America's Army: Special Forces (Overmatch)
Release Notes - Version 188.8.131.52
This patch was created to address a few minor issues prior to the next release
of America’s Army.
We have enabled Global Forceclassing (FC) on honor bearing servers. Individual
FC can still be used but not on honor servers. Using a Global FC on everyone
levels the playing field for all. When using Global FC, honor is accrued at
less than normal rates due to the fact that old maps were created with specific
weapon loadouts in mind. Forceclassed Servers will show up in MBS with an (FC)
preceding their name for easy identification.
Spaces in user account names are no longer permitted. If you have an old
account with a space it has been replaced with an underscore character (_) or
in the case of conflicts a number. You should have received an email to your
address of record indicating the change. All of your other account information
Ban system again supports banning by IP, MAC, or Name/PBGUID (for PB servers
banning by NAME will result in a PBGUID ban instead of a name ban). Ban system
now supports console commands to list ban lists in sets of 20 (or so) to allow
"scrolling" through the list to locate banned players. The Admin Command Post
only supports showing the first 100 ban entries but now has a wider list to show
all the ban details. The Banning system was rewritten and includes the
preliminary ability to download a ban list from a web server on game server
The following INI section can be added to support this:
This will cause the game server to try to retrieve the "BanList.status" file
from the web server using the URL:
www.somedomain.com/AA2831BanList/BanList.status (using the example above)
which will be compared to the local version to see if the ban list file
The BanList.status file contains the following lines:
If the version does not match (regardless as to whether it's newer or older)
the remote BanList.txt file is downloaded from the web server. It is not
recommended to use this for large ban lists. It is anticipated this ban list
management system will be expanded in future versions of America's Army.
Player Admin support has been rewritten to require player administrators to
have passwords. The new AASM provides support for creating the appropriate
format PlayerAdmin entries. For those wishing to manually edit their INI file
the PlayerAdmin setting is now in the format "PlayerAdmin=,
" (e.g. "PlayerAdmin=Bob,mysecretpassword"). Player Admins
wanting to join the server must join the server using either the MBS browser
and right-clicking on the server name (with it selected) and choosing "Join As
Player Admin" or by joining via the console using this format
(e.g. "open 192.168.0.1?PAPassword=mysecretpassword").
You must have logged into your account in order to use this functionality on
any official or authorized server.
