Hi guys just got back Shame about it being 1024x768 but it still looked lovely. cant wait now for the real thinghttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Some observations
I thought the Ships sank a bit quick but this could have been some settings that we had on Need more time to tinker with those as I am sure you can appreciate I wanted to Dive straight in!!

The Dynamic campaign looks great German National anthem plays when you leave port and My first patrol was to Scapa Flow in a Type II I think I ran to fast because by the time I got there I had no fuel left http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I love the way when you rig for silent running all your crew whisper.

Damage seems to be modeled quite well on your U Boat but did not notice my engines getting damaged over long runs at Full Speed prehaps some one else did?

Any questions I am happy to answear or give opinion

No-one got a copy of the game - they're locked in my drawer as I type this - but everyone got a CD with fun stuff on and a recognition manual. Some even got manuals from the game.

I actually Played on UbiRazz's own PC as the ones they had got in did not work
His spec is something like AMD 2.2 with 1 gig ram and a Nvidia 5700. It takes a while to load but all the graphics looked ok and there was not much lag at all only noticed it when you increase game speed to 1024 or when there were loads and loads of ships.

Please tell us is the attack periscope in game?
Or you sailed with typeIIA only? Even the typeIID has an attack periscope.

yes there is an attack scope and it is cool when you are in the conning tower looking at it as everthing around you moves makes you feel sea sick

No dev team members present and the weather does change day-to-day but I did not leave it on slow time to see the gradual transition sorry wanted to cram as much in as possible
