Misconduct, as this thread seems to be as good as any other to go off topic:
Is silent hunter IV now what SH III was after a couple of modders went over it big time?
SH III was my favourite game for a long time but not in the stock version but with the Grey Wolves Mod with
about every part of the game changed for realism. It was a sensational piece of work.
Is something like GW now existing for SHIV? (heard that SHV was/is crap so I don´t even bother about buying that one)
Silent Hunter IV is much improved over SH 3, the mods have in fact made SHIV pretty decent (there are however some issues still) like later in the war entire convoys get jammed up in Japan. There isn't GW For SH4 yet, I still play SH3 in tournaments with GW and only GW. Some of the big mods are Trigger Maru, Real Fleet Boat and Fall of the Rising Sun, all which do incredible job at making it historically accurate.
I would gamble on SH4 if you can get it cheap, however I would stay away from SH5, its a total piece of crap.
I believe there are 3 active SH4 tournaments, with the 3 mods, Sh3 only has two active both are GW's with 100% realism and other is 50%
Thanks, this sounds really good. I will try it out. Should I be aware of any known issues with W7?
Not sure about W7 issues, I have had none myself, I have Vista and W7 and both act retarded at times, but I can't point to anything directly other then the game usually crashes once in a while. Happens in AE also, but I can't really say its from anything indirectly.
