Hi Shibby
Did you follow all of Vecko's instructions?

1. 1. Open "GenericPatcher.cfg" file with notepad, found in this folder (Silent Hunter 5/TDW_GenericPatcher_v_1_0_168_0)

2. If necessary, edit lines marked in red to match your SH5 installation path (eg. "D:\Games\Silent Hunter 5")...
Code:
ClientAreaWidth=1184 ClientAreaHeight=765 CameraManager.act=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 EnvSim.act=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 kernel.dll=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 sh5.exe=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 SHCollisions.act=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 SHSim.act=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 SHSound.act=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 SH_NClient.dll=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5 SimData.dll=C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5
3. When done, start GenericPatcher.exe found in the same folder and select desired language.
Then, click "File" then "Open" and start hitting "Enter" key like crazy until you see this picture (20 times or so)...

4. Click "File" - "Backup" and backup all offered files ...

5. Now, click "File" - "Restore snapshot" and double click TWoS 2.0_Snapshot.gps file...

6. Done...

*Make sure that SH5 and Uplay are OFF while activating generic Patcher. In case of unsuccessful patching, restart your PC and repeat the whole procedure.
Make sure that the game is updated to official v1.2.0 (not v1.0.5). This step is crucial for SH5.

When you see the snapshot gps file by double clicking on it automatically loads the patches in the file to the patcher.

Maybe this might be useful?
Go to tutorial 3

I got all the correct files and backed them up. However when I did step 5 and restored the snapshot. I didn't have any option to double click
TWoS 2.0_Snapshot.gps. It just never came up and I couldn't see it anywhere.

Does this matter?
Should I do anything about this?

Thanks in advance

Of course it does matter...
You'll find new video tutorial in the first post...If that can't help, then maybe you should better try your luck in some other SH titles...:yep:

It means that without it, your game will stay pretty much broken despite all the mods you have...http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=181433
