You should do nothing with the files that are older than May 2010. Leave them as they are. That means they are the stock version 1.2 files, or versions not changed by patch 1.2. It is the newer than May 2010 files we are concerned about for you.

If we find nothing wrong with files newer than May 2010, then we can look elsewhere.

Default Mod enabling in SH3

Does it matter if i try to enable a mod via JSGME when the ship is in the sea or in the port?

With graphics and sound mods it usually doesn't matter. Mods that affect operational files should be installed between patrols.

SH3 questions are better asked in the SH3 forums. This forum is for SH5.

Here's the JSGME thread I started for SH3.

Followup note on other residual data stated at post #6. I found **.pj files days later leftover from Open Horizons in the data\Campaigns\CampaignProjects folder after I disabled ALL mods. Files and folders have been checked over and over as stock to eliminate a cause for CTDs. @%^&^$$ that power outage!!!

Who knows now, if JSGME or menu.txt errors from CTD Scenario 6 in the [TEC] Silent CTD Hunter thread was causing my CTDs??
Current mod list post #3 of the [TEC] Silent CTD Hunter thread. Presently still testing large modlist compatibility from causing silentotto CTDs after new version of Open Horizons.

Click on the common JSGME link and possible solutions link at post #1. Added blinking cursor comment under "JSGME Error Message something like" section.

Leave your mods enabled
. Go to your Silent hunter 5 root folder. Delete all your Page******_Draggables.TDW files manually. The game will recreate them when you start another game. (IIRC, can someone else reconfirm this point and let me know. I do not want to give wrong advice.)

Disable all your mods.
1) Go to your Silent hunter 5 root folder. Delete all your TDW***.dll files manually.
2) Go to your Silent hunter 5\data\Scripts\Menu folder. Delete all the ****.py files that are newer than February 2010. Most **.py files are from Multiple UIs for SH5 with TDC. One **.py file is Page CampaignSelection.py from Open Horizons II.


One or more of these suggestions may fix CTD issues or speed up game loading.

I guess I keep those since I have SH5 1.2 and follow this rule:

You should do nothing with the files that are older than May 2010. Leave them as they are. That means they are the stock version 1.2 files, or versions not changed by patch 1.2. It is the newer than May 2010 files we are concerned about for you.

Or do I need to delete those highlighted because that folder is different? I am a little confused.

Thanks for catching my oversight. Sorry for confusion. **py files from May 2010 or newer to be deleted. Post #8 date corrected.
