I am beginning to wonder the same thing. In the last week I have attempted to install Sober's Mega Mod 9 times and have had to reinstall TWoS 4 times. Since I had a career in computers I'm pretty confident I am competent to follow the instructions. I am beginning to think the only way to have a stable experience is to have a Windows 7 platform free of any Steam with a DVD install. I can't find any downloads that are not tied to Uplay and Steam. Every time Steam updates something SH5 goes back to its original Steam iteration.


I did get SH5 (Steam) installed and TWoS working, but since it failed 3 times before I am not sure what to expect. One thing I am trying is to not use any Time Compression. Maybe this will just delay an inevitable anomaly, but I'm going to give it a try.



Here's hoping!

There is a thread for problems/bugs/CTD reports for TWoS users. I suggest you guys to use it. :yep: As you can see for your self, TWoS CTD reports are pretty rare these days and many users don't have any problems with it, including my self. All instability and CTD problems are now almost always user related, so make sure to be thorough in your reports so we can figure out what went wrong...:yep: Cheers! :salute:

Any idea what this is?

Don't tell me. External torpedo reserves transfer was active? Did you read carefully description of this ability? No? :hmm2:

It's actually 24 days by default but I don't understand what's so shocking about it?? :hmmm: Historically in ww2, U-boat preparation for next patrol lasted well over a month. Anyway, you can tweak your bunker pauses manually or with included KSDCommander application...Read documentation...

For my part, I apologize for casting any dispersion on TWoS. I will refer to the bugs board. FWIW - I didn't say I have had any CTDs. The failures I have had have all been failed functionality within SH5/TWoS. Right now I have SH5/TWoS working, so I have no bugs to report. Maybe I did miss some crucial step in the first three attempted installs. Time will tell.



On another note, should TC have anything to do with stability? Like I said, I was intending to run SH5/TWoS without TC, but is that even a possibility I should concern myself?


Standing by.

With TWoS, not so much. Alt-tabbing on the other hand can mess up your game. Anyway, playing any SH game without TC is just too much "hardcore" for my taste..:yep:

If you have disk space make a copy of your SH5 install and after you run the TWoS install on it create a short cut to start the game with and don't start it using steam. The TWoS installer
has an option that basically converts your steam SH5.exe to a standalone DVD version. It will still launch Uplay but it bypasses steam completely. I have 3 separate SH5 installs still within my Steam folder but they are not altered by Steam unless I launch them using Steam. I keep one as a backup of the original game, one for career and one for mod creation.

Thank you. I'll try your methodology out.

Do you know if this scheme works for Sober's Mega Mod too? I know it is tougher than the TWoS. I will probably be sent to Davy Jones Locker the first DD or DE I come across, but I am intrigued to try Sober's talk-not-buttons style of interacting with the crew and boat.

IT should if you save a copy of the SH5. exe that you made during the TWoS install and then just copy it to the version using The other mega mod and launch it from that SH5.exe or a shortcut of it. Remember the key to this is that the SH5.exe gets converted as part of the TWoS install. As I said it will still launch Uplay ,theres no getting around that but you can set the settings in it to be offline mode but it shouldn't change anything anyway if you are using the 1.20 version of SH5

{even more off topic}
by the way for those of you using my texture mods I finally got around to installing the latest updates for TWoS and they should still work just fine in either TWoS or a standard game. I have been really busy in the real world, mixing 2 albums and have a client ending their tour and coming in to the studio at the end of the month to start a new album, and this is the first chance I have had to post anything about it.

When I receive a radio convoy report, if the heading is ENE, does it correspond roughly to 67-68 degrees or is it anything between 45 (NE) and 90 (E)?

From the next update every item you sellect from the equipment page will have clear and unambiguous (with BIG LETTERS) English translation which is impossible to miss. In your campaign the translation will become visible only after new campaign start though since the old descriptions is already embedded in your gamesaves... Here is a small example...
