Well my attempt was a flop. I had clean install of JA2 (the gog.com version) which I patched to 1.06 and installed 1.13 on top of that. I got the vengeance 1.13 zip and extracted it to the root JA2 and while the vengeance files all seem to be there the game is unchanged from a normal 1.13 When I clicked on the various JA2 icons in the vengeance file I get an error message that various dll files are missing. Any ideas about fixing the situation are welcome.

Hello Flettner,

Yes, the install of Vengeance-1.13 is a little bit tricky, especially for the English users. I think I could build a "Single Click Installer" for Scorpion's mod with some English translations like edited MERCBIOS.EDT, EMAIL.EDT and such small things, but this SCI would base on an older v1.13 build, because the only English Vengeance-1.13 EXE is Space Viking's modified "Many Mercs EXE B007c" from 09.12.2008. That means also no current features like HAM, STOMP or NAS, but including EDB, 100AP and the New Inventory of course!

@ all: Please let me know whether you are interested in playing an older Vengeance-1.13 build?!


Best regards; Schein

Thank you for the reply. I would be willing to play an older version since from what i've read vengeance is one of the better mods that is out. I am a bit of an idiot when it comes to computer stuff but i'd be happy to try and make it work.

Fine! I hope you are not the only one Wink Well, sometimes when you start with something little it can result in "more" Smile

OK, I got a starting base of JA2 1.13 2651exe SVN@1104 installed. Unzipped the vengeance 1.13 zip into the root file for JA2 and spent a while looking for without finding the GERMAN.SLF file, anything called j13_b3 fix or a file called anything like MERCEDT fix which is when I stopped. Where do find those files? They don't seem to be part of the vengeance 1.13 zip (I checked) so I don't know how to proceed.

Hello Flettner,

Oh no! My previous posting was not meant as install instruction! That is the current translation status for the Vengeance-1.13 Single Click Installer. It helps me to remember what I've done so far and what there is still to do. If someone could help me with the translation for the eleven remaining .edt files like Dieter before (Thank you! Smile ) there is a good chance I can upload this SCI in the next week (?).

If you can not wait and want to play it in German please look here to get the necessary files:

I hate to sound whiny because I can see that this is a carefully and well made mod but some things bother me:

- It appears that this mod uses a very old version of 1.13, you can't switch show cover/show enemy view on and you cannot see chance to hit when you fire full auto. This is a pretty major inconvenience to me because I am so used to these tools that its almost crippling to play without it.
- There's a lot of German in game (even with the English patch) it feels like im missing something out.

the problem is the exe-hacking, you simply can't play it with a newer 1.13 built, btw this mod was written vor 1.07 originally (it was the far better version).

The English translation is indeed underway including a 1.13 version. This project has jokingly been coined 'Vengeance Reloaded' which will also include some new graphics, never before seen characters and a general updating of the entire game to bring it up to date.

Development discussions have been moved to a closed forum for now, but some news is posted on the Vengeance English translation thread on here.

Still in development more like.

Most if not all English translation has been done, just requiring recording of a handful more voices in English, cleaning up some bug ridden maps and integrating new tilesets. A new SCI is on the cards once this is done, but progress is very slow at the moment.

Recently finished Vengeance (or should that be Wengeance?) for the first time. Loved it. No problem with the language and recruited all the added rpc's I think. Great fun. Ilja Dolvitch wins character of the mod. "God gives and me? I take away!" Rocking stuff. Love playing maps I've never played before for that how too? feeling. Deep in B2B VM now. Keep on modding.

We're still working hard on getting a workable Beta, as well as adding new content so it's unlikely this will be ready by the end of the year.

Best to check in some time in 2014. (God, 2014 sounds like something from Tron!)

Anyone know how to finish this Mod, Deidranna dead, almost alls sectors conquered but game did not end.

Aside from this, I enjoyed it very much. Will give a try on Vengeance 1.13 in due time.

Half a decade later and I thought I'd check on how this project is coming along. cheeky Haha I don't mean to make a point of the time passed aww , just very eager to play the mod. angel Is the English 1.13 version still alive or have so many obstacles made matters so bad that work on it is all but given up now? not sure I found the Google Code hub made in 2012 but would be lost in compiling anything of course. suprised Anyway, fingers crossed bumping this thread sparks life back into it and fingers crossed in general that we'll at last also be able to enjoy what seems like an epic piece of work. heart Cheers. happy

Vengeance: Reloaded is very much alive. We were hoping for a release in the new year (This year!) but due to team members career changes, personal tragedies, fire, famine and pestilence, and the fact 1.13 is a constant painful goalpost shifting marathon to keep up with the beta release is still some months away. No set date but the team are starting to lock down further developments and concentrate on bug fixing and getting a 'shippable' version out there...soon. angel
