Sorry, the save is gone because I don't expect this.

Pre-battle interface? Sorry, I don't understand.

That's the short interface when I shall place my mercs on the small edge directly before the fight begins, isn't it? With the
words CLEAR, SPREAD etc.?
I may place my mercs with RMB on the screen. What is the profit?
???

Yes.

RMB? I think LMB.

In some sectors, for example E5 from the east or south, you can't nrmally place you mercs in some places of this edge, but if you use ALT - you can.

@Arulcish Lion,

sorry, I don't like to disappoint you. But I can't do it.
Why --->PN?

Another case:
I have a question: I have found in B 9 three flowers. I know I should give them --->but to whom?
Jack has no interest and Brenda isn't in G 11. What's to do. Some of the trees are red.

And a special riddle: A had no icon of the micropurifier, only a fat black question-mark.
Jack take it as the purifier.
Now the flowers are only question-marks too.
I know in my first game there was an icon of the purifier.
Do you know the reason?
I hope somebody like this question-mark as the wished flower.

That's result of you way of protecting Brenda. After kidnapping and saving she lives in G11 again. But in you case she must be in the laboratory (in the house on the island). Try to give flowers to her.

Quote:

That's strange. There are icons of these items in the game.
Have you changed anything in the game since your last game? Any patches? Deleting any files?
What game version you see on the load screen?

By the way, pocket vests are green, are they?
In the folder with the game there is a file ttx.txt. Please, open it and write here the first line of it.

There will be one more patch soon, I'll check it one more time.

I have open it with an editor (Windows Cool. After this it is now "ttx".
The first line in it is

rem Metavira v0.34 (10.03.2013).

With "this" patch I must beginn a new game?

Brenda: In my game there is no message of Brenda's kidnapping.
Because I have held D 9?

I have seeked for her in all sectors with laboratories which I have won,
but I didn't find her. Which is the sector: G 5, D 9? I believe she isn't in a sector
of my own. I am possessing islands in the sectors G 6, G 10 and D 8.
In a laboratory or in a refinery?
Sorry, my trees change from yellow to red, more and more.

And what about a color of pocket vests?

No, you don't need to begin a new game.

Quote:

In a laboratory. Sector D9. There are two buildings in it: one large on the mainland and small on the island. You should look in the second.

Quote:

What do you mean? You saved it?
It must be "ttx.txt" otherwise the game won't understand it.

UPD Or it's just "ttx" (without ".txt") now? Windows can hide an extension (".txt") from the user. I think everything is OK with this file.

The new patch without beginning a new game: Nice to read!!!


Oh no! She is in this house which don't look like a laboratory. April, april! Mad
And the militiamen weren't on the isle that you couldn't see her without go to the
isle. She takes the "question-mark" as a flower and talks of a journal!

And I have given up the game because I ment the computer/game has lost Brenda by keeping
D 9 in any case. Because I couldn't find her and the trees changed red in a great quantity.
Mad


"ttx" instead of "ttx.txt". Yes, I think with opening it with a programm, windows 8
hides the extension. That is the explanation for the flower, isn't it? May I change this?
I never looked at ttx.txt before the first two or three beginnings of this mod.

Thank you for your helping hand!
The only compensation for this is that you know of my
six new beginnings of your mod.
Smile

Edit: You need batteries for a working extended ear?

Sorry, all my problems!
The pocket vests are brown or red-brown!

There is panic trigger in the laboratory (the main building), after pressing it there will be explosions. You can occupy the laboratory without outbursts. Then you can try to defend the laboratory with guards and your mercs. One of them (or enemies) can press this trigger and explode the building.

Brenda is placed in small building, because we don't want her to be damaged by this explosions.

Quote:
windows 8
So, as I understand, you are playing our mod with windows 8 and you have no conflicts of win8 and the game. Is it so?
If yes, it's great.

Quote:
May I change this?
I don't recommend you to try it. Changing ttx.txt is not very comfortable. There is an editor (you can find it in the topic with the official information). But we change it ourself almost in every patch. So you'll have to repeat all your changes after every patch.

I think problem with icons is not in ttx.txt
Because you wrote that pocket vests are brown, but they must be green.

I'll check graphics before the next patch. I hope it'll be ready during this week.

Quote:

It's usual for NO or Metavira official patches. Only after one of Metavira patches it was good to start new game to have an ability to play with new mercs, but you could continue the game and play without them.

Quote:

It depends on your options. (second message of this topic)
file options.ini
comments are in Russian, but it doesn't matter - they are in the post.
You need option UseBatteries if it's so:
UseBatteries = 1 You need batteries for working extended ear and night vision.
If UseBatteries = 0 - you don't need them.

Windows 8,

if you are interested:

I made several tries to Ja2 to work with it.
First I changed the options in WindowsXP, lower grafiks and Admin.
All German versions of 1.13 were working, because you can set the intro = 0.
The "old" Ja2 works with a savegame from Windows 7 or lower, because there is no
intro with a savegame.
All Engish versions old and 1.13 did'n t work with this
options. But there is a program which works with windows 8:
wine.
From this program I copied three "*dll" into maindirectory of
Ja2. They are necessary for 3 D, but now it works, even with
the intro:

wided3d, libwine and ddraw.

And the best: Ja2WildFire is working (Version without code) from TopWare Interactive.


I have looked into the options.
Usebatteries=0 is default!!
This is very good. I need them for the "X-Ray".

Mercs form Ja2WildFire (p.e. Henning and Monk?) with a new patch.If they are cheaper than Mike
I shall like them. I believe I must begin the sixth game.
When I gave up my last metavira-game I lost because of seeking for Brenda over two days
20.000 $ (40.000 --> 20.000 $). And I don't find her.
I gave up if I would like to engage Mike.
Therefore I asked you for her residence to know it for my current game and to avoid this
mistake.

@Fan Thank you, it might be very useful.

I think, you have put this yourself during the installation of the mod. Smile
The installation wizard asked you to mark additional options.

Quote:

I'm sorry, there is misunderstanding again. Sad There are won't be any new characters in the next patch.

These my phrase:
Quote:

Was in the past (I hope there are no awful mistakes in it) So it refers to the previous patches, which you have already installed.

I have forgotten something to mention, it seems because of other questions:

Before I have given up my last game I made sector E 4 (in Ja1 23, the last sector before
you - swimming? - reach the sector D 4 (23): absolutely terrible in NOVICE!
There are two bridges, every saved by two enemies with grenades, absolutely protected behind
trees, bushes and chests (when they will during the fight).
Then there are enemies behind not only one closed door but two before you may reach them.
My mercs have LOCK PICK 90 and Lock PICKING. NO one could open the door; they must blow up walls
and doors. They made it without one door and must retreat because they had no such as TNT for
this one.
And now: The next day all (!!!) enemies have respawned. I must "win" this sector again
because of this one enemy before.
Now this sector is borderland with three borders, a wedge in enemy's territory.
I made it but my mercs were hit, hit, hit and during healing perhaps for a half a
counter-attack of 12 enemies happens and then a new counter-attack.
Nearly all enemies have shotguns!

All my mercs overcame, but I had loose my fun and gave up! And my capital was now 6.024 $,
my daily expenses were 12.910, my income was 10.800 $.
"All" are waiting for the headstone which waits for me in the next sector.
But it seems to be my headstone.

Now I am at the beginning as above. This mod is very heavy for a normal party.
You ever write it's Ja1. Yes, the quests and the sectors are on priciple Ja1, but
not the enemies and their KI. And they have much better equipment than my mercs.

My mercs have grenades but they may let them at home. They all throw like babies
but the enemy hit at the point!!!! I save the game ever and ever before any of my
mercs throw. But no one hits not only at the point, not close to the enemy with
some effect, no so far away!!
This is in this game another reason to give it up.

But as I wrote above: I didn't give up for ever. I try to avoid the mistakes to
get more money to engage better mercs. But one of the first in the new game I shall
make: Try to throw. If this is so bad as in this last game since I found grenades in
a chest and used it, I shall give up for ever.

Bob, a leader and is throwing like a baby. Vinny with agility and dexterity, forget it.
Malice with strength 89 is throwing 10 m away.
It seems that this game is reacting upon skill THROWING and every enemy has this skill.
Then every ememy hits the head of your merc, and 70 hitpoints in spite of kevlar+
occured. And you must them stand up to reach your enemy behind the covering.
To reach the next enemy another of your mercs must do the same. You need two days to
heal them.

And this after the sector with many entrances like a labyrinth with much trees where
you can win four trees for sap and the enemy is atacking and atacking to get the sector
back (E 5/34). And ca. 14 more sectors are waiting for me.
Sorry, that's my personal impression and may be I stand alone. Then forget it.

I feel like Shakespear's Hamlet:
"To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
or to take arms against a sea of troubles
and by oposing end them."

Sorry, I couldn't end them. I gave up for
now.

@Arulcish Lion,

this was no critisism but only a statement. I wait for the patch, perhaps
I have more than 40.000 $ and I may engage Sidney for throwing?
Or should I help myself *twinkle*? I shall end this mod as I all Ja2-Mods
finished.

Why swimming? There is a path in sectors E3-D3. Smile

Quote:
There are two bridges, every saved by two enemies with grenades, absolutely protected behind trees, bushes and chests (when they will during the fight).
Who said the life is easy? Wink I assaulted this sector (E4) using the west bridge. First of all I killed all running enemies (I was a lucky, I met there two troops, so there were about 20 enemies Smile )
Then I crossed the bridge - one merc with AK47 was moving forward three others with rifles or assault rifles with sniper scopes shooted in the enemies.
Then I killed other all other enemies outdoors. Then with two mines and two grenades I opened this two buildings.

If your use explosives with your mind you can open almost all rooms in one building with only one explosion.

Quote:
My mercs have LOCK PICK 90 and Lock PICKING
You really mean mechanics 90. Wink But mechanics isn't enough for Lock Picking. The experienced level, wisdom and dexterity.

Those locks are for Mike or for Boss with risen experienced level, as I remember.

Quote:
counter-attack of 12 enemies happens and then a new counter-attack.
That's on of the best routs for enemy counter-attacks (only E3 or D3 are better) so almost all enemy squads will try to go through this sector.

I think it's very easy to defend it.

Quote:
Nearly all enemies have shotguns!

It's close to enemy base, so it's absolutely normal.

Quote:
"All" are waiting for the headstone which waits for me in the next sector.
But it seems to be my headstone.
Firstly, you can swim to D4 from D5.
Secondly, you don't need to occupy D4 for getting it. Wink

Quote:
And they have much better equipment than my mercs.
That's strange. When I reached E4 I had no problems with the equipment. In my team I used two AK-47, Winchester, M870, Remington 700 and 5,56 NATO assault rifle.

Quote:
But no one hits not only at the point, not close to the enemy with some effect, no so far away!!
I agree with you that grenade throwing accuracy is too low.

Quote:
Malice with strength 89 is throwing 10 m away.
It might be vary strange question, but I have to ask it.
Do you know, that it's possible to throw grenades sitting?
Enemies throw grenades standing. But if your mercs are lying or sitting they'll throw the grenade sitting and, obviously, not as far as standing.
So, if you'll stand up before throwing, you'll throw further then.

Quote:
Then every ememy hits the head of your merc
That's a very cruel feature. Smile
The helmet doesn't protect your mercs (or enemies) faces. So, if bullet plumps in face - it's very bad the owner of the face. :devilaugh:
You can use it.

Quote:
you can win four trees for sap and the enemy is atacking and atacking to get the sector back
What's a problem? Light blue guards can easily protect it.

Quote:
Sorry, that's my personal impression and may be I stand alone. Then forget it.
You are not right. Wink It was a great pleasure to discuss the game with you. And we'll not forget your personal opinion, cause we want to make a good and interesting game, so we are trying to analyze every players opinion. We have not too much of them, therefor your opinions is rather valuable for us.
Thank you.

Quote:
I wait for the patch
It won't be a great patch, but there will be some changes you may like.
So, I have finished to answer your huge post and now I'm going to translate the patch to English.
It'll be ready this evening.

@Arulcish Lion,

after shopping I'm here again.
Yes, I never wrote in this Forums so much how I write in case of your mod. Perhaps 1%.
It shows its "in German: Stellenwert" for me.

I played about 15 times Ja2WildFire and sometimes I hate the "russian realism", above all the
rocket-stations in D 2 and D 15 in WF sometimes awaited from Mike, above all the missing of
regeneration boosters as I am missing them in this game also.

When my mercs during two or three counter-attacks with ca. 10 Hitpoints are patients and
must leave the sector every time for the militiamen who defend this sector - you are right.
Then the mercs have to go back, I must look at context-menu for reparing, healing again
and all this again after some hours later. It's nervous, nervous, nervous.

The event for itsself, the attack, may be easy. But more counter-attacks and this activities
all about these attacks because the sectors are very well defended by the enemies, I must
say malicious, ever and ever. I know at this time I will never play in EXPERT then NOVICE is
yet malicious.


The way over sectors D 3 or E 3: I shall try in my other life in Metavira. In this Given-up-
game ( I must extend the contracts for Bob and Vinny daily.) I had no time and I have chosen
the short way, not this roundabout way. I had no time.
The rest I don't konw, I gave up.
These days when I seeked for Brenda!

The patch: We have to wait only till this night, isn't it?

If yes I shall break my new game.

It's a good way - you can use guards for defending every sector you occupied. But if you need only a headstone - it's much better to swim from E5 and don't occupy the sector. Just take a stone and go away. Smile

Quote:

It's ready. I hope, I didn't forget any important files. So, if you see Russian text - shout. Smile

By the way, what color are your pocket vests after this patch? Are they green?

Don't miss that now you should use JA21m_v37.exe.

Quote:

I really don't understand what for.
It's a small patch, which mainly changes the interface and some inner game engine for further work.

As I wrote before, we don't like to produce patches, which make the starting of new game necessary.

Yes, indeed. You are the best. Thank you for this.

Brenda?
I didn't know betimes that I have to ask..and a night is quickly comming and gone, here in Ja1.
In normal Ja2 I made during the night more than one sector. I must learn and I try to
fight in the night in Metavira...because of this long bridges and the bushes behind with
this malicious grenades-thrower.

@Fan No, there are no new mercs. I tried to explain it above. I wrote that the only case where you have reasons to start a new game was when we added new mercs (in v0.36), but even then it wasn't necessary.

Quote:

Yes, it's difficult. In JA1 it was also difficult. You can try to fight in the most difficult sectors at night, I did that in some of them.

this mistake with B 13 (from normal Ja2) is also in Vers. 0,36. I would be generous and
don't tell you.

Yes, the icons are now as they should be. The flowers are never a question-mark but a flower.
Sorry, Jack has the purifier, but I think it's ok now.

Sad
That text is a mistake. And we need to know about all mistakes, even tiny mistakes. Because fixing any of them makes the game better.

Of cause, all this items goes together. We need one (or two) more item icons. But in your style of playing you won't see it, as they are parts of Brenda's clothes.

@Arulcish Lion,

I have forgotten something, sorry.
In my last game I had one remote control. You have to put the
mine down and choose 1,2 etc..
But using the remote control, you could hear a "click" but no function.
What the matter with this item?

Edit: One of the goodies in this mod:
If you are wearing a pocket vest2 with a camouflage poncho and
change it with a pocket vest3, -4, -5 the ponche is automaticly
in the other vest.

@Arulcish Lion,

I'm sure I found the remote control and the TNT in a hidden chest, but not together.
First I found the TNT and I thought that there must be a remote control somewhere.

A question to you: Do you know Richard III.?
During a big fight he cried: A kingdom for a horse!

I would like to say: A kingdom for a X-ray. The last ennemy?! Behind this many bushes!
Searching for him high and low in Metavira. After so many beginnings of your mod.

But I can say: I know the story now, but without the end.

And I must write after all beginnings: D 9 is not so heavy with sky-blue militiamen.
Im my new game "they" were attacking with 22, 12, 22 and after this they had further
no interest. Now I understand the message after the first fight: "There is someone
waiting in the sector." The waiting person is BRENDA.

Edit:

I have found them just now:

Both, remote control and remote detonator are in a chest
in the little house in the south of sector G 7/56.

Yes, of cause. It's rather strange not to know about him. He is one of the most legendary historic man.

The only thing I can tell you about it - I know that it's not so funny to spend a lot of time in attempts to find the last enemy.

When I was making Metavira maps I decided not to use high grass on the island (I used it only in water). Because I understand that it's a sadism to enforce player to fight in one meter high grass, where enemies are almost invisible. Smile

@Arulcish Lion,

a question:

I have the sectors till range 7 (G 7 - B 7). Mike is not available. How many sectors must be won?

A notice:

In my game I can find in the sector with the AK 47 only one magazine with 30 shots.

A lot.
But it depends not only on the number of sectors. I've checked now. When I had 52 sectors, I could hire Mike. Maybe I had such an ability even earlier.

You are right. Smile
There are 30 shots in it too.

Mike is now in my team.
After winning the sectors G 11 - B 6 and G 5 - D 5. 20 sectors more are waiting for us.

@Arulcish Lion,

in sector C 4 there is an item, named AaAaAaAA. The item-picture is a question-mark.
If I take this item --->CTD.

And concern to a further question: What's the matter with this remote-control which
only "klicks" and nothing happens?

@Fan Glad to see you here again.

You are the second man who gave discovered it. It's a vest from very old ages. It's corrected already, so you'll see corrected map in the next patch. Thank you.

I see you are rather close to the victory. My congratulations.

@Arulcish Lion,

yes, I'm back again...
...with a praise.
I got the sector C 4 after finding some Colt M 16 and I thought:
If I don't find a medi-pack right now I have to break my game again.
But I made the sector C 3... and I have found a medi-pack.

I must write that your items are very well placed IMO.

But I also think for myself:
Perhaps is this the cause of MIKE that I am here in C 3?
He is a force!
Or my good luck with mercs who can throw a grenade such as Scully and Ice?
You have to choose such mercs in this mod. These sectors with the concrete walls
and the door like an eye of a needle and some mines behind!
My other mercs are throwing like children in a nursary school.

I hope I shall find any mortar shell in this mod!!!

Really, it's not our merit. We copied items from original JA, and added some new items.

I have to capture only two sectors more and I have only
one mortar shell!
I have forgotten any chest, isn't it?

I think so.
Or you are extremely unlucky person. Smile
There are 12 mortal shells with 40% to be found each.

So you should find 4-6 shells.

@Arulcish Lion,

I made it and I had only two mortar shells and one Law. I was seeking in every sector for
others. But bad luck!
What a heavy job!!!
In NOVICE!
The beginning of this mod is heavy and the last sector...forget it!
All sectors till B 2 are child's play in relation to the last sector...
without one ore two more mortar shells.

Another user has found four mortar shells and IMO is that the best
(40 % of 12).

@Fan CONGRATULATIONS!!!

You've done it!!! Your patience and tenacity are great!!!
I'm really happy that you succeeded in winning this mod.

Now you can tell people fair, that you fought not for fan, as in some other mods, but for honour and glory!!!

Quote:
In NOVICE!
Would you like to start it in any other difficulty level? Wink

Quote:

Oh, yes. It's really difficult.
But you know, in JA1 there were only 8 enemies till you enter the house. I mean, when you kill one enemy, one more enemy will appear in the house. We decided not to repeat this feature.
