Default GWX ctd after 1941

Hello fellow Kaluens

I have a strange problem with running GWX / H.sie / Stiebler add on / SH3 Commander

It all runs fine and smooth until January 1 1941.

After that date it CTDs no matter what.

The game will load , I can choose my career normally but when I hit START when the loading bar reaches the end boom CTD

If I load the previous save - before 1-1-1941 everything is fine.

Thank you for your time

GWX 3 has some bugs but clear GWX environment has bugs very rare.
What sub? What base? Any ship improvements applied?
Load your save in base only or on sea?
Any other mods (gui etc.). If yes list all here (in jsgme v. 2.2+ select tasks/export activated mods list)

Many mod in your list are potential incompatible with GWX or themselves.
Suspected of CTD:
MFM-Improved
MFM3.2 displacement correction mod
MFM v3.3 Silhouettes by Izgud
Type IXB - Bremen
Aces' Super Turms v6 for GWX
Aces' Repositioned 105 mm Gun on Types 9b and 9c plus New Type 9b Deck Railings

Aces' Super Turms 6 - GWX Type 9b Tube Doors and Anchor Fix
M.E.P v5

LifeBoats&Debris_v4
Wooden_Lifeboats_Mod_1.1 - surely incompatible with previous mod.

You want disable these mods. Load the last good savegame and check if CTD appears. If yes disable all not GWX mods and repeat this step.
If not - swim away for more than 50km from the base and save the game after this unlucky date without any contact and on the surface .
Then exit the game and try to load this savegame. If it loads without errors, the CTD was certainly caused by one or several disabled mods.

To solve this problem, you have to load one or several mods necessary for coherent operation in an order such as your current list of modes.
In this way, you will track the first mod or group that causes your problem.
After tracing the problem, you will either solve it or skip the buggy mods. You must repeat this step until all modifications have been successfully loaded or some of them have been skipped.

Thank you for replying.
I think that the problem is elsewhere. Probably a date based file but which one.
Anyway , I will start searching to find it.
First step : SH3 C date based files

Check only the first step (disable any not GWX mods). If CTD continues to occur if and only then you should start to look for an error in GWX. Baed on my knowledge, the only factor depending on the date is a change in the IXB configuration (upgrade) that you could change in the port before savegame. So there would have to be a bug in GWX. GWX 3.0 errors in this case only occur for type XXI (configuration files has bugs), not type IX. There are probably no other files depending on the date.

Default 1920 x 1080 resolution without altering GWX 3 Gold.

I tried Ahnenerbe WideGui 1920 x 1080, works great but changes the movies, splash screens and other stuff. Is there a way to get "vanilla" GWX 3 Gold mod with 1920 x 1080 resolution? I have looked here and Googled with no luck. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I think you can just copy the files yourself

Default Hi

Just downloaded this mod and looks good. I have a few questions to make sure I am right track.

When I unzipped the total file I got the application to install GWX AND also seven bin files. What do I do with the bins files???

Also, in the JSGME box are a number of files, like"alternative flotillas". I presume I should load these???

Thanks, I only deal with this stuff about 1-2 times a year and I am self conscious about doing this modding things.

Default Answers.

Ignore the .bin files; they are used by the .exe to install GWX 3 Gold.
Before you install any of the listed mods with JSGME, read what they do first!

Hi, I've gotten an error message when trying to install.

"Setup identified the following problem(s) with the selected folder: - Modded files were found..."

It's a clean install from Steam, no mods to my knowledge.

Its a unprecise message. What you must do is select the right folder (SHIII inside "steam"-"steamapps" and all that), and not the automatically marked one, which does not actually exist!

Hope I was clear enough, and good luck!

Thank you! This mod is bloody amazing!

Also, I had the mod files error myself but fixed it just by directing the files to go to the proper directory on my D drive in the Steam common folder. D is where I install all of my games. It's like C for many of you out there.

Thanks again for this mod.
