View Full Version : Demo help needed - distract with the spy

9th Sep 2003, 17:47
I cannot figure out how to distract with the spy. The help says I have to left-click on the soldier I want to distract. I tried the lieutenant and officer uniforms but if I left-click on a soldier then the spy goes to him and happens nothing...

thanks for the help in advance

I assume that you're talking about Commandos 2? Press the hotkey "s" then click on one of the soldiers.

Is there a key I am supposed to use to Distract the enemy? The help file says all I have to do is to left-click on an enemy to distract them, but all my Spy does is walk to the location. Using the "s" key doesn't work either. Am I missing something simple here?

THX!!!!! if you (or anyone else for that matter) could be so kind as to explain to the rest of us out there who doesnt understand how to distract soldiers, how to do this, since the pic at least didnt help me at all, except showing what icon i should have, this thread would actually be of use to more than 1 person. In advance, thx for your cooperation

Just so this thread finally has an answer, in Commandos 3, to Distract an enemy with the Spy, you have to select the Spy and then right-click on what I think is called the Action button on his interface. This is the same button that will show whether or not he is wearing an enemy uniform or not (you may see a coat hanger on this button). Just right-click on it and the other available options (including Distract) will appear and you can click on it. This works the same was as how you choose a weapon. If you right-click on the weapon button then you can select between the Fist and the Syringe. Sorry if this is vague but the manual doesn't seem to give an "official" name for what the button is. Once you have Distracted an enemy, you may be able to give them additional orders. To do this, click on the Distract button again and now you can click on an area in the game window and the enemy soldier will look where you click.
