Hi all, many sorries in advance if these are oft-repeated questions, but I'll be darned if I can find the answer anywhere...

1. How do the points work in multiplayer, in particular for ground-pounding? Last night I managed to bomb and destroy a bridge objective in a map (quite nicely, too, if I do say so myself) yet got zero points for it. I've also torpedoed ships, for no points. Do you ever get points? Or is this all a server/map settings thing? Do you have to RTB to get the points?

2. How do you bring up info on remaining targets? On the fantastic green(something) server, there are instructions that don't work for me: ">target>red>" I just get errors with that.. is there something I'm missing?

Sorry again for the daft questions, but if someone could help out, I'd be mighty grateful.. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

You'll find that you don't get credited with points until you RTB, switch off and "Refly"

You also don't get points for objects that are default objects on the map. Bridges and buildings that are part of the map before the mission designer starts to work his magic are among the "no score" items.
