Hello Folks!

It's been way too long since I've last been here. Real Life, as always, keeps me away...

I now have a Win. 10 system. My screen resolution is 1800 x 900.

I installed v1.13 and the latest build of Vengeance Reloaded (from early Oct., 2019).

I'm really enjoying the advances in the gameplay, however, I'm pretty desperate to get access to the lower bar GUI, where we can see our mercs' portraits along with a view of the weapon that they're using.

One can see what I want be looking at this video from the wonderful Sevenfm:

Is there a setting that I'm missing, or a keybind, or...?

Also, I enabled watching the full flight path of shot bullets. I regret my decision on that option, and would like to disable it. Only problem? I can't find it in the .ini's I've been looking through. Could someone supply me with the exact name of the .ini I need to alter, along with the keyword search I'll need to do to disable this feature?

Thanks in advance for any detailed help that you send my way.

I think it's "Show misses" option in the ingame options, it's not in the INI.

Sevenfm,

Thank you for your help. You were correct on where that setting could be found.

Any idea why I'm not seeing the portraits/weapons of the mercs at the bottom of the scrren as we find in your videos?

I've tried 7 different screen settings, going all of the way down to the smallest. None of those alterations led to my seeing the mercs' portraits/weapons at the bottom.

I don't understand what you mean, sorry. In the video you posted in this thread there is standard 1.13 team panel, nothing more.
If you mean Tactical Panel feature, it only works in Ja2+AI for 7609, it can be enabled in the ingame settings, and you need to limit the squad size when you start the game - 6 for 800 screen width, 8 for 1024 screen width.

Yes. I'm certain that we're both talking about the same thing.

More specifically, I'm talking about the lower bar of information on one's team. In the video, there is room to display x7 mercs, I have x7 mercs exactly. That information bar that displays the team and their weaponry - I don't have it in my game.

If I press the tilde (~) key, an information window appears for the merc that is in-use, and it displays SOME of his gear, but not his weapon. There's no way to navigate to another part of that "inventory" screen to find his weapon.

I don't know if I accidentally activated a new method of displaying (not!) team info, and it's just not working, or...?

During my game, there are NO mercs displayed on the bottom. If I press that ~ key, then a SINGLE merc, the one that is highlighted, appears. I'd love to have what is displayed in the posted video - it would be VERY useful.

Again, thank you for your help and time.

@Kyle
Then something is wrong with your game, try reinstalling it. Also check your video/display settings in case not the full screen is shown.
I never heard of the bug when standard team panel is not shown in stock 1.13.

I'm not playing stock 1.13.

I installed GOG.com's JA2.

Then I installed the latest build of 1.13.

I installed the necessary files for it to run properly on Win. 10.

Then I installed Vengeance Reloaded. The latest build.

Is there a screen resolution I should try? I have a 1920 x 1080 monitor.

Maybe I should reinstall 1.13 over the top of Vengeance Reloaded...?

As far as I know, you don't need stock 1.13 to install Vengeance:Reloaded, you should install it on vanilla Ja2. Especially you should not install unstable builds to VR folder.
If you read the official install instructions for VR, it clearly says you unpack it over clean vanilla Ja2 and play, nothing more:
Quote:
just extract this over a fresh JA2 install, that's it, ready to play

And you should run Ja2_Vengeance.exe, not vanilla Ja2.exe or stock 1.13 Ja2.exe

Thank you for the advice.

Fresh install.

Did NOT install 1.13.

Did install Vengeance Reloaded.

Created x2 IMP characters, hopped into the game with all of the default settings.

Still no character info display at the bottom of the screen.

It does sound very odd, and not a feature we have edited in Vengeance apart from the Battle statistics panel which can be present in most resolutions, I can't remember if that is optional in the ini, you could perhaps turn it off to see, but I am literally 'clutching at straws' here. Seven is also correct that you do not need install stock 1.13, as all the 1.13 files are already present in our later download packages. I'd also suggest doing what he said and check your video, even ensure your graphics card drivers are up to date. Have you also tried playing in windowed mode to see if that changes anything?

If you can send a screen shot that might help, but until someone else also faces the same problem it's very hard to work out why it's happening to you.

And that DID it...! big grin

NOW the mercs' information bar is properly showing at the bottom. Terrific!

And THANK YOU to both Sevenfm and yourself for so patiently helping me.

I have a 1920 x 1080 monitor. Currently, I have it set to 1600 x 800 in order for the majority of the bottom of the screen to show above my Task Bar. I just wish that I could play it in FULL screen mode.

Still, "something is FAR better than nothing," and I'm not going to complain too hard. Can't wait to sink my teeth deeply into this.

You guys are The Best! thumbs up
