Just a few notes Peter...

Quote:
You must accept the STEAM conversion when it appears as this will patch the SH5.exe and all 9 patches will be installed.
The SH5.exe retains the correct number of kilobytes of 4458 where as the Uplay download SH5.exe is 4461.
Steam converter is not really necessary for DVD users although it wont brake anything even if accepted...

Also , I can see that in your tutorial uplay is in online mod, which is not really smart these days. You are literally asking from ubisoft to screw up your sh5.exe by launching the game trough the "update" button. Offline mod and disabled automatic game updates are a must IMO...

Default KSD online lists

A question:

I updated with TWoS 2.2.16 Update (latest version) over my TWoS 2.2.16 full version.

Now, KSD can run in online mode. All well and working.

But...I can´t see my name in any of the lists, except in the Aces list. Is it a normal behaviour or the Kriegsmarine ignores this magnificent Kaleun? My rating is 7090 but this number is missed, and other two users are up and below my rating, but nothing about me

Many thanks and happy weekend!

Fitzcarraldo

Hi Vecko
The previous DVD install without using the STEAM converter I got an error message when installing the GFP and only 8 patches installed.
This time I used the STEAM converter and no error message

I do mention about going offline and there is a separate tutorial link at the bottom, but I will make it more prominent.
I will check out the disabled game updates option.
Peter

Login: Fitzcarraldo.

My name in SH5: Fernando De Cicco . As put in the campaign start and in the KSD logbook.

Boats assigned: U-47 (complete HT with perfect automatic campaign transfer on the correct date), VIIB, and now U-69, VIIC, departed from Kiel. I change the boat number with OFEV (then U-47, now U-69). Used silentotto only for bypass the first chapter. I went in this war directly to HT.

Thanks!

Fitzcarraldo.

I've removed your old profile, you were using the same name back then and that is a problem for KSD. Try now...

That's strange because other people didn't have such problems with DVD version, including myself. Could you please test that part again?

I have two questions:


1. I use campaign progress workaround. In chapter Coastal Waters i was super-lucky and i spotted and sunk three Queen Elizabeth class battleships - HMS Barham, HMS QE, HMS Malaya. The question is: Will I spot them in chapter Happy Times if i had to use Campaign Progress Workaround? Or it is saved that these ships are sunk, even if i had started HappyTimes not in "normal way"?


2. Can i get U-boot VIIC slightly faster, not 25.02.1941, but for example in October 1940, by changing availability dates in Flotillas.upc file? I am bored of my VIIB :P

Hi Vecko
I will uninstall and go through the whole sequence again and let you know how I get on.

I have tested and you are correct the STEAM app can be declined.


I did come across one problem though.
If after installing TWoS and starting the game offline using my existing saved games I saw this.


This is because you have to be online so the game can be updated.


After exiting the game you can now make the change to go offline and you see this screen.


Peter

Hello guys

The solution I have is simple
Simply in the correction patches there is an option called "Advance users", you deactivate that option and the simulator will run without connecting to Uplay.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

What ever drive you have your Steam library on. For example My Steam Library is on my E drive where I have all my games installed. So the path to my game is E:\Steam Library\Steam\SteamApps\common\Silent Hunter5\Sh5.exe

When you run the TWoS installer let it do the Steam conversion. Follow the instructions for the install. After the install launch Sh5 from either the SH5.exe or create a desktop shortcut to sh5.exe and use it to launch your game. It will still launch the Uplay thing but it should not launch steam at all.
