We know the final German surrender was signed on 7 May 1945 and presumably, most hostilities died down a little earlier. SH3 though, doesn't seem to know when to end the war.

I returned to Base at Bergen and was informed that the war had ended, on January 16th. Nonsense, I said and reloaded my last in-mission save. SH3 then let me carry on on my path of destruction until April 26th but on return to base, my war was again ended, this time back-dated to April 1st and my kills between April 1st and 26th, were discarded. I tried the load savegame trick but this time SH3 was adament, April 1st was not negotiable.

OK, I accept, so time to review my career.... nope, SH3 wouldn't let me, all such buttons are dead. I had to go back to my 2nd last "in base after mission" save to get access.

Anyone else finding the end of the war a little confusing?

Aside from all that it was a most enjoyable IIA/VIIB career, although ending up with a not very impressive 845k tons. I started my second career late, in 1941, but with all those IXB torpedoes, it has to be better. How many have million ton careers already?

On my 35 patrol(first with IXB) and have 1,001,000 tons. 81,000 was my best patrol to date. Have not broke the 100K mark as of yet.

Have done six patrols. 400,000 tonnes in a VII.

I'm sure the 'EndOfWar' variable can be found in one of the cfg files.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
