First you will need the latest Legion 2 + Update (r2275) (2016) + official Update(13-04-2016).7z:
https://mega.nz/folder/w9YhiaBR#VvW35VdAHsvIJcPNuwZ9Vg/folder/Q4I1iS6Q

After that you should extract L2_unofficial_update_20.03.2021.7z to the main JA2Legion2v38 dir and overwrite files.
Download: https://chomikuj.pl/luk3Z/Games/Jagged+Alliance+2/JA2+Legion+2/L2_unofficial_update_04.04.2021,7634094889.7z%28archive%2 9 (you need to solve captcha)

What this unofficial update include ?

1. Added missing semicolons in 3 files.

2. Added missing file 120.BAD (copied & renamed 0.BAD)

3. Restored original AIM's & MERC'S mercenary stats (at last) !

4. Changed starting money to 50k (although it may won't be enough for someone) & additional random money from 5k to 20k.

5. Added activated recon (big red "?") on the map in L2 1.13 (like in L2 vanilla, NO_ENEMY_DETECTION_WITHOUT_RECON = FALSE)

6. Removed 2 seconds delay on showing hints during the game loading in L2 1.13 (like in L2 vanilla, USE_LOADSCREENHINTS = FALSE)

7. ELITE enemy soldiers cheating disabled (at last) // Ja2_Options.INI : [Tactical Difficulty Settings]

8. added AMBIENT\232.bad

9. added Readme ENG file (translated Czytaj_to.txt) to JA2Legion2v38\dokumenty\addons\

According to the plot:
Quote:

"Terrorist called Karlos kidnaps daughter of millionaire Oswald (who lives in Torawia) and demands a huge ransom for her. He gives Oswald 30 days to pay the demand, otherwise he will kill his child. The millionaire, knowing that he wouldn't get the money in time, contacts with an old acquaintance - Murray Ebstern. Friend, a former employee of A.I.M., recommends Oswald to turn to this organisation.

Because of some financial trouble, Oswald hires only the cheapest mercs and sends them to Osarwia, where Karlos escaped with the kidnapped daughter of millionaire. The squad starts a search, yet having no idea that they're going straight into a bigger deal, than they may think... "
From the plot we're finding out that looks like he don't care about his daughter if he would like to hire only the cheapest mercs.
This mod is challenging, so to make it more serious (cheapest mercs vs enemy elites is not serious imho) and to avoid a lot of saves-loads I've changed starting money to at last 50k for every difficulty level and changed additional random money from 5k to 20k.

Below was presented original -- Random money & -- Starting money lua script (line 1196 from the file JA2Legion2v38\Data-Legion2\Data-Files\scripts\GameInit.lua).

		-- Losuj dodatkowe fundusze. Zależy od wybrania stopnia trudności gry.
		i = math.random(1, 4)
		if (i == 1) then
			KASA = 2*1500
		elseif (i == 2) then
			KASA = 2*2000
		elseif (i == 3) then
			KASA = 2*2500
		elseif (i == 4) then
			KASA = 2*3000
		end
		
	-- Ustaw ilość funduszy. Zależy od wybrania stopnia trudności gry.
	if ( newDIFFICULTY_LEVEL == DIF_LEVEL_EASY ) then
		iStartingCash = 45000 + KASA
	elseif ( newDIFFICULTY_LEVEL == DIF_LEVEL_MEDIUM ) then
		iStartingCash = 35000 + KASA
	elseif ( newDIFFICULTY_LEVEL == DIF_LEVEL_HARD ) then	
		iStartingCash = 25000 + KASA
	elseif ( newDIFFICULTY_LEVEL == DIF_LEVEL_INSANE ) then
		iStartingCash = 15000 + KASA
	end

BTW if someone want to play with new Music then you can find it in JA2Legion2v38\dokumenty\addons.
Czytaj_to.txt is a readme file.

Installation

1. Place the selected plug-in and the ini installation file in the "Data-Legion2 \ Addons \" directory
2. Run "Starter Legion 2.exe" and select "Tools" then "Install add-on".
After that if you want to play with Data-BigMaps + Music or Data-NewQuests + Music you should add "CONFIG_MOD2=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-Music" under [AddonX] and add to the name " + Music". This is my Starter Legion 2 Addons.ini:

[Addon1]
Name=Data-BigMaps + Music
CONFIG_MOD1=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-BigMaps
CONFIG_MOD2=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-Music
PROFIL_MOD=Profiles\UserProfile_Legion2_BigMaps

[Addon2]
Name=Data-NewQuests + Music
CONFIG_MOD1=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-NewQuests\NewQuests
CONFIG_MOD2=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-Music
PROFIL_MOD=Profiles\UserProfile_Legion2_NewQuests
DIR=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-NewQuests

[Addon3]
Name=Data-NewQuests + Data-BigMaps + Music
CONFIG_MOD1=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-BigMaps
CONFIG_MOD2=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-NewQuests\NewQuests
CONFIG_MOD3=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-Music
DIR=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-NewQuests
DEFAULT_EXE=
DEFAULT_EXE_EDITOR=
PROFIL_MOD=Profiles\UserProfile_Legion2_NewQuests_BigMaps

[Addon4]
Name=Music
CONFIG_MOD1=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-Music
PROFIL_MOD=
DIR=Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-Music

I'm wondering where is my original:

[Addon0]
Name=None
CONFIG_MOD1=None
PROFIL_MOD=Profiles

Anyway Starter Legion 2.exe showing it in "Mods selection" somehow.

Metariva Mod Main Theme: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NBe9HXA8uZ-poha4A5McuopIixQ2dGvl/view?usp=sharing
I really like it, so I replace default one in: JA2Legion2v38\Data-Legion2\Addons\Data-Music\Music

Nice work Luk3Z but do you know if Jazz is still active in the modding scene? It would be good to get a better working version of Legion 2 available with Jazz' permission and latest English downloads here updated at the pit if further updates are made.
