It seems like I'm not getting merit stars or restraint medals. I've stunned 3 aliens in 2 missions, and killed about 13 aliens.

I've gotten the hammer, military cross.

I'm pretty sure Restraint takes more than three. ;)



The Merit star should be applicable if its one soldier with 13 kills.

Thanks Ivan.

There is the Honor Cross which is the "Hi, welcome to Xcom. Here is your medal for participating."  - it is awarded for a month of service.  So everyone should get one at the end of the month.  In my customized setup I renamed it the XCOM Service Medal.  But otherwise there isn't one of for just taking part in a mission.

Curious...Can one take a inprogress game using nightlies and merge in the Soldier Diaries mod.  I love the mod, can't wait to play it..but I have an ongoing game I would hate to end.   

Any assistance would be helpful.

Generally, you can take a save game from another build and play it with Soldier Diaries.  Because Soldier Diaries uses another .exe you may lose some features of the Nightlies.  You also will be starting your Awards and Diaries program fresh, so all of your soldiers will get no credit for what has gone before.  They will only start receiving awards for accomplishments going forward.

I might be able to convince the devs, but I've been busy with work. Last I spoke with them their stance was "great, let's sit down one day and go through the code together and see if it will work!", but I've yet to approach them ;p

I think I got the grompa stomp bug in battlescape.

I have Openxcom 1.0 and two mods, the orginal soldier diaries and that mod that compliments it.

My auto save and regular save always ended with a game crash, 'not working' message.

I eventually went to a a geoscape auto save. Game works fine now.

Unrelated to crashes,

Any chance you could make a medal or medals for

1) damaging an enemy without killing it, call it something like the assist medal

2) hitting the enemy without damaging the enemy, call it something like Futile resistence or plonk medal (plonk is the sound you hear when tanks square off, and one tank isn't penatrating the other tanks armor).

I would argue for these because they shows up in cases with heavy enemies like cyberdisk, mutons, Chryssalids, and sectopods. You  can have a character who kicks butt but doesn't get any kills. The second idea is the medal you don't want to get

For the crashes, would it be possible for you to post your save? That way I could try debug it and see what's going on. Also, is it only crashing at the end of the mission?

For the medals, 1) might be tricky to do, because I think the "hit" code and the "kill" code don't really talk to each other. If 1) can be done, so can 2), but 2) sounds a little bit like an anti-commendation: "way to go scrub, you did no damage". Perhaps 3 no-damage shots like that in one mission could get a "persistance" award ;p

I'm having trouble downloading any of the nightly versions from the site, have they been taken down?

If they have, you can download them from the first post of this thread. Mind you, the nightly will be outdated :x any new features since the date of my nightly will be missing from the official nightly.
