Saves from Windows and DOS versions of Xcom
« on: May 09, 2014, 06:24:52 pm »
Hello everyone!

I need to collect some statistical data about behavior of vanilla Xcom and OpenXcom.
I need to get gamesaves near July-August 1999 (in-game time of course)).

So, therefore I need:
1. Saves from Windows and DOS versions of Xcom near July-August 1999 regardless of difficulty level, your tactics and other factors.
2. Saves from OpenXcom near July-August 1999. Desirable if the save not require installed mods.

The result will be published later. I promise :)

I have found a floppy disk with original saves from 1996, but unfortunately it seems corrupted. :(
About OpenXcom saves - I am afraid that statistics will be difficult as behavior has continually changed throughout development. I have those saves but they are several months old and may not represent the statistics of the current nightly branch.

Attached you find some of my savegames, I have no idea where my saves from August are, maybe I can find them too.
the first 4 saves belong to the same game, the last (Sep1) belongs to another one.

Unfortunately this game saved in May 2000. :(
I need games saved in July-August 1999.

I found two more floppy disks at the attic which still worked.
I have no idea which months those saves are from, you'll have to check yourself. They are from the original DOS version.

Thank you, Ran, good samples.
Folks, if you have saved games near July-August 1999, attach them here. Especially if saved games for DOS and Windows versions of vanilla Xcom.
