I remember when i first got on this forum i read that you can make the game look like you finish training and go strait to the online games just buy going into the files and change a few nunbers..... i search the forum but couldnt find the nunbers or what ever.... can who ever tell me the number i write down?

Why not play the game properly Tim.

Failing that, I'm sure that if you enter the correct search items into http://www.google.co.nz you should find what you're after.

I find it ironic that this poster uses the copyright symbol ę in his forum name. I always thought he didn't know the meaning of the word but perhaps we've been had.

I got americas army again..

If you've got the game again (presumably you wanted it again) why not play it again instead of appearing to want to cheat?

You have America's army again - Why'd you delete it in the first place? -this is a game made by the American Army, and you want to cheat in it?

Cheating in games is pointless, it defeats the purpose of the game, but to cheat in games like AA - it's just stupid?

Also, when playing in multiplayer, cheating handicaps you - your so used to the cheat that you can't seem to do anything

America's Army is free :)

I haven't played it myself but from what I hear to play multiplayer you first have to complete some tasks, kind of like having to get your drivers licence in Gran Tourismo before you can drive the flash cars.

The problem being that some of the tasks are hard, especially when you're stuck in NZ on dial-up trying to complete this task with a huge ping. It's rather difficult. There is a text file that can be edited to change these things.

To play AA you need to register an online account with the Americas Army server. After that you need to complete basic, weaponry, airborne, sniper (if you qualify as a marksmen in Basic). Each course you finish need to be transmitted back to the master server so keep on hacking the file Tim :P

I don't see the reason to cheat, Tim (ya noob).

You complete Basics and Weaponry (max 10 minutes), which even an 8 y.o. can do, and the rest of the maps are available to you.

Nononono no no no no no nonnonnononononon, you guys got it all wrong, I didnt get americas army because i wanted it again, i always wanted it, back then americas army was gone from my computer when i did a system restor on my computer and that got rid of americas army for me, and when i did get it, i had a user name called yAnKaDoOdLe and under that user name, i finish training, but i cant get the account information to log in my yAnKaDoOdLe because it can only send the password to my timrox_usuk@hotmail.com email, but i can't log in that account because theres something wrong, thats why i have the timmyrox_usuk@hotmail.com account,

so i got a new aa acound and dont want to do the boring training again, i can finish it easaly buy on the first training for marksmen thingy i didnt have enough bullets to shoot 24 target, i counted the targets i missed and the the ones i shoot and they dont even add up to 24 or higher, then i thought i remember someone posted on this forum a few numbers to change so it makes the game look like i finish basic train so i can get on to multi player...... i did some reading and i realise that you only have to finish the first 4 training missions then you can play multiplayer.

can any one hep

I don't cheat, not even in cs, i hate cheaters!!! i never cheated in multi player games before and never will too, hehehehehe i dont think the us army will care if i finish training or not, im only 13 and the game was trying to get people to join the us army but i can even if i wanted to hehehe

Americas army is a free game the us army made to try to get people to join the army, if you live in America you can order the cd for 5 dollars but you don't so you have to download it with your dail up connection like i did, this took me 4 days, you should get it, its highly realistic, you just have to finish the fist five of the boring training missions on single player then you can play online, and it only takes 5 secs to get connected. you need the full version which is 298MB but its worth downloading.
its hard to find a good fast site to dowload from, so heres the link i downloaded it from

http://vanda.mobil.cz/27803f5ecf768d81b26abbbe46ded768/dema/americasarmy/armyops140.exe

Hey Fergie, u the same ferg in JSG forum?

Yes AA is free, courtesy of the American Tax Payers (to the tune of several millions US dollars). It runs on the Unreal engine. There is one NZ server (usually on at night) plus 2 or 3 Aussie servers. You need a grunty PC to play, P3 with GF2 video card at least. I've seen 56K players but they need to play local NZ servers. I regularly play on US servers on my DSL connection.

You can download the 280MB file from the jetstream FTP site to keep your download local. ftp://jetstreamgames.co.nz/pub/americasarmy/ Note tho the latest patch is 1.4 which is still not at the JSG FTP site yet (still waiting for Skavin to load it).

My suggestion is look for a friend with jetstream and ask them to download it for you using the JSG realm login (which is full DSL speed and free). The 280MB shudn't take longer than 20 - 40 mins. Otherwise find an internet cafe to burn it to a CD for you. Download the Armyops130.exe then get the 1.4 patch at www.americasarmy.com


Go to these NZ forums for AA at http://www.gpforums.co.nz/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=7261

Everything you need to know are on the FAQs there.

Hey Tim,

Yeah Noob mean noobie (:P). Well, good to hear you're not cheating. I've lost my account before, I just sign up a new one and bob's ur uncle. Took me 30 minutes to go through Basic, Weapon, Airborne and Sniper (you need to time your breathing to snipe). If you can't get Marksmen then don't bother going for sniper (which is boring anyway, I much prefer rifleman or carring the SAW MG). Sniper usually get TKed by other noobies wanting his weapon, not worth the hassle.

I find it rather surprising that, apart from having a ę symbol in his name, he also has this emoticon: :*)

Now if you search on Google for emoticon rules, you'll discover that this emoticon means the person using/displaying it is drunk.

This makes me come to the conclusion that Tim is permanently drunk. I doubt that a young person such as him would be drinking this much, so I come to the conclusion that his mother drunk a lot of alcohol while he was not yet born.

However, this surprises me, because for someone of Tim's likeness, it does not appear that this happened at all.

Ah...
There's rules to using emoticons???
Never knew that one.... hmm... wonder if there's a terms of use for them as well...
Emoticons can only be used on publicly accessible forums and chatrooms.. And cannot show explicit content... and must be G rated
Really.. It's stupid.. Tim uses it as his signature just as all my posts are followed with CyberChuck.

I still haven't figured out what your post in this thread has to do with solving Tims problem (considering it's already solved)

But there are rulles about what should be said to other people in public. Never say anything to someone on a chat forum that you wouldn't say to there face. its's just good manners , agent, and I think your comment was out of order.

I agree with Crozier

Some things are meant to be left out of public forums (heck - I'm one of 'em). People have a right to know how you feel about them without having the rest of the world read your opinion about them too.

Also, on what basis are you grounding Tims mother been a pregnant drinker? - Just because Tim likes the emoticon doesn't mean anything.

Just because I like the emoticon :D doesn't mean that my mum was smiling all the time while she was pregnant...

Perhaps I really should have made a note in my above post that I was only joking. However, bring out the old flak cannon and fire it away at me.

*agent takes out can of "Agent's Flame-Proofing Aerosol" and sprays it on self*

As a side note, cyberchuck, grow up. You seem to enjoy acting like a wise old man in these forums, whereas in reality you are a real pain-in-the-ass. Did I say I was grounding Tim's mother as a pregnant drinker? No, I noted that it was a possibility due to his use of the drunk emoticon. I doubt that a person such as him would be drunk at all.

So if Tim read my comment and took it personally, I sincerly apologise, it was meant as a joke, and note a personal remark.

I would like to further point out that a hell of a lot of you have previously given Tim flak, and this was just my little bit.

That's what emoticons are fpr - remember that when you're talking face to face you can use body language to show you you're joking. Besides which, it's extremely rude to say such a thing to somebody you hardly know at all!

>As a side note, cyberchuck, grow up. You seem to enjoy acting like a wise old man in these forums

I, for one, think that for a 15 year old cyberchuck is conributing very well to this forum. He is very knowledgable on a wide range of PC subjects. Although he does tend to go off a bit half cocked. That's just youthful exuberance!.

>Did I say I was grounding Tim's mother as a pregnant drinker?

You seemed to indicate that to me.

>I would like to further point out that a hell of a lot of you have previously given Tim flak, and this was just my little bit.

The difference is that you went beyond the realms of commin decency.

>you are a real pain-in-the-ass

Language like that is not acceptable to many of us here.

Tim,

Anyone on Jetstream can use the JetStreamGames.co.nz realm to play high speed DSL games without adding the national traffic to your bill. JSG realm cannot connect to the rest of the world, just NZ.

If you're playing CS on NZ servers, a number of the DSL players would be using the JSG realm login.

Anyway, what you do is (if you have a Jetstream or Jetstart account),

1. Create another Jetstream dial up account but use the following login name - user@jetstreamgames.co.nz (No password required).

2. Then connect to it. Use your in-game browser to connect to the JSG servers by specifying the IP address.

To access the FTP directory

Do the same but launch ur webbrowser and go to the FTP directory I specified. There are quite a number of demos and patches there.

I am on a 128k jetstart account. When I login in using the free JSG realm account I get full 2Mbit speed but I can only connect to the JSG FTP and Games servers.

Agent, you might like to know that Tim has the distinction of being the only person who has ever got banned from this forum and that was for personal abuse of other forum users.

Bruce only allowed him back for a second chance after a long cool-off period and these days he's much better behaved. Unfortunately some of your behaviour is making his previous antics look distinctly grownup.

Thats a pretty sad thing to say Agent. Most the people who come here for help end up helping others. People give unselfeshly of their time and expertise for nothing more than the satisfaction of trying to help others.

There are some extremely kind people here, who will go the extra mile for a complete stranger (as I found a week or so ag0 myself)

And let all those detractors be reminded that it is free! (Well, to the users it is.)

I get quite put out (sensitive blossom I must be) when people are rude but then I do offline too.

Mostly it's great fun and informative and when I help someone I go around feeling good for days!

I think it has something to do with Virtual Space. In a confine area, you have four walls to display, in open air, you have the hills (contoured), trees, wind, snow, rain etc. A lot more entities for the PC to keep track of. Try setting your details to medium and see if that will help.

I wouldn't worry about those who got it all wrong Tim, theres just some downright silly people in the forum and...........

Your description of the mouse problems made sense to me, and hopefully makes sense to someone who knows the answer.

No, i don't think Baldy got a free computer in the end, although there were certainly enough people willing to donate parts to get him a working slug to get him by. If you will do a wee search you will find the thread where Baldy managed to negociate his way out of having his computer reposessed.

Any improvement on one or all of the above will give you better fps for your game and your mouse will react a lot faster. I couldn't believe how well I played once I dropped my voodoo (16MB) card for a GeForce2MX.

Tim, try turning off shadows or set it to low. Also try playing on 16bits color (in control panel, display setting). 32bits will slow your 2MX400. Try setting ur game screen size to 1024x768.

As you lower your settings, you will begin to hit the sweet spot for both inside and outside environment.

If that's not keeping up, and the game was optimised for that card according to the nVidia.com site, then reduce your screen resolution. 800x600 should work much better than 1024x768, and the difference isnt too bad unless you're on a large monitor or are sitting within 15cm of the screen!

Did I say update drivers? I thought I said it was optimised for it, but envertheless, they're at 41.09 and it'a a 16-17 meg download for 2K/XP

> My AA game stop crashing when I updated mine.

Yes, updating to the latest drivers usually does help with things like that, and 16Bit color is good too.. just a few sascrifices like that will make it much more playable. Just think, 2 weeks ago, the max I could squeeze out of my 64MB Onboard was 400x300 and getting about 40fps!

It was pretty pathetic.

I have a GeForce 4 mx 440 and im gonna try it out tonight. Have a look on the nVidia site and it says it was created with using that card in mind so they optimised it for that card (Im sure Ive said this before) so running at 16 bit with no other apps in the background going, and even a resolution of 800x600 should up your fps to around 60ish hopefuly!

Just a little note:
most people refer to "problems with the mouse sensitivity" as "lag".
For example, you would say "the game lags when I am playing in outdoor areas of the maps, but not indoor areas". Lag is caused because your computer cannot keep up with what you are trying to do.

To be technically correct, lag is caused by internet packets not arriving on time. It has nothing to do with the mouse. In most cases your mouse will work as normal. You will shoot at someone but the hits will not register. Then in a flash the target zooms to the other side of the map. That is lag, but some noobies will call it cheating instead.

Tim, for some reason the processor people like to give the maximum rate and not the recommended one. If you run it at maximum it might run out of juice, or overheat. If you run it at recommended it will give you the best results per cycle. Some people do overclock their CPU's and find it is worth while, but the manufacturer has it set at a pretty good speed.

To enter your BIOS, you may need to press one of a few keys.
First try Esc
Then try F1
.............F2
.............F3
etc...........

It could be any of them. If the first one doesn't work, reboot and try again.

It might be called Ram Frequency or something similar. You will see it says 100Mhz somewhere, that can be changed to 133 and there's also another setting too.

Try just going through systematically, starting at the top of the left column (If your BIOS has the same layout as mine, should do....) and working your way down, then go to the top of the right column.

Dont worry, you'll get it easy enough.

LOL no. That is not lag. We call that under-performance, lack of grunt, under-powered, not up to spec etc etc (and those are the nice terms we use).

Lag is known as the plague of online gaming. It is the slowness/latency of your data connection. The higher your ping, the more likely you will 'lag' during online games. If others see you with a 1000+ ping in their game, they call you a 'lagger'. Someone who is lagging will be hard to hit, and will usually cause other players to experience lags as well.

Take for example, if you play Battlefield 1942 on 56K modem. You'll play reasonably alright on 16 players servers. But if you play on a 32 or 64 players server, your game will become laggy, because the data from 32 or 64 players cannot reach your PC in time. So your game begin to stutter (ie lag).

If you play BF1942 offline and it still behaves like a 64player session, then your PC is not up to spec to play the game.

Chilling_Silence
18-12-2002, 03:33 PM
Anything over 250ms and you're considered to suffer from Lag.

I was transferring some files between my two PC's (Before I upgraded the switch from 10MBPS to 100) while playing UnrealTournament, and the lag was around 300ms, I found it unbearable, trying to hit a played who'd left the position over 1/4 second ago, that's a sniper's screen length 3-4x over!

Ah, I remember Lemmings...
But Lemmings cannot help but throw themselves off cliffs, it's a natural instinct. Although you say lag is only applicable in multiplayer games (I'm no blockhead, I know what lag and ping time in multiplayer games are), lag is also a term many people (though obviously not you people) use in singleplayer games, such as "goddam, my computer's lagging so much". It is also used when you are not even playing a game, and can't be bothered saying "my computer's hanging", so they say "my computer's lagging"... both fit equally well.

TK'ing is team-killing ie intentionally or un-intentionally killing your team mates. Some of the lower-IQ gamers think its funny to shoot you for your gun, shoot indiscriminately, or thow a grenade without thinking. The penalty is the game server will ban you from all official AA servers for a period of time.

Tim, with the new patch, don't adjust your chute, let it drift down until you see the circle. If you time it right, you only need to pull forward a wee bit to land in the circle. Remember to flare 2 seconds before landing.

To qualify for sniper school. You need to attend Basic (where they teach you to shoot your M16). I can't recall how many targets you need to hit but if I remember correctly you cannot miss more than 4 targets. If you can achieve that, then the sniper school map becomes available for you. If you really want to go to sniper school, keep going for basic course until you can hit all the targets. In sniper school you can practice as long as you want but when you take the test, you get one shot only. So time your breathing before squeezing the trigger.

There are no Single Player maps except for trainings. There are no Bots in AA.

You can train on Basic, Weaponry, Sniper (if you qualified) and Airborne tower and Airborne plane jump.

AA is meant as a recruitment tool by the US Army. The whole concept is to play as a team, and their maps are designed for that purpose.

You are required to go through the training, then play on some of the internet multi-player laser-tag maps (eg McKenna, Swamp, FLS etc) before you qualify for 'live weapons maps' ie Bridge, Mountain Pass, Weapon Cache etc.

I recommend patience - its not simple, but once you're online (even with your 56K modems) you'll discover its a very exciting game when playing with a Kick-Ass team.

Im not too sure about hosting a server, but you may want to check the AA : Ops forum here (http://www.americasarmy.com/forum/index.php):D

You just need to edit your server information in the ArmyOps folder on your PC, included in your original download. Oh, and sign up for a server registration online. Most of the info is in the pdf manual.

Remember though, that you need a true top-spec'd machine to play on your own server from the same machine while it's open to the public, or use another networked machine.

If any kiwis start getting good, and would like to form a clan, please give me a yell.
