Hi there,

I love this game, don't get me wrong, it's just gorgeous to look at and the gameplay is virtually limitless but i've just started my first campaign and i can't find any ships or anything to do?

What is my best option to liven up the gameplay?

(And i still can't get the screen resolution mod to work!)

In campaign mode you will need to search for ships by plotting a course in enemy waters and patrolling around and around,eventually you will come across some targets.

The "Western Approaches" as its called is a good area to patrol, this area is between the bottom of Ireland South-South-East and the bottom of Britain South-West where the huge area toward the start of the Irish sea begins. This is actually Top left quadrant of area BF on the map that you should have had with the game.

The campaign mode is truly dynamic and quite realistic in its design. It is not uncommon for a u-boat to be on a patrol and see nothing at all for hours and hours. So...use compressed time during your patrol...when a ship is detected your copmression will automaticlly slow down for you to assess the scenario and for you to set up an angle of approach to attack the ship.

So dont give up, as the game suggests you have to HUNT them out.

And when you come across some DD's dont worry youll have plenty to do http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

First, follow your orders and go for 24 hours to the grid BDU designated for you.

Then, follow the wise advise of RedTerex http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Try to sail at optimum speed, about 8-9 knots in a VII, so you have max range and reasonable speed.

My favorite hunting grounds!
Just cruise on the surface and do this http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif to the destroyers you see. Seriously the convoys have to funnel through here so you can get some great tonnage.

BF 13 is another good spot. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif **Watch out latter in the war because aircraft become numerus.**

Should we tell him the convoy trick??? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
