Americas Army 2.5 Deploy, OUT NOW

Americas Army 2.5 Assist is out now on Mac OSX.
Now a Universal Binary so works with Intel macs, Lion and Mountain Lion. Jun 2013.

It's a completely free and highly realistic FPS shooter game and installation is as easy as just a few clicks of the mouse with this Deploy Client.

Visit http://aa25.org for more Info

2.5 Assist is a Installation Utility for America’s Army, It is deigned to make the process of Installing and getting up and running with AA as easy as possible.
If you are new to the game this little Application will fully automate the download and installation of the game from it’s own repository server and handle all the needed updates and checks. It will then guide you through the process of creating an account and then load your account details automatically when you first play.
Getting up and running with this free game is now as easy as a few clicks of the mouse.

If you already have America’s Army 2.5 this Application will make a copy of your existing installation and put it into a completely separate folder so it does not alter your existing installation and then bring everything up-to date. Once you are happy you may delete your old installation of AA if you wish

No, it says it is designed for PowerPC Macs, and "will not perform at its best on Intel Macs."

Same thing with something as hungry as America's Army.

It will work on Intel but you only get around 10-20 FPS I think, Its a shame really, I wish we could get the devs to re-compile in Universal.

If you have an intel it is not worth getting Americas Army 2.5...It is pretty much unplayable.

Yes it has been around for a while, I made Deploy to make it easier for people to get into the game because the game is a few years old there are a lot of updates you would have to install but Deploy takes care of all that for you.
I have never tried it on an Intel mac but i do know people who play the game on an Intel.

They've actually ceased development for Mac awhile ago.

Remember, Intel Macs can run windows...

I think Brad Oliver was doing the development, but I could be wrong. He used to work for Aspyr but now works at Apple

I'm surprised they released an updated Mac client.

Good to know my Quad still has some value, then...

Couple of PPC "only" values:
- Route 66
- Nascar 2003
- AA
- Virtual PC

Major re-design of the user interface, Looks more like its part of the game.
Ability to join passworded servers.

Why, Because the US Army don't care about Mac Gamers, I do and I just happen to live in the UK



Good news for people who are having trouble downloading or have slow internet connections..
You can now order the 2.5 Deploy CD-ROM, It Includes an installer that installs 2.5 Deploy and the Americas Army 2.5 System files so you don't have to download anything.
The software is totally free but you must pay for postage and packaging.

For more info or to order see http://25deploy.co.uk

Version 1.53 now released.

Changes,

-Deploy now gives you the option of installing the mAAp pack, This is a collection of new missions created by the 2.5 community. Deploy automatically loads these maps in when you join a server running a maap mission and then unloads them after.
-Added support for 5.1 Surround sound (Linux).
-Fix bug where deploy crashes on minimizeing AA in Windows XP.
-Minor changes to layout of Buddies screen.
-Removed those annoying tool tips, See the readme instead.
-Various Bug Fixes.

Open Deploy and accept the automatic update.

ENJOY!


RE: yes there are cheats available, they are listed in the user manual but no-one every runs servers with cheats allowed.

Version 1.6 Released..

Change Log 1.6

Assist server manager added...
Unique Features,
-For the first time ever, You can run a server on a mac and have it show up in the server list!
-mAAp fully integrated, mAAp pack maps on Assist server manger run in authorised mode with full authorizion and honor correctly displayed. You can change mAAp maps without the server disappearing from the server list and also the server can be hot swapped between Normal, Border/Dusk and mAAp pack modes without needing separate server installation for each. Server can be switched between modes using the in-game F12 menu.
-Server is constantly monitored so if it crashes or freezes it is automatically terminated and restarted.
-Options for HackHunter, PB banlist and Weapon forcing all built in.
-Display of players currently in the server with ability to pull stats and Background check ETC.
-Checks ports are open before stating to avoid any problems.
-Supports MultiHomeing so server only binds one network interface.



Added Ability to change where deploy stores its files and the AA installation by creating a folder next to the AA-25Assist executable simply called '25deploy'...

For example if you want to put deploy on the D: drive (windows) in a folder called AA, You would move AA-25Assist.exe to D:\AA\ and then create the folder D:\AA\25deploy\

If you already have Assist set-up before doing this you will then need to move all the files over from the old deploy folder to the new one!
The Old Assist folder can be found here...
MAC OSX /Users/-USERNAME-/Library/Application Support/25Deploy/
LINUX /home/-USERNAME-/.25Deploy/ (Hidden Folder)
WINDOWS c:\Documents and settings\-USERNAME-\Application Data\25Deploy\
VISTA C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\25deploy\

Enjoy!
