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

Hey, newbie here.
I'm playing the mod and it's great, but I was wondering: is there a chance to play with the old movement system/shooting system? Guess I should modify the .ini file?

What do you exactly mean by old movement system/shooting system? Movement as in Action points? Shooting sytstem as in Chance to Hit?

Hello patta and welcome to the forum,

http://thepit.ja-galaxy-forum.com/index.php?t=msg&th=23256&goto=347913&#msg_347913

In your \Data-Vengeance folder of your VR game install you will find APBPConstants.ini.

In first entry of the [APConstants] change value 100 to 25 and save after that:

[APConstants]
;***********************************************************************
;* The maximum number of Action Points a merc may have. *
;* Should be 5x MAX_AP_CARRIED for game-balance purposes. *
;***********************************************************************
AP_MAXIMUM = 25 


Thats all. Much fun playing Vengeance: Reloaded Mod with old 25 AP system!


Best regards; Schein...

Thanks Schein, that's exactly what I meant. And yes, I wanted to change the Chance to Hit system, but I read that VR supports OCTH only, so...it's not a big deal anyway! Again, the mod is great, thank you so much for your work!

Ah, that's weird. Now I get a runtime error when I launch the mod: number of tilesets in code does not match data file. Weird, it worked perfectly fine last night.
