Known Bugs/Issues

Army Men Specific - Bugs/Issues we CAN eventually fix.

  • We are still struggling with fixing the IK Bone solvers (most likely a UDK-based bug).
  • The vehicle physics tend to get wacky (probably because UnrealPhysics are On)
  • After switching from dual-wielding, the left hand would not return in place as it should.
  • Some missions would 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).
  • Some of the static mesh objects in certain missions are missing collision (e.g. Pipe Dreams)
  • Save systems are sometimes flawed.

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

  • The terrain collision for some reason started becoming rather bizzare after packaging the game.
  • The AI would sometimes become semi-function after packaging the game.
  • The game would sometimes crash when selecting a mission (Campaign or Skirmish) or exiting the game.
  • Some of the AI objectives would 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.

Yep, and Mega downloads games first to the default C drive and i cant change, but i only have 1gb left on the C drive and the download is 2.5 gb.... while i have more than 200g left on the D drive.

Can you upload the file on ModDB?

That is what I have been trying to do, however it did not seem to work the last time. Complained about the file being too large (not sure if it accepts 2.35GB)

Oh from the looks of it i dont think it does, i guess since you already set the setup up you cant split into two parts? Either way even if it was working just fine i think it is much easier for people to just download off ModDB, even if in two separate parts.

Perhaps either Gamefront or 4shared also accept more than 2.5g?

I will try those two instead. But how exactly do I split the game into two parts?

Well truth be told i have no idea, i guess one part is the main one and the other is considered as a "patch", that you install after the first one, for example like the Forgotten Hope 2 latest version, both of them are 1.5gb and uploaded in here, one is "1of2" and the other "2of2", if you know what i mean.

To be very honest with you guys, I am rather new to MeGa when it comes to executable files.I figured it would work similar to its predecessor, Megaupload, however I seemed to have thought wrong...

God I hate unexpected fiascos...

I reached the mission where you're supposed to reach the capital and at the beginning the jeep and tank in front of you turn tan or white before trying to kill you and on occasion the jeep will turn green but you can't drive it because there is a NPC inside it.

Also the cinematics and cutscenes could use some work.

I really kind of lost you a bit, on the "jeep turning green but cant drive" part...

Could you try to explain in more detail of the issue and perhaps a video via the Bugs & Support section of the forums? You may have to register an account before posting.

On a side note, at least I now know some users have actually managed to completely download beta version 1.0 (Updates will of course arrive in the near future).

Actually, we postponed the release due to issues with the file packaging (game crashes spontaneously). we just re-uploaded the game today and preparing a new article as well as updating the website.
