This is a guide to help prevent crashes after the intro scene in Windows 10.

Compatibility Mode

The way it worked for me is making it launch in compatibility mode.

  • Step #1 – Go to Games Library and right click on Silent Hunter 4
  • Step #2 – Click ‘Properties’ 
  • Step #3 – Click the tab that says ‘Local Files’ and then click the button that says ‘Browse Local Files’
  • Step #4 – Find the exe named ‘sh4.exe’ or ‘sh4’ depending on if file extensions is enabled.
  • Step #5 – Right click the exe and then click ‘Porperies’ in the context menu
  • Step #6 – On the top of the window, there should be a tab labeled ‘Compatibility’, Click It
  • Step #7 – Under the ‘Compatibility Mode’ section, check the box that says ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for.’ 
  • Step #8 – Click the dropdown menu directly below it then click Windows Vista. Not The Service Packs!
  • Step #9 – Click ‘Apply’ and then ‘Ok’
  • Step #10 – Launch game through steam to see if it works.
