    MineSweepers & Land Mines
    The mine detector (and the German Minensuchgerat) can be used to plant land mines in appropriate terrain. When the player is standing still over sand, dirt, gravel, snow and grass using the primary fire button will cause a land mine to be placed. Within three seconds the land mine will be buried and undetectable by enemy forces. Players with the mine detector equipped will be able to detect buried enemy land mines. These land mines will become un-buried so that allies can see them and avoid stepping on them. A player with an equipped mine detector will be able to remove it (and add a land mine to their own ammo count) by being close enough to the land mine and pressing the secondary fire button while aimed at the land mine. Players who step on an enemy land mine will reveal (un-bury) the land mine. Only when the player steps off the land mine will it explode. Any player (whether they have the mine detector equipped or not) will defuse a landmine after standing still on it for 15 seconds. In a Free-For-All mode game, placed land mines are hostile to every player besides the one to placed the land mine. In all other modes of gameplay the land mines are only hostile to the opposing team. Buried land mines are vulnerable to being set-off by the explosions of grenades, bazookas and other land mines. Players can use these weaspons to make sure a passage-way is clear of landmines. A player can only have eight(8) landmines at most placed on a map. An attempt to place any more landmines will remove the oldest landmine still active on a map. If a mine detector using player switches weapon classes or teams (in a non-FFA game mode) then all the mines that they've placed in a map will vanish.
    Improving Gameplay Performance
    Some machines will benefit from experimenting with your video/sound options: - From the Main Menu choose the "Options" menu signified by some electronic equipment towards the left side on the table. Then select the "Video" menu, select "Texture Detail" and choose "LOW". - Also from the "Video" menu uncheck the "WALL DECALS" check box. This will prevent the game from creating bullet marks on walls and should improve performance. - Try reducing your video resolution to 640x480 or even 512x384 in your "Video" menu. The lower the resolution, the easier it is for your computer to run the game. - From the "Video" menu you can try lowering your color depth from 32 to 16 bit. - Video cards with less than 64MB Video memory cannot set texture detail to high and texture color depth to 32 bit simultaneously. These cards can get very poor performance at times, so lower your texture detail and/or lower your texture depth to 16 bit. - From the "Advanced" menu under the "Options" menu try turning the "SHADOWS" down to "simple" or "none". Note that on some machines setting to Complex will cause your frame rate to drop by up to one half. - In Advanced Video Options you can change your View Model. This allows one to choose how much of their own player model is shown. NONE means player's arm and weapon will not appear. GUN ONLY means the gun and not the arms of Sgt Baker will appear. FULL means that you will see both Sgt Baker' hands and the weapon he is holding during gameplay. The less of Sgt Baker that is showing, the faster the game should run. - If you are using the Nvidia GeForce chipsets, it is recommended that you set your Digital Vibrance setting to low or medium dependent on preference. By doing so, there is much more of a contrast to the colors which, in turn, adds a lot to the ambience. Results: the lighting really pops out and adds increased production value. You can set your Digital Vibrance by doing the following: -Right click on your desktop -Choose Properties -Choose Settings -Choose Advanced -Choose Color Correction -Digital Vibrance is located at the top of the Color Correction box The best results were viewed by setting this on low.
    Troubleshooting
    Windows XP -If you are using Windows XP, you must have administrator rights to install and run Medal of Honor Allied Assault Breakthrough Demo. If you have administrator rights, and wish to give a "limited user" administrator rights, you can do this in "User Accounts" section of the Windows XP Control Panel. Video Card Drivers -Some video card drivers do not support OpenGL correctly. Typical problems that may occur with these drivers include: - Crashing on starting up - Crashing when changing video resolutions - Corrupted textures - Garbage artifacts on screen - Unexpected bright flashing on screen - Unusually slow performance. The solution is to go to your video card manufacturer's website and download updated drivers for your card. It is highly recommended that, given an option, you download and install Microsoft-certified (WHQL) drivers. -Video Resolution of 1600x1200 A resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels is not fully supported and has been found to have problems with various video cards. If the game crashes you can run in safe mode and adjust your resolution back to a stable and desirable setting. -Video Resolution of 1152x864 A resolution of 1152 x 864 pixels has been found to have problems with various video cards. In this resolution the program may appear to be running in a windowed application. If this is unacceptable please adjust your resolution back to a stable and desirable setting. -Dual Monitors Dual monitors are not supported. Disabling the secondary video card will allow the game to run with dual monitors. Sound Card Drivers -Diamond Monster Sound MX 400 How to fix the MX 400 for use by Medal of Honor Allied Assault: 1) Exit from Medal of Honor Allied Assault if you are running the game. 2) Open up the "Diamond Monster Sound" utility from the toolbar; this is a small red and white icon near the clock. 3) Make sure the "Enable DirectSound Acceleration" checkbox is off. 4) Click on the "Apply And Exit" button. You should be able to run Medal of Honor Allied Assault without a problem.
    Other Issues
    Multiplayer: -The IPX Protocol is not supported, only TCP/IP is. -Players can, on rare occasion, turn invisible in multiplayer. You may see another player's model appear over a spawn point stuck in mid-stride. That player will be able to move around and will appear invisible to you although he may be visible to other players. Simply disconnect and re-connect to the server to fix this. Keyboard Controls: -Some PC keyboards cannot recognize certain combinations of 3 or more simultaneously pressed keys. This is an inherent problem unrelated to Medal of Honor Allied Assault Breakthrough Demo. Advanced Console Commands from the Advanced Options menu: -By default the advanced console will not be available unless the option is checked in the "Options" menu. From this console you will be able to make advanced console commands. The normal console is active by default and allows you to post messages to everyone else in multiplayer. Listen Servers (non-dedicated servers) in Multiplayer -There is a known issue where the player on the server may become invisible. This occurs most frequently on a Free For All type game. GeForce FX Driver Version 4523 -Fog does not appear correctly with driver version 4523. Installing a newer or older driver will fix this problem.
