||First you will need the latest Legion 2 + Update (r2275) (2016) + official Update(13-04-2016).7z:
After that you should extract L2_unofficial_update_20.03.2021.7z to the main JA2Legion2v38 dir and overwrite files.

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:
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.
"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... "
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
-- 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
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.
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:
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".
Name=Data-BigMaps + Music
Name=Data-NewQuests + Music
Name=Data-NewQuests + Data-BigMaps + Music
I'm wondering where is my original:
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
