    Hi everyone, we're investigating these problems and will be issuing a patch next week which may solve some people's performance issues and will address some significant bugs that players have reported.
    So I guess enough people reported they were having performance issues. So that's good.

    I just fire whenever I see the icon in the corner. Seems to work well for me, the only time they start to notice me is if I kill a group of guys in the wrong order and they start noticing bodies.

    Also, tripmines + rocks = way more fun than it should be.

    It's like the N-word and the C-word had a baby, and it was raised by all the bad words for Jews.

    Mines in multi player seem like they are a 50/50 chance to work, though that might just be lag related. Had many occasions where the enemy walked right over a trip line and blasted me, rather than blowing up into a splatter like they should.

    Also, way too many times to count where a teammate comes up on my mine and shoots it. Guy, that is not helping us defend the entrance if you shoot it.

    I have to say I'm quite surprised that this game even exists. Definitely going on my list.

    Yeah, you're not alone - I have a very good system, and the game runs at ~60fps most of the time, but when big firefights open up it drops EXTREMELY low for a few seconds, picks up, drops again, all while I am viewing the same things on the screen. It's obviously not a PC issue but something with the game. It hasn't killed my enjoyment or anything, but it's definitely there. Glad they're working on it.

    spare your face the razor, because no one's gonna spare the time for you.

    RE Demo level;

    You can do the usual shoot charge when aarmored car passes but thats a bit boring. Mix it up a bit. Why not place dynamite along the side of the road in strategic places so that when you shoot the charge, not only will the armored car blow up but so too will the trucks thanks to the chain reaction explosions from the dynamite. Finish it in one shot! Alternatively, shoot the charge and then as the guards are hopping off the trucks, shoot the grenade on the guards webbing exploding it and killing the target and four others.

    ?.jpg

    you can even kill the target through non-snipery methods. Just place a trip mine next to the pillar thats on the same side of the road as the truck you have to rig for the explosive. The target runs behind it and if its mined.... well, you get the idea. I'm sure there's more crazier methods of doing things but those are the ones I'd found.

    So all I hear about is castrating Nazis. However, it was my impression that at some point in the game, as this is the final days of the war and everybody is, shall we say, looking ahead, I would also be encountering Russian enemies. Do I or do I not also get to castrate commies?

    A few decent shots pulled off in Sniper Elite mode. Not the best of the best, but I found them pleasing. And some general WTFery, captioned for your amusement(hopefully).

    That part wouldn't be a problem if the spawning system in this game wasn't retarded. You can be looking right at the area where they show up 2 seconds prior to when they spawn in, and there is nobody there, but as soon as you move 1-2 steps over past the magic SPAWN MORE ENEMIES INVISIBLE LINE, there they are.

    And I'm not talking about in a darkened room of a building where it's reasonable to believe they were sneaking through other rooms either. I am talking about on top of a 100 foot high catwalk with no cover/concealment to speak of on top of it, and no ladders or rooftop access points near by, then BAM suddenly I'm getting sniped by a guy from said catwalk. Yeah, that mission pissed me off.

    Definitely. I think I was getting pretty close to a rage uninstall when I finally beat that part. The best is when you get instakilled because two snipers happened to shoot you at exactly the same time.

    Happened to me, too, and I was cussing up a storm. Finally seeing the achievement popup is the only thing that stopped me from smashing my face through my own desk.

    Also, after all that, the next 2 missions were so easy as to be laughable. And I'm slightly upset at myself for not having fraps running on the end. You'll know when you get there yourself, but

    This game needs to be awarded best comedy game of all time. I took a shot at a guy taking cover behind some sandbags and got rewarded with the kill cam. I sat back and watched the bullet waiting for the glorious skull shattering headshot only to see it go "ding" off the guy's helmet. I just blinked and had a "...wait...what?" moment. The bullet then took off on its new trajectory and took some poor fucker's face off who was behind and to the left of the first guy.

    I enjoyed the game but I think if they'd put some more effort into the spawning system (or even not had it at all, and had some global AI that governed all the troops without having to spawn them every five metres), I'd've enjoyed it more. As it is, I'm not going to bother replaying it.

    They should have put an internal recording/screengrab system. There are just too many random shots that surprise and stun me.

    imagining playing on sniper elite difficulty and being awarded with a killcam for a huge distance shot.... Only to have the bullet drop short about 5 meters and ricochet OFF THE GROUND in to the guys chest. I mean.... Of the ground, thats insane. It was two days ago and I'm still grinning.

    if you insist upon de-bollocking the revolution, go ahead, but be aware that the penalty for shooting a comrade's ball bag is death when international socialism catches on.

    I've had some pretty fun kills too:

    bounced a round off the upper metal part of his rifle only to have it bounce up into his eye socket, out through the top of his skull, ricochet off the inside of the helmet, out the back of his skull then a final bounce off the inside of the helmet again heading towards the ground. Magic bullet theory, indeed.

    lined up a shot right through a red's moustache, only to watch the bullet keep on keeping on into some poor other soldier's clavicle.

    those shots through the scope of another sniper NEVER ever get old.

    Also, I'm pretty sure on that mission with the bridge there's a spot where you can line up an easy quad kill, but I haven't done it yet :(

    I just blew a Russian sniper's fingers off. I wasn't sure at first, but the X-Ray had him missing 2 digits.

    After reading the various stories, and checking out the screenshots, I was forced to go and get SE2 today.

    Don't regret it for a moment.

    My only niggle is the occasional teleporting soldier who appears behind me, yet mysteriously fail to trip the mines and tripwire I have littering the approach to me...

    Apart from that, it's great fun - just got the achievement for 50 headshots, and the distance one isn't far away.

    As fun as killing mans in, I find I really love killing tanks with my rifle. Pretty glaring design flaw...

    I'm playing on Marksman, then gonna replay it on Sniper Elite.

    I played the demo most times on Sniper Elite though, it is a very satisfying mode, and you get more random shots like through the knees than if you have the diamond to guide you.

    Well, my initial playthrough was on super easy baby mode. Worked my way through on the next one up, and have finally settled on Sniper Elite. The Gewehr 43 is so boss! I even got a 3 for 1 on Sniper Elite in the Russian command post! I was prone at the end of the hall, saw a guy run out, lined up my shot and then the planets aligned... Kill cam, watch the bullet go, first shot hits guy one dead center of the face, bullet keeps going "nice!" guy two takes it through the chin, bullet still going "OMG no way..." guy three takes it through the neck. FUCK. YES.

    Also, you'd think I'd be tired of the convoy mission, since I played it a million times in the demo, but its my favorite mission in the full game. I love setting up my tripmine, land mine and dynamite in various places to see what I can do. I've perfected a set up to where I can finish the whole ambush in ~3-4 shots. And two of those shots are for the explosive charges :D

    It's like the N-word and the C-word had a baby, and it was raised by all the bad words for Jews.

    Not to ruin things, but there's probably as good a chance that the game is a bit rough around the edges at times as that being a deliberate thing.

    So far my favorite 2-for-1 shots have all been single target attempts that magically happen to take out other people. On the museum level, I made a long shot down the street at someone's head... and as the kill cam closed in I could see another soldier running across behind the first guy. Just as the bullet slammed into the first soldier's face, the second guy (in exquisite slow motion) turns his head to look in my direction, and the spinning shell erupted from the back of the first guy's head and caught the second right in the eye as he turned. So. Fucking. Cool.

    I've played the demo of this, and I must say it is so much fun. My main concern is how long the game is, and when will the bullet cam get old haha.

    I'm not sure if its worth $50 because it seems like the sniping is top notch, but the ai and spawning leaves much to be desired, has anyone played coop? Wondering if this would be a good game to fraps coop or is the multiplayer not so great
