Hi!

I'm having the exact same problem when installing LSH3 2015 on Uplay version.

"No valid SH3.exe found!"

So far I've reinstalled the game more than 3 times (in various paths eg. C:/games/SH3 ...), along with registry clearing, ran as admin in compatibility for Win 7, unchecked read only options etc... Tried all I could find in various tutorials online. I also couldn't get any unofficial patch versions running some time ago.

After snooping around in a file I found it strange in SH3.exe Certificate details it says it was last signed by Ubisoft on July 12th 2016. Maybe LSH 2015 installer is set to recognize older version of SH3.exe? Shooting blanks here since I've tried everything to get this thing running.

Default Fix for "No valid SH3.exe found!"

It seems I've found a solution. I somewhat doubt its entirely legal since It includes switching some files including sh3.exe file. For this reason I won't link the files. If its legal let me know and I'll link it.

For the reference: Found it within minutes by googling this issue in German language.

Good luck to all who encounter this problem in future.

How does this tutorial installation compare to how you tried to install your game before you used your fix?

Well its completely accurate and great tutorial overall. From what I read, this error I had only occurs on Uplay version of sh3.exe. So in picture 6, instead of "This is valid game version" notification I got "No valid sh3.exe found!" message once i selected my shIII instalation directory. If I had used any other version of Silent Hunter 3 it would have gone super smoothly with your tutorials which are superbly detailed!. I just wish this .exe editing stuff wasn't such legal gray area.

First impressions on mod itself: This mod seems a bit on the easier side compared to GWX. I bagged 10k tons of Polish freighters on 2. september 1939 in Kattegart!! Is this historically plausible?

Kind regards!

Matt

Hi 1a1
There are several ways you can make the game more difficult.
Making changes to the HSIE will certainly up your game difficulty level.
There is a very good manual which shows you what all the changes do and mean.

Check this out

Making changes to SH3C


Game play settings



Changing to the OLC GUI widescreen version will make ship identification more difficult.

Thank you! After playing with some setting it's all better now!

I love how planes hunt you relentlessly when you get close to Britain! Can't even get close to Scapa Flow in my Type II.

Default Strange convoy routes

Hi! After a few more evening playing I found this thing that is bugging me...

Is it normal that there are still small British convoys found in Kategaat months after Norway and Denmark capitulate? Doesn't really seem accurate for them to be there since 3. September 1939 in the first place.

Are there any settings that reduce enemy ship appearance frequency?

Hi 1a1
Cannot comment on the Scandinavian side of the game as I am always down around the French coast and the Med as there are rich pickings there.

You might need to contact the LSH3 team for this one?

Hi br
V17 is currently test mode LSH3-2018 and although I have received numerous expected release dates and done some testing I have not heard anything from the team in the past few months.
It looks like this is heading for 2019 now.
Peter
