Misc Hints/Tips Edit

  • To force a unit into another unit, for example a soldier into a vehicle; select both, open the console ('), type g_link and press enter.
  • If some units are invisible, enter Mission Editor mode (F3) and press F9. Scroll down to fog, and click the check to deactivate it.
  • You can change the video/audio/game/control options when in play mode (F1). Only the regular keybinds can be changed; the editor keybinds are hardcoded.
  • Once a mission is loaded in the Mission Editor (F3), certain functions in Map Editor mode (F2) will be locked.
