F.A.Q’s and Game Fixes.

My game crashes when loading the blue screen.
This can happen from time to time but should not be anything to worry about.
Reload the game as before and you should be ok.

When the game starts to load it seems to freeze.
Your game is gathering data and this takes time.
Depending on your computer’s performance this can be 2 to 10 minutes or more.

My game gets near to the end of loading and then crashes each time I reload it.
This is a compatibility problem.
If using OS10 use compatibility mode OS7.
If using OS7 try XP2.
Change your SH3.exe to run as an administrator.
Change the SH3Commander.exe to run as administrator only.

I have made a number of successful game saves and now my last saved game will not load and is crashing.
Do not make any game saves near destroyed marks or near a lot of activity.
Allow a 60km distance from the destroyed mar to your U-Boat.

My periscope will not stay up.
If you have enabled the ‘HSIE Periscope fix patch’ then this will be the answer.
When a certain speed is reached the periscope will start to blur and then will automatically retract.

I want to enable the HSIE patch in JSGME but my anti-virus will not let me.
Set your anti-virus to make an exception for the HSIE.exe.
If you do not know how to do this, with the HSIE still disabled turn off your anti-virus.
Make any changes to the disabled HSIE that you wish to make before enabling it.
Turn the anti-virus back on.

My Telegraph has just stopped working.
Put the Telegraph into a Reverse Speed and then move it to a Forward Speed.

I wish to change the number of days in base.
In SH3Commander go to ‘Optionen’ and then ‘Career Options’.
Tick the box ‘Set number of days spent in base’ and change the 28 to your choice.
Click Apply.
Click Ok.

Why can’ I get better protection against aircraft in bad weather?

See Post#34.

I am using Ahnenerbe's wide screen mod but when I transfer to the Eprobungstelle Flotilla although my base shows as Stralsund my U-boat is in West Africa.
Ahnenerbe's wide screen mod is not compatible with the transfer process.
Disable the Ahnenerbe mod and enable the LSH3 wide screen default mod for the test mission.
After transferring from the test mission and before you start your next mission disable the LSH3 wide screen mod and enable the Ahnenerbe wide screen mod again.
Repeat this process every time a test mission is done.

How many metres in 1 knot?
1.852 metres

I selected the 30th Flotilla and when I start the game I am in West Africa not Konstanza.
Disabling the Mod _LSH3-2015__BunkerStart will fix the problem. (Acknowledgement to ThePrody)

F.A.Q’s. OLC.

I am using the OLC mod but after I take the range my mast values seem to be wrong.
You need to multiply your mast value x 2 when you make range readings even when the recognition manual does not state that.
