So I decided to see how you maniacs have improved JA2 over the last year and downloaded Depri's SCI_Unstable_Revision_6279_on_GameDir_1722, and started a game on Expert with the default ini settings.

As is my usual strategy since the Drassen counterattack was activated, I wandered over to Chitzena to take my first town. After taking it, I got the Deidranna cutscene, and prepared for the usual 8-12 Elites to counterattack.

Instead, I got attacked by 80 Elites.

Is this normal? Can I make it not happen? I'd love for it to happen in every town after I get some better mercs and equipment, but this is too much too soon. I can't seem to find any settings to avoid it, and the aggressive AI ini setting is set to false, although I understood it wasn't working anyway. Any help is appreciated.

i'd have to see the rest of the INI file to see if any other tweaks were off and caused it, also what were your settings beginning the game. the progress rate can trigger some aggressive actions beyond the counter attack, and if that stacks with one of the city counter attacks it can give you a bigger than normal problem.

Hi :wave:

Look among the line:
TRIGGER_MASSIVE_ENEMY_COUNTERATTACK_AT_DRASSEN = TRUE

Below this you will find an additional setting:
AGGRESSIVE_STRATEGIC_AI = 2

Setting this to 0 means no counter attacks in cities (other than Drassen if you activate it above).

What Mausi said. Those counterattacks are sent the moment the queen's cutscene happens (even if you skip it). If you don't want a massive attack, be sure to deactivate it before that.

Ah, gotcha. Made the change and it worked. Thanks for the help.

Does anyone happen to know if turning the AGGRESSIVE_STRATEGIC_AI back to "2" later will allow me to be counterattacked in the remaining cities? I like the counterattacks, just not so soon. In fact, I might turn off the Drassen attack so I can try playing the old take Drassen first strategy if I can have counterattacks in the other cities.

Incidentally, the INI Editor doesn't seem to allow for changing the "AGGRESSIVE_STRATEGIC_AI" setting. The "New Value" box isn't there for some reason. I changed the file manually, but I thought I'd mention it anyway.

Thanks again.

Yes, you can turn it back on later.

I appreciate the help, and would also like to compliment you, in particular, for the fine work you've done on the game -- very impressive work indeed.

Thank you.
