 Novalogic Update
Posted by Godfather - 10-26-05 06:48 - 1 comments

NovaLogic has released a new update for Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising, Escalation, and the recently released Joint Operations Combined Arms. For those whose product version is up to date, the size of the update to be downloaded is approximately 10MB. You can update the game by selecting �update� from the main menu screen in the game or in the Joint Operations program group in your Windows Start Menu. For those experiencing trouble using the update service, the update can also be downloaded from www.NovaLogic.com.

 Rock On!
Posted by Godfather - 10-12-05 12:51 - 1 comments

Revised & Re-Released!

I have gone in and took a second look at the mission in order to correct the "Mission to big" problem, some people were reporting. To be very honest I'm well under the suggested limits by as much as 50% so there was little that could be trimmed, but I manged to go from 263K to 248k so maybe its enough to solve the problem. "To be honest I never could cause the error, so I don't know it's fixed" But it the best I can do without changing aspects of the mission.

I'm pleased to announce my latest Coop Mission for Joint Operations and the Reality Mod is now available. Get your copy here first!

Posted by Brad.G - 09-12-05 07:58 - 0 comments

The basics of it

UPDATED attachment on 30/10/05

What is a wac file?
Well a wac file is what makes events happen

what are events?
hmm , your going to be a tough one to teach aren't you
an event is something what happens in the game.
for example an AI attaching to a gun, or an AI running along the ground, or creating atmospheric changes such as rain, thunder and lightning in your maps, or having text appear , or having something blow up automatically as you get close to it , or shooting a radio component to make a gate unlock .. the list goes on and on and on and on.......

where is the WAC file?
when you save your map in nile, it will automatically generate a WAC file , and save it in the sam ...read more

 Amorain Fx - Artillery
Posted by Godfather - 09-5-05 07:49 - 0 comments

How to use AmoRain to create an Artillery Barrage.

However it depends on area triggers, but I guess it could be modified to use some other triggers.

It involves using 6 Triggers on the ground, that detect movement. When an area is entered it will trigger the FX and when you leave the area the FX stop. By using multi area you can track the player on the ground, and give the effect the artillery is following them.

// Artillery FIRST WAVE
if area 1 then ; SOUTH WEST
; if random 2 then ; pause
ammoarea(ammo_AI_mortar, 1)
; endif ; end pause
if area 2 then ; SOUTH
; if random 2 then
