I wants to figure out how to skin mine... Put a big ole JG26 on the side of her... Go hunt in the Channel.
;)

We should try to see if we can connect up v1.2 patch level, user mods not withstanding.

I used to play this Uboot game:



And a bit later this one:



Both were excellent and a lot of fun for their time. How does SH5 with the mods hold against these old timers? 8-)
Btw, is there a thing like online gameplay so we can do Wolfpacks?

I don't know. I've never played one of those but nostalgic Subsims are always great. I liked 688i Hunter Killer quite a lot.

With mods SH5 is an excellent game in my opinion. I'm going to post some videos. There's multiplayer possibilities but I never tried them and don't know how they are. That's what Bubi and me are trying to find out.

Looking forward to those videos, because the top reviews on Steam are very negative :o

I would install SH5 again but theres a good chance I'd destroy any hardware around me as soon as I see the UPlay crap pop up in front of me, that has seriously scared me off :twisted:

Don't be scared... Be informed.
Stand watch at the ready on the docks as THAINE and I clear the way or give it the heave-ho.
It takes ballz of steel to be an Uboot captain.

FWIW, My kid and I have been on UPlay for a while now using the Splinter Cell, Call Of Duty, and Assassins Creed series. And now the SH5 sub sim. No fouls, no errors on 4 different computer systems. I believe the DRMs of old that were hazardous have been long ago been dealt with in the patches and UPlay upgrades.

Cheers

I am informed, that's why I don't want to have anything to do with UPlay again :? I guess I am kind of stubborn when it comes to it, it's a shame that SH5 requires it, aside from that: are there any news on a possible SH6 on the horizon? I am not talking about the free2play SH Online btw.

Sorry to hear that Black, we can use all the Uboot captains as possible to stop the merchies from arming the Isles.

I remember how Star Force (Farce) was killing the Flanker/LoMac communities and they eventually scrapped it for DCS and even found ways to remove SF from LoMac. Yes there was cause for concern there. Again, Ive not run into issues with UPlay other than recently we all had to change our passwords when they told us to, due to some account thefts. I guess if you stick to solo play, you dont need UPlay, just the Steam account if you d/l it from them. I just hope we get MP going.

Anyways, Thaine and I will go through the pain. Our pain, your gain.
:shock:

Going through the mods, found this great picture of the Uboot evolution

I see the gold edition on sale from Amazon download. Will that version work?
