Hi, which expansion should I be using as far as multiplayer goes?. It seems that the custom maps are geared more toward aa & sh but not breakthrough.

BT can play a map that is made for AA. A map is only made for SH if the map maker used textures found only in SH and did not include those textures/shaders in the custom map. You can still play on it(meaning the map will run), but the client will see a gray/white grid where the texture should be. However, there are very few BT servers left (sadly). Allied Assault is still very strong with Spearhead following.

I think people prefer AA because it doesn't have smoke grenades and leaning. ;) It makes me upset to see servers running all these crappy mods. The mods are completely unrealistic, vanilla/stock is much better!.

Well most people play AA because it is the core game. Speahead and Breakthrough are just expansions ... in most cases expansions are played less on any game. The beauty of Allied Assault is it's modibility though. People can play whatever they want and this way it never gets old. You may not like something, but others do. No one is right or wrong as long as we all have fun with it.

I use Spearhead, unless I go on a custom map server, then i have to use Breakthrough, because for some reason mac's can only load loading bars. I don't play AA because my clan's server is SP but also i like to bash every now and then. I think it's just preference.
