As many of you players are aware, these are some of the most common problems faced when playing version 2.1 of America's Army. Here is a brief explanation of these three problems and how to deal with them. If you have any further questions or news, post it here. General Protection Fault This is the all-too-common crash you get after dying and spectating another player. The problem most likely is due to the new features they have added to the spectator mode, most noticeable is causing the player to become invisible at close range so you can see the action happening in front of him. Please be aware that this crash will happen on any computer, this is NOT a hardware problem, but again, a conflict in the game's programming. To prevent the game from crashing, simply stay in your current view, DO NOT switch players. Authorization Servers As of right now the servers are down while major upgrades are being made. However, this doesn't completely guarantee that there will be no more crashes. When many people are playing at one time the server can go down due to sheer "stress". After the upgrades this should no longer be a frequent problem. The previous crashes were the result of just that, a large increase of users playing online with the introduction of addition Special Forces missions. Losing Account Information Please be aware that there are programs out there that are suppose to allow you to use colored text more easily. In truth, some of these collect your login information and then send it to the programmers. While I doubt this is an explanation for the majority of you who have lost training results, be aware that many people HAVE had their account stolen through the use of these programs. A loss in training and/or no user records can also be attributed to:
- Passing training and then going back to play just for practice or fun. Saving the results will replace any existing records. For example, you hit 36 targets in basic marksmanship. One day you decide to go back and just fool off and only hit 10 targets, if you sign in and submit those results, they replace the previous ones. You are no longer able to play the game as you don't meet the minimum training requirements.
While authorization servers are down you may get a "No User Record" found error. You should be able to access your account after the server goes back up.
The devs have a temperary fix for the auth servers right now. You can play on most servers at the moment with an added bonus, you will have a special icon next to your name along with either 50 or 100 honor. :)
For the GPF error, always stay in first person view when spectating (default: press E) :beer:
