Technology marches on. Apparently kids no longer hang around the ICQ and the BBS, and instead use this new-fangled device called Discord. So now we have one of those too. Drop on by to get a lifetime opportunity to ask SupSuper when 2.0 is coming out! (it’s this year)
Don’t worry, IRC isn’t going anywhere, for those that prefer staying old-skool.
The Mod Portal will be going down for maintenance at 5PM EST (10PM GMT) for an undetermined period of time (a day at most). During that time you can try enjoying that crazy thing they call “vanilla”.
Ivan makes a brief comeback to teach you everything you could ever want to know about installing OpenXcom. Nightlies! Mods! ZIPs! Even more mods! That’s right, did you know there are mods other than X-Piratez? Better get some popcorn.
You can jump to a specific section by click the topics on the side.
openxcom.org is the official OpenXcom website. We run it. It’s where you are, right now!
openxcom.com is the unofficial mod site. We have no control over it. We realize this must be very confusing, sorry!
Anyways, the mod site is currently suffering difficulties due to a huge surge of traffic from RockPaperShotgun (thanks for the article btw!), so you may have trouble reaching your favorite mods. But don’t fret! You can also check the mod forums, all the popular ones will likely have mirrors.
Also, hi new confused people! XPiratez is over there. Wiki is that way. Enjoy your stay!
Watch Terror From the Deep being played on OpenXcom live for the first time!
Stream’s over, recording here!
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.
Where one falls, another one rises…
Pmprog, long-time OpenXcom fan and contributor, has started his own open-source remake of X-COM: Apocalypse. Go on over to his forum (registration password is pinned on General Discussion) and give him your support, and hopefully more finished remakes will join our ranks. 🙂
