    Thanks for the heads up. Just curious, not intended as a hostile question, but is the game still subsidized by the US Army or is it independent?

    To answer the question, AA has dropped support for OS X a long time ago. 2.5 was the last version for OS X. They are onto 3+.

    Thanks Quag! I wonder how it compares to battlefield 4? Not playing either. :)

    This is not a spam.

    Leopard and Tiger is supported. Yes it was dropped but Eliz the main coder and developer has brought it back. Now it supports even 10.5.8 version of the MAC's. If you don't believe it just download the game.

    No it is not utilized by the army. A small group of people who is not related to the army has brought the game up, old devs retired or moved on to other version of the game and they also dropped support and authorisation of honor etc.

    But everything is running again as it was, new updates coming and the game is improving by every year.

    This is not a spam, I will answer your questions, just feel free to ask and don't hesitate.

    Problem is there are not many people running Leopard anymore. AA was only coded for PPC Macs and the number of them are decreasing and are not supported by Apple anymore.

    I understand, more and more people buy new Mac's and upgrades. Better Mac runs better games but AA has always been online and up to date so feel free to join if you missed AA.

    You posted almost the exact same thing on IGN, and replied to your own thread twice. You might not be a bot (fooled me), but IMO that's spam.

    I'm not sure if you understand. Intel macs can't run PPC code. Apple dropped Rosetta (the emulation engine to run old apps) a long time ago. Almost nobody here can run the game in OS X.

    I did post on IGN, actually I did advertisements, no need to hate. We just advertise the game, to remind people that AA is not dead and still active for those who played AA before or who would like to try it out as we are close on updating the AA greatly.

    I want to play AA again, I used to play it all the time. But how can I run it on my INTEL mac?

    Is this still PPC only?

    As I got an answer from the main dev, yes it should be possible for intel macs. Just try it out it wont harm your mac in any case.

    So you're admitting it is spam. But regardless...

    So you're saying there will be a new AA that actually supports a modern OS X? Some people would probably like that.

    And no, modern Macs use Intel chips and cannot run PPC code natively. You have to understand that it's not that simple. Unless you port AA to an intel version of OS X, it is more or less dead on this platform.

    Spam is a tricky thing in this forum. Usually if you create an account and your first post is an advertisement it is frowned upon, and may be removed. But if you return and talk about it, that seems better. ;) I myself a regular, have started a new thread for the purpose of saying, "hey, check out this new game" which is ok, but I am not officially associated with said game which may have a bearing. Anyway, it ends up being the discretion of the mods.

    America's Army 2.5 was originally ported to PPC but now works on Intel Macs flawlessly. We have many players, including a dev (who gets better FPS on it than his Windows machine) that play on Intel Macs. The game is now under independent control from a group of devs that are from many countries. There is no official involvement or approval, it's just a project taken on by fans to keep the game alive with updates and cool features. To some, it may not compare to ARMA or BF4 but it's nostalgia and a lot of people say there is no game better or more realistic than AA2. You be the judge :) It's not a large download, much smaller than modern games.

    There is an admin who plays on Mavericks, so the answer is yes.

    Maybe. They could be running the Windows version with Wine unless you are certain that is not the case. That isn't necessarily bad, depending on how well it works with Wine if this is the case.
