View Full Version : "War Ended!" - HUH?!!!

So I was on the patrol, regular day, nothing suprising just heavy fog and horrible rain. My IXC tumbles back and forth on the waves, my crew is complaining morale is going down. I haven't riched my destination yet and I was tired. So I decided - save and finish it later. So I did... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif
Some time later I came back and decided to stretch my ocean legs. I go to Career mode screen choose my profile and look for the last save I had.


The last save says "War ended". I looked at the date and it was...... "June 12, 1943" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif
I guess history changes in SH3! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

Can see if this works:

You need to go into your save files (in your "My Documents" folder, eg: "My Documents\SH3\data\cfg\Careers\<yourcareername>\) and look for the two files in your career called: "Careers.cfg" and "careers_0.cfg" .Open those files with notepad (or anyother document viewing program) then find the lines that read:


...find these lines in both .cfg file and change them so they read:

Certain it was 1943? D-Day was 6-6-44. Maybe you were in the wrong port at the wrong time and got snapped up? -

Nah, that would be too simple. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

That brings up a question I had always wanted to ask: WHEN does the war end for SH3 when in career mode??

My first career started in 1939 was ended when the game declared "war ended" in 1940. Is that a cue to just move onto the 1940 career or is that a bug?

it's a bug. They say in the manual that no matter which year you start "war ends in May 1945" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Those two lines both say "false" in both files. So I guess that is not the problem.
