Default Help wirh 2nd Mission

I can't seem to finish this one
I have kept to within 3 miles of the sub, hitting it with active sonar for about 4 hrs.
I must be doing something wrong.
Any advice?

You must get closer, practically right on top of him!

What I've found to pass that mission is you MUST as soon as you hear the alarm about General Quarters, you should immediately turn towards the sub and go to flank to get within 3 miles of it. Dont wait for a accurate solution.

Now I've stayed on top of that sub for a long time now. How long does it take before it surfaces?

Looking in my Players' Log it took 1 hour 46 minutes to complete the entire mission.

Been playing for 2 hours now...

Right on top of him. I even went to play with show truth after a bit due to rubbish ATT on active sonar.

Still hasn't surfaced

Also mission 1, could some of the harbour traffic be removed.

Although I have a 3.2 Ghz P4 and 512MB RAM and an ATI X300 card that mission was really quite choppy.

Apart from that good.

I went in real close to him in the mission. I had my active sonar pinging with the shortest range scale (= shortest ping interval), on him with auto track activated. I never let the range get greater than 1500 yards, and had the helo up, and my torps ready to fire on a snapshot just in case Bill had included any "surprises" in his mission

The wieird thing for me when I played this in 1.03 was that "surfacing" was completed when he poked that "mast" up that's part of the 3D model. In 1.01, he surfaced completely.

Ok, I don't know what Im doing wrong!!!
I've been chasing that sub since about 10 minutes after start, I've been <1000 yards for hours. My mission clock is at 23:00, and I think it starts at 17:00. That seems like a long time. I'm currently 368 yards behind him and have been for the last hour.
I've been following with active sonar, watching him on HF sonar, using Dicass, everything.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks, Swims

If you are using stock DW and are directly behind him pinging, he won't hear your pings and depending on the sub he won't hear you on passive sonar either.

I think they have all suffocated and died because you held them down too long. They are heroes; they died doing their duty to the motherland! O>

Or they tried to surrender and the commissar shot them all. In that case they are traitors...

OK guys, this is getting old.
I started my track at 1500 yards at 17:25 using active sonar.
I stayed within 1k yards for another 2hours 20minutes.
I did circles around him.
I came head on at him.
I pinged him from all angles.
Still never surfaced.
what the hell? I want to do the campaign, please help.
Thanks,
Swims
