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.

68. Try this site to dl from Jul 4, 2002, 04:29 anon@64.174
 

I always go to 3dgamers.com for anything that's very popular and hard to get, and I never have any problems there, especially like poor fileplanet, you don't even need to sign up at this place. I clicked on their first available dl spot and I'm getting 139k a sec on my dsl right now.

18minutes to go

Anyone else noticed that Fileplanet's page for the download goes out of its way to specifically mention that this is NOT in fact a demo?

So either this site is wrong or FP is...hrm.

to all you people screaming spyware: the world is more idiotic then i once thought.

(extreme sarcasm ahead)

Yes of course, this is spyware.

The army is going to watch you play the game, and monitor the players with the highest score. They will then send 1st Special Forces Operational Detacthment Delta in a black stealth helicoptor to the house of the players with high scores. they will then fast rope down, and do a quick snatch and grab on the target player. They will brainwash him and train him into the ultimate soldier. It is then they will realize that the player/ultimate soldier IS A 12 YEAR OLD ALBINO PALE FACE WHO IS 400 POUNDS OVERWEIGHT WHO SPENDS ALL DAY LONG PLAYING A FREAKING VIDEO GAME!!!!!


That is all

I bet the multiplayer is some crazy secret monitored testing ground, one day a government official is going to show up at your door and say, "excuse me son, is a 'freddakillabilla' here"...

Remember, its only paranoia if they arn't after you...

I had the same problem with an 8500le radeon. Upgrading my drivers, solved the problem.

How do you fix the weird texture bug where you can't see the player or terrain textures? Anyone?

Ya Voodoo was pretty cool man. I had voodoo 1 and voodoo 2 monster then switched to Nvidia with the TNT, which I was very happy with.

Still, I had some great quake2 days on my voodoo and can never forget how much fun it was and pretty it looked. (tear in my eye)

49. "screw nvidia!! no voodoo5 support."

Come on! 3dfx is gone, there is no DirectX 8 drivers for Voodoo cards. Why? The company is gone. Voodoo cards are not supported on any new or future games. Time to buy a new card simple as that. I had a Voodoo 1, 2 Voodoo2's in SLI, a Voodoo3 and a Voodoo5. Sorry to see them go, but make no mistake, they are GONE.

i'm on dial up so what only 24 hours left to go on this fantastic 2.28 k connection i got from nvidia.

what is this problem that people are getting with the textures?
i got a geforce2mx 32 and 850 atholon hoping that i can run this at 800x600 with some good detail.

just a question does the opengl api make the game darker like in Tacops and Unreal.

what's the command for frame rates in this game?

I did indeed have it lock up a few times. 3rd time was the charm though. Who knows...
