Multiplayer still alive?

Multiplayer still alive?

Hey guys, I saw the demo at a friends place and really liked it, but I will only buy it if there is an active multiplayer community. So are there still servers around (for PC version) and do people actively play this game? Or maybe MIdway?

Thanks for any info!

Re: Multiplayer still alive?

For both game, dont expect 100's of servers up and running, there is still people around that play it from time to time, just dont expect a lot of people and keep your eye on the world clock because you may notice more people on at different times then others.

Re: Multiplayer still alive?

Midway has some active players - there is still no problem with servers and enemies. The best time for playing - weekend and european evenings (in ordinary days). Game is really cheap  - take it and come to play. And as Tipsy said - don't expect 100 servers, but if you are patient, then there will be no problem with other players. I have no idea about Pacific - since a month im trying to make Skinpack for Midway then i'm playing Midway only.

Re: Multiplayer still alive?

I just bought BSP and play it through Windows LIVE! 

I'd love to get some milti-player games going, but there never seems to be anyone to play with/against.

I'm in Los Angeles and play in the evenings usually.

Re: Multiplayer still alive?

Maybe I'll pick that one up as well.  I downloaded the demo on Steam, but haven't played it yet.  Is it any different than BSP as far as graphics and game play?

Re: Multiplayer still alive?

The gameplay differs a lot, but you'll like the BSM gameplay more (just like everyone else here ag ).
We are trying to get more people online on BSM by releasing various homemade maps, you should download them aswell if you buy the full game ad .

Re: Multiplayer still alive?

i think the gerund why more people play bsm is that the mutli player in bsp is boring (i find it boring too). in midway there are many more options with multiplayers. only god at bsp are the grafic and the campaigns. the rest sucks! bsm-multiplayer 4 life =D

  • 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.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
  • Runsva : pls help me fix it i really want to play this mod :D
  • Runsva : and i copied every file to the mpak folder in the bsp directory, and when i try to run it it just crahes onthe main menu screen
