This download includes ALL the fully patched files needed to host and join servers using the official NovaWorld lobby. You do not need any other patches to play or host games on NovaWorld.
After you have a fully updated game, replace all files in your game folder with the files in the archive. That's all you need to do. This includes the new Startup.htm files!
This patch includes the DF2 "Unfreeze" or "Freeze Fix" patch. When your game freezes, press the INSERT key on your keyboard and the game should resume as normal. No more having to exit out and restart your DF2 game!
STEAM USERS: DO NOT LET STEAM VALIDATE YOUR GAME INSTALL OR IT WILL UNDO THIS.
