I'm making an experience with Ja2. Now,only MERC/Locals. That means:

- Study hard,dumbass!!!!!!! :taskmaster:

In a more polite manner,a lot of training,practice,etc....

Then I discovered something interesting: Gasket is a good mech,although not all that good at jimmying doors.I realised that Maddog was opening more doors than him,even having lower MECH points and being in a lvl lower.

I compared all their status and deducted that Gasket's WIS was lower.So,I raised Gasket WIS by the mine/TNT trick and magically :magician: he opened some doors I left closed for testing purposes.....

What I conclude with this is that WIS plays an important role on locking picks.

So if anyone there could post the code part that gives an information about what determines success on lockpicking I would appreciate very much.

Yea,but Gasket wasn't opening any doors and after I raised his WIS,he could open all the doors he couldn't before.

Oh sry for posting.I made a better search and discovered this on the source code section:


http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Board=32&Number=101060&Searchpage=1&Main=8382&Words=lockpick&topic=0&Search=true#Post101060

In fact, Wisdom is a important stat to calculate the Lockpick chance.

Hope this info helps the newbies later on.

Thank you! I never thought wisdom could influence lockpicking. I'm going to buy my mercs according to this now.
After all these years... still love this game ;)

In sector N5, Meduna SAM Site the chests in the SAM control building are simply unopenable. Has anyone been successfull? Using gabbi-cheat I saw that there are some cool goodies in them but I don't want to cheat (well, at least not visible in history log - ALT+S - CTRL+GABBI - ALT+E - ALT+L - LOL)

I discovered a way to open almost any locked door, without tools nor lockpicking.

You need to kick the door for about 100 times.
[*] Keep spamming (to click over and over) the kick door option, until open
[*] Ignore the merc's remark that it won't work, and keep spamming the kick option.
[*] IMPORTANT: Make sure to position your mouse in a way that the "open door" tip and "hand icon" shows up without having to select ctrl button.
[*] TRICK/GAME BUG: The merc will eventually run out of stamina, and will colapse. BUT, as long as you keep spamming the kick option, the mouse icon will allow you to select "open door". If you keep spamming, THE MERC WILL GET UP AND WILL CONTINUE TO KICK THE DOOR!!!
[*] So long you keep spamming "kick" the mercy will remain up and kicking, even though the stamina is 0!!!
[*] After some time, not exactly 100 times but just about, you'll see a message saying: a person on the other side is trying to use the door" and the door will open!
[*] Open sesame...Abra cadabra!

This trick works on v1.12 and not only opens almost any door without the need to use canteens, it also increases your merc's strength stats!!! Pretty cool.

If it also works on v1.13 please let me know.
