I already have steam and my steam games are spread over three different drives and three different Steam Games folders. So I won't install it in C: drive altogether. But the UAC, isn't that going interfere even on a seperate physical drive/SSD too?

About the eye candy part, I really don't know what any of these mods do. So what I wanted to ask was: Is there any mod included in The Berbsters pack that does improve textures or anything related to graphics?
The UAC only affects what Windows considers as "System", so the Program Files folders and the Windows and all all sub-folders, but also your Documents folders to an extent. Neither Silent Hunter nor JSGME, having been written to the Windows XP standard, are "authorized" by Windows Vista and later to alter the "protected" files, which any changes to certain files (ie: "cfg") are then rolled back by the Windows system to their previous state. If you use Windows to "move" the "Program Files" folder, as you can the Documents folder, on some Windows installs, the answer is then yes, the UAC protection follows them. However, if you create the "root" folder, then Windows leaves them alone.

THEBERBSTER's mod is a re-mix of Webster's Game Fixes Only (GFO), but THEBERBSTER does include "Real Environment" as part of his mix, along with the "GFO patch" for it. All you have to do is follow his install instructions, noting that the mods are numbered in the order of install, but that you can skip parts (usually) if so desired. The game was written for a 1024x768 system during the XP days, but as "antiquated" and "legacy" as Windows might consider it, it actually still does rather well for its age. Just don't expect miracles of course...

Just discovered the Dark Waters mod. Can it be installed along with The Berbster's mod?

Hi i
You will need 2 separate installations to do that.

Thank you. So you mean one installation with The Berbsters mod and the other with the Dark waters mod?

Hi i
Yes, you will need to use MultiSH4 as they need their individual saved games folders.
Just make 2 copiesy of the stock game and rename them
The original is your master the other 2 are copies. Peter

MulitiSH4 by Potoroo

Add LAA to each game
Large Adress Aware (LAA) Easy Install > Pictorial

Thanks for the support. My SH4 with The Berbsters mod is running fine so far. Just wanted to ask: Are webster's improved US torpedoes V1,2 & 3 included in The Berbsters or will need to download and install myself?
