Default Never noticed this before in CAoD

Made an attack on a convoy, forced under and chased, escorts leave. I come to periscope depth and raise scope,watch the escorts, go to charts, hit ALT+P, and I can see the asdic cone from the escorts as they return to the convoy. All those careers over the years and the game still had a surprise for me.

Yeah, AOD handles situational awareness very well. Of course some of the items didn't exist in real life but they're needed to get real life results in a computer game and that is the key.
Many times, inputting "realistic" data into a game causes more problems than it solves.

Sorry to hijack this thread with my issue, but here it goes.
I was able to make run Command: Aces of the Deep on my Win10 machine by just modifying the compatibility settings in the executable. I love it.
However, I am aware of some bugs that this version comes with. Most notably the engine sound cutting in and out and such. It is very distracting.
Is there a known patch that resolves these type of issues with this version of the game?

Thank for the help in advance.

Not that I have ever heard of. The sound has always been an issue. I just played it so much over the years, I ignore it. Changing speed will bring it back.

I don't know if a patch would be possible, or I would think it would have been done by now.

Thanks Rconch. That's what I was afraid of. I just really like the sharper graphics, my eyes are not that great anymore haha.

The amount of dud torpedoes in the beginning of your career is frustrating
On my 3rd patrol, out of the 6, I had 5 duds.
This is late 1939.

I know how that feels-I start in "The Happy Time" and avoid the worst of the duds.
