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!
You goddamn heroes.
It doesn’t seem to work for me… I installed the latest nightly but it loads only the xcom files, not TFTD
It works! OSX build + TFTD data 😉
Addenum: it only works if I delete regular xcom data folder
Sorry my mistake, there’s no more “data” folder.
Just put your UFO files in “ufo” and TFTD files in “tftd”, they should have readmes explaining.
“You goddamn heroes.” true!
You goddamn heroes,X-COM revived the classic generation.
This is must be one of the happiest days of my life. Great job everyone!
Playing TFTD in high resolution is the greatest moment in my gamer life!
You magnificent bastards..
Awesome, great job!
This brought tears to my eyes.
Thank you for being so awesome.
I cannot express my gratitude.
I can still remember playing the demo mission 20 years ago.
It’s so wonderfull.
lobstermen are just too strong. Did one play through, got attacked at my main base 4 months in by lobstermen and they destroyed me.
At last! I couldn’t stop thinking about playing OpenTFTD since I saw OpenXCom. Thank you sooooo much!
Are there recommended settings which will make bug reports most helpful? E.g. I assume I turn on the two options marked “TFTD”, but what about the others?
This is brilliant. Hadn’t realized how much I’d missed this game until playing it again now in a decent format for modern PC’s.
For the player who found Lobstermen too strong…… They have very little stamina for movement and almost no natural protection against bladed weapons. Keep just out of their reach (I think it only required about 7 tiles away) then move in and dice them up with a knife (or similar).
TFTD mod support is coming to the modsite very soon… Working on it now…. Stay tuned!
OpenXcom Mod Site http://www.openxcom.com please submit ideas for what you wanna see.. Development is in prograss now.. 🙂
translating to spanish now XD
thx for the work…..
i am ending a mod for better aquanauts and more expensive
In TFTD there was a research bug that required you to interrogate a deep one before a certain thing or else the game would bug out. is that bug fixed?
Fun fact: Earlier nightlies had no support for Tleth, since Levianthan was missing “spacecraft: true”, and enabling final mission was hardcoded for STR_CYDONIA_OR_BUST research
translation finish, enjoy in spanish now,,,,,,,
none of the research bugs from the original should occur in openxcom. if they DO, please log them on the tracker.

Cept they shoot you like 3 times every turn if you move toward them. Got MC up rather fast, and they are super easy to mc. GG psyonics are way strong.
For the player who found Lobstermen too strong……
melee melee and stun XD….
This is a thing of very deep beauty. My only suggestion about the GUI is that it took me 5 minutes to find the TFTD selection, I thought I had installed it wrong.
But daggum, it’s hard. I started a quick “experienced” game, and turn 2 of the tactical they shoot grenades at me and kill 6 guys. Guess I need to go back to Beginner.
Guys, THANKS!! This is awesome.
Great job guys.
I have no idea how to install this it keeps saying error Geodata/wolrd.dat not found I put all the game files where it says to do it but I don’t really understand how to fix this
Is there a way to get this to work on the Android app version?
It should be available in the latest Android build, check the forum thread for more details.
Thanks for that! Just donated you 15€. Merry Christmas!
It works for me thanks! On Mac Osx Yosemite.
Thank you very much for this! 🙂
