Okay, I'll go for the BAR for the moment. I'll make it a 30-06 Springfield gun with 5 shot capacity (I think in reality it has 4 shots, but adding yet another item for one shot less seems a bit awkward and unnecessary...).

Review of the BAR


My try to convert the pic into sti form (think it looks acceptable...):

And finally I'm still tinkering with the starting gear. I tried giving Trevor that AUG CQB, but that added up to a whopping 15k $ starting gear cost, which seemed a little bit too excessive. I think I give him the AUG-A1... don't know yet.

I also tried Shadow with a SEAL Recon Rifle (with AR suppressor and ACOG scope), same here, equipment cost is way too high for my taste (around 16k $). Anyways, I'm on it...


well, in that case, simply make those guns uniques and lower their price accordingly, so they

Hey smeagol, not sure if I should limit this to only the WF item mod, but have you considered changing the weight of the armour kits? I brought this up back in the old item mod thread when I mentioned dragon skin, but I've noticed that the JA armour tends to be a lot lighter than real world armoured vests. However, in my fiddling around with the weights to reflect stated weights (with and without plates,) I have found that the burden of vests a little too extreme for gameplay. What are your thoughts on adjusting armour weights?

Hmm... honestly I haven't spent too much thought on armor weight yet. At the moment, I think the vests have appropriate weights in game play terms.


Finished adding the BAR hunting rifle, and I must say, that I'm quite satisfied with the result. Smile Also added a biggame hunter vest (basically just a recoloured hunter vest, that exchanges the shotgun shell pockets for small rifle mag pockets, to fit in those .30-06 rounds...).

I think I'm almost finished for making the update package... I'll have a lost run through the merc starting gear and will see, if there's more to fix.

Solved the problem by cutting prices and//or adding default attachments (in the case of the SEAL Recon rifle, I added the ACOG as default, this basically cuts down the price by somthing like 2k $. And as the only way getting the SEAL ingame is due to a conversion kit, I think that's okay...). And as for the AUG-A1 I gave Trevor, that also seems fair, as the amount of attachments to that gun is very limited (and he will have much fewer magazines than front-line mercs).


well, that sounds resonable. but could you explain to me, why the CQB AUG is more expensive than the regular AUG?

Hmm... I think this is set in the cities.xml, there should be a tag concerning train militia or something. Unfortunately I hadn't had a chance to test HAM 3.5 (mainly because I'm too stupid to get it installed with WF maps and item Mod, I guess...).


installation is quite easy, allthough not entirely unproblematic.

take your JA2 vanilla -> latest SVN release -> WF6.06 mod -> Alpha item mod, then copy over the HAM 3.5 exe and the XMLs that come with it in the tabledata folder.

change the 1.13 basic directory name to the one of the Wildfire Data in the VFS 1.13.ini and you should be good to go.

works good so far, except for the militia training, which seems impossible no matter where.
i definitely meet all the training requirements, but cannot start the training at all.

this should definitely be a HAM problem, supposedly with the XMLs. i

Just uploaded Alpha V29.


Changes included:
- removed all unnecessary items from OIV that were still in the mod (this includes the grenade panel, a.l.i.c.e pack, first aid response kit, 40mm grenade panel, old ghillie suit, medic and mechanic vest upgrades)
- added some new stuff (LBE items that use some of the medic vest pics, pants, a polo shirt, a new fur hat for Ivan, the BAR hunting rifle)
- completely updated Merc Starting gear for all A.I.M. mercs (the MERC mercs have to wait a bit for an update... but as most of their stuff is pretty unimpressive anyways, I might skip that altogether...)
- added a new pocket type (grenade large single), this helps to balance LBE items a bit. Not sure if it's already enough, have a look for yourself and tell me what you think.



You may find some of the loadouts a bit excessive on the ammo side (for example, Henning has each pocket of his Russian 107 vest filled with mags, that's right... that'll be 12 mags!), but this is intended.
The A.I.M frontline mercs are professionals who know what they are doing. And that is first and foremost: bring ammo with you, and lots of it...
It's also noteworthy, that I intended this starting gear for insane play with drop-all disabled and BR on a low setting (due to the options .ini starting cash on insane should be high enough to hire more than one merc, I set it at 150k and find this makes for a fair game start... the difficulty on insane shouldn't come from limited starting ressources, but from increased enemy activity in my opinion). In order not to run out of stuff, you should get enough from the starting mercs you chose. Another important factor for this decision was, that Imp mercs got a bit scaled down through these changes. They still have the same loadout (well, except for those Jeans i added...). If you want to have professionals on your team, get them from A.I.M. and not those punny Lvl 1 Imps.

I like the Imps, don't get me wrong... I always play with a full set of 6 and they do most of the work, but it's not fair, that you get a well equipped team for just 18k, that's why the Imps didn't get any additional ammo... The KAC you get for Marksmanship 90 only has a very limited amount of ammunition, so be sure not to waste too much of it early on, that 6x35 is hard to get in Arulco Wink.



Okay, that's it for now, happy hunting. :happybear:

Uhm... like Javelin Anti-Tank weapon, or old-school hand-to-hand Javelin?

I guess there would be animations needed for melee//thrown attacks (like some fighting animations for trench maces would be nice ^^).



I just started a new game with the new settings, so far I've taken Omerta and Barinas and it's quite some fun.

Play with my 6 imps, 2 A.I.M. Mercs with 2 week contracts (Grizzly and Fox), 6 A.I.M. mercs just for their gear (Monk, Magic, Lynx, Sidney, Thor and Fidel) and the 4 rebels (due to the early rebels patch, had a very old version of that one, thus I could grab Miguel and Carlos right away... if only I knew a bit about NPC scipting... *grmbl* I'd like to have Ira and Dimi from the start, Carlos after 1 town and Miguel after 2, that way it wouldn't be too overpowered, but still reasonably early to get them into your team. With the original settings they are next to useless, but as stated somewhere above in this thread I'm still not able to do the scripting... ah well, one of the next tasks I have to master...).



The BAR hunting rifle is really kick-ass. Quite some fun for my imp sniper. Smile

Resistance in Barinas was quite lame, just 14 enemies on insane, not a real problem for my imp squad. Even had the chance to rob 2 enemies with my martial arts guy (got a Garand and some other random stuff). Now heading for San Mona, to sell off the excess weapons and grab my second car. Afterwards it's up to Drassen with two teams and get hold of the airport...
Stay tuned for more updates on my progress and further additions to the mod.


happy hunting :happybear:

i am now testing your V29 with HAM 3.5 and so far i got it running more or less good.

only thing is, that i cannot train militia in your new town sectors, because HAM uses different XMLs. you think you probably could look into that sometime and make those work together?

other than that, great job so far on the equipment and starting gear. the maps also seem more useful and balanced, especially the weapon caches now seem far more toned down in what you can loot there, allthough it

You've just re-downloaded the HAM zip, so I'd recommend you try out the HAM Default XMLs (in the appropriate zip inside the zip). There's no reason why they should not work with WildFire.

By the way, if anyone wants to work with me on this (JP?) I want to make some "official" Wildfire+HAM XMLs, that allow classic HAM Dynamic Roaming and hopefully also get a good setup of "Default" and "HAM-style" facilities that could be added to HAM or Wildfire compatibility.

Since I haven't played WildFire, I would need to get a little familiar with the map, like what's what and where it is...

Great, I understand it a little bit now (not fully though, I still need an answer to the above question).

Here's the VFS configs I'm using now.

Wildfire VFS

Extract to your main JA2 folder.

All you need to do to switch between Wildfire and 1.13 is to edit JA2.ini and change this:

; JA2 1.13
;VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2113.ini

; JA2 Vanilla
; VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2Vanilla.ini

; JA2 1.13 Wildfire 6.06
VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2113-WF.ini


into this:

; JA2 1.13
VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2113.ini

; JA2 Vanilla
; VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2Vanilla.ini

; JA2 1.13 Wildfire 6.06
;VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2113-WF.ini


Also sorry, I uploaded it with windowed 1024x768 selected Wink

correct, you have to put them into the wildfire data folder and then tell VFS to read from that instead from standard Data-1.13.

at least that

@ Mauser: I've just tested HAM+WF with the "HAM Default" XMLs, and they seem to work fine for me. I've got an A.C.A in Drassen B13 (although heh there isn't one on the actual map Wink ) and can train easily... I can only conclude that you had installed the XMLs badly when first trying this out.

Well that's the thing - it's not as simple as that. One of the reasons my XMLs were being read from the Data-1.13 rather than Data-WF is that I used the vfs file to create a redundancy order. I basically TOLD it to read WF first, then look at 1.13 for anything that's missing. Or at least I think I did.

One thing I realized though - you still have to set the correct folder name in the vfs config file.

Quote:

The colon tells the program "don't read this line". So in the first example, the program reads the last line only, ignoring everything else. In the second example, it only reads the first line. Getting the hint? Wink

OK guys, let's make a couple of configuration files.

There are two possibilities, one large monolithic file that contains everything or a couple of files, one for every mod.

I will describe the second approach. I will define a file for the basic game (vfs_ja2.ini), a file for the 1.13 mod (vfs_113.ini), a file for the HAM mod (vfs_HAM.ini), a file for the Wildfire Mod (vfs_WF.ini) and the obligatory user profile ini (vfs_user.ini).

To do this you will have to have this entry in your ja2.ini
[Ja2 Settings]
...
; JA2 1.13
; VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2113.ini

; ja2 + 1.13 + HAM + WF
VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_ja2.ini, vfs_113.ini, vfs_HAM.ini, vfs_WF.ini, vfs_user.ini

; ja2 + 1.13 + HAM
;VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_ja2.ini, vfs_113.ini, vfs_HAM.ini, vfs_user.ini

; ja2 + 1.13
;VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_ja2.ini, vfs_113.ini, vfs_user.ini

; ja2
;VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_ja2.ini, vfs_user.ini

...


The file vfs_ja2.ini is basically a copy of vfs_config.JA2Vanilla.ini with some parts removed. It will be the largest file.
It loads the slf libraries and initializes the "Data" directory

; filename = vfs_ja2.ini

The file vfs_113.ini adds the "Data-1.13" directory to the VFS.
; filename = vfs_113.ini
[vfs_config]
PROFILES = v113

[PROFILE_v113]
NAME = v1.13
LOCATIONS = datav113_dir
PROFILE_ROOT =

For the HAM and WF mods i assume that theis data directories will be located in a "Mods" directory. If this is not the place where you these mods are on you system, then you will have to adapt the paths.
; filename = vfs_HAM.ini
[vfs_config]
PROFILES = HAM

[PROFILE_HAM]
NAME = HAM 3.5
LOCATIONS = dataHAM
PROFILE_ROOT = 

#############################################################
##                       DATA PATHs                        ##
#############################################################
[LOC_dataHAM]
TYPE = DIRECTORY
PATH = Mods/HAM-3.5
MOUNT_POINT = 

; filename = vfs_WF.ini
[vfs_config]
PROFILES = WF

[PROFILE_WF]
NAME = Wildfire 6
LOCATIONS = dataWF6
PROFILE_ROOT = 

#############################################################
##                       DATA PATHs                        ##
#############################################################
[LOC_dataWF6]
TYPE = DIRECTORY
PATH = Mods/Wildfire-6
MOUNT_POINT = 


You will also need a user profile ini, because here you will specify where all temporary files, savegames and logs will be saved. If this file doesn't exist, the game won't start. Or better, if the things that are defined in vfs_user.ini are not defined anywhere else, then the game won't start.
; vfs_user.ini
[vfs_config]
PROFILES = UserProfile

[PROFILE_UserProfile]
NAME = Player Profile
LOCATIONS = uprof_root

; if PROFILE_ROOT is empty, PATH in the according Location section has to be specified
; specifiled directory *must* exist
PROFILE_ROOT = 

; WRITE has to be 'true' for the user profile, or you won't be able to save temporary files (= game doesn't start)
WRITE = true

#############################################################
##                       DATA PATHs                        ##
#############################################################
[LOC_uprof_root]
TYPE = DIRECTORY

; if PATH is empty, PROFILE_ROOT in the according Profile section has to be specified
; specifiled directory *must* exist
PATH = Profiles\UserProfile_JA2113

MOUNT_POINT = 


This configuration files should be complete (besides ja2.ini). Just copy the contents of the code blocks into the according files, adjust the data path (if needed) and start the game. Be warned, i haven't tested exactly this configuration, so there may be some typos.

Cause my eyes are crossing just looking at that lot , never mind thinking about doing it , plus it's Saturday and ma wee brain goes into hibernation for a coupla days :smallman:

Just went south along the road from San Mona to Estoni (and after fighting my way through a whooping 43 enemies at G5!), I discovered that the roadblock on G6 had no items (which was not intended), must have somehow made a bad save in the map editor on that one. I have already fixed it, this will be included in the complete map package I want to upload, once I've updated all maps... until then, that map won't have items (sorry...).

I'll continue now updating the maps... I'll leave Alma HQ for a while, I just can't get a grip on that map in the moment somehow...

Last chance for those who like modular speedloader pouches to remain in the mod to speak up. Tomorrow these will be gone otherwise... (no one seems to use them, I'd rather add a non-modular speedloader pocket. And in the long run I'll make modular pockets for large grenades instead...)

I'll probably also add different SMG mag pouches, only having the SAS ones is kind of strange (as these won't fit flavourwise for Arulcan army // certain mercs...).

ok..decided to give WF a try..and applied the add-on bits...its pretty cool...although the maps are annoyingly busy and crowded(item/building etc wise)..but found myself missing the HAM features i become spoiled with
i been reading these threads and seeing folks wondering about ham 3.5 compatability and issues pertaining to it..so i decided to go with my personal fav..ham 3.4..copied the 3.4 files over...and voila...WF runs like a dream with it..taken chitz and drassen and the chitz sam so far..no issues at all...while i dont get the facility improvments of 3.5..i do get all the suppression effects and dynamic militia stuff..so..HAM 3.4 works like a charm for those interested
