Just stupid noobie questions:

1) Is it possible to ignore all chat messages except from people on your buddy list? 2) Does anyone else have the problem that BF occasionally just selects another spawn point for you (and you pop up somewhere completely different from where you originally chose)? 3) Has anyone ever figured out why some people are able to "de-select" spawn points (i.e. choose to no longer spawn _anywhere), and others aren't? I've never found an explanation for this. Apparently some people have an option to un-select a spawn point, rather than just choosing a different one.

Hi There,

You can use the ignore function so that you don't hear the smacks talk use " ignore 'player number' " Thats the only way I have been able to silence the kids.

I also get that incorrect spawn bug along with the incorrect kit I can only assume its a game / map bug.

I have wondered this aswell, I have come to the conclusion its probobly a console command similar to how people can type in chat when a round is over and the scoreboard is up. Unfortunately my knowledge of the console is pretty limited to some basic functions.

I know this -- however, I'm trying to do the reverse, i.e. ignore everyone in certain games except for people whose IDs are on my 'green' list. I find myself getting way too distracted by arguments and silliness, as most of you who've played with me can attest.

As for the people typing in chat while the scoreboard is up, I thought those were just "leftover" chat messages from the round?

1. No, but you can mentally ignore them if you have the brain power! 2. I've had that problem a few times, but it went away so I didn't bother to find out more. 3. You don't deselect the point, you just press Close instead of Enter or Spawn. It simply closes the spawn window and you are free to move around in free cam for as long as you like. When you want to spawn just press enter twice, once to bring up the spawn window.

I figured out a way to deselect spawnpoints on 'Battle of Foy', for the plane ride. By the way, I think I've played with you once on that map, while I was doing the plane launches. My ingame name is Zizou.

Anyway, what you have to do is die, then select a different spawn point from your original, and finally just CLOSE the spawn menu instead of pressing Enter. That way, you will be able to spectate other players for as long as you want, and also not spawn. When you want to spawn, just open the spawn menu again and select where you wanna spawn and hit Enter.

Ooer, I'll try that, thanks!

I recall messing around with dozens of variations on this with someone, with no success.

1 dunno but wjlaslo is right on 3. With number 2 its a little funny but I have a theory. You are probably clicking too fast and miss the spawn button slightly. If you miss it slightly you are actually on the map. If there is a spawn point in the proximity, you will select it. I spawn on the beach constantly in charlie sector. I bet thats the issue, It was only recently that I caught myself doing that. Now I have a noob question... Can you change which spotter view you want when there are multiples?

Scroll wheel goes through the spots I believe.

Yes, but sometimes it can glitch and just blacks out, or does the same spot, and other things. It's very annoying.

No, that's the point--he's right with some players, but with others it doesn't work like this. There is an options entry missing for some of us, I tried it out with another player a while ago.

What spawn button? This happens to me from spawn to spawn without ever having opened the spawn menu.

Can you change which spotter view you want when there are multiples?

Yes. I have mine mapped to keypad /, forget which that is. PM me to remind me next time we play and I'll look.
