I really screwed up....OK here goes.....

I was on this very forum lurking , trying to find some modification practices, and I stumbled upon a thread about altering config files....

needless to say, I didnt back them up.I wanted the 1943 xvi sub, and thought I would change the dates in config (BASIC) folder......then i tried it, and my game wont start at all!!!!

In a panic, I totally deleted my patrol00 files because I made changes to them concerning renown....thinking it would just start me over at the beginning.

that didnt work either.....

I cant reinstall the game because I don't have administrative privelages....shhhh i work from home

Hopefully someone can send me those files so I can replace them?????

will that work?

I totally love this game, and I want it back!!!
PLEASE help!!!

Give me the specific files you need, an e-mail address and tell me where those files are and I'll give it a go. I am NOT a programmer type or extremely knowledgeable about this stuff, but I know where the folder and files are. I play the GWX mod if that even matters. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

"silent hunter 3">> "data" >> "cfg" >> "basic"

the whole "basic" folder....I really screwed the pooch there!!!

and also there was a patrol config file folder

i remember it was patrols_0

I dont know the specific location of this "patrols_0" folder...i just did a windows search and it showed up.....it's basically the same as the config files....

if I could get that whole folder too I would greatly appreciate it!!!

pblount2@gmail.com is the address,

Gracias! Senor!

Guys whilst I commend helping out other forum members, please don't post personal email addresses openly in the forum - use PM's if you want to exchange that kind of detail http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

gatrinjax - I hope you get it resolved!
