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.

28. XBox Entries Jul 3, 2002, 22:59  GreenMarine 
 
No, they are just lazy. Those are default .ini entries in the source .ini that ships with the Unreal engine to licensees. The Unreal engine can run on the XBox and it has its own .ini entries for a few system things and the developers of this game didn't go through and clean out default entries they wouldn't be using.

Too bad we have to wait until midnight to unlock everything. I suspect that by 4am (judging by the first qualifier) all the hard-cores should be done training and online. Oh, And I'll freely admit that I was geeky enough to pull a perfect score on the rifle range. Only the 2nd try, too.

Thats what I like about BN. When the rest of the US is on vacation, there is Frans (not on vacation obviously as he's not a US citizen). Toiling away, making certain that we can d/l this puppy as soon as it is available.

edit - remove my drunken errors (adding more errors of course)

SO do we get to smuggle weapons & cash to dictators, kill democratically elected presidents of foreign states? Or maybe bomb civilians & allies lol!
Enjoy the crappy propaganda kids... this shit is worst than the propaganda that used to come out of the USSR & in 3D!
The US is the best country on earth so why use such sad tactics. Its enough that they use CNN dish out propaganda which cool since nobody watches that crap station. The US should just say it like it is straight up no frills no sugar coating... we rule we do what we want & F*** the rest!
USA forever!!!

Correction: apparently the problem is that the page doesnt have the link to file 11

here is the link that they forgot
http://download.nvidia.com/downloads/Army/Split_files/Army.11

it should be on this page http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=army_download with the rest

Someone confirm this please, the Nvidia link says that file 10 is 13 megs, when in fact it is 19 meg like the rest. I downloaded all the partial files, ran the merge.bat and the result was a 190 meg file which when I try to open, it wont open. It appears as though the fragmented files are corrupt? Can someone confirm?
