As a Steam owner and player I can confirm that this idea works. I have been playing all day with only one CTD. And that was my fault.

Thanks to everyone who is still working on making this game work better then what ubicrap made.

Also thanks to Echolot who pointed me in the right direction to get what I needed so I could test this.

I'm off my crew is well rested and ready to sink something.

First post, thanks to all for the brilliant work here guys. After playing vanilla I got frustrated again with the bugs, unrealistic mechanics and poor mission design. My personal worst bugbear is the ship damage mechanics which totally break immersion.

I have my shiny Sober's in hand, then I notice only compatible with patched and I'm a steamer - holed in the hold.

Unfortunately, I could not register mscomctl.ocx (DllRegisterServer failed), so I can't unpack the Installshield cab. The 1.02 patcher detects a version conflict, so no luck there either.

Would someone be kind enough to send an exec my way?

Dankeschön, patched successfully and confirmed working.

It would be great to have this wrapped in the patcher!

PS: Not to take away from an amazing piece of work: could we have a noob mode for the patcher that activates all of Sjizzle's recommendations per http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=205620, or another noob friendly author recommended loadout without the extensive clicking. For example, I decided not to disable battery charging when surfacing but I don't know if this will break something else.

PPS: Could we have the patcher search in the first selected directory for the files to patch, because when your directory is D:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Silent Hunter 5\ and there are 282 items in D:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\, it's fairly intensive to click to this for each of the files to be patched. An address bar would also be great for copy-paste.

THANK YOU!

Though I'm having trouble finding this install shield file on the web somewhere.

TDW's method seems to make sense but from what I gather from the thread, UBI won't install back into the steam/common directory. So back to the drawing board for the automated process?

Seems the OP's method works, just confused on this install shield file.

EDIT: Nevermind, my google-fu needed some coffee this morning. Trying out this method now...

Good work! Finally got me to buy SH5, and it is only $10 on Steam. Cheers!

I can't get "InstallShield_Cabinet_File_Viewer" to work either. I was wondering if someone could help me out?

Thanks a lot. I actually got the viewer running myself at the exact same time too.

Massive thanks!

Decided to go and buy the game because of this work (loved SH2/3 but had shied away from 5 due to its rep for needing modding) + the prospect of Sobers mod soup of loveliness

Unfortunately - same issue as DragonLord - my googlefu is weak as I have only found some slightly dodgy looking forum links to the Cab/Hdr file viewer...

Anyone got a link?
