Hi ALL! I have been playing JA since the original. I have played and loved v 1.13. Its been a few years since I have installed. I have some questions.

I am building a second home PC tomorrow and I would love to try and Lan some JA 1.13 multiplayer. Is this doable and easy? Which build has the most stable multiplayer (mostly PvP)? How much knowledge does it take to setup? Both computers will be setup on same network and wifi. I have a DRM-free version of JA2 Vanilla. I will upgrade both computers to the same stable Build.

I will also be doing a playthrough of single player. Which version/build do you recommend? What has changed lately?


Also: Is there a player editor? I like to make multiple custom mercs with custom attributes and stats. Is there a trainer? for more of a sandbox playthrough? like extra starting cash?


What graphical options are there? 1080p? or higher?


Anything else I should know? Thanks guys! Probably my second favorite game EVER! I cant wait to try multiplayer too!

After reading the faq and wiki, it answers most of my questions. Can I ask what is the most stable release and update available? It's a little confusing because of the multiple updates. Maybe someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks.

The last stable is 7435 with its updates. but most of the latest builds are remarkably stable.

Can't say anything about multiplayer but about the other questions:

1. I always recommend the latest development build because it has all the features and fixes. However, a lot of mods are not compatible with it because they haven't been updated in a long time. So if you want to play a certain mod you should check which version of the game it requires.

2. There is no working character editor for JA2 1.13 but you can create several IMPs already within the game and select their appearance, traits and stats. Just select the number of IMPs you want when starting a new game.

3. Check Ja2.ini for a list of display resolutions. They go as high as 2560x1600.
