(90 MB) A very close to fully unlocked MED Map Editor for Joint Ops - this is the most substantial map editing tool available to date for Joint Ops. This Map editor is a BHD map editor which has been tweaked to allow use of 3DI wireframe mode, as well as full use of terrains (colormaps and heightmaps) as well as tiling. Additionally we added a new checkbox for the AAS gametype and the ability to modify distances for LFP spawns. Have fun and Get mapping.. NOTE: Extract zip file to a temporary directory - then read README before proceeding.
If you are having problems with the replacement "Update.exe" file not running or running in a infinite loop, NovaLogic recomments downloading the full digital version of the game and running a repair installation. This will work even if you have a CD version of the game. Just install this over your current DFX2 version using the "repair" install option when it asks.
