Hi AD
Do you mean something like this?
Just a bigger map version.





You can make the maps bigger to print them but not improve the quality of the resolution.

Regarding post #57, the four bearing tutorial. Please delete this if it's not appropriate to ask here.

The in-game four bearing tutorial text says the course of the ship is 206. I keep coming up with a course of about 198 after the third bearing reading. The true bearing for the contact in order are 56, 61, and 68 according to the tutorial text. I've gone through and done the map work twice and get the same result.

Any idea what I may be doing wrong? I did zoom in when drawing lines to get it as accurate as I could. I've done it enough that I get the concept and what I should be doing but I question it since I get a different result....

You did the right thing.

Target's course is 151 AFAIK from the tutorial.

56, 61, and 68
68 will depend on where and how far you moved your boat too, as will be the distance to you take up to shoot at the target will be different between players IIRC.

Long time since I did this tutorial.
The tutorial is taken from Trevally's words and diagrams not from me.

The first three bearings are while not moving and I'm just using the numbers that the script is saying to use. Interesting that the target course of 151 and what I get, 198/9, is 360. I wonder if I'm reading the wrong side of the compass, lol.

Thanks for the input and I'll check to see if I may be reading something wrong. I've yet to play the game. Got it last week and I've just been watching videos about it.

Hi b
Don't forget to get a true bearing which is essential you have to take your own course bearing into account as well.
That is why each time you do the tutorial the last bearing is likely to be different because you have moved the boat.

Not sure why it is saying it is obsolete as the mod is still downloadable.
Do not know if it is compatible with TWOS you would have to test and see.

Thanks for the greetings.

Here http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=205625 in the original post by Macardigan he says its obsolete.
But I have followed your advice, downloaded the mod and tried to play with TWOS and its not compatible

I am not surprised as it would make too many file changes.

Keyboard Changes Needed In The Options File Editor Viewer (OFEV) with Church's SHV 1.01 Keyboard Commands 1.1 Mod

Please note that TWOS has a few different settings to the Stock Keyboard.
Church’s and Stormy’s are AFAIK identical.

If you wish to change your Stock keyboard to one that can give you a Hydrophone bearing by pressing the Z key then you may wish to change your keyboard layout.
Church's SHV 1.01 Keyboard Commands 1.1
Abbreviated to > CKC.

One other major change over the other keyboards is the W-A-S-D keys are replaced with the arrow keys as is used in the moving around the Maps.

This mod should always be last in JSGME and not be overwritten.

Keyboard Key Information.
C > Default > Compass and Rudder.
C > CKC > Crash Dive.

Z > Default > Silent Running.
Z > CKC > Nearest Contact.
This has to be accessed from the Compass Bar and no key commands can be set for this in the OFEV.

Changes need to be made in the OFEV for the following.
Radio Messages > Change from I to F.

Teleporting Bar > Change to T to Y unless used for Decoys in TWOS .

Torpedo Load > Needs a key?

Radio > CKC uses T.

Message Box > Needs a Key?

M Key > Map > CKC uses > F3.

Z Key > Silent Running > CKC uses > Chief Engineer Icon > Not F8 as shown in picture.

Remove Navigation Marks > Change to Shift + S.

Shift + X > CKC uses > Follow Warship.

Picture 1 > Church's keyboard layout.


Picture 2 > Stormy's keyboard layout.



Picture 3 > TWOS keyboard layout.



Picture 4 > Stock keyboard layout.

Default A Pictorial Step By Step Guide Through The Wolves Of Steel (TWOS) Installer

A Pictorial Step By Step Guide Through The Wolves Of Steel (TWOS) Installer

Preface
Vecko must be commended for making the installation of his Mega Mod very easy to install players must not forget that there is more to do in the installed documents.
Various PDF instructions must be taken note off for the game not only to be installed fully and correctly but launching the game, setting up your Career, Bunker saves and more all need to be done in a certain way.

Many of the problems posted on the TWOS thread are because players have not bothered to look at the PDF instructions.
Pictures 27,28,29, will draw your attention to these important instructions.

It should be noted that TWOS is 100% reliable even though it has over 100 mods and patches.
Problems occurring after you have installed will undoubtedly be down to something that you have not followed through correctly.
One of the most common mistakes is not updating your game to v1.2 after the initial install.
If you are a culprit of this go to the Support, Gameupdater folder and click on the GU application.

Installer Pictorial Overview

Picture 1 > Shows the downloaded mega mod Zip file.


Picture 2 > More Info shows because the Publisher is Unknown so warns you about proceeding further.

Default You Can Have More Than 1 Silent Hunter 5 Game By Using The MultiSH5 Application

You Can Have More Than 1 Silent Hunter 5 Game By Using The MultiSH5 Application > Pictorial

Download link to application,
[S5M]_MULTiSH5 By BL!TZKR!EG

Multi SH5 allows you to have multiple game copies of Silent Hunter 5 all being independent of each other by using this useful application.
Each created copy of Silent Hunter 5 must have ir’s own dedicated 3 digit saved game folder.

When you first install your game from whatever source immediately update the game using the game updater gu from the Support folder found in your main game folder.
With this installattion now updated to v1.2.0 you can now make multiple copies.

Always keep 1 copy of your game un-modded as the Master which you can use to take your copies from.


Picture 1 > New folder for MultiSH5 download.
This makes it easy to copy and paste the application into each new SH5 installation.


Picture 2 > Zip file downloaded.


Picture 3 > Go to the Extract Tab.


Picture 4 > Copy and OK.


Picture 5 > Exit.


Picture 6 > Highlight the application, right click with your mouse and select Copy.


Picture 7 > Select the game you want to install to and paste the application.


Picture 8 > Multi SH5 is now in the main game folder.
Double click on it to open the application.


Picture 9 > The SH5 application needs to know where to find your game folder.
Ok to accept the path.


Picture 10 > Enter a 3 digit abbreviation for your saved game folder.
Ok to accept.


Picture 11 > The SH5 exe has configured the chosen saved game name.


Picture 12 > In your documents folder you will not yet see this 3 digit saved game folder.


Picture 13 > Start the game from the SH5.exe


Picture 14 > The game will load to the main menu where you must see the correct game version v1.2.0


Picture 15 > Pressing the Windows key and going to your Documents folder you will now see the saved games folder has been installed.


Picture 16 > Click on the Silent Hunter icon showing in the task bar to return to the main menu and Exit the game.


This completes the tutorial.
