FH2.4 First Immpressions
« on: 15-07-2011, 20:07:38 »
I am waiting for a customer to stop by. Doesnt look good when a grown man is playing a video game!

So ill start a first impressions thread. What do you think about the changes in 2.4? I got into a quick Vossenack server. The sounds are the first thing I noticed! Really good job! They have much more oomph to them. And the death sound is much more manly!

Also the tank turret movement is gonna take some getting used to. Is this so point and shoot is removed? takes a sec longer to line up a shot? if so I like it!

What else? The Hurtgen forest is amazing to go through as well...

So far, great job guys! ill be enjoying this well into the winter.....

Tank turret hints:

- Lower your mouse sensitivity to very, very low. Almost minimum. Makes the turret actually responsive.
- Add arrowkeys to your tank turrets controls.
- Use arrowkeys to turn turrets easier and use your mouse to fine adjust aim.

Remember:
- Using high mouse sensitivity in your tank control settings will make your turret go bat-shit insane and very, very difficult to control. This is to counter people who were laming with the sensitivity in the first place. They used to have high sensitivity to make the turrets spin very fast. This made it very lame and unfair towards those who didnt do this. Now they are leveled to more even grounds.

Yeah.. it does take a while to get used to using mouse on tank turrets, I overshot my targets very often but I got the hang of it eventually.. Then I started using keyboard and boy it feels good, feels so much more.. mechanical.. heavy.. Metal somehow. So from now on, it's two hands on the keyboard when I drive a tank, and I'll be driving a lot more tank from now on!!

Do you reduce sensitivity in-game? Or in Windows? If you change it doesn't it affect infantry too? Pointing weapons?

Guess ill get used to the arrow keys whilst tanking.

How about other impressions guys??

Like I said: Tank controls.

This means ingame and in Tank controls section.

Two quick questions.
The crash on alt-tab bug has made an unwelcome return for me. I remember there was a fix for it somwhere, where can i find it? This is vital because my computer likes to alt-tab me out of games.
Edit: Derp, fixed. Behold the power of the search button.
Secondly, how the shit do I shut the tutorial guy up? I don't need to learn how to play battlefield 2 AGAIN! :P

So I played 2.4 for some rounds now and its epic.
The game immersion is even more intense now thanks to great graphics and new sound.
The new maps are great, controls are new, but still good... only thing that bugs me is driving and turning in tanks...
I have serious problems with driving tanks in tight spots like on town roads... somehow tanks cannot reverse properly... if you slam in reverse and you tank is slightly placed downhill, nothing seems to happen... and if you want to turn by going forward the tank first turn smooth for a second and then suddenly jumps forward slamming into the next wall... you cannot retreat backwards or turn on the spot... maybe something can be done about that...

Probably due to lag, create your own server and see if tanks behave

Ok, was wrong impression... obviously it's only about the M18 Hellcat... you cannot go backwards up a hill... takes ages to accellerate... which is the sure death for a vehicle that relies on speed.
