Been really busy of late so I have not had much chance to seriously sit down and play SH3. Started a new patrol with an old Kaleun last night, and I have noticed a slight problem with the recognition manual when playing with Grey Wolves ver 1.1a

How come all the merchant ships have had their designations replaced with "Contact"? And is there a fix for this? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Or am I simply missing something so obvious? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Thanks in advance! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I'm glad someone has replied....anyway, what I mean is that wehn I open up the recognition manual all ships have the name "Contact" instead of their correct designation such as Small Tanker, C2 Cargo etc. All ships have been renamed to "Contact" that includes everyship in the manual.

When I am in the Uzo and periscopes view and I select a target, for example a Small Tanker the notepad will say tanker straight away, but when I find the appropriate ship and mark the tick box in the manual, the name tanker in the notepad changes to "Contact".

I think it's the posh looking book from jonz, it's not the original stock version.

Can I revert to the original book but still keep the GW mod in place?

Thanks bunker will have a go - maybe the one I have is not compatible with GW

Nope, it doesn't work. I still get the ship name as "Contact" - maybe this was an intended change that works with the tonnage mod that seems to be used for GW.

All I need to do is change back to the original manual (stock game) - anyone have any ideas?

Goose, when you downloaded GW 1.1 there was a list of mods that were optional one of them was generic ship names [ or something like that] it causes all the ships to be labled as simply contact, I had that problem at first then i re installed and cliked that option off and they went back to normal that could be the problem.

yep that would be the problem..the english names file in the sea folder...go into part4 if it came in 6 parts find the sea folder and swap the english names file to the 1 in your sh3 sea folder...

Thanks for the tip - it has worked a treat!
