I just wanted to let all y'all who are Novalogic fans or (Armored Fist 3 fans) know that online multiplayer gameplay for Armored Fist 3 is no longer dead, but is Alive and well!
[my reasoning is that if I can "advertise" this info to enough Novalogic fans AF3 servers (novaworld.cc) may be "repopulated"/filled]
DOWNLOAD LINK to the Alternative Novaworld server fixes are available on Moddb and in the youtube video description.
So please share this info. Would be nice to see 32 player AF3 online games
If you have the ability, please download the online server fixes for moddb and startup your own server. Thank You.

I am currently hosting a dedicated host on novaworld.cc called "AF3 DM 2019". I have one unmanned player joined in called "inactivePL" because the game requires two players to join before it will unpause and start the round.
If you plan join any server on novaworld.cc or to host your own server on novaworld.cc please download the server fixes from moddb: Moddb Link
Also, if you what to host a server that cycles through several maps please download the Armored Fist 3 mappack from moddb: Moddb Mappack Link
And be sure to port forward: UDP 2803, TCP/UDP 3587, and TCP/UDP 19187.
I bet Armored Fist 2 could be fixed up to be multiplayer functional as well! Um... Local Lan gameplay by using ipxwrapper . What is your opinion of which is funner to play, AF3 or AF2? I've never played AF2 and the only reason I tried AF3 was that: It was the "newest verison", it has infantry, and that's about it. If the gameplay is better in AF2 I would certainly switch over to that, because AF3 multiplayer has terrible terrible LAG in Coop and even deathmatch. If AF2 has less multiplayer Lag... Well there's the game to play!
I never got AF2 working after I moved off XP, might work in DoSbox or something, so am VERY rusty there. I think 2 and 3 were much the same, except 3 added infantry who ran around like ants but didn't do much else. Only ever played both in SP.
This clip has about everything I preferred about AF2, including that music, the cutscenes, and the DI - I was quite disappointed they didn't all make it into AF3.
