Well, there's good news again .

Kaleun contacted Lurker through another forum, and he gave permission to use his original work in WDAD.

Thanks to both of you .

I also got a copy of One of our submarines from the mail this morning (and a DRM-free SH3 copy), so I have some reading to do now .

While I'm right now in the middle of enjoying One of our Submarines, I've found this for possible purchase:


Submarine Torbay

Since Torbay spent a great part of her career in the Mediterranean, I thought it could be an interesting read. Has anybody here read it?

I've just found out that in www.uboat.net there are patrol reports of UK submarines as well (sadly, the only ones I've found online), so I'm making a few additions to the patrol areas and target selection, as well as some more convoy routes.

I've also found, after adding a number of messages to messages.txt and deleting most of the Pacific ones, that now it doesn't work properly. Probably a format problem. Has anybody more info about this file?.

Then I have a question for keltos01. You did a version of the T-Class with the three rear firing tubes (the Dutch Zwaardvisch), but I think it is not compatible with the 10-forward tubes version. Is it possible to have it reworked so they can both be eligible in the campaign?.

what?! where more precisely? I'm going blind here...

Messages.txt I've always found easiest to work with in a spreadsheet, like Excel. Import textfile and once finished, just export as tab-formatted text.

If you want me to look at your messages.txt, please upload somewhere.


Don't know that specific book, but thanks for the heads-up

Try here: http://www.uboat.net/allies/warships...type=Submarine

There are snippets, not close to all of them, but something at least. Some T-Class boats also have a nice Googlemap thing with some of their positions during patrols. Check HMS Torbay, here is where I found the reference to that book.

This is what I did, but then they don't show up ingame. I'll try to upload the file later and send you a PM with the link, thanks for the offer .

I'd have to remap ids and all, it's basically two versions of the same sub.

I'll think about it, but you already have the U and T ...

and the 11th tube causes CTD when using the TBT, never could fathom why because it works in the scope view.

OK, keltos. Thanks for the explanation.

Don't worry about it, it is probably a problem with the game rather than the submarine. I'll leave as it is, with the 10-forward tubes version.

Original documents photographed/scanned and uploaded.

Guess I'll still have to visit the National Archives then...


I can't see any errors in your messages.txt??

Perhaps SH4 simply dislike the use of "MEDFLEET"??

No idea. I don't understand why it won't work. This is something that worries me a lot, because the state of the war in North Africa dictated where did the convoys go to, and this is a very important info in our context.

Just played my first war patrol from Malta-june 1940 with a U-class, sank a frieghter & missed two tankers

Played great, no bugs to report thus far.

Only thing i noticed was that for June in the Med. off tripoli thier was heavy fog for several days stright. Is this normal & is thier even a way to fix this? If not i understand.

Great work nonetheless

i've been waiting for this! It would be better if someone can create the RN sub operation in Atlantic and North sea, by the way, is it OM compatible?

I'm sorry, I just don't have an answer on this, as I have no idea on how is the weather handled. Perhaps someone with the right knowledge can put his wisdom on the table.

It has not been tested on OM. Requirements for this campaign are SH4 patched to v1.5 and WDAD by lurker_hlb3

I'll have to test this a bit more. I copied the patch over the 1.00 version of WDAD because it was a very minor update, and then over this I worked on the campaign.

The order of enabling should be WDAD, then WDAD patch and lastly this campaign.

Thank you all for your comments. They are invaluable.
