Jagged Alliance 2 Stracciatella

What does "Stracciatella" mean?

The name of this project is an allusion to calling an un-modded version of a game the "vanilla" version. The goal of this project is to make the late 1990's-game Jagged Alliance 2 available on a wide range of platforms, improve its stability, fix bugs and provide a stable platform for mod development. All these additions combined make the final product still look sort of like vanilla with having some improvements added as pieces of chocolate.

JA2 Stracciatella is the only project for JA2 which truly fulfills the role of a fan-patch or "unofficial patch" since the project does NOT focus on adding new features to the game and thus changing it's gameplay, but on improving, fixing and modernizing the game.

The mod is released and fully playable. It is still being actively developed.

This looks pretty neat, After watching some let's plays I grabbed ja2 on gog awhile back but not having played it back when a lot of the general roughness of a game that came out in 98ish? Kinda put me off.

Any thoughts on adding more on screen controls for various things like change stance rof so on so forth? Especially with all the extra real estate being able to run in larger res offers. As well as being able to rebind keys would be equally awesome.

Definitely be keeping a eye on this though, after my last startup earlier this week and it just not clicking I was off to a new run at silent storm to scratch that itch lol.

JA2's UI can take a bit of time getting used to. However, there are buttons for the most common actions (including change stance and switch firing mode) when having character view enabled (not squad view).
Most importantly, there are shortcuts for just about EVERY action. They are however not rebindable atm...

Had same problem as "Guest". My installation included JA2 1.13 Mod. Since I was uncertain as to how to delete 1.13, I manually deleted both data folders, had Steam uninstall local content then reinstall and then dropped the Stracciatella files in the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Jagged Alliance 2 Gold" folder.

No more error. Of course my 1.13 save games are also lost but I'm OK with that.

The 1.13 mod doesn't work with Stracciatella. Basically, all mods that bring their own EXE won't work with Stracciatella.

But nice to hear, that you could figure out a way to get things running ;)

Followed the instructions. Had a problem stating "runtime error Number of tilesets in code does not match data file."

Can you please remove the turn-based gameplay?

The turn-based gameplay is one of the most distinctive features of Jagged Alliance 2. Actually, it is a core game-mechanic that makes people love+play the game in the first place.
As far as I remember, there was an attempt and some experimenting with removing the TB gameplay some years ago in the v1.13 project. But it didn't turn out into something useful.

Of course, you can elaborate the request some more and post it on the development page:
Github.com
Then, you can discuss it directly with the rest of the team.
