I'm looking for the alarm sound from AOTD:
"Alarm! Alle mann voraus! Schneller, schneller!!"

Anyone know if I can download it somewhere?
Or perhaps there is a sound file that is equally chaotic and cool?

Is there any danger in crash diving, i.e. being heard or spotted by the other ship as a result of the alarm, or by the wake that flank speed may produce?

Its schnelle not schneller, the R sound you hear is a mistake common to those who dont speak german, its like saying Fella but schnelle, the E at the end of any word is pronounced as an A sound. I speak german and thought to pass on some knowledge to you so you know in the future if you decide to take up the language.

I always thought of it as the comparative form of schnell. I.e: Faster! Doesn't that make sense?

@stinkhammer6: That depends on which region you're talking about. Alone here in Austria you can hear at least four or five different versions of "schneller" and I assume there are even more in Germany. Correctly spoken, you would speak out the "er" at the end. "Schnella" is a demotic form.

Stinkhammer6, I'm not sure how well you actually speak German, but before passing on too much more of your wisdom, you should maybe consider checking up on some of the basic pronunciation rules for German. The "er" sound, while not identical to the retroflexive "r" used in American english or the schwa common to RP English, is produced in German differently from one region to another. For Hochdeutsch, the proper pronunciation is to use what is called a reduction vowel, but if you happen to come from Friesland for example, you would likely say "schnella" (this unfortunately is only an approximation since the forum doesn't support IPA transcript) but there is not a Thuringian on the planet that would use that pronunciation. Still, none of this changes the way a word is written!

Koma77 wrote "schneller" That is the correct spelling...period. He is also absolutely right regarding it being the comparative form. I'm not sure why you are attempting to correct the pronunciation of WRITTEN German, but don't, because "schnelle" is the positive form of the adjective "schnell" with the appropriate weak adjective ending. Since you speak German, I'm assuming you know what I mean by this.

I fear youre wrong at this point. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Its really "schneller" .

The word "schnelle" also exists but makes no grammatical sense in this phrase.

I agree that our german language has many complex dialects but for my part i dont know one which uses schnelle.

You are not alone.
But then again Schwitzerdütsche is not entirely a German dialect, but has enough foreign words and words of their own kind to actually become a seperate language. Add to that that they reform German to their own liking, so that "Keine ahnung" becomes "Kreyani" (spelled in English here). Now how is a normal person with 5 years of German in school ever going to understand that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Vielleicht hast Du etwas missverstanden, das letzte Mal Du Deutschland besuchst hast!
Hochdeutsch ist "Hochdeutsch" geschrieben!
Wenn Du jemand geh¶rt hast, der "Holchdeutsch" gesagt hat, war derjenige entweder v¶llig besoffen, oder dann hat er das Wort in Niederdeutsch oder Plattdeutsch gesagt. Wie bekannt für Deutschsprachigen - ich bin übrigens aus D¤nemark - hat die altgermanische Sprache eine lange Entwicklungsgeschichte bis zur heutigen Sprache hinter sich. Im südlichen Sprachraum war Althochdeutsch vorherrschend so etwa bis eine wasserrechten Linie durch Deutschland um Harzen so ungef¤hr! Und im N¶rdlichen Teil Deutschlands gab es eine gegens¤tzliche Variante: Altniederdeutsch. Diese Sprache bis im Mittelalter war ziemlich nah an Altnordisch, die sp¤ter zu den skandinavischen Sprachen entwickelt wurden. Die hochdeutsche Sprache wurde doch immer mehr vorherrschend und langsam ist die niederdeutsche Sprache ausgestorben bis im 18. Jahrhundert. Diese niederdeutsche Sprache ist teilweise noch lebendig, aber schnell sterbend. Noch wird sie von ¤lteren Leute auf den frisischen Inseln an der Nordseeküste gesprochen, und wenn Du nun Wilhemshafen und Bremerhafen erw¤hnt, ist es schon m¶glich, dass Du "Holchdeutsch" dort geh¶rt hast. Das bedeutet aber NICHT dass es korrekt deutsch ist!!! Es ist auch richtig, dass es Variante innerhalb der gesprochenen Sprache in verschiedenen Teilen des deutschsprachigen Raums gibt, aber wenn alles am Ende ist, gibt's nur eine richtige L¶sung der korrekten Schreib- oder Redeweise, und das ist die offizielle in den W¶rterbüchern Duden oder Wahrig angegeben!

Das musst Du also akzeptieren! Und jetzt ist die Diskussion hoffentlich zu Ende!?

(Glaube es doch aber leider nicht: Du scheinst sehr gern das letzte Wort haben zu wollen... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif)

Ok, no offense intended to anyone here, but I think you should all shut up about it. I'm American, and a native English speaker for almost 40 years now. That doesn't mean I always speak it correctly. There's a lot of slang and colloquialisms that slip into everyday language, and that applies to every language (except perhaps French, because the cultural police exist there to prevent anything non-french from influencing the language). So, unless one of you is really a native German who is also a German language teacher, let's just drop it, ok?

Hello, if you are insisting upon credentials, well, I'm von_Alberts girlfriend and I think I fulfill almost all of the criteria asked for. I'm a native German (for 25 years), and have been living in Germany all my life. I'm also studying German, which means that I have a lot of knowledge about German grammar. Also, I am studying Phonetics/ Sprechwissenschaft (studying the sounds of various languages and dialects), so I'm quite familiar with German dialects. I also had to take Sprecherziehung, where you learn and practise all the rules of Hochdeutsch, and learn it by heart if you cannot already speak it flawlessly. Beyond that, I have taught German as a foreign language at an American university and therefore had to become even more familiar with German grammar.
Finally, I also know where Lithuania is without looking at a map.
But even without all these credentials- any German could tell you that it's not Holchdeutsche but Hochdeutsch (hoch meaning standard here). I have never heard of the word Holch. And with the whole schnelle- discussion-> your foes are right, stinkhammer6, and it doesn't have anything to do with different dialects. Schneller and schnelle are two different words and have to be written exactly the way they are written, and what is said in the movie, "Das Boot" (no matter how it's pronounced) is written "Schneller".
I know I'm just repeating everything that has been said before. Still, I decided to do that because I've got a little problem with stinkhammer6's attitude. This is not a pissing contest, and it won't emasculate you to learn something from other people. So you're wrong, take it like a rational adult and not like a pouting little child that doesn't get his way. And even if you might be right about something in the future- you should stuff your arrogant, "I-know-it-all-because-I'm-soooo-sophisticated-and above-all-of-you-little-earthlings" attitude where the sun never shines. Because you never know, somebody might correct you, and then you've not only made a complete idiot of yourself, but also shown that you are a whiny arrogant intellectual wannabe. So, if you will take some advise from an evil German, be a little more humble next time.

This is not even true for the French language. In some country it is still a purist French, but if you are looking at the yearly edition of France's dictionary you will be surprised by the number of English word accepted as French one.

Hi!

1. The word "Holchdeutsche" does not exist. "Hochdeutsche" is right.
Look at this entry in a german dictionary -> http://germazope.uni-trier.de/Projects/WBB/woerterbuecher/dwb/wbgui?lemid=GH10250

2. Both "Schnelle" (adjective) and "Schneller" (verb) exist. But in this context "Schneller" is right, because it is meant as a command.
Look here:
- http://dict.leo.org/?lp=ende&lang=de&searchLoc=0&cmpType=relaxed&relink=on&sectHdr=on&spellToler=std&search=schnelle
- http://dict.leo.org/?lp=ende&lang=de&searchLoc=0&cmpType=relaxed&relink=on&sectHdr=on&spellToler=std&search=schneller

After reading through this thread I find it hard to believe that you Stinky are 33. My guess is you half that age, I also question if you are from where you say you are. Do you actually get something out of agrivating this forum? This is suppost to be a place where people with a common interest can get together a swap info idea and stories to help make this sim more enjoyable. You on the other hand seem only to belittle others and brag about something that doesn't really matter in the REAL world (not talking Beery mod here either) Correcting native German on their grammer is a little obstinate don't you think? Forget that I don't really care what you think at this point, I don't think I'll ever take anything you say with any true respect or hold you on a level of equality; why should anyone here? You can't "come down" to my level Mr. 100k man or anyone elses it would seem. I mean really man, what on Earth are you trying to prove? Somebody simply wanted to know if there was a sound file to replace the stock one with and suddently you are "THE" expert on the German language, ever in the face of German people. Rude? You bet. I've read a lot of your thread replies and I've come to the conclusion that you have nothing of value in this forum; Ohh but you can blow stuff up never less than 100k. Hey thats great, you get to type you initials in the high score board; hurray for Stinky! To me- and I think alot of us Sub sim guys- its not about sinking 50 million tons of ships in a single career, but about playing the role of a U-boat captian and playing it to the bone. 100k in a career, yes, 100k per patrol....no. It seems you just want to be the **** (thats rooster) of the walk. This isn't Super Mario Bros. man its not about high score. There was a time (a brief time) when I thought about aiming for the 100k club, but if that means I have to in some way associate myself with the like of someone like you then no thanks. So enjoy you "game" stinky I'm going back to my sim, and I'll try my hardest not to read anymore of your posts, you have nothing good to say anyway and nothing I want to hear. Now run along, Mom wants your homework done before dinner or no T.V

Go to page one of the forums, scroll down to where it says 200k club, youll see my name as the originator of the thread, then youll see my score, then youll realize Im out of the 100k club and the only one in the room, the catagory, the league. Arrogant, yes, cocky, of course, Im sitting on my velvet throne talking to Hitler himself on my cell phone aboard my VII-B telling him how I like my roast cooked and potato's done. Oh and my realism setting is at 77%, now go stick that in your hat and smoke it.
(Not to offend the others on this thread about this but when one is attacked, one should attack back. It is very possible as you can see to score 200k with the sub Im using, its all discipline, and patience. I knew the haters would come when I posted my score but accepted it. And I expect more hating and accusations. Why is it others come in here and post a reply to a post that no longer is the topic, as if they could revive such a thing. If you have something negative to say to me, send me a message. If you post it in here, you will surely get a reply just as coy as one was sent.)
Now back to being cocky, TOP DOG!!

Stink,
I think it's great that you have reached the 2K mark...Congrtats...And believe me...Somehow, I think your name will not be forgotten.....(lol)
Though I would hesitate to refer to those who have NOT reached this mark, as "seemingly non skilled". There are alot of good skippers out there (Ive seen them in action...non TDC-wise), and alot more variables to consider in this than just hanging out under somewhat friendly skies, in high traffic areas in the spring of 41'....Plinking off weaponless merchants, and escorts/warships that have not yet matured into full fledge sub-hunters.
SH3 is a great game...And one reason FOR that is it's potential realism...That being, It takes a LOT of time out of one's day to play. So everyone chooses to spend his or her valuable time to play the game differently, (hence the greatness of the game) and excel in different aspects of the game in each their OWN way, under thier OWN rules...
Me personally, I'd much rather prefer to hone my skills in manual targeting, hydrophone location, and the practice of overhauling during daylight and attacking at night, and so on.
But sincerely...Congrats on mastering the game under YOUR OWN rules.
And dude.....If you're going to have a "2K" club, you should at least have a more descent badge made up.
