Hi All,

I have liberated everywhere apart from Balime and Meduna, and managed to find only 1 spring and 1 rod entire game. I simply need more rods and springs, no one seems to sell them and i cannot find them anywhere on the map. Can I do this externally?

As far as I am aware an item creation cheat does not exist, a duplication cheat does not exist either, and save games are binary. How am I going to get more of these?

Also there was supposed to be an item called "trigger-group" which I cannot find anywhere either.

Using the latest stable build of JA2 1.13.

Thanks

Rod and Spring are supposed to be rare items. You may find some on the map or randomly on enemy soldiers. If you don't play with "Drop All" the chance is even lower because the soldier may have one but doesn't drop it.
If you want more of them you could add them in cheat mode (lame cheeky ) or add them to a merchant or BR inventory. This would require XML editing (corresponding XML file in "NPCInventory" or "Items.xml" for BR).

Trigger Groups are Scifi items and will only show up if you have Scifi mode enabled at the start of the game. You could remove the <SciFi> tag from the item in Items.xml however, which makes them available in normal mode as well.

Just keep in mind that BR/merchant inventories take time to update. You'll have to wait a day or so before previously unavailable stuff may appear.

Thank you silversurfer! I modified items.xml and added them to BR. This is the second time you have saved my playthrough!

I have a non scifi game going with the 8589 build.

Can I just delete the Scifi tag on the trigger group or do I have to start a new game?

You can just delete the tag. Item modifications don't require a new game.
