Where can I get the proper colour Bas Boot Emblem? The one in the game is green. The colour from the film is black.

Many thanks.

Edit it! It's a TGA files in data/emblems, and it really doesn't take much to get the colour changed. You could probably even do it in Paintbrush if you convert the TGA into a BMP file (with something like IrfanView)

The emblem colors are correct i believe.
green and red.

the das boot one was prob either to do with ware and tear, but it was known that they used to repaint theyre own emblems to suit themselves at times..

I'm not sure about that. In the movie, at the very end when they're pulling back into port, you hear something about the 3rd Flotilla welcoming its members back. That emblem is for the 9th Flotilla, though, if I am not mistaken, and the color was green for the 9th. They probably liked the emblem but not the color when they did the filming.

Maybe I'm wrong but didn't they have that devil head ensign in Das Boot? Or maybe thats just whats on the mock U-boat now, I think I saw it a Uboat.net.

No, they used the same sawfish icon you've got in your avatar, except it was black instead of green.

Hm, are you SURE it was black? Only my memory tells me it was green.

Here is a screencap of it from the movie.

You decide the color... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Black it is. I just checked my own copy and it was black there too, although perhaps with a slight green tinge. If anyone had spontaneously asked me, i would have answerd green without hesitation.
Funny that.

As far as I can tell, the U-96 emblem was black. 9th Flotilla's emblem was the same (the laughing swordfish), but it was green or blue. U-96 was in 7th Flotilla.
