Can somebody help me with something. I downloaded SOG this weekend and played it a bit. There was a "Readme" in the file I downloaded that told be to be sure and read the briefings. Also, at the main base the colonel told me that I should have been briefed on my mission.

Only trouble is that I cannot find anything that looks like a briefing. I have checked the laptop and all my e-mail, all I have in a recon report on Ricci Mining and some mail from Enrico that looks like some leftovers from UB. I think I did all I could in the first area, talked to the colonel and supply guy, got the radio, talked to the guy that looks like Yanni, etc. I recently flew into the first LZ and took the town (at P7 I think) and found the exit from that sector.

If somebody can point me to the briefings I would appreciate it. Not that this campaign seems that hard (Col Kelly is a crusty old veteran you know), but I would hate to have to replay a group of sectors just because I missed an important object or some mission objective mentioned in the briefings.

Did Trang (that Yanni guy) give you a mission? He did the first time I played the game but not the second. Still, the payoff isn't that important (the payoff is just a hint about the An Trang sector).

Speaking of An Trang, I *think* that the way to get there is to find James Bullock (SkyRider).

An Trang Smile =

It's An Loc and you get to cambodia when you find Bullock...

Thanks for the link to the manual. That brings up two more questions:

1. I have a dossier1 ZIP file in my briefings directory. Should I have been given that by now, or is that one of the things I have to find along the way? I would think dossier 1 should be a freebie.

2. Does it matter that I started the game on other than "experienced, tons of guns"? What does this control? Should I start over? Already had my ass kicked just getting to where I am, and I am not eager to repeat the process unless I screwed up badly.

"1. I have a dossier1 ZIP file in my briefings directory. Should I have been given that by now, or is that one of the things I have to find along the way? I would think dossier 1 should be a freebie."

Trang gives you password to it. After you complete quest he gave you. That's quite useless anyway.

"2. Does it matter that I started the game on other than "experienced, tons of guns"? What does this control? Should I start over? Already had my ass kicked just getting to where I am, and I am not eager to repeat the process unless I screwed up badly."

No, more difficulty only means more enemies and stuff like that.

First time through I played on Novice and everything worked just fine. The only problems I had were my own fault cause of an improper installation.

I've had some minor problems (eg. can't hire Tex, can't get Trang mission), probably because I imported a JA2 savegame. The first time I played it, it was on Experienced. Now I'm on Expert and it seems much the same except that Betty seems to have run out of cash WAY earlier....or maybe I'm just a more efficient scrounger.

Hi

The briefing the colonel talks about is just the html read me that I think quack fixed and has up at his site posted above.

JAT is right when he calls dossier 1 useless. It just gives you an idea of what to expect in An Loc.

I made the mod to be used on tons of guns, experienced without importing. Importing messes up some recruiting and changing skill levels just adds or decreases elites. Not playing on tons of guns may mess up ammo available, though I'm not sure, I doubt anyone here is playing with normal guns anyway. :sleep:
