Hi, this is my first post in this forum. I didn´t know what is GWX untill I did read here. Know I use GWX and my Silent Hunter 3 is completely different (I have sustituted GWX Enviroment and subs with the old ones because it seems more realistic to me).

Lets go with my adventure. I am near Narvik, it is April 13th 1940 and Operation Weserünbung is going on. I am in a possition where I intercept all the ships, convoys and task forces that go to Narvik.

Last night I spotted what looked like the third task force going to Narvik. There was a huge battleship (according to GWX manual it should be the Warsipite). I saw in my periscope a Nelson Battleship... As soon as it was in range I shot him 3 torps, 3 of them hit and feew minutes later the battleship began to list on its right. http://img245.imageshack.us/my.php?image=11700072yf3.jpg

Quickly I dive as fast as I could to 170m ahead flank and when I was at 170m I toggle silence and set the engines to minimun speed. 9 Destroyers were starting the hunting, so I thought I wouldn´t survive.http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=49984185qn0.jpg

After some endless minutes, depth charges began to explode, it turned a living hell for me and my crew, I dont know how many depth charges but you can imagine 9 destroyers continuosly throwing them during about 15 minutes.http://img340.imageshack.us/my.php?image=58921488tu5.jpg

After this hell, destroyers suddenly turn on their course to Narvik, and smoothly I get back to 1km from Nelson, a good shooting distance. I shot him a fourth torpedo and after a huge and spectacular explosion it quickly sunk. 36000Tn.

With no more torpedoes left I went back to Wilhelmshaven.

I'm after some help with GWX can you tell me how to install it?
I have down loaded the .bin and ,exe files but I'm not sure what to do with them ?
do I have to mount the .bin files to disc?

Download all files in the same folder, then double-click on the .exe file. Simply follow the instructions...

Make sure to follow the instructions below regarding the proper setup.

+++++++++++++++++++++++
Directly taken from the GWX readme file:

### IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTINUING ###

The Grey Wolves Expansion (GWX) must be installed over a CLEAN, UNMODIFIED installation of Silent Hunter III patched to Version 1.4b. As this is a requirement for GWX to work, the installer will not allow installation to any other location.

- DISABLE all activated modifications if you use the "Jonesoft Generic Mod Enabler" (JSGME). You cannot use JSGME to install GWX, but you can use JSGME to activate other modifications after GWX is installed.

- REMOVE any installed SH3 Commander files (if you use "SH3 Commander") by pressing the "Rollback SH3" button from within SH3 Commander.

### IF YOU ENCOUNTER PROBLEMS ... ###

Please post the details at Subsim (http://www.subsim.com/radioroom/index.php), and include the contents of "GWXInstErr.log" if it exists on your Desktop.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hope this helps!
