Tafkat, I do have the same model of Betty you list, but my drop-down menu simply does not include the "1 x Type 91 (late) torpedo" that your game seems to include. I just checked it and confirmed: I don't have this option listed. All I have listed is "1 x Type 91 torpedo". As I wrote, I am runing V.4.10m. I suspect the same absence applies to every single other of the torpedoes you listed originally.

If anyone has an idea of why Tafkat has torpedoes that I don't, please share.

They hand out the Type91 Late only to experienced flyboys? Very Happy

Joking aside, actually, when taking the screenshot I already stepped to 4.10.1, don´t know if this may have caused the difference, but there was something mentionend in the 4101-readme regarding the Type 91 late. Smile

Thanks Tafkat. I think I'll play safe and stick to the unmodded version 4.10 for now. Are you positive that by selecting the right plane and arming combination I can gain access to all these torpedo models you listed earlier on?

In the meantime I have been playing a bit with a Betty, flying ridiculously low and slow, sometimes succeeding in not having the torpedo disintegrate upon entering the water... as people suggest here, practice is probably what I need now.

I have two other questions in case anyone cares to pitch in:

1) I only use the QMB (did not find detailed directions on how to use the FMB yet - lots to learn!), so the only ships I can ever practice on are those of the "Coral Sea Online" map. Except learning how to program my own quick missions via FMB, is there any other way to get hold of quick missions that feature ships for sure?

2) I've been experimenting with rockets (HVAR and the british 60 lbs) against shipping, and like what have seen so far. Only problem is that QMB only lets me fire 2 rockets at a time. Is there any way to select ripple fire or firing the complete rocket load at once? For the record, I'm using an unmodded version 4.10.

alower,

There's at least two new QMB maps available right now as I write this: Online4Summer (a very mountainous map) and Italy Online. Neither of those have ships as targets; mostly because there's no "ship" target available. When I wrote the Italy Online missions, I was going to add a mission with ships, but the player won't know if the mission will have ship targets or not because there's no briefings for the QMB missions. You can find both QMB packs in the download section.

I'm re-working the Online4Summer missions right now... my map template was crappy, so I'm recreating the whole batch. As far as ship destroying missions go, you should look around the download section for missions involving naval targets... there's bound to be some very good ones.

OK, I'll search "4.10.1" in the download area and possibly create a new forlder with a modded installation - should be my first! Thanks again Tafkat.

I have spent some time trying to locate this patch 4.10.1 for download and did not succeed... Can anyone please help me locate it? I'd like to try the improved (late) torpedoes.

I realize this thread is a bit old, but I'd like to suggest setting the AI to do torpedo runs and watching the playback. You can learn how to do it right that way since the AI seems to be good. I set up some B5Ns the other day and it was really fun to watch.
