I'm having serious problems with SHIII since I installed the 1.3 patch. It took several attempts just to install it.
When I start the game, it stalls when the red loading bar reaches about 65%. I press Ctl-Alt-Del to get to the desktop, and a dialogue box displays this message:
"there is a new (not implemented) page"
Any idea what this means?
I then close the dialogue box and click on SHIII in the taskbar. The main SHIII menu now displays (i.e. the game must have finished loading when I went to the desktop to close the message).
I can load my career saves, but the game now has a severe graphics bug. When I enter the Radio Room, nearly all the contents have disappeared - the radio and sonar stations, the 2 crewmen, the bunk etc. If I switch to the radar, sonar or bunk stations, the problem is the same.

After reading about all the other problems and disappointment people are experiencing since installing the v1.3 patch, I have decided to downgrade to v1.2. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only way to do this is to re-install the game and then apply the v1.2 patch? If this is the case, then how do I ensure I won't lose all my career saves, logs, renown etc? Do I need to make a backup of the 'SH3' folder in 'My Documents' and then restore this folder after the game is re-installed?
