No, go into your America's Army Folder. There should be a folder called system, in that folde you'll find a file called runserver.bat. Use that to start your game.
Thats it? Run a .bat file? What about changing maps and stuff? I'm goning to try it out and see how it works.......
OK I have 4 computers on my LAN. I ran the .bat file from the system folder on an XP Pro computer and the DOS screen comes up, lists a bunch of stuff then goes away. Task manager then doesn't show it running.... ??????
ALso how would I FIND a LAN game anyway????????
I'd like to get this going for an upcoming LAN party...
Someone MUST konw how a guy can setup a LAN server!?!? Or at least point me to a web page that explains it!?:deal:

Does server.exe install with the current install? The best way I have found to get your LAN server up and running is as follows:
1) Go to the folder where you have Army Ops installed. Open the folder called "System". You are looking for a file called "Armyops.ini" Open this in Notepad. Find the following lines:
Change this statement to =false
2) Open a command prompt. I am assuming you know how to use this. Change to the "System" directory under army ops and type "Server.exe LAN mapname.aao" (with out the ""s) This will start the game.
You can now go into Army Ops and any local games will be listed in the LAN games box.
There are still problems with changing maps in game, the best way I have found to do it, since you will be playing with friends is, once you are tired of a map, simply kill the server and start a new one. You can do this or connect to the server as admin and do 'switch mapname' from the prompt. Only do this if you know how
If you need any more clarification, feel free to ask me. I've ran several LAN games, as well as Internet servers and should be able to help you
Thanks for the info but look at what I found!
I tried it last night on my LAN and it worked great! I didn't try the map rotaion but sounds like all is well!
I'm not sure what the enable cheats does...
