even with a cable connection...there is no way in hell to download the file! One site you have to download their own peer-to-peer system to obtain it...and I refuse to add junk on my rig! if it's not a direct download, don't bother! I've been trying to find this file all day! It's nowhere...all the servers are full, the one I was downloading from was only going at 19.1 Kbps and it stopped at 84.7 MBs! What the hell? Can I not download it anywhere? I've tried ftps, but ftps never work with IE 6. I'm so pissed, I'm just glad I got to see my girl before going to sleep...she melts my anger into love and I don't care about the file anymore. I'll get it later when it's on a nice server, i.e. nvidia's mirrors..very fast!!

*cough*


And people think download resuming programs are useless once you get a fast connection.

Good memory Red Dog, I loved GR + exps. but Im hardcore RavenShield at the moment, just checked world ladder, still in about 120th place in the world

I did play AA when it first came out, was a little buggy, namely granade damage. The other problem I had, was none of my clan mates played it either. Im in a new clan now, and I think most of them like all these types of games, so I might see if some of them want to play some of this also.

I just hate the fact that I have to start from the start again

This new patch is very worth it; I just completed the first SF training level (got 86% on the test, and guessed on half ), and that level was so detailed I got an average of 20fps -- I get 40fps on the still-very-detailed marksmanship training level! You can also see something really funny if you find the vending machine and look at the soldier there for a minute or so .

I'm working on the SF Escape and Evade mission right now, and it is quite a challenge.

(I used BitTorrent to download the patch, and I finished downloading it 2-3 hours after the patch first came out; I averaged 40-50kBps. BitTorrent excels in situations like these, when demand overwhelms normal download sites.)

Yay, just f*cking great. I paid $5.95 to download the damn thing from Akamai last night, then find that my game account password is somehow now invalid.

So I go to the website; cant log in there either. Every suggestion theyve posted involves sending an email with a temporary password to the email address I orignally signed up with over a year ago. Problem is, my email address has changed...so I cant get the temp password. So I email the "broken account" address, and of course no response yet.

If they planned to f*ck up everyone's accounts, they should at least have set up an option to log in to your account online USING YOUR USUAL PASSWORD to change the email address and/or password!

Ive never complained about this game since its free, but the only reason I picked Akamai (their official download partner) was because I wanted to: 1) play it last night! 2) Avoid all the problems above posters have mentioned.

Well I downloaded it from boomtown.net at 71.2 kbps last night...full client. Too bad America's Army has their authenication servers down...so no can log in to play!! Guess we'll have to wait till they're back up.

CWB you should be able to log in here an reactivate your account.

http://login.americasarmy.com/

that happened to me also. actualy I think it happened to nearly everyone when the new site came up.

IGx89, im gonna go check out that soldier near the vending machine. lol

Smokey AA has great clan potential because its an awesome game thats free.

everyone can afford it, lol.


that escape and evade mission is a pain in the rump.

the only thing i wish aa had is a benchmark and in game voice comms.

(voice comms are coming soon they say)

Nope, no joy. The only thing I can find is that you request a new temp password be emailed to you to get into your account. I cant do that since my email address has changed! Theyre sending the emails to my old box, which is now defunct.

I cant believe they dont have a temp site set up to handle this bullsh*t. Id be happy to update my email address, change password, etc., if I could just log in for a second USING MY OWN DAMN PASSWORD!

They change it without notice and wont let me back in? WTF? Assh*les.
