    I read a thread on the official site that stated every month or 2 it would be updated with training for different classes.

    If anyone else is having trouble downloading from the US servers, try the link on the first page of this thread. It's an Aussie site by the look of it, but it's fast. I was getting around 185K a second download speeds from there.

    All I have left for training is the MOUT level. The few times I have found an open server, I haven't been able to connect. I think the best ping I've seen is around 400, but most are 1000 to 3000.

    how well have you done on rifle qualifacation? the best i have done is 35/40 all i need for expert is 36. so close yet so far. the bridge map is the best. my secret, m-16/203, when you see one or two bad guys, put a 40mm right in their face at 75m.

    Argh, the servers are still horrible. I beat the basic training shooting on my first try, 25/40 I believe. I'm still waiting to get in some online action though.

    There's a bug that really won't let you do that. It is so damn annoying, too. I can't wait until they get it fixed, so I can move on to the advanced training exercises. Like 82nd Airborne.

    I wonder... do they let foriegn countries participate? Obviously they won't be a recruiting canidate.

    I downloaded the game from an Australian server, so they have it and play it, I would guess. They probably get bad pings because none of the servers are over there though.

    It always seems like these big online games that come out (EQ, WW2 online, this, etc.) all have screwed up launches with their servers. Hopefully SWG will go smoothly.

    Anyone been able to complete the MOUT training yet? Every time I check the servers, the HomeLAN ones are always empty and the 2 or 3 others are full. Also, I've heard that even if you do get in, the server might not register that you passed. Oh well, hopefully they'll get it worked out.

    I came to the conclusion yesterday that even if this is a recruitment tool for the army, I'm safe because apparently, I am rock stupid. I'm on the obstacle course, and I cannot seem to get over the part where you have to climb the wall, cross the beam and go down the net. I've climbed down the net, I've jumped off the wall, I've sidestepped down the wall... and no matter what happens, I always here "That might be your way, but it's not the army's way..." and have to do it again. The only way I seem to be able to get up the second wall (the sloped one, after the beams) is to hop up it. I've looked up the wall at all sorts of angles, and can't climb it normally. But, the instructor doesn't stop me when I hop and normally he stops me right away if I have done something wrong. Is there a trick I'm missing?

    Wampas, I had that problem too at first, but it seems that happens if you get too close to the sides of the obstacle. Stay in the center so you don't hit the support logs and you should be fine.

    I actually got into the MOUT training, but my team ended up sucking pretty bad, so I didn't move on. [face_plain]

    Thanks Dum, I'll have to try that out, though I would have thought in all my attempts, I would have done it already. So do you just use jump to get up the sloped wall? It was the only way that worked for me... seemed wrong though.

    No, you just climb up it, and when you get to the top, turn around and climb down.

    Well, I just finished downloading Direct X 8.1, after installing America's Army and getting an error when I tried to load it..hopefully it will work after I install DX8.1

    EDIT:I just downloaded it, and it's very choppy and hard to aim..I probably have an inferior computer..oh well.
