Why the Huge Wait to Start the Game and All the Advertising from Uplay on a Game I Paid For?
Everytime I start the game I have to wait for the Uplay server to synk with the saved games. This can take a very long time and I have to just sit and wait. This is interesting because those times that I may not be able to be on the internet, the game asks if I would like to start from the last save which is on my hard drive. Which is always the most current save file. Now without the option of making a choice, I have to wait an even longer time for the game to load from the server. Why can't I just start the game from the saved file on my computer? Why do I have to wait for Uplay to take so long to sink? Along with this I must wait while direct X is downloaded to my computer from the server every time I start the game, when I already have it on my hard drive. This is amazing as to how long it takes to load. Why is this being downloaded each time I play when I already have the program on my hard drive?

Now the real ♥♥♥♥er. Wenever I start the game I have to wait for the Uplay website to update first with fresh advertising. Another long wait. This is a ruely a waste of my time and I hate to wait for advertising when I PAID for the game. Last but not the least when I shut down the game I am always subjected to a pop up that is from Uplay just in case I want to download another game. Another waste of my time since I PAID for the current game and if I want another game I will let Uplay know.

I paid for the game. I resent the abuse from the advertisers taking advantage of a situation that is technically out of my control. I paid Uplay a good deal of money to own the game, now leave me alone and let me enjoy it without putting me through this server and advertising obstical course.

Disable synchronize in game in the U-play settings menu. Also, delete your saved games, except for the most recent. Saved games are in the Ubisoft directory, not Steam. Once these are deleted and you have turned off synch, your game will load much faster.

Valkyries, I've looked into Uplay website and can't find the game settings for Silent Hunter. Can you help find the settings? You seem pretty savvy. Thanks.

The game settings are on your Uplay page, in the upper right corner where the cog (gear) symbol is. Go there, and you should find it no problem.
