I have had odd experiences trying to use commander arty with FH2. I thought it was because FH2 required a squad request in order to use it. This led to an argument tonight that uncovered the following behavior:

I was playing as the German commander on El Alamein (64). If I tried to order artillery by right-clicking and selecting artillery or by accepting an artillery request, it only worked on a few isolated spots on the map. These spots tended to be in the middle of the desert, away from all the action. One that I can remember is just right of the German base. Any other attempt to use the arty would result in a short sound clip that sounded like radio static and no arty. And yes, I was making sure that the artillery was ready to go (artillery button was yellow). I was discussing it with several other players while experimenting and we agreed that it was something that needed to be reported.

i can confirm this. i rarely play commander and i played BF2 only for a couple of hours and in FH2 i also never really played commander, so i dont really get how the loading process bars on the commander arty work (it seems to have 2 process bars). On el alamein i once waited for couple of minute till i was sure the arty was loaded & ready and i tried to fire it on kidney ridge but only got kind of a "denied" noise! placing it somewhere else worked fine ...

could be some kind of anti-base-rape script that goes wrong i dont know best to ask the mapper !

lobo ?

Yeah, we speculated it might be caused by something that prevents you from spamming spawn points with arty. However, I then proceeded to order artillery all over the map and only found three or four places that it would let me order artillery. Most of those were pretty useless (such as next to my own base).

BUMP for some official attention/confirmation.

I just played El Alamein 64 as Brit. I was commander and observed the same behaviors as noted above. I spent some time searching the map and discovered a few more random places you can hit with artillery.

You can hit the southern flag dead on. This is the only flag where you can do that.

You can hit a spot just North of the axis uncap. It is really close to where the road heading East splits in two.

You can also hit a few spots near the east flag up on the ridge. It wasn't directly on the flag, just near it.

Shameless bump to remind me to test this.

I'm totally clueless about commander arty though, never used it. Maybe Die happy or a dev knows a little more...
