what is the problem? this is a fairly simple install.

what's going wrong?

i read the other thread and saw your confusion, so here's my attempt to help.

1. install sh3
2. install 1.4b patch(i think they named it incorrectly cause it shows up as 1.3 during install).
3. create a new folder and call it "sh3-gw1.1a"
4. download 5 files(6 including readme.txt) from this site ftp://gibbage.mine.nu/Silent%20Hunter%20III/Grey%20Wolves/ and put them in the newly created sh3-gw1.1a folder.
5. double-click TGW11a.exe to start installation.

when you start sh3 you should see the intro vid followed by the grey wolves splash screen as the game loads. good luck.

BR kindly posted this thread to help me out, which I'm very grateful to him for. I've been out, watching England lose AGAIN! to Portugal, and I'm about to shoot out again (did you get the pun?) now for the evening to a friends party so please don't think I'm ungrateful or ignoring posts. I just haven't had time, what with bathing the boy etc too.

To Zoinks: I'll look into your advice, thank you very much. I'm really grateful for everyone who is trying to help out ol' thickit here, but I literally have 5 minutes online before we have to go out again. Crikey, Ubi will be charging me soon for the amount of threads and bandwidth my GW troubles have taken up!

Zoinks, would you happen to kow if this download contains the latest update? if so, or not, would you know how to install this once the main install is done and up and running?

I hope it could possibly fix my slow framerate in external view and periscope view?

this is gw's latest release: gw1.1a
1.1 was released and shortly a fix of 1.1a came out. the page i linked is the full 1.1a version so you have the latest to my knowlege.

slow framerates? depends on your system. i am running an amd 3700 with 2 gig of ram and 7800gtx. i can fortunately say i have great fps with my system and i play at 1600x1200. even in rubini's harbors i'm smooth. from my understanding, gw should be more demanding on your system. look at the question 3rd from the bottom:
http://www.users.on.net/~jscones/TGW/FAQ.html (http://www.users.on.net/%7Ejscones/TGW/FAQ.html)

i haven't bothered to check my fps but next time i'm in a port, i'll fire up fraps and see how i'm doing.
