This tool is a replacement for the RAT DOS window and provides a graphicsl user interface to the remote tool built into Joint Operations. It provides all the features available via the RAT DOS tool, but in a graphical environment.
This utility is used to add the "funky" extended characters to your name
that gamers love. Normally with the Joint Ops demo your name can only
be standard characters but with this editor you can add characters such
as "† ® ™ €" and many others (128 additional in total).
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.
This mapping tool is created for Joint Operations, but can probably be used for DFX as well. It is made to combine the NILE and DFXMED editor by allowing project files to be converted between the 2 formats. The tool is intended for maps to be exported to .bms in the end using DFXMED, which unlocks more features for NILE users. Some of the features can be set up in NILE itself in the object properties, the converter will recognize and translate these extra settings to make it work again.
Please make sure you read the Readme.txt file before you install or upgrade your stats. It has all the information you need to install / upgrade your JOStats. If you need more help, please post in the forums here.
It uses a slightly modified version of the SuperOED, (c) by Novalogic. SuperOED was either not a final release or just crap, however, the creation of characters was not possible. So I modified the code to make that work ... but the ModSuperOED maybe does not work for anything else except for character creation after the code change. Try it, it might work, but I recommend to use the original SuperOED for buildings, vehicles, etc.
Included in this package is an example character, an Indonesian Rebel, we all had the pleasure to meet in game sometimes somewhere already ;-). The Rebel is not an remake or something, it's the original character I did convert from the game 3DI. Using some home made tools and scripts, I imported the character into 3D Studio Max.
