We improved the frame rate a great deal in this release. Some people have reported as much as a 40% increase – although performance varies based upon your specific system setup.-Instant Action-The new Instant Action mode of America’s Army allows you to quickly jump into the AA action without the need to complete training first. Now with Instant Action Recruit status you can play alongside veteran AA gamers and complete training at your convenience. Instant Action is available on any mission that is not restricted to Special Forces only players. You will need to complete Basic Combat Training in order to achieve honor levels higher than Honor 20, plus you’ll gain the benefits of improving your skills as a soldier with each training level you complete! Your Honor will remain at 20 until you pass BCT, at which point you will receive all of the additional experience points you have accrued.-AA Loader-The new AA Loader checks your version of the game to ensure you are up to date with the most current release. It also provides easy links to other community tools and support information. The AA Loader requires Internet Explorer 6.0 or later be installed on your system.-Flashbang-The flashbang has been tuned a bit to make it more realistic. The effectiveness has been reduced when used outdoors. Also the blackout duration has been reduced.-Weapon Reloading-Weapons reload faster then before. Fixing jams and using the supported/unsupported function are also quicker now.-Every Soldier is a Sensor (ES2)-Every Soldier, as a part of a small unit, is a potential information collector and an essential component in achieving situational awareness. The updated SF Extraction mission includes new ES2 gameplay designed to embrace this new ES2 philosophy.-SAI Creation Tool-The AA Mission Editor now includes tools to help you set up and capture images for use with the Situational Awareness Indicator (SAI). You can customize the captured images and import them into your maps to enable simple SAI functionality. Look in the ‘Tools/SAI Map Image Tools’ menu to give it a try.System Requirements (have not changed)=============================================The current Minimum System Requirements for AA:SF (Overmatch) are as follows:* 3-D graphics card with 128 MB memory and support for hardware transformation and lighting* 1.8 GHz processor or equivalent* English version of Windows(r) 2000/XP Operating System with latest updates* 512 MB RAM* 3.5GB of uncompressed hard disk space for game files* 4X DVD-ROM (not required for downloaded installations)* Windows 2000/XP compatible system* DirectX(r)9.0* 100% Compatible DirectX 9.0 soundcard* 56kbps Modem or other network connection* *Nvidia® nForce™ or other motherboard/soundcards containing Dolby Digital® Content Encoderrequired for Dolby Digital® audio.The current Recommended System Requirements for AA:SF (Overmatch) are as follows:* 3-D graphics card with 256 MB memory and support for hardware transformation and lighting* 3.0 GHz processor or equivalent* English version of Windows(r) 2000/XP Operating System with all updates* 1 GB RAM* 3.5GB of uncompressed hard disk space for game files* 4X DVD-ROM (not required for downloaded installation)* Windows 2000/XP compatible system* 100% Compatible DirectX 9.0 soundcard* Broadband Network Connection* *Nvidia® nForce™ or other motherboard/soundcards containing Dolby Digital® Content Encoderrequired for Dolby Digital® audio.Technical Notes=============================================Important Note for Server Hosts/AdminsThe cooperative missions will take significantly more CPU resources to run during normal gameplay dueto the additional AI processing load (shared between the server & client).
