Advertising?

Hey,

I suppose it wouldn't take much to say double the playerbase on AA Assist. Should we consider doing some advertising? Like Facebook ad for 20 bucks, that would do it I think..

Well, seeing as what we're doing here is redistributing a game made by the US Army with no official go ahead (this is against the EULA), it's a delicate matter.

Attempts have been made in the passed, where people have posted here and there that "Hey check this out, even works on Linux" and stuff like that. We've not done paid adds as far as I'm aware, we've never had the funds for it even if we wanted to.

hardly they dont give a rats ass teddy.
Words are great possed but the tune is crap. A condeming fear strikes down
Things they cannot understand. An excuse to cover up weaknesses that lie within Lies
Laying your guilt and pain. On people that had no part in the molding of a life
That creates its destruction. Lies. Right before your very eyes
A reflection of the mistakes. To the end you will deny. Your part in the demise of a life
Lack of comprehension. Thriving on your cliche. Compelled by self-resentment
Reaching into the minds of those that created. The depression in which they
In which they drowned their flesh and blood. Lies. So easy to blame the
Everlasting fear on a pathetic attempt. To justify the ending of life. Lies
Right before your very eyes. A reflection of the mistakes. To the end you will deny
Your part in the demise of a life
Lack of comprehension. Thriving on your cliche. Compelled by self-resentment

This could be something that could change in the near future. There are changes being proposed to the dmca laws that would allow communities like ours to pick up an abandoned game and support it our selves without fear of the original owner and copyright holder having to take action to protect its property.

Copyright is really the main thing here. However there are means around it.

For instance posting on social media (posting on our facebook page, twitter google + ect), community gaming forums with links back to here and message boards (i.e reddit: /r/aao25) l will help get traffic through as well as improving our standings with search engines.

Another alternate is finding download sites, FPS toplists ect. (via google search) that host the old AAO files or content related to America's army 2. Send them an email or message informing them official support for America's Army 2 has been dropped however, a community developed deploy program called AAO25 is now used to allow users install, update and play the game as well as a server browser and the ability to track in game stats including map stats, playtime and fragrates.

Let them know the standalone windows installer is approx 5-6mb allowing them to save significant space and bandwidth by hosting our installer and most of them should be happy to scratch our back.
