||Hawkeye, I would like to introduce myself and also thank you very much for your mod! You see I sadly am a widower who sadly lost my wife and my children in late 2017. This game and your mod got me through some extremely difficult times and allowed me to focus on things besides my loss. I found it one day after not having played JA2 for like 10 years. So thank you for all your time and effort it is much appreciated!! Also, I have always been a Paradox Interactive player for like forever and have modded them just as long. I have as a hobby been practicing and modding this game or learning to as it is a bit challenging. If you need any assistance I gladly offer my services to assist you in your mod. Warms regards Stavian

Could you do a new exe to Vengeance?
Thank you in advance
Many thanks to all those who make new features for Jagged Alliance 2.
New mod + new map (JA2 map with Drassen, Omerta, Cambria etc, edited or not-it has been repeatedly ) with large sectors + two additional levels + a lot of new tileset + moving vehicles = fun for months, years. Fun with creation, fun playing this mod.

||BETA 5 Changelog (11th July - 2nd Jan 2019)
CODE & GENERAL GAME
default Ini settings changed
lowered MAX_STRATEGIC_ENEMY_GROUP_SIZE to 20
set MINES_SPOTTED_NO_TALK = TRUE
less aiming in heap firing mode
lowered prone cover effectiveness
set TILES_MOVED_PER_BONUS_TOLERANCE_POINT = 10 for better suppression tolerance balance
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
(NUMBER_OF_MAJOR_TRAITS_ALLOWED, MAX_NUMBER_OF_TRAITS_FOR_IMP - 1)
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)
