I found early on in the game the to-hit ratio is pretty low with most low to mid level mercs, especially with basic guns, but things improve with more skilled mercs and better weaponry, especially those rifles that make use of multiple aiming clicks. I found mercs with the Machine-gunner trait invaluable too as most other mercs have poor results in auto fire, even those with the Auto Weapons trait. However this appears to be a 1.13 factor rather than a specific Vengeance characteristic.

Heyas people happy

So, i am trying to give the newest VA a try but i am running into obstacles.

1) Improved Aim Levels is off and so is the Dynamic Aiming Levels. Still, Grandee and Reaper that are full blown snipers, can't fill the ChanceToHit bar to 100% even at 60 meters, 30 or so tiles and miss half of the time. Forget about the others, such as Gus. The game feels like it's running on NCTH and it looks like it's been hardcoded, because no matter of what i am trying, nothing changes. Also, there is no CTH Constants in the VR Data folder. I was under the impression that VR supports OCTH only. Speaking of which, found a new option NEW_OCTH_CODE, tried with it off and on. No changes.

2) Scope, with her 100% condition CZ 700, is trying to fire it for the very first time and it jammed. Her mechanical is low but you'd expect a marksman to keep her sniper rifle in top condition at all times. Speaking of which, i did turn the LESS_JAMS option Off, yet it doesn't seem to work.

3) I've set the option to show the merc's name in different colors, according to how visible or hidden they are. It used to work in the 1.13 VR INI.Opttions in an older version but not in the VA Options, now,in this version, it doesn't work at all. It seems that a lot of the JA2 Options and on the INI.Editor don't seem to work at all. My other games, DL and AV work fine and i am very happy with them happy

4) Can anyone please remind me, how to make the visibility over tall grass better ? There is an option somewhere but i have forgotten where it is, i wrote down something about TREE EFFECTIVENESS but that is not it.

5)LOADSCREEN_STRETCH_MODE. How do i get rid of it ? It has also affected all of my other JA2 games that are on the same drive but in different folders, like a virus. I like the 1024 x 768 resolution. I did try as high as 1920x 10b0, at which point i see no black vertical bars on the sides but everything is so small that i am straining my eyes in order to read the text.

I didn't change/rename the game exe because last time i tried it, i've had me that SLF problem that i've mentioned. Just installed the Vengeance_Reloaded_Better_New_Year_Beta_01.01.2021_v7609_English_Full, over a fresh JA2 Installation. No SLF problem though.

Any hints/advice is always welcomed and appreciated. It's an awesome mod and in some older version i got pretty far but lost it due to pc reset. I try to remain positive but i am losing my enthusiasm a bit, I REALLY wanted to play VR.

Short of time, but in regard to 2. if I understand the terminology correct you should have;

LESS_JAMS = TRUE in your Ja2_Options.ini (in the Data_Vengeance folder)

Personally by my experience this should be set to TRUE by default to be honest, as jams are very common earlier in the game with less well-maintained guns, though Scope must have really been unlucky in her first shot going by your experience.

I am having this little problem with my new installation of VR, the version i used before the pc setup and it was working great.

RUNTIME ERROR
PRESS<ESC> TO EXIT

File : Init.cpp
Init : 908
Function : LoadExternalGameplayData
MercProfiles.xml

File :Init.cpp
Line :1486
Function : InitializeJA2
Loading external data failed

Can anyone explain what is causing this and how to fix it ? Thank you in advance, all of my research came back fruitless.

Update : Found this : Editing Items.xml causes Runtime Error[message #350361] on my search. Someone is suggesting to "Or do an auto xml syntax check with notepad ++. ;)" and according to the original message author, it solved the problem. How can i run this auto xml syntax check on the Notepad++ ? I can't find such option on it. A little guidance please happy

Well, what do you know, i think i sorted it out, some trial and error involved. I'll see if it runs ok and report back.

What's the use of the Power Station? Is it just to pickup Eagle? I can't train militia there and the enemy immediately takes it back.

Pretty much, I don't think there's any quests or local loyalty bonuses to be had there, though it might have some facilities you can use, mainly on the engineering/mechanical side.
