i ask because that is what i am experiencing...for the first time. it has been years since i have performed lifeguard duty in sub school so remind me how close must i be for the lifeguard icon to light up (assuming it will light up)?
Unfortunately no, the game does not do "sensible" at all. You have to be inside a designated "rescue" map zone to be able to affect a pick-up.

Just like in this previous post: http://subsim.com/radioroom/showpost...postcount=7062

Anyway to avoid this?
(My crew of command room didn’t get promoted yet)
Was there ever a fix found for this situation??
Unfortunately, no easy fix. The one way to do it would be to reduce the number of promotions allowed, and the number of Petty Officers allowed. We'll consult our experts and see if it's possible to have more than one face associated with a given rank. Don't hold your breath though...

As for "dingbat" escorts... I don't know what to say. When Rockin Robbins gets finished with this next mix (fingers crossed), it should have what we've been experimenting with in the 05 Patch, as well as better flags (a texture issue), and maybe (fingers crossed) a working 50 caliber machine gun. If it doesn't work, it will not be on the boats. The big thing though, is an elevated AI level, which with the escorts set where they are, should have them on top of you in less than two shakes. Just be certain that you do a clean SH4 install, which would include deleting the Save folder prior to the re-install. Do NOT count on the next version being backward-compatible. If the escorts still aren't stronger, I have a small suspicion (a sub-set of the escorts) of what might be the issue, but we'll see what you find. Remember though, early in the war, other than the Task Force and some of the Troop Convoys, the escorts will be weak, while what you find in mid-43 on is an increasing amount of and skill level of the escorts, until you get to some small convoys with more escorts than ships, and all the escorts have multiple throwers and 100+ cans each... - As I've seen someone (KaleunMarco??) mention, they usually leave a ship in the convoy, so that at least some of the escorts have something to guard and protect...

I have found this to be untrue. In my last career I came across some pilots and I thought sure why not try and it let me pick them up.

Could you at least make him look like Lauren Bacall? If they all have to look the same I certainly prefer it if all those hims were her.

I should say "and get renown points" for a rescue objective. I wonder if you get the 150 renown for the "survivor" himself? Did you have any difficulty getting them onboard? They don't hang around long after a crash, and seem to have a tendency to disappear just as you lend a helping hand... at least, that's what happens when I try...

Maybe a Hedy Lamarr and a Cyd Charisse?

it sounds like you installed 1.4 and are modding with 1.5 mods which is not going to be successful.
I re-downloaded and did a clean install for 1.5, donwloaded JSGME and extracted FOTRS into the folder like normal and....nothing! Game plays vanilla still. I guess I did something wrong somewhere?

Where do you have the game installed Admiral Lutjens? Such as "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam \SteamApp \Common\" or maybe "D:\Games \Silent Hunter 4\" ?? Is the MODS folder for JSGME in that same folder? Is the folder "100_FalloftheRisingSun_Ultimate_v0.80_RC2_PublicB eta_EN" under that MODS folder? Thanks

That looks like the dial faces or needles lost their transparency, but the depth one didn't?... did you happen to check the dials in the Control Room? the Conning Tower interior? I have not ever seen that, but then again, there is a lot about this game that I have not seen... - Was this Save from a previous game state, such as having one of the test mods installed previously, and then removed when you re-loaded the save?

I have never seen a graphic glitch like that. Graphic glitches seem to be a very rare thing from my years of playing.
