Not sure how many of you play games but here is a good game and its FREE!!! www.AmericasArmy.com You can also go to the local Army recruiter and get the game on CD for free. (it might cost you a few push ups though :wink: ) My screen name in the game is SSgt.JHenry.8654... Ballistic_Coefficiency doesnt fit by a few letters :? This is a good game to play untill Mel's game comes out. (its free and the graphics are good... the weapons are the most realistic in any game i have seen... they jam depending on type of enviornment... how many rounds fired... how fast you fire... the ballistics are relativly realistic as well.)

Here are some screen shots of myself sniping in the game. For some reason when i converted the pictures from BITMAP to JPEG some of the colors changed slightly... and it got a little blury on some parts of the pics.


You can see the sand fly in the air from the muzzle blast.


Heres a shot of the sniper from the spotter's view.


This looks like a good spot... ill set up the bipod.


Looking for movement... scanning with and without optics.


Picture taken when i fired... recoil makes it appear i was off target. It was a clean headshot.


Flank to the right to confirm headshot. You can see the hits all over the wall from the SAW gunner marking the target with tracers.


New spot... its a little foggy up here.


Confirming headshot on previous shot... kill confirmed.


New spot... new rifle. MK-12 Mod 0 SPR with 35Db supressor and 16X50mm Leupold VX-III Lit mil dot reticle.


Multiple enemy contacts... kills confirmed. 3 shots 2 kills. 1 headshot 2 chest shots.


One shot one kill... headshot on enemy sniper.


You can use the binoculars to scan and mark targets.

SF Hospital lags like crazy on my PC (even with a ping of 25 or so)... i guess it doesnt help that i have all the graphics options turned all the way up and on 1280X1024 resolution. :lol: What other maps do you play? I like the Bridge SE and Mountain Pass SE maps alot. Every once in a while ill do a CQB map. All depends on the mood im in i guess.

Also... do you have Team Speak? I have a server if you want to use it. I tried sending you an IM on yahoo messenger not sure if you got it... ill give you the server IP and info over yahoo messenger.

I like to play on the All Weapons servers (they dont allow GOD / GHOST / FLY modes only all weapons). That way i can use whatever weapon i want by simply spawning one using the "mpcheat changeweapon *enter weapon name*" command. Myself and

Did you go through all the training? You have to go through boot camp... rifle qual... MOUT training... and a few other things. Which maps you can play depends on how much training you have.

I used to play a lot of AA/O, I did like those ABN maps. First thing I did was complete Basic Infantry & MOUT, then hit the ABN school. Nailed the marked DZ on the second go. The first, was "Ah ****, there's an overshoot."

Gave it up. Had to. Turned into some kind of freakish little CounterStrike clone. I was pretty good with the M-16A2 in-game, but couldn't get that damn expert qualification to save my skin.

I've some good memories from it, but mostly bad. Unfortunately, it was a good system.

Oh man, I know what you mean qualifying lol. I tried to use the character's breathing properly but some times he missed shots for no good reason, it seemed.

Used to play a lot at work, where I had a much better PC than I do at home.

Good game though, I really liked it. The airborne instructor was cool.

Your probably missing the long range targets on the M-16A2 qualification right? You have to aim at the head to hit the target in the chest at the longer range targts. The close in to medium distance targets you can aim dead on. Also... try making a button OFF of the mouse the trigger... so that when you hit the fire button it does not move the mouse at all. Either that or get a trigger job on your mouse. :lol:

I got a score of 37 after about 10 tries. I reckon there is a bug programmed in to make it hard. I have hit a target 3 times and it still didnt go down.

The trick is to only use 1 shot per target.

Players who boast 40/40 scores have to be cheatin as it would be near impossible to do.

The idea of slaving a fire button to the keyboard is awesome! Thanks BC. I noticed that if the mouse moves at all, even if you are still on target, it will be a miss. Suprisingly (or not suprisingly :lol: ) I still wasn't smart enough to think of that lol.

Just the same I will have my mouse tuned to a nice 3.5 pounds with no creep or overtravel
