I'm having a problem with this mod;
"PULL DOWN PACIFIC MAP for SH4 for Patch V1.3 REVISION A
If you want to install this MANUALY as a STANDALONE VERSION OF ONLY THE PULL DOWN MAP!
you have to COPY PASTE THIS!!! in the "menu_1024_768"
C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 4 Wolves of the Pacific\Data\Menu
[G4B I1] to [G4B I9]"
I followed his instructions, but when I hit the gramaphone button, it turns green but does nothing else. Am I missing something? :hmm: :hmm:

If you pasted the text only into the .ini file and didn't include the graphic ( PULL DOWN PACIFIC MAP 1.4\Data\Menu\Gui\UserGramophone.dds ) in a JSGME mod setup or put it directly into your game, then you wouldn't get the map as designed.
If that is the case, just create a folder structure like above and copy the file into it and enable with JSGME. Alternatively, make a backup of your ....Data\Menu\Gui\UserGramophone.dds file and replace it with the one from the mod.

My bad, I read your post wrong, too:rotfl::damn: When you said it turned green, I thought you meant the area where the map was supposed to be turned green:doh:, not the button:arrgh!:
I've seen some folks that had the same problem due to the screen resolution they were using. If you look at the last two digits of the zone line for section [G4B I2] you'll see two zeros (quick, dive before they attack you:huh:). Seriously those numbers are an offset that helps determine where the object shows up on the screen. The first one is for horizontal movement (+ = right, - = left). The second is for vertical movement (+ = up, - = down). All of that is in pixels. I believe that the other folks that have had the problem in the past moved the graphic down on the page to get it to appear somewhere on the screen. I'd try changing those last two numbers to 100, -100 (to move it 100 pixels to the right and 100 pixels down).
