And does anyone understand the value of, say, Autoweapons? Increases accuracy? Lowers AP?

Autoweapons increases accuracy when firing in bursts. It has no effect on single shots. At least, that's what it did in Jagged Alliance.

Also note that Lockpicking and Electronics were generally useless without good Mechanical skills. I'm guessing it's the same in Hired Guns.

If you get one specialty, does it get an extra bonus like in Jagged Alliance 2? For example in JA2 you could get Stealth and Night Ops skills, or you could take just one and get Stealth Expert or whatever it's called. Same with most of the other specialties.

I've not had any luck getting the night ops skill, even when I pick both the night ops answers. Anyone else had this issue?

Ideally I want a character with any combination of two skills out of auto weapons/throwing/night ops but all the combinations of answers I've tried have given me only 1 or none of these skills. Am I doing something wrong?

Just tried the quiz again with exactly the same answers as I had tried before and got a different set of skills so there must be a random element to what it gives you. Could be useful to know.

I can confirm that night ops seems impossible to get no matter what you do.

After trying a couple of combinations, I was able to get NORMAL, NIGHT OPS, and AUTOWEAPONS. It is repeatable. I can post my answers if anyone is interested.

OK. Since nobody else has looked into it, I started looking through the rest of the files and think I pretty much worked most of it out. I found that it isn’t always obvious from the Email you get after taking the IPA test exactly what you got. For example I was getting Nightops and thinking I didn’t get any skill because of how it is worded. It would sure great if the devs added the ability to see more detailed info about your character like Jagged Alliance 2 had. In JA2 you could see EXACTLY what perks you had because they were spelled out on your character info sheet. (Maybe some kind soul could mod this in later ;) )

I also made a chart for each question showing the tallies of each possible response so that I could plan out my responses to get a predictable result.

As stated by the OP, the quiz info can be found here: C:\Tri Synergy\Hired Guns\basis\scripts\logic

So I then made this chart:

The letter is the perk type A = Attitude S = Skill P = Phobia and the Number is the Answer number for that particular question.

(Sorry about the image size. I am having a hard time getting it sized correctly and I don't know how to post a table here)

In order to use this chart just figure out which attitude and akills you want. Then make sure the total for what you want is greater than the total for any other possibilities for each. I haven’t quite figured out how to get phobias to exactly what you want. It will take some more experimenting to figure out how those are calculated I think. If anyone wants to help that would be great.

So… For example in order to get Optimistic, Nightops and Stealth you would use:

6
2
3
5
1
2
3
3
3
3
3
6
4
4
2
5


The Email replies for each IPA result are found here: C:\Tri Synergy\Hired Guns\basis\locale\usa\scripts\emails

The E-mail for each result of the IPA will say as follows:

Attitudes


Aggressive

Dear Friend!

Let's be straight - nobody is perfect. Regular stress, hard work, a new home, bad diet - everything of this has a negative effect on our behavior, that's true.
We have found what troubles your communication skills: AGGRESSION.
While enraged, you are capable of the things that demons in hell can only dream about.
We would like to recommend you to spend more time outdoors avoiding stress. Exclude fat and fried food from your nutrition, replacing it with fruit and morning exercise.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Arrogant

Dear Friend!

To be frank - the test results have shown us what a unique kind of person we are dealing with. Undoubtedly, you are capable not only of the actions you threaten your friends and family with - but in fact your talents are boundless, oh yes!... However, why don't you let other people to do a part of work instead?
Your ARROGANCE can play an evil trick on you someday. And no-one will be near to help you…

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA


Asshole

Dear Customer!

The council of doctors processing the results of your testing have different opinions… Doctor Kleiner, a psychologist (Michigan University) thinks that (citation follows) "…the bastard was often beaten by peers in childhood", while Doctor Lynbert (Creps University, NY) replies your behavior is from "...the lack of attention in family, which later resulted in maniac obtrusiveness."
Anyway, the experts (probably as well as your relatives) are sure about one thing: You are INSUFFERABLE.
Few beings are able to communicate with you for long - it's a fact.

Best regards,
IPA

Coward

Dear Friend!

Our relations are anonymous, so we cannot give precise advice for your case… But we will try to soften the unpleasant news brought to you by the test results.
You see, it has nothing to do with everyone being afraid of half-open dark closet as a kid, or high-grade bullies at school… The thing is we all grow up. It's time to face the truth: you are a plain COWARD.
Don't worry though - the latest methods of our institute will help you overcome this "personal feature." First, visit unknown places more often. Second, while talking to people you don't know, act like they owe you a big sum of money. Third, when you see a police officer, mock his uniform and behavior loudly.
By following these simple recommendations, you will overcome your COWARDLINESS in a short period of time...
If you survive, of course.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Friendly

Dear Friend!

Your answers show you are a true Christian, who regards commandments above personal interest.
No living creature can be angry with you - because your appearance and demeanor beam with FRIENDLINESS and KIND-HEARTINESS. Keep it up, and the world will crumble before your smile.

P.S. Besides, as one of our customers said, "A kind word can give you much more than a gun and a smile." Think about it.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Loner

Dear Friend!

The test results clearly show us the following:
You are a LONER. Your only friend is the knife on your belt and your only enemy is your distrust.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Normal

Dear Customer!

It's so strange, especially in our complex days, but anyway - the test didn't show any extraordinary abilities or deviations in you. You are a NORMAL PERSON.
Of course, it's a bit unfair that someone else got Superman's cloak again, but believe us - all heroic deeds are done by no one but regular people. It helps that you stay unnoticed.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Optimist

Dear Customer!

A sure walk, a proud stature and a bright concept of the future - these things make you different from the others. You are forever OPTIMISTIC, and this is great. Although sometimes it's useful to play a little safer and avoid jumping in fire - but there's no reason not to hope for the best.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Pessimist

Dear Friend!

Your negative attitude towards your destiny will sooner or later affect your relations with people. Which will make you no good. Trust us, even if you are a PESSIMIST, it's not to be viewed as a dogma. Life is beautiful. All people are friends. Tomorrow will be a sunny day. Simply believe in it.
P.S. Don't forget an umbrella anyway. Just in case…

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA



Phobias


Claustrophobic

Dear Friend!

Walls cramp you in your nightmares not letting you breathe?... You are afraid of elevators (not to mention a shower cubicle)?... Your car is not spacious enough - even though it's a school bus?
Clearly, you have CLAUSTROPHOBIA. This is a well-known disorder, but the treatment is long and painful.
We recommend you to visit your therapist as soon as possible, and meanwhile, avoid being in closed spaces. Go on a march, or to a zoo, or even better - a safari.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Forgetful

Dear Customer!

Distraction and FORGETFULNESS are two main features of your personality that don't let you develop to your full. Keep that in mind… if you can.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Nervous

Dear Friend!

Let's be honest - have you had good rest recently? If you did, then how can we explain that you are the NERVOUS type? Trust us, life is too short, so don't waste it on worrying about useless people. In the end, the day will come when they will regret what they were doing... but it's going to be too late!
And up to then - control your emotions. Take care of yourself.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Psycho

Dear Friend!

The main thing you need to know is not everyone wants to murder you. Frankly, most of them didn't even think about it. Remember that, or you'll become a real PSYCHO.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA


Skills


Ambidextrous

Dear Customer!

Your great coordination and your ability to attract attention give you great chances in an artistic carrier - like... the circus? Did you ever think of becoming a clown juggler? No, you didn't? Than we recommend you to pay more attention to your inner desires and hidden abilities!

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Automatic Weapons

Dear Customer!

The test results have shown what was clearly seen at firing range - you are a specialist in AUTOMATIC WEAPONS. No matter what is in your hands - an M16 or an AKM - your heartbeat will stay steady and all bullets will find their target...

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Electronics

Dear Friend!

Your entire childhood was obviously dominated by computer games and has a serious effect on your test results. You know (or you think you know) how every electronic device you see works. It's a pity life regularly brings you to places where you don't see these things at all...

Or maybe it's for the better.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Hand to Hand

Dear Customer!

Your hard fists, tempered by many years of exercises have their effect! You are a professional HAND-TO-HAND fighter. Your fast reaction and high strength give you excellent chances to be victorious in melee combat. Be careful though - if your hit misses accidentally, it may bring a tree or a wall on you...

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Knifing

Dear Friend!

A knife is a logical extension of your hand, as it brings death to all. You are an expert in KNIFE COMBAT, and this proud name is bravely displayed by the scars on your body from the times when you weren't so effective with your weapon of choice.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Lockpicking

Dear Friend!

The ability to concentrate on movement and able fingers are really rare combination of skills amongst people of your profession. We think you could show great results in table tennis or card cheating. Just remember - these tricks will not help you in combat. Overall, you are an excellent LOCKPICK.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Martial Arts

Dear Customer!

Your sensei can be proud of you. The test clearly shows you are a MARTIAL ARTS master. You can choose a belt of any color as every of them will mark your individual combat skills as deadly and effective.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Nightops

Dear Customer!

Unfortunately, the efforts of best experts of our agency were unable to show any other special skills you have in your profession.

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Stealthy

Dear Customer!

The childhood you probably spent in scout camps taught you to misbehave without being spotted, because it helps you avoid punishment. Your childhood is gone, but its lessons were useful, and now you are an extraordinary specialist in STEALTH MOVEMENT. Enemies can hear you after they realize they are already too late...

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Teaching

Dear Customer!

Your parents taught you to read so you didn't bother them to read tales before you fell sleep. Since then you were constantly in front of your peers in your learning speed, this helped you to become a specialist in LEARNING. But be careful when you share your knowledge! Someone can ultimately use it against the teacher...

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA

Throwing

Dear Customer!

Training for your school baseball team must have had a clearly positive effect on your current talent. You are a great specialist in THROWING small items and inflicting maximal damage with them. Remember that the highly-developed countries lack hand grenades - share them with enemies freely.
Leave out pins. Take them as a memory...

We hope our further cooperation will bring you nothing but pleasant days.
Best regards,
IPA













OK hopefully this is useful to some of you. Now get out there and make the merc you want ;)
