Default New preview and interesting new screens (jeuxvideopc.com 11-02-2010)

Found that site (in french) with a preview (basically it says that the copy they have is full of bugs that need to be addressed to allow enjoy the game), but more interesting are the screens.

They have a lot new screens and some of them showing a bit of crew characteristics, uboat upgrades, map plotting, keyboard funcions, etc. (At least they allow us to open the tubes when we want - there is a key for that)

If the mass of bugs, which does not really honor the game, is being corrected by its shelving, Silent Hunter 5 should delight both avid long as the amateur unlit through achieving the hair and rich content at will.
Oh dear.

SH3: buggy at release, and many bugs were never fixed by Ubisoft.
SH4: buggy at release, and wasn't fully patched until 7 months after release.
SH5: ...?

I see that they keep the vertical sync option as in SH3 (I don't recall if SH4 had it), I hope and pray that SH5 works right with 3D Vision.

Ubi has ignored all my (an others) questions about that...If it works with 3D Vision I'll go and grab it at light speed...when they drop DRM (but that's another topic)

Unless I read wrong, It says manual torpedo setting is in ! Unless they don't know what their talking about.
But it does say target distance,speed, course, etc can be set by the player !

Did you guys really think the Devs would take all that time of glancing at every detail of Laboe's Museum TDC, like we all were, and then not make it into the game?
Have hope, fellas, not all is lost yet.

Why does in such screenshots always the periscope sticks up in the air ? It doesn't make sense, looks weird and everybody knows already that u-boats had these things

What I read in the other reviews I think, is that some reviewer (previewer, sorry ), missed to be able to touch and activate buttons etc directly in the 3D world.

If I read correctly and that goes in the final version (the previews, as Neal said is likely done with old builds), then I am going to miss quite a lot the direct adjustment of wheels and dials of SH3, and specially the TDC and its tic-tic-tic sound that we had in SH3 when adjusting them, sniff...

Well, maybe modders could add back something similar, if it does not come in stock. We will know in march .

Yes everybody knows that U-boats had periscopes, but not everybody can recognise a U-boat without one. That's why the preview shots all show the scopes, so that the average gamer who looks at a screeny goes "aha, that's a sub" and not "wtf, I thought this was a sub game".

At least, it doesn't seem dumbed down. I see lots I like, however, not buying unless online requirement is dropped.

thanks, dude! nice find. finally there are more and more infos...we all waited for so long. but finally also it seems our fears become true...



the status screens look far to modern...the whole interface is extremly arcade like. and the interior with a lazy crew looks very sterile. first things i would change are:

- more crew members in the boat
- dirty textures
- changing the interface
- creating new status screens

Mate I'm sorry but have you ever in your life played an arcade game?
Trust me, they don't look like that.

Does the sea look really, really good in this one, or is it just me?
