I am in the middle of destroying my first convoy, and I cannot reload the deck gun. I have 1000 rounds of AP rounds, but I cannot select them or fire them.

You mean AA rounds? They are for the flak, 2mm ammo will fit into an 88mm gun but won't do any good.

Make sure you have actually manned the deck gun. You can jump into the deck gun station without having actually "manned" it, and you can't do anything with the gun though.

Make sure you have a watch officer stationed, and tell him to man the deck gun.

Whilst were on the subject of deck guns. I have noticed that the range of starshell is not controlable. It seems that gun elevation just changes the altitude of the starshell and not its range. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

It's not a bug. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

You simply can't change it.

No, not the AA rounds. I have 1000 rounds of armor piercing rounds (AP) but my deck gun says out of ammo. Is there a way to load the ammo so it can be used?

You're misreading it. If you've got 1000 rounds, that is 20mm rounds for the flak gun. Ammo for the 88mm deck gun comes in 40 round increments. By default, my VIIB has 160 rounds of HE (4x40), 40 rounds of AP and 40 rounds of starshell. Single 20mm flak guns come with 1000 rounds, twin flaks have 2000, and once you can put the second flak mount on the boat, double the above. With two twin flak guns, I've got 4000 rounds of AA now.

Have you messed around with your cfg files?

Usually you only have 40 AP shots, the 1000 greyed out shots are the ones for the Flak.
