Default Torpedo Salvo Knob Blank

Hello fellow captains and crew!

Quick question: Was recently running a single mission and noticed that when looking through the Attack Periscope the Torpedo Salvo Knob appears to be blank and does not turn. However, when viewing the Attack Map the numbers seem to appear properly and the knob functions. Is this intended? Does the scope need to be upgraded at some point to properly use Salvo Control from the Attack Scope?

Currently installed mods:

GWX 3.0
ARB 1920x1080 - This is the mod which allows me to view the Salvo Knob
SH3 Commander

Based on the ARB 1920x1080 screenshots, it looks like this might be intended?

First and third image shows what I am currently experiencing.

Any insight or support would be very appreciated. I have checked the forums for this topic, however 'Torpedo Salvo Knob' was not returning many results.

Thanks and my apologies in advance!

With the ARB Mod comes a "SH3 Commander" folder which contains the salvo.tga for each boat.
Just copy the "U-boat" folder from ARB into your SH3 Commander folder.

Then the salvo numbers will appear on the periscope TDC. But on the attack map they will be double!

I didn't know this about the ARB GUI.

This is good. We learned something new today and we can shoot twice as many torpedoes.

Okay. Maybe not the second part. Thank you Maddin.

Thank you so much! I'm just glad to hear that I don't have to do another full reinstall. Yet...

Thanks again, and good hunting!

And now for the bad news. When firing a Salvo the torpedoes didn't all fire together of fire at once. In order to avoid accidental premature detonations and wake interference knocking the fish off course, salvos always fired each torpedo about eight seconds apart.

I made sure the Uboat folder was applied in my actual SH3 commander folder. Now I get numbers, but some boats have the wrong numbers while others are correct. Thoughts?
