This website is not maintained anymore. However, I want to redirect you to this continuation (code), who continued the Stracciatella project in March 2013. 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.

Sector K4: Orta Research Facility


Map information

Non-Recruitable NPCs Orta is not on the map initially. It’s the General in the Military Facility who gives you the Orta location, saying that it’s kind of a research lab for Deidranna’s weird purposes. The exact location of Orta is K4. On the ground floor there is a scientist (Walter) who opens a locked door that leads to the basement, if you give him $20.000 in cash. After he opens the door, you can kill him to get the money back. Other option to open this door is to go talk to Skipper (old guy) in Estoni (I6). Give him an item — any item — and he will give you a keycard for this secure area — the basement of Orta, where are loads of elite enemies and a whole truckload of Rocket rifles waiting for you. First you have to kill the enemies and then find a scientist (Ernest) who can open the door to the room with the rifles, you’ll find him in the western part of the cellar. There are three or four small rooms behind a locked door. He usually is in the room in the south, standing in a corner. If you haven’t entered all the rooms, you may probably missed him. Talk to him, until he speaks no more or says “it is time to be generous”. Hand him about $20.000-25.000 in money and he’ll open the door for you. You can then kill him to take the money back. In the room you’ll find about 5 Rocket rifles in there, all usable. Or simply threat him 3 times, and he’ll go open the storage room door.
