Sounds like people are having problems installing with Steam. Or maybe in general? This is a note for FYI purposes:

I originally purchased SH4 1.4 through Amazon-dot-com. The download from their site version, not the DVD. I used that source for this. I installed a clean new copy of SH4 in the C: folder. I then installed KSD II also in the C: folder, but in it's own folder, a completely separate one from the SH4 folder.

Then I copied S4.exe from the SH4 folder to the KSD II folder. I did not try to copy anything else from one folder to the other - from the SH4 folder to the KSD II folder or visa versa. I also patched KSD II with a 4gb app just to be on the safe side (this is not mentioned in the installation instructions, but something I wanted to do).

I bypassed going though the museum and started a career. It worked fine that way. I had a few problems with crashing, so I set compatibility to Windows 7. It has never crashed again. I assume it should work fine in the C: Program Files (x86) folder, too.

I do not know if a person needs the SH4 Steam version to play multi-player. But this way worked for me for playing solo.

Hope this helps somebody.

Default A nice surprise

On my first patrol. Grid BE 644 on Februrary 11, 1942 in a VIIC. I just came across - a school of dolphins! I am listening to them on sonar.

I wasn't expecting that! Nice touch!

I hate to give away too many spoilers, but this game is packed with interesting surprises.

This morning I did a full reinstall of SH4 and moved the exe file to the Knights folder. The program opens up and when I picked a quick mission sim loads up and than ctd.I tried a campaign starting 9/39 and everything works ok except when the orders start typing out they are in Russian. I then watched the short movie and the load screen started than CTD again. This is Windows 10 but went into exe properties and set for win 7 and ran as administrator.

Guys, excuse me.
I made many mistakes in the game.
I will make a new installer very soon.
The old version needs to be removed, because there are too many fixes. You all so waited for the release that I was in a hurry. I should have checked it out.
