Online play for SH IV never worked "properly" from the git go. Most likely never will.

Proman...From reports by a whole lot of people...Stay away from SH5...It's a pile of dung...

04-28-2010, 08:21 PM
LOL OK Nohunt ill stay away .. but one question
Isnt it supposed to be better??

04-28-2010, 09:17 PM
In theory, yes it should be better. The biggest complaint is that it features a new type of copy protection that requires a constant internet connection. That doesnt sound too bad, but ALOT of people are having problems with it. Your internet connection is fine but the game thinks its gone a stops playing!!?? It also has TONS of bugs and WTF? features. If you've played SH3 or SH4 you will find features missing or broken that were fine before.

The consensus is to wait a few more months for patching. Check the SH5 forums if you want to read some horror stories. And just an FYI. ALL Ubisoft games from here on out are supposed to have this copy protection.

There are several groups that play online together, subs and playable ships. You'll find most of them at subsim, but I'll try to find a link later.

SH3 multiplayer is still popular but SH4 has been troublesome right from the time that it was released. For whatever reason there are regular problems with the ubi servers for that particular title and as a result the multiplayer side died before it really got going.

Another warning Proman,

From all I've seen myself, and heard from the forums, Ubi's support for their products is minimal, and they don't like to listen to their customers. Admittedly, this is coming from the "simulator" community trying to talk a company into building more "simulators" in a "shoot-em-up" world, but still.

The generic complaint is:

"I'd gladly pay several times $50 for a true, bug free simulator, but instead I have to pay $50 for an unsupported pile of junk, that then has to be fixed, not by the company that built it, but by the community."

True or not, right or not, that's the big complaint.

Unfortunately, of course, the business reality is that the "real money" is in the $50's from the kids who won't mind the pile of junk because they don't know the difference. It won't matter anyway because they'll tire of it in a week or two and spend another $50 on the "newest and shiniest" game.

Leaves us simmers out in the cold a bit.
