You are able to install our Mod with BHD only or with BHDTS installed on your computer. Both BHD and BHDTS players can join a TIOcoop Mod server and play together.
TIOcoop Mod can play maps made for BHD, BHDTS and maps made through the Mods Mission Editor.
If you use the Medic Mod, you need to re-move the Medic Mod from your game folder or re-name it before you play any of our Mods.
If you do not re-move or re-name the Medic Mod and you try to join a TIOcoop Mod server you will be punted automatically.
You can always find server info Here in a post called TIO Server IP's and Ports
WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE TIOCOOP92 VERSION
A new look and layout to the game menu, new fonts, new continuous menu music, new Intro Video and a drum roll when entering a map.
The Camo Mission Editor was part of the TIOcoop92 but we removed it. It needs more work before it can be used. Your BHD player Character can still be in the correct Camo uniform for the terrain type. (Camo change instructions will be posted on our web)
AI (Artificial Intelligence)
AI will run left and right, roll left and right, go prone, dive to prone, stoop and walk, crawl forwards and sideways, draw backward and sideways, Knee and shoot, walk and shoot, run and shoot, shoot from prone, jump better and have some other styles of running.
New AI - There are AI that throw knives, grenades and flashbangs, A deadly flamerthrower AI, Four wounded soldiers laying on the ground with bodies that twist and flinch from the hips. Three skeletons - One all messed up, Three zombies - one crawls, another zombie walks and the other walk/runs real weird.
You will hear many different weapon sounds coming from the AI. You will have AI going prone, you think you killed them, you turn or go and see and they rise to a crouch and shoot you dead. Some AI will shoot you and then come up and Tea Bag you. Others will kill you and come over and put a few shots into your corpse for good measure.
New uniforms for player characters, New character faces, Player character speed has increased.
You will see many different FX, All splashes, ripples, wakes, fountains, bubbles and sprays will have a light blue look. Explosions will have a different coloured thicker smoke and the explosion flames will have a different look and shape. There will be FX giving your map Flying Moths, Butterflies, Fireflies, Mosquitos and Jumping Bugs. Bigger and better electrical sparks, Bigger killzones for explosions and debris spread to match.
Other FX - Fog Mist, Stars, Blinking Stars, Lightning, Large Dust Storms, Intermittent Dust Storms and a Nuclear Explosion Effect.
Most of the original BHD sounds have been refreshed and hundreds of new sounds added. Hundreds of dialog waves for SinglePlayer maps.
Seven Assualt Rifles, Five Sniper Rifles, Two Machine Guns, Five Hand Guns, Three (Stinger, Mortar, AT4) Launchers, Satchel Charge.
Flamethrower, Molotov Grenade, Throwing Knives, Flare Gun, Timer Satchel (Timer Satchel is non selectable, it's always carried). Thermite Flat Pack (Thermite Flat Pack is non selectable, it is a subclass to the Satchel Charge).
An update to the Stinger Missile Launcher, AT4 and Flare Gun (longer lasting Green Flares).

Updated Winter foliage, Heaps more Jungle and Desert foliage, New foliage for Volcanic Theme.
Jungle Huts, Jungle Structures, more City and Desert buildings, more Winter buildings and Volcanic buildings. Alot of new skins for buildings ( A lot of Skins are not too far removed from the original).
A Volcanic Theme has been added. Volcanic terrains, buildings and Rubble, Foliage, Rocks, Lava flows and Erupting Volcano Effects.
THINGS THAT EXPLODE OR GO BOOM (These items never exploded before)
Exploding Fire Barrel, Large Food Crate, C130 Plane, Three Team Sabre Large Oil Tanks, Fountain, Double Telegraph pole, Coffee Table, Small Field Armoury, 16ft Mesh Fence section. The Large Group of Grass catches fire and burns, leaving a clear field of view.
There is much much more then what is stated above, it's a mappers paradise and a great revisit for all players, especially for players who enjoy Co-Op.
Our aim with this version is to try and slow down the run and gun style of play and make you use a more tactical approach. Now that the AI are smarter, sharper and have weapons to match, your game play has to change. If you advance to fast you will die. We have a "No AI Re-Spawn" policy in our maps made for our TIOcoop92. So once you have battled hard for that ground, it's yours, no AI re-spawn. Our 92 test server has sixty maps in rotation, all with no AI re-spawn. You are able to install our Mod with BHD only or with BHDTS installed on your computer. Both BHD and BHDTS players can join a TIOcoop Mod server and play together. It does not matter what game type map is being hosted. Our Mod is a BHD Mod and when hosted on Novaworld it will display as a BHD server.
CRYSTAL BALL VIEW
If this Mod generated enough interest, we would consider converting it to a Mod for all game type and not just Co-Op.

||NovaHQ Heartbeat DLL (DF1 – DFBHD Lobby DLLs)
THESE ARE THE SAME FILES THAT WERE APPROVED FROM THQ FOR THE GOG RELEASE!
Now that we have our own game lobby (http://nw.novahq.net), we also needed our own lobby reporting tools.
While I’ve been busy porting my host tool (Now supports DF1, DF2 and DFLW (soon TFD and BHD)) over to all DF games, some people might not want to deal with additional tools running or already have their favorite host tool. Because of that, I have created replacement DLL files that will load automatically with your game whenever you are hosting. They will report your game status to the NovaHQ and NovaWorld.cc lobby automatically so anyone can join your game. Additionally, these files can be used to create your own lobby or server status for your own website.
I’ve created DLL files for DF1 – BHD. All you need to do is download the archive, find your game version and replace the files in your game folder. These files will not affect gameplay in any way; they work with all mods and simply report your games online status when you are hosting a “NovaWorld” game session. By default they report your games online status to http://nw.novahq.net and http://novaworld.cc but you can add an additional lobby if you choose. I will be releasing some sample PHP scripts that will show you how to display this information on your own website or even create your own lobby.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO RUN THESE FILES?
Because when / if NovaWorld goes down, servers that are running these DLL files will have a steady lobby to use for players to join through. AND with our alternate Startup.htm files NovaWorld is no longer necessary for players to join games. Yes that means no login or account required. This makes it easy to join games, without having to use pingers or any other software. All the player needs to do is load their game, click play online, and select a server to play in. Just like the good old days.
THESE DLL FILES WILL NOT AFFECT GAME PLAY IN ANY WAY AND WORK WITH ALL MODS. YOUR GAME WILL STILL REPORT TO THE OFFICIAL LOBBY LIKE NORMAL. THESE ALSO WILL NOT AFFECT ANY HOSTING TOOLS YOU CURRENTLY USE.
Information that is reported with these files: Map Name, Current/Max Players, Game Type, Time Remaining, Game Name, Port, Player Name, Team, Weapon, Kills, Deaths etc. Pretty basic stuff. An example of a server running these files can be seen here: http://nw.novahq.net/df2/info/0001500
NovaHQ would also like to thank Thor from NovaWorld.cc for hosting alternate lobbies for all this time, allowing the community to continue playing these great games without NovaWorld.

||NovaWorld Server Authentication
Since the current state of NovaWorld is unknown and has been unstable the last few months, I've made an app that will allow you to create a game session for LW, TFD, BHD and C4 even if NovaWorld is currently offline. This app will allow your game to create a "NovaWorld" session even if "novaworld.net" is offline.
To use it, open the app before launching the game. From there, nothing else is needed. Just launch the game and host as normal. The game will still report to the official game lobbies so when / if the lobbies come back online they will show.
This is only necessary if you cannot create a hosting session because NovaWorld is offline. If you get an "Unable to Host a Session" message when hosting. I figured I would release it now because of the current NovaWorld status.

||Delta Force – Now Available DRM free on GOG.com
NovaHQ at it again, this time working with GOG
NovaHQ has been working with the team from GOG.com over the last couple weeks to bring Delta Force 1, Delta Force 2, Land Warrior, Task Force Dagger, Black Hawk Down and Delta Force Xtreme to everyone, DRM free. The best part about this: these distributions from GOG.com include many fixes and patches as well as support for the alternate lobby (DF1-BHD).
Unlike the Steam or other versions, when you purchase your game copy from GOG.com your game will work after installing it without having to hunt down alternate patches to play online. You also do not need to register an account on NovaWorld to use the alternate lobby system. These patches were all approved for use by THQ Nordic for the GOG.com distribution.
NovaHQ would like to thank GOG.com for reaching out and working with us over the last couple weeks to provide an “Official” playable version of the game for people to purchase, DRM free.
You can purchase the entire (Except DFX2) Delta Force collection from GOG.com >>HERE<<

||NovaHQ Lobby Updates
Posted on NovaHQ
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 - DFTFD. I've also created various patches and new Startup.htm files for all four 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.
DF2 EVO Mod: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=581
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.
DF2 Host Tool: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=669
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.
Task Force Dagger:

DFBHD Patches: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=214
DFBHD Alternate Startup: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=704
DFBHD/TS Patches: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=215
DFBHD/TS Alternate Startup: http://novahq.net/files.php?ID=706
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.
