im gunna give this 'posting a picture or 6' a go. ive never done this stuff before so i hope the thing works.

i was tracking a sound contact of multiple merchants and had guesstimated its position to be some way off, when the watch officer calls "ship spotted!" a crash dive and a peek later showed a quick steaming clemmson, so i plotted an intercept.

being 1940 i even visualised the ensign, then ran tube 1 from about 1500.

when it impacted the ship erupted into a spectacular fireball the lasted about 2-4min, i went to roving camera and the noise was awesome. the pics are a sample from port-aft-starboard , it sank soon after.

i post this as its just gotta be one of the most spectacular (and scary) sights in this effort.

hope the pics will be below.

You need to copy and paste the IMG one on photobucket into the posting box, or copy and paste the URL from the picture into the Img url thingy on the second from right in the toolbar when posting.

Sounds like you have uploaded the images alright. I don't know what else to advise http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Ha ha ha, reminds me of when I first used photobucket. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Don´t worry, you´ve almost got it. Those links are only one step away from complete victory. Click on the link and you´ll see the photo. Look at the bottom of the photo and you´ll see tow links, both in blue. Click on the left and another window opens. Take the URL from the new window and then ctrl + c.

Now, open your reply in here, in the thread and look at the top bar. You see something that looks like a little photo. Click on it and paste your URL in there. It should look like this after.

As long as we can see the pics, that clemson sure went down with a bang. You using any mods, thats a lot of flames, never seen anything like that before.

Using the stock game, I hit a Clemson that started flaming just like that, but did not sink! He continued just clipping along at 24 knots, leaving a temporary trail of fire in the water as he went. The way it ended up, I couldn't catch up with him to get off another shot.

Bizarre-- I'm guessing that was a bug of some sort

Wow it didn't sink, thats one tough cookie, and it still maintained the same speed, very odd. You were unlucky there mate, all my hits on dds ended up in a sink after on torpedo. Only combat ships that required more were cruisers or carriers and the like.

Rammed a 67a down a
J class's throat once and it didn't sink, it did slither off immediatly tho and gave me no opportunity to finish the job.
