Dioxine do you use correct nightly? To work properly it need be exactly version form that day because previous and next have breaking changes in rulesets.
It could be that. If you can't download correct ruleset you can grab it form github:
https://github.com/Yankes/OpenXcom/tree/OpenXcomExtended/bin
(This link will be valid until I start working on next release, after that you will need find this files using commit id from ruleset)

I'm using the openxcom_git_master_2015_07_27_2340 as your mod page seems to suggest...?

Strange, it should work. I can't download this zip because its too old to be show but using rulesets form the repo that should be exactly same work fine.
Another thing is that nether I or Warboy touch languages files or code to possible cause this bug.
Another question is original exe work same or different? Only thing I could suggest now is made clean install.

Original exe works the same, with the same bug. No idea what's happening, I'll try it later.

Another issue, with the older build (early July I think, Extended ver. 2.3A) - seems that fixed weapons aren't recovered when a stunned unit comes back to life, at least with the old build I am using... Has this issue been fixed? Just asking because I don't track the bug fixes on daily basis.

EDIT:
the bug isn't appearing when the mod isn't enabled... but mod's strings are all fine...? I think it might be linked to the faux-master status of the mod... maybe I should put ALL of the language file into extraStrings? This would cure the ailment for sure, although it's a ton of work...

I don't know, I only recall some Warboy commit about some "sticky" fixed weapons. Personally I didn't encounter this bug or fix it.

All right, all I needed to do to properly upgrade to the new version Extended 2.4A was to put the en-US.yml file in mod's /language/ directory. :)

However, as of 27th July Nightly, the missing fixed weapons bug still persists.

Make sure you have original UFO files in the /UFO folder, last time I was getting the same error and it took me some time to realize I forgot to copy these files... :)

works fine with regular nightly executable but not with openxcomex executable. although the previous build worked fine.

Thank you for the mod, Yankes! Please, may you update the first post, since now i discovered it is avaiable also for linux, along with install istructions for that so?  Another useful tip would be to indicate mods that are compatible with it, hopefully ;)

EDIT: once next openxcom stable version will be relased, a dedicated ubuntu PPA for the mod may be also created, don't know...

I'm gonna use this for a special project. Been meaning to do this for a while. There are a bunch of things I'd like to be able to use.

When is TFTD modding supported for extended?
My problem was TFTD xcom2 folder can't be read. That's why was giving me can't read folder errors.  That's cause TFTD xcom2 is not supported yet in extended.


Also , if you think about it OpenXcom Extended features are probably what X-Com 3 would have had if they had made another game after TFTD.

At some point I will merge all changes for master branch. But first I need do some request for AndO3131 and merge my old script branch.
Recently I have lot of distraction and work don't move fast.

Yankes, could you please consider changing how retaliation: false works, so that it prevented retaliation completely? This would improve behaviour of non-alien opponents (cultists, men in black etc.), as they would never travel on alien ships.

Regarding that, could you make a pull request for the respective code into the master branch?
