Is there a way to toggle 'Automatic Sub Operations' once a PBEM game gets going? It's currently 'ON' and I can't figured out a way to turn if 'OFF' for player(s)? In the preferences section of a game turn it's grayed out and is not changeable.

Not changeable except by manually changing each SS to human but then iirc they revert back to computer control after disbanding in port.

Yep it really is irritating. I got the Sub Ops switch mixed up in my head in my latest AAR against Dirty Harry, and had somehow got it into my head that I was switching 'on' sub ops for players to control

Oh well, you live and learn. It just means I have to periodically check up on subs returned to port for repair and read my ops report carefully.

Turn off display of Human Controlled TFs. Then browse the map and give them subs manual orders.

Yes, it is annoying.
