@RageWinner We have no sound for new mercs, natives, Jack and Brenda, yet.
The sound for mercs will probable be added tomorrow. Smile

If you have no voices at all - check your options. Please, visit the options screen and make sure that volume of the speech isn't zero and the speech is switched on (it is the first option in the first column) Wink

Not really a Bug, but a problem.

How can I get it to work with the german version of JA 2?
Is there a special trick I should use?

Plus, this should be installed over JA 2 vanilla, right?

Im Looking forward to get this Mod to work for me

Greetings!

Yes, original JA2 without any other mods. Smile

Yaguar

I have never seen the German JA2. Sad

I'm not sure, that you have a problem. Wink

The English version and the Russian version of the mod are just similar - they have different files with texts. I think, you should try to install the English version of the mod on the German JA2.

It might work. Smile
But the texts in the game will be in English.

(I have both English and Russian versions of the mod. They are installed on the Russian JA2. And there are no problems)

We are happy, that you are interested in our mod. Smile

Yes, I did that, but the text files on the tactical screen are in Russian, not in English... :/

I cant access the AIM website, only thing I can do is create a IMP.

So I did that, and when I talk with the Professor, the written text is the original text from the modded NPC, and in german. Same happens when I talk with his daughter.
No problem with the soundfile though.

I dont know, maybe I installed it wrong? I installed it two times, first time copy-pasting and the second time using the installer. Both times I had the same problems.

Any Ideas? :/

@Yaguar That is very strange.

What exe file do you use? Have you copied all DATA folders into your game data folder?

The Russian text in tactics might be because the JA21m.exe can't find DATA/LangRes/default.txt

Jack's text in German means the game doesn't have fallowing EDT-files, I think you have some problems with data files. By the way, what portrait has Jack? New or old.

Please check, that in DATA folder there is only one folder of each name, if there are, for example, "Speech" and "SPEECH", it's bad and you should delete the new one and copy all files from it to the old one.

Thank you for your help,

sadly Im not at my computer right now, I will try what you said tomorrow.

Right now, I can tell you that I've overwritten all data files in my old ja2 folder. Jack is the doctor right? The doctor and his daughter had all new portraits, there was no problem with it.

I'll take a look at the things you told me tomorrow and I'll tell you. My main problem was that AIM was not accessible, therefore the game was unplayable for me.

We haven't helped you yet. Smile

Check all data files, maybe there are not all of them there.

Are there any other differences between you game and my screen-shots?

Yaguar
Jack is the doctor right?
No, he is a boss. His daughter is a scientist. Smile

How? There could be crash-reports in DATA folder, if it won't work you can try to show them to us.

@Yaguar:
Maybe you have installed your JA2 into a mod unfriendly location like ..\program files\..

If so: Uninstall. Then reinstall into a custom folder like e.g. d:\games\JA2

@Lion: I'll check the DATA tomorrow, then I'll report it.

There are no differences with the screenshots, except that the infobox below the map is in russian (I think)instead of english.

The problem with AIM is that I can access the main page, but the links to the profiles of the mercs and bobby rays and etc. are not accessible... I can click on it many times, but they dont work.

@Sam: No, I installed a copy on my desktop, an then installed metavira on it.

@Yaguar:

Please, open the console: "Start-->Run...-->Standart-->Command Prompt" and run this command:

dir "C:\Program Files\JA2" /S >D:\Output.txt


http://ja2.su/opensours/redactors/jz/Metavira/Test/1234.png

"C:\Program Files\JA2" - path to your installed Jagged Alliance 2 (Metavira 2/1).

It'll be good if you'll attach the file "D:\Output.txt". This command is create the list of files in "C:\Program Files\Metavira" and don't content any confidential information.

So, thats what I got today:

I installed a new fresh copy of vanilla JA2 on my desktop an replaced every folder manually with the metavira-stuff.

I deleted the german.slf and - voila, the russian letters were gone, everything in english now Smile
So, first problem solved.

Still, I cant use AIM. It just doenst work. I replaced the DATA folder a second time, but still the same problem. No Crash-reports, no doble-folders, nothing.

I was wrong when I told you that the written speech of the NPCs were in german, they are in english, but the VOICES are in german. But thats not a big deal since I can still read the mission goals. Downloading the ne speech-files right now, guess this will fix it Smile

My main problem is AIM right now.

@Yaguar The new speech-files are only for mercs now. NPCs will speak in German and say odd things but their subtitles are in English and they are correct.

Your problem with AIM is exclusive. Sad

1) Does A.I.M. work in Ja2 vanilla or other mods now?
2) What OS do you use?

1) Id never had a problem with AIM so far. Im starting to think that ots not a problem with the mod, but a general problem. Ill start to browse the forums a little.

2) Windows XP SP 2, and I have a JA2 1.02 german version

Btw all other things work just fine, Im on in-game day 3 or 4, playing just with my IMP and Elio.

@Yaguar Maybe there are some problems with the names of some files in the German version but our exe uses names of the English files.

We think, the best solution is to download the English version of JA2 and use it.
You can use this official downloader from the Strategy First

Bug in sector G3.

In the rightmost of the 2 crates outside the building there is an item identified by a bold question mark. The item name is Aa^Aa/Aa:AA. As I've typed it, the character following each "small a" actually appears over the "small a" in the game text, e.g., a/ is ... a with reverse accent mark over it.

There are 2 of these items in the crate. They each occupy a large vest pocket. I can pick them up, but when I click on them to get an item description, the game crashes. Does this thing have a function in the game? When loking at the sector in the map editor it seems to be an armor item.

I will be happy to send you a savegame, but you must first tell me how to do it.

@Lion:
Thanks, I will give it a try.

I found a way to solve the problem:
I installed Metavira on the Vanilla folder of JA 1.13, and it works well so far. Certain features are missing, but at least I can enjoy the new maps and "new" story Smile

Its a really nice Mod!

I'll try it with the englisch version though, I think it was a problem with my JA2 Copy, I dont know...

Thanks for the help! Smile

@Yaguar I can't understand you.

If you use only some data (animation etc) from Vanilla folder of JA2 1.13 there couldn't be any missed features of our mod.

If you use the data and the exe file from 1.13 there won't be a new story at all.

Quote:

Yes, please. It'll be much easier for me to help you, if you have Metavira installed on the clear English JA2 copy, because I don't know what problems can be in all other variants. Wink

Maybe the German version has some differences with the Russian and the English.

One of the missing features is, for example, the % chance to hit under the aiming cursor, but its a minor issue for me, not a problem at all.

But sometimes, when a sector is attacked by the enemy, and there guards AND mercs there, the guards dissapear as I enter the Battle Screen... I dont know if its just because of my exotic way of installation or a common bug.

greetings!

There are could be some strange things with them. If you have entered the sector before the guards arrived into it and now they are in this sector you should enter any other sector from the map screen (it's not necessary to have mercs in it) and the guards will appear in the first sector in tactics.

Please tell me how to do this. I am a Luddite in the 7th decade of life. I don't have a cell phone, no facebook, no web page; and don't want any of these or your pity.

I can manage to compress the savegame file and send an email (address please). Otherwise you'll jave to walk me through it. Or nevermind, as I'll probably finish today anyway.

You can also intall it in the "Data"-folder (not Data-1.13) of your JA 2 1.13 installation, thats how I did it and it works just fine! Also dont forget to delete the german.slf for the texts.

Write more information, please.

What version of the game?

In v0.36 you don't need to train green militia.

But crash is a bad thing. We'll try to solve this problem, but full description of it, saves or crashreports can help us.

Tnx for this beautiful mod. It is nice to visit Metavira again.

Few minor bugs so far v0.37:
-as you already know X-ray
-missing sounds for AIM characters
-ivan Cyrillic is not showing right
-after you rob an enemy there is long time to wait with clock (about 30sec), i have fast enemy movement setting on OFF, I didnt try with ON if that makes any difference
-brenda profile pic is not attractive (my personal opinion), she was nice chick in JA1 http://prntscr.com/15h50u
-i dont get those notes "S38 D10 ...."; i remember that i didnt know how to decrypt them in original game either, IIRC you have to visit right sectors on right day to intercept weapon supplies

That is all for now, mod seems quite free of bugs and well made, I will post more bugs if I found any.

Yes. We haven't got some of them. And files for Brenda and Jack. The work is still in progress. We hope, we'll find a way to have necessary sounds.

-ivan Cyrillic is not showing right
Do you know Russian? I've checked now, I think everything is OK. But I could probably forget to give you some important files. Please, give me a screenshot with bad Cyrillic.

Quote:
-after you rob an enemy there is long time to wait with clock (about 30sec)
We'll think about it. And I think it's not connected with fast enemy movement.

Quote:

It's a matter of taste. Smile
Some of us think that original Brenda looked like a snake.
As for this portrait - I've tried my best. :nails:

Quote:

Yes, but I'm not sure that these feature with notes and supplies is already working fine.
