why does everything have to be a trick with this game? I just finished trying to do this live jump for airborn and i hit the circle like 10 times but it kept telling me unsat!! Their are no tricks in war or training! I also finished medic training because it says COMPLETED, but when I try to play as a medic it says i'm not qualified. Now it says for 2.0 that you can go to special forces training but it says unavailable. Maybe somebody could shine some light on these.

If you havent completed jump school and medic school you cant do the SF training. and you have to have 15+ honor to do the SF training or be in SF in game. the AUth. servers are up so keep trying you will get it. and in jump school there are no tricks you just have stear your way to the LZ:landing zone.

yeah but it says medic school is complete but i still cant play as medic. I hit that circle dead center almost and still said i failed. how come nowhere in basic training does it say if you hit 36 out of 40 targets you get to go on to advanced marksmanship.

Laser,

I understand your frustration. I can take it your not in the ARMY. When I went to Marksmanship training back in 91 at Fort Knox it was hard getting 36 out of 40 and I didn't get it. It took practice much like this game. Try a trackball mouse, it is more accurate than any optical mouse.

Your Sentence: "Their are no tricks in war or training!", This is not a trick, the ARMY trains its soldiers to understand how to survive in any given situation (i.e. proper Parachute Landing Fall or PLF). There are standards the ARMY employs so that it maximizes survivability on the battlefield.

Additionally, your problem about hitting the circle. I attended REAL LIFE AIRBORNE SCHOOL and they harped on flaring your chute at just the right moment to avoid landing too hard. If you flare your chute (pull in and twist body), you cup the appropriate amount of air to slow down your decent at just the right moment to avoid breaking your legs. I have seen real life broken legs because of this. When you twist, you should land in the direction of your decent (i.e. float right, land on right side etc) this allows you to not break legs etc.

Hope that helps.

I agree with Cpt Evans. You gotta do that live jump exactly right or you won't get credit. I tried about a hunnert times and on my last jump as soon as I got out of the plane I turned , um, west I think but I was facing in the same direction the plane was going and did my direction keys some, hit dead center! Going straight down from the plane didn't work for me.
