Default Weapon malfunction and behavior (RA)

Hi all. I've moved to play DW with RA mod (1.47) for months, and i like the feature. I want to ask
1. Does the weapon malfunction affect on both player and ai, or just on player?
2. How do you know if the enemy (ai) has shot torpedoes (as a counterattack) besides from TIW notification which usually happen when the torpedo is on 3-3,5 nmi from my sub. If I know maybe i can evade earlier/not too late/not too early.
3. How far the min range a subroc can be shot without getting noticed?

1. Hmm i don't remember but you can always turn it off
Just open dangerouswaters.ini in notepad and change:
Quote:
[Cheats]
.QuickLaunch No
.QuickAircraftLaunch No
.QuickRepair No
.SubComms No
.ReplenishStations No
.SurfAutoEngageAir Yes
.AirAutoEngageAir Yes
.WeapMalfunction Yes -> No
.EngageDoctrine No
.AllowAAMTargeting No
.SalvoWarheadMethod Yes
.SpeedOrdersPersist No
.ShowTheDead Yes
In RA 1.48 weaponmalfunction will be "No" by default

2. You can use Narrowband:
- all torpedoes first frequency is 55Hz 65Hz or 75Hz (shkval type)
- sound is strong and first frequecny is visible from very far range
Also audible sound in BroadBand mode is characteristic

3. I don't know exactly but since RA 1.47 was limited around 30 nmi.


Btw new RA 1.48 should be released within 4-6 hours

@p7p8 Thanks for your answer
1.Sometimes this feature rather annoying, especially if the sub only has 4 tubes.
Does this mod modeling dangerous malfunction? For example a torpedo explodes inside the own sub (like a Kursk Submarine in real life)? I only ever experienced torpedo shut down uninteonally.

2. So launching a subroc silently is not possible now?
3. Glad to hear the good news, I'll check soon .

1. RA 1.48 has been relaeasd - now Weaponmalfunction is off by default

2. Launching SUBROC silently never was possible. Now it's possible if you do this from greater range than 30 nmi. In earlier versions you was informed about launching subroc or SSM from over 90 nmi!

update:

"underwater missile launch" message is from shortest range for Harpoons, medium range for Club/SUBROC and greater range for SLBM
