Do you see the Silent Hunter 4 window in the task bar? Does clicking on that get you into the game? Are there maybe two SH4 windows on the Task Bar, with one being an error message? Did Windows do an update on you between loads? When you Saved the game, did you give the Save a new name, or had you over-written a previous Save? After you hit the Save button, (and a 2nd time), did you give the game a few seconds (10-15) to write the file? Had you encountered anything "strange" in the game prior to your Save, such as a ship "light in the skirts", only partially in the "water", or maybe an airplane hanging seemingly mid-air but stationary?

Yes, I do see the window in the taskbar, and clicking it does get me into the game. No, I did not see any error message, it all the sudden just crashed. Plus I deleted my save game files, thinking that would help.

There is only one SH4 in the task bar...it takes me back to the black screen with movable cursor. No idea if there was an update to windows in the background (I hate Windows 10). I did save with a new name...Original game was saved "[CaptainName] P1" and new save was "[CaptainName] P1 Hong Kong" Yes I gave it a few seconds to save (I was pumped up and considered staying up and playing a while longer). I didn't notice anything strange in the ships I saw, and never encountered a plane (I'm determined to play it "right" and submerging at dawn and staying down till night).
