Had the same problem as the post above!

Synchronized=Yes

in the main.cfg fixed it after many hours of headscratching.

Hi there!
Does anyone know if it is possible to somehow increase witdh of lines drawn by different plotting tools? They are very thin, when they are not selected they are barely seen and indistinguishable from map grid lines. It would be helpful when preparing attack based on geometric plot.
Thanks

Is there a way to reduce the resolution to one of the same ratio (16:9)? Because I want to use the mod on my laptop and its native resolution is 1600x900.

Hello, and first of all thank you for this wonderful mod!
It enhances the visuals of the game so much that it blows my mind.

I used the mod succesfully for an year or so. I play the game with GWX pack installed.
After coming back to the game and continuing my campaign I noticed that most of the times I try to reload a campaign save, the game crashes to desktop.

I uninstalled rest of my minor mods from the game and tried with and without the "Ahnenerbe WideGui 1920 x 1080" (with JSGME) and found the following:
- No crashes whatsoever without the WideGui-mod
- Loading Single mission results in CTD rarely
- Loading Campaign saves results CTD sometimes 50 times in a row, and sometimes I can reload the saves just fine many times a day

What really confuses me is that the game with the WideGui-mod installed can work just fine for a week without a single crash, and then suddenly I'm unable to continue my campaign with the mod installed.

I searched the forums for similiar problems and found only few occurences and no real solution. I think fitzcarraldo had similiar problem but managed to fix it somehow.

Any help would be highly appreciated since I'm reluctant on playing the game without the 1920x1080-mod.

A Warm Welcome To The Subsim Community > Mussalo

Saved games crashing when loading will be a compatibilty issue.
Windows 10 does not like SH3.
Run in compatibilty mode for Windows 7.
Run all your applications as administrators.
Post #6 Running Applications As An Administrator.

Remember SH3 was designed in the days of VGA monitors with a 4.3 aspect ratio.
Post #7 Changing Nvidia And AMD Radeon GPU Settings

Your game also needs to be using the 4gb patch application.

Take note also of Post #361

Thank you for your warm welcomes kaleuns!


Regarding THEBERBSTER's advice, what makes things odd is the randomness of the problem: like said there can be times reloading works a-okay, but then CTDs for a week.

I did the compatibility fixes one by one, testing in between, and all of them at once. Did not help.


I however have not installed the 4GB patch to my recollection (old install, and I'm a newbie to the game anyway).
I logged the memory usage when starting the game and loading the save:
It peaked at ~ 1,6 GB before crashing, so if the maximum available to the game is 2 GB (?) then it might on the limit.
This also would make sense on the randomness.

I did not install the patch since I understood old saves don't work too well after that.
Maybe I get confirmation once I have the courage to abandon the beloved old crew of mine..

Hi Mussalo
It is recommended that the 4gb patch is used for SH3.

If you have followed my advice you should not be having any further loading problems.
Ctd's happening from corrupted game saves is another problem.
Personally I have never ever had a LSH3-2015 corrupted game save to date.

Darojax in his post #361 quite rightly points out that when using a wide screen mod you need to make a change in C:\SH3\data\cfg\main cfg
Having to changing Synchronized from No to Yes is another Windows 10 issue caused by an update.

As I previously said Windows 10 and SH3 have to be made compatible in different ways to have a playable game.
