    Can I play this at native resolution on a 20" ACD, using a 12" Powerbook or the PC listed in my sig?

    Thanks

    It should run fine. I seen it work on a PowerBook G4 12" before. I'm running it myself on my 15". Very slow to load though.

    I thought server support for America's Army Mac version had been shutdown? Certainly the windows and linux versions have been updated, but now no longer Mac version updates?

    Surprisingly, I ran it just fine on my 800 MHz G3 iBook. :eek:

    At the moment, yes. But as of February 21 from the below link, Beta testing is open again! Also, this question is relating to the 9550 on my PC handling the native res on the 20" ACD. I'm sorry for any confusion.

    Yep, as Rocky noted, they've created a workaround!

    I think you might something better than the 5200 in the newer maps. A 5200 probably can handle the original maps easily (my GeForce4MX in my iMac G4 was getting 15-25 FPS, for comparison). But the newer maps like the road ambush one, I'd get below 15 FPS. An FX 5200 might pull it off.

    However, I was only playing it at 1024 x 768... I really doubt you'll get any good FPS at native resolution.

    my iBook 700 works decently. Your powerbook should be fine. does anybody know when 2.3 will be released? (i've heard a few weeks ago it was in beta testing) Any other dirt?
