In their ongoing mission to capitalise on memories of PC gaming 1992-2006, THQ Nordic have announced a new Comanche game. The publishers say this is “based on” Novalogic’s Comanche sim series from the 90s, though the only similarity seems to be having helicopters. THQ Nordic say this here new Comanche is a “modern, team-based online multiplayer helicopter shooter” where players will also fly wee drones fighting each other. Okay. That’s fine and all but this does sound far enough beyond the original concept that using the Comanche name might mostly remind people of what the game is not. Weird.
I cannot deny: those are indeed helicopters. Here, the similarities end. Novalogic’s Comanche games were on the arcadier end of the sim scale but sure didn’t have drones or cloaking devices. And were primarily singleplayer. And agh, why would you not give this game its own name? It comes across as a lack of confidence in the game standing on its own merits. But are people who fondly remember a decades-old sim series the sorts to now be looking for 4v4 multiplayer with dronefights? Weird.
Nostalgia’s a hell of a drug, I suppose. That’s the guiding principle of THQ Nordic, a company so keen to capitalise on nostalgia that they bought and wear the name of a dead publisher.
Made by Nukklear, this here new Comanche is due to enter Steam Early Access in early 2020, by the end of March. No firm word yet on how long early access will last, or how big the plans are. WEIRD. See the game’s website for more.

92 TIO Mod
Ok guys if you have Black Hawk Down, you should download the 92 TIO Mod!
We are getting lots of players trying to join the servers and getting punted straight away due to not having the Mod. This is frustrating for the player whom can't join and for us because it could be another player to help the team get through the map
The mod is FREE and a hell of a lot of fun to play.
Played Multi Player but have you tried COOP?
COOP puts a different spin on the game rather than the common MP style game play.
Servers, we have servers being hosted in USA, EU, AU
Visit www.tiocoop.com for more info on the mod including video clips, images, maps and downloads.

MED Fixer 2018 (BHD / C4 / DFX / JO)
If you've been having issues launching the BHD / C4 / JO Med (Or any other NovaLogic med) recently, Sil and I have found a fix for it.
Download the NovaLogic Med Fix from NovaHQ below, extract the two files and run the "RunMe.bat" file. This will install a set of compatibility flags for the mission editors to help them run properly under Windows 10 1703+.
Thanks to everyone that has posted information they have found that lead to this discovery.

DF1 32 Player Patch
Thanks to Frank from the NovaHQ forums, we now have a 32 player patch for Delta Force 1 that is working perfectly. I've already updated the DF1 Host Tool as well as the Heartbeat DLL's so they are compatible with this new patch.

DF2 UN-FREEZE fix official release
So, with help from a dude who I only know as Frank, I’ve made a patch that allows you to unfreeze your DF2 game. With this patch, when your game freezes, simply press the INSERT key on your keyboard the game should resume like normal. After you download it, replace all the files in your games folder with the contents of the "DF2Fixes" folder. PLEASE read the readme.txt for help or post here. Again, when you appear to freeze while playing DF2, if you have this patch installed, you can simply press the INSERT key on your keyboard and the game will resume like normal. You’ll keep your score and everything.
This fix is compatible with any server, including DF2 EVO servers. As well as all COOP and Single Player! Literally any DF2 server or game. Press the INSERT key to unfreeze your game when it appears frozen.

JOBotz makes AI bots in game Joint Operations behave dynamically. Nothing is pre-scripted, the addon figures out where to move the bots.
The addon manages the targets where to send the bots and does its own path-finding. Since there is no extension API for the game Joint Operations, the amount of information that the addon has access to is minimal. That means that the offered funtionality of the addon is limited, so don't expect some clever behavior from the bots, or perfect pathfinding.
Currently the JOBotz addon can make the bots play AAS maps:
° The bots attack the active LFP targets
° The bots respawn at fully captured LFP targets
° The presence of bots affects the takeover of LFP targets
° But currently the bots themselves cant take over LFP target (they can't flip the flag)
° The addon requires around 500MB of memory for its own purposes, depending on map size and complexity.
° Some of the calculation is CPU intensive, if this proves to be a problem for someone using the addon, i will try to implement possibilities to limit CPU usage.
° Install Java 8 from www.java.com.
° Make a new folder of your choice. For example C:\Games\JOBotz.
° Extract the ZIP file to the new folder.
° Copy the files from "maps" subforder to where your Joint Operation game is installed.
Using the addon:
° Start the addon by doble-clicking the "jobotz.cmd" batch-file.
° A message will appear repeatedly in the console: "Waiting 3 sec for JO process"
° The addon is ready to interact with the Joint Operations game.
° Start the game, you can start a LAN game or connect to Novaworld.
° You can use both dedicated serving and serve&play.
° If you intend to play alone, host a LAN game in serve&play mode.
° Currently only a modified stock map Karo Highlands (file AS-KaroBOTZ.npj) with 100 bots on each side (200 bots total)
° Further maps can be prepared to work with the addon, i'll make a tutorial and tools for prepaing own or other stock maps for use with JOBotz

° This is alpha software, so you might lose time trying to get it work, or it might crash.
° The bots might not be as fun to play as expected.
° And remember, the bots are not sentient

Looking for Mod Team
We are looking at putting a Mod Team together.
Got a mod in mind or started a mod and stuck in some area? Join in and work together to make a mod team.
I know there are quite a few people out there with half made mods not finished because they are stuck on something or need a hand to finish it. So why not work together as a team that you can finish your own projects as well as working on new ones.
We need people with skills, most people these days have a strong area and weak areas.
Lets say your good with PhotoShop but not much with 3dmax. You could do the graphic side and we would help you learn 3dmax in return. It's about sharing and helping each other for a better good.
We can offer:
TeamSpeak to chat to each other
Forums to post info and share ideas
A Project Module to keep track of everything
When finished, Hosting of Mod
If your interested in joining the team post in the forums, even if your not interested in being in the team but have ideas you want to share please do
