I don't understand why my ships in San Francisco don't upgrade!

It is 4/7/42, the ships are on upgrade 4/42 and on "yes".
Do I have to press any button I do not see or have them docked in a TF? My ships are in port at the moment.

Well, if nothing works, I better leave them as I need them in combat soon.

Cheers.

Do you have anything on those ships - supplies etc ?

A screen shot might help identify the problem too ...

They need to be disbanded in the port as you have them
In SF you should have enough supply
I think there may be a random factor
They must be unloaded
It should happen automaticaly

How long have you been waiting? Have they been in port the full week or did they just get there?

those ships that require shipyard space for their upgrade won't be able to start if the SF dockyard is already full.

The only things that stops a upgrade, the switch is not on, the yard is too small or the ship has supplies onboard.

I am not sure that this is a factor. As long and the shipyard is big enough it should not matter how many ships it is holding. That would only slow the process down. Can anyone confirm this?

I just over loaded Pearl with shipps.. the shipyards went to some rediculas number b4 I interveened and moved ships to peirside.. so yes, the docks and slip and dry docks can be full and ships will still attempt to upgrade, I hae only seen the ships in tf not upgrade, but have not tested supplies... makes sense they would unload first

Thanks for the massive response.

At the moment it is just the submarine Grampus with 29 sys damage. 2 more ships are in SF but not damaged at all. I assume my shipyard is totally free for repairs and upgrades. It is not in a TF. I disbanded it at least 5 days ago to repair it there.

I have to add that I run the non admirals version, just the original one patched up to 1.60. I could not install the available patch in the members area as it crashed with an exception error. So I left it with the highest available patch.

I am about to send out my 5 CV's to either Pearl or SF, but if this function does not work in my version, I have to leave them as they are.

Cheers guys.

So you're playing WITP, not WITPAE?  In that case this would be the wrong forum.

You can't get up to the current version of the game?  If you patch in the proper sequence you should have no problem, assuming that you have a legit copy that you've registered and a serial number.

Try to reinstall from your disk and then go through the proper sequence of patches to get to the latest version of the game.  If you got the electronic download version you should be able to start over as long as you have the needed information.

Ooops, sorry. Didn't realize that the original game is still in the forum.

My copy is the downloadable copy and I registered it in the member's area. I have done the patching now to 1.806. My sub is still not upgraded after another 2 turn cycle but i will post this in the WitP forum then.

Cheers.
