Where can I turn on NCTH system?[message #362230] Mon, 11 January 2021 03:18 Go to next message

Hello everybody, I am new here.

I have discovered this incredible game (Ja2) only two weeks ago and probably have about a thousand questions. But I will not bother you with them. Just one problem that I simply cannot find a solution for:

I started my first run of Ja2 with v.1.13 7435. You have to start the game through the INI Editor there. you get to a screen with many options for the game (difficulty, CTH/NCTH, Food system and many more).
I played with NCTH. After finishing the game; I started to read a lot about new improvements and modifications made by the people here. So I thought I will try to play the "latest" version.
After lots of trial and error (I am older,very bad with computers in general and my english is also rather basic), I finally managed to download a SCI with the version JA2_r8917 from December 2020.
I put it in the correct folder, managed the Windows fix and after turning off the intro movie through the INI Editor I was actually able to play (was the same in my old version - I get sound but no picture if the video is enabled).
At my first encounter with an enemy, I saw a very basic greenish targeting cursor with a bar. I think this must be the old chance to hit system (I also compared it to my old version with OCTH enabled).
But in the startscreen of this latest version, I dont get a toggle for OCTH/NCTH.

So I tried to go through all the options of the INI Editor and also through the INI files manually to see how to turn on NCTH. I simply cannot find it.
Does this mean that newer versions of the game (after 7609) are not playable with NCTH, or am I simply too stupid to find it? Probably the latter...

I would really appreciate your help.
Oh... and thank you very much for improving this game so much.

In Data-1.13\JA2_Options.ini search for "NCTH =". It's probably set to "FALSE". Change it to "TRUE" and you have enabled NCTH mode. You don't have to start a new game for this change.
