Ok, I just downloaded FH just a few days ago and I must say it totally rocks! :bows: . But theres some things I can't figure out about the game...... 1. Is some mortors, Tank destroyers, and artillary vehicles. When you righ click a reticle pops up and starts to show some random locations and when I fire the camera just follows the rocket/shell. This thing has confused the hell out of me and I have no idea how to use it. The reticle just keeps viewing into some random area and I dont see how that helps. 2. Why isnt my parachute working? Im pressing "9" reapetdly but I can never seem to have a parachute. Whats wierd is the parachute works sometimes when I play different countries...... 3. I hear some vehicles have "Special abilties" but Ive yet to find any, is this true, and how can I use it? Thats all questions I really have for now, I'll post more if any I come across any..... This mod is really great though, probably best mod ive played in a LONG time :nodding: .

First of all, glad you like the mod.

masterstevenx41. Is some mortors, Tank destroyers, and artillary vehicles.

The reticle just keeps viewing into some random area and I dont see how that helps.[/quote] you are getting the indirect fire mode of artillery. What you are seeing is a "spot" that was made by some other player, either using a kit equipped with binoculars, or a vehicle that is capable of acting as an artillery spotter. I suspecy that the any "tank destroyers" that are doing this are really just enclosed artillery vehicles--some of them look a bit like tank destroyers.

Only pilots and paratroopers have parachutes--in some maps, you can spawn as paratroopers or pilots, in others you need to pick up kits. Many maps don't have either one. [quote=masterstevenx4] 3. I hear some vehicles have "Special abilties" but Ive yet to find any, is this true, and how can I use it?

This is a little too complicated to answer in one post--some vehicles have flame throwers, some can repair and rearm friendly vehicles, some can deploy support weapons, some are mobile spawnas, and some, as mentioned earlier, can make artullery spots. There are other special abilities as well. For more info about playing FH uin general check out this page: http://forgottenhope.bf1942files.com/main.php?module=tutorials&tutorial=1

You forgot the most special ability of all!! In kubelwagens you can lower your windscreen !!!1!!!one!!! And when you go altenate view with artillery, you can see your elevation and traverse marked on the scales to the right and top of your sreen, and based on the point of impact you can adjust these.
