    Try sliding your ring finger down from A to Z for prone, it's usually what I do.

    Interesting, I usually leave Q and E for hotkeys for nice abilities, or if a game allows you to strafe and turn at the sametime then I always get in the habit of hitting combos like Q+W+E or E+W+A.

    I use Forward = E, Back = D, Right Strafe = F, Left Strafe = S, Weapon change = A, crouch = C, Prone = Z. You all should try using that.. To me your hand lays more natural. :toast:

    Yes, finally got my invite last night and played till like 2am. It is fun, but hard with nothing unlocked. I know i like to play defense more, don't die all the time and usually get more kills.

    Does anybody else have the game constantly in windowed mode? I can't get mine to do a complete full screen, it always has the windows buttons.

    No it was windowed at first but fullscreen was not selected in options which worked.

    Yeah Kurgan it's kind of a liability as Q and E do have good uses but I usually just use A and D for those things instead. Also use A and D for nose up/down (whatever it's called) when flying. Note I never claimed to be a good pilot lol

    If a game allows ou to have strafe and turn buttons do you unbind one set, I'm assuming turn then just use your mouse for it?

    I play like this....

    Left mouse = Forward
    Right mouse = Back
    Left Shift = Strafe left
    Z = Strafe right
    X = Aim down sights
    C = Shoot
    V = Prone
    Ctrl = Kneel
    D = Run
    R = Reload
    Tab = Enter/interact

    Started on a Apple years ago and its tough to break old habits.

    ^ lmao

    Yeah, Kurgan, to answer your question.

    Yes some got the email, some of us like me and Alex just tried logging in with our EA accounts and it gave us a code. Others, neither happened...

    Edit: Hmm apparently here's a way to change binds. Anyone want to try this? I'm at work.


    And here are some further tweaks using a diff method/util:

    I don't have like 9000 hours in the game ether.

    If you would have caught me 10 years ago in Quake 3.......well.......

    Seriously. I used to move like this guy.



    Not so much anymore. If you take one day off from playing you lose mojo.

    This is just some info I saw on the interwebs... New version of the BF3 alpha abvailable for download.

    What does the new version entail?


    Fixed so Bug sentry sends crash info
    Fixed a telemetry error that caused some reporting to be wrong
    Fixed a exe problem that allowed clients to visually host server
    Adjusted the value of several scoring events
    Tweaked balance on some weapons

    We recommend nVidia players go and download the nvVidia 280.19 beta drivers from www.nvidia.com as it contains changes which should improve the BF3 Alpha Trial experience.


    Service stars:

    Now have names to show why you got it
    Reduced to 2000 points (previously 10000)

    Scoring:

    Repair points now work for both squad and the rest of the team
    Resupply points now work for both squad and the rest of the team

    Ribbons

    A few adjustments to criteria needed for ribbons.

    Weapons:

    Increased damage of bolt sniper rifles at long ranges for two hit kills.
    Fixed so claymore mines will detonate and damage properly. Note you can crouch or prone to move past a mine without detonating it.
    Adjusted the distance fall off for all automatic weapons. Weapons retain their power in extreme CQB but require an addition hit to kill at longer ranges.
    Increased the headshot bonus to reward players for accurate fire at long ranges.
    Fixed a bug where Snipers were never perfectly accurate like they should have been.
    Increased the range of shotgun pellets to better fit our battle distances.
    Tweaked the recoil of the G36C, this weapon had far too little recoil.

    So, there are claymores in BF3. Hmmm.

    I found them on the Support kit but I have to get like 123000 point for the Support kit to unlock them. I think they are the un-unlockable item that was on BC2 remember the Beta? It had some really high score item.

    Nah, i like the name, have used it for awhile now. That way it doesn't matter when i do badly, and get called a noob.

    I have tried the options, but don't have any thing for fullscreen for some reason. Whenever i launch the game from origins, it just opens up the game in a new window, and never goes completely full screen.

    Also, anybody get weird sound problems? At times my sound is very quite, and others LOUD. This is with yelling, reloading, shooting, whatever, etc...


    Oh, and if anybody wants to add me I go by newbsandwich in game also.
