I noted that you can get hung up if you get too close to the side of the corridor too, which of course you do because you can't see where you are going and only know you've reached the end when you stop moving.

My install reverted back to 60% done and started updating again this morning. That's one mighty big patch, or I'm guessing a small change in some big files rolled out without the foresight or effort to create a proper patch

Nackajeem, I believe they did that deliberately. So you had to strafe and move about in that section. What it needed was some commentary to point it out to you. so you didn't think the game had glitched - haha.

mmm, there's an offical "stop training, for now" message for us
America's Army 3 *released* | post #12

If the game told you what was required for each step to pass that would stop a huge number of training steps being repeatedly played during issues like the current master servers one. It makes no sense to me why they didn't include this info in all training missions.

All I've seen so far is a lack-of-common-sense and I haven't even tried online yet!

I totally agree ned, they needed to test this more before releasing it.

I seemed to recall that a message came up on screen to tell you what to do in each section of the obstacle course, including which keys to press. Maybe I'd enabled subtitles or something that wasn't on by default

Right, so I've got to forget about learning how to play the game and just jump straight into an mp server and it'll be so intuitive I'll be dominating the opposition in no time. Oh, unless the server's player count is inaccurate and I get kicked.

Think I'll stick for now with putting up with the likes of L4D's lobby system instead.

I had exactly the same thing.......and I left all settings default except resolution and controls.
