Thread: First patch fixes and more | Forums

  1. #1
    The first Silent Hunter 5 patch is going to be released very soon and here is a list of the most important fixes:

    - Issues with the crew abilities, dialogues and crew management page
    - Bugs with submarines upgrades, including Flak guns, Hydrophone, Conning Towers, and some U-boat camouflages which were not properly displayed
    - Bugs with the Macro-objectives in the dynamic campaign where some of them cannot be completed
    - Several improvements and fixes were made on the interface like: depth control is properly displayed, keyboard fixes, added feedback when player use an ability, etc
    - Bugs on damage system where submarine didn’t take damage in some conditions
    - Issues with German voices and others texts on other localized versions
    - Several issues with Uplay related to the redeemed items were fixed

    Unfortunately, we are aware of two problems that are still present after the patch. Below you can find their description and a workaround for each one of them:

    Problem 1: Sometimes the player can remain stuck between collision boxes and cannot move anymore

    Workaround: By pressing SHIFT+U player will be repositioned in the command room of the submarine

    Problem 2: In the following situation the player cannot access the UPlay rewards:

    - The player has Windows Vista or Windows 7 installed
    - Uses a standard user account (no admin rights)
    - Silent Hunter 5 is installed in the c:\Program Files\Folder (to prevent this, the game is installed by default in c:\Ubisoft\Silent Hunter5 – not in Program Files)
    - In Windows Vista and Windows 7, the “Program Files” folder has special restrictions, that leads to this problem

    Workaround: Don’t install the game into the “Program Files” directory

    But can the two problems be fixed soon?
    Or are they unfixable?

    Actually, Problem 2 has been known about for quite awhile. Installing either SHIII or SHIV to Program Files is something I've advised people not to do for quite some time on either Vista or Win 7. After I get home with my copy of SH5 tonight I install it directly to my hard drive and not to Program Files folder.

    How about the problem many in the US who ordered the digital download are having? like it NOT being able to be downloaded! Perhaps a patch to the ubi store is in order? would be nice...

    Why didn't they fix this stuff before release.

    The quality at release of Ubi Silent Hunter titles has been absolutely horrible.

    Thank god their are talented people in the Subsim Community to fix their half-finished software.
