How to update V1.13[message #350335] Sat, 15 July 2017 03:14 Go to next message

Hey everyone.
I've recently got back into playing JA2. I of course downloaded V1.13 (an old 2014 stable release that was linked on a website somewhere) but thanks to the heli refuelling bug I'm looking to update the build I'm using to something after 7754 (I'm led to believe that's when it was fixed).
I tried downloading the release from Depri's Build Repository but it was just the executable and after moving it to the JA2 directory & running it I encountered a runtime error (Loading External Data Failed - Disease.xml). Am I doing something clearly wrong? I've never really played around with mods before, this is all knew to me...

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I've been playing this game since it came out and this is the closest I've been to ever finishing it >_<

Thanks again happy

For that big of a jump, you need to start with a clean JA2 and just drop my full SCI onto it. Links and explanations in my signature.

I kind of found a workaround for the heli refuelling bug, all you have to do is go to the options.ini and change alternative_helicopter_fuel_system to true. The helicopter should then refuel as normal. The only caveat is that you have to play with the alternative fuel system on permanently, which I haven't found to be a problem in the slightest.

Had the exact same problem as you btw - installed an old version without realising it and then ran into the heli refuel bug and looked at how to update but couldn't find a way so I used the above workaround instead.

Thanks for your quick replies guys.
I've done a fresh install with the latest SCI and holy crap it's different! Gonna start a new save and see how all these changes pan out.
It feels like a totally new game, thanks for all the hard work!
