Jagged Alliance 2

Do you people still play it?

Got reminded about the game by the recent news about a squad of mercs breaking into Haitan dictator's residency and eliminating him. Although the guys have failed to get out of the country. Needs to be made into a custom JA map.

Yes I play it time to time, even the first game. Though I always get frustrated because it is very hard without savescumming, and I hate doing that. They are amazing games still.

The game is actually open source since 2004, when the devs released the source code.
So it can be played on modern hardware.
But I guess one will still want to run it through emulator to avoid any quirks.
Because for example Hexen source ports break scripts, resulting in the game hanging on some scripts:

And I've experienced similar issue while playing Warzone 2100, where AI and scripts got botched in the campaign.
