hi,

just started playing battlefield 3 on pc. Seems on the very first part, on the train, after shooting the guys, I can't get through the door. nothing comes up on the screen prompting me to remove the gun keeping the door closed..

do I need to restart the level or something??

PRESS THE E KEY.

Indeed, press the "use" key, which by default is E. Sadly, this game's prompts are slightly retarded, the prompts are popping out during cutscenes when you least expect it, and different combinations, it looks like you're playing Mortal Kombat sometimes. It's done amateurishly, at best.

I thought it was press and hold R to pickup the weapon.

There are more than one keys to perform different actions in different situations: E, Space, R, mouse left click, as far as I remember. It's just that the use of such keys is inconsistent throughout the game; it is indicated you press Space, when you actually have to press it repeatedly, or you'll fail in performing the action, for instance. I have no idea why they couldn't assign one key to perform all the interactions within the game?

yes, I can't even get past the grabbing onto the train element with space, 3-4qte's in the first 2mins of gameplay, not for me, I wanted something more BFBC2 esque.

For that, you will have to press Space repeatedly, in fast succession. I kept falling over and over again, because I was just pressing Space key once; I wouldn't have thought DICE could fail at that, but it happens.

I'll just copy and paste what I said on another thread prior:
"On the Pc version I have found that remapping the controls can cause major issues with the quick time events, to the point of being progress halting on the 2nd time around on the train. On my 2nd time around on the train, after kicking the guy out the window and taking his gun, and going to the next window by the door and jumping out, with the controls remapped, I can leap via spacebar still to the next train car, but I will die anyway instead of being prompted to press the next key to climb up the car. Really surprised a bug like this slipped past quality control."

It's the r button

Well i got stuck too in that place so i restarted the level and then it worked well.

Well, I didn't remap any keys, I used the defaults, and still had some pretty major problems with them. Just as you were saying, it's surprising to have such issue with such a long awaited release.

Even before the game freezes your video looks choppy. I don't think your vid card or cpu is up to the job. Try turning down the video settings, lower the resolution, or both.

what I had a problem on was the point of jumping from one train to the other to avoid the explosion. I kept dying despite using the jump key. apparently pressing your jump key and spacebar in tandem (space was where jump was originally mapped to) repeatedly got me past that part. Even though it was only telling me to press jump.

RESOLUTION: The interact key is not what you use to pick up weapons as common sense would tell you. You actually need to use the RELOAD key to pick up guns. Hit reload on that shotgun and it will pick up the gun. It's stupid, I know.

the point of the game is not the single player, think of that as training for multiplayer.

Is that because you can't play multiplayer? also I wouldn't post your email address here.
