I’m attending Firaxicon (Baltimore MD, USA) on October 3 if anyone’s around and wants to meet up, after which I’ll return to my cave and never be seen again.
That’s it. I didn’t wanna distract you from your TFTD.
DISCLAIMER: This is not a final release! We did not ignore all your feedback for the last year! There will still be many more fixes and additions before the next milestone!
Due to popular demand and the satisfactory performance of Terror from the Deep in the stream olympics, we have decided to unleash it onto the nightly builds so that everyone can try it out. Our goal here is to get as much testing of vanilla TFTD and make sure it’s fully playable from start to end, before you all decide to mod the crap out of it. 😛 Please report all bugs and inaccuracies here, and let me remind you the game being too hard / too easy does not count.
Installation Instructions for 1.0 users:
- A clean install is recommended. Extract the ZIP separately from 1.0 and reset your options to default.
- Put your UFO game files in “openxcom/ufo/” and your TFTD game files in “openxcom/tftd/”.
- Mods go in their own folders in “<save folder>/mods”. More details here.
- You can switch between games in Options > Mods. Note that UFO mods aren’t compatible with TFTD and vice-versa.
With all that out of the way… enjoy like these fine folk have!
Watch Terror From the Deep being played on OpenXcom live for the first time!
We’ll be rolling it out to the nightly builds eventually if the playtest proves satisfactory and the game isn’t completely broken (oh god it’s gonna be completely broken isn’t it).
For those using the UFO:CF Soundtrack for OpenXcom, Lorcán has taken the courtesy of updating these old tracks given their popularity, adding new instruments and effects, fixing annoyances, etc. You can get the new version here: http://www.openxcom.com/files/UFO_Cydonias_Fall_OST.zip
Another fan-made soundtrack joins the ranks! Sycraft has remastered the original X-COM OST with better sounds and high quality instruments, check it out if you’re looking for another alternative to spice up your OpenXcom experience.
As of today’s code changes, all current installations, configs, and mods are now “outdated”.
The data folder is a thing of the past, so installation instructions for up-to-date versions will need to be updated to reflect the new changes.
In a nutshell, Xcom data goes in the /UFO/ folder now, not in the /data/ folder.
Mod installation and standardisation has also changed drastically, more details can be found HERE.
And i guess here’s some screenshots of TFTD to whet your appetites.
IMPORTANT: TFTD is still not fully supported, and cannot be enabled yet.
The Ninex.info Server Team is once again in need of your help.
The server is currently hosting Two projects: “UFO: Alien Invasion,” and “OpenXcom.”
To continue providing hosting services we will need to raise funds for the coming year, to pay for both the service and possibly some new hardware, or a new server computer altogether, especially if such services are to be provided free of advertisements on the project websites.
In addition to the two projects mentioned, we also host additional programming and development tools for the community, including a snapshot autobuilder for OpenXcom, and a buildbot for UFO: Alien Invasion.
We also welcome new projects that are freely available and preferably open-source in nature, and hope to continue to provide tools for the community to grow, but we will need your help and support to do so.
