    Ok guys now you think for sure ZOMG NOOB WE HAVE ALREDI A BLACKMARKEZ MOD. But this is original. The difference is, that you can also spawn enemies and objects. Of course you can spawn all vehicles too. So after 1 week of working I finally finished it. The mod includes the following things:

    – No Blackmarket Spawn Limit (spawnsettings.bin)

    – Instant Blackmarket Loading (sheldonservice.bin)

    – Everything free and unlocked (blackmarket.bin)

    Videos: Be sure to watch in 1080p and fullscreen!

    ย

    ย 

    Credits: Thanks to pixel for his blackmarket editor and thanks to Technopath for the pictures of the vehicles. They saved me lot of time! And especially big credits to derkkk for his fixed gibbed tools that let me edit epe files!

    NOTE: Since this mod spawns objects which are not built to get spawned by the blackmarket, the game may crash sometimes, mainly if you spawn big not moveable objects. If its crashing a lot remove vehicle mods out of dropzone. These can conflict with the blackmarket.You do NOT have to .bins such as missile.bin, weapons.bin, grapplingparams.bin or player.bin.

    Install: Put the zxz_bmmod.tab and the zxz_bmmod.arc into your just cause 2/archives_win32 folder. Be sure to remove all other black market mod or this will not work. Thanks cluedo97 for the note.

    it might be possible with the objects gonna look at it now but with the npc not now i have to wait for an update/fix of gibbeds tool so i can convert .aiteam files. what object do you like to spawn?

    I want the boat object from Mile High Club or the balloons from the Mile High Club.
    I would liked to see this giant boat sailing the ocean or on the top of a building.Hehe..
    Im kidding.Nobody cant do that of course.Maybe a building or something.Can we spawn a building or a Bridge? We could build a new world if we could spawn these objects.:lol:

    i think the whale will be possible later but i think we cannot spawn buildings or bridges or locations like mile high club

    well first i need to wait so i can convert .aiteam files. in this time im waiting i will see if i can add some more (useless) objects. maybe i will take a look at the rockets from the last mission and try to make them faster. i will also take a look at the ballon physic part.. but dont hope too much. i dont think i can make it flyable.

    then you are not going to be part of the contest. If you’re not going to play the first prize, then we’re not going to let zenin waste his cash on something you wont use. Of course, this isn’t why I’m moving this.

    You submit your work for yourself. If wildride wants it, he should make his own mod and upload it, and make his own thread.

    I moved both the addon and thread to the appropriate sections.

    It’s as simple as that.

    Download this file:

    blackmarket.bin

    and put it in the dropzone folder.

    Providing you have the DLC they will show up in the blackmarket twice, one free and one the regular price.

    you need to edit the epe file. you can spawn multiple objects of something or different, but sometimes it doesnt work especially for npcs because of the aiteam file.

    I just wanna ask something…
    Why does there’s no object list on my black market?

    i checked it all but the only available are all weapons and vehicles
    there’s no such thing like people and items!

    and also most of the vehicles doesnt have a picture preview

  • #89517

    There is a bug on this mod that when you upgrade vehicles and aircraft the upgrades sometimes get reverted back to level 1. I have only seen this with the Sivirkin 15 Havoc and possibly the Makoto MZ 260s. I will continue to observe this bug and would be glad if you could fix it in you’re next version.

    Hi zxz’s Blackmarket Mod GOD, first of all, you’ve done an awesome Job! I bow to thee.

    There are two question though that come to mind
    1. Is it possible to Spawn Friendly soldiers (like 30 or so)? That would be real Fun!
    2. Is it possible to have your mods and other mods (like weapons mods) that don’t clash. I think this is something JC2 creators need to answer themselves.

    Let me say again…great Job!!!

    Awesome job on this awesome mod. And also thanx to Kaii for making a mod compatible with this one. A suggestion for future update can you please include ramps? Possibly just copy all those that are in the game already and include each as its own spawn like you have done with all the other objects thus far? Appreciate what you have done so far, would not be expecting anything more but the awesome level would go up even more. :ohmy:

    All I have to say is, BEST BLACK MARKET MOD EVER. Fuck that mod made by Buzz_Kill. Besides, that thing DOESN’T WORK. This is the real deal. I love this mod. Only complaint is that there’s so much crap on the equipment menu that it takes me SO LONG to get to the one I want to spawn. Funny rock? Seriously? WHAT’S THE FUCKING POINT?

    Still a great mod though. One chaos for you. :D

    I’m trying to mod zxz’s blackmarket mod.
    I’m trying to make the items not all free, and make them unlock with progress/chaos – like in the regular blackmarket.

    I can successfully change the prices and values to make items unlock with progress.

    However, I cannot get the images to appear in the listings. Only the name shows.
    Standard Blackmarket item images still show up, just not all the “additional” items.

    Process info:

    When I unpack the .arc/.tab files,
    the image dds files are placed in a folder structure: _UNKNOWN/images

    NOTE: There are 169 image .dds files in the mod.

    Also, the image files (after unpacking) have random names like: 00A9B3F2.dds
    But in blackmarket.bin, they seem to be referred to as names like: bmt_v035_sport_custom.dds

    Troubleshooting I’ve tried:

    When I then try running the mod (& compiling it back into .arc/.tab)…
    I put these files into dropzone – with the image files in a folder called _UNKNOWN/images, like this:
    exported
    settings
    _UNKNOWN/images/00A9B3F2.dds …

    and I’ve tried a folder called images, like this:
    exported
    settings
    images/00A9B3F2.dds …

    I’ve tried putting them not in a folder, like this:
    exported
    settings
    00A9B3F2.dds …

    AND I’ve tried renaming the image files from “00A9B3F2.dds” to the blackmarket bin names – like “bmt_v035_sport_custom.dds”
    And then RE-tried all the dropzone folder combinations listed above..

    What am I missing?? It’s making me crazy.

    NOTE: I believe I’ve also tried this folder structure within dropzone
    textures/blackmarket/bmt_v035_sport_custom.dds
    (This is the FULL string listed in blackmarket.bin)
    I’ll confirm – It was very late when I was doing this

    Thanks for the input CoconutFred.
    I tried your suggestion, plus some other simultaneous tests…

    And I figured it out! ;)

    What I need to do is – and this is very technical, so hopefully everyone will know what I mean…

    What I need to do is NOT be a dork.

    As I mentioned, I tried to label one image: bmt_v035_sport_custom.dds

    But in my tired state of mind, I actually copy/pasted this file name: bmt_v035_sport_custom.dds

    And as we all know – Windows defaults to hiding the file extension.
    So – in reality – my file was named “bmt_v035_sport_custom.dds.dds
    Obviously that didn’t work!

    D’oh!



    So, I need to rename all the image files appropriately.dds
    And I found they simply go in dropzone.

    Well, after 6 months of this masterpiece functioning fine, now it won’t work. At all. Literally, when I try to order ANYTHING from the market, it overheats my graphics card in a second and the motherboard has to cool down. ASUS Republic of Gamers Laptop. I’ve tried everything I could do to fix this.

    1.) If you computer is crashing due to overheating it most likely has nothing or little to do with the mod. It is much more likely that the strain of running the game itself is overheating the card.

    2.) Have you used a temperature monitoring program to keep tabs on your temps? CoreTemp is good for CPUS and ATI Tray Tools & SpeedFan are good for ATI & NVIDIA cards respectively.

    3.) What you should do is open up the laptop and clean the fans. This is naturally much harder on a laptop- but the only real solution you will find to overheating, generally, is either to clean the parts or replace them.

    Ryan, thanks for the help; it isn’t my laptop fans though. I’m pretty sure this only works for JC2, and it always crashes in that game only. It doesn’t crash in GR:FS, MW3, Starcraft II, Diablo III, Black Ops II, nothing. Only on JC2. And my laptop has a built in coolant, so it’s VERY rare for it to overheat like that. I believe this is the only time it has overheated on me, and I’ve had it for a year now.

    Friendly soldier driver is BADLY needed!!!

    Please someone update this greatest black market mod to also include a friendly soldier driver.

    1. It is fun to have someone drive you around in the car of your choice while you can shoot at Panau military vehicles using the mounted turret.

    2. Now that the CRAZY Civilian AI mod is out, you can actually sit on the passenger seat and enjoy the crazy racing that the mod provides! It’s so annoying to wait for a friendly soldier car, stop it, throw friends out, blow up every car but your own and finally have those friends drive your car unless they are already dead by that moment.

    It would be so great to have the friendly soldier driver item available in the black market mod!!!

    Thank you!

    It might be a glitch or something, the hot air balloon must have been stuck in the ground! Try spawning it at a straight/plain area.

    No, the hot air balloon doesn’t work. That’s why zxz placed it in the “equipment” section instead of the “vehicles” section.

    cool market mod, specially due to the fact that you can order enemy and friendly soldiers. now you can plan massive invasions into towns ๐Ÿ‘ฟ , what you guys think is the best way to transport them around?

  • #89535

    actually had an idea now and it worked,
    – you can transport all your friendly soldiers if you use “multiple roupes” in the Bolopatch, stuck all them with your vehicle, wen you arrive destination turn off multiple ropes and press f to release the ropes

    takes a bit of time, would like to know other ways

    As I recall, some of the guys – like Mandella644 and CoconutFred – were successful in making a transport vehicle.

    Search the forum for “Adding seats to Vehicles”.

    BTW – Grappling soldiers to your vehicle to transport them = LoL
    Clever & creative. But SO brutal. ;)

    thanks a million, i found some posts about this yeah, i have zero code experience so lets see what ill mess up with :)

    yeah transporting with the hook (if you have 10 or more frindly soldiers) works better for me on a transport helicpter or a boat. they love it, scream of joy

    I know that this forum is dormant but I have a MAJOR problem. Whenever (it doesn’t always work) the mod works there are literally zero,zip, zilch vehicles, I cant even spawn them in. its not like the bug where civilians & their vehicles don’t spawn its every vehicle, they are simply not there. As you can probably imagine this is extremely annoying and I was wondering if anyone has/had the same problem and could give me a hand. thanks in advance.
