hey Kaleuns,
my sonar guy is detecting lots of whales (north of Irland), it's really getting annoying . I can't remember having read in any book that this was so common, if it happened at all. Am I just unlucky ?
There are several different spots where you can hear the whales. It can get annoying after a while. I wish we could tell the sonar guy to ignore them after he hears and reports them.

Occasional campaign transfer failures are exclusively caused by faulty ubisoft's game launcher and that's why I wrote this workaround in the first place. Cracked SH5 executable is for example immune to this problem...

Did you follow ingame campagn/flotilla transfer radio messages untill the end ? Can you summarize last week of your HT playtrough in few lines? That would be quite helpful....

Your modlist can work although I don't really like those torpedoes and gun "boost" mods...
Happy huning!

Yeah good work around for sure! In fact, as others said, it's better than the instant jump from patrol to bunker.

Ok, so yes Sir I followed all the messages from BDU regarding transfer.
I even tried the two other suggestions in your faq about Changing priorities etc.
Even tried the Campaign Advance test mod within GME.

This last patrol with CT fail:
I left Lorient on 26/2/41 without selecting a mission as I knew I only had a few days left.

I headed north west towards the south Ireland coast, sank a lone Small NP Tanker, and a day later (28th feb) came across a small Task force of 6 destroyers.
Fired 4 torps at them, only one kill.
Went deep and waited until they left....no damage to sub.
Surfaced and got away from the area,(destroyers also long gone) by this time it was midday on the 28th and I made a manual save.
Then just started making my way back towards Base. Stayed well away from traffic and the coast near lorient, then came all the failure messages after 1st March.

I didn't dock and end patrol until I'd tried everything else you suggest in the faq.

I got right up to the 8th of March on one save on TC with constant failure messages,despite saving/reloading and followinginstructions.

The patrol I did before this last one, if it makes any difference, was the one I mentioned that Failed - Strategic Supplies: Sink a tanker.


Cheers,

John.

Thank You very much John!
I'm really glad when I hear that my workaround works well even for relatively new Twos Captains.

Hardly...On the other hand, is it legal to sell broken product without any support or mentioning the true state of the product?

Yes no problems thanks!

Lots if good advice and tips in your FAQ.

Just for the record I have a genuine copy of SH5 brought from the Amazon link on this site....Apologies for the dumb question but what's all this about a 'Jack Sparrow' version?

Or was you just pointing out that folks with dodgy versions can be spotted because they don't get CT fail?

Sorry Vecko, not being rude or having a go at you Sir, some things in conversations go straight over my head lol! 'Blonde moments'
Probably my ASD. 🙄

Default Ark Royal - does it ever exist?

Details which you request in Problem Reporting, are comprehensively in my last post http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...8&postcount=14

Thank you in advance.
