I have a question about depth bombs, how many pieces did a destroyer have. During a dispute with three destroyers, they dropped 130 bombs is it plausible.

It depends on how many DC Racks/ KGuns/YGuns are installed on the deck.
1 DC Rack - 20 depth charges
1 KGun - 5 depth charges
1 Y gun - 6 depth charges

Easy enough, google frégates/destroyers etc :03:
In example, frégate River class had up to 150 depth charges...for one ship!
Little destroyer class Hunt type III had 110 depth charges.
Testimonies from Kaleuns who survived (like H.Werner) mentioned hard attacks with more than 300 depth charges launched for dozens of hours...

So yes, 130 DC with 3 DD is small average.

Thank you very much, Onealex!!! :yeah:
Fantastic work! This is getting better and better with every update!
One question if you don't mind... If I would like to have the stealth meter back, would it be enough to replace the Menu.ini file from a previous version that still has it or is it more complicated than that? not a matter of life and death, so if it is too hard to bring it back, it doesn't matter at all. Thanks a lot again and keep up the excellent work!!! :salute:

Replacing of menu.ini file will owerwrite other changes made by me. So the best way is to play on high realism.

Maybe due to tga files. Some modders who made new ship models did tga files different from GWX 3.0 tga files

It is very easy to put it back into any menu.ini file. I.e., look at the menu.ini items needed in a file with it present and then just add them to the ini file you want to use including any ini file renumbering needed. Something else may have physically taken its place in a modded ini file, in which case simply move it via the "Pos" lines to where desired on the screen.
I don't play with it, but understand why some would. I.e., irl you'd get much better info. from your phone man vs. the one in the game.

SH3 escort ai needs all the help it can get. If that means more depth charges than in reality, so be it. :)

1 It makes escort ships deaf in all cases
2 I don't like that mod

Fwiw, in shallow water, asdic was/should be not very effective.
But if it does find you, good luck you'll need it. :) I've never noticed any difference in deeper water from it being enabled.

I'm in 39 and all my torpedoes are running way bellow the depth I set, with magnetic and impact pistols is this normal?

Set correct torpedo depth which depends on wave heigh (please read Stiebler/Hsie patch documentation) Also turn off magnetic detonators.

As I recall of it, early on, uboats did have issues with all sorts of torp issues, from running deeper than what they were set, to duds, mag det either not going off as it should to going off sometimes not long after leaving the tube. All in all, all sorts of loverly issues... so if you have it check marked for duds then yes, that would be normal.
