I am in the polishing stage of a different project, so the new version is still the old version, on the first page of the forum post. When I get back to this, I will add a commendations section in the ufopedia and import all of ivandogovich's pages! And maybe fix the bugs :x

- "So what's in the new version, does it work better?"
- "Nah, but it's prettier!"
- "But... Shouldn't it work?"
- "It should be pretty!"

Jokes aside, your mod looks really interesting. I wish I knew c++ to be able to help. But then, between that and modding, I'd never get anything done..! What's your other project?

I started my modding ventures with Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. I've modeled body temperature, and now I've returned to it to model windchill. I am quite pleased with it, as it really makes the world feel alive.

As for your jokes!! The only bugs left are immersion breaking more than anything. Stats are tracked correctly, but (some rarer) commendations aren't given out correctly.

I didn't know of that game. It looks interesting.. But I already have no time just playing OpenXCom ;)

I did not mean to offend with the comment above, it's just what went through my head when you said you'd work on the UFOPaedia and maybe fixes. Is your code on github? Maybe if I focus on one small issue, I could make sense of it, instead of trying to read the actual OpenXCom (which proved to be too much to handle). Would be an interesting way for me to get on github too.. hum..!

Let me know if you think I could help.

No offense taken! My code is on github, but the remaining bugs by me too obscure for someone to drop in and fix them easily (as pretentious as that sounds). The first post of the thread has a link to my github; feel free to take a look and contribute in any way you want, even by adding more commendations!

Hey Shoes, i think the auto equip is now just the standard UI option in Openxcom and that the exe of your mod is overwriting that part.

 No worries anyone dude, thanks for your reply and thank you for your hard work and awesome mod:)

My mod is now up to date with the latest code base, but I couldn't find any conflicting windows or buttons. If you could provide a screenshot, I would be better able to address the issue!

Also, my mod is now up to date. No actual changes though. First page has been updated to reflect this.

edit: Actually, I've bundled the 3 translations people have sent me over the last few months. I should have gotten those in sooner, but I never forgot :3

Shoes ,

A couple of quick questions :-

I use the nightly builds before commencing a new game. These include a new exe file , as does your mod.

A) If I use your mod over the current nightly gitmaster exe , does it revert OpenXcom to a base 1.0 version or are the changes from the nightly version still available?

B) Can you confirm that if I use your mod and I then subsequently overwrite your exe with a new nightly build exe , that I then lose the use of your mod.

Many thanks

DavidR

A) I have two releases of my mod, one for nightly and one for 1.0. I updated this morning the nightly branch, so it is quite fresh. If you update your game and use my outdated .exe, your game will be outdated.

B) If you replace my .exe with a new one, it will be as if you're not playing with my mod anymore (the save files however will not delete any information, so you can come back to it later, or even wait for an update). You can also turn my mod off as any other mod but keep my .exe, and the stat tracking code will continue to work and be displayed; you simply wouldn't get any commendations for them.

Hope you like it!

Kind of a weird question, but how does it play with different OS? I'm using Linux and have been playing 1.0 (there's no nightly released for Linux as far as I know). I have started looking into compiling my own version using the nightly though, since there are a lot of updates to take advantage of.

But, if it were as simple as getting the exe, that would mean it's OS independent, which it doesn't seem to be. Or is the compilation process making other files than the exe that are the OS dependent ones while the .exe isn't? As you can surely tell, I'm confused :P

Hm, you could try and compile the source from my github: https://github.com/Shoes01/OpenXcom/tree/alpha_release

Other than that, I can't really help you :D

It's a very cool project, hopefully we'll see it implemented soon.
