Not necessarily...You can just use the 2.0.0 to 2.1.0 update. If you're about to start new career , then I would suggest you to download the full installer and reinstall your game completely (it will take just a few minutes with TWoS)...

hey I downloaded this mod and loved it but how time consuming it is with the limited TC I decided to divert back to vanilla, well after I uninstalled and reinstalled what I need I'm still stuck going no higher than 512 TC, I work 60 hour weeks so the quick targeting and TC helps me have enough enjoyment in a short time, i tried modifying the TC tables but still no luck and they were set to vanilla as well
please and ty for replys

That is easy. check this out for instance:


http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=228970

Did you change the correct file using notepad.exe or even better use OFEV after installing TWOS

[drive-letter for example D:]:[location OFEV is] \....\Silent Hunter 5\data\Applications\OptionsFileEditorViewer

check this out:

http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...66&postcount=6

and Post #1 of TWOS link. The answer is out there somewhere. And no reason to stop using TWOS, it is so much better.

and TC setting should not be to high. I think the advise for stable gameplay is indeed a max. of 512 (there is a link somewhere on Subsim with a discussion of this issue)

Happy Hunting.

Kind regards,



Aniuk

Hi Vecko, grate mod as always.

I'm running the int radio mod and really adds to the immersion - only change needed is to edit the entry's in the radio sound ini file so that to add in the radio frequencies ( not needed if you don't mind lousing the stock one

given the size might be work contacting the author and seeing if can use the installer and doing a TWoS version as an extra addon.
as currently is 58+ rar files and is 10GB unpacked

Just turn on all the flashy crap in XP, changed the background image, take some memory out of the box and clocked down the CPU. Then break Media player. Works like a charm.

Support Life belts at conning tower

vdr1981,
since I know you're very dedicated to realism I have an advice — German u-boats didn't attach the life belts at the conning tower during patrols at all. Exceptions were departure or refill at open sea in bad conditions. Maybe it's easy to delete it, but probably not.

Keep up your excellent work.

Werner.

Hello
I was just in May 1941 and just at my submarine in the battle of the convoy thrown by the deep charges American destroyer. Is this OK or is it a bug?

Very well analyzed Werner von Schmidt! If an improvement is planned here, pls as an optional mod, like the flag mod - i like the optic from the belts and i would like to be incorrect here.

I have another question, regarding neutral ships this time:
I've been given the order to attack neutral shipping which, without a doubt, are running for the Brits.
So do I just sink any ship in these waters (Eastern English waters)? Or do I just sink British ships? Or do I sink all ships MINUS the "officially" neutral ones (according to the Flag recognition chart, Sweden and Ireland are neutral)? And what about the neutral ones running with or without lights?
Thanks!

Best,
Brett

Watch your map for targets, Nations with red anchor = sink them. Nations with black anchor = Neutral/Friendly dont attack them.

Had the same situation at Operation Weserübung. Recived orders to attack any ships heading to Narvik port but it takes about one or two more days until Norway ports anchors were shown in red colour. After that i attacked Norway ships too.

Thanks!
So I just check the direction of the ship and sink whatever appears to head for an enemy port? Makes perfect sense, I guess.
But doesn't it rain havok on the renown system? It does not appear to take this, or the other aspects I mentioned, into account.
In the basic.cfg, it says

Code:
[RENOWN]
RenownReachGridObjCompleted=500
RenownPatrolGridObjCompleted=200
CompletedPatrol=100
NEUTRAL=-1
ALLIED=1
AXIS=-10
WrongShipSunk=-5000
FirstRankRenown=1000
SecondRankRenown=3500
EndCampaign=-5000
Best,
Brett

It will most definitely...If you don't use Real Navigation and You are not sure which units should not be engaged, make a good use of "Map Contact Colors" addon for TWoS...

Attacks by the U.S. military

The first American hostile action against Axis forces was on 10 April 1941, when the destroyer USS Niblack attacked a German U-boat that had just sunk a Dutch freighter. USS Niblack was picking up survivors of the freighter when it detected a U-boat preparing to attack. The Niblack attacked with depth charges and drove off the U-boat. There were no casualties on board USS Niblack or the U-boat. By coincidence, USS Niblack was later in the same convoy as USS Reuben James when that ship was sunk, and picked up survivors from USS Reuben James.
The first American hostile action against Axis forces that resulted in physical destruction was on 14 September 1941, when USCGC Northland destroyed a German weather station in northeast Greenland. The action was based on an agreement with Danish Ambassador to the United States Henrik Kauffmann in April 1941 to patrol the Danish island.[11]
The first American-caused casualties occurred on 7 December 1941 when the USS Ward attacked and sank a Japanese midget submarine near the entrance to Pearl Harbor prior to the commencement of the Japanese air attack upon Hawaii later that day. As a result of the attack on Hawaii, America declared war on Japan on 8 December 1941. Germany and Italy declared war on the United States three days later.
The first planned offensive action by the United States in World War II came in January 1942 when the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise attacked Japanese bases in the Marshall Islands.

Everything regarding gr2 format editing is very difficult and time consuming since we are lacking proper tools...Very few people know how to do this and unfortunately I can not say that I'm one of them...
