Destroyers are your friends and will not hurt you. Notice the way they rush to greet you when they know that you're around. They know that you have beer.

Depth charges are harmless. They are just a pyrotechnic show to say, "Thanks for the beer!".

If you sink 120,000 tons on 2 missions in a row the Kreigsmarine sends frauleins to your crew. (50% realism or better).

If you perform 4 missions in a row on 20% realism setting an uber pulse is sent to your videocard and burns it out.

At 1024 time compression, hitting the letter D unleashes an Easter Egg.

You may have noticed that your exec always looks the same in any era or boat. He is part of a cloning program by the Nazis.

If DD's are chasing you, hold a straight course at 50 meters of depth and you will ALWAYS escape.

Just trying to help,

Always remember to surface to say hello and Goodbye to old uncle DD who can't really see clearly under water.

When the flying birds like Aunt Hurricanes drop the eggs, always grab it and ensure it doesn't break in your grasps.

When catching those eggs keep spinning that little propellor in the front, it helps with te energy storage that you can use later..

- Use your SONAR ping button constantly when you are near an escorted convoy, this always draws the escorts away from the convoy http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

- Don't man your flak gun during an air attack, instead man your deck gun and engage the aircraft with that 88mm (or 105mm in the IX). One hit from that shell and the Aircraft is going dooooowwwwnnn! (you have to superelevate the deck gun manually. It works! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif)

LoCH, there is a CH in it! Get it right people! Loch Ewe!! As for the help, blow ballast while driving under a C3. Also, if a DD does not feel like greeting you, press C, works really well in shallow areas. DO NOT press C in deep water, it will make your hull rupture. Have fun http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
