Just noticed today that a guy called Darius Kazemi wrote a book about the development of Jagged Alliance 2.
It looks intersting. Apparently, it all started with the manufacter of souvenir spoons. Who would have thought that.
I would post a link, but the forum software won't let me cheeky

You need to have made 10 posts before forum will accept links from you. The above is your #9. There two possibilities:

- post the link without the protocol (http://) part, it won't convert to clickable link but remain in plain text instead, people then would need to copy and paste the link manually;

- make another post anywhere on the forum, then post the link here. That's a bit awkward way to circumvent anti-spam feature, but since you are only one post short it tempting.

The modders are always happy when you leave some kind words on their release topics ;) ... just try not to pick the oldest cheeky
Or do what Enneagon says and cheat the parser.

Very interesting! Must be because I love this game. Just found an excerpt of the book at VICE's Motherboard:

Jagged Alliance is filmed in front of a live studio audience.

I can see the books were/are obviously made with a tight budget but still, those front covers... Probably some of the worst I've ever seen.
