THE CONQUEST MODE
The goal of CONQUEST mode is to reduce your opponent's tickets to 
zero. The current numbers of tickets are shown above the MINIMAP.
These tickets are a pool of lives shared by everyone on the same 
team. There are two ways to reduce an opponent's pool of tickets: 
kill enemy soldiers or capture control points.


KEYS:
Forward/Backward:                         W/S
Side step:                                A/D
Walk:                                   SHIFT
Crouch:                                 Q
Prone:                                  Z
Jump:                                   SPACE
Enter/Exit a Vehicle:                        E
Select weapon from the inventory:        1-6 OR mouse wheel up/down
Opens a parachute:                        9
Bring the respawn interface down:        RETURN
Go back to the menu:                        ESCAPE


THE CLASSES:

SCOUT
The SCOUT KIT is equipped with a long-range sniper rifle, which 
allows him to really reach out and touch someone at a distance.  
He can also spot for teammates who are in an artillery positions 
(vehicle or ship). To do this equip yourself with the binocular 
and press the FIRE button. This will place a camera for a set 
amount of time, which your teammate can use to place his shots. 
You can only spot on one location at a time.

Inventory:
1)knife
2)pistol
3)sniper rifle
4)grenades
5)binoculars


ASSAULT
The ASSAULT KIT is equipped with an assault rifle, which is best 
when taking out enemy infantry. Due to the guns recoil it is most 
accurate from a stationary position, either crouching or prone.

Inventory:
1)knife
2)pistol
3)assault rifle
4)grenades


AT
The ANTI-TANK KIT is equipped with an anti-vehicle weapon. Most 
vehicles have their heaviest armor in the front, so the best 
tactic when attacking is to hit them in the flank or rear. Be 
careful of enemy infantry.

Inventory:
1)knife
2)pistol
3)rocket launcher
4)grenades


MEDIC
The MEDIC KIT is equipped with a very effective short-range sub-
machinegun.  However, the true value of the medic is the ability
to heal teammates. To do that, equip yourself with the MediKit, 
get near the wounded teammate and press the FIRE button. Keep an 
ear open for cries of "MEDIC!". If you look at the MINIMAP you will 
see a red cross icon indicating the wounded teammate's location.

Inventory:
1)knife
2)pistol
3)sub machine gun
4)grenades
5)medikit


ENGINEER
The ENGINEER KIT is equipped with a standard issue rifle. The 
rifle has heavy stopping power but a long reload and limited 
ammo capacity. The true value of the engineer is his ability 
to repair vehicles and plant explosives, both landmines and 
demolition packs. To repair a vehicle, equip yourself with the 
wrench and press FIRE while near the damaged vehicle. You can 
also deactivate landmines using your wrench. To detonate the 
demolition packs after you have laid them out press the ALTERNATE 
FIRE button to equip the detonator. Press FIRE to detonate. 
Keep your ears open for teammates who need repairs. They will 
appear in your MINIMAP as a wrench icon.

Inventory:
1)knife
2)pistol
3)rifle
4)demolition pack
5)mines
6)wrench


THE VEHICLES:
in a vehicle you can switch positions by using your inventory 
keys 1-6.

HEAVY TANK
The HEAVY TANK has the best armor of any land vehicle. Coupled 
with a powerful cannon and coaxial machinegun, both controlled 
by the driver, this vehicle can own the battlefield. Be careful 
of enemy infantry, in enough numbers they can swarm even this 
powerful weapon.

LIGHT TANK
The LIGHT TANK is an infantryman's worst nightmare. A driver-
controlled cannon and coaxial machinegun coupled with a cupola-
mounted machinegun for anti-air and anti-infantry makes this 
two-person vehicle very versatile. Be careful of Heavy Tanks or 
hidden anti-tank infantry.

ARTILLERY
The ARTILLERY vehicle has the most powerful cannon among land-
based vehicles. It can also provide indirect fire across vast 
distances, and when coupled with the scout this can ruin your 
opponent's day. Be careful though as this vehicle has very weak 
armor and cannot withstand much damage.
Press right click from the gunner seat to see through placed 
guiding cameras and scroll between them with your mouse wheel. 
You see their different positions on the minimap. Selected one 
flashes.

STATIONARY MG
The STATIONARY MG presents a difficult defensive position to 
attacking units. It can cut down any unprotected infantry within 
seconds. It is ineffective against armored tanks. You will also 
want to be careful, as the machinegun is prone to over-heating.  

CLOSE TO VEHICLE
When you are near a VEHICLE/STATIONARY WEAPON, press E to enter/
exit vehicle

==================================================================
Hard Drive Space
==================================================================

Recommended:

400 MB

Install size:

270 MB

In addition to the installed game, Windows will require additional
free hard drive space for its operating system (virtual memory). 
The amount of space required varies from 100 MB to 250 MB. If you 
have less than 250 MB free space you may encounter the following
message in an error dialog:

      "Ran out of virtual memory"

If you encounter this message, free up some hard drive space.


==================================================================
Improving Gameplay Performance
==================================================================

Some machines will benefit from experimenting with your Network/
Video/Sound options:

- From the Main Menu choose the "Options" menu. Then select 
  the "Video" menu, select "Texture Quality" and choose "LOW". 
  You can also try lowering the "Graphics Quality” and "Effect
  Quality" in order to meet your machines level of performance.
  Whenever changes have been done to the "Texture Quality" 
  settings while you have a game running, that level has to be 
  restarted in order to apply the changes.

- Also from the "Video" menu, uncheck the "SHADOWS" check box. 
  This will prevent the game from creating dynamic shadows for 
  soldiers and vehicles and should improve performance.

- Also from the "Video" menu, uncheck the "LIGHTMAPS" check box. 
  This will prevent the game from adding detailed shadows on the  
  buildings, which should improve your performance.

- Also from the "Video" menu, uncheck the "ENVIRONMENT MAPPING" 
  check box. This will remove the environmental effects on water,   
  vehicles and weapons. This should improve your performance.

- Try reducing your video resolution to 640x480 in your "Video" 
  menu. The lower the resolution, the easier it is for your 
  computer to run the game.

- From the "Video" menu you can try lower your color depth from 
  32 to 16 bit by picking your desired resolution with the color 
  depth of 16 (800x600x16).

- From the "Sound" menu you can try to lower your audio quality 
  by checking the 22khz checkbox. Also test with lowering the 
  number of channels used 16, 24 or Max.

Other Issues
==================================================================

THIS IS NOT FINAL SOFTWARE. YOU MAY ENCOUNTER ISSUES WHICH WILL BE
FIXED IN THE FINAL PRODUCT. 

YOU MAY EXPERIENCE RANDOM CRASHES AND LOCK-UPS. WE ARE FULLY AWARE
OF THIS AND IT WILL BE ADDRESSED IN THE FINAL PRODUCT.


Known Crash bug: 

The game will crash to the desktop if you attempt to change 
settings and team selection after completing a round and aborting 
to the menu. You can restart the game, make your adjustments and 
be back on the Battlefield.


Sound card:

Note that the game might not run if your system lack a sound card.
This differs depending on operating system.


Keyboard remapping: 

Some users might encounter problems binding their controls and 
may receive a "Failed to save" message. This is usually due to a 
conflict with multiple actions being mapped to the same key.
You can press DEFAULT to set the keys back to original settings.


Change of resolution:

Changing resolution might affect the quality of the fonts in the 
menu. The game operates best with the default resolution of 
800x600x32.


Change of texture quality:

Whenever changes have been done to the "Texture Quality" settings 
while you have a game running, that level has to be restarted in 
order to apply the changes.


Desktop resizing:

Some systems may not resize the desktop upon exiting the game.
The user can manually go into desktop properties and reset this.


Keyboard Controls:

Some PC keyboards cannot recognize certain combinations of 3 or
more simultaneously pressed keys. This is an inherent problem
unrelated to Medal of Honor Allied Assault.
