Hello
Recently i downloaded that uc-utils for making my own mod for Urban ChaosHere are all the steps i went to it:
1. I ve installed JA Gold edition but only the first disk, without the Unfinished Business
2. I ve extracted Urban Chaos mod to some other directory and then installed it into Jagged Alliance Gold directory
3. I ve extracted uc-utils.zip to some other directory and then executed the UC_UTILS.EXE to install it to the JAGold dir
Now the following problem occured:
When i try to run the JA2BETA.BAT the programm freezes while loading and i must use ctrl+alt+del to close it.
Can you help me?

This is an extremely common problem. The usual solution is to get ahold of the modifyed Mss32.dll file (if I'm remembering right.
E-mail me and I'll send it you're way usually within a day or two.

Welcome aboard and happy modding.

My e-mail address is Khor1966@yahoo.com. When I see you're mail I'll do my best to get the editor running. Be sure to title you're mail something like Ja2 so there is no way I'll accidentally delete it.

I'd like to 'bump' this topic because I haven't been able to help vampire and because this is a very common problem with the Beta.

If we could find and post a cohesive solution to this I believe a lot more people would become mappers either for pure fun or as part of new mods.

If anyone thinks they might know what is keeping the beta from launching please post here.

i have two installs of beta editor, one works, one shows a black screen, the mss32.dll is the same though...

i think in my case, the problem with betaeditor coinceded with a corruption of prof.dat

as the UC-prof.dat has suffered as well (think of the bug when ending the game there might be some connection...

my suggestion: make a new install of ja2 gold, but don`t paste UC over it, just the tilesets and ja2set.dat (and maybe your edited exe)

then use betaeditor in this install instead of the other one

Here is a version of mss32dll which will run Beta Editor.
Note: this version wont run the game.
