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
