Fall of the Rising Sun Ultimate Project thread


For years the cry has been "Why doesn't Silent Hunter 4 have a mod comparable to the great mods of SH3? Where's the GWX of Silent Hunter 4?" As unfair as that question is, with TMO, RFB, RSRDC, SH4 has been well served with memorable mods, skillfully written.


But my favorite has always been Fall of the Rising Sun 1.3, even though it was plagued by bugs and ultimately was not very playable. Only in FOTRS did I see echoes of GWX in Silent Hunter 4. Only there did I see beautiful ships and a great atmosphere. But because of the bugs, I laid it aside and played TMO--king of gameplay!


Then I saw AOTD_MadMax' video on FOTRS 2.0. I was absolutely astounded. The sound, the graphics were magnitudes better than anything I had seen from the Silent Hunter series. But then the comedown: FOTRS 2.0 was for SH4 v1.4 only. Wouldn't work for U-Boat missions, and it was balanced for multiplayer. That means single player might be pretty daunting. It was.


I found FOTRS vanishing from the Internet, site by site gone. Soon there would be no FOTRS of any version for anyone. Neal Stevens encouraged me to bring those versions home to Subsim so they could live for everyone here. Then fitzcarraldo and xtbilly contacted me about a crazy idea......


The result, well, it's right here. I didn't have to find the fine people on the Fall of the Rising Sun Ultimate Edition team. They found me and volunteered so I can take no credit. But time after time the perfect person for the problem at hand just appeared.


A special shoutout to CapnScurvy who brought his exquisite optics from OTC and Jeff-Groves who showed us how far in the woods we were when we thought we were on the home stretch two months ago. His help has been invaluable in helping us root out the errors and bad translations in the ships, planes, missions and files. He didn't give us many fish. He taught us to fish.


We also thank our closed beta testers:

Can anyone please let me know where I can get the missing files for this mod.

After loading and when the game starts up for real (after video) and near end of load bar I get windows generated error messages stating files could not be found.

Looking through the mod .zip They were not contained there.

Conclusion - this great looking MOD will not work for me.

Here are a few that are missing:-

data/menu/data/black80.tga (about 5 times)
data/menu/skins/american/gui/intelligenceunits/paper.dds
data/menu/skins/american/gui/layout/radio_messages.dds
data/menu/gui/tdc/tdc_metric.tga

and there will undoubtedly be more . . . .

PS I know it must be my fault but I can't go any further !!!

Thanks for your time to help me.

I'm really looking forward to playing this mod. I have followed Capt. Scurvy's post on the correct installation of SHIV in the root directory and applied LAA.

The above link is indeed broken but I found a working link elsewhere in the SHIV forums.

Loaded Fortus using JSGME onto stock SHIV 1.5.

After the initial loading screen, I get white windows.. no graphics whatsoever. Hepl !
