Hi!

I'm investigating whether it's possible to get the original Urban Chaos (classic) working on JA2 Stracciatella (issue #1290 at it's GitHub page).

Having access to the source files for Urban Chaos would make things much easier, but I haven't been able to find them. I was hoping perhaps someone her at the Bear's Pit might be able to help out. Any other pointers are also welcome, of course. I personally do not have any experience with JA2 modding tools, and I have the feeling some of them might be useful here.

Thanks!

I think UC was made in the era of hex editing modding, before JA2 sources were released.

It is amazing how much was done with just hex editing. Do you know, or do you of anybody who know what edits have been done?

I found a bunch of JA2 modding tools here (can't link yet...):
https storage.rcs-rds.ro/links/4729f8d6-f44b-42b7-aa3e-e0ddc6deead6?path=%2FJA_2%2FModding_Tools

Which one of these could be useful in reverse-engineering the changes made in UC?

EDIT: UC-utils.rar in that directory collects a couple of tools that could be useful. The enclosed readme gives a handy overview of what each tool's purpose is.

I have had some luck with the "JA2 Item Editor". It can open the JA2_UC.exe
