Released Mods / Re: [COMPILATION] Final Mod Pack (FMP)
« on: June 18, 2019, 01:55:57 am »
Please help me!
I want the MIB to become stronger gradually during the game (I have a lot of problems in battles because of their tanks, the game because of this is not fun).

Instead of modding the tanks out, have you considered heavy explosives? A few of those always did the trick for me.

Watched a few minutes so far -- I can't help but notice that the Final Mod Pack does not seem to be installed : )

Open Feedback / Re: OLD MODS ON POST 7TH MAY SET UP

I see, so it copies mods into the data folder on demand for older openxcom builds, mimicking the new mods folder structure.  It will still suffer from the old problem of file overwrites (if two mods have the same filename or if a vanilla file is overwritten, removing that mod after installing it will break the game), but I can definitely see how the tool can be useful in this transition period.

For myself and anyone else using older mods, I would recommend this tool.
what is it and what does it do?  if you post an opaque exe in a public forum without explanation, only really naive people will download and execute it : )

are there any chance to let the modders post own´s strings to be translated in transifex??
I don't believe there's any barrier - transifex is free for open source projects.  Just sign up and create an account, then post the strings for your mod.  they won't be included in the main openxcom translation files, but they shouldn't be included there anyway.  you can distribute the translations with your mod yourself just fine.

Old mods don't need a metadata.yml to work.  Just decompress them into a subdir of mods/ and they'll work fine.

and yeah, a blank for master just uses the default: "xcom1"

see https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,3617.0.html for details, especially the "Additional info for mod authors" section.

Troubleshooting / Re: Graphics overlap
« on: July 07, 2015, 12:17:16 am »
I had trouble with graphics overlap on OSX.  I fixed it by converting the offending images to bmp with gimp and the auto-convert-and-resize plugin.

The same images had worked fine on Linux.

It would be much more feasible to make the final mission a three-parter (for the reasons you described -- there is no current way to have a non-cydonia one-time mission.)

if someone wants to make the design a bit realistic is to remove those boxes, which will reduce cover but they make no sense either way.
ya know, those aren't boxes.  they're the tail end of the craft.  go up a level and you can see the roof connecting them.

Version 1.5.4 is online.

Playthroughs / Re: Let's play OpenXcom (Final Mod Pack)

me dead : (  at least me no am zombie.  maybe me am brain feels not good.

PS: Btw. anyone knows what were the sounds at 58:40 and 01:01:00? It doesn't make any sense to me...
yeah, I was wondering the same.

on another note, though, that one guy could have missed the snakeman standing near him since sniper rifles have an accuracy penalty at close range.

Troubleshooting / Re: Installing older mods on the new nightlies?
« on: June 28, 2015, 03:06:06 am »
you just extract them to a subdirectory under mods instead of into the old data directory.  they should need no internal reorganization.  did you move the folders inside the mod around? the file it's looking for is Resources/Magnum/Magnum.gif, but in your screenshot I see Resources/Magnum.gif and no Magnum subdirectory.

Would scenarios also work for different TERRAIN or MAP files or other files or Ressources?
Mods can refer to one another's *files* without any problems.  For example, if some enabled mod (yours or anyone else's) has a file named MAPS/URBAN18.MAP, you can refer to that file in your mod as MAPS/URBAN18.MAP.  This is just as it was before when everything was in the same directory.  The only problem is with referring to another mod's sprite indices.  If you declare the extraSprites in your own mod, even if the images themselves are coming from another mod's files, that will work just fine too, though.

Translations / Re: Terror From The Deep added to Transifex

Is there a private build where we can test the translations?
you mean the nightly?

Maybe so. I just didn't want to change things unless absolutely sure it's necessary. I'd like to hear more opinions first.
After seeing how effective flamethrowers are on sectopods, I sold all my lasers and just took a few flamethrowers on all my crafts.  As they currently stand, I consider the entire laser lineup to be fairly useless.  I'm just glad when the aliens are wielding them because it means they'll miss : )
