I have a save game for one of these type events. I saved before the attack started.

That is an Artificial "Intelligence" problem. Most planes, when attacking, do not know how to properly fly their airplanes, unless they are set to "Elite" status, and even at that, will still occasionally "stall" their planes, as you guys have witnessed. Anything lower than "Elite", and the planes, besides not seeing things", have issues even staying in the air when they turn. The big problem comes in with planes attached to ships, such as CV or CA, etc., is that plane assumes the competency of the ship, such that a CV that is "Competent" (middle setting) "launches" planes that are also "Competent", and they have issues making the first attack run, much less turning and making a 2nd run. "Eets-uh Catch-uh 22-uh..." This is one reason that you'll see most of the CV and similar set to "Veteran" level. So, you can either have "Ducimus' Super-Evil Planes", along with a ship they are attached to that will be capable of dodging any torpedo you shoot, and able to shoot your periscope lense out at 2500 yards within 30 seconds, and / or send a volley of torps of their own your way -OR- have "normal" ship AI, and planes that will occasionally crash on attack runs (which did happen in real life)... ??

that's not the story i read. episode 3 (goldmember) explained dr. evil's childhood and there was no reference to ducimus. only an evil belgian guy and his web-footed wife. and you know what country belgium is next to, don't you?



@Bleiente. we're just having a bit of fun.

Found a bit of a major problem. I submerged to hide from some planes, as I regularly do, but this time, when I surfaced, the watch crew didn’t appear on the tower, and CO2 started building up - despite the fact that the diesels were running!

That Co2 issue is a Stock game bug from day one.....we can't fix it. A workaround is for you to save your game before your crew dies, exit to the desktop (DO NOT use Alt-Tab. Quit the game entirely!), then restart and reload the save point.

By the way, NEVER use Alt-Tab to return to the desktop while leaving the game loaded. Some have said this Alt-Tab procedure is what causes the Co2 buildup, however it's been my past experience that it was NOT how I had it happen to me when playing the Stock game. It just happened. But, the advice of not using the Windows "shortcut" Alt-Tab is still a good one. SH4 doesn't like you leaving it running in the background while you step away.....exit the game.
