back in the days before SH3 there was sh2 (we played sh3 first so 2 was somewhat disapointing.

With SH2 you could conect to another game (think it was called destroyer command) and play together, one in the sub one in the ship.

We had some fun lans, 3 or destroyers against 1 sub.

My (probably obvious question) does any body know if there are any addons or other games that will link to sh3 or even sh4 in the same way?

Nope, no such luck. I played SH2 a loong time ago too, but I don't recall any support for connection with destroyer command? The manual said it could be done, but no such luck for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Over at subsim they put out a patch called Project Messerwtzer (sp?) that added stable multiplayer and it was quite popular at the time.

I also played both SH2 and Destroyer Command. As joeap says, the Messerwhazzits patch (I can't spell it either) does successfully link the two games.

If we can't get a full surface naval game out of Ubisoft, I would at least like to see an escort patch done to link up with SH3.

i dont recall us using any patches, I am pretty sure we did it out of the box, and there was an option when setting up a lan game to allow users from the "other game" .

I was hoping there was somethign similair for sh3 or sh4 but alas it isnt looking good

SH4 does have a convoy commander in LAN mode. I've been dying to try this out and have two machines. But the one has a card (ATI 9200SE) which can't handle the game at all, so, bummer.

Co-op mode works without having anyone hooked up (thereby serving again as a random mission generator, yay) but I can't get adversial mode to work.

Oh yea out of the box worked really poorly if at all, hence the Projekt Messerwetzer (http://www.subsim.com/ssr/p_messerwetzer.htm) patch ... I hope someday for an all-encompassing naval sim where I could play s-boots in the Black Sea...to RN subs in the Med...to Admiral Oldendorff's 7th fleet BBs at Surigao strait. Sigh. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
