    Anybody know of a BT tracker? 316MB’s definitely hefty enough to warrant it.

    For a download that size http is not exactly ideal……

    I know this may sound daft, but am I correct in thinking that this is a multiplayer game only?

    As I have no problem with this, I regulary have times when I have no net connection, and like to play a few games, So I don’t want to get addicted to this ganme, then find out I can only play it on line.

    Also these online multiplayer games are fine, just you get youre ass kicked or shouted at if you do not know the game, and have to practice online (also it costs a lot, when you have to pay local telphone calls for youre online usage)

    Maybe we should use the edonkey network and put the file on it.

    That will save transfer costs for the mirrors.

    “Because it doesn’t say so on any of the documentation for the game, we feel compelled to point out that the life of a real Army infantryman can conceivably end in a painful, gruesome death.”

    I am merely relaying opinion. I am not attempting to flame the US Army or its recruiting habits, rather I am raising awareness to the simple fact that it is a game, albeit realistic. Its not real life. I am not military personell and cannot vouch for the pseudo realism presented in this game, so if an Army infantryman/personell/boot camp director/et. al. could elaborate on how accurate this game is, from an unbiased point of view (IE not a developer/directly related to the project’s development) it would present much to a fruitful debate. Please be senseable, as we are all gamers; first and foremost interested in having fun, and learning from others’ expierences.

    I have a radeon 7500. The game runs but I get the same problem as with Unreal Tournament 2003:
    The graphics are completly messed up. I know it is recommended to use an NVIDIA but I can’t really change the card on my laptop so if anyone could tell me how to get the 3d rendering working for these games I’d be very pleased.

    I have the same problem in linux that I had with this game in windows the server list is empty and I can’t figure out how to get a list. Granted I haven’t looked too hard, but you shouldn’t have to.

    I am extremely happy the Linux version is out.
    However, it is slower than the Windows version on the same box.

    I dual-boot with Win2k, and Redhat 9.
    I have the following hardware:
    AMD Athlon 1900+ cpu
    512 MB ddr ram (pc2100)
    Geforce 4 Ti 4600
    (rest of hardware doesn’t matter)

    I run AA:O at 1600×1200, because that’s the only way to get the full list of players.

    I am averaging 20 FPS in Linux, 40 FPS in Win2k.
    I am still glad it’s out, but not sure whay the difference. Tribes 2 on my gamebox is 40% faster in Linux than in Windows.

    Verifying archive integrity… All good.

    Signal caught, cleaning up

    Anybody has an idea ?

    Thanks, Arnaud

    Did you guys tried to make a 360 (or even more?) turn? I tried different systems and always ended up with somewhat around 180 degrees. This is very annoying since you cannot fully turn around and have to “readjust” your view field with the cursor keys. Anyone else seen this? Thanx.
