I better put it in here, item choices get really wonky. Im now at 86/86 Progression and attacking an sector with elite guys and i noticed that the guys not wearing any armor.. ???
Heres a picture of a sector i assaulted before with unselled loot:

As you can see the Equipment is pretty crap. The weapons are crap too.
And now here too:


This cant be intended right? In this rate i never will find any AEKs or ANs.

I see on your picture several NVG's, spectra armour and high level weapons.
Have no idea what are you talking about.
If soldier has no armour, someone should check his settings on the map.
Enemy soldiers have all kinds of armour and other equipment in their inventory tables.
Enemy gun progression is based on real world, so there will be no AEKs or ANs, it's not stock 1.13.
In the next release you will be able to buy AEK guns from BR and you should be able to buy many rare guns from Tony in actual release, including AEKs and ANs.

Is this only with my game? Do i have something to check? Camo is not working, i had it since the beginning but never mentioned it

Camo is working but the level to change palette was too high, also it used different levels for soldier animation and corpse.
Fixed in r1500

Well the problem is that i have the feeling that the enemys dont even try to stop me. 24 Guys in a hidden Army Outpost with 2 tanks this is the loot:


1 Spectra Vest? 4 NVGs? 6 ExEars? For 24 Elites? Shouldnt Elite guys at least wear Kevlar Vests? They are clearly underequipped...

NADA found in Fixed -Hawkeye

Most likely a map problem - bad soldier settings or equipment. Have to wait for Hawkeye to review soldiers at map.
Option SOLDIERS_ALWAYS_WEAR_ANY_ARMOR is enabled in VR, so any enemy should have at least some helmet/vest/pants.
As for NVG numbers, the game decides randomly when to give NVG to soldier unless the soldier is manually given equipment by map maker.

Well i guess you can put it like that big grin they dont wear armor and i one shoot them with purple ammo and silenced p90 big grin Its easy that way becouse only a few soldiers have ExEars & NVGs, so they dont see each other in the night.

I looked now into the sector inventory and found something interesting it seems like the following sectors have no armor / only a few:

Toggle Spoiler


Heres a screenshoot of the whole Malino Town Loot: (AK-74 was sadly dropped by a terrorist on my list of Carmen)
Toggle Spoiler


And now in the Malino Baracks:

@Infinet
I still don't see the problem. Enemy has all kinds of weapons - sniper rifles, machineguns, assault rifles, grenade launchers and even mortars.
Ammo drop from enemy is limited in this mod, but there should be enough ammo to fight unless you like to use suppression too much, in this case you can always buy more ammo from BR or Tony.
P90 has coolness 8
MGL-140 - coolness 8
Mortar - coolness 8
SSG-P1 - coolness 9
It looks like enemy inventory is reasonable for this progress with the exception of enemy armour that needs map checking.

The solution I see is to manually give enemies at key sectors high level undroppable NVG's and Extended Ears, this should solve the problem with night battles.
It should be possible to change NVG/Extended Ear probability in the code also but that will require some time and can possibly break the balance.

Sector O9 Seems to be ok with armor. I found GAS_EXPLOSION (NADA) in the inventory in this soldier: Fixed- Hawkeye - This map is one of the few with detailed placements/equipment.

A bug. After I put a grenade into a hand of a merc and the merc is moving or at least turns into a new direction and in efect the merc spots a new enemy, not seen by anyone else, the granade is teleported back to the inventory.

If an option "inventory manipulation AP cost" is on, this may spoil you turn...otherwise it is clickwise annoying thing. Not sure whether it is more general issue or only V:R thing.

N8, N7 is armorless, only one guy had spectra vest.



Can someone confirm this or is this only in my client?

@Xafloz were you in my mentioned sectors and the enemys were armorless?

Btw, How can i activate Cheats? It seems to be deactivated. Would make a new game and test this on my own but i wouldve to play hours to get there again...

I'll take a look, but I generally haven't messed with many Queen's army enemy loadouts in the maps, the only detailed placements I've worked on is usually civilian's and some Hale & Burton, Kingpin staff. The others will be using data from the original Vengeance mod or externally from the maps.

Try to engage a merc during the game and you will see!

RUNTIME ERROR or not?

I don't understand what "engage a merc during the game" means, sorry.
Can you explain how to reproduce the bug?


I did not replicate this bug earlier in the game, but have assigned a single merc to squad three later on and then set movement orders, with no esc crash happening in my testing.

Hi, ich stelle fest, dass die, die mir helfen wollen, Deutsch "können". Deshalb hier ausnahmsweise in Deutsch.
Danke erst mal für die Antworten.

Den von mir geschilderten Bug gibt es bei allen Versionen von VR, mindestens mit "7609". Mein System: Win 8.1.
Ich beginne das Spiel mit einer Party.
Und schon auf dem Weg nach Drassen, also innerhalb einer ganz kurzen Zeitspanne seit Beginn des Spieles,
passiert der Bug:
Ich will einen (zu mehr komme ich gar nicht) zusätzlichen Söldner engagieren.
Dann: Egal, ob eine Woche oder zwei, egal ob mit oder ohne Ausrüstung, alles von mir probiert:
Der Söldner sagt zu und noch im Bildschirm von AIM oder MERC erscheint RUNTIME ERROR.

@Hawkeye,

Ich komme gar nicht dazu, dem Söldner einen Marschbefehl zu geben.

Ich hoffe, es wird jetzt klar, was passiert.
Ich habe VR entweder mit der "Full" installiert oder mit Ja2+"7609" (einschl. Patch)+VR. Egal. Ja2 = Ja2Gold_engl.

Ich teste VR seit Beginn, aber leider immer nur mit der Party zu Beginn, ohne Söldner von AIM oder MERC unterwegs dazu zunehmen.
Deshalb weiß ich von dem Bug erst jetzt.

Well.. in N6 there is the last enemy which cannot be found. Tried two times already, I mean I killed all fellas, but one was there nowhere to find so I leave the sector and come back later to fight again after the sector was reinforced..., but not going fight for the third time... Without a code it is impossible to finish the fight in the sector at least in my playthrought. So it would be more then welcome to support those who support the modders in their efforts ;)

As suspected with a quick inspection of N15, no enemies have detailed placement, so no strict developer defined equipment load-outs have been defined, only some (mainly Elites) have priority placement which then uses data from elsewhere for their equipment, most elites have GOOD to GREAT Equipment and Attributes, so maybe that data is out of date, not very good or something is broken. I can of course kit-out enemies individually with detailed placement but it may pay to look how the game engine is defining enemy equipment elsewhere for the rest of the game globally.

After trial and error figured out that the enemy was locked in a one of six columns next to the entrance to the building in the sector. Someone had put a living man into a title and surrounded him by 4 walls. How cruel...

I have Cobra maybe in one battle only, but you know he is a driver a drives supply with reduced use of fuel, but I don`t remember the mod crashed due his talking in the fight.

I explain: The RUNTIME ERROR happens during the hole game, not only on the way to Drassen!!!

I made a new Installation:

1. Ja2_1.02 (TopWare Interactive with the white eagle after starting the game) + "7609". This game shows no RUNTIME ERROR.

2. + VR: This game shows the RUNTIME-ERROR, great excepition: Boss!!!!! I may engage him!

Hopefully Scheinworld can discuss with you, Fan. At the moment I'm not experiencing such an issue, but it's also hard to understand some of your messages. You mentioned the game did not crash before when using Ja2_options.ini: READ_PROFILE_DATA_FROM_XML = TRUE (Henning etc. are now mercs.) so why not play with that function?

@Hawkeye,

thank you for your answer.
Sorry, I don't like to make trouble for you.
But I don't understand your problem. I have explained in English and German the bug.
I would like to test, not only to play the game.
I explained the bug (yes: the bug): If I set READ_PROFILE_DATA_FROM_XML = FALSE, the game don't crash.
But I must play only with the mercs from vanilli like GUS etc.
If I set READ_PROFILE_DATA_FROM_XML = TRUE, I cannot assign other mercs beside the mercs from the very beginning.

With my setting in Ja2-Options.ini "TRUE"
I can play with all mercs up to 32 from the beginning and then dismiss one merc if I would assign p.e. Joye and so on.

I hope now it's clear.

Not sure if this is a recent 1.13 bug or something from VR (please let me know) but it appears as though the S&W M&P15R cannot accept any attachments even though it clearly has a rail system. https://img42.com/xk3k7

That one's been updated but the latest items xml is not ready for download yet. For newer weapon attachment details keep an eye on this post. These are quick and dirty fixes, so some will still not be 100% accurate.

No trouble, Fan, just maybe a little hard to understand fully. I don't speak German which is why I suggested hopefully Scheinworld can help.

Until code can be inspected, I'd suggest playing with READ_PROFILE_DATA_FROM_XML = FALSE, just don't recruit the Wildfire Mercs if you don't like them. Another option is seeing if this is an issue that happens in 1.13 and not just Vengeance. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

The latest version removed option of attaching rod&spring to ( and a few more I guess...):

CAWS RAS
CAWS ACOG
G11 RAS
SEAL RECON Rifle
COLT M16A4 SAM-R
AA-12 CQB
FN P90 RAS

Is it intended?

Previous changes removed option of attaching r&s to KRISS VECTOR.

@Hawkeye,

I have tested Ja2_1.13(7609) by changing Ja2.ini to:
JA2 1.13
VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.JA2113.ini.

The result: I may assign every merc after beginning the game. No Crash!

This may proof: It's a problem of VR!

By the way: I play Ja2 since 1999. You Need to have a harddisk named C and a cd-rom named D to play the game.
Do you really think I like all this mercs from vanilla more that from WildFire or Ja1? On the contrary!

Edit: Explanation in red "Attempting to QuickCreateButton with out of range ImageID -1."

Hopefully Scheinworld can discuss with you, Fan. At the moment I'm not experiencing such an issue, but it's also hard to understand some of your messages. You mentioned the game did not crash before when using Ja2_options.ini: READ_PROFILE_DATA_FROM_XML = TRUE (Henning etc. are now mercs.) so why not play with that function?



So:
Fan described a runtime error by recruiting new guys from AIM / MERCS in the MOD.
He cleared his first sector and advanced a bit and tried to recruit new soldiers in laptop. After the dialog the game crashed.

Well i am very surprised becouse i thought it was something with his VR BUT look at this:


Im surprised no one got this error its... game breaking i guess (wont test it if its maybe progression based, maybe u can recruit after you captured your first town? would be a matter of seconds with cheats shy big grin )

I never got this error before becouse i played in DIE HARD MODE and this option of soldier recruiting was disabled for me anyways...
Got this in my first try. Anyone who would test it too? Its about 5 Minutes.

Just clear the first sector and then recruit 1 new soldier. As soon you had your dialog with the desired soldier (in my case Stella but she was absolutly randomly picked) you get this error i posted.

@Fan

Du bist tatsächlich nicht der einzige mit dem Fehler, ich war leider in den letzten Tagen beschäftigt um dies zu testen.

big grin

1 Spectra Vest? 4 NVGs? 6 ExEars? For 24 Elites? Shouldnt Elite guys at least wear Kevlar Vests? They are clearly underequipped...

Most likely a map problem - bad soldier settings or equipment. Have to wait for Hawkeye to review soldiers at map.
Option SOLDIERS_ALWAYS_WEAR_ANY_ARMOR is enabled in VR, so any enemy should have at least some helmet/vest/pants.
As for NVG numbers, the game decides randomly when to give NVG to soldier unless the soldier is manually given equipment by map maker.


As suspected with a quick inspection of N15, no enemies have detailed placement, so no strict developer defined equipment load-outs have been defined, only some (mainly Elites) have priority placement which then uses data from elsewhere for their equipment, most elites have GOOD to GREAT Equipment and Attributes, so maybe that data is out of date, not very good or something is broken. I can of course kit-out enemies individually with detailed placement but it may pay to look how the game engine is defining enemy equipment elsewhere for the rest of the game globally.



I didnt check if Burton is armorless too (didnt captured it so far) but the funny thing is that the beginning cities had armor and some equipment.
What is defined with "Good" & "Great" equipment? Is it only me or why iam expecting all elites in "endgame" to be equipped with NVGs etc? especially in expert & insane, maybe its caused by the difficulty?
Im pretty sure that the other cities had armored soldiers (mixed armor Kevlar to Spectra) and now before i captured Malino, the island (Pacchino?) and the sectors before Burton are armorless and the equip seems to get pretty worse with some expections. ( BTW is this upgrade tool for M4 only avaible in BR? & did you check malino elite baracks?)

The assertion in the button system was fixed some time ago in the 8187 development build. I'm not sure if it was fixed in Sevenfm's experimental exe as well.

@Infinet,

thank you for your post! You are showing "my" bug! thumbs up
Till this moment I thought I was dull.
I tried so many installations.

@all

I think the test of this bug don't take about 5 minutes. For
you can make it at every time within your current game in "Cambria" or "Meduna" or....
(except "die hard"?).
You have to try to assign only one new merc to your party and you will see the bug.

Would you be able to list the code that was fixed, Silver?

It was a small change in Interface Panels.cpp where someone forgot to unload a button image which made the game run out of IDs as far as I understand it.

Here is a code snippet with the fix:

@cbasd,

Daryl? I know him in VR as Darrel and waits in A 3?
In former versions of VR and Ja2 member of the HICKS?
I have tested this with my member SPIDER.
She talks to him and he comes with her.
No freeze!

Can you elaborate on what exactly you were doing before the freeze? Were you threatening him? trying to recruit him?

I tested this character Darrel again with my male character RUDOLF.
He couldn't engage him.
But no freeze!
I can write: Perhaps he must talk with a female character to follow your party.

By the way: DARREL would have in my ranking list 57,86 points; this means one place directly after SPARKY.

As to this list. You can see that they all have high skills in AGILITY, DEXTERITY and (nearly all) WISDOM.
It would be very interesting to make this mod with a few characters from AIM or MERC at the beginning and
then only with these characters on the way. They will ascend (is this verb right?) very quickly.

It was a direct speech after the marriage proposal. He said few words, and the sound is gone and game freezed. Raven was talking with him.

Something's busted there, that character should be Dick not a Daryl. Looks like some vanilla character data has crept back in.

I'd be rechecking your installation if no one else has noticed Dick being called Daryl, my game seems to be not having this issue.

Hmm, so there are other bugged characters like Agatha?(Pacos) in omerta hideout, IRA in San Mona and some guy with face of Manuel in Cambria
