I've been playing WF 6.06 and I'm trying to change number of recruitable mercs. I want to change strategic squad size to 30,and thus increase the number of enemies on the map, but I tink that I'll need more menpower. Trouble is that I can't find option in .ini file. Is there any way to do this?

I am not super sure about 6.06 but in general the amount of starting mercs is controlled by the MAX_NUMBER_PLAYER_MERCS variable in ja2_options.ini.

Should your game not have a MAX_NUMBER_PLAYER_MERCS variable in ja2_options.ini or not have the ja2_options.ini file, then the EXE does not support more than 16 soldiers.

You also cannot change the variable in an existing game, you will need to start a new game. This is because setting MAX_NUMBER_PLAYER_MERCS changes how much room is reserved in the save game file. If you change the variable in an existing game you will get a read error when loading a previously saved game.
