If you are not very familiar with the use of SH3 Commander and how to install the files please read the documentation that came with SH3 Commander. I will try to explain it here but the SH3 Commander help file provides a more complete explanation.

First, look in your SH3 Commander folder and you will see a folder called Date. Inside the Date folder is a long list of numbered folders starting with 19390901 which stands for September 1st, 1939 in yymmdd format. Inside each of the numbered folders is a set of folders that match the folder structure of SHIII. These are the folders and files that get copied into SHIII based on your patrol date.

Now look at one of the unziped skin pack files you downloaded. The first folder is just the name of the zip file and does not matter. Inside that folder is a folder called Date and inside the Date folder is a long list of numbered folders that correspond to the same yymmdd format as mentioned above.

All you need to do to install these files manually is unzip the archive and then select the Date folder in each and copy/paste it into the SHIII Commander folder. The folder structure of SH3 Commander will remain unchanged if you did this correctly. By copying these files all you are doing is adding a Sea folder to each of the SH3 Commander\Date\yymmdd\data\ folders and inside that Sea folder is a list of folders for each ship whose skins change on that date.

To install using JSGME just set it up to copy the files in the same way. Sorry that is not more clear but it really does not seem that complicated to me

Guys,

Thanks for the info, but shortly after my last post I got it working by installing JSGME into the SH3 Commander folder, extracting the files into the MODS folder and activating them from there (as per melnibonians post).

Last night I tried to connect back to the web, but couldn't get a connection - was on tech support helpline listening to hold music for 30 mins before giving up!!

So I'm sending this today from the office.

I appreciate the long replies you have given, but I guess I already had it working by then - but couldn't let you know...pain in the ar*e ISP!

I must say, from the few I have seen so far in-game the skins look great!!

Cheers!

Is combined single file exactly similar to stock four files?

Yes, except the first folder has been removed so when you unzip the combined file it starts with the Date folder.

Is it possible that these "skin" mods will be made available on a CD, as the earlier mods are ?

Let your fellow kaleuns here know where you reside and it's quite possible someone near you will be only too happy to oblige

Thanks for putting this together.

May I ask if there is likely to be the equivalent for the subs? When I first installed GWX I remember that if one uses SH3Cmdr then was not to install the skins add-on at that time.

Cheers.
