Hi guy's.

just a few question’s if you don't mind?

i have had SH3 for some years now, i like it. i did get SH4 and did not like that so much.. SH5? no, and that’s for another time.

anyway, if there are still players online for SH3 i'll give it a go online myself.

what i need to know is do i need any mods, and where do i find the right ones? also how do i get around the windows 7 DRM thingy…. incompatibility issue?

thanks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There's no DRM like SH5. Starforce is a pain, but that's another story.

As for online games, no, there is almost nobody around anymore. As well, everyone uses different mods. And you must have EXACTLY the same mods in order to play with someone.

Sad but true... Online gaming was fun while it lasted

That's a shame, i wanted to give it a go.... looks like SH5 is a must for online, but i don't like the game play, i don’t like the graphics. SH3 looks far more real, the water in SH5 and 4 looks like i rendered it and why does every surface glow? its looks horrible and its not realistic... and the controls in 5 are cumbersome. 5's DRM puts me right off, what if i spent 3 hours sinking ships and am on some sort of role when my internet burps? no... i don't like it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

I can say that sh3 patched to 1.4b is still being played on-line, when you log on you can't always see a server, but if you set one up (and are actaully able to host) people will join your game.
If people don't join your game then it might be somthing to do with firewalls etc.
A game on the server list without a ping can't be joined. (problem is, you can't see when you set a server up if you have a ping or not, if no players join after a few minutes, I would think you can't host without port forwarding, and you will need a static IP for that to work properly).
