Gameplay Features:

-----------------

1) APCs are crucial to teamwork - they repair tanks and other vehicles as well as giving health and ammo. The APC driver has a mouselook ability, and can even look round to see his teammates in the back (good clan screenshots welcomed!). There are extra APCs added to most of the original maps, and they stay around for longer (so you can use them as mobile supply points).

2) There is a lot of fixed artillery so make use of it.

3) The LVT2 is a mobile spawn point.

4) The M3 Scout Car has an armored windscreen - to improve visibility, raise it with the landing craft ramp keys (usually up/down arrows).

5) Small arms generally have 3D ironsights.

I don't know if it is off topic that actually Battlefield Vietnam Redux has a ww2 mod with Iwo Jima, Invasion of Philipines and Wake Island. I used to singleplay them with bots

I'm ready too, nice work man!
Glad to have you back Diego. ;)

okay so in the server list your server "Batllegroup42/Vietnam" is gray and its supposed to be "gold-yellow", that means its not compatible with the game, that's why "Error Corrupted data". Make sure that Hello event server must be up to 1.21 or compatible, I'm getting a bit frustrated of re- and preinstalling the game, even I know now making the mods work on my preinstalled game
my original, CD install is useless audio-sound issues cannot be fixed + "data differs from server/corrupted data"
It was not greyed out because it's the wrong version...it was greyed out because the server was offline.

Please try connecting to it now.



Regards,
Ice
