If anyone's noticed, there was a bug with the 7th flotilla whereby if you are in 7th Flotilla in September 1940 and thereafter the game will keep telling you "New Base Kiel" and then "New Base St. Nazaire" whenever you load up the career. The problem is that the Flotilla.cfg lists 7th Flotilla as being in both places during that month. To fix the bug, go into Flotilla.cfg and scroll down to the 7th Flotilla listing. There you'll find the following lines:

Flotilla2=904
TO2=940
NbStartingDate2=5
NbDate2=7
Emblem2=data/Emblems/SubEmblems/Flotillas/7th flotilla.tga
NbBases2=3
Base2_0=750;Kiel
Date2_0_0=1939
Month2_0_0=8
Date2_0_1=1940
Month2_0_1=<span class="ev_code_RED">9</span>

The last number - the <span class="ev_code_RED">9</span> is what needs to be changed. Change it to 8 and that should solve the problem.

That's been posted in the community help forum in the "Known problems thread" already a couple of days ago... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I get a similar one on my career but it does not matter which flotilla or base i'm at. I constantly get the message that my base is Willhemsville. (Spelling is most likely wrong but I can't be bothered finding it out. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

Okay, Quillan found it first. That's the problem with having three separate forums - I never go to the community help forum 'cos I reckon I don't need help and anyone with real problems will post on the busiest forum. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
