I am sure this has been discussed before and I am sorry for raising the topic again. I couldn't find a thread on this on the forum. Could someone please explain to me how to change my U-boat numher since i just got my new XXI and the computer is still calling it by my old VII-B's number, U-54. That is the sub i got rid of and I shouldn't still have her number. It should be U-2*** something something like that..... I know where some of the files are, but please try to be specific in your explanation. Thanks everyone!

you go into My Documents, ShIII folder, and then into your Career folder and open all the folders that are called 'Patrol" and "Log" searching for U-54 in them and replacing that with your own number.

Do that while you are in port before a mission.
Once its saved, be sure to load the ;in port after patroll' game, and not the 'before patroll' one.
It should work.

Do you have to change the # in every log file? like log, log 2, & log 3?
