Jagged Alliance 2 Stracciatella
An improved, cross-platform, stable Jagged Alliance 2 runtime.
The goal of the project is to make Jagged Alliance 2 available on a wide range of platforms, improve its stability, fix bugs and provide a stable platform for mod development. Moddability is still in the early stages.
Data files from the original game are still required and will be used by JA2-Stracciatella.
High Resolution Support
Added support for high video resolutions. For example, game can be started in 1680x1050 mode like this:
ja2.exe -res 1680x1050.
A GUI Launcher is included to facilitate changing settings and tweaking the game.
Dead is Dead mode
Dead is Dead is a new game mode for players looking for a new challenge, and who think IronMan doesn’t cut it just yet. With the Dead is Dead mode the game takes the burden of saving and savegame management from your shoulders so you can concentrate on the important bits.
You select one savegame slot at the beginning of a new game, and the game will stick to that slot throughout your playthrough. The game will also make sure to save before you leave, so you can rest assured you will always be able to pick up at where you left.
With Dead is Dead there is no going back. If mercs die, there is no way of bringing them back. If you make a mistake, there is no way of reverting it. So be careful, play it safe, and prepare to be frustrated.
Bundled optional mini-mods
A few data-altering mods are included, but must be explicitly selected to be used:
- Generous Rebels, From Russia With Love: extra items in Omerta
- Honest IMP quiz questions: the satirical answers now include the personality aspect that they would contribute to
- O Fortuna: dramatic intro music for Jagged Alliance 2
-mod MOD_NAME Start one of the game modifications. MOD_NAME is the name of modification, e.g. 'from-russia-with-love. See assets/mods folder for possible options'.
The map editor is now integrated into the game. Start it through the launcher or like this:
