All Aspect Warfare chronicles the adventures, mishaps and all around tomfoolery of an “elite” team of combat marines who crash landed on the enemy planet they were sent to completely destroy. Stranded and left for dead on a planet with a deployed thermo-nuclear weapon ticking somewhere, their only chance of escape lies deep within hostile territory. With no way of locating the weapon, their's is a race against time to get off the planet before detonation.
Set on a remote four hundred square mile stretch of a near desolate planet, the game features fast and furious action in first or third person perspective, vehicular and aerial combat with a vast array of player controlled air, ground and naval assets. With six playable classes, over twenty first person weapons of mass destruction, thirty player controlled units and breathtaking vistas, this open world game is best in class.
Instant action missions for quick engagements, an involving multi-branching campaign storyline that never plays the same way twice and various multiplayer modes, the game offers something for every action gamer. Whether you are a first or third person gamer or a flight combat jock, the game has something for you to excel at and enjoy with your friends.
========================= ALL ASPECT WARFARE CHANGELOG ========================
GEN = General engine
MP = Multiplayer specific
WL = Wish list
==[TRACKING - ISSUES]==========================================================
- Scene sometimes not fully loaded when Co-Op server recycles
- Dying in CO-OP sometimes does not respawn all clients
- The mission timer sometimes does not appear in the HUD on remote console servers
- NPC marine bots on remote console servers sometimes created in the air.
- Slight delay in removal of exploding rocket and missiles on remote console servers
- Player stats accumulated on joining stats server. Regardless of your pre-existing stats, those values should not carry over across sessions as they were designed to be one-way. e.g. if you had 1000XP, entered a server, gained 100XP, it should remain at 100XP while in the game session, not 1100XP. No decision has been made yet as to whether or not to change this behavior.
- XBox360 game pad will sometimes continue to vibrate after player killed.
[1.00.37] | 10-14-09]
*** PUBLIC RELEASE BUILD ***
- Dedicated console server files are now available and can be downloaded from the shortcut provided. Do NOT install these files into the game folder!! Extract to its own folder and read the PDF file for setup instructions.

[1.00.36] | 09-27-09]
- [GEN] FIXED: Truncated rank names in fp HUD to fix overflow into combat kills
- [GEN] FIXED: weapon view remained locked when running from prone pose.
- [GEN] FIXED: comm log wasn't being restored when restoring a saved game.
[1.00.35] | 09-14-09]
*** PUBLIC RELEASE BUILD ***
WARNING: Previous saved games are incompatible with this version.
- [GEN] The detonation trigger of the prox grenade and APM mine has been reduced from 30 to 5 secs.
- [GEN] Revised the throw and roll distance of grenades. Previously each second tick was a 20m range throw. This has been reduced to 10m.
- [GEN] The grenades and mines in a loadout profile are now shown in the Story Mode profile selection as well as at the supply station selection screen.
- [GEN] FIXED: NPC's now properly recover from being in invalid nav mesh positions.
- [GEN] FIXED: Added padding around buildings to navmesh to prevents NPC's from getting stuck in some corners.
- [GEN] FIXED: Random crash sometimes when loading a saved game.
- [MP] The CO-OP scenario now has a five min start delay. After this delay, the scenario will start and no additional clients are allowed to join until the scenario ends or all clients are dead.
[1.00.34] | 09-13-09]
- [MP] FIXED: APM and prox grenades would explode instantly when dropped
- [MP] FIXED: on remote clients missile sounds weren't played
- [MP] FIXED: on remote servers PSJ and PCU would remain active even after Energy Cells were depleted
- [MP] FIXED: on remote servers PSU wasn't working properly in some cases
- [MP] FIXED: Joining co-op server from GameLobby started clients at the wrong base
- [MP] FIXED: NPC persons on remote servers sometimes didn't play death animation; making it look like weapon fire had no effect on them.
[1.00.33] | 09-11-09]
- [MP] Minor revision to network protocols
[1.00.32] | 09-10-09]
- [GEN] Revised character armor protection values. Remember ALL items have weight. So the heavier the items you are carrying, the slower your movement and the quicker your Fatigue Factor increases. So having a jetpack, heavy armor, machine gun, ammo, grenades etc definitely has an effect.
BEFORE: Kevlar (100), Light (200), Medium (300), Heavy (400)
AFTER: Kevlar (250), Light (350), Medium (500), Heavy (600)
[1.00.31 | 09-09-09]
- [GEN] Rockets used by launchers (LR12, HORNET, KLMP) are no longer supersonic (in excess of 343 m/s) when in flight. This gives players the chance to get out of the way if one is fired from a distance. However, due to the reduced speed, they are now less effective against fast moving targets such as fighters and some gunships.
NOTE: The minimum engagement range for NPC persons is 500m. So even though rocket launchers have a longer range, an NPC carrying one will not fire unless he is within 500m from the target. From that range, you have five seconds to get out of the way of an incoming LR12 rocket flying at 100 m/s.
- [GEN] Reduced the effects of grenade and mines splash damage.
- [GEN] All character classes now have a D.I.E unit by default. Also added the jetpack to some Elite Force Marine (Lucas) profiles.

[1.00.27 | 08-18-09]
- [GEN] FIXED: NPC marines would rapidly move their weapon up and down when player was too close.
[1.00.26 | 08-12-09]

- [GEN] Increased delay between R.A.N.D.O.M explosion transition & scenario end by 20 secs
- [GEN] FIXED: units being started in the air could sometimes be repositioned too close to the ground.
- [GEN] FIXED: issue with character model shadows on water
[1.00.25 | 08-10-09]

- [WL] Mouse wheel now scrolls game docs viewer
- [WL] Added ALT+Q to invoke the game commands only
- [WL] Added a new TRS/EAD filter which shows only SAM, SAL and LPAD units, making it easier to locate and engage them.
- [GEN] Added hint text above first person inventory icon;, like is done with grenades
- [GEN] Added splash damage to first person rockets to compensate for the collision detect occuring in the same frame and not doing the target much damage due to how fast the rockets now travel. Now firing an LR12 (650 damage factor) at something like an LADMK1 (200 armor) gun turret will totally destroy it.
- [GEN] Can now turn XBox360 controller vibration ON or OFF in game options. This way, if it gets stuck, you don't have to quit the game. Just go to options and toggle it. That should reset it.
- [MP] Added ability to disable Enemy Air Defense assets on the server using "enable_ead=0" parameter or the in-game server host screen. This prevents SAMs from launching missiles, SALs from firing and launch pads from launching intercept fighters. This is useful in cases where players just want to dogfight against each other without being engaged when they stray into hostile airspace since EAD units are very deadly.
- [MP] FIXED: PCU, PSJ and PSU inventory usage was not being replicated correctly to remote servers. e.g. even if you used the PCU, you were still visible to clients. lol!

- Released new demo update. This is the last one.
- [WL] Changed TAB key (MP Game Score interface) behavior. Mouse button is no longer used to close it. Instead, tapping TAB will open it for a few seconds or if kept pressed it will stay open until the key is released.
- [MP] Person target designators in MP are now only color coded by team. This means that they will no longer turn Grey when the person is injured.
- [GEN] FIXED: some HUD elements were drawn on top of screen interfaces.
- [MP] FIXED: craft movement keys (WSADFZ) were still enabled when MP chat was active.
- [MP] FIXED: when hosting a game sometimes the scenario name wouldn't be properly broadcasted. Also the number of players wouldn't display correctly in the server browser.

- [GEN] Revised 3D sound ranges
- [GEN] Enabled object Visual Target Tracking (VTT) boxes. Was previously enabled only with cheats enabled due to the amount of clutter introduced in the HUD when enabled.

We may make this a toggle, though if you toggle Single Target Tracking (STT) mode (\ key) all VTT are removed and only the current target designator box appears.
