SH3 must nearly be finished by now. This is an educated guess based on screenshots and videos that have been presented to us.
coastlines, subpens, seagulls, crewmen on decks, etc all there now.

I would guess that the game is for all intent and purpose up and running to very near completion- big time ! It must be just a few minor tweaks to AI and a twinge in the Graphics and sound dept here and there for perfection.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v463/RedTerex/boucyblue.gif

Dont forget that the game was almost completed before we wanted the DC etc.

I wont elaborate further execpt to say that I reckon the Devs have been working well to get it all done (without rushing it) and are just tidying up and smoothing it off with no more major programming.

I would hope to see an earlier than expected or at least January release for it!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v463/RedTerex/optimist-sign.gif

My estimated is that the game won't be ready until February. In-house alpha testing should be wrapping up in the next few weeks. If the demo is released next month it will help act as beta testing until the middle or end of January when it will go gold.

That's if everything goes roughly according to the dev team schedule.

well I think that the Beta testing is already under way, I just have a hunch about it is all.

ps;
I like that painting U-443, nice addition to your sig, any info on who painted it etc?

A German games magazine (PC PowerPlay) has tested a demo (!). the DVD trailer is not online yet, but members of the german forum try to get the copyright. the preview also reported that SH III is in beta stage. however the dynamic campaign and higher realism settings still seem to be in development.

p.s. three missions were included in the demo.

It's good to hear that it's in the beta stage. It sounds like things are going well for a Feb. release date barring that no issues suddenly crop up.

Beta testing is underway yet the best parts (Dynamic Campaign and high realism settings) aren't done?
sounds kind of odd http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

but the devs are smart enough to go back and put in a dynamic campaign, so i guess there is method to their madness http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
or its just really early beta
oh well, roll on Feb! (and maybe a demo sometime soon, it would see http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif)

I was right then, initially ! that'll do, it wont be long now. Once they get to this stage and I mean like any PC game its only a short time before they are retailing them.

Well I think I can add another educated guess and say it wont be any later than Feb for sure.

I'm getting impatient now, its a pity that it will miss Xmas, otherwise Xmas day, forget beers, forget gifts, forget Xmas dinner...I'm going on a war patrol LOL !

In the test video on the DVD from the german magazine PCPowerPlay the tester said that their version has _only_ low realism settings implemented all other settings were completely missed. In that case it couldn't be a beta version! Following the software development process, a beta version has all features already implemented and it must only be tested and possible errors solved.

PowerPlay had a demo but not the beta! However it was said in the article that the game is in beta stage. I guess that know the difference between a demo and the beta.

Unfortunately the game comes in February, just like the examns in the university... I think that there are not going to be good marks this year... :-(

The game will be great, opptimism rules.
Another couple of months max.
And we will be sailing the high seas, ignoring the war, and taking in the graphics of the sea as its splashes over the decks along with a deep blue sky with perhaps the odd seagull crapping on ya conning tower oh yes.

Just give me a sub and a star to sail her by, Doenitz can go get stuffed for the interim period !

i think when we see the different interieurs in screens or maybe the attack and nav scope then that might be the beta.

Looks like he's burning up radio waves with his cell phone. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif He's probably calling the SH3 Devs about the "LIfeboats". http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

It's the only place he can keep it since he has no clothing with pockets.
More of them here: <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Smilies</span> (http://www.clicksmilies.com)
Goto Usersmilies and select Fools House. These are the best.

Thanks Taskforce for keeping up the posting of different 'smilies'. RedTerex got me started a while ago.
