Had to give up with Silent Hunter 4.....quick story....had everything to make it work apart from Graphics Card....got X1950pro....won't fit onto mobo......can't afford to change rig...so come back to Silent Hunter 3.

So there I was with GWX and started off a complete new career...never visited Scapa Flow thought it would be a good idea.

Timed my run perfectly...crept in at dead of night, then cheated and had a look round with external camera but nothing worth shooting at and started to creep out.

Thought I was doing well...nothing on sonar...surfaced and was running through the islands and then...

BOMBERS...came from nowhere and started to bomb the hell out of me. Dived in 20 metres of water without looking where I was going and therefore not seeing the two sunken ships lying across my path. GOT STUCK.

In full reverse tried to escape to no avail. Then the dreaded Destroyer arrived...let off one from the stern tubes but missed..he then got so close that this happened

If I had a sniper rifle I could have at least stopped him shooting!!

About 10 minutes later managed to release and then got shot to pieces

PS had done a save at Scapa Flow so will try and get out again!!!

This is historically accurate......that particular channel contains German vessels sunk by the British after the end of WW1, as a barrier to future attacks.
Stick to the NorthEast channel (Gunther Prien's route), or exit through the NortWest or Southern routes (but Southern is dangerous).

I had the same problem. I wanted to slowly upgrade my computer so that it could run SH4 and then wait a bit until SH4 comes down in price. unfortunately the graphics card didn't fit either. It was too long. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif
