I can't figure it out. I made it through the first two levels of basic pretty easily. Then comes the US weapons training. I step up tp the weapon on the table, but can't pick it up. Every other movement works perfectly. The screen instructs me to use <> for this , but they do nothing. I couldn't find anything in the control menues for this. Is this a total retard question? What gives? Ugggh!
[color=red]not a total retard question...
you use 'e' to pick up weapons, delete(backspace) drops them.
'e' also opens doors an whatnot, its the action key.[/color]
Thanks for the reply, but using 'e' did not work. In fact I tried every possible key and nothing worked. I tried again after logging out, restarting my computer, and cursing loudly at the game -- OK, so I'm getting a bit frustrated.
This game has potential. But so far I'm not impressed with all the bugs. It never remembers my control settings after logging out. I always have to go in an fix something. It crashes often, and takes forever to exit, slowing all other functions down for 5 minutes after quitting. I've never had this much trouble on any other FPS. I hope the guys who put this together are not the same "experts" who do the programming for actual military ops software. OK, finished venting. But i still can't pick up a damn weapon!
Damn that sucks for you.
Have you done any key binding? Say like assigned the "E' key to perform another function?
i think the problem is that your "action" key does not a have a function, like what red dog seven said. Go to Settings-Controls-Movement and see if there is a use/action key. If its not in movement, try the combat menu and all the others. When the window at the bottom says something like "Use <> to pick up weapons", then that key does not a have function.
[color=red]:uhm: my game doesnt crash and such :uhm:
and yeah, like matrix and DR7 said :agreed[/color]
Thanks all. You guys hit the nail on the head. Turns when I set my controls, the game blanked out the action key. It works now, and I have finally been able to move on to join missions.
Now the only problem is that I suck at this game. It must be fun to kill people like me ten thousand times in a row (lol)!
[color=red]:lol: yeah, its a great feeling when you drop someone in this game.
I suck too though so it doesn't happen much for me :uhm: [/color]
eflIt must be fun to kill people like me ten thousand times in a row (lol)!
LMAO! I feel the same way at times. Its funny to think of all the classic mistakes most ppl, including myself, do when first learning the game. Glad to here you got it going.....
