BHD / C4 / DFX / JO Med Fix (UPDATED 2018/02/05) 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.

Thanks to everyone for all the information that helped make this app possible.

JOBotz - Dynamic AI Bots by Arwill JOBotz makes AI bots in game Joint Operations behave dynamically. Nothing is pre-scripted, the add-on figures out where to move the bots.

The add-on 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 add-on has access to is minimal. That means that the offered functionality of the add-on is limited, so don't expect some clever behavior from the bots, or perfect path-finding.

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)

Requirements:
° 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.

Installation:
° Install Java 8 from www.java.com.
° Make a new folder of your choice. For example C:GamesJOBotz.
° 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.

Maps included:
° 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 add-on, i'll make a tutorial and tools for preparing own or other stock maps for use with JOBotz

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.

NovaHQ Heartbeat DLL Update (1.0.5 + PHP Status Script) 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!

RELATED INFO
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 TIOCOOP192 VERSION

GAME MENU
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.

MISSION EDITOR
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.

PLAYER CHARACTERS
New uniforms for player characters, New character faces, Player character speed has increased.

EFFECTS

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.

SOUNDS
Most of the original BHD sounds have been refreshed and hundreds of new sounds added. Hundreds of dialog waves for SinglePlayer maps.

Updated Winter foliage, Heaps more Jungle and Desert foliage, New foliage for Volcanic Theme.

BUILDINGS
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).

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

------------------------------------------------------------

OBJECTIVE
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.
