Muckenburg, Not a bug. U.S. Navy ships did escort convoys before the U.S. entered the war. They would attack German subs just like any other escort would. One destroyer the USS Reuben James was sunk by U-552 on 31 October 1941 while performing escort duties on a convoy headed to England.

Upon the outbreak of war in Europe in September 1939, she joined the Neutrality Patrol, guarding the Atlantic and Caribbean approaches to the American coast. In March 1941, Reuben James joined the force established to escort convoys sailing to Great Britain. This force escorted convoys as far as Iceland, after which the convoys became the responsibility of British escorts. She was based at Hvalfjordur, Iceland, under command of Lieutenant Commander Heywood Lane Edwards.

On 23 October, she sailed from Naval Station Argentia, Newfoundland with four other destroyers, escorting eastbound Convoy HX 156. At daybreak on 31 October, she was torpedoed near Iceland by U-552 commanded by Kapitänleutnant Erich Topp. Reuben James had positioned herself between an ammunition ship in the convoy and the known position of a German "wolfpack", a group of submarines poised to attack the convoy. Reuben James was hit forward by a torpedo meant for a merchant ship and her entire bow was blown off when a magazine exploded. The bow sank immediately. The aft section floated for five minutes before going down. Of a crew of seven officers and 136 enlisted men plus one enlisted passenger, 100 were killed, leaving only 44 enlisted men and no officers who survived the attack.

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
yea I was in the main.cfg file and edited them but yea still stuck at 512 I just don't have the time for full SIM atm lol but ill give it a look and post back thankyou

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
That's not how I read the post from Excell. The Main point is the colour of the Port Icons in each country . Ships travelling in and out of any port is not a reliable way to determine Neutrality.

I know the history of World War II, but I did not know it was incorporated into the game. interestingly. But otherwise thank you for the explanation.

If you uninstall your game, have you deleted your saved games from the Ubi server and the folder in the documents?

No, but there should be a sh5 folder in your documents folder.

Have fun and did you read the instructions in the Option File Editor Viewer folder. I think it is called How to use OFEV_readme (MS Word document)

Try again sometime.

Kind regards,

Aniuk
