You would appear to be an exception as Windows 10 does not appear to be compatible with SH3.
Maybe the fact you have a new system might be the difference.

Default The Burbster

The Burbster, seems to know a lot about the game, but also seems to just post the same links over and over. Does not really help very much. I did not like all the mods, just way too much. Would prefer to just fix and play the game as it was originally designed.
No disrespect intended.

No disrespect ? " Does not help very much " and you spelt his name wrong LMAO

He's posting same links to answer the same old questions asked over and over mostly as a result of many who can't be bothered reading guides. Anything not covered almost always gets his full attention

The game as it was originally designed was not only broken but missing a lot of the best features from the previous Silent Hunter series

There is no magic fix for SH5 its takes a little research and patience to get working , when that's done its arguably the best subsim out to date

Icon14 Got it running finally

Just installed SH4 and SH5 from disk onto Windows 10 this weekend. Haven't played either since the days of XP.

PROBLEM: If I selected full screen, they would always run cut off in a small rectangle in the upper left of the screen with no sound or ability to input commands. Running windowed was possible but kind of sucked.

SOLVED: I was running at 2560 x 1440 with 125% text scale. I set my screen resolution in windows to 1920 x 1080 with 100% scale, and both games now run full screen at this resolution with no problems.

Perhaps this may help some of you with high-res displays.

Icon9 SH5 does not start

[SOLVED]

Hello, dear mates!

Havent been here for a long time, as well as in the game
From some sources i have heard about tWoS megamod, and I became relly exited to get back into boat and send some cigars to fat freighters
But I cant get my game started. I installed it via uplay, and it does not start, the uplay screen with loading symbol is hanging on the screen and thats it. Tried to reinstall uplay and the game, tried different HDDs (C: also), tried all compatibility and admins rights - no effect. Just for experiment tried to install megamod. And the second problem (may be even biggest) is that Generic Patcher also doesnt start
I dont know what can i do.

Sorry for my English, guys.

UPD: OK, I figured out, that when I try to start SH5.exe or GenericPatcher in task manager appears 'dw20.exe microsoft .net error reporting shim (32 bit)'



I have final .NET framework included in Win10, as well as .NET 3.5 turned on in 'Windows Components'.

UPD2: As I didn't want to wait so long for solution, I did old-fashioned windows reinstall with C:-disc formatting And the game works
So I suppose there was some registry errors which i didn't manage to fix, and full windows reinstall was only a solution for me.

Hello,

not sure if I'm in the right place. I purchased SH5 through Steam and the game was working for me for about a week. Then one day the game stops working. It just won't start.

-I get the usual pop up "Silent Hunter 5 Battle of the Atlantic CD Key" window, I click play,
-I get the usual message "Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to make changes to your device?", I click yes, my cursor briefly has an hour glass shape attached to it which was also what usually happens, then nothing.
-I'm on Windows 10
-It's set to run as administrator
-Compatability wass set for Windows XP Service Pack 3
-I've tried searching Google for every search term I can think up and am getting no where
-I've watched in task manager and can see the game briefly appear then disappear.

Anybody have this experience or have any suggestions please?
