1.] I created an online account and used my CD key as the validation code, but I get a Connection Reset error. What's up with this, is there another way to get online?

2.] I can't figure out how to deploy things like the movable truck or make a bridge. I become engineer and have my wrench out and I can heal things but how do I deploy them? The manual says press 5 for your deploy tools and I have some wristband computer but I keep using it and I don't get any results. I get the feeling this is really simple, please help me out.

1) No idea, personally. 2) By movable truck, I assume you mean the MCP? Drive it to the objective, and then exit it. To make a bridge, you go to a bridge construction station (looks like a bunch of sandbags and stuff, has an objective marker if it's in the mission/the current objective) and you hold down the "use" key. Or, you can select the wrench, and hold down the "fire" key on the station.

Deploy tools are something quite different. If you're an Engineer/Field Ops/Covert Ops or the Strogg equivalents, you do, in fact, select that wristband thing. Then, you left-click, you move the mouse over where you want the deployable placed, you use the scroll wheel to select a deployable, and you left-click. Finally, you use the mouse to point it in a direction, and then click again. It is then delivered onto the battlefield, shortly. It takes about 5-10 seconds to place it, and about another 20-30 to deploy.

If you're a Covert Ops, there's only a radar. If you're an Engineer, you can choose between automated anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, or anti-artillery turrets. Field Ops, however, can place fire support: after placing a deployable, you use these manually by taking out your targeting binoculars (not the same wristband, I think it's the last item in the weapon selection menu), and holding down the left mouse button. Then, the artillery cannon/missile launcher/Hammer missile fires at whatever you targeted.

Did this help at all?

Number one is really more important than number 2 but thanks anyway.

I did both of those things, driving the MPC to the green area but it didn't deploy itself ?!! Also, I wrench away at the sandbags and woodpile but it does no good. :bawl:
