Beta 2 did not have all the collision and damage meshes. This one is complete -- I hope.
Maybe changes to the ships.ini.

The installation notes also give the entries for the other ini and properties files for the first time.

Full text and activation for the Object Viewer also provided for the first time.

In my download zip "HMSEaglev1.rar" contains files... the latest file timestamp is 8th Dec. 2011 at Hier.him.
Is this latest release v1, right?

And I find Hooks are written in Hull2_dmg.msh and smokes aren't seen in game.
I erase Vapor Hooks in Hull2_dmg.msh, smokes are seen.

 >:(   You are right.  :-[

Please delete the entries below [Hooks] and [HookLoc] in Hull1_dmg, Hull2_dmg and Hull3_dmg.  I will amend the files when I have time.

I hope someone can help me with this one. I installed Eagle per the readme. Everything seemed to go smoothly. Game runs fine. But!

When I went to FMB to run a little test cruise, as is my habit, Eagle shows up on the ship list. However The "show" function comes up blank, and the FMB refuses to place the object on the map. I've not encountered this before

I'm running V409m with UP201. The new Lex installed smoothly and works fine. Ten minutes later the Eagle won't swim. I'm sure there's some little thing that's fouling things up. Could use help. Thanks.

Have you looked in the logfile?
http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,13457.0.html

If the menu name appears but nothing appears in the "show" screen then the hier.him is not loading.
I have just uploaded v1.1-- does anyone else have this version working?

Check the folder structure is correct.
