problems with generic patcher
 
For some reason once I use the patcher the game will no longer start (though my pc thinks it is running - nothing in the task manager). I remove all the patches and then the game will load as normal. I'm using the snapshot included with the megamod.

Any help would be great.

I use the dynamic Env. main mod w/ high resolution sea bottom, Atlantic kelp, realistic colors, sleet for winter campaigns. I also use TDW's exhaust smoke, the better sea foam mod that is compatible w/ dynamic env., and the more realistic shadow's fix/mod. I also use SteelVinking's interior 1.2 mod coupled with another mod (forgot the name of it and I cant seem to find it in a quick forum search) which adds details like hanging meat and boxes of produce about the sub's interior. I also like Stormmy's sound packs.

I don't mind doing the work myself, maybe if you could guide me a bit?

Most of the Dynamic Env. submods and other strictly graphical mods should be compatible although I can't say for sure...

That's not Steam version of the game you've got there, right?


1000+ downloads without major stability issues, that's encouraging news!

If you use the Patcher, the SH5.exe will change.
As a result, you must give SH5 firewall-permissions again.

Better Sea Foam V1.5 (i.e. the most recent "full" version of the mod), is fully compatible with Dynamic Environment and with most of its optional mods. Just enable it of top of DynEnv, and let JSGME to overwrite the conflicting files. It is not compatible with DynEnv wave and clear water surface submods though. Either skip the latter or, if you want one orboth of them, enable them on top of BSM full :up:

Thanks Paajtor! That did it.

One more question. Any reason why I can't get the deck gunners to fire on their own. I set a target, tell them to fire at long range, then fire at will... and they just sit there. Do I need to positively ID the ship first?

Try to select battle stations first... Are you trying to attack polish ships at the beginning of the campaign by any chance? IIRC, from some reason our gunner won't attack them no mater what...

I was having some difficulty too. The best way i found to combat it was to ensure that everyone is at battle stations, assign a crew to the deck and have them man both the flak and deck gun. That combination of commands seem to work 80 - 90% of the time.

Has anyone tried the mod in multiplayer ?

Thank You

zev871 02-27-14 05:15 PM

Yes it is the polish ships at the beginning. I'll try what RushTheBus suggested and if that doesn't work I'll just keep manually firing them.

See if the deck gun guys use the deck gun after reaching Kiel in the British coastal campaign . I have the same problem in the Baltic with my mod list .

CTDs
 
Hello,

first of all I would like to say thanks to all the people that invest so much time and energy in all these mods to make SH5 a playable game. :up:

I recently installed the "wolves of steel"-megamod and really enjoyed the first missions. But for any reason the game now often suddenly crashes back to desktop. In the majority of cases this appears directly after loading a savegame at sea (while savegames in the harbour can still be loaded correctly...). But sometimes the ctd appears also while regular playing.


Has anyone the same problems? :dead:


Edith says: Could it be that the ctd has anything to do with the recent update of the Ubisoft-Gamelauncher?
