Fifi, can you take a look in your menu_1024_768.ini file? Item G26 I107 should be the chronometer. Or anybody else with this issue, would you please take a look? Ideally, check in the nod itself, rather than in the active /data folder.

"I have a rookie crew-first mission.
The depth keeping abilities is very poor-anything less than STD speed at periscope depth causes the boat to sink. Wears out the batteries pretty quick.
As these guys improve(experience), does the depth keeping improve? I am hoping so.
Now silent running is useless as the boat sinks like a stone."

This is an example of the "Crash-dive Blues", which continues to trouble new players of NYGM.
If you interrupt a crash-dive *before* it has reached its standard dive-depth of 80 metres, the U-boat fails to level out correctly.
This is not a problem with stock SH3, nor with other super-mods (eg GWX), which have the standard diving model. (U-boat tends to rise slowly at slow speed.)
However, NYGM's diving model is biased towards a realistic slow sinking anyway, which is made much worse by an interrupted crash-dive.

There is an easy solution:
Return to the surface and perform another crash-dive. But on this occasion allow the U-boat to reach 80 metres and level-out, before you continue the dive to a deeper depth.
Of course, this is not possible if there is a destroyer overhead. So practise first in safe waters!

Fifi, was that entry from the mod or from the active Data folder? If it's from the mod, then VanJast's menu_1024_768.ini file is getting overwritten by another mod. If it's from the active Data folder, then perhaps something is corrupted in the download?

<Scratching head.>

Is there another G26 I107? And is there a missing G26 I106? Either will cause a problem.

The menu_1024_768.ini my copy of Van's mod is date stamped 7/19/2014. 4:29 PM. Does yours match?

Just as a cross-check, does the identical set of items appear in the menu_1024_768,ini in the active Data folder?

BigWalleye,

You were absolutely right about the chronometer in WYGM. I should never, never post when I am stressed out and up for 29 hours

Thanks for the kind words concerning my wife's surgery. It was life threating condition, but she came through the surgery fine and will be back home tomorrow.

God bless you both.

Glad you found the chronometer OK.

Hello people

I am playing with the megamod NYMN 2017 (The most realistic one) and when I attack a ship launching torpedoes they across the ship and no explote, everyone, I have deactivated the "not torpedos dud" and not
the hie patch "torpedo fix"

Do you know if it is a bug?

That’s why you just said « the most realistic one » !

Thanks for this, just got this game in a UBISOFT sale and loaded the mod as a recommendation from a STEAM user.

There is the tutorial NAVAL ARTILLERY and there are a number of ships to sink with the deck gun. The targets are actively moving and they will leave the immediate area making them hard if not impossible to find if one (especially rookie players) are finding it takes a lot of shots to sink a freighter. I spent quite a bit of time sailing around after sinking two ships not finding the others, but learned about search patterns and compressed time in the meanwhile.

The contacts on the map should help and track down the other ships, again thanks for this

-------------------------
EDIT WOW, it takes like 30 shots to sink a tramp steamer in the tutorial, I do not think the gunnery is completable with this mod running. I'm out of ammo and 2 ships left.

---------------------------------

Edit 2

Tramp steamer sinking for the artillery tutitorial goes faster in VANILLA, however I think am going to open fire only at SHORT RANGE in the mod to see if that sinks them quicker without running out of ammo. The tutorial is elementary but needed if one is not familiar with the game, sice thos dials and what they do can be confusing at first.

I believe the problem of the torpedo's is specific to MFM interm beta. Striebler posted this some time ago when asked about torpedo's passing through merchants and not exploding:

Quote:
The official release is found in mod IABLShipsforNYGM_New_Thomsen. All the ships in this mod have been tested very carefully, with torpedoes fired at every one of them successfully.

M13B is instead part of IABL's larger release of merchant ships, some of which, as you have discovered, are transparent to torpedoes. This very large release is accommodated with the NYGM mod overlay 'MFM_Interim_Beta_NYGM', which alters files .cfg, .eqp, .sns, .zon to match NYGM's requirements. However, the ships themselves have not been individually tested with NYGM.
