Post subject: Fixing the Fix
When Nova came out with their updated exe. file for JO, it fixed some things that weren't broken, and broke a bunch of stuff that worked well. It causes sysdumps on maps that were fine, and with all mods.
To play JO:TR ESC or IC4 on Novaworld servers you need the new exe. file(1.7.xx), but for the AW2, there is an easy fix.
The easy fix for that is to revert back to the old exe. file, found here:
Just create a folder to put the old exe. file in (you may want to keep it for sentimental reasons), Drag the 1.7.xx file into this folder, then drag the exe.file you just d/loaded into the AW2 folder.
Now you can play all the maps without mysterious sysdumps, unexplained lag, and events that don't work. Unfortunately, the old exe. (188.8.131.52)doesn't support widescreen, or squad tags, but that is a small price to pay for a smooth running game.
PM me if you have any problems, and I'll do my best to help

I just bought JO:TR
What else i need?
Do i have too use the terrain pack SONIC and is it recommended too use Harry's DISU soundpack, just like in DFX?
I think i try the unmodded JO, the ICE mod and ofcourse the AW2 mod.

@Koolone, please dont hijack threads, and please don't shout.
@ChevyRider, All you need is JO:TR, then d/l AW2 from here:
This will install AW2 in its own folder, completely seperate from JO:TR and any other NovaLogic games.
I dont think you will need any soundpacks, as the modder for AW2 has done a wonderful job.
As for the ICE mod, I dont know that anyone is playing it anymore. This updated exe. file has caused many problems with it, and I'm not sure anyone is trying to fix it. We will just have to wait and see.

No hi-jack was attempted, he was just making a comment. If people
have comments to posts the in forum they should pm the person before
posting if they have an issue. Sorry if my issues are different from the investigations that youhave done into the lag problem and other issues involved with AW2. Thank you for your research.
One squad member was just worried about my situation and mistook the
information you presented on the forums. NO one is trying to steal, scream,
shout, yell or un-thread any posts in the forum.
My apology if someone mis-took or mis-understood a post. Just like we all
should do is load our guns before we shoot.
Please pm me if there is an issue. I apologize again if a post was mistaken, get the facts first. It helps all involved.

I installed JO:TR and put in the old exe V 184.108.40.206.( not last update)
Then made a new empty map with only the AW2 built 4.0 setup. exe mod in it and ran it.
Works fabulous, everything what was in ALL previous DFX mods, what was good is in it.
This is what DFX2 should be.
