If you find what causes the crash, let me know. Thanks.
I jumped to conclusions too soon! Root of distress are not sectors but new RPCs. In Drassen it's Doreen, in Chitzena it's terrorists. Crashes happen always after they say something glitchy!
Darn Heck!!! I was terribly wrong! I could still not believe it a while after I found out it but I made crappy portraits! This nice You gave me a black eye surprise was I gifted by my new STI-Editor (by Tox). It has such idiotic color picker! Not only it's extremely unhandy but also generates somehow corrupted colors which result to crashes in game!
I am very sorry for bothering!Not me

I have to correct my report. It only happens when wandering through occupied Drassen (by sector borders ''retreat") and in all 3 sectors! I did it with my imp spy...

I can hire Madame & Billy e.g. after pasting The Update without starting new game. But I want Druggist and cannot hire him!
Has someone hired him by chance? What requirements need to be? Help making him hirable in my current playthrough heartily appreciated!

It happens. Sometimes it is difficult to discern the reason for a crash - but improper portraits is a definite game crasher!

I emailed the author (Scorpion) of the rpc addon, and will let you know what he says about The Druggist.

Recently I've been changing the game's Item.xml files, such as the item description of the Blackhawk Patrol Pack, the ALICE Pack, the M-1945 Pack, the Alice Harnesses, the LRRP pack, and the M-1956 Harness. I've also added some pouches to the Alice harness/pack, the M-1956 harness and M-1945 pack in the LBE.xml files. At first when I only modified the Blackhawk/Alice packs the game started off with out a problem, and the changes were applied. But when I went initiated the game, it crashed on the SirTech screen and showed this message:

=======================================
*** Sat Nov 09 15:01:26 2019 ***
[ FPV0M-J63IG-S7H3P-0KXGM-ZIF2Q ]

Line : 1480
Location : InitializeJA2

File : Init.cpp

=======================================

It should be noted that I could not find the Blackhawk Patrol Pack in the LoadBearingEquipment.xml if that is any help. I only changed the descriptions of these items and added two more ammo to the aforementioned harnesses. I've only touched the Items.xml and LBE.xml files. Also note, that when I open the Item.xml file in Office Xml Handler, it only displays mixed codes with the item descriptions and random numbers.


=======================================
1280000000000000000000000000000 Glock 18 ....

So I'm thinking maybe I accidentally deleted some of the code?

Well, it works with a new game if you try to hire him right after he speaks his first line. It could be something connected with events happening with the other Terrorists or T.Rex's militia . . . or I don't know.

Looks like you messed something up at line 291 in Items.xml - that's the Glock 18.


The Blackhawk Patrol Pack can be found in LoadBearingEquipment.xml by referencing the <ubClassIndex> tag in Items.xml for the Blackhawk Patrol pack (the value of which is 24). <lbeIndex>24</lbeIndex> in LoadBearingEquipment.xml is the Blackhawk patrol Pack. <ubClassIndex> = <lbeIndex> in this instance.

I'm totally out of shape, but this mod is intriguing enough so I played it for couple of days.

Encountered all the "explosive" bugs like the rest, can't really figure out from the posts has the error been found?

Got a lot of errors in my play, I think it is related to the terrorist hiring (4 from Chitzena, without Slay, got no disc) so I try to keep them out of fight as much as possible. Unfortunately didn't make screenshots, but will try to do so. Did a mistake of taking Ice cream truck without Hamous, so it reads as "None", and it is practically useless since it moves like mud and not like a vehicle. Can't find Hamous, but I didn't look all that much. Probably will have to use GABBI to figure out where is he or something and if the truck can be restored back to Ice Cream instead of None.

One thing I do wonder, and I can't seem to find any topic in search bar with answer is - Is it possible to hire Mike?
I remember a topic years ago it was talked about a fix to get him, but not sure is the stuff in the 1.13 or what? This mod with this last update about hiring "everyone" is crazy, but for some reason I want Mike and not those "nonames" big grin

Anyway, just wanted to thank the man in charge (edmortimer) for doing a good job thumbs up , getting me back in some turn action, it's been a long time since I played a mod besides Urban Chaos.

Look near the end of page one on Bug Reports. It's called Bombfix. Should be a link to mediafire.

I have read about .npc files. I know now that when I spoke with Carmen and took the terrorists quest all info about Druggist was read & saved in savefiles.
But I didn't give up yet. I think I still can get him. All I need is to create "npc reaction" script #300 or #400 that removes npc 112 & all his data and spawns new fresh npc 112 at sector B2.
Then I could just set this script in the tool "NPC scripter RU"!
https://my-files.ru/9aitxi
I have no knowledge about creating "npc reaction" scripts. But I guess it must be easy for one experienced coder. Would someone be kind to tell the code & the file this code must be pasted in?



I have my next portion of feedback, all that: bugz, errorz, suggestionz...

I have not found the Devin crash bug. It will be the first thing to do when I start modding AV again. It was the straw that broke the camel's back - the stupid, little bug that's probably some typo in the wrong place or something like that which I couldn't find after weeks of searching.

Alt Loadscreens don't show up! Is it made on purpose or should count as bug?
It would be nice to have the top level heightened for "ADDITIONAL_DELAY_UNTIL_LOADSCREEN_DISPOSAL" (Ja2_Options.INI) too. Up to 1 min maybe. Now it is 10 sec. I mean possibility to adjust of course, not default value!

Try looking in the nas-info.txt file for info on attachments, then go to items.xml, find the weapon of your choice and paste in the attachments you want. You might want to look up the size of the glock 18 and 25 and try to scale the 25 to the size of the 18 in items.xml.

That will only work for some attachments because:

1.) the NAS system is only partially implemented in AV
2.) some attachment values have been changed to different attachments because AV and the NAS mod have a different set of attachments (they have some I don't have, and I have some they don't have, so I switched out their non-existant ones (in AV) for ones I have).

Basically, if you want to add attachments use the old way. It still works. However, the Beretta 84 in 1999 is not factory equipped to handle a silencer or any optics. You will find that the .380 & .32 calibre weapons will not have many, if any, attachments set for them in AV to reflect two things: the 1990's era, and because they really were only included for the civilians and the non-mercenary MERC mercs to use - and also if the SHTF and you have nothing else.


Using the NAS system you can add a laser sight and underbarrel flashlight by adding this code to the Beretta 84:

<nasLayoutClass>1</nasLayoutClass>
<AvailableAttachmentPoint>4</AvailableAttachmentPoint>
<AvailableAttachmentPoint>67108864</AvailableAttachmentPoint>

For the Glock 25 - change the <Size> tag to 2

Add <BR_NewInventory>x</BR_NewInventory> to the item, where "x" is the optimum number to have in stock.

Yes. Militia must be in an adjoining sector. I forget if the militia have to be in a town sector or not. Whatever the parameters are for Sevenfm's executable - that is what is necessary to call in artillery.

Well, I haven't tried to call in artillery on enemy units yet, but I've tried to call in artillery via militia and merc squads from other sectors before. I've called arty outside of turn-based mode from them and I have not experienced any crashes. Funny thing is that I played later and found that when the enemy called artillery on me that there were no crashes. I'm sorry, but this is all that I have to say about it. I have been modding the item descriptions and adding new "uncool" items such as the m-1945 combat pack to BR's and editing the sprites of items if that's worth anything.

You can order merc arty strikes long as a merc squad is in an adjoining sector with a loaded mortar tube and the merc's lbe is loaded down with shells. You can add to the volume of shells by having mercs in the squad (of the mortar gunner) all carrying mortar shells.

After your mercs fired off all their shells at your designated grid, you can have the mortar squad reload by going into the strategic map and loading the shells into the mortar tube and into your mercs' lbes. You can load how ever many shells you want to be fired off this way. When finished, go back into the sector you're being engaged in, and press end turn, and just wait for the magic to happen.

Keep in mind that the procedure for merc arty and militia arty are different. With militia arty you can hover your mouse over the area you want bombarded and then ALT+Rightclick, scroll to Artillery, select the sector you want to call from, and then select Militia or Merc Arty.

At this point if you select Militia arty, then the fire mission will come down as close as where your mouse was (indicated by the green square).

If you selected Merc arty, then it doesn't matter where your mouse was, the shells will come down on the position of the radioman who called it in. Apparently as a form of "heroic sacrifice before he is overrun by enemies."

If you want to use Merc arty, then you have to send drop a Signal Grenade (color coded as red) (Rifle grenade, 40mm, 23mm, flare pistol, etc) on where you want the shells to land. Then it's the same procedure. Alt+Rightclick, then select Merc arty, wait your turn, and watch the fire works.

BTW unlike 1.13 the enemy will scatter if they see your firing your red signal grenades at them, then they will scatter if they have the chance, if you really want to be effective, then I suggest suppressing them by heavy autofire before you call in the mission. If all goes well, they should be suppressed enough by the first volley of shelling to not run away from the second volley.

Hope this helps, and remember to slot lots of floppies!
