SH3 should work with Windows 7. Others with 7 can play it. Do you have 32bit and 64bit installed? I've heard you can switch back and forth or do a setting change. Look into it and see. Also Compatabiltiy will let you run older games on 7, as I understand it. I think it will show for Windows 98, ME, and XP.

And a few days ago I downloaded Open Horizon II V.2 Full.

But HOW do I install it?

Hi Verdun

Maybe this can help a bit;

Hey guys maybe someone can help me. I have just started playing SH5 after recently pgetting into subsims thanks to SH3+GWX. (They're so much fun i actively switch between SH3-4-5)

Anyways my problem is with SH5 and OHII i think. I no longer can see the secondary mission objectives (ie: sink 50,000 tons during the eastern british campaign) on my map when i select a mission or when I'm at sea. I was able to see them before my mod soup but no longer can. I also cannot select a new objective while at sea. I am using Sobers Mega Mod list minus a few things (namely; real nav, and a few graphics mods).

I originally thought it was the IO strategic map but removing the mod did not change anything. Thanks for any help

So they no longer tell you the primary objectives or do they not count at all?

They still count, but you are not given anymore an exact tonnage figure.

Hi Trev,
I have a couple of questions RE political territory editing:

- Should political layers be edited separately for each campaign?

- I have enabled OHII, opened Monsun_Gruppe.pj in ME (from the data folder, not from MODS), waited for the program to load all the layers , unchecked all the layers but 'PoliticalTerritory1939', clicked on the 'Map Locations Edit Mode' button. After doing it, I can see the existing shapes, but how do I add a new shape? I right clicked on the map, selected 'Add Map Location', and a new Icon appeared on the map. I can assign a name to it, but I cannot figure out how to draw a shape or to choice its side.

- I have noticed that several locations in map are missing from defsides.cfg, and vice versa. Is there any realation between map locations and nations defined in the cfg file? If yes, how do they interact?

No this should be a common file with all campaign folders
Click anywhere on the map to force ME2 to goto warp speed for loading the layers

You can not draw a shape - you must select one from the drop down menu. You can then adjust the scale and rotation

see here for the shapes - C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5\data\Terrain\LocationMaps

No link here.
Use the start and end dates to make the shapes match the defside file.

I did, but apparently nothing changed on map... I couldn't see any shape at all

I see. Is it possible to add new shapes? How do you open/edit .php files?

hahaaa, now everything makes sense. Defsides is used only for determining the side of air, land, sea and submarine units of each nation, as assigned in roster, isn't it?

Talking about it, how do I see on map ports/player bases/airports used in each campaign?

Edit the PoliticalTerritory1939.mis and use the same file in all campaign folders. Just paste it into folders when updated.

Try adjusting the scale and/ot zoom level of the shape you added - it could be that you have made it very small and cannot see it

Quote:

Yes - I do not have photoshop so I could never do a .shp
Im sure you can make .dds shapes and they may work too

Yes - this is you target settings for axis allied

Quote:

load layer editor_locations.mis and click on the view editor icon (same one as lets you see the shapes (map locations).
Then zoom in to the location icons

Quote:
/player bases/
same

Quote:

Air layer but check the dates for start/end on the bases on the map

ME doesn't let me loading mis files before an existing project is loaded, or a new project is created.
What's the correct way to open those mis files

I am sure I had set a scale of 1.5, as in your example, but I will try again

is photoshop capable of handling a .shp file?
isn't .shp a vectorial format?

When you open a project, the mis layers loaded are set by a list in a .pj file. So all layer loaded in MG campaign is set here - Monsun_Gruppe.pj

When you open the project (pj), all layers will load and have a tick beside their name to show this. Layers unticked are still listed in the .pj file but not loaded into ME2.

You can unload layers by unticking them. - TIP: right click to untick all layers other than the click ed one.

If you have more than one layer loaded into ME2 - the one that you are editing is the one that is highlighted blue.
Layers can be editied with any info - you can put ships in the air layer, but this would make it hard to manage.
Always be careful whick file is highlighted for editing when you work.

You can add new layers from the file manu - name it and add info.
When you save it - its name will be added to the .pj file as part of the project.

You can add a file from another campaign - by selecting add exsisting file and then pick. This will now also be added to the .pj list/project.

There is also a zoom to view level - this will set at what zoom level will the shape be drawn on map.

You shouls also check the dates.
If you have to shape to appear in 1941 - make sure that ME2 is also in 1941 and not 1939

On 11/03/1945, U-532 U-188 and U-532 met up 1,000 nm SE of Mauritius [pos: 32.21S, 72.48E] for refitting from Brake, before heading back from Indian Ocean to Europe. Due to bad weather, the refuelling took longer than expected. On the morning of the day after, only U-188 and U-532 had successfully refuelled. U-168 was attempting to do the same when the group was spotted by several planes from the British escort carrier HMS Battler. The U-boats managed to avoid the Allied attack by diving promptly, but the tanker was forced to scuttle before capture by the destroyer HMS Roebuck, who had been called as reinforcement.

Kota Pinang, Alstertor, Esso, Friedrich Breme, Gedania, Gonzenheim, Spichern, Ermland, Altmark (Uckermark), Dithmarschen, Westerwald, Franken
