it's more like an unofficial spiritual successor of The Specialists, yet DAB is something much different than all that came before. It has, I feel, a lot more depth other than just shootin' around, it's quite a new direction for "matrix" mods.

I like "Boogaloo" because it screams 'tacky b-grade asian action movie title'. But I can't think of anything that is different enough but still carries that sentiment. Double Action: Action Harder?

Hi guys, thanks for this fantastic mod, can't wait for the next version! 8) Anyway, I have a suggestion that should make you think about action movies stereotypes and over the top hollywood action! Double Action: Hero :D

Had a chance to jump on and play around a bit. Some cool ideas. I have to say though, the name and the video is what brought me in, but I really think you guys are going to confuse and maybe piss off AHL /AQ2 fans with that name. I was fooled. If it's more a spiritual successor to the Specialists, why not go with that? That had a huge player base at the time.

lol it is a spiritual successor of TS but we weren't going to make it TS:Source as DAB is much different than TS, having Boogaloo as a codename also gives the mod a unique title.

I'd go for Double Action: Style Overload, it's perfectly balanced (stupid-serious, generic-specific etc). :)

I read that as "Style Overlord," which I might like even better.
