What a great mod! Just that old habits are hard to break. Deep in my bones was the knowledge that Meduna and it's outskirts is a bad place and that in the beginning there may be problems with money. So as the first thing I went via Balime to Alma to get me some steady income. Had I only known how many volunteering (but mostly useless) friends Deidrana has and how much money they have donated in all kinds on boxes... But I've got me a new dynamic duo: Mike and Razor soundlessly cleaning woods and swamps at night.
Sly left on the second day in the middle of a battle, it's OK, just that he took with him my only silent sniper rifle.
Still I have a little problem. When Bobby Ray sends me 4.7 ammo for HK G11, the whole box disappears when I try to reload the gun. I can do without it, but maybe there is some bigger bug behind it.

Long time modder, who is no longer part of the Bear's pit community. He still works on his own projects, but doesn't post here. He is notable for the original mod of 'Vengeance' 'Renegade Republik' and 'Fight for Freedom' among others.
what have you done to him? not sure

Check sector inventory, he has a nasty vest that takes pretty much nothing good.

if/when somebody tweaks this mod a bit - in sector J16 you can enter not only through the ambush zone but also from SW corner - just that you can not move, you see nobody, still the enemy sees you and starts shooting. and: enemy can spawn in the northern (higher) zone of the sector where you can not hit him or get to him. no bid deal of course: you can take prisoners or retreat, return and use automatic resolve.

News just in;

We made some further progress on DSM in the past couple of months. After a pleasant playthrough updates have been made.

The updates includes many new custom maps and various tweaks/fixes. One thing to note is that some RPC's were moved, most notably Tony and Hans are now available earlier in the game.

Check your installation. That's most likely caused by a problem with installation of your original JA2 (CD, Steam, GOG, whatever).

Those .slf-Libaries are part of the original JA2, so the original must be instaled in a proper way.

In Folder "Data" of your JA2-instal should be a file named "Ambient.slf".

I found the install in a separate drive. The files in the data folder is about 1GB in size. I might have copied/moved my install somewhere. Do I need to install the GOG version?

My version from Steam is 865 MB, my CD version is 863 MB - in total. So, if your Data-Folder alone is 1 GB, something might be wrong.

To play JA2v1.13 and mods for it, you'll first need the original JA2 as base.

It doesn't have to be the one from GOG. GOG and Steam are just popular examples where you can get the original JA2 nowadays.

Last I've checked, it was about 20 Euro for Steam. If you wait for some of those "cheap-sale-weekend", "Green Tuesday" or alike, you can get it for under 10 Euro (or whatever your currency is).

I'd recommend an english version since 1.13 and most mods are in english anyway.

If you already own an original JA2, better re-instal it to make sure it's working.

If you are using Windows, don't instal JA2 in any system-folders (like "Programs"- or "Windows"-Folder), that's causing problems. Choose a neutral place, for example something like "C:\\Games\JA2".

installed steam version.
copied contents to separate folder F:\Games\Jagged Alliance 2 Deidrana Side Mod
copied over the mod.
game starts normally, (but message says something about safe house in p1 sector, but I am not transferred there. I start in Omerta where elites hand over my arse to me on Novice difficulty). Is it suppose to be like that?

UPD. somehow i transferred to p1. enemies still tough.

upd 2 the mod is cute, I wanted to play on Deidrana side long time ago.
Advice: In ORTA, underfloor level do not recruit scientist Ernest before he opens door. Is it possible to give him keys from the storage if new player accidentally hires him? IIRC in Vanilla it is impossible to open this door.


is it bug or feature with lbe?
sometimes it is better not to wear it. TT Assault west have only 2 small pockets

(One other thing - game lagging, tried to play this mod and Arulco folding stock mod with all dlls copied, affinity of the processor set to 1, colors reduced, compat to xp sp2/sp3 etc. nothing helped. any other ideas?)
windows 10 x64
core i5, nvidia gtx 1660
upd 3
registry fix helped - i had to put registry file to the 1.13 folder,

I love the idea for this mod and its being a enjoyable experience to play it, funnily enough, the mod could sort of fit into the continuity by happening before JA2, as Deidranna is seizing control of the country, and thats whats going around in my head.

It's cool to play as Elliot, or the Warden, with a chaotic minded IMP merc, and a few misfits from MERC while you fight for the bad side.


Please keep it up!

Nice mod, a fresh breath, although i dislike being the bad guy.... no problems so far, have liberated Meduna and Alma. Found, Maddog, Shank and Dynamo but they are hostile. Killing them will probably not sit well with Matt and Jake, tried to cuff them and maybe turn them to my side, no dice. It's war and there are no happy endings i suppose. I wish though that they could be recruited, as i really need the money from the Alma mine and gas from Jake, assuming he's selling it.

just as a remark: in my game (build 19.08.24) nobody can repair vehicles (or at least Eldorado, others are in good shape)- not Gasket nor Waldo nor Dave nor Mike...

The latest installent of Deidranna's Side Mod is now available.
You have two ways to install it now;

1. Full Archive (No separate 1.13 install required)
https://www.mediafire.com/file/mlnqwhhxe3hoxxb/DSM_-_Full_Sep19_21.7z/file

Do this by making a new copy of ('Vanilla') English JA2(1.12)

Unpack the latest DSM archive over the install. It should ask whether to overwrite ja2.ini

2. Partial Archive (1.13 needs to be installed first)

Do this by making a new copy of English JA2(1.12)
Install 1.13 over this vanilla base
Unpack the latest Partial Archive https://www.mediafire.com/file/tn4iajzf4p8d0f6/DSM.7z/file over this[/color]

This mod uses it's own EXE, so the new exe to use is ja2_r8734_3686fbd4 which fixes some bugs that were occuring previously.

This latest installment (Sept 2021) includes additional custom maps.

To be clear use ja2_r8734_3686fbd4 to run the game, start a new game, do not use any other exe or you will corrupt your data! The starting sector will be P1.

Enjoy.

Hi there

I am assuming that the updated links are on the first top of the Deidranna's Side Mod Download & Installation. Because the date on the first link is Sep 19 21. Your message is Oct 1 21, which is today.
And as for the new and updated exe, the ja2_r8734_3686fbd4, i hope it's not similar to VR. DSM is a fresh perspective and s far it works well with the r8734_68a212bb.exe but it probably has bugs that i haven't encountered yet.

@Burzmali

Hello there, first vehicle in my game, it's a military Jeep, found it in N7 if i remember correctly. It took a bullet but my Engineer IMP was able to repair it. That was about a week ago, before the latest .exe.

Yes, use the same links top of the page, the ones a couple of posts up point to the same link. Thankfully the links remain the same, even when the file has been updated as I just overwrote the original ones.
