There is that option (I can't remember exactly what it's called or how you do it) where you can tell XP to behave like Windows 98.

I'm sure some of the PC guru's here in the forum can enlighten us. I'd like to know too actually, as I used to love playing Janes' 'Fleet Command'....<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Yeah, I used to play SH2 with XP.

RJ, I think you might be refering to the compatibility mode function where you run the program in another OS mode such as Windows 98 or 2000/ME

It did work and I briefly played SH2 in this fashion, but alas it really looked it's age and after spending time playing SH3 I had to get rid of it. Ebay has a few of them for sale.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Got a problem with SH3? Then check out the Community Manual (http://www.communitymanuals.com/shiii/index.php?title=Main_Page) for tips and info on Silent Hunter III

Open your SH2 folder and go to "Shell"

Right click on "SH2.exe" and choose the "Compatibility" option on the right, then use the drop-window to set the exe to be compatible with Win98SE/Win2000

Repeat procedure for Shell.exe, and then for the file Sim.exe that you will find in SH2/Sim folder<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I loved SHII, it began my obsession with U-boats. I am hoping that SHV, will be WWI U-boats though, and they will include a walk through, and the Australian sub AE2, that broke through the Dardenelles and sank the Turkish flag ship in it's harbour, along with two other destroyers<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

If you go over to subsim.com, look under the SHII Downloads. There you will find a file which makes SHII and XP compatable. I use it with no probs. They also have a pretty big selection of mods for SHII as well.

Agree... the good point of SHII was its hig modability. Loved to play the italian campaing in the Mediterranean.

Being moderately modded, it was a nice game. Heavily modded, it had good potential. Now that my graphic card get out of work, and had to get the old one, is a good oportunity to give this game a new try. Anyway... still prefering the original one! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
