I have owned this game for a long time now but I just installed JSGME abd an trying to use it now. I just downloaded Teddy Bear's NYGM mod and it says that it is an active mod under JSGME in my SHIII directory. My problem is that when I start a new campaign I still have to use renown to purchase new parts and upgrades. Granted, I have not completed a patrol yet cause I want to make sure i have done this right. I thought that with Teddy's mod renown was no good and tonnage was the new barometer. If so why is my renown still showing up as 500 on a new campaign??

Any help is greatly appreciated and any tips for the installation of mods is also.
Thanks!!

The mods just replace files in the game folders.

Before you install a mod, examine it and see what files are being changed. compare the matching files in the game folder with an editor.

It's really no big deal, just takes a bit of time.

but how do I know if I have installed the mod correctlly?
It says that it is active under the mod enabler but I am not seeing the part where I dont have to worry about renown anymore???
I thought that if I wanted to upgrade my u-boat it took time...but it is still tellin me that I need renown
