Silent Hunter 3 is a submarine simulation game that lets you experience the realistic WWII naval action from the perspective of a German U-boat commander. The game features an all-new 3D engine, new crew command features, and a dynamic campaign that adapts to your actions. However, if you want to play the game without having to insert the DVD every time, you will need to download a special archive file that contains the necessary files to run the game without the DVD.
In this article, we will show you how to find and install the archive file that will allow you to play Silent Hunter 3 without DVD. We will also explain how to use a no-CD crack if you prefer that method. Please note that this article is for educational purposes only and we do not condone piracy or illegal downloading of any kind.
Step 1: Download the Archive File
The archive file that you need is called rld-sh14.rar and it contains five data sets (SH3.EXE, MISSIONENGINE.DLL, SIMDATA.DLL, UTILS.DLL & STATEMACHINE.DLL) that are required to run the game without the DVD. You can find this file by doing a web search for \"Silent Hunter 3 Rld Sh14 Rar.rar\" or \"Silent Hunter 3 v1.4b No DVD/Fixed exe\". Do not post links in this forum, everyone should know how to use Google.
Once you have found the file, download it to your computer and extract it using a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip. You should see a folder called rld-sh14 with the five data sets inside.
Step 2: Replace the Original Files
Now that you have the archive file, you need to replace the original files in your Silent Hunter 3 installation folder with the ones from the archive. To do this, follow these steps:
Locate your Silent Hunter 3 installation folder. It is usually in C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\Silent Hunter 3 or C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Ubisoft\\SilentHunterIII.
Make a backup copy of your original SH3.EXE file and any other files that you want to keep. You can do this by copying and pasting them to another folder or renaming them with a different extension.
Copy and paste the five data sets from the rld-sh14 folder into your Silent Hunter 3 installation folder. Overwrite any existing files when prompted.
Step 3: Enjoy Playing Silent Hunter 3 Without DVD
Congratulations! You have successfully installed the archive file that will allow you to play Silent Hunter 3 without DVD. You can now launch the game from your desktop shortcut or Steam library and enjoy the immersive submarine simulation without having to insert the DVD every time.
