Kim Ronhof's Report Generator is clunky with SH4 1.5.
Some times, i can get it to run. Other times, even after i fiddle with it, no joy.
i wish i had a tool set to replace it for 1.5, but i do not.

in any case, back to the issue....the report generator is not a log that one would use during mission play, only a post-mission recap or debrief, if you will.

i am unaware of utility that we can use, during play, to log activities that are not already logged in the Message Log or Kill Log.

Yeah, there is... it's old school.. an oldie but still a goodie...

It's called a notebook, note pad... & it still works great.

Just wanted to say thanks for this amazing mod, with FOTRS, I've gone through a career from 42 all the way to the end of the war, at a tonnage of 960,000 I've had some exceptional failures, but each time was a learning experience, between sneaking into Truk and taking out a carrier from under the Japanese's noses, avoiding escorts and snagging a cruiser, or even bagging the Yamato. (Took all of my torpedoes tho )

Not to go on a tangent, but my favorite part of the game was that I didn't feel like the only US combatant, unlike in vanilla where it's you against the IJN, rather there's at times a plethora of Allied support, won't ever forget hitting a large convoy right outside of Rabual, diving to avoid the escorts, only to hear explosions on the surface; P40's and Catalinas! Laden with bombs they ruthlessly sent many a ship to the bottom, and distracted the escorts long enough I was able to get back to periscope depth and and send the remaining escorts to the bottom

Even after the convoy had been sunk, I spent the entire day searching and rescuing the downed airmen who were all over the area, and drifting in high seas, not gonna lie, I had a kind of attachment to my allies who most likely saved my bacon.

That experience alone is something I don't think I could ever experience in vanilla. Thank you.

Glad you like it ijustwantrisingsun! That is what we are after, is that "not alone in the world" feeling, except of course, at the beginning until mid '42 anyway... because, technically, the subs were the only ones out there at first... Now, if there was only a way for the game to "reward" you for rescuing the flyboys you pickup in those situations. I'll have to "test" them further, because you might get the 150 renown points for each "survivor" picked-up... "Lifeguard" missions are a different story, and their Objective renown do count for your "score". It is still fun, even if they don't count for anything, and helps contribute to that feeling of participation. I do the same whenever possible, even if I have to wait around for nightfall.
