Backup SH5 folder before install modpack.
Just delete the folder with the modpack and copy backup to it place when you'll want to go back to vanilla.

I then installed the update, again no errors or anything.
Finally I click the sh5.exe within the modded copy of the game and it simply loads the vanilla game and Uplay.


I have tried this twice now from a fresh reinstall, and the same thing happens every time.


No updated splash screen or anything to show the mod is installed.

I read on here someone else had the same issue and was told it was because he had not followed step 1 (which i have done and correctly told the mod where to install).

Can anyone help me get this mod working as it sounds excellent but right now i am just thinking of uninstalling it and going back to SH3!


Thank you for your time and i apologise in advance if this turns out to be some foolish action on my part! (which it probably is!).
SH5 and TWoS do not support multiple game installations. Make a clean SH5 installation , backup your stock game files if you wish, install TWoS a according to installinstructions
and happy hunting!

Default The recognition manual (SOAN) disappears

I suppose SOAN is hiding under the depth bar or goes far to the left because if SOAN above the depth bar, then a tail of SOAN remains (very small).
Helps save/load.
Does anyone know how to return it without save/load?
While me using E to hide SOAN.
Thanks.
ver 2.0.9 with localization.
Now checked on version 2.2.14. This bug has remained.

That's what i figured in the end after multiple tries! Backed up the stock game just in case and am now playing TWoS no problem!


Thanks!

Delete all dragables.TDW files from your main Silent hunter 5 folder and start the game. Check some documentation as well...

Did not help. Files were restored and the behavior remained the same.
The problem is the inconsistency of displaying the opening and closing of the SOAN. We open and close the book with our left hand. The right page should appear on the cover and the left page should appear on the left. It closes in the same way - the left page should disappear and the cover should appear in place of the right page. I rummaged through the scripts and so far I have discovered a logical error here \Silent Hunter 5\data\Scripts\MenuPage\page layout.py.
if Pagelayout_SOAN.Handles.Length == 0:
handle = Pagelayout_SOAN.AddMoveFixedSizeHandle()
handle.SetSnapParent( Pagelayout_SOAN_Tab, MenuItemWrapper.LocationPresets.TopLeft )
size = Pagelayout_SOAN_Tab.Size
handle.Resizability = MenuItemWrapper.ResizabilityTypes.NoAspectRatioCon straint
handle.Resize( size.Width, size.Height, False )

handle2 = Pagelayout_SOAN.AddMoveFixedSizeHandle()
handle2.SetSnapParent( Pagelayout_SOAN_LeftTab, MenuItemWrapper.LocationPresets.TopLeft )
size2 = Pagelayout_SOAN_LeftTab.Size
handle2.Resizability = MenuItemWrapper.ResizabilityTypes.NoAspectRatioCon straint
handle2.Resize( size2.Width, size2.Height, False )

They (Tab and Left_Tab) are probably not handled properly in the future.
After recognizing the ship, it’s convenient to shift the manual to the left to see only reference numbers and work with RAOBF.

Addendum: This does not apply to modpack TWOS; it refers to the implementation of SOAN in a TDW mod.
Hint: In order not to dig deeply, a checkbox for SOAN is created in User Charts next to default - flags. Check on will put SOAN in the starting place.
Hint2: Move the X button to the left page. It will look like Mac.

Selfmade change:
Now I myself have moved the "Close the Book" button to the upper left corner of the Unit group. I tried it and the result suits me. Although crooked, the rec. manual will not disappear. Don't need to do save/load during the patrol mission.

Hi botske

it happens to me too, unfortunately I think there is no solution, tried everything, I also changed the graphics card, now it's 2GB, but nothing has changed, if someone has a solution for this problem it would be wonderful.

P.S. (However, this does not cause problems for the campaign, do not worry you avoid using the camera...and have fun!! )

Remove ; before MenuEditor=Yes in file main.cfg in folder SH5/data/cfg
Run SH5
Run MenuEditor
Goto Menu - Page layout - Page Photos
Check field "Item material(s)" for all entries
Check if all dds files exist?

Hey VDR, can you please take a look at this mod:

[REL] Depth charge water disturbances
https://www.subsim.com/radioroom/sho...85#post2623285

Can you figure out if something like this is really included in IRAI, or if this can somehow be included in the game?
