I know this sounds kinda dumb, but when i do the level, live jump, i cant find the circle. I landed dead center of the smoke gernade, but appearently that wasnt it. Where is the circle?

That is the circle, you just have to land without breaking your legs, it isreally hard to land like that because no one knows how it is done. If you do it a few times it will evetually land right.

Congrats on getting in the circle. Many people have trouble getting in the circle, let alone the smoke. :) About ten feet from the ground you will want to flare.

It doesn't really make a difference, if you hear the bones crack...its time to heal...then redo the jump. The flaring is a matter of judgement call, but you only have a small window of opportunity in which to do it. You do it too soon, or too late, and its back to the ortho ward to heal your bones... Good luck, hope you pass it.

i just passed the jump couple of minutes ago...i guess i forgot to flare, lol. Now i have another question, even though this dont have to do with Parachuting. For some reason, during the lectures (Medical and Spec Ops), there is a slide in the front. For some reason the slides dont show up, and during the Spec Ops test....well you can figure out what happened. Why is this happening?
