Well, I'm up and running with SHIV. I ended up having to install DX 9.0c to get SHIV to run but once that was done, it ran fine. As I have a Gateway FPD2185W LCD monitor with a native resolution of 1680x1050, that is what I set the screen resolution at. I'm confused, I've read about everyone complaining that the ingame resolution is stuck on 1024x768 yet the screenies I took came out at 1680x1050. I probably just don't understand what it is they are talking about.

Made my first patrol out of Manila in the Philippines. Choose a Sargo class sub, and went with Frederick Warder as my commander (my alias in the PTC Campaign). I was ordered to patrol the Luzon Straits. On my way north out of Manila, I encountered my first merchant which took three bow shots and then was finished off with the deckgun. About 12 hours and a little farther north I ran into a Japanese Task Force composed of two Kongo class BBs and three heavy cruisers (one Takao and two Mogami)escorted by about 7 DDs. I managed to get one of the Kongos with four torpedoes from the bow tubes and headed deep. With a little luck I passed underneath the damaged Kongo and while all the rest of the task force was looking for me on the other side where I had just came from, I came back up to periscope depth and fired my two remaining stern tubes from a range of 1300 hundreds yds. One hit and that was all she wrote for the Kongo BB. I then continued my north into the Luzon Straits where I sunk a small merchant with the deckgun. I also had one of those famous SHIII week and a half rain storms. Just after that the game froze and I had to exit using CTRL+ALT+Delete. Below are a few of the screenies I took.

Makes me feel like I might sink 2 yamatos and see a 3rd one?
