I've just read the patch when I went to d/ld it from ubi..

Note 1: The save games and replays that were made with the original version of Silent Hunter 4 will be incompatible with the new patch version.

I spent an all nighter getting through my 1st mission to japan. 12 ships for 36,500t and 2 planes shot down. A Campaign Star for me, 1 for my crew with 3 service medals as well.

That as a hell of a night and I thought the partol would never end I ran out of torps and AA shells long before the Star with Binoculars turn colour to indicate that I had completed the mission. near 17 days sail to Japan at 1/3 8knt to save fuel , 14 days to complete mission and 17days back.

~And now all for nothing, the patch will kill my saved career.

Usually, these ubi patches do not kill career saves, when you're in base.

Mid patrol is something completely different!

Even if it does kill your save, it's just one mission. Imagine how you'd feel if you'd been playing for a week or a month when the patch came along.

With a patch of this size it would always be best to do a very clean install.
ie; re-install SH4 then install the patch right on top of it straight away.
