Release Notes (Version 2.1)

========================================
What's new
========================================


Character 'Ragdoll' Physics
------------------------------------------------------------

New in this edition of America's Army is the implementation of the Karma Physics Engine. This new feature applies real life physics to all player characters in the game. This produces real-time unique animations for each character during gameplay. These unique animations are calculated using real life physics as well as many other factors including, the gun/bullet type used, the distance from a frag grenade, the damage location on the body, etc.

New U.S. Weapon - M136 AT4
------------------------------------------------------------

The M136 AT4 is the Army's primary light anti-tank weapon. The M136 AT4 is a recoilless rifle used primarily by Infantry Forces for engagement and defeat of light armor. The recoilless rifle design permits accurate delivery of an 84mm High Explosive Anti-Armor warhead, with negligible recoil. The M136 AT4 is a lightweight, self-contained, anti-armor weapon consisting of a free-flight, fin-stabilized, rocket-type cartridge packed in an expendable, one-piece, fiberglass-wrapped tube. The M136 AT4 is man-portable and is fired from the right shoulder only. The round of ammunition is self-contained in a disposable launch tube. The system weighs 15 pounds and can be utilized effectively with minimal training. The Opfor equivalent is the RPG-7.

New 'Tournament Mode'
------------------------------------------------------------

This version of America's Army features new tournament mode features, which are accessible either via the command line or a GUI interface. It will include an adjustable pre-match warm-up period with an in-game notification that the match is beginning. The time remaining until the tournament start is also displayed on the score screen, as well as in-game reminders, and a final 10-second countdown.

Tournament Mode

The new tournament mode has the following features:
- The ability to launch tournament mode via the command line
- Tournament Squad Leaders with special permissions
- A pre-match warm-up time which does not count toward the tournament score.
- Score screen is displayed at the end of the match, and the match does not automatically restart.
- Time until the tournament starts is displayed on the score screen.
- Messages remind the players how much time is remaining before the tournament begins.
- Ten second countdown reminder before tournament starts.
- Tournament and warm-up start messages.
- The ability to control tournament functionality via ini file settings

New Admin functionality:
- The ability to set/remove Tournament Squad Leaders

New Tournament Squad Leader or Admin abilities:
- Restart the tournament when the tournament is over or during play
- Force the start of the tournament
- Force the start of the warm-up period
- Force the start of the tournament with a 10 second count down
- Mute a players on same team or whole team
- Place players on team
- Place players on specific fire teams in specific classes
- Set the Tournament start time

Generic Steps for Starting a Game in Tournament Mode:

1. Set the ArmyOps.ini file settings for the tournament.

In the [AGP_Gameplay.AGP_GameTeamObjective] section set the following values:
- TournamentWarmupTime=1
- TournamentStartTime=2

TournamentWarmupTime will be the number of minutes to wait until starting the warmup period. TournamentStartTime will be the number of minutes to wait until starting the actual tournament. Make any changes to the standard roundspermatch and matchesbeforecycle variables as desired.

* NOTE: There also exist a preset tournament configuration file called servertournament.ini located in the 'System' folder.

2. Launch the server in tournament mode.

This is done by launching the server with the Tournament or LanTournament command line flags. An example command line would be:

server LANTOURNAMENT pipeline.aao log=server.log

* NOTE: There also exist a tournament server batch file called RunServerTournament.bat that contains a sample command line for running a typical tournament server. This file is located in the 'System' folder.

A server launched with the TOURNAMENT flags will be set up for internet play. A server launched with the LANTOURNAMENT flag will be set up for lan play.

3. The two leaders of both teams must connect to the server.

4. Log into the server as an Admin.

5. Admin designates the Tournament Squad Leaders for each team.

One player from each team must be designated as a Tournament Squad Leader. Select the Tournament tab from the in-game menu. This displays a list of all of the players currently on the server. To add the player as a tournament squad leader first highlight their name in the list. Then select the team to add the player to and click the Add button. Then click the Set button next to the team leader section to set the player as a team leader.

6. Squad Leaders add team members to their team.

Once the admin has set the Tournament Squad leaders, they are able to perform their tournament commands. First they must select the members for their team. To add a player to a team first highlight the name of the player to add to the team. Then select the team to add the player to and click the Add button. Repeat until all team members are added to teams. (Note: admins cannot be added to teams).

7. Squad Leaders assign team members their fire teams and classes.

To add assign a player first highlight the name of the player to be assigned. Then select the appropriate unit slot from the drop down box (Squad Leader, Fireteam Alpha, Fireteam Bravo etc.). Then select the appropriate class within the unit from the drop down box (Rifleman, Grenadier, etc.). Finally, click the Add button to place the player in the specified slot.

All players should be assigned to a Fireteam and class.

8. The Warm-up period begins automatically.

Players can play normally and warm up during this time. Warm up has no bearing on the score of the tournament. This time may also be used to verify that all players are on the correct team in the correct classes.

9. The Tournament begins automatically.

A countdown will notify the players that the tournament is starting. Once the “Tournament Starting” message appears and the round restarts, the tournament has begun.

10. Tournament Ends, Tournament Score is displayed.

When all rounds have been completed and the tournament is over, a screen will appear displaying the winner of the tournament and the final score. This screen will continue to be displayed until the tournament is restarted.


Advanced Tournament Options

Admins and Tournament Squad leaders with the proper permissions can perform certain tasks which control the flow of the tournament. The normal flow of a tournament is automatic, however these actions may be performed if the normal flow needs to be altered. The actions are performed by clicking the corresponding button in the Tournament Tab of the in-game menu.

RestartTournament - Restarts a tournament during play or after the match is over. The tournament will start over and all scores and values are reset.

StartTournament - Forces the start of the tournament.

Warmup - Forces the start of the warm-up period.

CountDown - Forces the start of the tournament with a 10 second count down.

Depending upon the values set the in the ArmyOps.ini file, Tournament Squad Leaders may be able to perform additional commands. Admins may always perform these commands. The following are some of these commands:

tournament SetStartTime newstarttime

This command will set the time in minutes until tournament start to the specified newstarttime value.

Advanced configuration file (.ini file) settings:

These settings are listed in the following format:

New Stryker Armored Vehicle
------------------------------------------------------------

This version of America's Army introduces the Army's new Interim Armored Vehicle, a.k.a. the Stryker. The Stryker vehicle is currently implemented as a stationary vehicle with a fully functioning .50 cal turret usable by the player. The Stryker's turret is accessible from inside the vehicle and has full zoom capability. These new Stryker vehicles are available in the "SF Arctic" mission. The Stryker turret zoom in/out keys are defaulted to the MouseWheelUp and MouseWheelDown keys, however they can be changed through the settings menu.

New Multiplayer Missions
------------------------------------------------------------

Included in this version of America's Army are two new multiplayer missions. Both of these new missions are Special Forces missions containing both the Special Forces playable Soldier class, as well as the Indigenous Forces playable class.

- SF Village:

Insurgent forces have acquired multiple weapons caches and are holding up in an abandoned desert town. A Special Forces A-Team, along with friendly Indigenous Forces, must infiltrate their position in town and seize these weapons caches in order to degrade enemy capability to arm insurgent forces.

- SF Arctic:

Coalition forces transporting arms and ammunition struck an improvised explosive device (IED), immobilizing one of their vehicles on a high-altitude mountain road. A Special Forces A-Team, along with friendly Indigenous Forces must now protect their essential materials and supplies from an assaulting resistance force who wishes to capture those supplies. The Stryker vehicles accompanying the supply convoy have taken defensive positions to help defend the immobilized convoy.

New Realistic Suns Including Lens Flare
-------------------------------------------------------------

Sun lens flares portray the real-life effects that you see when looking toward the direction of the sun. Their introduction has a really exciting impact on gameplay and in a variety of ways.

When looking in the direction of the sun, this has a slight-to-moderate impact on your character's vision. Sun flares add a much greater immersiveness to the game, brightening-up your gamma momentarily. Needless to say, sun flares have a much greater impact on certain levels/ missions. They are not limited to SF-only maps and are retro-fitted to previous/existing maps including Radio Tower and SF CSAR.

Class Selection Page Enhancements
------------------------------------------------------------

New in this version are 2 new enhancements to the in-game class selection page:

- 'SWAP' feature

Players can now request to swap weapons/classes with your teammates simply by hitting the 'Swap' button next to his name in the in-game class selection page. Once your teammate acknowledges your request to swap classes, your positions will automatically switch.

- Weapons Mod Set Quick-Select

Players can now select their weapon mods set directly from the class selection in-game menu rather than having to go back to the main user interface.

New RPG and AT4 3D Ironsights with Adjustable Range Settings
------------------------------------------------------------

Both the RPG-7 and the M136 AT4 have new 3D ironsights in this latest version of America's Army. These weapons also both have the new functionality of 'adjustable range settings' based on the distance to target. Players can now adjust the ironsights based on the range to target, and then simply aim directly at the target when firing. The RPG/AT4 can be set to the following ranges: 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 meters. The range adjustment keys are defaulted to the MouseWheelUp and MouseWheelDown keys, however they can be changed through the settings menu.

New 'Auto Slow Mode' Toggle for Zooming
------------------------------------------------------------

New in this version is new functionality for toggling 'auto slow mode' for zooming. You can now go to slow mode and raise your sights by pressing the zoom key instead of pressing two different keys (zoom and slow mode keys). This new feature allows automatic switching your player to ‘slow walk mode’ while zoomed in and auto-switching back to ‘fast-walk’ when they un-zoom. There is an option added to the settings menu to toggle between this new system and the old system.

New 'Combat Reload' Including 'Plus One' loading
------------------------------------------------------------

When a player has an applicable weapon and reloads with a non-empty magazine, they now retain the round in the chamber and the magazine that was removed is decremented 1 round. With proper timing this also allows for a faster reload time as the player's animation will not have to clear the chamber and tap the forward assist with a round still in the chamber.

New Alpha-Spectate Enhancement
------------------------------------------------------------

New in this version is an enhancement to regular spectating mode. When spectating a player in 3rd person, the player's chararacter will now become transparent as your camera position comes closer to the player character model. This prevents graphical clipping and allows the spectator to focus on the action surrounding this player's character.

New Demo/Kiosk Mode
------------------------------------------------------------

New in this version of America's Army is a Demo/Kiosk mode. This 'Demo Mode' allows for the game to run demos either at the press of a button or after a customizable set time limit. This demo mode allows for the gameplay to be demonstrated without having internet connectivity. Player created demos can be used in this demo mode as well.

* NOTE: If you enable 'Demo Mode', you restart the game for this setting to take effect.


Extras Included

The Belgacom one will reject you if the user cap is full. The planet Mirror won't be up for a few hours because it updates every 6 hours. And the FileFront one does work, make sure you don't have pop-ups diabled or a browser that does it

Both the RPG-7 and the AT-4 have new adjustable 3D ironsights in this latest version of America's Army. These weapons both have the new functionality of 'adjustable range settings' based on the distance to target. The RPG/AT4 can be set to the following ranges: 100, 200, 300, 400, and 500 meters.

New 'Tournament Mode':
This version of America's Army features new tournament mode features, which are accessible either via the command line or a GUI interface. These include an adjustable pre-match warm-up period with an in-game notification that the match is beginning. The time remaining until the
tournament start is also displayed on the score screen, as well as in-game reminders, and a final 10-second countdown.

New Tournament Squad Leader or Admin abilities:
-Restart the tournament when the tournament is over or during play
- Force the start of the tournament
- Force the start of the warm-up period
- Force the start of the tournament with a 10 second count down
- Mute a players on same team or whole team
- Place players on team
- Place players on specific fire teams in specific cl*****es
- Set the Tournament start time

New Demo/Kiosk Mode:
New in this version of America's Army is a Demo/Kiosk mode. This 'Demo Mode' allows for the game to run demos either at the press of a button or after a customizable set time limit. This demo mode allows for the gameplay to be demonstrated without having internet connectivity. Player created demos can be used in this demo mode as
well.

Two New Maps:
- SF Arctic
- SF Village

Other Additions:
- Bullet/Explosion decals on terrain
- Display as OpFor option for Spinny Weapon Weapon Mod page
- Added locational damage for projectiles. Players no longer take global damage from getting hit with
projectiles. They now take damage based on the speed of the projectile and the area of the body hit. For instance a player hit in the head with an RPG round will now die, but a hit to the arm would not be fatal.
- Added delayed shell ejection. Weapons with delayed shell ejection (M203, M24, Mos, BS1 etc.) will now eject spent shells. Bolt action weapons now correctly eject shells when working the bolt.
- Added America's Army Europe (NATO) Server icon
- Server Browser Filters: PunkBuster, America's Army Europe (NATO)
- Controls Options Setting: "Auto Walk Zoom"
- Audio Setting: "Use Default Driver"
- Player Count is displayed next to each team (*****ault and Defense)
- Smooth zoom transitions for 3D sights and 2D ironsights
- code-based Weapon Cyclic rate control for smoother weapon animations
- Added a folder for demos.
- Player Start: IF Advanced Marksman (VSS Vintorez Sniper)
- Server will now re-authenticate itself at the end of every match.
- New Arctic IF player textures.
- Added a dialog box that asks if you want to enable PB the first time you run the game
- Added turret death message
- SF Sandstorm: added new animated palm trees and louder ambient wind sounds
- IRC in-game chat enhanced with new text characters and colored text.
- Adjusted the Ak74 iron sight position to provide a better sight picture and reduce model "jitter"
-Binoculars no longer breathe cycle
-Improved team swapping. Will now fulfill players change team requests better

…and much more, so head on over to the downloads section and get a copy today!

When downloading from FileFront, make sure your donwload manager (e.g. Download Accelerator)(If you have a download manager) doesn't download in accelerated mode. If it does, the download won't work.

I found out (after downloading this patch through FileFront with Download Accelerator in "Normal Mode"wink that this file is damaged by FileFront. It simply doesn't work. I recommend downloading it from another mirror, e.g. nZone (nVIDIA's game zone) at http://www.nzone.com

 #32 - Ok, I'm getting it from nZone. - 06-09-2004 at 11:26

Yes, nZone can be a little slow... But you'll get the download finished. It took me 2 hours to download from nZone and 3 hours to download from FileFront.... And at least the Nzone download worked...
