Hi everybody, I'm new to this stunning sub sim....

I've played few patrols in career mode and I have some questions.

- I'm not able to use the observation periscope...I can get it up/down but I cannot use that.
What's the keyboard command to gain access to it...F3 is dedicated to attack periscope !!!!! any command for observation one ?????

- I'm not able to assign some medals type to crew...they are stiky !!!!!!
I'm able to properly assign some other king of awards.

- MOST IMPORTANT !!!!!!
ANY WAY TO EDIT THE KEYBOARD COMMAND FOR SHIII ?????
WHAT IS THE FILE I HAVE TO EDIT TO MODIFY DEFAUL KEYBOARD COMMANDS ?????

THANKS FOA ANY SUGGESTION.

howdie,
'o' key is for the observation periscope.

look in your SilentHunterIII\documentation folder. SH3_QRC_PG2.jpg is the keyboard reference.

can't answer other ?'s, but what do you mean the medals are sticky?

Welcome aboard JastaV,
I seem to remember a thread posted several months back about altering keyboard commands. Use the find key above to search through the forum. If no luck, just be patient, someone here will know something

I read SHIII manual in detail but got not evidence of that command....of course it' s reported in keyboard reference chart.....

My trouble with medals assignement: I can select medal, I can evidence crew member profile, but I cannot drag the medal !!!!!

Thanks for your support.

Metals €" Select the metal and the crew members able to receive them should be high lighted. Select which crew member you want to give the metal to and he should appear in the lower right box of the screen. Now you can drag the metal over to his position there.

I just picked up the game myself and have the same problem with the medals (you can select the medal to highlight all the people eligible to receive it and you can select one of the eligible people but you can't drag the medal over to them).

I read that you can earn a high ranking medal and not be able to assign it to anyone until you have earned the lower ranking medal in the same category (like 1st cross, 2nd cross etc.). I think that was in the medals section of these forums on line manual in the sticky for newcomers at the top of the forum).

I figure that must be what is happening.

I tried editing key commands.....

Unfortunately it seems like SHIII does not support any other but German/English keyboard....So you you are using any other language keyboard you are in troubles....

I've got the same problem with the dragging of the medals, particularly the clasps. You've just gotta find a 'sweet spot' to click on the medal to drag it. Just takes a bit of practise.

I managed trouble exiting career mode to main SHIII menu, then re-entering the career....At that time all medals are easely assegnable !!!!!

I switched to SH3 Commander ver 2.6, so no more troubles to manage crews and assigning medals....

I also tried a bunch of Third party add-ons and mods.....

All with the best results
