These DLL files replace a couple files in your games folder. THEY WILL NOT AFFECT GAME PLAY IN ANY WAY AND WORK WITH ALL MODS.
I finally got around to creating the PHP Status Scripts for the NovaHQ Heartbeat DLL. Along with the new PHP Script are some minor fixes to the DLL's and support for the new TIO Coop Mod.
With the latest Heartbeat DLL files (1.0.5) you'll now be able to send your games status to your own website. It's pretty easy to setup and install. Read the Readme-PHPScript.txt file for info on how to use the DLL with the PHP Scripts. I still see a lot of websites that manually update their server status, so this may be really useful for some people.
In addition to reporting your games status to your own website, the game will still report it's status to NovaHQ, Novaworld.cc as well as the Official NovaWorld lobby. These files do not affect game play in any way, and work perfectly with the official lobby and any other hosting tool out there that you probably currently use.
20+ servers from DF1 to BHD are now running these files without any issues. I really appreciate everyone that has helped and please continue to help spread the word. The more servers that use these DLL's, and the more players that use the custom Startup.htm
files, the better. I see so many people on Facebook say they can't play when NovaWorld is down. These two tools completely remove the requirement for NovaWorld as well as work perfectly with the Official NovaWorld lobby. They are also very easy to use. Drop them into your games folder, overwrite when asked and you're done!
