Thx a lot for the feedback. nice to hear you like it.

You can get ja2 vengeance here http://xrmb2.net/area/area.php?location=dwnmds2 broken old link, if you find a new one post it here!

this is also the version that *should* support the english patches. it's bigger than NK though, and it has more custom characters

If you liked NK and finished it, you may want to have another shot at JA2 Vengeance.

I don't think there are guides or such around about vengeance and NK. you may find some info searching this very thread here, other than that, there's little discussion/ feedback on the Vengeance series in English around.

do you have a saved game before talking to dynamo?

i'm pretty sure i left dynamo unchanged so it *should* be possible to hire him.
you may send the savegame to me then.

btw are you playing vengeance NK or ja2 vengeance? if you don't know off hand, you can tell by the guns... ever encountered an FMK-3?

Does the 800x600 resolution patch work with Vengeance?

Hmmm. I'm jumping the gun a bit. I can't get this game to work (goes to a screen with crossed swords then back to the desktop). I'm running XP and have the original version of JA2, patched it to 1.06, unzipped the Vengeance file in the JA2 folder, did the same with the Vengeance English patch. Are there any other files I need?

Thanks

the english patch doesn't change everything

the voices will all remain german, but might have english subtitles (not all, but certainly those relevant fro the story)

the mod is easily playable even if you don't understand any german. If you've played normal ja2 before, you can play ja2 vengeance as well

Thanks for reply, did some play and yeah i noticed that some of the dialogues (with npcs) are in english aswell in german.
So far i enjoy the new maps and the combat balance is great too. Took me some time to get used to it after 1.13 Smile
Now to find some spoilers here to not leave anything important behind Smile

I was just looking into the Mod, just wondering what is the difference between Vengance NK and Vengance?
Wich one support the english patch?
And, last of all what kind of version of JA2 Classic does it support, 1.06 or 1,07? etc.

NK is basicly the same as normal ja2 vengeance just without the "kiddie soldiers"

some less quests, some different guns...

the english patch was made for the full version i think.

vengeance was developed on ja2 1.02 German. It comes with it's own proprietary exe so the ja2 version you have shouldn't make much of a difference, however if you run an english version of ja2, which i assume you do, then you have to follow the install instructions on the first pages of this thread where the guys found out how to run vengeance over english versions of ja2

Well I tried it all, and still does not work... All Ive got is CTD, There is no difference between the classic JA2 v 1.3 plain vanilla install i have and my JA2 Gold v 1.12, they both react the same to the Mod with CTD. My both installations is in English, and yes I tried patching up the v 1.3 to 1.06, even 1.07. Nothing worked. I have scrolled thru the pages all night, trying to figure it out reading the innstalation guides that follows the Mod, still nothin. This Mod is simply not made for me and my version of JA2/ Gold edition. Really bad, just to bad... Sad

Hello all of you.
I'm in sector M2 now, I've killed all enemies in the sector and wanted to make my way trough that teleport near the helicopter. But the way to it is full with undetectable bombs.
Did someone notices that? Or is there any possibility to avoid that?
Thanks for any hint.

i think those mines are deliberately placed to keep you away from the chopper Wink

but my memory... is questionable. I think you can reach that teleport from a different place later in the game

The most captivant MOD that I've played yet. Nice job WOODY. I played it without any interruption. It was really captivant.
Any other MOD(in the kind) that you can recommand me?
I've already played these:
DL, Shaby Job, UC, UB.

very glad you enjoyed it. i remember having a lot of fun with it too.

if you liked ja2 vengeance, i think i can also recommend the back to business mod for ja2 UB which is in german and has fantastic mapping and a large new area and new story.

then there are also biohazard and bloody grounds, german(?) again both of them which i have played and both have nice features (you may see screenshots and read feature list to decide what you like... most of these mods have some very nice gems somewhere in them.)

in english, the vietnam SOG mod is many people's favourite (again for unfinished business)

then more recently, there were the militia factions mod and the reconquista mod, you can find info for those mods in this forum section.


i would mention 1.13 and renegade republic only now after those above. It is because 1.13 based mods can be played in higher resolutions, and it is hard for many players to go back to 640x480 once they've see then high res versions.

thus my advice, check out those mods above, maybe speed-read some forum threads about them (ja2 basis forum has vast info for the german mods) and pick what you like.

only afterwards test 1.13 and renegade republic (RR is my mod and has some similarities to ja2 vengeace, so maybe you'll like that too)

MikeTG - look in this section of the forum for the thread "JA2 Back to Business is Out Now," by Sinclair,13 Jan 08. (I found it on page 2.) If you go all the way back to Sinclair's first post, you can find the download site, Gamingo, which apparently still works. Be sure to read all the posts in the B2B thread.

i'm getting complaints that vengeance-1.13 cannot be downloaded anywhere due to all hosting sites being down (temporarily or not)

could somebody host a copy of vengeance-1.13 on reliable web space? that'd be cool

try retrieving a copy from hoenier's site, if it's down, maybe this temporary link

http://rapidshare.com/files/306141672/vengeance-1.13_install .rar.html File not found, if you have an updated link please post it here!

O.K., big excitement here as I got the gog.com version of JA2 installed and upgraded it to 1.13 with no problems.
Now, What I want is to get vengeance running so installed a second, fresh version of JA2, patched it to 1.06 and if I have it right what I need to do now is:

1) Install 1.13
2) extract the vengeance 1.13 file found at the megaupload link above.

Is that all there is to it?

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.

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.
