Default Installing TDW's Generic File Patcher Part 1

Last updated 1st june2018
This Tutorial is for installing TDW's Generic File Patcher (GFP) anywhere on your system as a stand alone application.

If a complete uninstall is done the stand alone GFP application is unaffected by this.
When the re-install is done just reconnect the GFP Patches to the SH5 Folder again.

The Wolves of Steel (TWoS)
Sobers Mega Mod

Link to the (GFP).

Do Not put the GFP in JSGME or in any Silent Hunter 5 folder.

It is recommended that you backup the 9 original files below that are in your Silent Hunter 5 Main Folder by Copying and Pasting them to a New Folder somewhere safe. (Picture 1)

Likely looking Main Folder Path. C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5

1. Cameramanager.act
2. EnvSim.act
3. SimData.dll
4. Kernel.dll
5. Sh5.exe
6. SHCollisions.act
7. SHSim.act
8. SHSound.act
9. SH_NClient.dll

1. Make another New Folder and put it somewhere where you can find it easily as you will need to use this folder each time you want to make changes to the (GFP).
The Ubisoft Folder is my recommendation as it easy to find and always available.

2. For the purpose of this Tutorial I will call the New Folder GFP168.

3. Download the (GFP) in to the GFP168 Folder. (Picture 2)
