Default Jimimadrid SubManagement

Today I present the new graphic backgrounds for the SubManagement.

SH4 normally uses a graphical background for all SubCompartments.
Now you can experience the differences visually.

! Now available for 1920x1080 & 1600x900 & 2560x1440 resolution. Can be activated with the MenuMerger.












The changes also affect the German side:









Since SH4 only provides one background graphic, you have to change a few things in the menu_1024_768.ini.
that's why I created an application to make the changes with just one click.

This application is the SH_MenuMerger.




With the SubManagement Backgrounds entry the Backgrounds will be visible in the Game. As the changes are in the menu_1024_768.ini, you have to close SH4, do the changes and start SH4 again.

!No need to be in port or start a new game!

With the SH_Menumerger the changes can also easily be undone.

(Download SH_Menumerger and Handbook for Modders -> https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/dow...o=file&id=6273)








Additional Addons provided with the SH_Menumerger:

Renown Nixie tube -> This changes the renown counters to a nixie tube stylish




New Rank Icons




New Abilities Icons




New Crew Icons - The new Crew Icons, now also available for the german sailors




Bigger Face Icons -> Get bigger Face Icons as in the vanilla





Additional Version (included):

There is also an more detailed Version of the Damage and Torpedo Background.









Since the different submarines show changes among themselves,
it is necessary to switch the corresponding data with the following application i created herefore.

The Uboat_Selector


V1.0 has a wrong pointer to the images. Replaced by V1.01 in the Mod
(V1.02 as standalone download -> https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/dow...o=file&id=6274




Here you can select the desired submarine and append the changes. The 'No Specific Class' switch back to the version for all boats.
Since FotRS and TM have differences, it is also necessary to select the appropriate mod before applying the changes.


You get also nice information about the different Uboat Classes.



BOTH APPILCATIONS ARE INCLUDED IN THE SubManagement MOD.

Installing the SubManagement Mod via JSGME, both Applications will be in the SH4 Folder available.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download -> https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/dow...o=file&id=6272
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

!DON'T FORGET TO ENABLE THE SubManagement WITH THE SH_MENUMERGER AFTER INSTALLING WITH JSGME!




PS: As there where so many different Uboats, i have not done too much tests to see if all works correct. If you find some failures please inform me.



Enjoy it

I added them to the jimimadrid Submanagement Download, so that all version are available.


You can activate the different versions through the MenuMerger.







I wish all of you Merry Christmas and nice days with your families.

It shows v1.0.0.0 because i have not upped the number when compiling.


Have you changed some? Name of the Mod? The directory?


The path must be: MODS\Jimimadrid SubManagement\Data\_Uboat-Class


In the next version i will put some intelligence to search the path.

My The path
D:\Sh4\Sh4_FOTRS18\MODS\Jimimadrid SubManagement\Data\_Uboat-Class
it seems that Window doesn't like it I don't know why the security seems suspicious..
Microsoft Defender SmartScreen prevented an unrecognized application from starting. Running this application may put your computer at risk.
even if i force it it doesn't work..??

I've build the intelligence.

You can download it at the separate Uboat_Selector link.




Very strange that the MenuMerger worksand the ubost_selector not. Both Applikations are VB10 Programs.

Kal_Maximus,

the Uboat_Selector should be in the same directory as the SH4.exe.

Did the UBoat_Selector start?
When starting it checks where it is and show a notice to put in the right directory.
