America's Army Update

A new version 1.6 of America's Army Operations has been announced as a premium service download on the America's Army Website, where it says: "This Version 1.6 update expands the importance of rules of engagement and teamwork within America's Army due to its introduction of non-combatants in the new 'Radio Tower' non-combatant rescue mission. New functionality such as the addition of projectile penetration and ricochets add increased realism to game scenarios. Version 1.6 also marks the transition of America's Army to the production version of Unreal's version 2110 engine." This paid download is for the full version of the game, and meanwhile, an America's Army patch has appeared on several sites for download, but we have been told the official patch will appear on the official website, and event the developers aren't sure whether this is a beta or not. Here is a quote from Abraxas from IRC: "People, stop asking me about the patch. We only develop the game, we do not distribute. None of the Devs can tell you anything. Obviously, there has been a snafu. The Army is aware of it and is working on the situation." Meanwhile, there is now a mirror of the full version 1.6 download on FileShack (registration required).

Anyway, just an idle rant about their chosen distribution method (and a complaint about this snafu that will undoubtably cause problems for mirror sites, developers and gamers alike).
Seconded. I've spent the better part of the past three hours trying to sort through this mess and find sufficient, reliable info on whether that patch is official or leaked. The conclusion - for the time being - of that "adventure" is in Blue's story above. %):|
