Just wondering as I'm looking for Uplay d/l and trying to avoid a Steam reinstall and re d\l of TWOS.

Yes very clearly this can be all so frustrating .. You will not get a reply from ubi soft and that launcher Is a big hassle. However, I am The techy But I know what I have done to eliminate that hassle .. My this will help I don't know but as far as installing TWOS 2.29. That is not the issue. But the Ubi Soft is the issue. and for that, I can only offer references to this post ....

@Capt AJ

Yeah this was the last UBI game I ever bought and will buy. I have the cd and Steam, and both are error prone it seems. Sadly, I will have to aaaarrrggh! to get rid of both Uplay and the launcher. And autosave.

Just odd that 2.28 didnt launch Uplay through the SH5.exe and 2.29 does. Was just wondering what had changed or if anything was recompiled on an older or newer executable is all. Cheers and ty

It does for me.

Aimed two torpedoes perfectly at a 7000 tonner, set to go under and break its back.

The detonators didnít work

Fortunately the escorts didnít spot me, so I managed to go in for another attack, and finally broke itís back. Got spotted and dived, but they didnít find me.

Hi Guys
This is for everyone and especially Clyde.

Stating you have an error is not going to solve anything unless you state what kind of error you are having.
Game Launcher error's can be overcome once the specifics are known.

Quite often replacing the default version with this version solves the problem once and for all.

To get help of any kind please give as much detail as possible.

PROBLEM SOLVED

UPDATE: The Sh5.exe was read only for some reason o.O Permissions didn't stick to admin either.

It wouldn't take the TDW options or snapshot correctly. Fresh Steam verify and a new TWOS install with the Subsim d/l 2.29 update works great.
The SH5.exe shortcut now launches TWOS with no Uplay or and all TDW options stick in game.

Sorry for the confusion! Was just fishing around as I didn't have the problem before

BTW the TDW file to disable this is located in the Generic Patcher.exe called....

TDW_SH5_Patches.s5p (sh5)...under the Advanced Users....Disable UPlay browser and Orbit if anyone else wants to know where to do it at.

Default disable watch crew !

I really like the option to disable the watch crew , being able to enable higher tc values while entering and leaving port and when stumbling upon friendly shipping saves a lot of time , makes the game more playable for me .
Ive been fiddling around with tc values in cfg files and never have been able to get it to do what i wanted, so this is great .

Default New Update

I am sure you are all on some sort of patrol and find it Find it difficult to end patrols and the re=patching to the new 2.29 .. I am the only one alone In this predicament? My current patrol, Tanker alley/operation Drumbeat, seems there are endless re-supply and so many ships running up and down the US east coast and given the fact it, Seems unlike the British Destroyers, the American are not as aggressive as the British navy destroyers, Case and Point on my third attempt .. two times traveling off the Spanish coast on the way to the US east coast . I caught a British destroyer hunter group. and got so badly damaged that twice I had to limp back to Lorient and - repair, the third attempt I learned not to go into that same zone, Well Now its 5th ship kill and hoping to survive. This is a total 0f 26th kill. so hard to re-patch start over thanks VDR for an awesome mod .. been in the campaign for 3 months now

latest kill .. this will be #5 In tanker Alley .. I love doing this



One Fletcher destroyer showed up dropped 3 depth charges and gave up after 30 mins, Unlike the Brits. they will hound you until you make a mistake

I'm glad you like the new update guys.
I won't be able to do any modding for the next two weeks or so and my forum activity will be limited to my phone only but I'll try to leave few posts here and there anyway.
I'll monitor other posts as much as I can of course
so feel free to report any problems with current version which I could try to address in the next update.

I felt that the 7 day cooldown of the external transfer crew ability was far, far too long, so I've made a mod to reduce it down to 5 hours: http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/down...o=file&id=5400

As always, vecko, feel free to use this in the next update if you want to
