Hi

I'd like to play aa on my ubuntu 8.10. I have downloaded a linux version 2.8.4 but I don't know how to install it. I have unpacked the downloaded tar.gz but in the installation folder I can see only other folders and not Make file.

What is wrong ?

Hi .Puntovale.,
I don't know what you downloaded but there is no Linux client for America's Army version 2.8.4. Is it possible you downloaded the Linux server instead?

The latest client available for Linux is version 2.5. The easiest way to install America's Army version 2.5 on Linux is to use 25assist. I have instructions for installing here: http://forum.americasarmy.com/...=288673

You need to play on a real windows installation.
WINE/Crossover etc dont work with AAO. Plus those windows-like environments will never work with PunkBuster, which is a requirement to play on cheat-free servers.

What a pity they dropped Linux support Sad AA 2.5 used to be among the great Linux-available games...

You are right. I think that I have downloaded wrong version. I'm surprise to know that the last linux version is 2.5. Are there available servers on this version ?

Yes there are plenty of servers, and from what I've seen there are about a few hundred players playing at the same time each day at the highpoint, around 20 at the lowest. I've never seen a moment where are 0 players however Smile

Not a few hundred, maybe 40 at the same time max.

no peak population is around 250, which from what I've seen occurs around 2PM EST everyday.
