Our goal is to tighten up the game, increase performance and reduce the
size of the installers. We improved the frame rate a great deal in this
release. Some people have reported as much as a 40% increase - although
performance varies based upon your specific system setup.
The new Instant Action mode of America’s Army allows you to quickly
jump into the AA action without the need to complete training first.
Now with Instant Action Recruit status you can play alongside veteran
AA gamers and complete training at your convenience. Instant Action is
available on any mission that is not restricted to Special Forces only
players. You will need to complete Basic Combat Training in order to
achieve honor levels higher than Honor 20, plus you'll gain the
benefits of improving your skills as a soldier with each training level
you complete! Your Honor will remain at 20 until you pass BCT, at which
point you will receive all of the additional experience points you have
The new AA Loader checks your version of the game to ensure you are up
to date with the most current release. It also provides easy links to
other community tools and support information. The AA Loader requires
Internet Explorer 6.0 or later be installed on your system.
The flashbang has been tuned a bit to make it more realistic. The
effectiveness has been reduced when used outdoors. Also the blackout
duration has been reduced.
Weapons reload faster then before. Fixing jams and using the supported/unsupported function are also quicker now.
-Every Soldier is a Sensor (ES2)-
Every Soldier, as a part of a small unit, is a potential information
collector and an essential component in achieving situational
awareness. The updated SF Extraction mission includes new ES2 gameplay
designed to embrace this new ES2 philosophy.
-SAI Creation Tool-
The AA Mission Editor now includes tools to help you set up and capture
images for use with the Situational Awareness Indicator (SAI). You can
customize the captured images and import them into your maps to enable
simple SAI functionality. Look in the 'Tools/SAI Map Image Tools' menu
to give it a try.
