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.
