Hi all

I haven't been here since the early 2000's. I'm 67 now and diagnosis with onset Alzheimer's. Mental exercise is one part of my treatment and my doctor says video games would be helpful. Back in the day this game was the most fun and consumed most of my time so here I am. I've read all I can find on cheats and DL V1.06 & V1.13 patches with no luck. My gaming & computer skills have deteriorated immensely. Not sure if anyone can add that I haven't already read but praying there is. I'm actually at the point to PayPal to have someone use "Team Viewer" to properly install it......bummer. The game is a lot harder that I remember or I'm just too old and skills are all gone. sorry

The trick with v1.13 is to configure the INI to your liking. You can disable a lot of the hardcore stuff if you find the game way too hard. And welcome back to BP happy We are all a bit older since 2002

Hi Slayer,

don't feel bad, i'm a programmer and, when i tried to get back at this game last month, it took me days to find a updated working game.

i followed this guide on pbworks.com to the letter :

http://ja2v113.pbworks.com/w/page/4218345/Installation


only midgame i found that there's

7609 + AI project:

http://thepit.ja-galaxy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&goto=347454&#msg_347454

To use Ja2+AI, you need:
1. Make a clean install of Ja2 (or make a copy of clean Ja2).
2. Install 7609 release (if you use official release, install 7435 first then patch to 7609) <-- see the guide on pbworks.com
3. Download actual Ja2+AI.exe and copy into your Ja2 7609 folder.
4. Run Ja2+AI.exe instead of Ja2.exe

and that the svn repository is continuously improved: ( need a SVN client to download files )

https://ja2svn.mooo.com/source/ja2/trunk/Documents/

Arulco Vacations mod seem interesting too, which has a direct download:

many use the Wildfire mod 6.07 maps

oh, and start the game with "INI Editor.exe", somehow, it starts with less issues (?)

Thank everyone for your help. This place is as I remember it....nothing but good people. I PMed Tais about his kind offer. The last thing I did anything techy was dual booting a fresh copy of XP last year and that took a week to get done. Again thanks to all for all your help!
