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

  • 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?
