did you install an 8-11 nightly for OXC?
what i do to prevent any issues is do a clean install of the OXC 1.0 then do OXC 8-11 nightly and then install stats mod 8-11 nightly

No i didn't. Could you post a link to the 8-11 download nightly, not the mod, but the actual OXC nightly itself. When i go on the main page of the website it only goes back to nightly 8-27. I'd appreciate that thx.

Thx.

Maybe i'm installing it wrong. Now it's saying i have missing dlls.

I installed the 8-11 nightly, copied my data files in it and the nightly runs fine. Then i extract the mod openxcom.exe and dll files and i get that error...

What am i doing wrong....

No, it works with a specified nightly version, I can't say which one at the moment though. It's not a very old one, so chances are it'll work with the current nightly - no guarantees though.

Are you on Windows? If so, there's not a single conceivable reason not to use nightlies.

This is a cool mod, but wouldn't it be best if the exe changes were merged into the nightly builds via pull requests?

It would be, but the developers are more concerned about working the bugs out of the TFTD support before merging new features like this one into the mainline (rightly so).

That and they would forever have to maintain my code once it gets merged. Because sometimes I disappear for weeks at a time :3

Fair enough, I guess.

It's just that the number of mods requiring custom builds (making them incompatible with each other) continues to grow.

I'd prefer to not have to choose. ;)  But it is what it is, and I'm grateful that these mods exist at all.

Hi, I registered just to ask this..

I really want to get the stat-tracker/commendations mod working.  I understand this mod needs a nightly build of open xcom from July.  The oldest nightly available on the download page is october, and doesn't seem to work.  Can someone get me an older version of the open xcom nightly that works with this mod?  i really want to use this mod!

Basically I need this:  openxcom_git_master_2015_07_13_1222.zip
I can't find it!

Also, the mod page says the most recent version of the mod is from July 22, but I found some posts (and a download link) for a version from Aug. 8.  Does it matter which version of the mod I need to install, assuming I do get the right version to install it on.
