Default New member looking for advice

I've recently got the game on Steam and downloaded the latest patch. I then downloaded GWX3 and nothing else. I play on windows 10. I'm having issues in career mode when in certain ports it gets to aout 90% and just goes off. I have searched the forums and there are lots of different answers. Just wondering if someone can push me in the right direction please.

Does that mean you saved a game while in a port and you cannot reload it afterwards? If so, that is one of the issues SH3 has with a tendency to corrupt savegame when other units are near. Try to only save a game when you are as sure as you can be of there not being other NPC units in the game or near on land. Do a hydrophone check to be sure there are none outside of visual rendering range. And saving submerged also has a tendency to cause problems.

There is little that can be done other than revert back to an older savegame and try again. The GWX 3 manual has a list of do's and don'ts in regards to prevent (savegame) bugs. Required reading material, although it applies to SH3 vanilla, not just GWX.

I know it is a pain, but such is life with this game. (hey, that rhimes )

Also when playing a SH3 Campaign when out on patrol I save my patrol saves as a date eg 12-4-42 ,14-4-42 ,18-4-42 so you can see what the ingame war date is on each save so you dont have to load them first also I write down on a A4 sheet every save date name and what i have sunk eg 4/28462Brt if all British or Grt if other Allied nations.

When you go back to an earlier save all saves after that save are deleted automaticaly.
