Can I change the number of Merc's available from 24 to 28 in mid game? I'm getting an error when trying to do so with the INI editor. Thanks

I had a discussion with SpaceViking about that, my proposal was that you should always be allowed to increase the number of available slots, but currently the code can't handle mid game changes.

Yah Cribbie, happend to me too, had a discussion with SpaceViking as a result, asked why the code isn't written to handle increases in mercs, seems natural at least to me, all the other INI settings can be changed mid game except number of mercs.

I'm really quite bummed. I spent a lot of time this past week gathering guns, LBE gear, helmets, etc to outfit four more merc's. I had them picked out. Malice, Red, Fox, and Dr. Q. Didn't go the easy way and order stuff from Bobby Ray's. Strictly Tony's inventory and stuff picked up after battles. I've got too much time invested in my current 24 to let anyone go now, like, Flo is at 93 marksmanship. Like I wrote earlier, I wish I had known before this current game.

Then just open the map editor and put all the stuff you gathered on map and start a new game. You might lose the stats but at least you get all the stuff back.
