Hi Guys,

I'm new here, I have a steam version of JA2 1.13 how do I go about installing this mod. I followed the steps given (copied the Jan 15th 2020 version and then extracted the DMS and clicked Ja2_r8734.
Got an error saying "windowed mode requires a color depth of 16bpp", searched for a fix on YouTube as I have a 64 bit windows 10 PC. While trying to fix it says Ja2_r8734.exe is a 32 bit file.

Any computer savvy folks that can help me out here thanks.

Regards,
Satyam

Try setting SCREEN_MODE_WINDOWED = 0 in Ja2.ini, also check if you have some win10 compatibility DLLs which could force windowed mode or something like that.

What a great mod! Just that old habits are hard to break. Deep in my bones was the knowledge that Meduna and it's outskirts is a bad place and that in the beginning there may be problems with money. So as the first thing I went via Balime to Alma to get me some steady income. Had I only known how many volunteering (but mostly useless) friends Deidrana has and how much money they have donated in all kinds on boxes... But I've got me a new dynamic duo: Mike and Razor soundlessly cleaning woods and swamps at night.
Sly left on the second day in the middle of a battle, it's OK, just that he took with him my only silent sniper rifle.
Still I have a little problem. When Bobby Ray sends me 4.7 ammo for HK G11, the whole box disappears when I try to reload the gun. I can do without it, but maybe there is some bigger bug behind it.

Long time modder, who is no longer part of the Bear's pit community. He still works on his own projects, but doesn't post here. He is notable for the original mod of 'Vengeance' 'Renegade Republik' and 'Fight for Freedom' among others.
what have you done to him? not sure

Check sector inventory, he has a nasty vest that takes pretty much nothing good.

if/when somebody tweaks this mod a bit - in sector J16 you can enter not only through the ambush zone but also from SW corner - just that you can not move, you see nobody, still the enemy sees you and starts shooting. and: enemy can spawn in the northern (higher) zone of the sector where you can not hit him or get to him. no bid deal of course: you can take prisoners or retreat, return and use automatic resolve.

News just in;

We made some further progress on DSM in the past couple of months. After a pleasant playthrough, I'm uploading an update.

https://easyupload.io/h2h410

The updates includes many new custom maps and various tweaks/fixes. One thing to note is that some RPC's were moved, most notably Tony and Hans are now available earlier in the game.

Please test if it all runs fine if you just extract the contents of the 7zip archive over the existing DSM install (same as always). A new game should be started.

If playing on Win10, run Ja2_r8734_68a212bb.exe as administrator and in compatibility mode with win xp sp3 as well as reduced colours mode (16bit).
