New mods for Back in Action
I am releasing my mod/mod launcher on moddb. http://www.moddb.com/mods/sbobovycs-jabia-mods-tools

The mods include two tools and two gameplay mods. The tools are character debugger and camera tweaker. One mod changes how character stats increase and another changes the rate and type of loot dropping. Check out the development discussion here http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php/topics/311870/JA_BiA_Tools_Project.html#Post311870

Im looking to get the bundle on sale now. Do the mods work with the DLCs as well?
spray_n_pray Apr 19, 2013 @ 8:56pm 
The "specialist" DLC are just some camo and guns, which are not affected by the mods. I have not tested the mods with point blank and shades of red, but they should work. As for crossfire, I have not ported my mods to it. The mods work by injecting DLLs into the game that modify the game code/memory, so it is would take time to port to Crossfire.

Thanks, spray_n_pray. I read on Mods DB that there is a mod for Crossfire in beta on a JA-BIA forum.

Thanks for continuing to mod. I wish we could have gotten more mods and content before the community packed up and moved on

Hi sbobovyc,
Id like to ask you what is the state of JABiA? Judging by the official forums the developers have abandoned the game already and its pretty much dead.

Do the mods like Combat evolved, Ultimate AIM professionals, Blue Dawn still work with the lastest version of JABiA and/or Crossfire?
What mods/tools would you recommend to beef up the vanilla gameplay the most?

Cheers
karl

Karl,

Bitcomposer and Full Control are working on a new turn based Jagged Alliance. In my opinion, JABIA and Crossfire are in their final state and not going to be updated. I stopped hanging around the official forums and switched to using Bears Pit to post my work in progress.

As for mods, I do believe that Combat Evolved works with latest version of JABIA. There is also a version for Crossfire. I have not tried CE myself, but by all accounts it improves the game. The other two mods could be tweaked to work with the latest version. It would not be hard, just would take some time. I have not really played the game with other people's mods due to time constraints. I of course recommend my collection of mods for JABIA :)

Is there any particular things that you would like to tweak about JABIA? I can let you know if it is possible and how to do it. I have compiled some documentation about various modding topics here https://github.com/sbobovyc/JA-BiA-Tools/wiki

I know the question is for the OP, but if you allow me... is level cap pretty much unmoddable?

I reverse engineered how mercs get XP and level, so it is modable. The way my xpmod works is by injecting a DLL into the game which overrides how XP is updated. Instead of just increasing the level cap, I opted to completely change how mercs level. With xpmod, your skills increase as you use them. I just added a section in the wiki how to tune xpmod to your liking. https://github.com/sbobovyc/JA-BiA-Tools/wiki/New!-Mod-projects Also, per every level up you get 2 free skill points. I think this is better than just upping the max level.

i just started a game with CE for bia, worked great, just wondering that all mercs are lvl 1 , which makes a few merc superhuman after they level up a few levels :(

Thanx for sharing! Is there any chance i can turn the animated pics of the mercs into "classic-style ja2" pics?.

With current knowledge about the engine, probably not. From what I recall, the engine dynamically builds a character model and renders each character in a view. You may be able to replace the models with a plane with a texture on it. However, I don't know if not having an animation on the plane would brake the game.

A new update is ready for testing:

* Added money field to character debugger
* Debugger instructions only show up on first run.
