# Foxhound : I seem to be unable to launch countermeasures when I am in a plane.
Key config tells me it is the "X" button. But, I have killed my finger pressing it but no countermeasures ever launch. I re-mapped it to another key, did not help. I remapped it to be on my joystick, that did not help neither.

I seem to be unable to use those but that makes flying completely useless since as soon as I am up in the air a missle is tracking me and I die within 10 seconds.
Do you need to earn it or something? Thats idiotic too but.........I just don't get it.

Anyone?

I don't know if you know this already, but you also have to time it just right. (And Head Hunter is right you have to unlock it first. But it is the first thing you unlock for every vehicle) You have to wait until the missile lock sound is continuous, and what it usually do, is wait like two seconds after that, then pop flares. too soon, and your done. Also fly low and over hills, it should make you less of a target for lock on's.

As headhunter and Killer227 says it has to be unlocked, 300 points needed to unlock (this is the reason its pretty hard to do well in the game when you start playing it so late as everyone has stuff to fuck you up faster then you can say battlefield 3 is shit) What I did after unlocking is test it while still at base, mapping it to a new key like Z is what I did since I use X and C for rudder controls, current flight mapping for mouse and keyboard is fricking stupid.

Soooo just either fly low or do what I did originally, and lose that missile like its a prostitute asking for her money. :-D

Snaking left and right or gaining altitude with after burner then losing all speed and turning seems to do the trick for me.

Dog fighting in Battlefield is perfect, since I'm already used to dog fighting in OFP and ArmA, i can just dominate.

Can we please stick to the topic? Last time I checked this is about BF3, not about case modding in a BF3 vs COD contents.

There may be a new DLC for BF3. It is expected that the announcement will come next week in NEW YORK CITY at an Electronic Arts event. http://www.fudzilla.com/home/item/25824-new-bf3-dlc-announcement-coming

That's a nice little "mod".

BF3 - Now in colour!


I just use it for the colour changes. I switched off all the features but tonemap and technicolour changes and anti-aliasing (otherwise it won't work). And turned the settings in the configuration file down just a little bit (personal preference). Really recommended for those black and white b2k maps.

Lets see how long it takes DICE/EA to remove all links AND tell us there is no modding community in ANY game again.

I wouldnt even touch that! I dont want to be PB banned. I like the game as it is just now
anyways, though apart from the kicks and dc all the time, its about it.

1st - Check The Rules! 2nd - Use The Search!

It doesn't alter any of the source files, and many have reported using it for over a month and have never been kicked/banned or otherwise. I'll be trying it out.

I use it with medium-ish settings, with 2xmsaa. It really does bring out the colour and make everything sharper. Taking away a bit of that horrible blurring feel.

Got to play around with the settings a bit though, to get what's best for you.

also better battlelog:
