At exactly 140 days, 20 hours and 56 minutes into my 1.10 JA2 Gold game, it crashes. Any idea of a fix for this? I remembered it happened once a while ago when I used to play and just moving around differently solved it but it doesn't in this case. I am an old bears pit poster coming back asking for help; if anyone has any info let me know. Thanks in advance.

I think the fix for the 1.10 game was the 1.12 patch Wink

Though 1.13 takes things a whole heap further Very Happy

When closing in on the time it crashes, go into tactical view and wait until you are past that minute. That should enable you to go on with your game.

Thanks for the tips guys, I will do both of these.

Question though, if I install a patch will my savegames update? My imp in this current game is amazing and i've spent a lot of time on him (100 wisdom and whatnot). Thanks.

If it's running ok then don't bother. I don't think 1.12 broke 1.10 savegames.

Best thing to do is do a complete copy of your original install folder and then run the updated. That way you don't lose any savegames or corrupt anything. If it fails you just run the exe from the copied folder and all is well Smile

You can do this unlimited times to have as many JA2 folders as with mods Very Happy

Yeah I have a backup of my save games. Thanks for the tips and cougar's fix which I tried first worked so I haven't bothered updating.

I've never used mods and if I want to use my same IMP in certain mods is that possible? Thanks.

1.13 would be impossible now as the IMP.dat informations has changed. Same with the Savegame info, but having said that the gameplay has for the main part improved greatly. It's obviously up to you, but I would definitely recommend giving it a go Wink

Ok well heres another question since you guys are answering them so swiftly; is it possible to have three to four versions of JA2 installed so I can still have my reg ja2, wildfire, 1.13, other mods etc. Would this require some registry editing? Thanks.

The game actually runs standalone and has no dependencies on any registry settings (unless you want to run the uninstaller which is pointless!). You can copy the main folder as many times as you like and they are all considered standalone. There is no reg check when game starts either.

I currently run about 11 installs. Not one of them is the same Very Happy
