So you want to play Army Ants?

Because it was a student project, we weren’t too concerned with making it widely accessible. Thus, the requirements are rather steep.

You will need Vista as it was written in DirectX 10.
You will need a fairly fast computer.
We highly recommend you play with Xbox 360 controllers, 1 per person.
You can also play with a general gamepad controller although this has not been thoroughly tested, and as a last resort the game will work with a keyboard.

Army ants was developed on a:

  • Intel Core 2 Quad 2.67GHZ
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 2x Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT in SLI
  • AGEIA PhysX card
We also tested it on a:
  • Intel Core 2 2.67GHZ
  • 4 GB RAM
  • Nvidia Geforce 8800 Ultra

The game takes up 80mb and you will need to either have the latest Nvidia drivers with PhysX support, or the PhysX runtime. You can download the Nvidia drivers. If you do not have an Nvidia card or do not wish to update your drivers, download the PhysX runtime.
