Which version of IUB are you using 1 or 102? From trying out SH3 commander with IUB102 I found it to be incompatible. I looked on the forum and read that there were some bugs with it (the latest version of SH3 Commander)so it's possible that you may have encountered a glitch.

Regards,

Alright then..I haven't read anything new saying that SH3 Commander (newest version) 2.43 I think it is, has been fixed so if you're running the latest version of SH3 Commander I suggest try running the game without it and see what happens. Duds are duds so if you have the same results without SH3 Commander then re-install it. I'm waiting for them to improve or fix it before I use it again as I liked what that program did myself.

Have you tried with impact pistols instead. Magnetic pistols tends to be unreliable in the early stages of the war. Ive managed to do succesful keel shots at numerous ships in a patrol and then suddenly I do it at a C3: the torp just passes beneath the keel at 12.3m with nothing happening. Next I go with a magnetic a couple of meters higher up and it bounces of. Lastly i would have used the impact but my stern tubes was empty by then...
I'm using RUB 1.45 so the C3 has deeper draugth.

after the first 4 went off i switched to impact and set to 3m depth shot, im guessing it was eather a bug like Blue_Ninja63 said or it was real bad luck as i have not had a dud torp in the last 4 patrols

At most, two were duds. A premature detonation by definition is not a dud. A torpedo that runs out is one that was fired from too great a distance, poor judgement, not a dud. The shortest range of any German torpedo is 3000 meters.
