Not that I know of, there are some guys who have spent time to address certain aspects of the game, that are a little more detailed ask around in the arenas or you might get some replies in here.

Airwolf...unless you really do not have the patience to read through it...this is what I read before getting into an arena:

http://www.hitechcreations.com/frindex.html

Just don't worry about the "configuring an arena" section.

The one thing I don't remember seeing in there is how to customize the views for your hatswitch...takes some trial and error but once you set up the hatswitch to move your views from point to point, you can use the arrow keys to adjust and use F-10 to save...that is if you're using a hatswitch and not TrackIR.

First off, Welcome Airwolf. :salute 

There is a quick reference page that you probably found and printed.  We also have "dot commands" that are typed in the radio buffer that you bring up by hitting the forward slash key (the question mark key).  Those dot commands are used for a variety of things.  Sending salutes, finding squad members in different arenas, setting bomb salvos, squelching players, etc. etc.  There are a couple dozen of them.

You can find a great deal of information on this website:  http://trainers.hitechcreations.com/ or www.netaces.org

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have in this forum or in the help section.  There are many trainers and players that are very willing to help out. 

Good luck.

Much of the information is on the trainers page.  I like Hammer's site becaue he had pictures of the skins we have.  When I started, this site was the only one available to new players.  It was a good place to start.
