JAPE: A Jagged Alliance 2 Person Editor

Version 0.41

About JAPE

JAPE is a save game editor for Jagged Alliance 2. JAPE allows you to view and edit the items and attributes of your mercenaries, or any other character in the game.

JAPE works with the following versions of Jagged Alliance 2:

Other versions may work, but are untested.

Only stats editing is possible for version 1.13 save games, not item editing.

System Requirements

JAPE requires that you install the Sun Java runtime, version 5 or above. If you don't have this installed already, go to the Java Download Page and get it.

Installation

Download the file JAPE041.zip.

Extract the contents of JAPE041.ZIP into the directory where you installed Jagged Alliance 2. Sorry, no InstallShield setup program.

Running JAPE

Starting Jape

From the desktop, create a shortcut to the file JAPE.JAR, and double-click on the shortcut. The JAPE main window should appear. Or from the command line, go to the Jagged Alliance directory and type JAPE.JAR

If you doubleclick JAPE.JAR and you get an error message saying that "Windows cannot open this file:", then you need to install the Sun Java runtime. See above.

Opening a Saved Game

From the File menu, select Open.... Navigate to the SavedGames directory and select a saved game file. The saved games will be named SaveGame01.sav, SaveGame02.sav, etc.

Editing Character Data

The left side of the JAPE window contains a list of all the editable characters in the saved game. Characters with a * beside their name are the mercenaries on your team. Click on the name of character, and his/her statistics will be displayed on the right side of the window.

The middle of the JAPE window contains detailed information on a single character. Some information is only present for your currently hired mercenaries. Most of the fields are editable. Go ahead, give your custom merc 99 Marksmanship.

The right side of the JAPE window contains information on the currently selected merc's equiptment. Again, this information is only present for your currently hired team members.
