Default EAST WIND RAIN

Was re-reading AT DAWN WE SLEPT this week, got into the "what ifs" about a US sub being in position to intercept Nagumo's task force and sink a few carriers. Opened the mission editor and was surprised to find there actually IS a PearlHarborAttack.mis in the Campaigns folder!

Knowing the route, I set off from Manila and arrived in the Bungo Suido on the 18th, and waited. And waited. Christmas day came and went, no task force. I examined the route in the mission editor, it's accurate for the track, off on the dates - task force arrives north of Honolulu on the 12th instead of the 7th, but does enter the Bungo Straits on the 25th, last waypoint being well inside so I SHOULD be able to intercept in the narrows, what's amiss?

Turns out the problem is in the Campaign.cfg file;

FileName=data/Campaigns/Campaign/PearlHarborAttack.mis
StartDate=19380101
EndDate=19411215

So they have this thing doing the actual attack on the 12th, then magically disappearing on the 15th, 10 days before it arrives at the final waypoint. Changed the end date to December 30, gotta restart a career now and see what happens.
