Hello to everyone in this wonderful website.

Long time ago , i bought a game called Soldiers at War. At that time i was relatively new to PC gaming, only after installing it and trying to play it, i realised that it was a turn - based game, which i had no idea of .Anyway, the game sucked and it didn't do well, it also left me with a fear for turn - based games.When JA2 shipped, i noticed it on the selves and asked the sales guy about it , his reply was " great turn based game" . I froze momentarily, then left.
I went back a few days later and finding no other new but worthy games,i picked up JA2 with a sense of unease. Read the manual from cover to cover, the detail made for in interesting read so my hopes went up a little.I liked the interfaces and all but had no idea how to build a good team or which ones to pick for my starting small squad, the turn based wasn't as horrible as i expected. The bird's eye view allowed me to survey the battlefield and soon i started figuring out little tricks, or tactics.Such as camping around building corners to set ambushes, going prone or kneel, creating crossfire situations,etc, and i started having a blast happy I got more into it over time,My starting team would be Shadow,Night (my IMP, night ops merc) and Steroid (for the Repair Kit he carried). Later on when i got my first C-7 i exclaimed "wow",looking at the stats, imagine my reaction when i got the FN-FAL, the superweapon :)With scope, laser sight,etc .I like playing night ops and became really good at it.
I still play this game to this day and i have found the lovely mods, 1.13 and Arulco revisited and JA2 has become a whole new game.Now i am having twice the blast happy) I also found the first JA, Deadly Games,UB of course and even tried BiA.
Anyway, this is my story with JA2 and i am more than happy to be here ,among all the other veterans :)Great work,great site, i hope that we'll be around for a very long time, keep up the awesomely great work !!!

Welcome.
Don't slip and fall on the massive amount of 1.13 features. cheeky



1.13: Install JA2, unpack latest, play.
AIMNAS: Complete 1.13 installation, Download ZIP and unpack, play.

Slax, i am not quite sure what those links are for. Is there a new version of 1.13 having been released ? I am using the 7435 with the 7609 patch and the 1.4 Arulco revisited, i think, the latest version that goes with the 7609 and no problems, except that the smugglers have no speech, It doesn't matter to me since i don't need to start hostilities with them and they don't have anything that i can't get from BR's.
About AIMNAS though, i have been seeing this acronym popping up everywhere, what exactly is it ? Isn't it integrated in the 1.13 ? or at least some of it's features ? If you can spare some time to give me a bit of information regarding AIMNAS, it'd be very cool.

Thank you for the help gents. Apologies for the late reply, life gets in the way.
I would like to start a thread where we can post some memorable moments from our JA experiences over the years of gaming, if such a thread does not exist. I'd like to get some feedback ,your opinions. What do you gents think ?
