I think that would be wisest. Let's hope the new version works for you

Well I've tried, but no joy. It comes up with "Dials1b.tga" has already been altered by the "MaGui F" mod. but when I agreed I haven't seen any difference within the game. I downloaded from "SUBSIM Radio Room Forums > Downloads > Silent Hunter III > Graphics mods-Charts addon" (I'm assuming that the updated version was put here?). However I also tried it by taking away MaGui F as well. Thank you for your patience. What would be embarrassing is that it is working and I've not even noticed the charts

It sounds like you got it working now, but I wonder why it still does not work... Some of the charts only slide visible if you take your mouse cursor to the left, right or upper edge of the picture.

You should all the time see this however in bridge view:



The charts in this picture you have to drag up and down with your mouse cursor.

Thanks for the reply and image. I have found pull outs in certain stations within the sub such as compass, ship speed, torpedo info but I think they are from MaGui or GWX. I still only get a recon book. Will try again tomorrow...it's a mystery.

That means it's still not working.

If you still have the motivation to keep trying to solve this mystery, could you post a screenshot like this for me, when you have installed the mod in JSGME?



That would make it clear for me that the files are where they should be.

It seems ok to me, so no help there. (BTW, my picture was bigger because www.imgur.com has that kind of picture size as a default)

I haven't much experience on Steam and I was wondering if that could make things somehow more difficult. I wouldn't know though. I only have Fallout: New Vegas as a Steam version.

What mods are you using and have you tried the mod without any other mods except GWX and MaGui F?

Ok now I think I got it. The problem seems to be that menu_1072_768.ini is not working properly - so I checked the package again. I found another careless mistake for JSGME users. Menu_1072_768.ini file is in a wrong place in the package. JSGME can't find it from where it is now, I think.

How to fix.

1. Unpack mod package.
2. Cut Menu_1072_768.ini
3. Move to data/menu
4. Paste.

I'll make another (yet again!) updated version of the mod to the downloads section in minute or two - which hopefully works as it should work

The file in the downloads section is now corrected. Keeping my fingers crossed now for a week or two

I think that this has demanded more patience from you than me as I don't need to do all that installing, uninstalling, loading, waiting, hoping and nope, it didn't work this time either routine

But I accept the thanks and thank you likewise - without your patience these faults would never have been noticed and corrected. Let's hope it works for you this time There's no guarantees, because of the nature of this mod is such that only by manually editing menu_1072_768.ini one can feel reasonably sure it'll work.

Well I've tried it a number of ways and still no luck. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong but I have to admit defeat! That sucks as I'm a stubborn s.o.b. As you asked earlier I have tried it with only GWX and MaGui F and also with only GWX. Other mods seem to work so I'm at least doing something right. I'll perhaps let someone with good IT knowledge who has the game within Steam in Subsim and hopefully they can point me in the right direction

Thank you for helping out with this rather frustrating puzzle. Time to sink some ships I guess

All the best sublynx and happy hunting

Still not working. Well that's a disappointment after all this trouble hunting. Let me know if you decide to install the mod manually and I'll help you through it, if need be.

If someone has succeeded in installing the mod with JSGME, please let me know. I only know of people who have modded it in manually.

That would be very helpful if you could perhaps give a step by step guide; I hope having a steam installation will not be a problem?

As I say I'm a stubborn chap (a bit like a biting dog that just won't let go) so to finally succeed would be cool. Incidentally it would appear that the other mods I've recently installed are working fine so small mercies.
