Svedan, dont delete your original last cw save. I will try to find more elegant solution with few changes in campaign.cfg file, if possible at all...

Ok big thx for You help too! Now I know what I did wrong. Now Im in Mare Nostrum - Breakthrough Gibraltar and with experience of crew and upgrade points and history. Looks like everything is ok! :up:

Short tutorial:

1. Create a save file in the bunker the next chapter using "silentotto" cheat (before You will talk with commander). Fore example the chapter for Mare Nostrum starts in 1.03.41. You can check it here: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/show...97&postcount=2

2. Go to last Your save in the previous chapter. You must be on the patrol when the last day of previous chapter incoming. At the first day of the next chapter go to Your port (1.03.41). Take option "End the patrol" and save a game in dry dock in this day.

3. Exit a game. Back to the new save with "silentotto" the new chapter C:\Users\name of user\Documents\SH5\data\cfg\SaveGames\xxxxxxx and take all files from this folder (do a copy):

Campaign.cfg
CampaignMission.mis
CampaignProgress.cfg

4. Put this 3 files to Your save of Your current Campaign (so this save when You did in dry dock after the patrol). Overwrite it.

5. Load Your save from current campaign. Now You have Your renewal points and promotions point of crew and history of patrols from Your previous chapter! Upgrade Your systems and torpedos, talk with Commander and You can go to next patron from the new chapter!


Now You can swim again!

If it really works then it should be added to the beginning of the thread.

Svedan , can you send me your original Campaign.cfg file from your last CW save?

I'm afraid that replacing only mentioned files wont work ether...:hmmm: Flotillas settings are messed up. For example, home base in YoYo's Mare Nostrum campaign is Lorien because he is still in the same flotilla like in HT campaign. It shouldn't be like that...

Yes right. I started it in Lorien (23.03.41) now but with "silentotto" only in Kiel :hmmm:, but the rest looks ok for me.

"Transfer from 2nd flotilla Kiel 15-03-1941 with new boat.
Bases - La Spezia (15-03-1941 to 31-05-1941) Salamis/Piraeus (01-06-1941 to 01-12-1941)".

Yes, and this is not good because you will have to pass trough Gibraltar every time in order to end your patrol...Tomorrow we can try to make some manual changes in CareerTrack.upc file, maybe that will help...

In Svedan's case (CW to HT shift) all should be fine because both campaigns features same 2nd flotilla...

Little Question:

Is this Mod "Cerberus62 Historical Ship Equipment 1.4" in TWoS still integrated? or when not compatible to juse with JGSME?

Here is my Coastal Waters save from 31/5-1940. Time is 23:00, just before the Coastal Waters campaign ends. The uboat is at sea just outside the port Wilhelmshaven

Thanks...

I think I have complete solution for manual campaign change for people with broken Campaign.cfg update ability (which are basically all SH5 versions with unmodified executable)

Yoyo, please try this...
Open your CareerTrack.upc (NOT the one found in UPCInitial folder) and edit flotilla lines marked in red to look like this...You can copy/paste them from code down below.

Code:

[CareerTrack 1]
ID=IDCareerTrack1

[CareerTrack 1.CareerStatusHeader]
ID=ID
UserPlayerNameDisplayable=Cpt.Kurtz
CareerOptionsDate=1939-08-31 13:00:00

[CareerTrack 1.CareerStatusLast]
ID=ID
Reason=CSS_LastStatus
NameDisplayable=NULL
CurrentDate=1941-03-29 06:56:25
UniqueID=3957285610582654
Title=NULL
Text=NULL
EntryStatus=0
PlayerRankAchieved=Captain-Rank-10
PlayerCurrentLastPromotionDateTime=1939-08-31 13:00:00
CurrentFlotilla=23rdFlotilla
CurrentFlotillaBase=F8LaSpezia
CurrentSDepartureDescription=1.17836e+006,5.29216e+006,122.289
CurrentUPCFlotillaUserPlayerUnitType=F8VIIB ; Or F8VIIC if you have received this submarine
CurrentDifficulty=Realistic
PlayerCurrentRenown=2320.000000

PlayerMerchantsTonnageSunk=101889.000000
PlayerShipsSunk=0.000000
PlayerCurrentMedals=NULL,MT_UboatIronCross2ndClass,MT_UboatIronCross1stClass,MT_UboatIronCross1stClass
CrewMembersCurrentMedalsRepository=NULL
CrewMembersCurrentPromotionsRepository=1
PlayerCurrentObjectiveCode=South-Indian-Ocean
PlayerDefaultObjectives=ID1
PlayerCurrentObjectives=ID1
PatrolStartDateTime=1941-03-29 06:56:25

EDIT
You should be able to do this even with your last patrol save...
EDIT2
Note that these are flotilla settings only for Mare Nostrum campaign, other campaigns use different flotillas.

Thx Vecko!!!
I'll chack it but now I cant pass through Gibraltar. :hmmm:
Near Gibraltar I reach very poor FPS and finally CTD. 4 times and the same result.

Disable patch for increased rendering distance, go south as much as possible , ease your TC, save and restart the game just before Gibraltar. That should help...

So disable "The Wolves of Steel 1.04 - Patch 10" only for this operation? :salute:

Hello VDR; Been some time since I've been on here, but I reinstalled SH5 due to playing World of Warships, lol.

I am running into a problem trying to download the mod. Its been a consistent problem. I get this message just after clicking download and etc.

No mate :), TDW Generic patcher, you will find patch for increased rendering distance there...
I've tried to pass the Gibraltar and yes FPS is very poor (there's million air and sea units over there) but no CTD. 2 times actually...and 2 deaths... :D Uswed max 16 TC, cant do it more because my FPS was single digit...
