I don't remember to have any problems with downloading GWX -- but I used the torrent link. You can also try the amazing archive from this archive:
ftp://hartmuthaas.no-ip.org/Public/S...3COMMUNITYMODS


You can search for GWX - GREY WOLVES EXPANSION inside.




To all,
Is there a list of standard recommended mods to use with GWX? The ones that everybody agrees upon them?


I tried several list in this forum, but they are too extensive and without many commentaries which mod do and fix what.


Thanks)

Not sure everyone agrees with each mod list provided by subsim users in the thread linked below, but this should help.

Mods that say they are for GWX will work....if not I have looked at the mods list people have used in the thread I provided a link to make an educated guess as to what to try.

Default Messages and torpedoes

This is a random message from GWX as you all know



Is there a mod that changes the "handwritten" messages into typed ones? Not historical but I like it better.

Thank you

You can make youre own mod. Change this Font is easy.
Create new folder in JSGME-MODs-Folder with a clear identificable name. Create the needed Sub-folders called "data\Menu\Fonts\" and copy from FPHunt15.off and -tga into Fonts-folder and rename them as FPArhi24.off and -tga.
That way you dont need any changes in menu_1024_768.ini.

Would you like to create youre own Font, its not that easy.
Read this:

I think this has nothing todo with GWX.

Greetings.

Support help with GWX 3.0 installation

Hi !

I would like to ask you for advice with my present problem with SH3/ GWX:

I have been absent for a long time due to a stroke and several hearth operations that had a very negative development to my memory and my health in general.

So, resuming..... I am a 64 years old that loves submarine simulation and that needs help with the re-installation of GWX 3.0.

Last week I asked a young IT guy to help me with the re-installation of GWX 3.0 and it was a complete waist of time because we could not install GWX, even using the backup files that I had from my previous PC.
He told me that we had god knowledge of PC games and that it would take 1 hour max to do it........ A week later and he can not solve the problem.
I am very unhappy with this failure and I am trying to find a solution to this problem as I live in Halmstad, a small town in the west coast of Sweden.

So my question is : Do you know someone with true experience with SH3/GWX that could help me with reinstalling GWX in my PC, using an internet connection??
There are specific programs that can be used to connect one computer to another and grant access to its contents and make a software installation from distance.
I have a W7 ultimate , 64 bits,game PC for exclusive use of FSX flight simulation and submarine simulation. Th operating system is in English
I have installed SH3 V1.4 " vanilla" with no dvd modification.

Is this something that you could consider?? or can you recommend a fellow subsim that could help me??

I look forward in hearing from you.

Kind regards

If you have the GW3 files including installer you just run it and point it to your silent hunter 3 install

Not a lot to go wrong with that

Its all I did after a long lay off when reinstalling,have pretty much same set up as you OS wise

I'm guessing you did a normal install of SH3? It can't be installed in the c:\Program Files (x86) folder. You need to uninstall it completely, and then install it in *any* other folder. Perhaps c:\SilentHunter3-V1.4\ or something similar.


You should consider doing a vanilla install, then using SH3 FE or Multicopy to copy it over into a new directory (say c:\SilentHunter3-GWX\ and then install GWX to that directory.


Best to keep a completely vanilla install and then multicopy it into new versions for, say, GWX, NYGM, WAC, etc.

LB,
Getting old does have it good points, but it certainly has its downside as well....as I am also finding out. I am going to expand on the good advice 3catcircus just posted.

First things first....
Start from scratch and make a fresh clean install of SH3.

I recommend you follow the following instructions for installing SH3 that is posted in the link below. It will guide you through removing starforce protection if you have an old DVD, apply the no cd patch etc....scroll down to the post titled (Re-)Installation Of SH3's basis: V1.4b. Read through the instructions, take your time and follow them carefully.

You can skip this part if you have a newer DVD that does not have starforce and is already updated to 1.4b, but I think the no cd patch may still be needed or useful.

www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=212323



I have my SH3 vanilla installed in c:/SH3_Stock, don't install it in the "Program files (X86) folder. I only use it to make copies. In your case once you have SH3 vanilla installed you can go two ways.

Frist, and pretty simple you can use a program called [S3F]_SH3-Front-End. It automates copying your original vanilla SH3 files to do a multi-install.
In otherwords it will copy all the SH3 files and folders to a new folder, say C:/SH3_GWX you create. It will then setup your save folder and you will have another functioning SH3 to install GWX to.
Use the GWX single file exe. just double click it, tell it where your newly created second copy of SH3 is installed and it will do the rest.
You will have three new items on your desktop if the install of GWX went well. A shortcut to start SH3 GWX, a JSGME shortcut and the GWX manual. Read the manual and it will guide you through the rest of the setup.

Download the front end program here:

http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/down...p?do=cat&id=56

The program and its use are explained here:

www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=212462

[S3F]_SH3-Front-End also automates the installation of H.sie's patch which you will to want to use. The patch adds alot to GWX and also use the front end program to enable the 4GB patch.

You can also do it manually (I prefer this method, but that's just me)...create a folder on your c drive name it SH3_GWX or whatever. Copy all the SH3 files in your original install folder then paste them into the new folder.
Put the program MultiSH3 in the new folder, run it and it creates the save folder for SH3. Then install GWX or whatever supermod you choose into the new folder.
You can then follow H.sie's instructions included with the download of his patch and manually install it. Just take your time and take it all one step at a time.

H.sie's patch download link:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/down...o=file&id=4412


MultiSH3 download link:
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/down...o=file&id=4411

Once you have all this figured out and installed you will want to look into using SH3 Commander plus Sailor Steve's Ships Names Mod with GWX, but that is for later

Hi !

Thank you very much for your reply with a detailed explanation.

I have been offline some days, due to a relaps....

I will try to use SF for the multiple install, and I wonder what is the hsie patch that you mentioned in your reply.

What does it do? What is the correct way to install it??

I look forward to read your reply.

Best regards,
