NovaHQ at it again this time with new tools
DF1 COOP Map Cycle fix
DF1 Alternate Lobby
|Delta Force 1 never really had any sort of COOP community because the COOP system was broken. Maps didn't auto cycle for hosts, and players were always punted at the end of every mission. Well today (15 years too late), it's been fixed. I've made a COOP patch for both clients and hosts. The Host tool is being tested with success right now (NOVAHQ STOCK in the NovaWorld DF1 Lobby) and you can download the client patch here: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=577|
All you need to do is download that file, and keep it running while you're playing in a DF1 COOP server. It will automatically cycle you with the host. The host tool, available here will auto cycle the missions so dedicated servers can be run unattended.
Also, this weekend I built an Alternate Lobby for DF1. You can now see players in game, join servers directly from this lobby, and there is much more coming soon. Players can use this lobby by modifying their Startup.htm file and hosts will show in the lobby with the DF1 Host Tool. Now there is no worry if NovaLogic/NovaWorld goes belly up. DF1 can live on forever
Delta Force 2 Alternate Lobby:
It looks like Thor has been busy building a new DF2 alternate lobby. There is now a DF2 section on NovaWorld.cc.
