and I fourth this!

Just for making a classic game more modern, easier to use, and moddable.

Feel free to share why you're extending a thank you ;p adds more fuzz to the feelings.

I thank the devs for taking care of modders in their endeavors to faithfully recreate the game!

I came across Xcom in the early 90s and fell in love with it. Ever since, I would fire it up once every year or two and lose a couple nights worth of sleep shooting down UFOs, killing aliens and researching their technology :)

This project with all the mods makes my favorite game even more awesome and since the amount of time invested in a project like this is monumental, i figured the least i could do is create an account and voice my appreciation :)

I always come back to x-com sooner or later. Now I can scroll with the mouse wheel and hundreds of things like that. Also there's mods, lots of them.

I've also meet a bunch of other x-com enthusiasts.

Thanks

My brother and I discovered this on the Amiga on *floppy disk* .. it was a flakey copy, which didn't install to hard-drive correctly, so saving games didn't work.  End result was many marathon sessions over the weekend, leaving the machine on overnights. It was so so much fun.  ..after a while I bought a legit copy, and many many more weekends were absorbed for years to come.

Now Open XCom, combined with my Steam purchase, and the amazing Amiga music set from Fenyő's sound page make this better than I ever could have imagined.  The Amiga version didn't have darkness, nor animation, on the battlescape.  (Man darkness is a pain) ;)  Today I completed the game for the first time.  Amazing stuff.  I can't thank you guys enough for creating this.  ..now I'm going to tweak the options and dive back in.  {manic grin}

Thanks OpenXcom team!

Me and my best bud at the time rented the game for Playstation. Never played anything like it back then, and we were completely amazed by it. Bought the game later on for Pc when I got my first computer. Think it was 4 diskettes for TFTD, but it was only the cd-rom version that had the intro in motion :)
The manuals was also great back then. I don't think the first game came with anything special though, but both TFTD and Apocalypse had some great extra lore-books.

Still such a great and unique game. All three of them actually.
