So you want to play online right?

It's not as hard as you think. Select from the following options.

CD Install

  1. Install DF, duh!
  2. Open or remember the directory DF is installed to e.g
    C:\Program Files\NovaLogic\Delta Force
  3. Grab the following download;
    1. Includes Pre-patched Delta Force V1.00.03.03P (with Update/DynPorts) and netsock.dll
  4. Extract the zip file to somewhere easy to locate and execute in the following order;
    1. Copy all files and overwrite existing.
    2. This was longer but thanks to Panther at NovaHQ for a pre-compiled patch
  5. Boot DF.exe and start playing! Easy wasn't it!

Steam Install

  1. Grab the following download:
    1. DF1 Fixer
  2. Extract the zip file to somewhere easy to locate and leave the window open.
  3. Run Steam.
    1. Right click on Delta Force in Steam.
    2. Select Properties.
    3. Navigate to the Local Files tab.
    4. Select Browse Local Files.
    5. The Steam directory for DF should now be open.
  4. Copy the netsock.dll from the Lobby Fix directory.
    1. Paste into Steam directory and overwrite the existing netsock.dll (Optional: DF.exe if you wish to host, AppFix to remove borders).
  5. Copy the startup.htm & browser.htm from the Startup Fix directory.
    1. Paste into Steam directory and overwrite the existing startup.htm & browser.htm. This will allow you to play online via NovaHQ alternative lobby, even if Novaworld is down (which is highly likely).
  6. Launch DF in Steam and start playing! Easy wasn't it!

Undocumented Features

For better, more detailed support visit the Facebook Group or Nova HQ and post a question.

  • Patch won't install?

  • Run as Administrator, don't extract the .zip to same directory as DF.

  • I have a white bar around DF on Windows 8/10?

  • Download the DF1 Fixer, which contains everything needed to play and install the AppFix

  • Steam Version?

  • Do not validate Steam Install. If you only want to play online, just replace netsock.dll and startup.htm & browser.htm. If you want to host replace DF.exe and the previously mentioned files.

  • Hosting Online

  • If you wish to host online, first ensure you have patched correctly by applying Dynamic Ports patch and netsock.dll. Second ensure you have made a firewall exception and opened your ports UDP 3568, 3569.
