Hello Everyone

One of our users OsamodasxD, has just released the completely new mod. This is a pure JA2 with a whole new maps. It's like JA2 Wildfire maps comparing them to normal JA2 maps with some improvements in the source code.

If someone would like to play with old JA2, but with new maps, then this mod will be accurate for that.

It's a test version, so some bugs may appear.

Until the author makes a better translation, I guess we gotta do with what Google gives us:

http://jagged-alliance.pl/artykul469/ja2-reloaded/

Quote:
A few weeks ago we informed you about the appearance on the scene moderskiej JA2 new project , which, as it turned out, was close to completion, and the author pointed out the beginning of the holidays, as the expected date of its release.

Developer, or OsamodasxD , most fulfilled that promise, and for several days we can test a completely new modification, based on the classic Jagged Alliance 2 , with absolutely all sectors made ​​from scratch again, and with many other interesting improvements.

Immediately in the foreground are inserted into a new strategic map, the orientation of all the important locations otherwise. This refers to the cities (including new names), position missile SAM Site, especially hidden secret sectors (prisons, factories, heavy equipment), location Skyrider, forksroadsand other similar. Even the boot sector is in a completely different position. The whole will have to discover yourself, because no one but by far not know where it all is.


New sectors, it is very well done a good job. All maps, and there are more than 200 (including the basement), have been re-created. This can be compared to maps of JA2 in relation to the map of JA2 Wildfire , but in our opinion, the sectors of JA2 Reloaded, are even better than those of the Wildfire. They have been worked out in every detail, houses were built on the piece, and the same with roads and roadsides, rivers, forests, airports, prisons, mines (including basements) and other related sectors. A lot of work and time spent to get it all done, raises a lot of respect for the Creator.


Course, there was change in weapons. At the moment, there are those who know the original version of JA2, but from what I have learned, it is planned to implement the rest of the UB JA2 and JA2 Wildfire. The statistics have also been changed a little bit, but to no spojlerowania, as it is very fresh modification, we will not publish them. Let each of you discover them yourself, know and test.

In other changes, the most interesting are the following:

- The rebels will no longer be inactive to us, we can only talk to them. None of them will no longer be able to hire, but in the first sector will fight with us shoulder to shoulder (controlled by the computer).
- Before you rent a certain mercenary, carefully check his stats and the price, because they have been more or less unchanged.
- All weapons will be available online, on the map, as well as in opponents. Of course, the option will be implemented in full Drops All Items.
- Self-defense will now be trained not only in cities but also in other important areas. Referring to JA2, it was to include Tixa, Orta, Estonia, San Mona and the like. Additionally, in one sector can be the six mercenaries to train up to 28 defenders.
- Tanks will occur more frequently, and not only in the queen, but also in other locations.
- The game will be placed so. "Znajdźki" or hidden places in the eight sectors in which we can find very valuable items.

If you want to feel the atmosphere of the good old classic JA2, this mod will be perfect for you. We strongly encourage you to try it out and share your opinion with us about it.

No, this is only for vanilla JA2, but the maps themselves should work without problems with clean version of the newest JA2 1.13.

I will check and write what excatly are these improvements.

I've taken the liberty to add the Google translation to the original post. Bad as hell, but better than nothing. If someone who speaks Polish can come up with a proper translation we'd be grateful.

Starts off ok , no problems other than it's all in Polish , as expected , maybe someone'll do a translation ?
Nice maps , though for me ,I'd prefer to have the screen resolution in 1024 x 724 .
It's as advertised , original JA2 reloaded and nothing wrong in that !
Give it a go boys and girls ( gotta be some somewhere , we can't all be lonely losers ..... Very Happy )

Done. Full English version is complete. I replaced the link in the first post, to a new one, that is leading directly to an English version now.

I asked the author about it and he agreed to everything. You can take his mod and convert it to whatever you want. One request is that, to put author's name (OsamodasxD) to the new version of his mod.

[color:#CC6600]Ja2 1.13 Reloaded Prototype[/color]
(Original mod by OsamodasxD)

I'm in the midst of doing a 1.13 Reloaded Prototype, will need beta testers. PM me if interested.

[color:#3333FF]What 1.13 Reloaded Prototype will be:[/color]
1. A map mod (similiar to AR) with a focus on showcasing some of the underused utility (non-gameplay) features that coders have made available. There will be no custom exe and no new exclusive features other than what 1.13 offers.
2. Stock maps from Reloaded will be used; while the rest uses 1.13 data. Strohmann's Stock Data Overhaul will be integrated as well.
3. It's not a 1:1 conversion, main features to be maintained if possible with further tweaks and balances.
4. Difficulty envisioned to be a notch higher on the same setting, compared to 1.13.

http://i.imgur.com/uo0DZRg.png

Expanded lots of effort with MovementCosts XML. Here's the bottom half table:

Drasnia Hospital
http://i.imgur.com/Bdoq1pI.png
(Check first post link for more screenshots)

Things to note:
1. Quests and cutscenes stuff are still based on Ja2. They may be broken in some ways like being referenced to the original cities but still playable.
2. Map Item loots based on Ja2 Classic items; they are classic maps after all. So this will be more of an assault-centric mod.
3. Some unsupported 1.13 features, especially those that require new data and tags before they will work proper.

Testing required according to priority:
1. Enemy progression balance
2. Quest-related stuff like their triggers, dialogue text and their required map-placed item
3. General game balance and bugs

Testing will commence within this month.

PM me too if you like to contribute to the modding.

Earliest Release Date:
After Mercs Background feature stabilizes AND feedback from testers.

-----------------------------
While OsamodasxD will continue refining Reloaded for Ja2 Classic, do sound out your interests in playing OsamodasxD's public-released maps on 1.13 in this thread. Smile

Special thanks:
Starchris for answering quires, the public-released Reloaded sourcecode and doing all the liaising with OsamodasxD.

Besides some good Samaritans' well-wishes, I have no takers on the Ja2 1.13 Reloaded Prototype beta testing.

No closing date for Ja2 1.13 Reloaded Prototype beta testing, just PM me anytime before its release.

There should'nt be a problem with vista since JA2 runs fine with vista and win7.
Win 8 is different, tho, as it is known to have issues with playing the intro of vanilla JA2. So, if this mod has gotten rid of the intro video or allows disabling, it should work as well in win8.
One workaround, that may or may not work with the mod and win8 is to install direct3D drivers from "wine".

Thank you for the new mod. It has been good up until now. Ok here is the problem... Spoiler location of SAM ...



Upon taking over the SAM site ( called the Central SAM E-16 ). Which is located on the North Eastern edge of the map I get a crash to desktop every time the dialog between Deidrana and Elliot finishes, even if I skip the dialog it crashes out.

Any ideas and or solutions would be helpful.

Ok now to the common questions...

Yes... I did a complete Clean install of JA2 vanilla and then copied the download of Reloaded English version into the main folder overwriting when necessary. I am running Vista playing Expert - Tons of Guns - Realistic - Running the ja2ReloadedENG_test exe and have had no other issues with this mod so far. I have not changed anything else about the game.
I have taken 3 cities and this is the second SAM site I took. Still cant find Skyrider anywhere ( searched about 50+ sector so far ).

Oh and yea I have not been active on the boards in a long time .. but I do drop in and keep up with things.

Seems like u r not aware of e Bearpit PM function...

Here's the replicate:
Quote:
@Samsite CTD
No crash on my side after e meanwhile scene in C15.

To test: Use e oldest savegame/new game, teleport there and 'Alt+O' e enemies to c if it still CTD. If no CTD, savegame probably corrupted.

@Skyrider
Skyrider cannot be found in current mod release. Get on marching to the black queen.
(I'm a fan of that if u know what I'm referring to.) Smile

Skyrider supposed to b in:
Toggle Spoiler

Skip Angel Maria & Kyle leather shop quest. They r currently broken as well.

Cheerz,
Buggler

P.S. U hav my respect for playing Ja2 at resolution 640x480. Smile

Well here is an update to the SAM site CTD. I went back to an earlier save and used the GABBI cheat to kill off everyone ( but had to destroy the tank myself since GABBI doesn't work on them ) in the SAM site and when the after mission cut scene ran it worked alright. So I went back to the earlier save and replayed the SAM site normally and after taking the SAM the cut scene played and BANG CTD.
I tried retaking the SAM 4 times each time was a little different as you can imagine but in all cases I got a CTD at the end of the cut scene. I retried the GABBI cheat starting from the same save point and again everything worked fine with the cut scene and no CTD. I replayed the SAM Site mission again and even created a new save point and still got the CTD. This is making me not want to even try to continue. Any other suggestions?

And No I dont like to keep the Cheat status in my game files or it wouldn't bother me to just continue afterwards.

So, is anyone else playing this mod?
I played on vanilla, but the new towns are not there, the rebels i cannot find and there is no mine income, so I ended up with just my IMP char after hiring Raider and Spider for 2 weeks, only to spend everything on the militias in Drassen and Chitzena.
Any tips?
Has the 1.13 mod ever been released?
