Hi all,

a couple of issues/questions related to the different install possibilities listed in the OP:

1. attempting to launch UC (w/ Kitty's 7609 SCI + Urban Chaos-1.13 v4.50 Full 20141222 + Data-UC) with the latest JA2+AI.exe (ja2_7609en+AI_r2349) gives me a runtime error (Assertion Failure [Line 329 in fileStrategic Movement Costs.cpp] Incorrect traversal data 'SOUTH' for sector row=8 column=9 in MovementCost.xml). I must have done something wrong in the install process but I can't find what I've done wrong exactly. Launching UC with the regular ja2.exe doesn't give me that runtime error.

2. how would I go about if I wanted to shift UC mercs stats back to their vanilla stats? I always hated those stat changes. Not a huge deal though, I can live with them.

3. how can I change Arulco Revisited music and background screens back to vanilla ones? Not a big fan of the new ones. Once again, not a huge deal, it's just cosmetic (and down to personal preferences ofc).

1. This error needs to be fixed in XML. My 7609 modpack has UC version that should work with +AI, you can take needed file from there. Compare xml file with winmerge if needed.
2. Check Data-UC-113\TableData\MercProfiles.xml, it's all there, you should be able to copy+paste stats for needed mercs from stock 1.13, just don't change anything mod related like sector placement for NPCs.
3. Go to Data-AR\Music, rename or delete files, the game will use default music from Data\Music.slf
Backgrounds are in Data-AR\Interface\OptionsScreenBackground*.sti and Data-AR\Loadscreens

Thanks for the (very) quick reply!

1. I need to extract the Mods\Data-UC113.7z from your modpack and then get the XML, is that correct? But which XML are you talking about (or are there several I need to check)?

2. thanks.

3. done, thanks! Also got rid of the new main menu background.

Yes, take the file from 7z archive and use it to fix xml bug in your installation.
Since your error mentions MovementCost.xml, this is the file I would try to fix.

I downloaded the Modpack from Seven.
1)How can I play UC113? I just can select vfs.config.UC. Is this the right one? When yes, how can I change the ini. settings like Train Elite Militia or Max IMP Skill points?
2)And another question. What is the Level Progression? I think I read someting about the weapons progression. Can I change there something special or is it just to use with no aditional possible changes fot its setting?
3)Are there any recommendations regarding the drop all settings or the supported NCTH setting(LP, UC?) for each mod?
And sorry for the not perfect english.....

1. Ja2.ini says:
; JA2 1.13 Urban Chaos
VFS_CONFIG_INI = vfs_config.UC.ini
You can change ini settings in data-1.13, mod folder and Data-User (which has highest priority).
2. What is the Level Progression? Do you have a screenshot or something.
3. Drop all will quickly give you better weapons and equipment but later you will have thousands of items in sectors and it kind of ruins game item availability balance since you have too much and too early. I would not recommend it unless you clearly know what you do.
The mods are expected to play with default NCTH setting, there are also some useful tweaks in CTHConstants.ini in Data-User.

1)I already played some mods an know some things like how to change settings with the ini editor. But when I select the vfs.config.UC in the ini editor there is no ini file where i can change settings for UC. I already changed for each ini file from the ini editor the settings for IMP_MAX_ATTRIBUTE but I can´t set the IMP Point in the game above the standard 85 for UC. So I don´t know how to change these setting for UC. For other mods it works.

2) For example the mod AR+LP which is to chose from the ini editor.

I don´t know how to post screenshot. I can´t just copy it in. If you could tell me how to I could post some screeenshots.

To be honest, I have no idea what that Jenkins server thing is.

All I know is that, when I click on the link (I think it is link, at least) fort he latest stable build (message, I assume, marked as #784) I get the link to download some file that has word unstable in it.
It has been some 10 years since I had installed the new version of 1.13,but I think I'll stick with that 7zip place.

It's just an automated setup that bundles newest gameDir and .exe revisions together so it doesn't have to be done manually. The latest stable build in there means the latest build that didn't give errors upon building, it doesn't mean the old "stable" JA2 build. You'll usually want to download the latest successful artifact from there, unless you're after a specific revision.

The "unstable" on the filename does refer to the development trunk of 1.13, and yeah it's a bit unfortunate how easily those two can be mixed up.

Changed my update frequency for my SCI, instead of "once per month" it's now "every now and then".

In case some needs xp-compatible exe and mine are not around, use the Jenkins SCI and replace the exe with the exe provided by seven (see a few post above).

Is the +AI mod/functionality included in the latest Jenkins/Kitty SCI builds? If not, is it compatible and safe to use with the latest builds?
If so, where would I get the latest files for this?

Take a look at the very first post of this "How-to...", under "Getting 7609+AI" you'll find the link "Experimental Project 7". This will lead you to descriptions by author and downloadlink for the exe.

You'll need the 7609-version of 1.13 and replace the exe coming with 7609 with the improved one.

Ok, since your location says germany, I'll try to explain in german as well:

Neh, geht nicht mit den neuseten Versionen zusammen. +AI ist für die 7609-version von 1.13 gedacht. Ganz am Anfang von dem "How-to..." finden sich ein paar links und Beschreibungen dazu. Unter "Getting 7609+AI" ist ein link zu Beschreibungen vom Author (Experimental Project 7), da ist auch ein downloadlink für die neueste +AI-exe.

Was man braucht ist also erstmal die 7609-version von 1.13, downloadlinks dazu auch ganz am Anfang. Die exe da drin muss man mit der +AI-exe ersetzen.

Um das ganze Potential auszuschöpfen, würde ich aber empfehlen den 7609-modpack von seven runterzuladen, der enthält zusätzlich ein paar feine goodies in den Ordnern (extra sounds, etc)und das ist einfach der bequemste Weg alle mods die es für 7609 gibt auszuprobieren.
Und man ahnt es,auch dazu gibts die downloadlinks am Anfang, dritter Post. Die +AI-exe wird ständig verbessert, also immer mal nachschauen, ob seven (der author) eine aktuellere parat hat (der link unter Experimental Project 7).

I put down one downloadsource (Kittyland). It's obsolete, because if you need XP-compabilty and UB and MapEditor, the polish forum provides SCI exactly for that already (link at first post). UB and MapEditor can also be compiled by anyone following the Guide (link in my signature). XP-compabilty can also be reached when replacing exe coming with Jenkins SCI (link in first post) with the one seven usually provides on his google-drive (see link in his signature).

Nice job with the guide, Kitty. It's great.

It seems that the English versions of Seven's 7609+AI and modpacks are no longer available, though. Probably worth mentioning in the guide itself.

Updated guide. Didn't add direct links cause those are probably prone to change anyway.
