Default TWoS Installation

Hello and thanks for making this mod. I'm anxious to play it, but I get only to the UPlay launcher window and it just spins for half hour without launching the game. My install location is this:

C:/Program Files (x86)/Ubisoft/Ubisoft Game Launcher/games/Silent Hunter 5/

Could that be a problem? Are there special steps to install the UPlay version of the game?

Hi mrfritz44,
Maybe you should try to update your uplay game launcher. Does your unmodded v1.2.0 game work?

Hi mrfritz44
The Program Files (x86) file is a restricted directory and it is not advisable to install your game there unless there is no alternative.

After uninstalling the game launcher run a registry cleaner before installing again.

Uninstall your game launcher from the Control Panels Program and Features and replace it with this one.
