I've been searching for a way to do the following, and I'm hoping that someone here could help...

(1.) Backup the file that holds the custom-made mercs

(2.) Alter the color of the tracer rounds to a carmine-red hue.

Here's a catch all thread for those wanting something not applicable to any of the other topics.

If you mean your IMPs, they are stored in Profiles\UserProfile_Vengeance in .dat2 files, so you can store them anywhere if needed then copy back into profile and enter name instead of IMP code to reuse them.

Only possible by modifying source code, by removing light for tracers and repainting second frame of bull.sti from shadow to red tracer, like here:

That looks GREAT!

Would you happen to have that already-altered code and graphics file handy, and be willing to share it, so that it's easy to copy/paste into the file structure so that we too could have red tracers?

I don't want to sound too picky here, but if you are able/willing to modify the red-carmine tracer, could you make its color more intense and its length shorter? Maybe use this video as a resource...

I'm happy to try modifying the tracer rounds myself, but I've done extensive searches to find a tutorial, and have found nothing.

Any advice? I'd be happy to also modify its appearance if someone who has the graphic for it available, and could post it here.

@Kyle check Red Tracers folder on my google drive.
If you update your VR with new Ja2_Vengeance.exe, Ja2_Options.INI and BULL.STI, you will be able to use new options:
RED_TRACER to enable red tracers (needs REALISTIC_TRACERS > 0)
TRACER_LIGHT to disable light for tracers

Also options for realistic tracers are changed to allow each bullet in tracer magazine to be tracer, and for better balance:
REALISTIC_TRACERS = 1
NUM_BULLETS_PER_TRACER 	= 1
CTH_BUMP_PER_TRACER 	= 4
MIN_RANGE_FOR_TRACER	= 1
