Default GWX3 Gold Does not stop crashing

So i have over 93 hours in Silent Hunter 3 and i want to use the Grey wolves mod but every time i install it i can only do 1 or 3 patrols sometimes even 0 before it crashes to desktop with no error can anyone help me i have tried reinstalling, restarting my PC launching directly through the game files and yes its always on a fresh install of the the vanilla game. Thank you!

Which folder do you have the game installed in, and also, have you ever heard of the "4gig Patch? It flips a couple of bits in the executable, so that your computer knows that the game can access more than 2 gig of RAM. There is a "new-style" version that uses the Windows dotNet stuff, which CapnScurvy wrote a TEC article about over in the SH4 section of SubSim called "Windows10; Large Address Aware; SH4 Install". The same info (for the most part) applies for any 64-bit Windows system from Vista thru 10, but even 32-bit versions of Windows can be somewhat altered to allow more memory access.

So start with telling us where your game is installed, but also a bit about your computer, and what version and bit-depth of Windows that you have.

btw, "Welcome to SubSim!"

:
Sorry for taking a while to reply i only now got the email saying you did

But to start a bit about my PC i have a
Intel Core i-7 processor @ 2.80Ghz
8GB of Ram
Gtx 1080 TI
and windows 10

I have heard of the 4 gig patch but everytime i ask people about it they always say go ask subsim or they just tell me to install it that last part is not helpful in the slightest so yes i have heard of it but i have no ****ing clue what it is.

I totally gave up on GWX mod. Spent 2 days trying to get it working, reading forums etc. If a mod is that difficult to get working, it's just not worth it.

Weak! You are the only one who could not make it work and dropped his hands, faced with difficulties. It's pretty stable and beautiful gigamod. Although there are newer WAC v5.2 and NYGM2017, but you can not cope with them.
