Joint Operations - Help Wanted

The Final version of the Advanced-Warfare Mod for Joint Ops has arrived.
It is available here http://www.awmod.com/board/index.php?area=vbcmsarea_content&contentid=8
I am quite impressed, it doesn't even look like JO, the colours, sounds, and details are a very large step above what we are used to in JO.
This is a stand alone Mod, all you need is JO:TR ver. 1.6.9.
JO:Escalation is NOT required. This means the mod is available to anyone that has any version of JO. It is a big download ( 2.1 GB or so), and it takes approx 1 Hr to install. That sounds like a pain, but it well worth the effort involved ( not much really, d/l before going to bed, install while you check e-mail, read the news, then play your new game).
This is the part where I need some help.
I have only played the demo version of DFX2, so I am not really well informed, but I think AW2 plays as well or better than DFX2. I'm not out to ruffle any feathers, just to come to an informed opinion. To those that have BOTH, please answer the poll. Feel free to explain your position in the posts, just remember to play nice!
Very Happy

So I take it it is an upgrade of AW MOD or a whole new thingy?

Have you updated to build 4.0(the final)?
I don't think anyone is running the Beta version anymore.

the Beta verson should be uninstalled( I just moved it to a new folder)
It will re-write your AW2 folder. It shouldn't remove any maps you had in your folder

Ask me when DFX2 has a mod. Right now it's like camparing JO to AW2 . Which would you vote for?

Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to play DFX2 but I do have the latest and final update for AW Mod and it is great, the many hours downloading and installing was worth it.

I dont think you can really compare DFX2 with the AW2 Mod ..... When the SO Mod is released for DFX2 ..... then it could be compared ...

I installed the AW Mod yesterday and even put a server up (although Babstats dont work for the updated Mod) running ..... DFX Maps (I still think there is a problem with the spawns) .... but it is definately worth the download time ..... and is very playable.

I have always liked the AW Mod ...... but also like the SO Mod ..... both IMHO are excellent Mods.

Cally is right. It's really apples to oranges at this point. Further down the line, when DFX2 has reached the equivalent of 'final build stage', then a proper comparison can be made. Until then...conjecture is half the fun, sometimes. Very Happy

I played a few Coop maps today ..... reminds me of the DFX BFM Mod ........ critters and flame throwers.

Love the flame throwers
Hate the critters

I have had DFX2 since they put it out here on DVD. The game is fine, but when they updated it I have had bad occasions of Sys dumps when trying to serve it.( just another Nova world put it out ther and fix it when we're around to it). AW mod build 4.0 is excellent, but now nova logic has updated JO and it doesn't work with out the painfull bit of uninstalling and reinstallling on a freash install with the new update. Having the same problem on the IC mod too but a freash reinstall doesn't help. Again both games are fine but I prefer the AW mod as it will take DFX and Jo maps. The med is good for making new maps,DFX maps should be tweaked with adding psp's at the waypoints to make them work.
