Detection of depth sounding?
 
If I click that button to get the depth under keel will bad guys hear it and know where I'm at?

Installing
 
Ok so this is confusing, sorry I'm slow lol.

I did a fresh install of SH3 have it at "C:\SHIII" .. Haven't run the game yet or done anything.

Downloaded the latest OneAlex file (1.5.2), and unzipped it.

Reading the instructions.

Unpack
Set Start in Windows 7 compatibility mode for sh3.exe.

Which SH3.exe? The one I just installed or the one in the unzipped folder?
Am I playing the game out of the folder that I just installed or the folder I just unzipped?
Why does it look like an entire game is in the downloaded folder, SH3.exe included?

Help! ?

Jeff

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Approximate system requirements for a normal game (may be less, the megamod was tested on sufficiently powerful computers):
1. Processor I5 / I7 5th generation and higher (or its AMD equivalent).
2. Video card GeForce 900 series or higher (or its AMD equivalent).
3. Widescreen monitor or 1080p monitor. A Desktop is required, not a laptop.

INSTALLATION
1. Unpack the archive preferably using 7zip and install to your main C://drive folder, however DO NOT install to your Program Files.
2. Set 'Run in Windows 7 compatibility mode' for SH3.exe, JSGME.exe, SH3Cmdr.exe files and run these programs as administrator.
3. Run the game using the SH3.exe shortcut so that the game creates a save folder in your documents folder of your PC.
4. Set the parameters to English, German speech and English keyboard language then exit the game.
5. Use the JSGME utility (in the root directory) to install the necessary submods you want to use then select SH3Commander.exe
6. Check the box "Rollback automatically after exiting SH3", and choose the desired game options.
7. Launch the game by pressing Launch SH3! (blue tick), in the future run the game only through SH Commander. Enjoy!!! (edited)

P.S. no need for previous install of the game, game comes with the mod as Ubisoft doesn't support SH3 anymore so you use the.exe that comes with this mod, get rid of any old sh3 files/document folders/installations off your PC's and then follow the instructions I posted.

We can talk easier on the Onealex mod discord if you wish - https://discord.gg/bKCdQekE4W

i understand all that, what is happening nothing is installing it just runs.sh commander says it has nowhere to go,jsmg just opens showing me the mods.sh exe the icon starts the indro loads the screen for traing i click on it ctd. i just want to install it

stoppro 11-06-22 10:16 AM

I got it to work right out of the download file, new to me. thanks looks nice !

jscharpf 11-06-22 11:02 AM

I realized that in the end all I had to do was download the big file and use it. I wouldn't have to even had installed SH3 .
With that said, what I DID do was, install SH3, then copy all if the OneAlex files directly over all of my SH3 files..
I know that this was not recommended but it works just fine. I'm assuming it really doesn't matter.

Why don't torpedoes hit ships?
they pass under the keel, even if I put 1m as depth

Torpedo failure. This is historically accurate.
Early in the war the Germans had a lot of issues with torpedoes running too deep, exploding prematurely, not detonating at all, etc.

It's because of a built in realism feature called realistic torpedo failures which is part of .hsie realism features that most mega mods have included. If you read the v61b manual in the documentation folder within the main SH3 folder it will state the feature at what it does. Basically to ensure your torpedoes fail very rarely you need to take what ever windspeed is at the time . Ex says it 10m winds then you times windspeed by 4 divided by 10 and that's the depth you set your torpedo. So 10m x 0.4 /10 = 4 so 4m is minimum depth you need to set it.

Ok. thank you very much

@Cap Zap @Jerry @Alex B @Fifi, get your asses on Onealex's discord because it will be so much easier to talk to each other about the mod and other such things. If you don't want to then I understand but trust me once you start using discord you'll never go back to the old inconvenient subsim messaging. click the link make a free account with email and pass if you don't have one already and then bob's your uncle...easey peasey.

Where does one find the download? I saw an early post showing a YouTube video but the video is no longer available.
