View Full Version : INGAME SCREENIES

03-21-2007, 05:07 AM
hello folks.. i'm playing the newest sh4 game. and i have to say what an improvement

but i noticed something that i dont like
as soon as u sink a ship and hes sinking and under water you see a fire boult on the water that also creates smoke..
what i like to see changed to it is low fire on the water on several places
becouse one fireball in the water doesnt look verry nice

here are some ingame shots !





*on the next pics dont mind the stripes above its not a bug or error but i forgot to delete the past screenshot*

(scope vieuw)

(free can view)

also dont mind about the instrument panel for some reason it doesnt let me clear that all the time with pressing the numdelete button

(rescue boats)

(rescue boats part II)




well this was my first big taskforse attack
i sank 2 destroyers both with one torp ( for some reasons they were blind when i hitted the aircraftcarrier ( i just outsmarted them http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif )
sank an aircraft carrier and a heavy support frigat or something ( dont remember how its called)
and my men where able to shoot 4 planes out of the sky
after those i had to skip away, battery low almost no co2 and a little damage during aircraft's & torpedo bombers

next time i will be more photogenetic becouse i have to learn a few things about this awesome game (alot basics changed)

hope u like it.. and if you do leave a comment http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

03-21-2007, 06:47 AM

Are all japanese ships painted black?

03-21-2007, 08:20 AM
Thanks for taking the time to post up some smashing screenies.

I hope this will help to lift the game a little into a better light of some of the action that can be had in the Pacific with SH4. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Playing now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

Post Process Filter on, Full scene glare off

I dont like the full scene glare, its way too much bloom and makes your crew......partial translucent for some reason http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Maybe this could be tweaked ?

Hey Celeon, two quick questions. Can you make the bottom menu disappear like you can is SH3? How's the time compression working?

tambor198 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

03-21-2007, 09:48 AM
You press delete on the numpad to make the UI dissapears and the time compression goes to 7206 !

timecompression is with the mouse the time&datebutton located right under in your screen.
use the plus or min icon, much faster is the num+ and num- button
for all the menu to go away in free cam mode is numdelete button but i cant aplie to that all the time.. dont know why

also on realistic settings you can turn them on and off
i have to ask the programmers of sh4 why i cant do this all the time

for any moderator who reads this help me out.. i hate it when i cant lose the equipment when making a damn screenshot
-why is the graphics so buggy?
-when is the dx10 patch for vista released?
-is there a way to fix the resolution? i want to play on 1400x900

03-21-2007, 01:22 PM
not mine, but I found this ineresting pic over at subsim.

Dinsdale: "Submarine is a ship that can go underwater?! Woooooow!"

Again, not my pic. but still funny

You didn't ask me these questions, but...

1. I don't understand what you mean..

2. There is no garuntee of a DX10 patch.

3. As of right now, No. All you get is the upscaled resolution from 1024x768.

03-21-2007, 01:56 PM
how come during the dev diaries we saw awesome characters that looked real with multiple faces and everything....suppose to be hundreds of combinations...

all my crews look the same and they all look like fish coming out of total recall...eyes bulging out of their heads and it looks like some of the heads are being squeezed together....football heads lol

i had an instance were a crew member had no head for 2 or 3 seconds...

03-21-2007, 02:00 PM
Very nice. Can`t wait to play...

what i mean is most of the graphics are squared like the vegitation on the surface of the ocean and calbles troughout the submarine(s)
the graphics look realy ****ty on those small details
overal the game looks nice but those tiny things make the game a not 100% looking game
still 95% though

alot of work has been done to make this game a nice one to submarine fans

03-21-2007, 04:40 PM
I'm not impressed by those screenshots. Well, not the actual photos themselves, but that they convey the visuals of this game as looking like a cartoon or comic book. Is this typical of what others are seeing?

I was told that effect is post processing to make it cinematic. They also said it could turn off, I'm not a big fan of it either.

03-21-2007, 06:55 PM
i have some that i'll post with it on and with it off ..i think it looks better with it off imho .i do like the damage model..i have a few of that ..

03-21-2007, 07:16 PM
Glad to hear that. If you are going to make that a part of the game, it's nice that you can turn it off. Reminds me of the farce that was Combat Flight Simulator 2, with its cheesey comic book storyline interface.

03-21-2007, 07:34 PM
how do you rearm your torpedos after you are empty? When I pull up to my home base it says refit and it refuels my sub but does not rearm me.

03-21-2007, 08:19 PM
TC goes to 8000x something or another; very useful.

I confirm this. Actually, TC goes a little above 8000X

Of course this is modable as well and can probably be adjusted to 16000X since 8000X is still a little slow for those long boring transits across an empty Pacific ocean. All the action takes place from Midway onwards to Japan.

03-22-2007, 07:23 AM
hahaah well done celeon999 todd also missed the fedex van :P the poor bastard..

anyway I'll make some new screens with the photo options off

03-22-2007, 07:37 AM

Dont worry RJ, you will be better off when you get the game along with the release of patch 1.1

The bugs are annoying.

The destroyers which were guarding that convoy were completely dumb and blind and completely unable to find me.

I was able to destroy almost the entire convoy with the destroyers ASDICing right next to my sub that had a full extended periscope.

They just could'nt see or hear me. Rediculous http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

03-22-2007, 09:03 AM

anyway here are some pics about a dying aircraftcarrier

P.S. caleon999 can u give me your graphic sttings in sh4? i tried alot of stuff but this looks like nothing compared to you
dont tell me its my graphics-card i have the latest 8800gtx :P

03-22-2007, 02:21 PM
Really ?

Nothing special , just deactivated "full scene glare" and "post process filters"

All others settings activated and set to maximum.

The process filters just add "visual noise" to the screen to create a film material look.

The "full scene glare" looks nice but has wayyyyy too much bloom. It looks like the captain is on an constant LSD trip at the coming down phase. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

So i switched that off.

Resolution is 1024x768

I have an Radeon X850-XT

Ah yes and i use the ingame screenshot feature. Control + F11
