So I have 2 of 4 fore torpedo tubes ready, and I have 2 more fore torps available, but the last 2 do not load (I have auto loading on, and men in forward torp room).
Tube # 1 has a yellow background...
Are you "Rigged for silent running" they won't load" - "secure from silent running" and they will begin loading again... don't know what else it could be.. unless you have no crew in the torp room!
Well they started loading about 10 min game time after I've posted.
I noticed the yellow background is just the tube I selected. Not sure about the delay as I had men avaialble w/out silent running.
Sometimes my crew gets stuck like that, without being on silent running. A similar glitch is when I surface with a rested crew and no damage, I call out a speed on the klaxon but I get a "can't comply" message... and I'm just sitting dead in the water. I've been able to fix it by going to battle stations briefly, then securing from battle stations. It seems to give the crew a little jump-start when they get stuck on some action.
It doesn't work with some other things though, like getting the damage control to repair damaged deck guns.
Think I figured out why this happens.
If you are silent running and are out of torps and surface to go refit your boat, the silent running mode gets stuck on the the crewmen. you have to go back to periscope depth, and secure from silent running, then re-surface to refit. Worked for me
agh yes another fault ive come across is some times in game with external view , it like to run off in its own direction , not bein able to stop it . can be annoying in battle.
