Dangerous Waters Update Version 104 Build 378 (English)
[Released as Patch 104 to the Public]
[Also released as Dangerous Waters Deluxe - RETAIL]
================================================== ======
================================================== ======
-------
NOTES:
-------
Save game files which were created with prior versions, will no longer be compatible with this
version of Dangerous Waters.
-------
FIXES:
-------
- Added variable in "dangerouswaters.ini" which controls the likelihood of torpedos exploding
on countermeasures (e.g. ".PercentTorpsExplodeOnCM 0" up to ".PercentTorpsExplodeOnCM 100").
In multi-player matches, the host's .INI setting will be used by all players. By default
the value is set to ".PercentTorpsExplodeOnCM 50".
- Added variable in "dangerouswaters.ini" which controls the likelihood of all weapons acquiring
dead/sinking platforms (e.g. ".PercentDeadPlatformsIgnored 0" up to ".PercentDeadPlatformsIgnored 100").
In multi-player matches, the host's .INI setting will be used by all players. By default
the value is set to ".PercentDeadPlatformsIgnored 10".
- Corrected an issue in which the Kilo was capable of creating Sonar contacts at excessively long ranges.
- Fixed an issue in which AI aircraft were not dropping contacts when they had lost sensor contact.
- Modified buoyancy model so that ships do not rock excessively at Sea State 1.
- Fixed crash when launching the DSRV from submarine platforms.
- Updated MH-60 model and AQS-22 on Dipping Sonar (addressed the reversed normals issue
which was causing issues with the self-shadowing paradigm).
- Updated the Freighter model and textures with the one used in the Steam trailer.
- Updated FFG model and textures.
- Updated 688(I) model, textures, and masts.
- Strike missiles were modified so that their approach angles yielded a more effective result
against their respective land targets.
- Localized versions (French/German) can now utilize the Mission Editor doctrine language and are
able to Save and Load their work as intended.

- Fixed localization error for the USNI data in the French version.
- Some of the French scenarios were localized incorrectly and would not load correctly; this has
been corrected.
- Localized versions (French/German) should be able to multi-play with the English version without
any warnings or Database inconsistencies.
- Corrected AI aircraft order persistence, which makes them more decisive during attacks.
- Fixed issue in which passive self-noise was being considered by active sensors.
- Torpedo speed vs. fuel issue was corrected.
- Corrected an issue which prohibited "nested tactics at waypoints" from being invoked properly.
- Addressed torpedo anomaly which caused the torpedos to not behave as expected.
- Refined the buoyancy model to allow a more stable ascent and descent in the submarines
and to allow them to maintain their depth without unnecessary oscillation.
- The Akula Towed Array should no longer be accidentally severed by the propeller.
- Fixed speed/pitch issues on the FFG when player issues hard rudder orders.
- Corrected a pathfinding issue fixed which could sometimes cause the game to crash if
a waypoint was deemed to be incorrect or unreachable by the algorithm.
- Fixed a crash in the Towed Array station on the FFG.
- Corrected a localization error in the German campaign mission "004_Qingdao.mc".
- QuickRepair and QuickAircraftLaunch now controlled correctly in multiplayer.

Dangerous Waters Update Version 103 Build 367 (English)
[Released as Patch 103 to the Public]
================================================== ======
================================================== ======
-------
NOTES:
-------
Save game files which were created with prior versions, will no longer be compatible with this
version of Dangerous Waters.
Manual Errata has been updated in SCS-DW_CombinedManualErrata.pdf. This file contains all errata
that has been issued to date.
-------
FIXES:
-------
- Fixed the FFG throttle to properly correlate with a necessary propeller diameter change.
- The IR sensor that was previously assigned to the SLAM-ER was removed.
- Fixed a problem which was causing the sub motion model to dive more slowly than intended.
- Depths for the sonobuoys and dipping sonar have been adjusted to compensate for the more
realistic thermocline layer modelling.

- Fixed the FFG's AutoTMA which was not utilizing the various speed rulers effectively.
- Adjusted the AutoTMA's performance on "bearings only" solution so that it would obtain a
more reasonable solution over various time periods (i.e. few or multiple lines of bearing).
- Fixed an issue in the FFG Bridge that forcing the player to input an ordered speed twice to
obtain the desired speed.
- Corrected an anomaly in which a surface contact's signal would sometimes disappear and then
re-appear as its object center would be rising and falling with the ocean wave model.
- Fixed an issue which cause the client to never see the Host's platform in Multiplayer.
- Corrected an issue in which the AI-controlled diesel submarines were incorrectly operating on
diesel engines when it was not intended.
- Fixed a crash that was caused when the FFG wasn't accurately following the sync-ed Helo while
operating in REMRO mode.
- All torpedos were speeding up to 55kts despite the designated input by the player, this was fixed.
- Corrected an issue in the physics engine which causing the subs to dive/surface too slowly.
- Fixed a cheat on the Kilo where players' could mark a target even though it wasn't visible
on the BroadBand Sonar display.
- Fixed a problem where the Kilo Demon was not showing data when the initial tracker/contact was
assigned in Narrowband instead of Broadband (which the Demon data is derived from).
- Fix provided for the MH60 Dipping Sonar (Active mode) in which any ping emitted was not heard by
other players in multi-player.
- Fixed a problem with the Ming class submarine which had incorrect torpedo launcher orientation.
- Corrected a crash caused by loading certain password protected missions.
- Made a small enhancement which prepends the mission time to each report.
- Fixed a minor problem in which a "Steady On Course" crew report would be played immediately after
the player inserted an initial waypoint.

Dangerous Waters Update Version 102 Build 361 (English)
[RETAIL EDITION - Not Released as a Patch]
================================================== ======
================================================== ======
-------
NOTES:
-------
Save game files which were created with prior versions, will no longer be compatible with this
version of Dangerous Waters.

-------
FIXES:
-------
- "Screen flashing" has been fixed (when running in full-screen exclusive mode). Also, a
noticeable increase in frame rate should result from this change.
- Corrected the speed vs OS noise bug in the submarines ("Sound vs. Speed" fix).
- Air to Surface missiles can no longer attack submerged subs
- Fixed active sonar detection range problem
- The stadimeters on all 4 subs now remember which platform was selected last time when
a player re-enters the screen. Also, the list is now circular returning to the first entry.
- Kilo BB sound cheat bug was removed.
- MH-60 Dipping Sonar sound cheat bug was removed.

- Kilo speed bug (where speed increased to 18 knots when diving and ordering ahead 2/3)
was fixed.
- The speed lock buttons were changed to behave so that they will stay locked whether the
autocrew TMA is enabled or disabled AND the player can still enter speed, course, bearing
and range values even with the locks on. Autocrew was taught to honor the locks as he
generates a solution.
- The way that TMA on submarines handles "manual solutions" is improved AND manual solutions
can now be handled for the first time by the FFG TMA.

- There was a problem where the FFG's acoustic display would stop displaying data from either
helo's buoys when the player synchronized with the 2nd deployed helo. This bug was fixed.
- Corrected a problem with the FFG Towed Array which caused loaded "save games" to ignore changes
in the contact list.
- Fixed a problem where the FFG's AI helo had its loadout restored when a saved game was
loaded.

- Fixed the buoy waypoint list so that a loaded "save game" now gives correct waypoint count.
- Fixed a problem where the scenario loader would crash when reading an encrypted scenario file that
had Dynamic Groups.
- Fixed a problem where the FFG would get a lower ordered speed (thus causing the FFG to slow down for
no reason) when a player first went to the Bridge Screen.
- Fixed a problem where the compass rose would disappear when the player left the bridge while on a bridge
wing and then returned to the bridge wing.
- Fixed an SSN21 Display bug where the value that was labeled SNR on the Demon Screen was actually signal
strength instead of the actual signal-to-noise ratio.
- Fixed a problem where the ambient noise continued to play after the MH-60's dipping sonar was damaged.
- Fixed a problem where FFG controlled by an MP player (who was not the host) was able to set waypoints
for its helo, but the helo would not delete the waypoints after each was reached.
- Fixed situation where AI subs would track a surface target and might not ever attack that target
if it was initially detected outside of firing range.
- Change was made to the Sonobuoy/GRAM screens (all platforms) to fix an issue in which buoys that were
labelled as "out of range" would sometimes transmit data when the MODE was cycled.

Dangerous Waters Update Version 101 Build 357 (English)
[Released as V101 Patch to the Public]
================================================== ======
================================================== ======
-------
NOTES:
-------
Save game files which were created with v1.00, will no longer be compatible with this
version of Dangerous Waters.
Attention Scenario Creators!: Even though Mission Editor will allow it, you cannot name a
goal and a script by the same name.
The "Sonar Profile" document that was mistakenly omitted from the final build (version v1.00)
has now been included (Thank you to John Steed for creating the document).
-------
FIXES:
-------
- The FFG Towed Array Assign ATF method now checks the validity of all trackers.
- Nav UID's were changed to have a root number based on multiplayer ID.
Waypoint-reached messages coming from the sim are now passed to all players on your platform in MultiStation games.
- Fixed NavalSimEngine crash when aircraft re-emerged from hangar.
- Fixed NavalSimEngine crash when objects were dynamically removed from scenario (Sicilian Wedding)
- Improved the font-blending algorithm to stop the mouse stuttering and increase overall
frame rate.
- It is now possible to leave the FFG Missile Control Screen while unloading an SM-2 or a Harpoon
and when you return, the rail will behave as expected.
- The DEMON speed in the FFG Towed Array Screen is now correct.
- The OTS buoy display is now independent of the loadout so that buoys will always launch.
- Corrected a string overrun in the Acoustic Display on the FFG and the P3.
- No longer allow charging HP Air while the emergency blow vents are open.
- Made the speed that a single diesel engine can achieve dependent on the depth of
the KILO.
- Corrected a problem in the KILO where the user could not force the submarine to
ignore waypoints.
- The TMA was improved to ensure that the newly created merged contacts always appear
in the top of the drop down list.
- All Radars were using meters per second instead of knots when creating a solution.
This was corrected.
- The diesel engines will now turn off if the snorkel mast is damaged.
- Sometimes Towed Array trackers do not get a valid sierra name and number, this was
addressed.
- Campaign mission "Strait of Malacca" - 688's "MISSION COMPLETE" goal was referencing
an incorrect goal that was not related to its mission.
- Campaign mission "South Korea" - Helo closest to ownship FFG will now recognize and
follow ASTAC ordered waypoints.
- Removed any delays that were not allowing the STIR to go to CWI. This is an experimental
fix since this bug could not be reproduced.
- TMA autocrew slowed to only change the selected solution every 5 seconds.
- Single Mission "Liberian Liberation" - Seals will now rescue the hostages.
- Single Mission "African Bees Nest" - Lookout autocrew will now identify the pier so it
remains visible.
- The Collins was made to have an appropriate noise level.
- The MAD sensor range was shortened to allow very deep submarines to escape detection.
- In multiplayer, the client FFG could never control its own helo (while the server could).
- In the multiplayer mission, MP4-NGFS.mp, the second FFG's helo was defined before
the helo itself was defined, so the Second FFG could never control its inflight helo.
This has been corrected.
- A Saved Game bug was fixed where the game crashed after load. If there was an aircraft
on the deck of an aircraft carrier when the aircraft carrier was hit, the game would
crash.
- Fixed a Multiplayer infinite loop that occurred when the host tried to merge two
solutions that were the same solution together.
- Altered the Quick Mission databases which was generating some missions with zero enemies
present.
- Additional verifications added to ensure that entities "still exist" before attempting to
reference them in the NavalSimEngine.
- Fixed the frequency alignment problem between the Frequency Waterfall and the NB profile
display. Also added the ability for the profile display to report the frequency under the
mouse.
- Fixed a logic error in all subs where damage to starboard tubes was processed on the port
tubes and vice-versa.
- Fixed the infinite marking problem when playing in multi-station mode.
- Fixed the strange character problem which was showing up in the 688/seawolf BB screen

- Removed the problem in the BB DDI where the ambiguous contact was showing up as the
assigned Sierra.
- Fixed a problem with the trackers losing their identity after the contact was lost and
regained.
- Fixed a problem where the periscope on/off switch on the 688 got out of sequence when
the periscope was ordered raised by voice command.
- Fixed a problem where a non-ambiguous contact became orphaned when the TMA dropped the
ambiguous contact.
- Fixed the problem of mirrored sierra numbers showing up under the cursor when the
contact has not been resolved.
