Quick question. I'm trying to play a campaign in RFB with manual targeting & the O'Kane targeting method. How can I access the stopwatch to figure target speed? It doesn't show up in the periscope command tab where I expect to see it

Default K

How go the conn tower upgrade for older classes? (porpoise salmon sargo) ? Is all ok? Or you.have bugs with radars that disappear etx after the refit? In tmo i had this problem but i upgrading manually.
How is in rfb? I m playing rfb and since i mantain older boats until late 43-44 for the challenge, i would know of there is this problem here too. Or if the conn tower cut in late war go fine withoyt bugs. (i m using a salmon class now. Start date sept 42. From freemantle.)
"They fired for 45 minutes, raising column of water around us, deck gun failed 3 times to fire, so we make it work with a hammer, and damaged 1 of them badly since we hit a ammo depot. At end with broken rudder and leaking fuel, skipper ordered to scuttle the boat, and to abandon ship." - Red Sea June 1940 from the tale of my grandpa, chief machinist, about the last fight of the R.smg Torricelli

Anyone know if there's metric map tools available for RFB? specifically the Nomograph? can I use this and just load it last in JSGME?

Yeah, it's quite a process getting your boat crewed up. I remember having to restart RFB many times to fill the slots - furthermore you are suppose to move the crew from Watch and Gun slots 'below' to fill empty slots every time you dive which became too tedious for my taste.

Happy Hunting!

Through lonely hours their vigil keep.
May peace their mission ever be,
Protect each one we ask of thee.
Bless those at home who wait and pray,
For their return by night and day."

Welcome to SubSim tjstefano. Where did you get your copy of SH4 from, and where did you install it? Do you know if your game has the Uboats with it?

Hello, tjstefano. Welcome to Subsim. Happy to have you with us.

Some quick questions for you. What are you're computer specs? Are you using a desktop or laptop? Where do you have SH4 installed? Is your copy of SH4 downloaded or from a disk. What are the specific error messages you're getting. If we are to help you, we need much more info on what is causing the problems.

Since you're asking; no.

If anything, the IJN escorts are very good at forcing me to dive long before I'd like to, and getting to my general location to ping and DC the hell out of me afterwards. Escorts are very wise. I stopped underestimating them a long time ago.

Using RFB v2.0.7 and RSRD. Only other mods added are the Razzle Dazzle Merchant skin and Less Plankton mods. All manually installed. I don't add or touch anything else (nor do I need to) in risking to break something.

If your lookouts or enemy escorts aren't spotting anything until they're right on top of each other, then it sounds as though the sim.cfg file may have been tampered with ( It is strongly recommended that users leave this file exactly as it is. This is especially the case for the [Mech] section of the file, where it is tempting to experiment with how ships interact with the waves - changing these values can have extremely adverse effects on AI spotting. Don't touch it.
