TWoS contains much better, extended and revised version of this mod with scripted war news by date, plus I remember I fixed back then several CTD issues involved around news scripting ...

So I noticed in some of the radio.cfg files that there are frequencies for BBC news by year. I tune those freq and there is nothing there (ie 100 is supposed to be BBC 1939?)

Do the new reports just come up when listening to HDR on the default freq at channel 20?

Music and news are broadcasted on same frequency precised in radio.ini file but specific news audio files are further controlled in the appropriate events.ini file.

Is that what you've asked about?

I think so. I have been using the radio for quite a bit (career is now in Dec 1939) and have yet to hear a news broadcast. Maybe I just have hit a trigger yet or was in base when the event happened for the news to be played.

Edit. Here is the file I found radio.cfg

In the "Silent Hunter 5\data\Sound\Radio\Grossdeutscher Rundfunk\Events\events.ini" file you can read/print all the time dates for the different news. So, for example first news on Grossdeutscher Rundfunk starts at 03.09.1939 22.00 oclock GMT time. Time compression should then be "1".

Anyway, all radio news are scripted in "Silent Hunter 5\data\Sound\Radio\Grossdeutscher Rundfunk\Events\events.ini" file.

I speak german, i could help you/inform you when i recognize wrong time-news.

I used GR-Radio TwoS 1.06 when i had the news bug. Like i said, iam using now GR-Radio version TWoS 2.04 and the first news started at the right time. :Kaleun_Salute:

THX Vecko again for all! :subsim:

Hi Faamecanic,
to get the BBC frequencies to work you will have to download "BBC Radio Mod Extended" and install with JSGME. you can find more information on this mod at http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=228559

Ahh Thanks Les!

Little question: Someone could tell me what is the german font used in TWoS logo? I tried with the FRANKFUR font, but it looks lightly different.

I want to make my new personal signature for TWoS....

Many thanks in advance!

Need help here. I think I now have a bugged Enigma message.

Date message received is Nov 15 1939..message as follows

BDU 0259/3/10/1939 18_KZIK AAGE DWBC MYIJ KLNH LVNA TFDK JNET OOFQ IHIE RBXK JYDR UXRQCOIS IKUA KZIK AAGE

I found it odd I got the message on 15 Nov (this time it was in my patrol log for a different uboat? Vs mubrafio messages) but the code at the start says 3/10/1939 (Oct 3 1939???). I set up my machine for 3 October...and got garbage. Checked all settings again and still got garbage.

So I started setup for 15 Nov...but got a garbage cipher Key (Teil B = Triton) as I am off the west coast of UK in the AM grid.

Any enigma experts here help an old Kaelun out? :k_confused:


Edit: Just got another enigma message and it was dated 5 October 1939 (BDU 0259/5/10/1939 ) Yet my actual date the message received is 17 Nov 1939. I also just got a Objective complete to patrol AM0286, and my next patrol just shows as 1.....

I think Im having issues :( This is after a save and restart of game.

Dont give a **** when you got the message, always respect the date in the message :salute:

You can use the addon mods by Vecko, totally compatible with TWoS.

Also I use the Unscratched Optics mod (a cosmetic change) and a lot of radios and gramophone tracks.

It is not recommended to add many "others" mods to TWoS. The combination is autosufficient and you don't need to add nothing for a great gameplay and candy eye. The Rusted Glory mod (rusty skin) is full compatible, with a darkness interior. The Nozaurio's skins are also compatible.

For real navigation TWoS contains an scripted system (recommended). Also you can use the manual real nav and the instruments are accurate, "as real as gets".

Enjoy and best regards!

Thank you Herr Kaleun :Kaleun_Salute:

Hey Faamecanic, :salute:
Did you went trough the FAQ section and watched some of numerous YT SH5 Enigma tutorials? :hmm2:

palmic 07-12-17 06:30 AM

Vecko, you should remove "new" label from last version, it becomes irelevant for us who already have 2.0.4 for month ;)

Yes I have read the FAQ and watched tutorials. I have sucesssfully decoded two enigma messages before this one. I even step thru one of the YT tutorial videos as I decode to make sure I don't miss anything.

I found it odd that the date in the message reads October 3 1939, yet received it November 15th 1939. The other two messages I successfully decoded were recived on the same date as the date in the message used to decode. (I.e. Message received 03 Sept 1939 and date in message said 03/09/1939)

I set up the enigma for the October 3 date as instructed and got garbage. So I tried Nov 15 and got a garbage cipher code.

I will try again tonight...maybe I set a wheel wrong.

Last enigma wheels starting position before writing was GATT.
On image you can see "plugs settings" based at 1939-10-03.

but it looks like you wrote part of the message wrong here it seams "IHIE" was wrong...

If you dont understand this, RTFM :salute:
