I tried the quick save function after capturing 2 sectors cause my men were severely injured and quit the game.

But when I continue my last game it starts with day 1 again, and no quickload possible.

Start a new game and try quickloading from that new game.

Sometimes this helps.

Thats not what I meant.

How do I finish my day? I can abort it, but then I restart at day 1 with my fresh mercs in sector 1.

I dont wanna restart, I want to turn in my quest, train mercs, mend my wounded etc.

How can I do that?

Win7, but nvm, I found something in the manual Very Happy

With 'c' I can accelerate the time and end the day.

One other thing, does mickey make an appearance in JA1 or do I have to wait for DG till I meet him.

ALl my guys are wielding .38 revolvers :heavy:

Where did you install it? Do *not* install it into the program files directory. Windows Vista and Windows 7 do not allow programs to update the files there. Install it into something like C:\games.

I believe quick saves to be permanent as well.

You can't trade your equipment in JA1. Mickey doesn't appear there at all.

The quicksave files will be automatically deleted at the end of the day. I've got a habit of copying the current quicksave file to a different directory for backup purposes before ending the day, because sometimes the game just hangs (black screen) at the end of the day instead of proceeding to the daily report screen. Without a backup copy this would lead to losing the day's progress. Btw, I'm using Win xp, so I don't know if this is necessary for you.

After a very long fight in S1, metavira is finally mine, or jacks

I depleted 20 clips of ammo, 15 grenades, and Ivan (RIP) before I realized the enemys are spawn infinite till I reach the building Very Happy

But there was something strange with my playthru, in one of the gamefaqs I read about some other quests that never popped up in my game. Brenda was never held hostage, no poison quest and no quest to retrieve the sappling (is there one for this, found this when I met with santino)

Congrats! On what difficulty did you play and how long did it take to finish the game? Playing on easier difficulty or finishing quickly may prevent some quests.

Thanks, I played at medium difficulty, and conquered 2-3 sectors per day.

Never accomplished a stealth mission successfully, despite using silenced weapons and sneaking around, it was impossible to kill the enemy that fast so he wouldnt shoot at me and alarm his fellas.

The water supply quest started fine, I meant that one where you have to find some flowers. I took some bundled flowers with me as soon as I found them, so maybe that broke the quest trigger ?

Not necessarily, though I've done the same thing and never had that quest. Would you like to investigate that if you have too much free time? Smile

Regarding the number of enemies in sector 1, there is a finite number of them. Your post reminded me that I had read somewhere that Santino would have ~800 soldiers. So I took an old save file where I had killed ~500 enemies before entering the last sector, and tested when they would run out. After six days of fighting, suddenly it became so quiet in the sector. I ended the day and checked the report to see how many I had killed. That was 765 during the whole game. Next day I went back there and took care of Santino and the fallow sappling. No more soldiers around...
