I installed the generic mod enabler, and sent two mods into the folder. Two problems. First, when I loaded the game, the mods didnt go through. Second, my last saved game was changed to "The War Ended!", and yet, its only '43. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Did you enable the mods after you put them in the mods folder?

How do I do that? I tried clicking on them but nothing happens.

There should be a icon in your main SHIII folder labeled JSGME. You click on it and a window will open showing all the mods by name in the mod folder. You select which mod you want enabled and click the arrow pointing to the right. The mod name should now move to the right side which means it is now enabled. Do this with all the mods you want to enable. Reverse the process to unenable them.

I checked the community manual site but it didn't have any installation instructions. Where is the arrow pointing to the right?

Here's what I did b4 any mod install... This is tedious but it's a safer 'backup'

When you 'extract' the mod to your "'game'\MODS" folder, go through each folder/file and backup these original items, as each mod backs up that file(modded or not) as the original.

In doing this you not only get a better idea of what the mod is doing, but also know which files to move around/restore..

It's nothing more than file swopping.. so before modding as said before ..backup the whole '\data' folder to be on the safe side..

nice but.... why would a mosquito (bomber/recon variant) be escorting a Lancaster? as they had no guns!.... heh maybe the Lancaster is escorting the mosquito http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif ... Us brits should really have put belly guns on our bombers! we were just begging the germans to invent the Dornier 217 night fighter with its vertical mounted quad cannons.
Some Lancasters had that pointless belly bubble on the underside, they just needed to mount a 20mm cannon on that, but i suppose they didnt want to allocate more wieght to the aircrafts defences in favour of being able to carry more bombs. They even striped the Lancasters of the armour plated backrest on the pliot seats because they were too 'HEAVY'.

The Mossie was used fairly often as a pathfinder aircraft for RAF bomber raids. It's job was to get over the target area just ahead of the main bomber stream and drop flares to mark the target area and so make the following Lancasters' bomb aimer's job easier.


(EDIT: BTW, you sure the Do-217 was used in the night fighter role you described? I thought they only used the Ju-88 and Bf-110 to carry the upward firing cannons? TBH I didn't know the Do-217 was ever used in that sort of role, but there again, I've never heard of upward firing quad cannon set ups. I thought they were all twin cannons.)

not sure if it was the 217, Pretty sure it was a dornier that had 4 vertically mounted guns just behind the cockpit,,, Im SURE it wasnt a JU88

JU88, I'm very interested in all sorts of aviation, but especially WW2 aircraft. If you come across a picture of that configuration on the 217 could you post a link to it? I'd love to add it to my collection.

It was first put in the ME110 nightfighter version, Later in another NF aircraft - could have been a dornier. AFAIK it was a dual 20mm cannon, known as 'SchraagMusiek' (Spelling)



not sure if it was the 217, Pretty sure it was a dornier that had 4 vertically mounted guns just behind the cockpit.

Dual 20mm cannons mounted at ~20 degrees forward from the vertical. Easier for the pilots aiming.

Remember those old WW2 documentaries - World At War. Watch the one called 'Whirlwind' and there a Lanc pilot describes how these Night-fighters slaugtered the bombers, due to the lack of a belly turret.
