Yeah sorry about that I just went instinctively to check the first post but for some reason all links were forbidden suprised

EDIT:
Ran into the same problem with the blackscreen and panicked, so I just read this and I wanna thanks you guys for keeping this up! it's time kill soldiers!

Will there be any problems if instead of 7805 I use 7816?

I also had a problem-black screen.
The solution to this problem was to move the folder UserProfile_JA2113AIM to the folder Profiles.

Dude no homo, but I love you.

No joy for me on getting Aimnas to run. I copied my vanilla JA2 directory, modedd it to 7805 version of 1.13. That runs fine.

I then overwrote with the consolidated contents of the three elements in the Easter 2015 release from OneDrive linked on the previous page. Game just crashes when I attempt to launch any of the two .exe (JA2 or JA2_7805_UB).

Would it matter that my version of JA2 is the Good Old Games "Gold Pack" edition?

If you want more info to try to troubleshoot I'd be happy to provide whatever you need, but for now I think I'll just stick to "vanilla" 1.13 happy

Thanks to Tais and DepressivesBrot we are setting up a github repository for AIMNAS so that you will be able to always get the latest updates asap (just like you do with svn). Tais or Brot will certainly be so kind as to include further information soonish how and where to get the files and the download link.

From now on all changes made to AIMNAS will be pushed into a github repository, this will give everyone the possibility to immediatly enjoy the latest changes to AIMNAS.
You can find the repository at https://github.com/aimnas/core

On the bottom right you can press the Download ZIP button to get a zipped version of the current state of the repository, you can also use the usual GIT tools to clone the repository and follow the latest changes, this is the preferred way of using this.

I've also enabled the issue tracker, please only report technical issues or weird things in there, you will need a github account for that.
Do not post any requests for guns/items/whatever in there, instead use the normal threads like http://thepit.ja-galaxy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&th=22177 to do such things

Hey guys

just installed the last AIMNAS with unstable 7786 (I think), started on insane with IMP, Scully, Fox and Grizzly. Scully had the FN MAG and even with that gun (impact 44) it takes up to ten! hits to kill one of these former easy peasies in the starting sector (I think I played about a year ago). Did I miss something in the options.ini? Or does it generally take a lot more hits to kill somebody now? Thx

Turned off disease again in the latest ini... My whole Chitzena Squad got Malaria and there seemed to be no way of curing it. Not even the extra added Malaria cure seemed to do anything (even after injecting 10 shots of it).



Edit:
Okay... fixed that issue with the cure not working... now it does.

Hello,

played eight ingame days now and 2/3 of Drassen are mine. Kudos for the great work.

A few questions:

1. Canteens - enemies don't seem to have them anymore, BR neither. How to get them?
2. Last enemies - does the ini option work where the last 3 enemies position is roughly marked? I always have to search and that gets annoying. checked my ini settings, ok. Resolution 1920x1080 Ingame preferences - check.
3. Some ini settings changes don't seem to work. E.g. whatever value I choose for starting money they remain original. Or I change percentage of elite troops to 100% and reinforcements are mostly regulars.
4.In night fights roughly 20% of militia and enemies stay in one spot even when one after ones gets killed (groups).

Thx!

1. You can find canteens on enemies and also in containers (depending on the map). You can also order them from BR. Look in the miscellaneous section under "other att.". It can happen that they are not available every time.
Also enemies don't always have them. Items are selected randomly. If you play without "drop all" they might also not drop on death of the soldier even if he had one.

2. Never tried that option. I like searching. ;)

3. If this setting is still in Ja2_Options.ini Smeagol should remove it. It's not used anymore. Check the corresponding block in TableData\DifficultySettings.xml for <StartingCash> parameter.

4. May be an AI issue, may be intended. Some soldiers are set to hold position.

A significant Update has been put on Github.

Changes include:
Some changes to Merc Profiles (requires re-start to actually matter... added Covert Ops to two mercs, Grizzly underwent a major trait change and got a nice salary raise)

A few new items (L129A1, some new cool helmets, Western Revolver belt, Shotgun belt that can be turned into a shotgun bandoleer vest)

Default slots for ammo belts (one in the vest slot, one in the combatpack slot.. basically this means, that you can carry 2 LMG ammo belts slung across your body without any LBE item... wearing a vest/combat pack obviously overrides these slots. It's an option to allow early game LMG carrying).

Check the Github page: https://github.com/aimnas/core

That's probably because I`m lazy and didn't update it properly...

There was a gun list which I always kept up-to date in the FAQ, but the forum migration didn't like the length of it and cut it in half... I somehow never had the time / motivation to fix that.

So, long answer short: There is no current item list. angry

Due to lack of a recent XML Editor version that can handle the new item tags, Bigmaps mod is confined to the JA2 7883.exe until further notice.

Also on the news: The JA2 summer convention 2015 is in the books... we've been working on some new features that will show up sooner or later but still need a big load of behind the scenes work. Can't spoil anything without permission, though. So you have to keep patient. ;)

Just a few words: It'll be awesome!

Looking forward to next years meeting.

Kinda. I've fixed the critical, data corrupting issues the editor had but some AIMNAS data (drugs) still needs to be updated to a new format.

"Just" placing items with the editor. Hasn't been done yet mainly because it's 1) a metric butt ton of work and 2) the item set is still subject to occasional rearrangements that would require subsequent map cleanups.

Just discovered the ExtraItems.xml files, haven't tried them out yet, would those work? Much easier to maintain when items change, I'd imagine. And if you play with show all items after battle turned on anyways, you weren't about to start opening every crate to find stuff anyways.

Loving this new AIMNAS. Great work Smeagol and thanks for all the effort. I'm a convert to the BigMaps way.

Battles are real battles with range and different weapons and weapon skills meaning something. Took a bit of fiddling to get it working right, and to discover that the Github website is where the new version is, and how to get it all working on Windows 8, but it was worth it.

Word to others trying to find out how to install AIMNAS since these instructions aren't anywhere obvious even if you search the Pit:

go to https://github.com/aimnas/core

and download everything then overwrite in the usual way. Look in the Docs folder to find out how to get it to run in Win 8.


NCTH seems to work quite well in this implementation and game balance so far seems great. The new JA 1.13 features seem to work nicely with the mod too, though letting me choose a sniper rifle and scope right off the bat really boosted my odds against the pistol-toting bad guys. I don't feel so bad now that I ran into one who had the same Springfield. Omerta has become quite the battleground (great).

I don't know if these are standard issue problems but all I've seen in the way of problems are quite occasional CTD's with no clear pattern and:

The Strategic Map is a scrambled semi-readable mess of black and white. I don't know why, and have followed all the Win 8 tweaks. Seems rather JA 1.13 and related to OS interactions but I can't say since I went straight to installing this mod.

All the ammo vanished (no other items, just ammo)in an Omerta sector inventory, seemingly randomly. Also, after that, when I put 4X .44 revolver clips into the sector inventory then picked them up again and put the pile in an LBE slot that accepted only 1, the other three vanished. Again, this might be a JA 1.13 thing (I seem to recall it happening a year or two ago), but worth mentioning. Perhaps there's a better work around for this sort of thing but I just put all the ammo in vehicular inventory or in LBE's on the ground. ```````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````` ````````````````````````````````````````````````

There's an option (Alternate Map Colors) that you need to turn off.

Yeah, I've encountered this before, it's a pity this still hasn't been fixed. I wouldn't expect anything spectacular from 1.13 as it seems to have died down quite a bit. Basically live with it or fix it yourself, because there's nothing much else to be done as its been a reported bug for a while now. :/

Seems to be rather quiet around here...too quiet...;-)

Just wanted to say that now that I've started a new game with the adjusted disease .xml file linked in the disease thread that seems to be controlling Plagueworld,I'm loving this Bigmaps project. Great work Smeagol...and a lot of it. The urban sectors must be hugely tedious to design, but I really enjoy the creative touches you've brought to the table, in both rural and urban sectors. Makes the game very different and much more tactical. I hope the rest of the changes happen; both the rest of the maps and the quests (it's true, pretty much all of them don't seem to be complete yet (gotta chuckle when you see "Not Finished" hombre).

Great stuff and many thanks for the effort.

Thanks for the feedback. Always welcome to get some positive comments.

At the moment real life keeps me rather busy (being a full-time teacher and my wife expecting twins and all...). I hope that it will eventually become a bit calmer again and I will have some more time to continue with this project.

I recently added a few more items (namely Aguila 12 gauge Mini Shells that will increase capacity of pump-action guns considerably in exchange for damage values), but didn't even find the time (or motivation) to do the item pics... Hope is still there, I will regain my motivation and will get more time eventually to continue, so don't worry.

Just want to add my thanks Smeagol. The work you are putting into this is outstanding. I haven't played the AIMNAS (don't want to be teased with only half the map;)) but ive been lurking for some time now and just wanted to let you know you are a god among men.

Also, good luck with the twins. One baby is hard enough, 2..... you, sir, have my sympathies. Just remember tho: you have this whole community supporting you and wishing you an easy time in your real life struggles.
