I am trying to play American Army 3, but the punkbuster keeps on kicking me from the server. AA3 is installed on my machine, which I originally did through Steam. All seemed to work fine. I also installed punkbuster and started the game. But then it kicked me off and said I needed to enable multiplayer type browser in order to play the game. The problem is that I already have a multiplayer browser but it still kicks me off the AA3. My firewall also allows it to work. So I am clueless on this issue. At the moment it is not even letting the game start. So I am left with no game and no idea about what is happening to my computer. Any help is great. Bye.
Enable Multiplayer Type Browser to Play the Game
I''ve got a few plans and visions, but my only true design decision is to keep it fun and accessible. There''s no design doc, but there are two lists; one for bugs, and one for features I want to add but think I might forget.
I make sure to play the game a lot, and I''ve built my share of towers, and flooded my share of caves. If something ever doesn''t feel fun, I''ll remove it. I believe that I can combine enough fun, accessibility and building blocks for this game to be a huge melting pot of emergent gameplay.
I strongly believe that all good stories have a conflict, and that all good games tell a good story regardless of if it''s pre-written or emergent. Free building mode is fine and dandy, but for many people it will ultimately become boring once you''ve got it figured out. It''s like playing a first person shooter in god mode, or giving yourself infinite funds in a strategy game.. a lack of challenge kills the fun.
For survival mode, I''d rather make the game too difficult than too easy. That also means I''m going to have to include some way of winning the game (or some other climax) to prevent it becoming too exhausting.
But if it''s no fun, I''ll redesign.
