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:

I just deleted what was probably originally a snide remark directed in Microsoft's or Ubisoft's direction(s)...

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.
