I noticed the last post in this thread was back in October and like a few of the previous posts, I've had trouble getting the D2D Activation Key to retake. I moved the game to a new computer with Vista Ultimate 64 bit. Besides messing with the Vista-better-way-of-doing-things (?!?), the error message I get when I try to activate the game is "You have entered an invalid Unlock Code:unlock code has invalid format". I wrote the D2D support team 2 days ago and so far I'm SOL, no response yet. If D2D has a count on the number of times one can activate the U-Boat Addon I may have exceeded it by now with the original key.

Anyway, I'll see if they get back with me soon, waiting 2 days on a trouble ticket with no response is giving me a cold feeling about them. Guess 10 bucks only gets you so far!! God bless them, everyone.

Thought I'd give an update on the Direct 2 Drive activation problem I have after trying to install the U-Boat Missions Addon which brings the 1.5 patch to your game.

In another thread regarding the Patch 1.5 Rip's suggestion of
Quote:
Don't install it beneath Program Files. Just install the Ubisoft directory directly on the root of the drive. Otherwise Vista screws with write attempts on the files. I am running in Vista 64 and no majors issues. Not sure about the D2D but I have reinstalled mine a few times without issue.
I began to think about the specific properties of the Ubisoft folder on the default "Program Files" directory.

I didn't move the Ubisoft directory from the Program Files folder, but I opened the folder with a right click and went to its "Properties" page. Under "Attributes" I unmarked the "Read-only" setting, and hit the "Apply" key to change the properties of the Ubisoft\Silent Hunter Wolves of the Pacific folders and files. This will allow for both "read from" and "write to" action to this specific folder.

I found the shortcut to the "Games" folder in the C:\Users\"Your Name"\Music (?!? is this the folder the "Games Folder" is supposed to be in?) and found the SH4 game had already had a shortcut installed there. I moved the "Games" shortcut folder to my desktop from the "Music" folder and clicked the submarine icon. The game offered the same activation screen with my old activation key so I clicked the "Activate online" option. This time it went though successfully!!!! Yeaaaaaa, progress has been made. The game loaded and I'm back in business with the 1.5 patch installed. I haven't tried launching the game directly through the .exe file of the SH4 directory, but I suspect it will now that D2D was happy to confirm the activation key authenticity.

I have not heard from D2D yet, maybe today, about the question I asked. Thanks to some help from the SubSim forum though, my activation problem is solved.


========================

Revised later this date.

I may be mistaken regarding D2D not helping (and probably fixing the issue). After I puffed out my chest thinking the above "Properties" file changes did the trick, I found that D2D had sent an E-Mail yesterday (Sunday) stating they had fixed the activation key issue on their end and all should be good now!

Well it is!! Probably in spite of my efforts.

All you need is SH4 and the UBM add-on. Nothing else is needed. The UBM add-on will take SH4 to version 1.5.

I've been trying to hunt down a copy of UBM last few days. It's out of stock almost everywhere. Amazon.co.uk sells it for £35(!), all local stores here in Finland are out of stock even if they still list the title. It seems like after the eXclusive-release of SH4 came out all UBMs were pulled.

Has anyone tried the gamesload.de version, is it really localized or multilang?

I'm getting quite desperate here with my quest to find a copy cheap.

Nope, can't find it in there. Amazon.co.uk link only has it for £35 which is quite hefty. Amazon.de has the eXclusive gold-edition which I'm considering if I can't find it elsewhere.

Default U-Boat addon

I have also tried everywere for months.All I get is that "the product is not supported in your country (South Africa ) Why the Hell not? we are past apartheid! The locals say that UBI does not support this game any longer, therefore they do not keep stock.
