Description
Ok Captain's just a simple cut and paste of Munchausen's work (Manual Range and Mast Height Dial Fix) onto EasyAOB_FotRSU.

Tested on Sub school torpedoe attack lesson, all seems to be good.

Use this one instead of EasyAOB_FotRSU.

Here are Munchausen's notes on Manual Range and Mast Height Dial Fix.

Manual Range and Mast Height Dial Fix for v1.4 and v1.5 by Munchausen
================================================== ================================================== ==========================================

I tried the mod and found that the index marker was stuck in one position on the mast height dial. So I fiddled with the settings in both sections (Dial58/59) without much luck until I finally decided to see what happens if I enabled both. Turns out it can be done.

This is what I did: in the data/ menu/ cfg/ dials.cfg file

locate this section:

[Dial58]
; will be changed by code
Name=TorpedoSolution_Mast_Height
Type=70; DIAL_TGT_MAST_HEIGHT_INTERNATIONAL
Cmd=Set_tgt_mast_height_international;
Dial=0x431A0002
CrtVal=0x431A0001
NewVal=0x0
DialVal=-90,98
RealVal=15,130; height
Circular=Yes
CmdOnDrag=Yes;
Logarithmic=7.189;4.656
;RelativeDrag=Yes <--- delete semicolon
;SndStep=5
;SndList=1,Menu.TDC.AngleOnBow,360
[Dial59]
; will be changed by code
Name=TorpedoSolution_Temporary_Range
Type=68; DIAL_TGT_RANGE
;Cmd=Set_tgt_sel_value; <--- delete first semicolon
Dial=0x431A0001
CrtVal=0x431A0003
NewVal=0x0
;DialVal=10,0
DialVal=17,0 <--- change value to DialVal=10,0
RealVal=11000,220; range
Circular=Yes
;CmdOnDrag=Yes <--- delete semicolon
Logarithmic=-0.98;51.0
;RelativeDrag=Yes <---delete semicolon (makes a big difference)
;SndStep=5
;SndList=1,Menu.TDC.AngleOnBow,360

------------------------------------------------------------------

FINISHED VERSION:

now when your finished making changes it should look exactly like this:

[Dial58]
; will be changed by code
Name=TorpedoSolution_Mast_Height
Type=70; DIAL_TGT_MAST_HEIGHT_INTERNATIONAL
Cmd=Set_tgt_mast_height_international;
Dial=0x431A0002
CrtVal=0x431A0001
NewVal=0x0
DialVal=-90,98
RealVal=15,130; height
Circular=Yes
CmdOnDrag=Yes
Logarithmic=7.189;4.656
RelativeDrag=Yes
;SndStep=5
;SndList=1,Menu.TDC.AngleOnBow,360
[Dial59]
; will be changed by code
Name=TorpedoSolution_Temporary_Range
Type=68; DIAL_TGT_RANGE
Cmd=Set_tgt_sel_value;
Dial=0x431A0001
CrtVal=0x431A0003
NewVal=0x0
DialVal=10,0
RealVal=11000,220; range
Circular=Yes
CmdOnDrag=Yes
Logarithmic=-0.98;51.0
RelativeDrag=Yes
;SndStep=5
;SndList=1,Menu.TDC.AngleOnBow,360

------------------------------------------------------------------
if you want you can just copy and paste the finished version into the cfg file.

Now, I can input any range to the TDC and also adjust the mast height by doing this:

- Drag index marker (outer dial) full left.
- Rotate inner dial counter-clockwise to desired range.
- Send range to the TDC.

Enabling “RelativeDrag” makes it possible to manipulate the two dials accurately. Also, the stadimeter still works ... and I feel like I’m using it as intended: measuring mast height.

NOTE - This was an improved and better working version of the original mod that was done by ottos

Well.. have tried the manual method and the JGSME way and still the range dial doesn't allow individual selection, only the mast height allows a change. And yes, also tried copy and paste manually. Must be missing something here. It was working with GFO, but since installing FOTRS can't seem to get it working.

Thanks in advance for any guidance offered!

Sorry, been gone a very long while and forgot to disable the mod before editing the ini file. Were good now, please disregard the previous post and thanks for the great work! Looking forward to checking out FOTRSU

Most respectfully,
Soundman
