Besides the excellent links that THEBERBSTER pointed you to, it'd be easier to diagnose your trouble if you could tell us where you purchased your game (for example, Steam or Amazon, etc.), which version you are using, such as V1.3 or v1.5, (which is the Uboats version), and please tell us which folder you have the game installed in, such as "C:\Program Files (x86)\..."

The Fall of the Rising Sun Ultimate (FotRSU) mod can be easily installed with JSGME, as per THEBERBSTER's links above. However, be sure you empty your "My Documents \ SH4" save game folder before you activate the mod. Also, it is advisable to alter the SH4.exe file with the LAA applet, and the best place to read instructions for that are in CapnScurvy's Windows10; Large Address Aware; SH4 Install

Like THEBERBSTER said: "Welcome to SubSim!"

Hitman, and that is going to be the crowning glory of FOTRSU. You'll be able to roll your own game to the extent that is possible. We'll have plugin mods that are guaranteed not to screw up the rest of FOTRSU, but which will tune your game to play the way YOU want it to.

But first we have to be happy with the base game. We're getting much closer. There's still stuff to do. Then we'll get down to what really makes FOTRSU different from every supermod ever made for the game.

In effect, you'll be able to roll your own supermod.
That is one of the parts I appreciate more RR, the ability to once and for all end with the dreaded mod-soups that always break something else. A coherent, superb looking, error free base with certified plug-ins (or plug-outs!) is your genius idea. And those that do not want torpedoes from surface ships will just be a JGSME click away from having it.

Roll on FOTRSU!

Yes, it's intentional. Radar is radar, it picks up all objects...including planes. But no, it does not pick up only low flying aircraft.

The stock game does not pick up many of the objects it should, it's how the developers configured the game. Fotrs Ultimate does because in real life radar operations, a "blip" was determined to be a plane or surface ship by the speed the "blip" crossed the PPI screen. Faster movement meant it was a plane. You'll see the same thing in Ultimate's radar.

The stock game developers spent little time making a truly simulated radar system. The stock games SJ wouldn't pick up most surface ships, even when they were in eyesight range! There was no way of determining range to target due to not having a way of measuring a blip when it did appear. The SD, which used a different sender/receiver antenna, doesn't even have the actual radar unit simulated......it should look similar to the A-Scope design. But, their idea of the radar stations was to have only SJ (surface search), show on both the A-Scope unit and the PPI. Because of this hard coded game setup, there is little we can do to change these short comings.

We can improve the detection capabilities; improve the PPI screen to provide an accurate measuring "overlay" for all three range settings; even add a working ST radar antenna into the "night" (observation) periscope. But, there's a lot of things we can't do due to the limitations of the hard coded instructions by the game development.

Is it possible to bring OTC's omnimeter and range dial in to the GUI? Manually input range in to TDC sometimes critical - for instance I once encounter a DD in a super-heavy fog weather, which the DD only showed its fuzzy silhouette over the horizon and it made me impossible to lock on target to use the stadimeter, nor even input the range. However I finally hit it with the help of omnimeter and range dial. Not only such critical case, but night surface attack with radar also requires range dial.... FORTSU is great for me so far, but it's quite pity that there's no such a nice tool to help me in some cases...

So you've got the swivel back in your dance steps, eh? Are you ready to compete on Dancing With The Stars just yet?... In the meantime, yes, the v0.63 is still the latest. The next version won't be too much longer, but there are some details that need bending to the Capn's will just yet, but he is stubborn, and will keep at 'em . He calls it "determined", his wife says "bull-headed"... - what ~my~ wife calls me can't be re-printed on this web site...

CapnScurvy has plans for an OTC mod for FotRSU. Would that work for you, or do you just want those in the current view?

It is not "scheduled" in the current version of FotRSU, but does show occasionally as a Random, but very rarely. Your wish was our command, so in the next version, if you feel lucky, you can try to sneak into Truk Atoll and get it on certain dates. Good luck getting back out, though. As a reminder, in FotRSU, there are minefields and there are subnets around a lot of Japanese naval base installations - actually, in a lot of places. The later in the war you go, the thicker they get... just a heads-up. If I get the time, I'll try to do a couple of Lurker-styled Yamato and Musashi group travelings for the release after this next one... We do ~not~ plan on doing much of that kind of stuff though...

Absolutely loving it. One issue I saw mentioned a lot, and I had as well, was that I couldn't fire torpedoes, so to help anyone who reads this later with the same issue; PRESS Q TO OPEN THE TORPEDO TUBE, THEN FIRE.

Great mod, and I look forward to any future updates!
