I was just wondering if anyone has restored the original contacts file (Ie red for warships blue for friendly and solid lines for sonar.)
while using RuB. I like most of the features but I'd really like my colored contacts back http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Yes, I have and you can do it yourself also. Look in the readme. I don't remember the exact mod names, but it's something like "bla bla's new contact mod". Look at the files that the mod modifies and delete those from your RUB file (there's a bunch) then reinstall it over a fresh install of the game.

Edit: For the new ships that RUB introduces, you have to take a _shp file from another ship, rename it correctly and replace the blank _shp file with copied file. Name the new file the same as the other files in the folder and keep _shp at the end. I used the C2 _shp file for all of them.

If you have problems with it, let me know as this was one of the major fixes I did for my personal enjoyment of RUB. The good thing is that it doesn't affect anything else in RUB.

If worst comes to worst, I can look into it again and tell you the exact files in RUB to get rid of and what files need to be copied to where and renamed. But try it yourself--familiarize your self with the game files. It really helps you with mods.

Cheers,

Cool, I figured as much , was hoping someone knew of a zip file somewhere with the files I would need. I've narrowed down the directories where the RuB contacts file is , and the ships.
I just need the files. Ubi was really paranoid about piracy on this game apparently...all of the files on the disk are obscured. Do you know if the game will install to more than one directory on the same machine ? If I did a fresh install to another direcory I could snag the files from it and still keep my current install intact. Hmmm, maybe I'll give it a shot.

I don't know if you can install the game in another diretory. In my opinion, it'd just be easier to do a fresh install of the whole game and then put your version of RUB over it.

Nailed it. I did back up my old data files, I'd completely forgotten http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Basically I did what you were talking about. I figured out which files I needed by looking at the files in "all grey contacts version 1.1".
I then went into the old data files and did a copy and paste of the required files. The maps
are back in full technicolor http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Thanks man.
