Anyone got this mod to run on Windows 10? I've tried everything I can think of. And the 1.13 version is dead now too isn't it? I'm going to try it on an XP VM next. Wish me luck...

There never was a 1.13 version of Shady Job.

Not a dedicated port, no; but Wanne made a load of UB mods run on 1.13 here- https://ja2svn.mooo.com/source/ja2/branches/Wanne/UB_113_Addons/Data-UB/Addons/. You know about those, don't you?
I've been working on this all weekend. Partly my fault for forgetting so much from a couple of years ago. I've got SJ to run over a plain install of UB (forgetting you need the other files was my mistake) and it works great with DXWnd if you can stand the tiny 640x480 window. There's no need for an older OS on a VM.
As for 1.13- I downloaded the stable (patched) 7609 build but still encounter the same problem sadly so I have no idea how to get the Wanne files to work. Same goes for Vietnam. There's a problem with a config file somewhere for SJ when you use the INI Editor. It doesn't point to the correct directory for the settings file so I moved it to where it was looking but that didn't fix things any better than they already were. I'm stumped with the whole thing to be honest but at least I now have a tidy Dev branch folder now (you were right about mine being a mess), two Stable folders of different versions (might be able to continue my original campaign now? Haven't checked yet) and can play SJ albeit not in a bigger resolution. I saw your posts in that thread about the mod from years back but I should pay more attention as I'm seeing now that there are other ways to play on a larger screen. Wonder if they still work now too. Anyway, this game may be the most frustrating to get to work but it's been rewarding catching up. I think... ;) Thanks for your help as always.
