Hello the_beast.


Can you navigate to the folder your FotRSU is located and goto
Data > Movies > Intro & inside you should have:
Intro.wmv
Intro.wmv
Can you run each file from that folder and see if they work please, without the game running...

Also, for whatever reason, the game seems to "save" all of the duds for one string in a row, such that you might have a boatload with only one dud one trip, then the next trip, the first six you shoot are bad, the next 3 good, and then the next five are bad, then back to a streak of good ones. An add-in mod is planned to increase the dud rate for those that desire that.
Hey, It's me again bothering

Great, and what about the depth control? Is it the same thing with that one?

I was looking at the file I started to set-up to change some of the settings yesterday, and from the looks of things, you should have depth-keeping trouble from the beginning until mid-1943. There should also be impact pistol issues with roughly 90 degree hits not detonating, and less that 28 degrees deflecting off and not detonating, both until late 1943, but the slight angle "bounce" for the duration (the pistol detonator does not strike the ship). Then there is the magnetic detonator, that should have several various failures, such as detonating as soon as it arms, all the way through never detonating at all, and those percentages fluctuate throughout the war. There will always be magnetic pistol failures. This is also affected by wave height, such that the rougher the weather, the more duds from premature detonations. There really should be more failures though, going by what's in the file now, but we'll do some experimenting and see what's up...

I only have one of the two movie intros. The first one works fine.

I think s7rikeback meant to name the "logo.wmv" with the "intro.wmv" file. If those files play outside of the game just fine, then when you installed the game, had you installed the DirectX v9.0c ~and~ the codecs? Refer to the "Install Notes For the Various Versions of SH4 in Windows.pdf" in the Support folder of FotRSU mod/game for information, specifically on "Page 5" for the dialog box example from when installing the game. If you did not do that, you would probably be better re-doing your install, since recent Windows updates make it next to impossible to do this from the User's account, for whatever reason. The install process apparently has proper authority to muck up your computer, while you do not... If you did do that while installing initially, then we'll have to wait on s7rikeback to come back up for air from his modding flurry, which is in-process as we speak. I really do not want to interrupt his inspired tweakings...
