i got America's Army installed on my laptop, excitedly hoping to check it out finally. i load it up and i get an error message. apparently directx 8.0 isn't good enough for it, the bastards want me to have 8.1 at the very least. the hell?! 8.1b just came out a week ago. bloody military bastards. now i'll have to wait til i get home and hope to god that my laptop will connect to the net.
