Hi Berbster,

Thanks for your patience. Many years ago I did some modding for SH2 and later in the beginning with SH3 before the supermods came along and I was completely out of my league. :-)

However, since then I had always used a fresh clean installation of SH3, and I have had a pretty good idea what to expect, and how to treat mods with or without JSGME. That's why I was so puzzled that I couldn't get it to work.
But if you say Windows 10 an SH3 don't get along too well, I will stick with Windows 7. That's no problem at all. I always keep an extra partition with the older OS for cases such as these.

As I said: LSH3 works flawlessly with my Windows 7.

Hi kc
LSH3 is an integrated package where very few additional mods are compatible.
As far as JFO is concerned there is only one way to find out.
Will be interesting to find out.
If you like this sort of game aspect you might be interested in Bl!TZKR!EG'S DEF.

Default LSH widescreen not working

Long time no see. Just got a new rig and here I am playing SH3. Anyway trying to get LSH working properly. It works but cannot get the widescreen to work. I have read, followed re-read, followed the instructions. I have a Nividia 1070a win 10. I noticed there is no d3d9.cfg file. I tried adding this then enabling the mode via Jsgme. That did not work either.
So when I enable LSH full version, then try to enable widescreen I get a lot of warnings. Seems as though the wide screen mods, I've tried them all (that are included with dl) and all I get is a black screen.
I have gone into the Nividia control panel and did what the instructions said, yadda yadda yadda.
Any suggestions? What am I missing?

Hi H
Sounds like a Direct X problem.
You need this version for SH3 to run correctly.
DirectX 9.0C

What Windows 10 version are you running 1607 or 1703 Creator.

Did you use my Tutorials from my signature to install?
Go to C:\Documents
Are you seeing the V15 or SH3 folder?

There are problems with the widescreen GUI at LSH3. Whether it is related to the creators update is not safe.
The Creators Update does not actually contain anything that could cause these problems.
CCoM works with Ahnenerbes Widescreen GUI and Widescreen MaGui and LSH3 is based on CCoM.

Hi Harm
The default LSH3 widescreen mod works with no problems at all.
I have just had a Windows 10 update to v1603 and it is working fine.

I have had an email from LSH3 support that the latest Windows update Creator v1703 has caused a problem with the widescreen mod.
Until this is fixed it will delay LSH3-2017 being released.

LSH3 support do not have Windows 10 and I cannot presently help them until my system updates to Creator.

Microsoft is I believe currently updating those who purchased Windows 10 on systems and dvd with those who updated from Windows 7 to Windows 10 to be updated later.

Hi Peter,

with v1603 the widescreen GUI works, with v1703 not.

You can download and install v1703, when you go to settings/update and security and signing on for the creators update. Click on the blue writing.
After confirming the privacy policy, you will receive the creators update.

As I said, Ahnenerbe's widescreen and MaGui work with CCoM under v1703. LSH3 V15 is based on CCoM.

Hi Harm
Interestingly, I found Ahnenerbe's wide screen mod never was fully wide screen with LSH3-2015, there was always a gap down the sides even though it was 1920 x 1080.
Does it work in full widescreen screen mode without the gaps now with Creator installed?

Hi Peter,

unfortunately I do not know it. My Lenovo T520 has only a resolution of 1600x900 and the creators update can not be installed, the installation breaks with an error message. Ahnenerbes widescreen can be installed, but the compass is only a quarter on the screen.

But there is good news. Hauptmann from the LSH3 team has found a solution.

Here is his post from the forum of designmodproject.de

"Hi, Sorry for the english below...

First, keep in mind Windows Creators is still in beta/Developer preview. So your graphic driver is not probably up-to-date... at least from a Microsoft Point-of-view... Yet, some Manufacturers may provide an update for that upcoming upgrade. But given such updates from the manufacturer may not be fully certified/tested for build 1703, It should be best (for the time being) to rely on Microsoft graphic driver instead of the one from the manufacturer. Here how:

Procedure to upgrade manually the graphic driver issued by Microsoft:

1- go to "Control Panel" - "All Control Panel Items" - "Administrative Tools"
2- right-click on "Computer Management" and select "Run as Administrator"
3- You will see in the tree-view "Device Manager", click on it
4- In the tree-view select "Display Adapters", your graphic card should be listed under it.
5- Right-Click your graphic card and in the menu, select "Update Driver Software..."
6- A Dialog is displayed. Select "Search automatically for Updated Driver Software"
7- "Searching Online for software..."is displayed for a while with a progress bar
8- Windows may find a better driver than the one you had before your Win 10 upgrade.
9- Reboot the computer!
10- relaunch LSH3 with only the main mode and WS-GUI mod.
11- if the game starts to main menu screen all works fine


I have two (2) machines: First machine (ALPHA) with an AMD Radeon 290 R2 Graphic card, the second machine (BRAVO) has an Nvidia 750i graphic card + embedded Intel graphics card 4006.

RESULTS:
Both machines are running LSH3 V15 in WIDESCREEN (both WS-GUI and WS-OLC Flavours tested )

I got the blackScreen with the Nvidia card, which I solved with the procedure outlined before. Unlike many I'm also always going through "New Career", which write fresh config files under "My Documents" folder.

Note: d3d9.dll and d3d9.ini files are OK. They are not the cause of the black screen.

Cheers

Hauptmann"

A user from designmodprojekt has found out that following drivers for nvidia solved the problem.

378.92 20.3.2017
376.33 14.12.2017
352.63 29.4.2015

If you have a driver with 38x installed, you must downgrade to solve the problem.


As soon as I know something about the AMD drivers, I post it.

Hi Harm
Thanks for the very useful information.
I am in the middle of a patrol currently so I am going to wait until I dock and then update windows.
Incidentally my driver is one of the listed 376.33 14.12.2017

Default What a beauty!

I finally have a new Asus PC and can now run Living Silent Hunter III 2015 Edition with all the bells and whistles activated. It is really impressive. Thanks to the LSH team for all your work. Really looking forward to your next release.
