I enjoyed playing Americas Army in 2005 on a P4 machine running at 2.7gh. It wouldn't run Homeworld 2 at all. My trusty little laptop runs Homeworld 2 OK even with it's 1.1gh ULV processor and intel 855GP graphics chip.

I believe if I were to run the same version I was playing in 2005 on this rig it would run scooby dooby doo.

I reckon there are other humans out there who don't want to replace their hardware just yet.

I'm hoping you have or know a site that hosts an older version. ?

And even if I installed that older version and it ran great offline would there be official/unofficial servers for play?

Sorry if these questions are answered everywhere, I did squiz around google and contacted another forums admin (who told me to go here) before this post.

Any response will be appreciated

there are still people playing 2.5, i know i just wanted to check it out, guess there are people with even sh*tier computers than mine, and there are still, id say 150-200 some-odd people playing 2.6 so yeah 2.5 or 2.6 are good versions to fall back on, i dont know about any other versions. u can try an old version like 2.0 or something like that, people r prolly still playing there for the shotguns that the devs got rid of... lol my friend sent me a script that u edit in the sf weapon mod file in ur systems folder that when u go on to an sf server it gives u either the shotgun or the OpFor sf, u choose. i never got it to work but my friend did. lol so yeah...

I'm curious, what are your system specs? My computer is nearing six years in age and can still run the latest version.

Granted the CPU was upgraded to 1.2 ghz, but still...

You are running 2.7 on a 1.2GHz processor?! That's outrageous! It must be soooooooooooo sluggish!

2.5 is the best version to fall back on - iMac/Linux players are stuck with that version for now.
