Found this out quite by mistake. I was stuck with 1.3 because I have the download version of the game & didn't want to waste an install (you only get 5 you see). Anywho my girlfriend got some nasty adware on the comp surfing the net, couldn't get rid of the popups with ad-aware or norton so I did a system restore to a week before it happened (also the day before I installed 1.3). I was playing tonight & noticed my sonarman had been been cured of his laerungitus *sp* and his acute ******ation! As a bonus all of my saves (even the ones I played after I installed 1.3) were still there. I'm not sure if this will work for the DVD version but I don't see why not.

Woo Hoo!!!!!

hope this helps,

checked the menu screen & it says version 1.2 in the lower right hand corner now. There are some good things about 1.3 but I have little time to play & 1024 time compression without a sonar man just tends to throw me to the destroyers http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
