If your having trouble getting to the other training missions even after completeing the marksmanship qualification and putting in your user and pass.. goto [url]http://www.americasarmy.com[/url] and change your PASS to LESS than 8 characters! NO MORE THAN (8) EIGHT!.. It should work for you then.. I had this problem and just now found the solution..

Hey, is anyone else having massive problems qualifying? I can only BARELY qualify, I get 22 (failing) or 23 (barely passing) 90% of the time, the other 10% I fail miserably. Its mostly due to the odd speed for the mouse movement (no slider anywhere to change it). I really want to go to sniper school... Kharn

Kharn, you can manually edit the configuration file for the game to change your mouse sensitivity. I can't give you the exact path to the file at the moment, because this computer doesn't have the game installed, but just muck around in the installation dir until you find a file called config.cfg or something like that. Open it in Notepad, and near the bottom you should find a setting for mouse sensitivity. Changing it doesn't help much. Just practice, practice, practice. I managed to shoot 35/40, but I'm still trying for Expert before I submit any results.

Is it a squad control game or just one character to control like Unreal?

Qualifing sux. I understand the addition of breathing to the game, but in real life, you control your breathing, not someone else. ANYWAY, I got past Qual but I'm stuck trying to get into the mout stage... [:(]

Kharn maybe your not using ZOOM.. to bring the sights up.. Press Z for default to bring them up and its much easier to get sharpshooter (30) my best is 38/40

I for the life of me can't get expert. I found that the breathing in and out of zoom has a flaw in it that allowing me not pull off as good as a score as I can. When quickly going in and out of zoom, the breathing is inconsistant, you'll hear him breathing quickly out then quickly in, its really weird. Anyways it throws me off to the point where it effects my aiming at those silouettes 300m while standing. Thanks for the tip Vermilion

It is similar to counterstrike or Firearms. Your team has certain objectives. I had no trouble getting through qualifying. Had trouble joining servers till someone on the board suggested hitting F3 after it says you are not qualified to play this level. That being said it sucks getting picked off two minutes into the round from somebody on a hill and all you can see is the flash of their gun. I was spending a lot of time sitting around for next round to start.

As for qualifying, it's best to just try things out at first. Don't worry about perfection. You can send in your data to their servers as many times as you want. Also, adjust your firewalls and proxy server software accordingly. I had to temporarily turn off my "Proximotron" because the multiplayer uses Internet Explorer to log in and it needs a real connection to your web browser. I have a sharp shooter rating so far, as I get used to the game I may go back and requalify for better ratings. Practice lightly clicking the mouse without moving the rest of the mouse. I adjusted my mouse speed in the control panels. Maybe a later patched version will include mouse sensitivity controls within the game. The more that I play, the more I like it. It is very realistic. Crawling, taking cover and your enemies sight picture is often nothing but a tiny moving shape or muzzle flash.

I qualified expert with 37 of 40. I hadn't heard about he name thing though. I was told that all authorization servers were down. If your having trouble playing over gamespy try searching and putting in the ip address. To do this open the console at game start by pressing ` or the key left of 1. Then type open 232.333.33.333, etc. There is a bridge map open now at 24.154.151.189. Only a few there. Bill3508

I have a problem, and no one answers questions at the America's Army website. When I try to run the game, it says: Direct3DCreate8 failed. History: CreateDirect3D <- UD3DRenderDevice::Init <- UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine Anyone know what that means?

Yep, download directx 8.1 from download.com and update your graphics card drivers Keving67

After qualifying, I go to MOUT training and it kicks me back to the start screen. Do I have to play MOUT on the net or is it built in to the game? Keving67

OK, now the game works. . .for a few minutes. Now, every time I get into the game, the guy tells about the training mission, and then the game freezes, and I have to restart the computer.

Mout is a Online Human VS Human. thou it doesnt always qual you if you win. very annoying considering MOUT servers are hard to find.

Just edit the save game file to get beyond the GAY MOUT course. Honestly, the MOUT course gets really rediculous after about the 5th time playing it without qualifying. It's a rather annoying feature if you get into a game where it's nothing but a bunch of lone wolfs on your team and you have no teamwork to cover your six or give you cover fire. Somebody posted a link the other day for the site that showed how to edit the save game, go into the Army Operations folder wherever you have it installed, go into the System folder then go into the Save folder. Under the name for your character open in notepad, you'll see a whole row of numbers with commas seperating them, on the third number from the left change it from a 0 to a 1. That should clear you from MOUT training, helps for those who have had an ever loving pain trying to find a MOUT server to join. If it doesn't work, just go back into the save file and change it from a 1 back into a 0. It did work for me too, got sick of the MOUT crap after about the 7th game without any notice of passing or any recognition for my efforts. Can you say, "poor documentation"? Forums are so slow at the America's Army site that it's a pain to go looking for info there. After the edit I was able to join up with another game/map no problem.
