Are there good GUI tools for safe editing merks starting gear and merks themselves in this mod? Or at least a nice viewer to grab all data needed for xml-editing?

XML Editor in a separate folder, then manually copy changed xml files into your VR installation.

Quote:
Do you have somewhere a list with all secret items made by merging special components? It were helpful for players to know what this mod has to play with if you would open a topic sharing such a list! Updated with releases may be.

There is no such list, but you can see all merges and combo merges in XML Editor.

You can use Dansken's MercStartingGear editor for that:

Please check MercStartingGear_v1.6.accde.txt file in your VR main directory for proper instructions.

I'm not certain it's CTH related, but it is it possible to edit a .ini file to change the aiming cursor to the style where the tighter the white circle gets = higher the hit chance?

Hello!
Can someone explain what means "no support for NCTH"? Does that mean ignoring all settings under "Stance Modifiers" section in pic bellow:
http://my-files.ru/1yw142
Another question I care even more about. May I not also set aim levels for every weapon? Or is setting the number of aim levels part of NCTH too?

It means that you can only play with OCTH.

Quote:

Yes and all other NCTH related tags.

In OCTH, aim levels number is calculated from weapon type, used scope and shooter's skills. You cannot control it directly using tags.

Does the destruction of buildings affect the mining income or use of certain functions? I'm just wondering if accidentally blowing up a hole in the wall of one of the buildings at the Dam facility will affect my mining income. I assume that is true of the oil rigs when they are detonated?

Unlikely Cerhio, unless either miners or civilians are injured or killed in that sector, even more so if a head miner is killed which is possible on some of the oil rig maps. The Dam is unrelated to the mines, but again could affect town loyalty if a civ gets caught in the explosion.

There is no intro in Vengeance, so something is not right. Ensure you are playing with the Vengeance's own exe.

I'm not sure if a German install would affect things either even though Vengeance: Reloaded started as an English translation of the original (German) Vengeance mod. Someone else should be able to clarify this.

Hey,
is the fortification feature ingame?
I tried to use the shovel in building mode to get some sandbags but sometimes, in the bottem left corner, the game says that XY had to stop removing a fortification.

Sandbags do work, just not the advanced fortifications (using junk and rubble) I had that same warning come up too, and posted it on Flugentes fortifications thread here but didn't get a response.

http://thepit.ja-galaxy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&th=19975&goto=351320&#msg_351320

It's more of an annoyance than game breaker, I just found I had to click again or reposition my merc or that warning text appears but he still builds anyway.

Hello! Long time no bugs ;)

Found this NADA item. Figured I'd start letting you know about them because they're one of the few bugs I'm still seeing! Any idea what item this was supposed to be?

Hey Cerhio, whereabouts in G1 did you find that?

NADA items in Vengeance tend to be leftovers from the original mod where the item has changed ID's or is no longer in use.

This is what I noticed compared to old 1.13 when I played lately.
'Del' hotkey seems doesn't work anymore - it isn't showing up enemy's line sight. Is this changed in VR or in new version of 1.13 ?
How can I change this (maybe mod_settings.ini - which line) ?
Thanks in advance.

Edit:
I mean 'Del'.

You need to reinstall VR on a clean Ja2, as vanilla ja2.exe seems to break 1.13 installation somehow.
It is recommended to delete original ja2.exe after you install 1.13 or VR.

Ok done (reinstalled).
When I click 'Del' button I got this message in game log:
SHOWING DANGER ZONES FOR MERCENARY
DISABLING COVER DISPLAY


... and I can't even see this zone :/
Holding longer 'Del' button doesn't help. I don't know what's going on at this point.

That means your installation is broken somehow, because this file exists in VR SCI on my google drive and contains all needed overlay sprites.

It's archive from kermi:

I have Highl3.sti file in Data\tilesets\0 but it hasn't frames with overlay sprites like in your attachment.
I just unpack VR on clean JA2 Gold (Jagged Alliance 2 - version 1.12) from GOG and it's not working for me...

Didn't the game end and play the winning quotes afterward? It's been a long time since the final maps and pathways were discussed and completed. I've had to go through a number of old discussion threads to clarify if travel to the last locations were two-way. Originally they were only one-way at least once you are off the island. You could try and back-track your steps with the teleports you used.

Indeed they did, but at that point I realized I wanted to explore the map a bit further and complete a few more quests. So I resumed back a few minutes in time, in order to save officially winning for later happy

And thanks - your solution worked!

A problem I have:

Two of my mercs got food poisoning at some point, and it got way out of hand. Now their health bars are nearly completely green at all times, and their condition will worsen (terminally) if left untreated. I've managed to keep them stable by employing a small team of doctors who tend to these two patients 24/7 in-between sorties. The doctor activity eats up medkits at a fairly rapid clip, and sometimes I'll have one of them inexplicably use up some silly amount like 10 medkits in a few hours or so.

A weird phenomenon that happens is that one of the mercs will occasionally go into a coma, drop down to around -100 health, and have a really weird health bar for a while - although this state eventually resets.

With other mercs who got slight cases of food poisoning, they were able to go into full remission using an antidote or having a doctor look at them for a day or two.

Should I just accept the situation, or is there a way to cure severe cases of food poisoning like this? My theory is that if I'm really patient and have them sit in base for a looong time, they will eventually be fully healed. The reason being that the condition does seem to get slightly better over time if treatment goes on without interruption - although it's a very slow process. So far, I haven't had the patience to try that.

Hi All

Ok so this will be a total sucker question which I'm surprised to seem to be the first one to ask (on this forum?), buthow can I get to the Island? This is the first topic I've found that names it (Palaccio Island?).

I've been looking for way too long but can't seem to find the trick. Did I miss some important NPC? I found a clicky thingie but it just makes my IMP curse... I should add that I've been having some problems that force me to play the game windowed, making it impossible to fast travel south from within sectors.

Thanks a ton as I've been trying to finish this mod for what seems like forever since I hit this wall...

There was for quite some time a meandering path to the island in Malino bay (sometimes referred as Malino island or Palaccio, but that's just reference to the Palace there.)
