    DLC alone won't work. Besides, why bother changing things?

    A. Things work as they are
    B. It uses up a lot of memory...
    C. ...on a single model.

    Imagine how much data it would take in order to fine-tune every single ship in the game to look EXACTLY like it did in real life? It would quite honestly come to the point of absurdity.

    I realize that I'm not going to get every ship, but, there are ussualy enough ships in a class that they don't need to take from another.


    PS. instead of Skirmish, add more classes/fix!

    Don't scrap a possible skirmish mode, and Im sure they can fit more than they did onto the disk

    Honestly though, I couldn't care less for skirmish...

    Though, if there was a way to get a guest, I think that would be cool, but then my stupid tv. is kind of small for that stuff...

    Back on topic, people. I need more corrections. Read through the multiplayer tactics also. The idea is to present viable winning strategies, not just the opening moves for each side.

    But knowing is half the battle! Also, you could incorperate it in your strat, just swap out what you have for begining strat., and the rest is basicly the same. (And by swap out, I am just stating a way to present it, not to remove what you have currently)

    In Samar, on 360, the carrier is listed as the Akagi. Also, if what you have is right, then in Operation MI, you have the Zuiho listed wrong, there, you have it listed as a Soryu class. What I think happened, was a glitch, that is why it says Zuiho instead of Akagi.

    In the Sibuyan Sea, Japanese strategy, you say the Iowa has 18 in. cannons, while in the Allied strat. you say it has 18.1 (which is correct) and you go on to say (in Jap strat) that the Iowas are faster, which in life is true, but in the game is false.

    I'm afraid I don't quite understand you when you mention the order of battle - I already have pictures for the map as well as what units are available on each team.

    The next person to give me screenshots illustrating the various points of Hunt for the Cruiser, however, gets FIVE cookies. =D

    I already did the Sub challenge missions, so I could probably do them again...albeit with difficulty.

    If anyone's up for it, screens from all three sub challenge missions would be greatly appreciated. I dare anyone to, on Coup de Grace, surface and take screenshots =P

    I don't know if you still wanted checks, but I noticed that your first sentance says, "Battlestations: Midway is a simulation video game developed by the Hungary division of Eidos Interactive."

    BSM isn't really a sim. its more arcadey than that.

    um, im not mad or anything, but i added the fleeing stratagy to the "battle of the Java Sea" challeng mission and the next day someone took it out.

    How can you take so many screenshots? Did you sue print screen and if so did you have to exit the game to paste it every time?
