So the last time I played 1.13 was a few years ago. Recently got a new PC and got JA2 to work on windows 10 after some struggle. Installed JA2_113_FullRelease_English_7435 from 2014 (I believe). There are a lot of new features that I don't understand and could use help with.


1. Drassen mine attack is set to 'TRUE' in the JA2options.txt yet no attack came. What gives?

2. I googled some and figured out how to tell a merc to clean weapons with a weapon cleaning kit (CTRL + .). That did nothing as far as I can tell. I can also not repair weapons to 100% condition. Can someone point me to a tutorial please? I dunno how dirt works in the latest version.

3. I bought a spare barrel (7.62X51mm) for my machinegun guy, but I'm not sure how to use it?

4. It's day 4 in game or so, yet already I got ambushed. I remembered ambushing and it kills all my fun, is there a way to disable ambushes altogether?

5. I tinkered with the new webgear type stuff and figured out that I could attach a big leg rig to my leg and then attach "pouch" type items to it and customize it that way, but I could not figure out how the carabiner system works. Again if someone could point me to the right tutorial/thread I'd really appreciate it!


Well these are all the things I can remember for now. If you read this far then thank you. Looking forward to playing the game with these new features once I figure them out.

make sure that you also have istalled the fix for 7435, aka 7609
(Hit [V] in game to get feedback on version etc)
Or better use the latest dev build from depri

1. It may take some time until enough troops have gathered,
dunno how much time passed in your game since the palace sequence,
which triggers the primary counterattacks.
You can deactivate counterattacks in the .ini during a running campaign,
but that will not stop those that are already on the way to a town or sam site.

2.b Set [mercs_can_do_advanced_repairs = true] in \data-1.13\ja2options.ini
(partially balance the additional penalty someone put on top of an unrealistic weapon degrade rate
which itself is far beyond balancing reasons unless players use the drop_all cheat;)

4. A scout in squad will prevent ambushes, e.g. Elio from MERC is cheap.
There is also another option but my brain refuses to remeber it for some reason ;)
in case check the .ini file.

I googled the latest version, 7435 is what I found. With a patch. Damn it.

They are not gathering at all. It's day 4 or 5. I skipped the palace scene (read somewhere the cutscenes cause crashes!) but that can't be the reason?

Ok. Cool, thanks! thumbs up

I'll google it, see what I can come up with.

Thanks for the help! happy
