Description
Projekt Messerwetzer (6.5MB)Silent Hunter II/Destroyer Command DirectPlay
Conversion and Multiplayer Upgrade by Duane Doutel
PM v1.03 for SH2 and DC

This release incorporates the following multi and single-player feature updates to Silent Hunter II
* Maximum number of players increased from 4 to 10 with new DirectPlay Doutel MP engine
* Larger AI convoys, up to 30 ships
* Better Multiplayer performance--very few drops!
* Enhanced time compression--now up to 128x allowed.
* Peer-to-peer system, meaning if host disconnects, game continues with another player automatically enabled as the new host.
Instructions: We strongly suggest a clean install of Silent Hunter II and Destroyer Command and application of the official Ubi-Soft Interop patches before applying these upgrades.
  1. Uninstall existing versions of SH2/DC
  2. Install new versions of SH2/DC
  3. Apply Official Interop patch v1.1
  4. Apply Projekt Messerwetzer upgrade
  5. Test and play the games.
  6. After PM performance is found satisfactory, apply other mods and add-ons as desired
The reason is we have tested and found the PM upgrades work as expected with fresh installs and the v1.1 patched games; due to the many and differing mods and add-ons, we cannot provide quality tech support unless you are running the game in the same environment as we built Projekt Messerwetzer in.
Once you have installed PM on a fresh copy of SH2/DC with only the Interop patch v1.1 and only after you are satisfied with the performance do we recommend adding other mods and upgrades. This way you know the PM upgrade worked in an original configuration. If you install a mod that will not work with PM, let us know in the SUBSIM.COM Radio Room SH2 forum.

When you select the MP Mission as host, you MUST DOUBLE CLICK the mission or you will only see one side (axis or allies). If you forgot to double click on it, back up a couple of screens and try it again...it should work just fine.

This version of Projekt Messerwetzer contains all the feature mods (silent running, resupply, manual dive plane control, etc.) of the earlier versions of PM. This is the ONLY version you need. Be sure to use the English version for the English version of the game, and the German version for the European German version of the game. Be sure to read the README files carefully before asking for help.

Known Issues:
  • Sonar station not active; hit F11 then F7
  • Subs sometimes don't hear nearby DD's active pinging.

Oop - beat me to it. This is the vital patch for the best SHII-DC multiplay.
