Hi Hawkeye, Great mod! Question for you if you could help me out. I'm trying to make some update to the "XML Editor" but these updates aren't carrying through to the game 'JA2_Vengeance." Any tip?

I'm hoping I'm not saving the update correctly. For example I had difficulties getting my updates to the "INI Editor" carry to the game, but discovered that I needed to change the default drop down "Select INI-File:" from "Data-1.13\Ja2_Options.INI" to "Data-Vengeance\Ja2_Options.INI"

Any help you or anyone can provide would be great.

Hey Sub, unfortunately the XML editor is broken, and has been for some years, it shouldn't be used for Vengeance, or any other mod for that matter. The dev team actually faced huge issues with this program after it corrupted a lot our data during development. If you want to make any xml changes, you'll have to do it the old fashioned way with a text editor such as Notepad +.

I'm not too familiar with the ini editor I'm afraid, and suspect that's a bit out of date too. Again best to just edit your changes in a text file, perhaps not the easiest or prettiest way of doing it, but arguably the most efficient.

Hawkeye, thank you so much. There's just one more fix I can't figure out:

-Changing the screen resolution from default (1024x768) to 1280x600. I only know how to update this via the "INI Editor" (looking to avoid using as it could cause added problems). Thoughts on were else I can more safely update?

You can change the game's resolution by editing the Ja2.ini file with a text editor, it's near the end of the file. This file sits in your parent folder (not the Data-Vengeance folder.)

I have the game going, but encountered some freezing issues. Two examples are during player turn, Merc fires last round and then game freezes (clock circle running). Another is during Civilian Turn, game freezes.

Only way I've gotten around some of these freezes is by changing things during the turn. Any tips with dealing with the freezes?

Press the Esc key a few times which will break the AI deadlock hopefully.

In future post any questions like this in the hints and tips section, or bugzilla if you think it's a bug. I like to keep this download page fairly clear if I can, thanks.
