This may be old hat but........

"The Naval Academy menu gives you access to a set of five tutorials. Each tutorial
focuses on a set of aspects of the game:

€ Navigation Course:
- U-boat direction control.
- U-boat speed control.
- U-boat dive controls.

€ Naval Artillery Course:
- Deck gun aiming.
- Deck gun ammo management.

€ Flak Artillery Course:
- Flak gun aiming.

€ Torpedoes Course:
- Periscope use.
- Torpedo tubes management.
- Torpedo attacks.

€ Convoy Attack Course:
- Positioning in submersion.
- Target priority.
- Detection avoidance.

Note that each tutorial is playable as a training or exam session. Each tutorial
played as an exam session will grant you a result of pass or fail, with a quality
evaluation. You can retry a tutorial even after failing it. Only the best results per
tutorial are recorded.

NOTE: Graduating all the tutorials will give you bonus renown when you start
the Career mode!

What is "bonus renown" and what does it do?

03-10-2005, 07:25 PM
I think it is used to purchase upgrades, promote crew members, new uboats, etc
Just guessing....

I remember reading something about it.

The better your exam, the better the chance of getting a command over a better boat in the career mode.

So lets say if you are bad in exams you might get just an old type II boat while there are type XII already available.

Career Renown
As a measure of your performance, after each patrol you will earn €œrenown€ for
achieving objectives and destroying enemy units. Your renown will accumulate as
you play through Career mode. You can use your renown to gain access to better
U-boat types, improved equipment, or new crew members.

NOTE: If your renown reaches negative values, your career may suddenly end!

Switching to a new U-Boat or upgrading the conning tower will cost you renown.
To have access to newer types of U-Boats early on, you will need high amounts
of renown.

Although basic torpedo load will cost you nothing, adding advance torpedo types to
your loadout will require renown.

Improving the systems or adding new ones to your U-Boat will also tax you renown.

Gaining the right to wear an emblem and to personalize that depends entirely on
your performance during the patrols.

I hope it was ok to post this. I feel a little embarrassed that I didn't ask you first, but you know how we're all STARVING in here for any info! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I mean, look at the IRC posts (that have nothing to do with the game) lately.
