wasting your time and at that even with a judy unless the superstructure has gone so again dont waste your time,  it just pisses people off, and finally you poles that have influxed this game, stop fukin gibbering away like monkeys talking polish, english is the universal language so learn to speak it or shut the fuck up, its ignorant and rude so get some manners and become part of this ever dwindling community, i have had about 3 decent games in months because all the good players have gone and been replaced with NOOBS!!!! i hate noobs, its a team game, remember that, ohh and this post will only be read by a very few so it wont make a blind bit of difference, i'll just be another good player saying bye bye poons

oh PS
Hosts that put a map on then wait for everyone to choose up then change the fukin map... go to hell! people will leave and go to another server , right i have had my say have fun

Fasty, it is possible to explain how to play without cursing 100 times. You may remember me, I am Cnl.Duck&Friends in Midway.

P.S. Do not call me a noob.

Less than 20% of the world speaks english.
>_<

Say, you go to france and expect everyone to talk english?
Hm.

On the whole, I agree with you.

I agree, It's hard to communicate with the players who say stuff in german to you. Still, you have to respect them...(Maybe find a translator?)

Re: Learn how to play!!!!

One of the best maps for noobs to screw up on is Midway--the 4 jap cvs vs the us 3 cvs and airfileds.  It's amazing some the tactics you see (or lack of tactics).  All kinds of planes launched--some go straight in to attack, others are send for long treks along map edges only to be slaughtered when they appear.  Really sad sometimes.  Riad on Truk brings out the worst also--like the guys who take west virgina right by the mega fortress and are quickly sunk.  They do it time and time again and wonder what is happening, like "WTF?"

  • 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
