Default Any issues with SH5 Amazon Download version?

Hello,

Casual subsimmer returning here. I got so frustrated with the steam version of SH5 and trying all the different work arounds provided by the awesome community here to get the necessary patches and mods running but I ended up with just uninstalling the game and going back to SH4.

Recently had an interest to get back into SH5 (been on a german WW2 sim kick lately with Post Scriptum, Il2 BoS, and now SH5 ) but I don't want to deal with steam's nonsense. I found a version on amazon that'd downloadable HERE but I'm wondering if it's just going to be the same issues again or if it'll be just like having a DVD copy?

Before you spend your money you should know that the latest "The Wolves of Steel" megamod should work just fine with v1.2.0 Steam version of the game.

Cheers!

Not with TWoS because it contains Sputerfish's "Steam conversion tool" in the installer.

And to answer your original question...All SH5 versions except Steam are perfectly moddable (generic patcher ECT).

Hm alright great. I'll give it a go with steam then. All I really want to run is TWoS anyways. If I have any headaches cause of steam I'll just get the amazon version it's only $10

Thanks for the help! Happy hunting!

But the steam version just forward you to Uplay, so in real, it is not a steam game.

I can confirm that the Steam/UPlay run SH5 takes the TWoS mod-set a-okay. I've come across some minor bugs, but nothing that appears to be unique to Steam/UPlay, nor game-breaking.

I have the steam version and I have the wolves of Steel over the top... No problems with running the game...
I made sure I followed the instructions here on subsim and watched a few vids on the install of it all.
Worth the time to look at the instructions

Mods are found in TWOS Part file and can be enabled with TWOS Jsgme.
Be aware activating others mod found elsewhere (here on forum download) are certainly not compatible, or can brake TWOS features
TWOS is already made of hundred of mods existing here but adjusted so they work as intended; hence the very long loading time BTW...
Activating others mods is at your own risk
