Hi,

I'm having the same problem as Sat. The paths are correct, yet the game constantly displays "Save and Restart" prompt.

Hi,

Same problem here. I copied the whole game folder to the internal, and external sd, with the openxcom data. I tried both paths, but the app cant see the game. I am using a Xiaomi Redmi 1S with 4.4.4 Carbon rom. Can you please help me out with this? I love this game. :)

Problem solved. I downloaded the data zip from here: https://trashbox.ru/topics/50564/openxcom-0.9-beta
It works now.

I don't want to risk downloading the game from an unknown source...

This is not the actual game, this is just the data files, that is required for the Android apk to run the game. I found this link somewhere in the Openxcom Android wiki page.

Bump for help updating to nightlies?

I tried manually updating the data files from the newest Android port with those from the current nightly, except I run into the "specify folder directory" dialog in an infinite loop.

I suspect there's something significant that changed in the official nightly, as the app still enters the directory loop after I replaced the data folder with the one created after a fresh install and patching from the app.

I don't think that the Android version can handle other data files. Probably the apk can use only the files that was used to build it. Sadly the Android version is updated very rarely, and it is still not really playable. I hope once we can play in Android.

I wish I knew what is involved in compiling for Android, or I'd gladly update the port myself.

When you try to delete a savegame, you cannot, because you cant right-click :D

Not really playable, you said? I finished it several times, first in HTX One X, then on HTC One, vanilla and with Final Mod. Tested also on Moto G2, Samsung Galaxy Tab7 and some exotic MediaTec and it was really playable on all those platforms.
Sfalexrog did really good job porting OXC to Android, it's only pity that it's updated so rarely.

You can use any file manager to do this. Personally I have never needed this option.

It's indeed perfectly playable. I'm rather inexperienced with XCom and am far into my first real playthrough (now fiddling around with mind control and hover tanks), playing on my Xperia ZL (Android 4.4.4) and haven't encountered any real problems so far in many hours of playing time. Especially the controls are nearly perfect, fitting the touchscreen like a glove. My only gripes at the moment are:
  • Lack of force firing when there's no line of fire
  • The "sticky button" bug in menus like the craft inventory screen, where sometimes accidently every piece of an item is put in or out. Can be annoying but won't break anything
Otherwise I'm most happy with the android port and eager to finish my first XCom game with it :) I hope this version will see a bright future and hopefully gain greater popularity!

Really? On my Redmi 1S the always closing without any error message. It happens randomly in 1to 10 minutes. What can cause this? I will see the logcat after i got my pc back.

Which android do you have? KitKat or Lollipop?
Is OXC istalled on the SD-Card or in the internal storage?
You can try logcat, but I'm afraid that all you find will be segmentation fault.

The files exists on both drives. I tried both KK and LP. The 1.0 version crashing if i start a new game or load a saved one. I have to use 0.9...
