Default Diving back into SC and 688

I´ve just got 688 for two bucks in the recent sale on Steam and was curious if there is any place for custom campaigns, scenario, and mods? The subsim section has some fixes and documents but I spotted nothing like that.


I´ve noticed at RA mod´s forum that the first post in the international RA secion is offering a HK688 Update Pack 2 mod made by Crazy Ivan made in 2015. The readme sounds promising and for me it doesn´t look like drastic changes were made which could limit the compatibility with stock missions. Did anyone get its hands on this mod and can give some feedback?


Same goes for Sub Command, got a SCX2C install with some unique campaigns I still want to play and there is a RA patch for SCX2C at the same location for that one with a promising readme. Can anybody report if its worth an install?

HK688 Update Pack 2 should works fine. Previous version wasn't compatibile with naval combat pack version

H/K is little different than SC or DW but still very good for playing. Missions in campaign are very immersive.

Regarding Sub Command I´ve had following problem:


When using my old EA Sub Command disc I was able to install SCX/SCU and with the dll fix to run it with win 10 but suffered from annoying mouse trails.


One day I got Sub Command from Steam for a cheap price and it runs without any fixes needed and without mouse trails on interfaces. The big problem though is that SCX/SCU doesn´t recognize the Steam Version as 1.07 and tells me I won´t hear voices with the playable subs.


Is there a way to get the steam version running with full SCX/SCU including voices, somebody mentioned its possible with the original batch files but I don´t know where they can be downloaded.

SC from Steam & Naval pack is probably 1.08 and SCU/DWX is not compatibile.

edit:

Hmm i don't remember exactly what version is needed for SCU/DWX - probably 1.07 but im not sure for 100%
I will check it soon, maybe tomorrow.

Yes the SCX/SCU patching utility that modifies the sound files requires 1.07. However you can still install it on the Steam Version but won´t have crew voices when using new playable subs.


I think having no voices is still better than the ugly mouse trails you will get with the CD release of SC but if somebody finds an ultimate solution, please let me know.
