Man, since I didn't had the CD-ROM anymore I decided to don't crack the game and bought it on Steam. But I bought JA2-Wildfire with Classic JA2 has a DLC. I already had 1.13 all set up with Arulco Vacantion in the Classic JA2 from Wildfire until I realized my mistake (there is JA2 Gold on sell). Thing is... I'm running the game on Win10 with absolutely 0 problems without patching anything for compability (not even on the Properties 16-bits/WinXP). No red errors, no graphic glitches, no freezes or lags... just perfect. It made me curious and I downloaded a JA2 Gold cracked just to test out with the same 1.13+AV, and I did get some red errors and the game runs wonky, kinda laggy. I didn't pushed it foward and kept playing JA2WF-JA2classic. I don't know if Steam version of JA2Gold is the same I downloaded and if it works good, but for me the JA2Classic dlc from Wildfire is not only cheaper than the Gold version but also seens to run better.

Am I missing something here from not using Gold with 1.13? It seens everything is all right to the point I do recommend to buy Wilfire+JA2Classic for a Win10 run instead of JA2Gold.


There's a steam discussion from whoever handles JA2 wildfire on the steam discussions about them removing a windows 10 compatibility announcement because it doesn't work on all windows 10 installations.


It SEEMS the steam version (JA2 wildfire with JA2 classic DLC) comes with the fixed winelib or whatever it is that comes with the compatibility fixes in 1.13 "preinstalled" (in the game folder when you download it) This explains why it runs better but also why even though I didn't touch it in terms of compatibility, I still get the scrambled SAM view. (I just deal with it. Sure it's bugged but it's not gamebreaking as you can still tell which tiles are protected by SAMS.)
