Ok since i really hate admitting defeat , so i brush trough the source code >.< .

Now how do i activate in TACTICAL NUMBER_OF_SOLDIERS_PER_SQUAD into the .ini

Since thats a base reference to the game engine itself .
Some coders able to help with that ?

OR some explanations , about the source code , does this means modifying Squad H and C from the source code .

(sorry way way noobishe i feel , totally out of practise)

I'm really no expert, but you should have a look at gamesettings.h and .cpp, that's the place where all ini settings are read. Probably also should have a look at wherever that variable was initialized before or it will likely override your setting.

So you're trying to implement 10 merc squads?

Thank you for the fast reply Smile

so found the source code string for altering the number of soldiers per squad .

Its in squad.h source code

// header for squad management system
#define NUMBER_OF_SOLDIERS_PER_SQUAD 6

So basically change that to 10 and use SLF extractor on zuxxex wildfire 6.04 lower bottom bar.sli . and lower button bar.ski (that needs to be renamed and sli placed at -51 X)
Gives people in JAG 2 v1.13 the choice of 10 soldiers per squad (Without having to do all the graphic work)
Or am i wrong in it ? needs to modify more ?

Somebody able to do that ? without corrupting the rest of the game ?
Come on smeagol the credit is all yours if you want , i just want a 10 squad option Smile
Before i go too deep and start messing around too much , and cant get out .

Try and see if it works.
As far as I know, no one else is working actively on this, so experiment a bit and see what happens.

>.< i wish i had a compiler here (not that i cannot download it ) , and honestly i am Sad scared to get addicted , once i open up a gate , there is no way back.

I start altering way too much that it totally ruins a game .
Maybe shanga or others wants to take the credit .

Ah well will try the easy lazy way of LUA init editing , see if that can work Smile
