Default Installing TDW's Generic File Patcher Part 1

Last updated 14th November 2019
This Tutorial is for installing TDW's Generic File Patcher (GFP) anywhere on your system as a stand alone application.

If a complete uninstall is done the stand alone GFP application is unaffected by this.
When the re-install is done just reconnect the GFP Patches to the SH5 Folder again.


DO NOT INSTALL THIS STAND ALONE VERSION FOR:
The Wolves of Steel (TWoS)
Sobers Mega Mod

Link to the (GFP).
http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/showthread.php?t=181433

Do Not put the GFP in JSGME or in any Silent Hunter 5 folder.

It is recommended that you backup the 9 original files below that are in your Silent Hunter 5 Main Folder by Copying and Pasting them to a New Folder in the Ubisoft folder. (Picture 2)

Likely looking Main Folder Path. C:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5


1. Cameramanager.act
2. EnvSim.act
3. SimData.dll
4. Kernel.dll
5. Sh5.exe
6. SHCollisions.act
7. SHSim.act
8. SHSound.act
9. SH_NClient.dll

Picture 1 >
Shows original files when backed up in a folder.


Picture 2 > Ubisoft folder behind the main game folder.


Picture 3 > GFP168 folder.


Picture 4 >Download the (GFP) in to the GFP168 Folder.


Picture 5 > Open the Zip File and click on the Extract Tab.


Picture 6 > Click Ok to confirm.


Picture 7 > Shows the 8 files extracted to the GFP168 folder.


Picture 8 > X to exit.


Picture 9 > Start the application by double clicking on the Mickey Mouse icon.


Picture 10 > Select your language and double click on it. Selecting the Language takes you to this next screen.


Picture 11 > Opens to this screen.
Click on File.


Picture 12 > Open.


Picture 13 > Select the file path to your Silent Hunter 5 game folder.


Select Path to CameraManager.act. < First Patch.

Computer.

Drive C:

Ubisoft folder

Picture 14 > Silent Hunter 5 (Highlight folder only DO NOT OPEN).


Click on OK.

Repeat the instructions from 21 to 30 for each of the remaining 8 Patches as they appear.

Select Path to EnvSim.act

Select the Path to kernel.dll.

Select Path to SH5.exe

Select Path to SHCollisions.act

Select Path to SHSim.act

Select Path to SHSound.act

Select Path to SH_NClient.dll

Set Path to SimData.dll

There are 43 actions to install all Patches you should then see all 9 Patcher Files.


Picture 15 > Shows all 9 patches correctly installed.


If you do not see 9 patches then you have not installed to the right path.
Follow the instructions in Picture 16,

Picture 16 > Open the Generic Patcher CFG file.
Look for the patch with the wrong path and change it manually to the same path as the others.
Exit and Save.


Picture 17 > Go to File and open.


Picture 18 > Shows Patches are installed disabled.


Patches can be opened by Double clicking with your mouse.

Closes the (GFP) and completes the installation.

Default TDW's Option File Editor Viewer Installing It Correctly

Last updated 1st December 2018
This Tutorial is for installing TDW's Options File Editor Viewer (OFEV) anywhere on your system as a stand alone application only.

If a complete uninstall is done the stand alone the OFEV application is unaffected by this.
When the re-install is done just follow the instructions from Picture 10 to Picture 14.


The OFEV is included in TDW's NewUI's 7-4-2 and 7-5-0 base mods.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS STAND ALONE VERSION FOR:
The Wolves of Steel (TWoS)
Sobers Mega Mod

Download Link to > TDW’s Options File Editor Viewer Version_v_1_0_32_0

The Basic way to make changes to the OFEV.
1. Disable the version of TDW’s NewUIs_TDC_7_4_2 or 7_5_0 ByTheDarkWraith Main Mod that you are using from JSGME.

1.1. Disable all TWOS mods in JSGME.

2. Make a New Folder and give it a name and place it in a convenient place that will be easier to find.

3. For the purpose of this Tutorial I will call the New Folder OFEV32.

4. Download the (OFEV) in to the OFEV32 Folder. (Picture 1)

5. Open the Zip File.

TDW’s NewUi_ 7_5_0_TheDarkWraith_ version 18 Installing It Correctly

Default Deck Gun Crew Testing Using TDW's NewUI

Last updated 16th June 2017

No “Binoculars” were used in these tests.

Icons are to be read from the right to left for numbering purposes.

1st Test using “Dieter Epp” Officer on the bridge

1. Give the order to officer on the bridge to > “M.T.D.G. (This will bring the Gun Crew on to the Deck)


2. Watch Officer > Icon 1

3. Battle Stations > Icon 5

4. Crew on Deck > Icon 10

5. M.T.D.G. > Icon 4 (This will already be yellowed)

6. Deck Gun > Icon 8

7. F.A.W. > Icon 9

8. Hold Fire > Icon 8

9. Battle Stations > Icon 5 (Will reposition the Deck Gun properly)

10. Give the order to officer on the bridge to > Secure The Deck Gun.

Note 1: The “Battle Station” icon is essential before and after.

Note 2: Before the Gun automatically fires there is a slight time delay
which can be explained as “Time to receive the order to fire”.

Note 3: Do not use F7 Battle Stations. Battle Stations must be from the “Watch Officer”



2nd Test only using the icons from the “Watch Officer”

1. Watch Officer > Icon 1

2. Battle Stations > Icon 5

3. Crew On Deck > Icon 10

4. M.T,D.G. > Icon 4

5. Deck Gun > Icon 8

6. F.A.W. > Icon 9

7. Hold Fire > Icon 8

8. Battle Stations > Icon 5 (This will secure the Deck Gun in the proper position)

Notes 1 – 2 – 3 all apply to test 2

Note 4: There is no way to remove the “Deck Gun Crew” from the “Deck Gun”

If the officer on the bridge is given the order to “M.T.D.G. and then the order “S.T.D.G. The “Deck Gun” will not be positioned correctly.

The “Deck Gun Crew” will normally fire at the nearest target. When this is destroyed they will automatically reposition the “Deck Gun” and start firing at the next nearest target. The “binoculars can be locked on to select the target of your choice using the above instructions. It is not necessary for the “Binoculars to be looking at the target once firing has commenced.

Default How To Fire The Deck Gun Manually Using TDW'S NewUI

Last updated 31st December 2014

Instructions > How To Fire The Deck Gun Manually.

“Main Menu” select “Options”

Selecting “Game Play Settings” will change the way the “Deck Gun” operates.

No Deck Gun Projectile Path

When this Box is Ticked.

1. No Green Gun Sight.


2. No Shell will be seen on the TAI Map

No Deck Gun Projectile Path

Box Not Ticked

1. Green Gun Sight will be the first Gun Sight showing.


2. Your TAI Map will show where your Shells are falling.

It is essential that the “Battle Station” order is given by the Watch Officer Icon 1.

If this is not done then the “Deck Gun Crew” will not place the “Deck Gun” in the correct position after leaving it.

(Before) You give the orders then either “Walk” or “Teleport” to the “Deck Gun”.

1. Watch Officer > Icon 1


2. Battle Stations > Icon 5


3. Crew On Deck > Icon 10


4. M.T.D.G. > Icon 4

(Or After) You now either “Walk” or “Teleport” to the “Deck Gun”

Then give the above orders.

When you get to the “Deck Gun” you will see a “Green Gun Sight”. (Depending on your “Game Play Settings).

To “Traverse” the gun and “Elevate” it is all done by moving your mouse.

There is an annoying glitch that causes you to lose your “Deck Gun Crew”. This happens when the U-boat is pitching up and down. You will notice this when you cannot move the “Deck gun” from side to side.

To call the “Deck Gun Crew” back you need to do the following every time this happens.

1. Crew On Deck > Icon 10


2. M.T.D.G. > Icon 4

Leave your “Icons” showing so that you can see them.

Any “Yellowed Icon” is active.



The second way to fire the “Deck Gun.

Click on the “Gun Sight” in the top left corner.

This opens the “Standard Gun Sight”.

Click on the “Gun Sight” again in the top left corner.

This opens up the “High Power Gun Sight

Moving your mouse will move the “Deck Gun” from left to right (Traversing)

Using your mouse wheel will raise and lower the “Deck Gun” (Trajectory)

There are 3 types of “Ammunition” available.

1. A.P. > Armour Piercing.


2. H.E. > High Explosive.


3. A.A. > Anti Aircraft


The amount of “Ammunition” available is shown under each shell.

To select the shell type just click on it with your mouse.

1. Place the “Deck Gun Sight Crosshairs” on the target.


2. Adjust the “Elevation”


3. Press the “Space Bar” to “Fire”

You will see in the “Message Box” “Gun Loading”

If you look at the “Shell” you will see it filling up.

You can keep pressing the “Space Bar” down and still move your mouse.

The next “Shell” will then “Fire” immediately when the “Deck Gun” has loaded.

You will need to learn when to “Fire” so as to take in to account the rise and fall of the u-boat.

I would suggest that you test your “Gun Practicing” by going to “Historical Missions” and selecting “Bullet Spark Test” and select “Start”.

This will give you 2 Merchants to practice your shooting on.

When you have finished “Firing” altogether click on the “Red X” in the “Top Right Corner”

You can either “Walk” or “Teleport” back to the “Bridge”

To finish

1. Watch Officer > Icon 1


2. Battle Stations > Icon 5 (Yellowed)

Using the “Officer on the Bridge” “Dieter Epp” will mess with the “Deck Gun” being placed correctly when you give him the order “Secure The Deck Gun”

Default Replacing Steam With A Dvd

Last updated 25th January 2018

Steam needs "Evaporating" get the Dvd if you can or otherwise consider a download version which will be cheaper.

With a dvd you actually own it and it is easier to re-install.

Before loading the Dvd. Make sure that you leave no trace of Steam on your system.

Use a registry cleaner like "Ccleaner" and restart your system afterwards.

Go to your start button and use search and check again for any left over SH5.

If you find anything delete it and run the registry cleaner again.

If you already have a Uplay account play it safe and set up a new one for your new Silent Hunter 5 installation. This will come up at the end of the installation.


If you want to play the game with the 'German Voices' then choose the 'Custom' install.

After the install go to the following folders.

In the path Ubisoft\Silent Hunter 5\Data\Support\GameUpdater

There is a "GU" exe application that will update your game to v1.2


Tip
If you shade this information and then copy and paste it to your PC Notepad you can then edit it.
