I found early on in the game the to-hit ratio is pretty low with most low to mid level mercs, especially with basic guns, but things improve with more skilled mercs and better weaponry, especially those rifles that make use of multiple aiming clicks. I found mercs with the Machine-gunner trait invaluable too as most other mercs have poor results in auto fire, even those with the Auto Weapons trait. However this appears to be a 1.13 factor rather than a specific Vengeance characteristic.

Heyas people happy

So, i am trying to give the newest VA a try but i am running into obstacles.

1) Improved Aim Levels is off and so is the Dynamic Aiming Levels. Still, Grandee and Reaper that are full blown snipers, can't fill the ChanceToHit bar to 100% even at 60 meters, 30 or so tiles and miss half of the time. Forget about the others, such as Gus. The game feels like it's running on NCTH and it looks like it's been hardcoded, because no matter of what i am trying, nothing changes. Also, there is no CTH Constants in the VR Data folder. I was under the impression that VR supports OCTH only. Speaking of which, found a new option NEW_OCTH_CODE, tried with it off and on. No changes.

2) Scope, with her 100% condition CZ 700, is trying to fire it for the very first time and it jammed. Her mechanical is low but you'd expect a marksman to keep her sniper rifle in top condition at all times. Speaking of which, i did turn the LESS_JAMS option Off, yet it doesn't seem to work.

3) I've set the option to show the merc's name in different colors, according to how visible or hidden they are. It used to work in the 1.13 VR INI.Opttions in an older version but not in the VA Options, now,in this version, it doesn't work at all. It seems that a lot of the JA2 Options and on the INI.Editor don't seem to work at all. My other games, DL and AV work fine and i am very happy with them happy

4) Can anyone please remind me, how to make the visibility over tall grass better ? There is an option somewhere but i have forgotten where it is, i wrote down something about TREE EFFECTIVENESS but that is not it.

5)LOADSCREEN_STRETCH_MODE. How do i get rid of it ? It has also affected all of my other JA2 games that are on the same drive but in different folders, like a virus. I like the 1024 x 768 resolution. I did try as high as 1920x 1080, at which point i see no black vertical bars on the sides but everything is so small that i am straining my eyes in order to read the text.

I didn't change/rename the game exe because last time i tried it, i've had me that SLF problem that i've mentioned. Just installed the Vengeance_Reloaded_Better_New_Year_Beta_01.01.2021_v7609_English_Full, over a fresh JA2 Installation. No SLF problem though.

Any hints/advice is always welcomed and appreciated. It's an awesome mod and in some older version i got pretty far but lost it due to pc reset. I try to remain positive but i am losing my enthusiasm a bit, I REALLY wanted to play VR.

Short of time, but in regard to 2. if I understand the terminology correct you should have;

LESS_JAMS = TRUE in your Ja2_Options.ini (in the Data_Vengeance folder)

Personally by my experience this should be set to TRUE by default to be honest, as jams are very common earlier in the game with less well-maintained guns, though Scope must have really been unlucky in her first shot going by your experience.

I am having this little problem with my new installation of VR, the version i used before the pc setup and it was working great.

RUNTIME ERROR
PRESS<ESC> TO EXIT

File : Init.cpp
Init : 908
Function : LoadExternalGameplayData
MercProfiles.xml

File :Init.cpp
Line :1486
Function : InitializeJA2

Can anyone explain what is causing this and how to fix it ? Thank you in advance, all of my research came back fruitless.

Update : Found this : Editing Items.xml causes Runtime Error[message #350361] on my search. Someone is suggesting to "Or do an auto xml syntax check with notepad ++. ;)" and according to the original message author, it solved the problem. How can i run this auto xml syntax check on the Notepad++ ? I can't find such option on it. A little guidance please happy

Pretty much, I don't think there's any quests or local loyalty bonuses to be had there, though it might have some facilities you can use, mainly on the engineering/mechanical side.

If there is, it must be a secret coder addition that they didn't tell me about.

Driveable vehicles in combat was a feature in later versions of 1.13, so Vengeance missed out on that feature. We did look into possibly getting a solo boss-style tank in game, but that made it difficult, it was kind of an 'all tanks are mobile or none at all' kind of deal, so it was shelved.

Sorry when I say driveable, I mean that you can use them as transport on the strategic map. I did discover a bug related to the tank at the middle AA site: I loaded the tactical map for the first time after moving the tank I found there and another tank appeared which is now listed on my list of vehicles. I'm not sure if that map is supposed to be a tank factory.

Interesting, it might be something left over from the original Vengeance. We did fix an issue with enemy tanks respawning in friendly sectors, but not sure if this is related.

Hello everyone,

I have a question regarding the "New Vision Mode".
I spent quite some time searching through the forum, but I was only able to gather very little information on it. It seems like it attemps to make vision and spotting more realisitc.
I am curious to try it out. The ingame option tells me that it enables the "focus feature" and "selectable vision spot". It sounds like it requires a players action to have a merc "focus" on a specific area. However, I wasn't able to figure out how.

Could anyone help me gain more insight on this? That would be much appreciated. If you know where I can find more info, please link it. Thanks a lot!

@Hawkeye,

thank you for your qickly feedback!

Is this important?

I can also write: the whole equipment, again p. E. night vision google, pants, boonie hat and so on.
Trevor and Magic are mightless for the first time I play Ja2, precisely since 1999.
Perhaps an adjustment p. E. in Ja2-Options.ini, surprisely as to their properties?

I hope you know the solution.


Another user got no answer for exactly this question, but I must write, between a lot of questions.

@Hawkeye,

perhaps I found the solution myself:

Changing Ja2-Options.ini:

; Activates the new additional repair mode.
; While the old JA 1.13 repair system goes from soldier to soldier, this algorithm goes through item types, priorizing
; equipped weapons/armor and highly damaged items. It starts with equipped weapons and armor, then goes to weapons/armor
; held in inventory and finally ends with items in backpacks. Thus, soldiers first repair all equipped weapons of mercs in the
; same sector, then all equipped armor, and so forth, always starting with the item with least durability
; (especially jammed guns).
;
; FALSE = 1.13 repair system
; TRUE = New additional repair system based on priorities
;*********************************************************************************************************************** *******

ADDITIONAL_REPAIR_MODE = FALSE (!!!)

But, sorry, I have another heavy problem:

I'm not able to recruit mercs (A.I.M or MERC) for now (3. day in ARULCO):

RUNTIME ERROR!

A had this problem already in a former version of Vengeance without a solution by occuring; but in the next version it was disappeared.

Hello.
Please, I have a question. I just attack sector I10 Death Camp (close to Salinas) and immediately after first enter there are three people (I guess prisoners and they are shown on map green like militia and my mercs can talk to them like to militia) killed against the wall. They don't have white question marks or white names above them. So, looks like they are just regular guys. I have an idea how to maybe save them, but will be difficult. Is it actually worth it to save them? Will letting them to be killed effect anything? Like maybe loyalty in Salinas or later quests will be not available or anything or is this just for showing horribleness of the Death Camp?

Doing 'the right thing' is a personal choice, such as saving those about to be shot by the firing squad. This sequence is not linked to any quests though and more of a atmosphere piece.

Hey Fan, a fix has been made and a new exe is available here

Also check your installation, our coders said you were using an old build. Ensure you have the latest one, some of our links were out of date. You should see 'The Great Reset' moniker on the build number at the Hawkworld logo, and there is a new Vengeance logo on the menu screen.

Thanks for the heads up.

Hello.
Please, I have a question. I'm now trying in Alma little bit of fortification and item "Concertina Stack" is used after one use. Is it intentional? I thought one stack will give me few tiles of fortification or I'm doing something wrong? Do I need some tools for it? Sector is G14. Thank you.

I'm not entirely sure to be honest. I thought JA2 v7609 and therefore Vengeance: Reloaded only used an older version of the fortifications feature, which means just sandbags. I've never even tried a concertina wire. You might want to do a search or read up on whoever created the feature.

Heyho everyone. First of all I love playing this mod. Hardcore but fun as hell.

Especially with the taunts and new voice lines. I cant play other mods because of it anymore.

Now I have a problem. I already played this mod couple of times and I started a new campaign but this time I cheated a bit and give me lots of money and cranked the bobby ray settings to full.

My problem is this:
Even though bobby ray setting is full It dont have some of the basic weapons like Svd, Ak74 etc. Also quantites of some items are low too. Like grenades.

Is this intentional to hide some weapons so we can find in game? Or is this a bug?

As I said I already played the mod before and this time I want to play with an elite team and elite equipment.

There are many items in the Br dont get me wrong. What I dont understand is it also missing many weapons which I found ingame before.

Thx for this great mod and thx for the great community here!

Well you can select bobby ray settings when starting a new game.

Money is easy too. Just edit the data_vengeance\ja2options.ini file.

Search novice in the file and you'll sen starting Cash for all difficulties.

I'm playing experienced for exanple so I edit it to 5mil cheeky

So when you start the game with experiemced difficulty for example you'll have 5mil.

Dont use ini editor if you want to give yourself more than 1mil btw. Notepad is the best cheeky

Glad you are having fun, Guylussac.

Not all items are available at Bobby Rays and originally in an early beta of Vengeance: Reloaded weapons were very limited. This changed with subsquent builds but still some items may have been omitted, only recently I discovered 40mm grenade cylinders weren't available, but again this has now been changed. Make sure you have the latest installation.

In my current playthrough neither the AK-74 or SVD was available, though they are defined as being obtainable in the USED section in the items.xml. There is an SVDS though.

Quantity of guns available is also set in the items.xml, so if you want more you may wish to edit this file, it can be found in the Data-AIMv53\TableData\Items folder.

Thx a lot man!

Editing that xml file do the trick.

I realised lots of weapon is missing in BR.

I know that's for gameplay but as I said I'm playing Just for fun this time.

For example As-Val, Vintorez and their ammo's are also missing.

I cant found them anywhere so far but regular Svd is easy to optain.
