He has precompiled versions available for Mac and Windows, and added the much desired freedom to play at any resolution. If you are looking for any more information related to JA2: Stracciatella, refer to the JA-Galaxy forum, which has been the central point of communication throughout the past decade (!). Much credits forever to Tron, for his great initiative to create Straciatella back in 2009.

Bobby Ray's

Related sectors


Your orders through Bobby Ray's can be sent to either Drassen or Meduna airport. In the tactical view, go to the delivery area, and open up your box.

After you have captured the Drassen Airport sector you’ll be able to order weapons and other stuff through Billy Ray’s on-line weapons store, to be deliv- ered in the Airport. Pablo is the man in charge of the shipments work in the Airport. But sometimes there are some problems, when ordering the stuff. . .

Q: Problem with Gun Shipments. I don’t know where they went in the Airport. . .

A: Are you looking in the crates in the building marked SHIPMENTS? I found that if you talk to Pablo before opening the crates may help reduce the losses. Also need to use merc with high leadership. I found also that if I bribe Pablo, usually with $100, from time to time, I’ll get all my stuff intact, and always assume a friendly posture. If you already have militia, just withdraw $10 from your account & give it to him (don’t choose “give” option in chat options, instead withdraw $10 from bank and put them with cursor on Pablo). Your history log will read “Greased Pablo’s palms” and from then on he will guard your stuff 100% just as if you had shot him in the legs. If you rough him up that helps too but be careful with the violence. Just use the fist icon on him (punch) a few times, and it’ll work wonders for your relationship. . . If you attack Pablo after you have militia at Drassen airport, your loyal militia will interpret Pablo as an enemy & go ballistic. Pablo will not survive. If you kill him the locals will turn against you. But if decide to cut Pablo’s throat (Ira tells you that he works for Deidranna and you should kill him), he is replaced by a nice boy named Sal who’s kind of stupid, but not any better at shipping stuff either — he loses your shipments sometimes too. You can bribe him with $100, or kill this one as well, but if you do this, your loyalty in Drassen is gone. . . Killing only Pablo seems to have no effects on Drassen loyalty.

Q: First of all, Eric T.Cheng said earlier that it’s worth killing Pablo because Sal takes his place and does a little better. However, in the “official” strategy guide, it says that Sal is not nearly as reliable as Pablo, so you should keep him alive. So, there are two contradicting sides. Who is more reliable, Pablo or Sal?

A: I don’t recall saying that Pablo is worth killing. I do remember saying that you should beat Pablo up a bit to get him to return your stolen shipments from Bobby Ray’s. And yes, Sal is much much worse than Pablo, he won’t steal your shipments but lose them outright!
