Hi All,

I've also created a hireable Mike that you can download right away. This small mod is intended for the v1.13 version. Check it out at the site I created: A hireable Mike for Jagged Alliance 2 v1.13

I hope you'll like it and I'd also welcome comments. The details are on the linked page. And if you like it, please spread the word (not the file, please, it is available free of charge from my site).

Nice work!

I have 2 suggestions:
1.) No need to replace an existing merc. With current 1.13 version you can add additional mercs to AIM or MERC
2.) I have German speech files for MIKE from JA1 & DG. Can you also make a German Version of your MIKE mod?

Hi,

I'm glad people started to find the mod. Any ideas where else I should post it on the forums? Also can you give me a link with info about how to add new mercs? It would come in handy as I also want to make Mike and Tex available in Urban Chaos.

As for the German version, unfortunately a simple translation would not be possible as I edited some of the wave files with an editor (that mainly means I mixed them). Only someone with great knowledge of German could do the same in that language, but I don't speak German. Also I guess the texts are a bit different in German, so I think totally new lines would be necessary to fit in the game. So the idea is good, but unfortunately you'll have to find someone who speaks German and is dedicated enough. Maybe the job is easier now that I created an English example.

Best regards, mihand78

Quick off topic here, Tex is already available in UC 1.13, unsure whether he is also available in normal UC

Wow thank you, that was as warm as it was quick!

Now I'm thinking of an easy job making Mike available in Urban Chaos. I've just downloaded it and seen some other JA1/DG character's faces there converted to fit in JA2. As the faces are ready, now it would only require the same wave editor work to make them into PCs. I might do some of them later if there is a need for this, but it takes some time to do a good job, so it might really be a bit later.

By the way, do you know which missing old characters are the most wanted? Is there a post about this?

I'm new to UC. I've just downloaded it and played with it for about an hour. I haven't seen Tex there, Iggy took his place in M.E.R.C. How can I play with him?

Tex is found in a town, he is an npc that will join you. More than this is a spoiler.

Guys, I am terribly, terribly, terribly sorry to disappear like that.. Yet, in my defense, better late than never. Here is the link to the patch so anyone who wants to try out my patch and hire Mike could get it.

Quote:
"While undergoing negotiations for yet another pay increase, Mike suddenly withdrew from the discussion when he was informed many employers had already complained about his exaggerated rates. His current whereabouts are unknown, just like pretty much everything else about him. The last correspondence received by this office, postmarked in a small country whose name escapes us, contained threats we'd rather not recall." - Jagged Alliance 2 Alumni gallery.
Mike can be spoken to in Jagged Alliance 2 when he is encountered as an enemy. If an AIM merc who is familiar with enough with Mike gets close enough, you can talk to Mike and (if the merc's leadership is high enough) find out his motivations for leaving AIM and hiring on with Deidranna, along with the usual threats.

Mike's intentions evidently are related to him believing Deidranna to be the "winning side" in the conflict. Most A.I.M. mercs, despite being mercenaries, are ironically not quite as "mercenary", and find his perspective disgusting on moral grounds, due to Deidranna's lack of regard for human rights.

Can be hired in the 1.13 mod. The player will need characters with high leadership like Miguel to hire him when he is beaten to Critical state.

Does he say that? I was trying to recall and don't remember anything about the "winning side". I remember he says "It was never about the glory for me - it's about money" and I think that he "doesn't care which side he works for".

i just noticed that the last 2 chapters are the same.
If memory serves right, either he said/or was mentioned, that Mike liked to fight for the winning side and as we all know, Mike is all about money and nothing else. Along those lines, Deidranna was keeping Arulco in an iron grip for years, so he figured he'd be in her employ for a long time, making lots of money.

Just found these phrases from Ivan here:
"Я - лучший! Когда Кеннеди был убит, Майку было девять лет. Майк - лгун!" (I'm the best! When Kennedy got killed, Mike was only nine. Mike is a liar!) - on call, Deadly Games
"Майка переоценили. Его досье - сплошной обман." (Mike is overrated. His dossier is a complete fraud.) - on call, Deadly Games

I didn't remember those (but then again I don't think I ever hired Ivan and only heard him speak when my friend did), but it's an interesting spin happy I just love the ambiguity of all the info one gets on mercs in JA - one can derive own conclusions and nothing is certain. I think it's the best writing ever done for a game.

P.S. I think Mike looks older than what Ivan claims - not buying it. big grin
