Options for the hearing impaired

I have a very good friend in the USA whom I have teamed with many times and I have been trying to get her involved in this game. She has graciously joined the Asian server to team up with me (I'm in Australia) and I have been imparting my wealth of knowledge about this game upon her, which hasn't taken long to do. :)

 

However she is deaf after a diving mishap some time ago and forever being sunk by torpedoes mainly due to the fact that she is unable to hear the audible in game warning when torpedoes are inbound.

So my suggestion is to have an option for an on screen text warning that coincides with the current audible warning which would greatly help my friends awareness and end her main frustration thus far in this game.

Other options for the hearing impaired I'll add later if and when they come to mind and these type of options would open the game up to a whole new section of players whom might otherwise have been apprehensive to play due to the restrictions their impairment has caused.

 Well theres a warning icon for incoming torpedoes that flash together with the warning sound. Idk if theres a mod that can enlarge the torpedo warning icon atleast 

 

Hello,

I'm fairly new to the game and I do not yet know all of the features, but so far I have not seen any warning icons for incoming torpedoes. If you could possibly tell me where on the screen that these warnings appear; It would be much appreciated.

The warning icons looks like a torpedo, shows up in the middle of the screen and points to the direction of the attack. May need to have a Modder find a way to make the icon bigger

Thank you all very much. I appreciate the time that you have taken to help me with this matter. I guess I was too occupied with trying to stay alive to notice these warning icons before.:)

It's hard to notice them when you have to look at your screen to dodge things. Like said above, let us hope that modders increase the size of those warning.

Actually I don't think those warning icons are enough... Sometimes I miss them too and I don't even have the unfortunate handicap your lady friend has... What it really needs is a "TORPEDO INCOMING" that flashes either above or below the central crosshair... Currently IMO I think the torpedo warning icons seem a bit subtle... and even though there are audible cues sometimes this game needs to be "in-your-face" with those torp warnings... Kind of like the ones in another "Tank-em-Up" from "Not WG"...

 

I think this should be taken up seriously by WG... Handicapped gamers are still a significant base and they can gain alot from them in more ways than just moolah...

Yes an "in your face" warning would be very helpful and things like this could be in the options menu to activate or not.
