Dang that sucks. Can you load a previous save or is that mucked up also?

The weather setting If I remember correctly is wind speed,many moons ago I seem to remember that certain weather conditions caused this,haven't had it happen to me(everything else besides:damn:) The wind speed needs to be 4 or above,if you look in the game save folder and it's 0,change it and try again,should work hopefully:03:

Here, no! The same problem with both saves. I hit escape and return to port, at least I saved the mission. The trouble was less 3 ships sunk and about 30000 tons. Mainly one has to do a patrol in one time only, no saving and finish latter.
With gmx 3.0 I am having this trouble, and can not understand why, did a clean install, two actually, since I forgett to delete some folders. Updated to sh3 commander, the mods are all gwx 3.0, don't know why this happends!:shifty:
PS: reply posted before i could read nikbear reply!

There is a section in the GWX manual that tells you how to deal with this. I would search the manual using the terms crash dive of doom.
