Default [TEC] How to use TDWs Option Editor

With the UI mod uninstalled in JSGME, right click and explore

go here and find the editor:- C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5\MODS\NewUIs_TDC_7_2_1_ByTheDarkWraith\data\Appli cations\OptionsFileEditorViewer

Run the app
Next you need to set the path to the menu txt file

Point the app to the menu.txt file that is within the UI mod

Next is to set your SH5 install path

Here you can see that both paths have now been set

Next we need to open the option file

Point it to the
C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5\MODS\NewUIs_TDC_7_2_1_ByTheDarkWraith\data\Scrip ts\Menu

Now the app will show you a list of options by tabs along the top.
Here I have selected the SOAN tab
Turn a feature on by double clicking the false to change it to true

When you are finished - close the app and it will save your setting (next time you use it the paths will be preset.

Now install the UI mod with JSGME

Ifo about hotkeys from Mike

Update: Got it now.
If you open up a hotkey window enough times, and it has options of handled, Shift required, Ctrl required, or Alt required, you must double click the word hotkey for the window below to show up.
If you open up a hotkey window (example SOAN or item notes) and only has the option of true or false, then you doubleclick the true or false option.
