Released Mods / How do you install the final modpack?
« on: January 13, 2023, 08:03:36 pm »
I installed regular openxcom - not the extended version. I got the newest version of that. Then I got the newest version of the final modpack and put that in the mods folder. It doesn't show up as an option to play in the dropdown. I dunno what to do. I looked up the tutorial and I did what they did exactly. Maybe it's a version issue? If so what version do I use?

The X-Com Files / I can't take these cult manors

I can't approach them because they destroy me. So I can't kill them and they keep spreading and I lose. And it sucks. It's a terrible game mechanic. I'm out.

The X-Com Files / Crazy Temple Mission
« on: December 26, 2022, 05:13:27 am »
I fought it out with the temple dudes to get the golden statue and I lost two guys in the process. Then when most of the enemies are dead I start to move in to get some more ammo from my ship and i lose a guy to that alien electric zapper dude. Then I go into the temple looking for him and he zaps two of my guys on the way in from behind cover. I can't even see him. They die. So now I got three guys and I'm going and I pick up a pistol on the ground because I don't have a weapon for one of my guys. And then my dudes start losing their freaking shit! They can't handle it anymore and they drop their weapons and start running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Two more of my guys get zapped from nowhere. Then I run back out to my ship and he's there being a major fucking tool. I take out some hi-ex but before I can arm it my dude loses his shit again. And I keep ending the turn and I keep losing all my time units. And he's on the other side of the ship shooting at me but he keeps hitting the ship because a nerdface. So I give up on the hi-ex because I only get one turn of sanity every so often and you only get half your time units back. So I take out the pistol and when I finally regain my senses I pop out and take a shot and hit him right in the dome. The next shot misses. I'm out of time units standing out in the open. I figure shit, I'm dead. And then the mission ends because he passed out and I won. Rip to Fruitcake who had 93 kills and was finally killed by a fuckyoulaserbeam from nowhere :p

The X-Com Files / How do you get guns for the little bird?

I have this helicopter and it's got 4 gun mounts but I don't know how to get guns to put on it.

The X-Com Files / Red Dawn Cult Manors are crazy!
« on: December 24, 2022, 09:24:08 pm »
I have armor, and dragonflies, experienced soldiers, and blackops and uac weapons. And I can't do shit about these things. If you attack it you get blown up by like 5 grenades instantly. The one I'm trying to assault now has a tank in additional to all the other bullshit. My dragonflies are frequently getting blown out of the sky on the world map when I'm trying to do regular missions because I can't escape from their jets. It's just nuuuuuuuts. I can't do shit. It's game over :p

Hey there, I appreciate all the devs hard work on this game. I'm trying to install it on linux. I downloaded it, ran it, and it's looking for the game files.

As per the error message, I tried adding game data in usr/share/openxcom/
then I guessed maybe it should be in the 'data' folder so I created that, and that didn't work either. usr/share/openxcom/data still didn't allow the game to find the installation.
