This sounds exciting. A new theater of operations of the much less publicized soviet sub war. Looking forward to trying this out.

Thanks.

The first: LINKS FOR MOD AND (SP):
Both references by turns.
Then - all the rest.

CaptJodan!

You have told: "My russian is poor however".
I very well understand you. Because my English is very-very poor however. SOM Group need the translator. At least for the basic part of the project.
May be - here there are people which can make it? If it is interesting, of course.

Am I doing something wrong? I have SH4 v1.5. I downloaded both the mod and the fix and installed both with JSGME. Started the game and saw the new screen. Looks good, very nice... but then everything is in Russian

By guess, I start a career. Orders come in Russian except for the words "Porpise" and "Pearl Harbor". Started first patrol... to Luzon??

When I went to the navigation map it looked very different, but I could see that I was in Pearl Harbor... then it crashed. Tried it again and got the same thing.

Not using with any other mods. Hope someone can help. Very excited to be on the Soviet side

OK. Try to make it:




The game beginning:

When the player chooses year of start of career. It is necessary to go to the list end. There above - America. Below - Baltic.

GREAT mod, but there's one little problem:


now i wouldn't mind if the menu were in russian (i can read cyrillic so i could guess the meaning of most words) but with this kind of gibberish it's unplayable...
I think that my version of SH4 (EU version) displays the characters differently than the russion version..

Very interesting, a very neglected part of the war and the Finnish defense on all fronts was a marvel of determination and freedom. Glad to see this era getting attention, hopefully once a translated version or at least a translated GUI is available we can play this. Thank you very much for this fine effort.

This looks like a great mod! The Russian subs are wonderful, and the Russian voices are cool, although there are some glitches.

I've managed to get this mod working with v1.4, fiddling with the game files.

The menu texts are in Russian. To change them back to english, simply go to your original Sh4 folder, and copy the file "menu.txt" to the Baltic mod. It goes into the data\menu folder. This will change the menus back to english, but the campaign selection and mission briefings will still be in russian.

If the game crashes while zooming on the navigation map, try this: go to data\campaigns\CampaignRU and open the file "GW_LOC.mis" with your notepad. Use the replace function to replace every instance "Agency_12.dds" to "FPCond18.dds". Click "replace all" button. This should fix the navigation map crash.

If you can run single missions with a russian sub, but not the campaign, there is a problem probably in the campaigns or upcdata folders.

Great work on this mod!

Thank you, that was what I needed. Sailing in the Baltic Sea
New subs look very nice! Thank you Dagon and everyone else.

Still crashing, though. If I zoom out on the map, the game will crash. If I zoom in, the game is ok. If I zoom out will it always crash.

Edit: Thank you Zel, I will try the changes you recommend.

Poul, could you please PM me the contents of your Data\Menu\Fonts folder? Or make them publically available? I expect this will solve my problem!
