OK, so never mind that I'm a turn-based strategy game fanatic, yet I never played any of the Jagged Alliance games.  That said, I just pulled JA2 and Unfinished Business off a dusty game shelf.  My question is, do I install both together, or should I install and play JA2 first, and *then* add the expansion later?   Sometimes the expansions (a la Neverwinter Nights) add content to the original campaign...so is that the case here?  

Thanks!

Edit:  I did find this recent 'newfangle' mod thread, but haven't looked yet to see if I should have UB installed from the get go:

JA2 is a huge game all by itself and the expansion takes place after the first part, so I  don't see why you'd install both right now.

I think the expansion adds some interface niceties that probably should have been in the game all along, so it might be a good idea to install the expansion pack as well.  I could be wrong about it modifying the orignal game, but I seem to remember it working like that.

It does. It lets you see where your characters will have cover when they move. To me, that's a huge improvement.

Would anyone happen to have, and be able to email me the 'Jagged Alliance 2 Hit Chance Calculator' file?  The download at
http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/ seems to be broken, and I can't find it anywhere else.
