Whatever, it'll still be fun. I pre-ordered it. I just hope they added more side missions and fun item quests.

Pre-order and you just may get to play a little demo before the release.
(Thanks to the EA overlords for that one.)

Too bad Steam f**king sucks. I have issues with the validation of game files time and again (and also Steams tendency to lag and crash).

I pre-ordered this game too from Steam. I have my flag high waving on top of a flag pole for this game.

So, apparently Steam decided to add some TF2 hats and medals to the preorder package (in addition to the known stuff). I'll leave it to you to speculate on reasons for this ...

Probably because half of the 100 pre orders they had got canceled after the release of the demo. And the saddest things is those TF2 hats are better modelled and textures than the ones in JA:BiA it self...

Well, I just mailed Steam to cancel my pre-order. Thanks for all the info helping me avoid buying a piece of shit game, guys! (As I'm also a Fallout fan, I've had way to many bad experiences concerning 'franchise reboots' already.)

On a sidenote, I can't believe I still remembered the password for this old account o' mine.

Yeah, that's what I saw in the weapons.txt from the demo.

Toggle Spoiler


There are also "addon-weapons" in there:
Toggle Spoiler


Don't know if they are in the full game or in an "premium" add-on. Gonna play the game in a second, will report back.

Where did you find those? Only got solid archives and didn't find a working unpacker.

There's are already people 'modding' the game in a thread in the general forum on the official boards (which are down atm).

You can find the configs and unpacker by sbobovyc here:

https://github.com/sbobovyc/JA-BiA-Tools
https://sites.google.com/site/sbobovyc/ja-bia

This guy is pretty amazing.

A mod should make a seperate JA:BiA forum with a modding subforum.

That doesn't help with the .pak.crypt files though - and those are the ones with the most promising file names. Or did they get rid of that BS in the release version?

maybe they did not use encryption/compression in retail version due to not having to save space (as opposed to demo)?
Let's hope so ... Smile

Sorry to disappoint you guys both are still encrypted in retail...

configs_win32.pak.crypt
interface_win32.pak.crypt

sbobovyc manage to get the content of both files through a RAM dump:
https://sites.google.com/site/sbobovyc/_/rsrc/1328331092447/ja-bia/configs/configs.png

But we aren't able yet to repak them.

You can unpak the other files, rename the packs, change the files in the unpacked folders and mod the game that way.

Changing the face textures would be good start I think Smile

the voice acting in eng version is horrible. most of the dialogue seems unchanged, only re-recorded with random homeless people from the street, who just happen to speak english (more or less).
I hope modders will be able to replace the horrid voices with ones from JA2, along with the mugshots.

Nah, not disappointed. Was just curious how he got at the files in that screenshot.

Koda, can we load config files from the encrypted files now then by putting them in the right directory?
