gear Prepare to change computer & Win7 for SH3 wac5.2




It will be Chinese New Year in a few days. I plan to upgreat the hardware & systems of my computer, WinXP I uesd before, now I wantta change to Win7.

Hardware is OK, All match for the WAC5.0, faster, bigger.

now I worry about:
1; system Win7 Can be compatible with SH3 & Mod or not, should I get some patch or mod for it? or, need to "START/---/run---/cmd ***.dll" stuff like that?(That's what scares me the most.never been touch that,absoluly have no idea )

2;this is my first time to contect Mod Commender & WAC5.0, I need guidance & order of note for JSGME.

for exemple:

* Silent Hunter III original vision with 1.4patch.
* "SH3 Commender"(which one?GWX or WAC?)
* 4GB patch
* Wac5.2 H.sie.v16b patch
* Wac5.0 main patch
* Wac5.2 patch
some ordinary mod like "Wac5.0 full interior" if I need
wac5.0 harbour late war
............................
............................
............................
............................
* WAC5.2 WideScreensGUI 1920x1080 Ahnenerbe(must be at the end)


Damn!it feels like a programmer I am...

I am a rookie. I am trying to read as many posts as possible to learn. these childish questions, but my English is so casual that there are too many posts. So I still want to make it clearly, so as not to waste a lot of time and energy.This will also allow me to share my battle reports and screenshots with you as soon as possible.

thank you!

here are all the WAC5 & GWX3 Mods I downloaded, So what do you think anything else I missing?

Another problem I worry about, is that I have to copy the game folder(already install)from WinXP to Win7/10? or I just install the game at Win7/10?

Hi there JimmyDA Welcome to Subsim

1. Windows 7 Support ends on 14/1/2020
to save yourself some money and heartache go with Windows 10

Link to end of Windows 7 Support

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/wind...rt-information

2. I would just transfer your SH3 Game Folder to a USB stick then transfer it to New Computer not forgetting the SH3 Folder in your Documents with your Career Saves ect
Or just a clean install of SH3 then run the stock game first then install all your Mods then run SH3 see if all goes well if so then copy n paste your SH3 Folder with your career histroy to your new pc's documents folder and you should be ready to rumble where you left your old campaign install.


3. 2020 is going tobe a big Year for computer Tec would be good if you could wait untill Spring May - June Time Ryzen III and Intel CPU'S will probably drop in price due to Ryzen 4000 Launch


4. if you run into any Problems or issues with your New Pc installing running SH3 and Mods Subsim Members will help you get squared away
