Vengeance: Reloaded German Translation
Sun, 19 November 2023 13:04
VENGEANCE: RELOADED German Translation Project
Vengeance 1.13 Reloaded |
Since i am an old fan of JA2 and i love the german translation of the game i collected some necessary files to convert Vengeance Reloaded as much as possible into german.
I also did some small translations of the facility-type descriptions, sector names and i converted some audio files to get the german voice of latest official 1.13 MERCs into the mod.
More translations are planed, if i find time for it.
For playing VR in german you currently need to do the following steps:
1.) Download original JA2 Classic game files from steam or somewhere else.
2.) Download latest 1.13 Update files from github and copy them into the JA2 game folder (overwrite existing files):
3.) Download the latest german language files for v.1.13 from github and copy them into the JA2 game folder (overwrite existing files):
4.) Download latest Vengeance Reloaded files from github and copy them into the JA2 game folder (overwrite existing files):
5.) Download latest JA2_Vengeance_DE.exe from github and copy it into the game folder:
6.) Download the following files from github and copy all of them into the game folder and overwrite existing files:
7.) Copy latest JA2_Vengeance_DE.exe from github into the game folder and overwrite the existing one.
8.) Run JA2_Vengeance_DE.exe!
a.] To get JA2 VR working with latest v. 1.13 release from github, you need an older DynamicRestrictions.xml file and copy it into the "\Data-1.13\TableData\Map\" folder. This file is already included in my conversion zip or just download it from here:
b.] If you just wanne play normal JA2 1.13 open the INI Editor.exe inside of the JA2 folder and change the selected JA2 v.1.13 Mod from vfs_config.Vengeance.ini to any other ini like vfs_config.JA2113.ini.
For this you also need a normal ja2.exe. I provide a working one here: "https://mega.nz/file/mZ5UGARY#sRXvZ9A0d5nISRzQBcmAse-DraEkbWkSDJIYrm6wsZ0"
a.] Vengeance Reloaded exclusive NPCs and MERCs are still in english. I will translate them in future as well, if i find time for it.
Credits go again to Hawkeye & anv for providing the german exe file and of course keeping the JA2 and Vengeance Reloaded alive!
Drop Backpack bug
Sun, 05 November 2023 21:04
v1.13 Solutions,Tips & Spoilers |
I encountered a bug with Drop backpack hotkey not working.
What happened is:
I dropped the backpacks using hotkey. Then I got slaughtered and decided to surrender.
As a result of "surrender" action, Manuel ald Dimitry escaped, 3 other mercs got captured.
After this point, SHIFT+B hotkey stopped working.
I thought that those backpacks are somehow tied to captured mercs and hotkey is trying to collect dropped backpacks.
After some time I cleared the sector and manually picked up all the backpacks that were left on floor (they had names or assigned mercs on them) hoping that this will "free" the hotkey, but apparently this did not help.
Another way is to try to free the captured mercs, maybe this will help, but I cant do this in a reasonable timeframe and will have to suffer to many battles without automatically dropping and picking up the backpacks.
Any suggestions? Playing without this hotkey is a real pain in the @#$.
Okay, I figured it out partially. If you press CTRL+V and press button to drop B/P, then the hotkey will work to pick them up, but it will still not work after that.

original JA2 plus MFM
only novice difficulty for the sake of doing the video, on higher difficulty things can get more intense
since it's a video, it will be a huge spoiler - don't watch if you want to get surprised

An Abundance of Options (Which is a GOOD thing!)
Tue, 03 October 2023 01:02
Ok so, after realizing there were multiple versions of 1.13 and then after that, realizing and finding out there were multiple different "mods" of the 1.13 mod i decided to go about getting all of these mods installed! After much trial and error and picking up bits and pieces from wherever i could find them, i have managed to get Urban Chaos, Vengeance Reloaded and Arulco Revisited installed under 7609 and i'm actually blown away by how good these all look, especially the laptop on Vengeance Reloaded with the different conflicts listed that's a real nice touch! It all looks top notch man and can't wait to get stuck in!! If anyone has any recommendations of what to try first i would be grateful to hear anyone's thoughts, i am not what you would consider a "hardcore" player but i can definitely hold my own on 1.13 experienced and i am happy with that difficulty.
v1.13 General Gameplay Talk |
I currently use OCTH, although i am sure i will make the switchover further down the line which just brings me to a question if i may, on Vengeance Reloaded it seems there is no option to play with OCTH (there is no option on the game start screen and its not in the INI either) so i was just wondering what system it uses or if there is indeed a way to change it? Any insight appreciated!
Lastly i just wanted to say that 1.13 is truly a joy to play and i urge anyone who was put off by the sheer magnitude of options to just persevere with it and tweak it to your liking, it takes alot of time but its ultimately
well worth it in the end! (+)

Firstly i just wanted to tip my hat to everyone involved with 1.13 you guys are the best! All the new gear is top notch as my man Reaper would say..
v1.13 INI Customisation and Help |
I used to truly suck at Jagged Alliance when it came out when i was nothing more than a teenager but there was a certain charm about it and its concept that made me fall in love with it. Back in the day i could only take Drassen and after that i was overwhelmed and didn't know wtf to do and without a strategy i was always left stumped on what to do next. Well fast forward a couple of decades to 2020 and i find myself with all the time in the world after some idiot went through a red light when i was on my motorbike and almost left me a paraplegic, i decided to sink my teeth into Jagged Alliance 2 and really get to grips with it once and for all.. In the 3 years that followed i have managed to master the vanilla campaign on high difficulty and am just about to complete the fantastic 1.13 mod on experienced difficulty so i now consider myself a JA2 veteran haha.. The 1.13 mod and its absolute abundance of new gear has made me a very happy man i absolutely love it so thankyou to those who have worked on it i am very grateful.
I would very much like to start a playthrough where i can make San Mona my base of operations and if anybody knows a way to implement it so Bobby Ray's deliveries can be made to San Mona, i would be most grateful if you could share the way to do it or if there is a specific INI option to look out for
AIM and MERC Biographies
Modifying Biographies; Wed, 13 September 2023 20:24
Is it possible to modify the biography of an AIM or MERC character? I know how to edit MercProfiles.xml, but I can't find any way to edit the biography of a character to "fit" their new traits.

Aiming burst penalty INI setting
Do I still need to set this to 1 in 2023?; Tue, 12 September 2023 22:10
Hi, I want to play AI + Arulco Revisited + Arulco Folding Stock. In the FAQ, this was written by Wil473 in 2011.
"Inadvisable to Change - NCTH Balance already accounts for this"
Its 2023 and I am trying to play AI + AR + AFS from the modpack, I will be playing with OCTH. Can I let the Aiming Burst Penalty be default 2 instead of 1? He says NCTH will fix the balance but I wont be using NCTH. I dont know what should I do, I want to play the mod as intended but I dont want to make radical gameplay changes from standard 1.13, I prefer the Aiming Burst at 2 rather than 1.

Chalice of Chance
Where is it? It is not in sector L12 as in Vanilla; Fri, 08 September 2023 06:14
I have taken over Molino (formerly Balime), and there is NO Museum in sector L12 as is in the Vanilla version. No museum means no Chalice of Chance, no Chalice of Chance means no hope of getting loyalty up to 20%. Help please.
