You will have the latest and greatest version, you will be able to use the latest and widest variety of mods, and you will be able to re-install the game (it happens), with minimal hassle. You will save yourself many headaches.

You must be the only guy who downloaded a version 1.4 of the original SH4 from Steam.

Several player's writing here at SubSim have stated their versions from Steam was v1.3. So have quite a few on the Steam Forum as well. Here's one of their threads. You seem to be very fortunate!?

Today the price from Steam for the U-Boat Missions Addon is $9.99 which requires the original SH4 to be bought for another $9.99. Great bargains to be sure.

Want to talk about bargains? iNetVideo sold the same DVD Gold Edition a year ago for under $8.00, $11.00 dollars including shipping. When you snooze, you lose.

Yeah, the sale on Steam didn't seem like it was going to last long. Perhaps Steam has only very recently updated to 1.4. Perhaps those discussions led to complaints and an actual corporate response

You can try set the screen in diff revolution and see. It may OK.

Chu888.......Welcome to SubSim!!

I'm guessing you've read this thread, learning that Axolen's problem has to do with the version of his Steam downloaded game was version 1.3. Unfortunately he has not posted in the last 2 months to tell us if things worked out for him or not.

Although the resolution/aspect ratio can interfere with certain portions of the screen being "cut off" along the edges of the screen, its not likely to have just a small piece of the screen (like the digital readout of the Hull Damage) not to show, while other parts are displayed just fine.

If the resolution/aspect ratio had something to do with it, the entire left side of the screen......showing the individual sub makeup would be missing too:




As an update though, do you have a Steam downloaded version of the game? What does your Main Menu screen show as its version:





Just curious.......wondering if Steam replaced their download of the original Silent Hunter 4 game from version 1.3 to 1.4???

I've been to the Steam web site.....they don't tell you what version of the SH4 game your getting. They have two versions.....the original (which is obviously version 1.3 due to so many complaints players write into this forum about). Or, you can "upgrade" to the U-Boat Missions Addon version1.5, which costs extra, only after buying the original download.

Your buying crap even if it is 5 bucks!! Frustrated players (like Axolen) resort to finally asking why is my game doing this, or why can't my game do that? Simply because Steam sold them nothing but trouble with an inferior version of the game. In my opinion, deliberately forcing a player to upgrade for an extra cost. My verdict still stands....buy a DVD, and forget buying a download.

A download? You got nothing but air in your hand.
At least when you buy dog poop you've got something to hold.
My feelings exactly! I'll never buy any software that I can't hold in my hands (CD-DVD). This electronic downloading idea is nothing but a rip off.
And, no, I will never play SH5.
