Submarine Simulations

Post by bigal » November 19th, 2011, 9:46 am

Does anyone know of a good submarine simulation that will run on Win 7? I used to have Silent Service, but it seems that all the versions are not compatible. TIA :)

I don't have the game anymore. Maybe I'll write to the company to see if that is possible before I purchase something. I have the home edition of Win 7.

Silent Hunter 5 is listed as a download for XP/Vista. I wrote to UbiSoft to see what they say. I'll post their answer when it comes.
