"TWoS roster" =/= "List of all ships and aircraft of ww2" => Can't stop The Work.

Interesting, I have seen this before; but with TWoS you start with a normal VIIC in the March of `43 Chapter? I do.
I didn´t find any clue to one of my biggest questions: What stat and which amount of it is required to recieve the final type VIIC41?

I recieved the VIIC/41 in the last campaign chapter, The Final Year. It was fun to use, and I loved it.

Default Black Screen when trying to enter campaign?

Okay so, I have installed SH5 recently and am loving it, I recently decided to install TWoS (today), and have attempted to start a new campaign once in the menu,

I unlocked all campaigns and started one of the campaigns, and while doing it, the screen turned black and it shifted like color or something? (Remained black though), in the background there was sound playing, some of the instrumental music from Das Boot I'm assuming. I didn't move my mouse (hope not) and just stayed there, I tried it without and with running the game on administrator, sadly it still didn't work..

So when I exited the game, it shoved some display driver problem or something of sorts,

P.S I use windows 7, and the game isn't a steam version, I clicked yes to install the DirectC 9.0 or whatever it was. I don't have the updates installed

Another unusual thing, I have some files like FX and stuff in Historical Missions.

Your game needs to be on version 1.2 before you install TWOS. It will not work if your game is not patched to 1.2

How can I identify which version it is?

Installed folder path was Local Disk (C, Programs 86x, Silent Hunter 5 FYI.

[EDIT, VERSION IS 1.2]

By updates I meant the TWoS update thingy

New update, since I tried loading my game save, when TWoS wasnt installed, it said it stopped responding and Ihad to close the game, I don't know whats up with the game/mod. I think it might be my drivers.

I think among the instructions or steps at the beginning of TWoS installation, one the instruction is do not install TWoS mod in the "Prograns Files(x86)" because this folder have write protection

Time to be that annoying nerd again

There seems to be a mixup with Liberator naming, we have "B-24 Liberator" (originally Ubisoft's US Heavy Bomber) which appears to actually be hybrid of Liberator and PB4Y-2 Privateer, and "PB4Y-1 Privateer" which looks like PB4Y-1 Liberator instead:



Privateer probably shouldn't even be in game, as these planes were introduced into service too late for Battle of Atlantic, according to Wikipedia several Atlantic squadrons were issued the type in summer 1945. So, to be even more historically correct, I'd suggest renaming "Privateer" to "PB4Y-1 Liberator". This would leave two "Liberators" in game, one of which doesn't look like anything that ever flew, but Ubisoft's monstrosity can be easily remodeled to look a bit more correct:



...and then perhaps, with some retexturing, used for different B-24 variant than PB4Y-1, like Coastal Command or USAAF ones.

Thank you for bringing this up. I wasn't aware of this at all...
