One of Sierra's overlooked games. I enjoyed playing it, but it is a little bit more complicated than most Sierra game, what with the sub simulator and all of that.

Could anyone help me with the part when you have to signal the Coontz? I do everything as theoretically told in the walkthrough, I try tens of times with the same result every single time.

1. Does blue or red "arrow" mean that the active sonar is on?
2. I suspect it's the red one - if so, I'm doing it right up to this point. Does "sending a single ping" mean pressing shift-F3 and pressing it again after less than half a second or pressing shift-F3 and pressing it again after an audible ping is actually heard?
3. Anyway, every single time I get the message "Ship moving away at high speed". If I press it before the message about erratic pings is gone, it appears sooner. If I press it later, it appears anyway. Every single time. It's as if exactly pressing it triggered the message, even though it should trigger the right action. I seem to be doing everything as told, but not even one half of a time I can stop the ship from leaving. How can "they" expect players to react in microseconds?!
Plus - no matter if I react in two seconds, or half a second, the result is the same.
The gambling, even the battles weren't that bad (and mind that I just HATE simulators, I have never played one apart from giving it a little try), but now I'm absolutely, completely stuck while doing everything as it seems to be told.
