You are more than welcome Nicrolyte. Re-reading my reply above, it almost looks like I was nipping Aktungbby's scotch stash (you'd better go check, mister!), or else I accidentally deleted most of a line... this might make a bit more sense:

Is this still under development or has the dev team vanished into the murky depths?

Default Installing LSH3 in Steam

I have tried to install LSH3 for steam according to the instructions found on Berbster and other locations of using another location and naming the folder SilentHunter3 with no spaces. However, when I try to start the download to this location I immediately get the message 'unable to locate packed archive'.
Any suggestions as to a possible solution/what I'm missing?
If I've overlooked something repeated before many times I apologize!
Thanks in advance

Hi steevo
When you complete the STEAM conversion to your new location make sure your SH3.exe is set as an administrator.
Do not download in to your "SilentHunter3" folder as this will be your main game folder.
You should be able to download LSH3-2015 to any folder of your choosing I would suggest a new folder., let's call it for instance "LS3 Download"

This folder is only the download folder for the LSH3-2015 zip file.
When downloaded go to properties and make sure it is not showing "read only" ticked.
When you open the zip file and select "Extract" it will want to extract to the "LSH3 Download" folder which is what you want.
You will now see all the related files for the game.
Clicking on the application you should be able to browse to where your game folder is which for you is "SilentHunter3" it is at this point it should show a valid SH3.exe.
If you still have a problem you can check this out by starting the game SH3.exe.
If the game loads to the menu exit to the desktop and you know you have a working game.
If it does not then your STEAM conversion is at fault.

Default Installing LSH3 in Steam

I am grateful for the lengths you have gone in trying to explain all this but am a bit lost! Is 'steam conversion'something I have to do before following the original instructions? I can't quite follow the steps necessary here. Do I access the exe file within steam and do what you suggested?
Thanks

Yes unfortunately LSH3-2015 is not compatible with STEAM.

Thanks,
Not giving up on this just yet. You say you can download LHS to a separate place before extracting to the new separate place but that seems to be the problem as it won't do that, but needs to find 'extracted package'. If you have instructions on how to make the folder change within steam first that would help and give me a fighting chance of seeing this through maybe!If all fails will just have to re-purchase the DVD!
Cheers

Acccording to the Steam Forum it worked for these 2 guys.

Question
Quote:
does anybody know how to install the living silent hunter 2015 mod onto the steam version of silent hunter 3? I got an error message saying that the version is installed 'in a wrong place'. seems that the lsh modders does not support the steam version. is that right ? is there a known work around ?

This is how i did it...
Go to your steam game library folder (../steam/steamapps/common/), and rename the sh3 folder to something with no spaces, e.g. Silent Hunter 3 -> SilentHunter3. Then install LSH3, it will install fine. After you installed LSH, you can safely rename your sh3 folder back to its original name. LSH3 will continue to work fine.


Comment after following the instructions.
Quote:
yes! I had not only to rename the folder into something without spaces but to move the silenthunter3 folder to another place because the path also must not contain spaces. After that the LSH3 installed just fine and I could rename the folder and had it moved back to its original place in the steam subfolders.

I've got it running on a Steam install also, easy-peasy (sort of), though I do not recall the details completely. You cannot have the game installed under the Program Files (x86) folder though, so if your Steam Library is under the Steam install (the default), you'll have to move that. In other words, Steam will default to "C:\Program Files (x86) \Steam", and the Library and SH3 will then be "C:\Program Files (x86) \Steam \SteamApps \common \Silent Hunter 3\". I moved my Steam Library (Steam stays where it is, just move the Library) into "C:\Games\", so that I now have "C:\Games \Steam \common \Silent Hunter 3\". After that, then change that folder name to SilentHunter3, and do the LSH install, pointing it at the new Library folder of SH3. Another thing about the Steam game is that it is the "latest" or most recent version of SH3 v1.4b of the executable file (v1.4.1.1??). If you need more help with it, let me know. I've had to put a new hard drive in the laptop I'm on here, and I'll have to re-install my whole Steam outfit, and the games... sigh... Anyway, if you do, start a new thread and we'll leave a trail for others to follow (hopefully, not down to the pea patch)...

Default Installing LSH3 in Steam

Thank you both for your patience for a real novice at this!
I think I understand now that I have to go into steam and from settings go to the steam library folder and create new pathway (add a new Library Folder) as you've both explained such a C/Games..... Is that a new folder just for SH3 or for all the games in the library? After doing that and changing to SilentHunter3 (no spaces) I can point the installer to it and it will download.
I hope I'm finally right on this and have not left anything out!
Many thanks to you both again.
