In this thread I will report on the progress of the AR Revival project


Phase 1: Update AR for use with current 1.13 revisions

Done:
Integrated all updates, patches etc since 2014 into one AR1.4 SCI
removed all files identical to base 1.13 from the mod
removed some files that had only minimal differences (mostly old default values for NCTH that are superseded by current default values)
removed several *.edt files I temporarily introduced as a workaround for problems in Strohmann's update
split alternative music files into a separate download (saves ~160MB from SCI)
Updated all AR specific *.ini and *.xml files to 1.13 Rev 8131 (except as listed in In Progress and Open Issues categories)
Added missing subfolders to Profiles\UserProfile_JA2AR\
Compiled a list of all items introduced since the last major AR release, grouped into categories
moved IDs of AR specific CivGroups to a higher range (to avoid current and future conflicts with newly introduced 1.13 CivGroups like Volunteers etc.), updated ownership accordingly
Added <swatertype> and <usCivilianPoulation> tags to SectorNames.xml
Wrote a distribution plan to allocate new items to different maps
Adapted grid numbers and check tileset compatibility for helicopter placement at Meduna for Flugente's enemy helicopters feature
Checked if several *.dat files from Data-AR\Binarydata are redundant to base 1.13 files, => can be removed
Fixed several civilian placement and schedule bugs


In progress:
Update maps with new items according to plan
Compile a list of reported AR bugs that are actually inherited from base 1.13 (like missing headgear for JA1 and JA2UB mercs)

Open Issues


Expected release date for current phase
May 4th, 2016 (rescheduled from May 1st)

This looks like a very clean and structured approach by not just making AR compatible to the latest 1.13 release but also by cleaning up obsolete data. Great work CVB!

Thanks lots for doing this CVB. AR is an outstanding mod IMO and updating it to include the huge number of new features in the latest .exe files will give it a big boost.

No pressure (I'll be happy to try it whenver it's done) but how's it coming?

Not much happening here is there?

What is the latest build that anyone has got AR to work well with? Was anything special required? In the past it was necessary to manually relocate Pablo and Maddog. Does that have to be done?
