Hello there,

Been a long time player of JA2 as I have kept my old Windows 98 or XP (honestly forget) computer simply so I can keep playing this game.

I currently own the disk to JA2, and would like to get it to work on my laptop instead of always needing to go on my old computer to play it. I've been able to get the disk to load and run, but it is very slow. I am not a modder or much of a computer guy; I'm sure its already well known why it is so slow.

I'm guessing there is something I need to download/install to get it to run, but I can't figure it out.

Most of the videos I find on Youtube is for the 1.13 mod (which I may get to someday) but would like to see if I can get my disk version to work first. If anyone could help that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Anyone have any idea?

I was able to remove the intro video to get it to work. I've also watched some youtube videos and when firing on my game it is about 10 slower for each shot. The beginning Arulco battle alone can take over an hour. I'm guessing it must be some sort of resolution or frame rate issue?

Is there anyway to improve it or fix it?

Hello,
the single click installer for 1.13 comes with a Docs Folder which contains Compatibility Fixes for Windows 8-10. Even if you use vanilla they might help you. I am not sure about that, though.

Hey thank you for the reply. Is the single click installer part of the download for 1.13 or is it a separate download file? Sorry I'm searching the forum and having difficulty finding it.

Thank you,

I can't post links yet. It's in Depri's v.1.13 Builds repository pretty much at the top of the page. Subcategory is SCI (single click installer). You can pick the Jul.15 one in the top row, so you also have the latest version in case you want to test 1.13 at some point.

So extracting this in your Ja 2 folder would give you a working 1.13 game (hence the name). Just extract it somewhere else (best would be a new folder since these are a lot of files) and take a look at the Docs folder that comes with it.

Ok, now i have 5 posts and can post links cheeky https://onedrive.live.com/?id=13A6926EAC52083%21583&cid=013A6926EAC52083

Thank you! I'll download that and look in the files to find the compatibility fixes.
