PUBLIC RELEASE #2: NovaWorld Server Authentication Since the current state of NovaWorld is unknown and has been unstable the last few months, I've made an app that will allow you to create a game session for LW, TFD, BHD and C4 even if NovaWorld is currently offline. This app will allow your game to create a "NovaWorld" session even if "novaworld.net" is offline.

To use it, open the app before launching the game. From there, nothing else is needed. Just launch the game and host as normal. The game will still report to the official game lobbies so when / if the lobbies come back online they will show.

This is only necessary if you cannot create a hosting session because NovaWorld is offline. If you get an "Unable to Host a Session" message when hosting. I figured I would release it now because of the current NovaWorld status.

PUBLIC RELEASE: NovaHQ Heartbeat DLL (DF1 – DFBHD Lobby DLLs) THESE ARE THE SAME FILES THAT WERE APPROVED FROM THQ FOR THE GOG RELEASE!

Now that we have our own game lobby (http://nw.novahq.net), we also needed our own lobby reporting tools.

While I’ve been busy porting my host tool (Now supports DF1, DF2 and DFLW (soon TFD and BHD)) over to all DF games, some people might not want to deal with additional tools running or already have their favorite host tool. Because of that, I have created replacement DLL files that will load automatically with your game whenever you are hosting. They will report your game status to the NovaHQ and NovaWorld.cc lobby automatically so anyone can join your game. Additionally, these files can be used to create your own lobby or server status for your own website.

I’ve created DLL files for DF1 – BHD. All you need to do is download the archive, find your game version and replace the files in your game folder. These files will not affect gameplay in any way; they work with all mods and simply report your games online status when you are hosting a “NovaWorld” game session. By default they report your games online status to http://nw.novahq.net and http://novaworld.cc but you can add an additional lobby if you choose. I will be releasing some sample PHP scripts that will show you how to display this information on your own website or even create your own lobby.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO RUN THESE FILES?
Because when / if NovaWorld goes down, servers that are running these DLL files will have a steady lobby to use for players to join through. AND with our alternate Startup.htm files NovaWorld is no longer necessary for players to join games. Yes that means no login or account required. This makes it easy to join games, without having to use pingers or any other software. All the player needs to do is load their game, click play online, and select a server to play in. Just like the good old days.

THESE DLL FILES WILL NOT AFFECT GAME PLAY IN ANY WAY AND WORK WITH ALL MODS. YOUR GAME WILL STILL REPORT TO THE OFFICIAL LOBBY LIKE NORMAL. THESE ALSO WILL NOT AFFECT ANY HOSTING TOOLS YOU CURRENTLY USE.

Information that is reported with these files: Map Name, Current/Max Players, Game Type, Time Remaining, Game Name, Port, Player Name, Team, Weapon, Kills, Deaths etc. Pretty basic stuff. An example of a server running these files can be seen here: http://nw.novahq.net/df2/info/0001500


NovaHQ would also like to thank Thor from NovaWorld.cc for hosting alternate lobbies for all this time, allowing the community to continue playing these great games without NovaWorld.

Delta Force – Now Available DRM free on GOG.com NovaHQ has been working with the team from GOG.com over the last couple weeks to bring Delta Force 1, Delta Force 2, Land Warrior, Task Force Dagger, Black Hawk Down and Delta Force Xtreme to everyone, DRM free. The best part about this: these distributions from GOG.com include many fixes and patches as well as support for the alternate lobby (DF1-BHD).

Unlike the Steam or other versions, when you purchase your game copy from GOG.com your game will work after installing it without having to hunt down alternate patches to play online. You also do not need to register an account on NovaWorld to use the alternate lobby system. These patches were all approved for use by THQ Nordic for the GOG.com distribution.

NovaHQ would like to thank GOG.com for reaching out and working with us over the last couple weeks to provide an “Official” playable version of the game for people to purchase, DRM free.

You can purchase the entire (Except DFX2) Delta Force collection from GOG.com here!

Updates! I've been very busy lately working on a variety of projects for these games. It's all coming along pretty well, I just haven't posted about it much.

NovaHQ now has an alternate lobby for DF1 - DFBHD. I've also created various patches and new Startup.htm files for all five games. Below is a little recap of what is new for 2017.



Delta Force 1:

Alternate Lobby Location(s): http://df1stats.com/lobby.php & http://nw.novahq.net/df

The following patch can be used with or without the Steam version. Simply overwrite all your game files with the one in the archive to play online. We play every Sunday at 1PM CST. Use the DF1STATS.COM lobby for the time being.

Delta Force 2:

Alternate Lobby Location: http://nw.novahq.net/df2

Many fixes for DF2. I’ve compiled a “fixer” that will take care of 99% of the issues with DF2. It also includes a new Startup.htm so you can access the Novahq.net lobby. You can use this with the steam version as long as you don’t “Verify” your game cache after installing.

Make sure to install the EVO Mod to play on DF2 EVO servers.

Server hosts now have an All-In-One hosting tool that combines the features of Auto Messenger, Command & Control Server and DF2 Fixer into one small app. There are so many things in this, it’s hard to list them all. If you’re hosting a DF2 server, you need to check this out. This also reports to the enhanced DF2 NOVAHQ lobby system.

Land Warrior:

Alternate Lobby Location: http://nw.novahq.net/dflw

Below is a “Fixer” archive with a few fixes for DFLW that I’ve created. Includes a new Startup.htm file to access alternate lobbies, VON fix built into the EXE as well as a Borderless Window fix using the application compatibility database. This also gets rid of the pesky “low swap file” message when loading the game. You can use these with the steam version as long as you don’t “Verify” your game cache after installing.

LW Patches: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=69

Task Force Dagger:

Alternate Lobby Location: http://nw.novahq.net/dftfd

Below is a “Fixer” archive with a few fixes for DFTFD that I’ve created. Includes a new Startup.htm file to access alternate lobbies, VON fix built into the EXE as well as a Borderless Window fix using the application compatibility database. This also gets rid of the pesky “low swap file” message when loading the game. You can use these with the steam version as long as you don’t “Verify” your game cache after installing.

TFD Patches: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=110

Black Hawk Down (and Team Sabre):

Alternate Lobby Location: http://nw.novahq.net/dfbhd

Thanks to Baldo_the_don and Silent, I think we have a pretty much complete “BHD HD” patch coming. It works only for single player, but is as close as we can get it to supporting the HD res. I will try and compile everything and release it soon for you single player junkies.

In the works:
I will try and keep everyone updated on the status of more apps. I have so many in the works right now I don’t know how to talk about all of them. I’m currently focusing on keeping a lobby accessible since NovaWorld has been down a lot lately. Coming soon is also an app that will allow you to host a game even if NovaWorld is down. Some games (LW, TFD, BHD, C4 etc) need to be verified before a session can be created. I’ve found a way around this limitation so that games can be created. With these fixes, we will always be able to play, with or without NovaWorld.

Stay tuned!

JOStats with PHP 5.6+ support Since there are a lot of people still wanting to host stats for Joint Operations, I've managed to fix the code base for JOStats so that it works with PHP 5.6+. There were a ton of edits but it's now fully working on PHP 5.6+ so you no longer have to find a host with PHP 5.2 to run stats.

Please make sure you read the Readme-NovaHQ.txt file before you install or upgrade your stats. It has all the information you need to install / upgrade your JOStats. If you need more help, please post in the forums here.

A Message from John Garcia John Garcia, former owner of NovaLogic, posted this message on the Novaworld2.com forums:

Quote:
Hello Everyone,

As many of you have heard by now, NovaLogic has transferred its intellectual property to THQ Nordic.

The core NovaLogicians have put their souls and most of their working lives into our creations over the last 30 years. The work came from our heart and we owe our success to our incredibly loyal community. We thank all of you for being part of our lives.

There were many factors why we were not able to keep on doing what we loved, but we have all seen how in the last 10 years our industry has consolidated into a handful of companies that put slickness and marketing over innovation.

THQ Nordic is an exception. We believe that they are genuine gamers and have the wherewithal to carry the flame for years to come. We will help them do this if they so desire.

How do I end this letter? As a great fan of Stanley Kubrick, I leave you with this song.

Peace and Love,

John
I wonder what "We'll meet again means...."
