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!

Found a bug with NovaHQ DFLW lobby.
If you host 64 players the Netsock.dll drops it to 16 players max

So i have the option of showing in NovaHQ lobby with 16 players or Novaworld Lobby with 64 players, be good if i could have both

So you must be using the Heartbeat DLL file with the 64 player patch? I haven't seen anyone use the 64 player patch in ages so I didn't include support for it . I will try and make it compatible with the DF2 and TFD ones also. I hope the player lists are the same
