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 TheDarkWraithUserOptions.py
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

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.

When closing out it asks for this, does it matter what I put I put in here?

Yeah, I figured that it would do this automatically ( like when doing it the old way ) when I exited, when it did not it threw me for a bit of a loop. So I eventually did what you mentioned and everything was fine.

Your tutorial was spot on I then installed the UI Mod, then the patch after this, worked fine.

The only error I received when using the editor was trying to change
the Journal Name from the default TheDarkWraith. It would not accept the changes in this option.

I am wondering for that one if doing it the old way will do the trick....
