Default Windows 10 Graphics Fix

With one of my computers Silent Hunter runs just fine. BUT...On my new gaming laptop SH5 ran in partial screen with no sound. This is a known problem for games running on Windows 8 or 10.

The solution is to change the SH5.exe properties | Compatibility| tab and check

X__'Disable display scaling on high DPI settings'

X__'Run as administrator'

Also if you have a new computer you can install SH5 on it with your old disk. The key is to log onto Uplay and change network settings to 'Always start Uplay in offline mode'. You can read more about this in my SH5 Quick Start Guide under News Flash. link below

Default Thank You!

I just got a new Windows 10 high end desktop, re-installed SH5 and ran into exactly what you described. Applied the fixes you suggested and I'm up and running...nothing but Outstanding!

Now on to getting my game the way I want it with many of the great mods on this Site. Just a Happy Caption on my soon to be reborn sub...

Thanks again for posting this rather simple fix, just a bit embarrassed I didn't find this on my own...

SH5 should not need a compatibility mode for Windows 10
