America's Army Recon Demo

A bit earlier than anticipated, NVIDIA is the first site to offer downloads of the Recon demo of America's Army: Operations, the free first-person shooter game that was developed by the U.S. Army using the Unreal engine. The Recon demo requires a whopping 203.9 MB download, and offers "four single player basic training missions including a rifle range, obstacle course and weapons course," as well as "six multiplayer missions including a homeland defense operation, urban training, freeing prisoners, and protecting against an act of ecological terrorism." Word from HomeLan Fed is that the login authorization and multiplayer servers are not due to be launched until the original release time of 3:00 AM EDT (midnight PDT) though. Further mirrors can be expected on the official site by that time as well. Update: Mirrors are already online at FilePlanet (registration required) and 3D Gamers.

"so, er what kind of an act of ecological terrorism?

Drilling for oil in an Alaskan nature reserve? "

No, drilling for oil under a nearly barren and totally useless 'nature reserve' isn't a good example.

Try: spiking trees so chainsaws fly back and cut loggers in half. Or forcing a family off their entire property because some trespassing econazi found one little 'endangered' snail somewhere on it. Or the Kyoto Protocol.

Now *that's* ecological terrorism.

Anybody else having problems playing the second set of training missions (the infantry one at Fort Mckinny) I click on it and it gives nothing for the background and the history but then gives something about loyalty then kicks me back to the menu...

Hey DrEvil still don't have anything intelligent to say?
"Taliban sympathiser ? I guess calling you a jackass makes me one of those? dumbass. I got $5 saying your about 12 years old, anyone else wanna take a guess."

See there is no support for Tabibans like you in here kid! I put up some facts & you just put up insults. You know you are 12 year old boy sitting in cave, or just plain dumb. Anyone over the age of 20 can at least put up fact when they disagree with someone but you just spit out insult like a 10 year old school girl who lost her favourite Barbie doll. Grow up kid & get a life leave the PC pop your zits and go out and see the world.

USA forever

80. Very nice Jul 4, 2002, 10:07 changingman
 
I just played a bit of the training (no point as the e-mail hasn't come through with my p/word yet :/). This looks like a very good game. The frontend could do with some work though.

Oh, btw, I downloaded it at the fastest my connection can handle (60kb/s) from a server I never had to pay for. No problems here either

If you bought that Parhelia for 3D gaming I feel for ya. Word is my $200.00+ cheaper Geforce3 Ti200 outperforms your overpriced card. Now if you bought it for 2D or 3D apps then that is a different story......

This game is exellent and runs decent on my old 800Mhz with a Geforce2. However it has some MAJOR problems.

1. The army servers just plain SUCK. I live overseas and and pinging to a US East server yields a 300+ server ping. Now your saying this was ment for US citizens not Europeans. Well get this I am a US citizen and I am in the military.

2. The lack of a dedicated server. There's no way to host a server. So basically We're stuck with playing on the Army servers.

3. The use of Gamespy. We all know it we all hate it. Hopefully All-Seeing-Eye will support this.

The game can be a real good one but they dropped the ball here on the dedicated server and lack of in-game browser

73. I have a question Jul 4, 2002, 06:34 anon@64.174
 
I've seen screenshots of this game with characters with no shadows, the dark circle spot, and full blown out real shadows. I'd have a link to images at gamespot, but they have them locked.

Anyone know why they have some pictures with full character shadows and some don't?

Wow! I just finished the "Shoot the Retreating Iraqi Troops in the Back" mission with a full "Timothy McVeigh" ranking, and now I'm starting to get into the Thief-type "Steal the Anthrax Spores from Fort Detrick" mission. But what I'm looking forward to is the "Slaughter the Afghan Wedding Ceremony" map coming up...

#66 - if you read the above article it says "Word from HomeLan Fed is that the login authorization and multiplayer servers are not due to be launched until the original release time of 3:00 AM EDT (midnight PDT)."

Even in this sace the serevrs are probably being overloaded. Wait until the morning and I'm sure everything will be in better shape.
