Wasn't sure where to post this question. I've usually played JA2 using my disk whenever I had the itch to get back to the game, but lately, since it became available on steam I've been playing 1.13 v7609 there. My question is if I want to play a mod like Vengeance, Reloaded or try the current development build, can I do that through steam by just downloading the files and putting it the appropriate folders? Or must I do that outside of steam?

Late reply, but better late than never.

All mods are available outside of Steam as they are not commercially available products, so no, you cannot download them from Steam. You should be able to use your JA2 install from steam as a base, but will then need to install mods over the top of that (or another installation) with files available here at the Bears pit.

Adding to that, the Steam version of JA2 Wildfire comes with a "DLC" called "Jagged Alliance 2 Classic" that's actually a separate installation of vanilla JA2, which is a perfectly fine base for 1.13. It's often on sale (actually, it's on sale NOW) and usually cheaper than the other JA2 on steam, "Jagged Alliance 2 Gold".

I follow that. I actually purchased Wildfire + JA2 instead of JA2Gold by accident, but it's cheaper anyway. Also I no longer own by JA2Gold disk (the reason I bought JA2 on Steam), but I cracked a JA2Gold from the internet and the game runs like shit, very laggy, while the Wildfire ClassicJA2 DLC runs perfectly fine in my Windoes 10 even without any compatibility adaptation.



Born, play JA2, die, reload, die again, reload again.
