This is a first for me in this particular set of circumstances. I'm on second patrol, now baseed out of Surabaya, originally out of Cavite. I"m running TMO 2.0 withe the beta update.
My mission was to proceed to area "Pasture" and patrol there. A short ways out of Surabaya encountered a Horia Maru, with 2 escorts and sunk it and evaded the escorts no problem. I then ran across an unescorted Akita Maru, sunk same still no problem. Long dry spell later ran across 2 patrolling DD's sunk same still no problem. Next was a lone Haruna Maru, dispatched easily still no problem.
Here is the problem. I come across 2 more DD's and I decided to let them pass, but backtrack their course and see what I might find. While I still had the DD's on sonar contact I picked up another sonar contact following,not exactly their course but close to it. I turned out to be another Horia Maru. Whoopee, another big reward. What has ensued has been 2 days of total frustration.
I'm in a Sargo, 4 tubes fore 4 tubes aft. In front tubes 2 Mk 10's and 2 Mk 14's. I know bad choice with this being Jan 42. Line up was good, firing was good 2 10's hit exploded. 2 14's hit but were duds (quit laughing Wolfe), chased and was able to keep up(submerged) because of the hits till I could get another 10 loaded. I eventually did and sunk it. However no credit.
My first thought was I must have a corrupt save. Since I knew the time and the coordinates, no problem, go back and do it right with 4 10's this time. So far I've sunk this sucker "6" times
each time going back to an earlier save. The last time was the save after the Haruna Maru sinking. What gives. I'm at a loss. I never alt tab out or use the desktop button to leave the game. I always save and exit. This was deep water, South China Sea. Ideas please.
