It's come to our attention that with the new version there may be some confusion when it comes to joining a server. Therefore with the help of our friendly Dev Team (*cough* Tear *cough*
) we have put together this, hopefully useful, set of tips for finding your favorite America’s Army 3
servers.Six Easy Ways to Connect to an America’s Army 3 Server1. Via the In-Game Browser
In the main In Game Menu select “Multiplayer” and then browse for the server you want to join in the list provided.2. Via the In-Game Console
This is a bit more “Old School” but for you fuddie duddies like me who like typing commands you can hit the ~ key to bring up the console and type the following command :
Open xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx where the x’s are the IP address of the server you want to join3. Via the Loader Browser
This function is disabled by default, but you can re enable the Loader Server Browser using the following steps
a. Launch AA3 from Steam
b. Select options from the Menu by clicking the Star at the top left of the loader
c. Tick the box that says “Show Server Browser after selecting Play Now”
Now when you select the Play Now button in the browser you will be taken directly to the Loader Server Browser where you can find your favorite server and log right in.4. Via the Steam Server Browser
You can join an AA3 Server right from the Steam Client simply by right clicking the Steam Tray Icon and selecting Servers. Once you have set the filter for America’s Army 3
you can join a server direct without even having to start the game.5. Steam Friends
In addition to the Steam Server Browser, if you have a buddy that plays America’s Army 3
and you want to join the server they are playing on all you need do is right click their name in your friends list and chose “View Game Info”.
When the window launches simply hit “Join Server” and assuming there is room in the server you will automatically launch in to the game.6. Scoreboard Star Menu
Between rounds you can hit F1 to bring up the Community Scoreboard. From here you can select Servers and find a new server to join.
We hope this little guide proves useful and hopefully will enable you to get in to your favorite servers ASAP.
