America's Army Mac Client Dropped
9:42 AM | Cord Kruse | 17 comments
After working on Mac and Linux clients for America's Army long after official support was discontinued, Ryan Gordon has made the decision to move on to other projects. Time issues and an increasing use of middleware in newer versions of America's Army contributed to the decision, as did financial considerations. Gordon says that while version 2.6 may make its way to gamers eventually, 2.7 will not.
The problem, though, is that I'm a busy, busy guy. There are paying clients that are waiting for me to give them my attention, and my TODO list is continuing to grow. There are clients I work for, too many pro bono ports that I think are important, personal projects and experiments, open source stuff that needs love and care...I really do try to make everyone happy, and spend almost every waking hour in a debugger to do so, but as all the people still emailing me for UTPG updates can tell you, sometimes things just get flat out dropped. There are only so many hours in the day, even when I use each at maximum efficiency.To read the rest of Gordon's comments click on the link below.

Sadly, the ArmyGame project is about to teeter into this category.
2.7 is coming soon, and I'm still fighting with the 2.6 clients. Future versions of the game will be adding more middleware that I can't keep up with and for which no one will be footing the bill...
What you can do: nothing. Please don't email anyone about this, don't offer to send money. It's just how this goes for now. The client may resurface at some point, but don't hold your breath at this time. 2.6 might still make it out the door, 2.7 probably won't.
