FINALLY! I've been waiting for this update for a while. Damn man, I just love it.
I might just force you into making another small update though

You know the ramp that brings you down into the Hangar Bay Aft? If you go from the Engine Room and you're considering 'chuting down onto the ramp, you can also activate the switch from the jump spot. Its pretty cool crushing a helicopter with it too. Just time it right.

Keep up the awesome work Snake.

Wow, I have been thanked...

Do me one favor Snake and add a "to" to my advice concerning the graphic settings, sounds stupid without it.

Anyway, great work mate, as always.

You should put a huge banner on top of your guide:
Iron Gator is not suited for snipers

Snake you forgot the Armored Specialist Ribbon in the possible awards.  It wouldn't be very easy to get but it is possible to get.

Well, duh Although you can get some good snipage in the Hangar Bay. Ive done that loads of times. In fact, with 1 clip of an M95 I got 4 KDA's and 1 kill once

Snake mate, you need to fix that Wiki link, it redirects me to your 4th March update post, lol

Also i noticed in your screenshots you still have that "the game will start when...." to get rid of that type "sv.numplayersneededtostart 1" into the console, though thats a bit late now, it might help others who want to make guides

Ok fellas, this is LAST UPDATE!!!

UPDATES
07 July 2007
  • *NEW* Section and video added for getting the choppers inside the ship (Section 7.13)


With a new PC, that can actually record the game with fraps and not give 3fps whilst recording, Ive put up the final part of the guide that Ive been wanting to add since the start. Basically, a section dedicated to getting the Apache inside the ship with a video showing how it's done.
Its my first BF2 video and its nothing special (no music etc), just showing how it's done - so dont expect anything fancy. Well, other than maxed out graphics...shagged up by youtube

Enjoy

Nice guide, but not worth much as it is nearly ever any iron gator servers. Much less crowded ones

i love flying the apache into the ship for two reasons:  a) scares the shit out the people hiding in the back and b) scares the shit out of my gunner.

tip for all u gunners out there... normally your pilot will allow you to rape infantry by smoothly circling flags, or holding still above a boat, etc. but every once in a while you will get one of those "twitchy" pilots who tries to point the heli nose at every enemy.  this is happens most often with apache pilots due to it's exterme maneuverability.  If you find your pilot constantly shifting to focus on infantry, just hold the gun straight and perfectly still, and fire away.  9 out of ten times, the pilot will basically sweep your gunfire right across the enemy, giving you the kill.  it's much more efficient than trying to fight against the jerky movements of the heli.

Yes, it's me, and yes, it's 2019, yet I've kept this thread in my memory throughout all these years and came back to read it again and again found it useful. The original link is dead but you can read it via the archive - http://web.archive.org/web/201308200521 … or-dummies

Hope y'all doing fine, long live BF2(SF)
