America's Army: Special Forces (Overmatch)
Release Notes - Version 2.8.3
Our goal is to tighten up the game, increase performance and reduce the size of
the installers. 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.
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

-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.
