Default A Quick Question

My former computer was a Windows 7 Home Premium, and simply would not run SHIII, and of course, Gray Wolves ... even in compatibility mode.


My new computer is an Acer Inspire, with Windows 10, and it is running older games like Starfleet Command 3, that my old computer would laugh at me, for. So, my question is:


Will SHIII and GWX work on my present computer?



Note that I'm currently enjoying the Wolves of Steel, but I still miss GWX.


Thanks ...

Hello everyone,



I have run into a problem with my installation of this mega mod. I bought the Steam version of the game, and it seems to work just fine as the vanilla, un-modded, version on my computer. However, when I tried to install the GWX Gold edition, I noticed it would often freeze on loading or shortly into the mission. It works in the training missions, but if I try the single missions, it locks up. The Vanilla game does not do this and loads much faster. Any ideas on whether I installed the mod wrong or what could be causing these problems? I have tried using compatability mode setting it to Windows XP Service Pack 3 but that has not worked.

A Warm Welcome To The Subsim Community > Maphisto86

If you are running Windows 10 then compatibility mode is Windows 7.
If you are running Windows 7 you should not really need a compatibility mode.
Important that you have the 4gb patch enabled in your main game folder.
Important to run your SH3.exe and GWX exe applications as administrators.

Thank you for the welcome THEBERBSTER and Jimbuna . It has been a long time since I played Silent Hunter III and even then it was brief. First time playing with mods. I tried to install the 4GB Patch as found on Subsim.com but it won't recognize the Steam version of the game. What is the patch for? I will also run SH3 in Windows 7 compatability mode.

I managed to find a version of the 4GB patch here and got it to work thanks to a Steam thread I found. I probably will have to create another Steam folder in the future though for other games like Silent Hunter 4. Thank you for your help THEBERBSTER. I will definitely look at more of your guides to solve problems in the future. That is quite the accomplishment getting all those threads organized and catalogued.

Not sure if this was posted somewhere else (probably was) but I am having some problems of my own, regarding mods.

The process has been pretty simple thus far: load mods one by own to test for standalone compatibility, then start combining them to ensure they are all compatible with each other. However, one mod has been bringing trouble, and thus putting a stop to my progress.

The TKSS18 German U-Boats Compilation mod, for some reason or another, does not seem to work with GWX, even when loaded by itself. Does anyone have a fix/solution/alternative? I'd love to hear. Thanks in advance!

On a side note, there is still more mods to test in the future, so more problems may arise as a result. A few that I intend on using are:
-Ahnererbe WideGUI 1920x1080
-FM_NewInterior v2.1D
-Thomsen's Sound Pack V3.2cg
-ManosEnvironmentPro V5

What are the characteristics of your computer? Do you have enough RAM? Do you use 4 Gb Patch?

8GB RAM

I do not have the 4 Gb patch, no. Would it make that much of a difference? Running GWX without the aforementioned mods works without issue.
