COUNTDOWN TO 30 Apr 2013 02:00:00 -0500

100% Non-Commercial Indie Game.

Since the death of Major Mylar, the Tan army has lost every battle. Even with the help of the Blue and Grey armies, it seems that the Green are destined to win and the war finally appears to be coming to an end after so many years.
Unbeknownst to the Green however, The Insane Grey Doctor who was recently declared MIA, is still alive and has been furthering his research that he started back in the tropical zone of the plastic
world, going beyond zombies and instead has found a new interest in the insects of the real world. Spawning creature after creature of the vilest order, The Grey Doctor's power only grows with each passing moment.
Seeking to capture and destroy the plastic world, The Doctor finally emerges back in the real world, with his new found army ready and at his command he launches an assault on all of the nations.

But unknown to anyone, even Plastro himself, the Grey Doctor has also recovered Major Mylar’s remains and with them, has created a weapon so powerful, it threatens the balance of both the real and the plastic worlds...

After 2 years, Beta 1.2 is finally released! Because Unreal Engine 4 is now free (and the anti-mod support barrier is removed), this will be the last release using UDK as we are currently migrating to Unreal Engine 4. UE4 provided much better opportunities that are otherwise impossible or very hard to achieve in UDK (unless I buy the UE3 license and get the full source code).

Known Bugs/Issues/Fixes

New Update Improvements.

  • IK Bones were partially fixed (including the dual-wield issue
  • Sprinting stamina has been doubled.
  • The vehicle physics are no longer wacky.
  • Most NPCs now respond better to Line-of-Sight and Hearing threshold (can see and hear targets more effectively) also seemed to fix or crippled the lagging issue from the sight counter timer.
  • The simple command system is fully functional – By default, press C to order your allies to follow, C again to order them to stop. (NOTE – only some allied soldiers will follow you)
  • Added an additional command to order them to move to location (press V).
  • The grenade now only detonates when it touches a target or
  • Save system features for Mission 05 has been improved.
  • Resolved saving glitches in skirmish mission "Plastic Dinner Special".
  • Dual wielding system now requires the player to pickup another weapon of the same type to dual-wield it.

Army Men Specific – Bugs/Issues still remaining.

  • We are still struggling with fixing the IK Bone solvers (although we somehow fixed the glitched issue with dual wielding).
  • Some NPCs (e.g. Zombies) may still have their target stuck at enemies far away from them, thus not responding to sight and hearing targets (actually have to shoot them for them to attack ya)
  • Some missions may lag at the beginning due to loading the AI and scripted events.
  • Some NPCs would turn to 'Idle' state after performing a melee or special attack (e.g. Berserker).
  • The grenade may sometimes get stuck and will not detonate.
  • Save system is sometimes flawed.
  • Sometimes dead NPC physics may become wacky (due to collision of certain static meshes).
  • Pressing Middle Mouse on a dual-wieldable weapon or switching a new weapon after dual-wielding your previous weapon may sometimes prevent the player from throwing grenades. To resolve, return to that dual-wielded weapon and disable dual-wielding (by default, 'Middle Mouse').
  • There is a glitch with FP Arms appear after the player dies. This usually happens when you enter first person mode on any vehicles that allow the player to be visible (e.g. Mounted HMG emplacements).

UDK Specific – Bugs/Issues we CAN NOT fix on our own (Epic Games will have to do that instead).

  • Sometimes, the terrain collision for some reason started becoming rather bizarre after changing resolution or “Alt-Tabing” out of the game for whatever reason.
  • The game may sometimes freeze and crash during gameplay.
  • The game would sometimes crash when selecting a mission (Campaign or Skirmish) or exiting the game.
  • Some of the AI objectives may not become invincible when scripted to do so, since the game was cooked and packaged (e.g. Flak Gun in Mission 05: Demolitian)

If you find any additional bugs and/or other issues, post them in the forums via the Bugs and Support section.

If anyone could also provide additional download links to the updated game, we would really appreciate it.

We haven't worked on multiplayer yet, at least not for the UDK Beta.

The multplayer will arrive in the final version of the game or at least the first UE4 Beta release. The UDK Beta is strictly singleplayer.

Check again.

The exe is packaged in a rar file to reduce space, so you might need WinRAR or 7Zip to open the file.

Also as for the game running at 5 FPS, are you using experimental settings by any chance? if so, you may have to disable them or at least the DX11 version or look into the specs at the download section of the website.

I have to admit, I'm perfectly willing to throw on the nostalgia filter full-bore, but I do have a question. Will there be a story fitting of such a return for the Army Men?

Yes, thats partially the reason the team is starting from scratch. We've overhauled the story plot and plan to overhaul most of the game. Some of the characters (like Niles) will still remain, and the similar concept we had before from the old stroy will return, but there will also be MUCH more to the game than tbe Beta had, including a new interactive and 'open-world' style main menu system and character customization feature.

Just wanted to express my heart felt thanks for doing something Army Men related and sticking too it.

Far too many people let their mods die and it's sad to see such a great concept go to waste in general, what with 3DO being out of business in all. It really brings back the childhood nostalgia! :)

THIS IS AWESOME DUDE I WISH I COULD HELP. i recomend you to solve the AI and the colors are too bloomy, but damn this is some really good work. i guess youre not working alone .

if you can do the momevent a little smoother that would be good too, will kinda look like the army men 2 and 1 anim.

This is probably the most effort driven indie game I have ever seen and played. Yes, this game has a bug here and there but that can surely be fixed. The fact that this game haas been a success is mainly through himself and the commuity. The game play of this game is great and in my opinion I would like the music to be a little softer but thats what I think. People can say that this is a bad game but as long as this is effort driven I will always vote game of the year and game of everything. I love…
