Title: Reupload of the famous P.T.Boat Mods
Post by: Triad773 on October 03, 2010, 01:46:55 AM
I happened to find them in my 'Done' folder. I put it on my site. Click here for the US version (http://triad773.com/PTBoatUS.rar).

Click here for the regular PT Boat (http://www.triad773.com/PTBoat.rar)


I am not anticipating redistributing it at the same site I got it from being an issue ;)

yeah, it seems the original PT boat thread is one of the handful of threads possibly lost during our last 'down time'. :(
feel free to use the one in Triad's link in the meantime. i'll have a look at uploading the two 'skins' i did for it, being the US PT boat, and the German E-boat.  :)

this is the air.ini entry for the PT boat:
PT-Boat           air.PT_BOAT 1                                 usa01 SUMMER
there was no entry for plane_ru or weapons_ru, but those are unnecessary, anyway.
i'll have to ask around for the original posters of the mod to re-upload it.
i just made the US 'reskin', not the original complete mod.  :)

Thanks Malone..Do you have the ini lines for the U.S. version. This is the one missing from the D/L.
Title: Re: Reupload of the famous P.T.Boat Mods
Post by: SAS~Malone on October 03, 2010, 01:12:49 PM
there is no separate entry for the US version.
it's basically just a 'reskin' of the Russian one... ;)

edit: meaning that you have to overwrite the original mod files with the US ones, to get the US version.
best to just make a new folder inside the PT Boat folder, actually 2 folders, call one "Original' and the other 'US'. then you just need to make backup copies of the original files inside the Original folder, and then swop the contents of the folders out with the files in the Plane folder, depending on which version you want to use. you don't have to do this, but if you decide you want to go back to the default version, it'll be tricky if you haven't done this...

This is my ini entry in air
PT-Boat           air.PT_BOAT 1                                 usa01 SUMMER
I have both installed, I THINK you install the first, then the US in the same folder and you choose this in your mission builder for the US.

I get this

Hope all works out

The US version DL when unzipped terminates prematurely and ends up corrupt, looks like a nice mod, the cockpit will probably be better off with one of those created for the flyingboat playable mods  ( PBN/PBY ) cockpit along with the turret :P

...stupid red stars ...

Sometimes I'm wondering why man who is playing Russian game named in the honour of the Russian plane says such a words...
I think we shouldn't be political enemies here... I have some not good thoughts about USA, but I won't say them because it is not a place to behave so...
I also feel a bit said we have more USA/GB/other countries mods than Soviet, but I'm silent until such a shit happens.
So please, keep such a statemants e.g. stupit red star in your mind... I know that you just want some other countries'  variant, but try to express your thoughts smoother, please.

I agree with you so much! This place is not a political battlefield, even though I am a Chinese doesn't mean that I could say I hate Japanese just because we were enemy before...
Besides, it seems that few people here are interested in Soviet or Chinese countries mod, so sad :-[

Draken, sorry mate, this was never tested on HSFX, so i leave it to someone using that pack to get it to work.

to run it in DBW  1.71.   4.10 

1) i make a copy of the original PTBOAT

2) i copy The 3DO replacing by the US ...

In my game it's ok .... ( not sure it's a general rule)

3) i suppress the para FLAG in Hier .him because i do not like a so large flag ... (it's just a  choice)

i hope will work for others ...

Title: Re: Reupload of the famous P.T.Boat Mods
Post by: WALLYGATOR on August 23, 2014, 01:30:45 AM
to have the cockpit i do nothing .... (Is in the game)

Just using the game ...   with two game commands

1)  open cockpit   (Open canopy command)
2)  position high the pilot      and  you can ...   (In DBW 4.10  for me .... )

To change a little the skin :

1) download this RAR
http://www.drivehq.com/file/df.aspx/publish/VVJACK/wwwhome/SKIN/PT-Boat.rar (http://www.drivehq.com/file/df.aspx/publish/VVJACK/wwwhome/SKIN/PT-Boat.rar)

2) replace the two file of the RAR in the following subfolder of the mod "US  PTBOAT" you have
......\#DBW\PTBOAT\3do\Plane\PT-Boat

Save original files before doing it  in case of ....   (i am working with DBW and many mods so not sure all is working well in your own game)

I am not the author  of this skin i just make a modification for RAF usage  (Rescue)

Post by: Fresco23 on August 21, 2016, 11:24:50 PM
Hi all.

Since links don't work, and no one seems to have the original PT-boat mod, I did some digging and found a copy at the following site.

DISCLAIMER: The site appears to be ancient. I didn't go too deep, but I didn't see any posts there later that 2010. However, in the spirit of respect, I have linked their site instead of just posting up the MOD:

http://conolev.comxa.com/showthread.php?tid=231

CREDITS:

None are presented on their site, OR in the downloaded file. However all three vehicles appear to be identical to the old versions I remember. They have simply been packed up together. All credit is therefore given to the original mod creators, whomever they may have been.

IMPORTANT:

The following installation is for a 4.12.x game. Older games installation WILL be different.

1st:

Once on the site linked above, click the large "DOWNLOAD HERE" link.

2nd:

DISREGARD the following line seen just below that: "IMPORTANT: You are required to have this [Click Here] for these vehicles to work."

3rd:

Extract the mod to your #SAS folder in the usual manner.

4th:

Open the mod folder and DISABLE the classfile called: 294ABC86A89FAEB4. Just add a "-" like so: -294ABC86A89FAEB4. This classfile interferes with the "DiffFM" that is already included in 4.12. If you do not disable it you will get a CTD on game start.

Run the game. You will have to make FMB missions to drive the boat, do not start with it in the QMB.

Start a takeoff waypoint wherever you want, and add at least one other waypoint.

The boat doesnt want to turn to starboard, only to port. Not sure why. Its still fun.

Best regards:
Fresco

i get crazy!
THANK´s for finding, what i´ve been searching for so long.

...and that´s what i did to make it float in DBW, in cause of the already included cars:

1. downloaded, extracted and copyied the file into my #DBW folder
2. renamed it to PT-BOAT, opend it
3. erased all files exept these, named BOAT and 7519C7A0A6BE229C
4. opend 3DO, erased COCKPIT
5. opend PLANE, erased JEEP and WAGEN
6. to air.ini i only added:
PT-Boat      air.PT_BOAT 1              usa01 SUMMER

the "maiden-float" i did from a simple sea-plane airbase on beautifull caroline islands map.
same with the U-Boat version.

Dear friends!

Please help me! How to make this fantastic boat turn right? It always turns left without my control! So great mod!!! :) Is it possible to fix this issue?
Title: Re: Reupload of the famous P.T.Boat Mods
Post by: Hubberranz on January 16, 2019, 12:51:25 PM
Tendency to turn left being tiresome:

   1-   I trim right like creasy.
    2-   I use level stabilizer function to rest my hand off the control station.
      3-   I aim right of the destination with step 2 , just like if I was navigating in a strong wind.

(  ...because Its still decays to the left a little, in the long run.  )

I hope this will help U to have some fun with the mod. Not a fix however, sorry.  :(

Post by: Marat on January 16, 2019, 02:36:19 PM
Oh, that's too bad!!!
It will lower the enjoy of using this fantastic mod! I guess there must be somewhere the values in its "data" to change? If I only knew where. Something makes it turn left everytime! There should be a solution, no? But the idea and the mod are great! So interesting missions would be made with this mod  :)
