The number of DCs is correct (not a typo on my part). And I've read elsewhere that somebody aboard the boat always kept count ... but, under the circumstances, I suppose he might've made a mistake.

The number of DCs dropped during a single pass would vary. Early on, some escorts would panic and drop quickly ... even before pinpointing the sub's location. Sometimes, though, they'd hang around for a couple hours without dropping a single DC.

That was July of 1943.

Perhaps there was another escort over the horizon.

lurker, I may have found another crash related to RSRD. On the west coast of the Philippines, northwest of Mariveles, I had the game CTD on me while watching the game progress on the navigation chart. The date was Dec. 8, 1941, with a Salmon-class sub.

1. Can you recreate the CTD on demand ?

Yep, it happened to me again. Same date, same general area (slightly south of where it occurred the first time).

can you post a screen shot of the area on the sh4editor map, also what other modes do you have loaded. The only ships in that general area are some fishing boats, but they all look normal, also what mission were you assigned?

It's the area along the immediate west coastline of the Philippines. The first time the CTD occurred it was a mission to patrol Lingayen Gulf, second one was to patrol the IndoChina sea lanes. The only mod I can see conflicting with it right now is RFB. Everything else is pretty much just graphics mods.

Conducted a controlled test based on the information that you provided. With Stock SH4 + RSRDC v102 was unable the recreated your CTD. With SH4, RFB131 and RSRDC v102 was still unable to recreate your problem. The only thing that I’ve seen so far that causes a CTD during the this time frame are “Radio files” see the following post

Default There I was on Patrol four outta Midway

Got sent to the Marshalls and dispatched two OLD small splits

Hung around for DAYS

Sent to the GIlberts got a coastal patroller and another small split

Sent to the southern Marshalls and dispatched another small split.

I am really lovin this

On patrol aroun Kwajelien and WHAM WHAM WHAM WTF! So I look aorund and I'm being shelled from something somewhere on the Island but nothing absolutely nothing shows on the map. I do see three unidentified ships in what must be a lagoon. Can't get at em cause there MUST be a reef that I deflected off of with no damage. Head about face and try to circle around kwajelien island and again WHAM WHAM WHAM. Was looking for a way through the reef but got SUNK by hidden shore fire! Teach Me! Try again tonight

Reall fun this
good thing I got a save to restart from
