I live in Germany and I only bought the UK Version because a game importing company promised me that the UK Version ist uncut. And because I always wants games as realistic as possible I bought it for a lot of money believeing it is uncut. Today i received the game and had to found out that it is not uncut infact. All "Hackenkreuze" are replaced with invented symbols and their are no "Heil Hitler" calls in the game. These censorship completly destroys the game. So what can I do to play the game at least with proper "Hackenkreuzen". Can somebody send me a patch to remove this censors or tel me how to play the game uncut.

Thank You

No, it is not possible, because I already opened it. And i wants to play the game, I only need a patch that removes this censors. I am sure that this is not a problem for the developers to write such a patch. And I am sure that they are more people that wants to play the game uncut.

Thank You

The developpers prolly can write a patch but I think they won't since then they will get in trouble with the German government.

They won't get in trouble with the german goverment if the patch only works with the US and UK Version and not with the german one.

There is no patch out as of today, as that would require graphic file modifications... but I doubt that Pyro would make such modifications. I don't see why they would not make the game as pure as it is, historical accuracy should be there for anyone to learn.

That also includes realistic 'pain' remarks when the commandos get hurt, not some childish ouch. This game was rated teen, at least hold up to the rating!

They are "Hackenkreuze" in Commandos 3 UK. Only 2 "Hackenkreuze" in the Totorial were removed by a mistake. I hope that this will fixed in the next patch.

it's how poeple of germany call it. to be honest it is not german sign. Pepole in india still use it. prolly some other nations too.
didnt payed attention if it is wrong sided or not. it is better to have swastica then cross.

hey karlmueller, could you make some screenshots of how things instead swastica looks like?

Note that india uses a reversed version of it in the colour blue I believe on white background, used on naval flags? I don't really recall.

And yes there was a reversed swastika in Stalingrad on the transport plane:
Found here (http://www.cheatheaven.co.uk/reviews/pc/c/reviewspc_commandos3_01.jpg)
I do believe that is the Ju52 and it is clearly shown here (http://www.afwing.com/images/ju52/ju52-g7e.jpg) that this should not have been so. :rolleyes:

And sorry I have looked in a dictionary but the word was not included maybe because it is censored in **** germany!!!

karlmueller, yes you're right. On the first screenshot the flag has a waving swastika to the opposite side, but have you tried to change the view angle? The ends should be leading to the right. Observe the screenshot of the ju52 and you will see the reversed swastika.
