Early on in development the team decided to withhold the cheat feature, one of the main reasons for this was to encourage play testers to report bugs and evaluate balancing better. Unfortunately the GABBI cheat can compromise the game's integrity, and no one wants to seek out bugs that normally wouldn't appear without cheating.

This may change in the future as Vengeance has been around for a couple of years now publicly, but we are still searching and destroying bugs when we can find them.

This fixes a number of hard coded SCUD and MLRS fire supports in certain maps that were going astray in the old game. Art imitates life sometimes, but now bombing should be more considerate of your squad.

This exe should also fix issues faced by some players attempting to give Carmen Mendax' and Morris' head.

This exe has not been heavily tested, so as usual we suggest keeping a duplicate of your old exe safe somewhere, just in case.

Thanks goes to Anv for these fixes, Fan for reporting the fire support issue and Sucho for the head problems. Keep 'em coming!

BETA 5 Changelog (11th July - 2nd Jan 2019)


default Ini settings changed
less aiming in heap firing mode
lowered prone cover effectiveness

set TILES_MOVED_PER_BONUS_TOLERANCE_POINT = 10 for better suppression tolerance balance

Ja2_Vengeance.exe r1969
r8596 Fix: throwing knives disappear when hitting corpses (by Flugente)
suppression: better integer calculation of AP loss
don't show "blow up" in transformation menu for grenades/explosives with 'flare' flag

r8586 fix: release exes could crash when hovering in the save screen (by Flugente)
r8589 fix: invalid edgepoint selection (by The_Bob)
small code improvements

r8581 fix: deleting a face with invalid pointer leads to first mercs having Skyrider's face (by Flugente)
r8582 fix: face gear was not shown for non-IMP mercs if their face index wasn't their profile number (by Flugente)
don't allow drinking from canteen with status 1
r8583 fix: when Larry changes profiles, several stats are not properly copied; when Larry changes profiles, Goodguy is always copied over (by Flugente)

<PercentStatusDrainReduction>: better integer calculation, always use at least 1 kit point
voice taunts: fix for using last taunt variant
check that " LAST" file exists before playing custom last sound to avoid warnings in log files

Fix: Get Item assignement: if no valid gridno is found, let the game find one upon loading the sector instead of risking a

wrong gridno assignment
Fix: When dropping an item in strategic inventory, height values are not set
Fix: When looking for a valid gridno to drop items t via strategic inventory, WORLD_ITEM_REACHABLE is not reliable, as

updated map topology trumps this. Instead rely upon finding a valid gridno once the sector is entered.
Fix: when searching for a new item dropoff gridno, search for new height too
Fix: if items are spawned mid-air, the player cannot retrieve them

r7995 bugfix: Reinforcements: Parts of roadblocks were resurrected after reinforcements death (by navaroe)
r8100 fix: sometimes items moved by the MOVEITEM assignment are left unreachable
r8050: When displaying a merc's maximum assignment points, factor in backgrounds values.

Bugfix - POWs' activity level being overwritten

Bugfix - mercs treated at facilities should not use mercs' medkits
Bugfix for facility patients not detected as being in a facility
Bugfix - iBurstAPCost was ignoring half of its calculation due to extraneous semicolon
r7724 Bugfix: When using a vehicle to move to an enemy sector mercs will force exit the vehicle. In this case the team panel sort order was random depending on which merc was last selected. This problem occurred because the sort function for the squad was not called for this scenario. It is now called whenever a merc is added to a squad. Because of this the call for the sort function was removed from function SetAssignmentForList(). We do not need to call it twice.

Fix: if merc cannot complain about his equipment due to being asleep or on duty, retry an hour later
Fix: in AIM bios, show max life, not life at start of game
Fix: typo resulted in AIM mercs not refusing job because of hated mercs present when they should do so

r8384 fix: crash when loading a savegame repeatedly due to initialisation flag not being reset (by Flugente)
r8380 fix: crash when entering combat without any mercs in sector on duty (by Flugente)
new function: NumPlayerTeamMembersInSector (returns how many members of a team are in a sector - only intended for OUR_TEAM!

POWs not included)
r8385 Fix: deadlock on ammo creation popup
r8391 Fix: When reading in Skills_Settings.ini, NUMBER_OF_MAJOR_TRAITS_ALLOWED_FOR_IMP is now limited by min

r8395 Fix: If troops spawn at the very northern edge of a sector, we often barely see them, and cannot target their head or

torso. To stop that from happening, do not spawn there. (by Flugente)
r8397 fix: game info display showed incorrect levels for BR
r7337: If <BloodiedItem> is set on a blade, the blade weapon will be replaced with the specified item when a person is hit with it. (by Flugente)

fixes from The_Bob:
Fixed random freeze on win8/10
Fixed crash on mercs entering sector
Fixed crash when using cover display (del/end)

Improvements to a number of Deadly Games mercs, Sparky sound volume and PCM speech files


Fixed SIG MP41/44 picture.

Changed attributes of SKS PU to differ from SKS. Now better accuracy, needs more handling. Added weight and cost to differentiate SKS PU with standard SKS.

Reduced cost of ALICE back pack, but doesn't seem to work as it should.

Reduced Bobby Ray's overlong description on Police utility vest.

Made Regen booster $80 more expensive. Reduced cost of Blood Transfusion bag to $1800. Originally intended to change regens in medics inventories but cost would still be too high.

Removed broken glass jar from Mitch's Doctor's kit.

Hector gets revised Premium kit, no more double knives.

Morris starting gear update.


Renamed Palaccio to Palacio Island (Spanish spelling for Palace) reduced Rebel sentiment, this one must've slipped through when first being created.

Added the ability to train militia at Doran oil rig as it is attached to the main town sector (fast travel) will also add more housing to other Doran sectors to reflect this.

Added church facility to Doran J3.

Added bar to F10 Distribution Center.

Edited references to Waldo on mechanical sites outside of Drassen.
