Coral Sea Patrol
 
I am just finishing a "Coral Sea" patrol where your sub leaves Port Moresby
on the 5th of May. I have tried to make all the TFs original but the game
just doesn't have some of the ships needed so I did the best I could. I set
the routes as close to historical as I could from pics in my extensive WW2
library of books. Since aircraft won't attack other aircraft and the carriers
don't have the large air flight formations, I had to fudge on some of that too.
All in all, despite some of the shortcomings, it works out fairly well. If you patrol
in the area I have marked, you should see some air & naval battles. Best of all,
you can join in to sink or damage some of them yourself....

Ok, did a little more fudging with the larger air formations by putting in
some random air flights of from 6 to 12 planes. I set them all to 75% so
that they will not appear 100% of the time. Put some minefields in the
shallow waters to give the appearence of the enemy invasion forces
having to go around the land tip and not take any shortcuts. It should
be almost finished. I will test it tonight and hopefull if all goes right, I
can post if for DL sometime tomorrow....

Ok, the patrol works fine but I can't get the TGA pic file to load when
the game is at the opening screen (no pic). Othwise it is way better
and much more historical than the "Battle of the Coral Sea" the devs
put in as a mission. All they did was to put ships/planes from both
sides in the Coral Sea....

It would be cool to replace the campaign coral sea with this, possibly

FAdmiral 06-23-2007 03:29 PM

That might work !! Since Port Moresby is not a regular resupply port for
American subs, I put an American sub tender ship there docked with 2
Clemson escorts also docked. I even added 2 docked (next to tender)
older S-Boats to add some flavor. I put a Tambor class boat in for the
player but the mission always give me a P-class. I don't know what's up
with that?? I have everything done and working except for the dumb
TGA file from the SCDsee program. It just won't display for some reason.
I guess I could release it without it, it's just for show on the opening
screen anyway...

to me a historically correct campaign would be lovely.

FAdmiral 06-23-2007 04:26 PM

OK, here are the 2 files for the single patrol (not single mission)
Make a folder with the same name and place files into it.
Place the folder into the "Single Patrol" folder. You should see the
mission when you load the game....

Did all of the above and it wont show in game..All of the other folders in there have 3 files in them..So what do I do??

FAdmiral 07-02-2007 07:46 PM

Make sure that the name of the folder that you put the 2 DLed files into
has EXACTLY the same name. Make sure you put that folder into the
"Single Patrol" folder and not the "Single Missions" folder. The 3rd file
is just the TGA pic file and only is a display at the opening screen of
where the battle takes place.....

I did that sir and it wont show up...I'm running RFB 1.28 is that stopping it??

FAdmiral 07-02-2007 09:30 PM

I wouldn't think that RFB would stop it from showing up but may stop it
from completing the load of the patrol. Can you name some of the other
folders that are in where you have the "Coral Sea" folder? At the opening
screen when you load the game, are you clicking on "War Patrol"?
