Right now no. But at some point when I will add ammo for Psi-amp then we could have bit more variety in psi attacks.

I can work round this crash as I'm virtually finished this game but I noticed it while doing alien base 8-GAZER but it also seems to happen afterwards(reserve save). Any time you access the ufopaedia within a particular item, I checked about 5 or 6 at random, it crashes the game with an error message(crash.png). I did update to oxce+ v3.10a of 31/01/18 but I updated from the geoscape before the alien base mission.

Did you forget to copy the new common and standard folders when updating OXCE+? Those contain necessary rulesets to run the executable and its new features.

I might have done something like this when updating as a fresh install of the latest oxce+ seems to counter this glitch but as I said I'm on the point of starting a new game so it doesn't bother me too badly.

You don't need to start a new game over this; just remove the old common and standard folders from your current install and replace them with the common and standard folders from the clean install.

You didn't update the data files.

In this case, the exact file you didn't update is /standard/xcom1/interfaces.rul

Thanks, I overwrote that file with the latest one and everything's back to normal.

Bug report. Not sure what is responsible, posting here because I'm using OXCE+ 3.10a. Piratez mod 0.99i1, nothing else.

The Werewolf in the craft cannot be attacked from 12 to 9 o'clock positions. Says "there is noone there". From the 2 o'clock position you can attack them. Problem seems to only appear when the Werewolves have been woken up from stun. Regular spawned Werewolves could be attacked from all angles. Save attached.

When attacking for example from origin tile (22,34,0) ... where "Saucy Rat" is standing ... at any enemy, the valid melee range calculation fails.
This is caused by an object on the origin tile, see attached screenshot.. I can't tell you more what kind of object it is... use MapView to find out I guess.
This (invisible? walk-through-able?) object is hit along the LoF to the enemy and thus you cannot attack... basically same as if there was a wall between you and the enemy.

Maybe Dioxine can shed more light on the map definition...

Sorry I have a bug in tactic mission.

These are issues with original TFTD game data files.

Hopefully, when OpenXcom 2.0 comes out, there will be an universal patch for that... similar to the existing patch for UFO Defense.

In the meantime you can download a work-in-progress version here: https://openxcom.org/downloads-extras/
(click on OpenXcom TFTD Patch link)
It fixes some issues, but not all.

PS: the errors are not critical, game recovers and you can continue playing...

Thanks for your quick reply !
This fix is already active in my games.
I don't think that's the cause of the error.  :'(

PS : Work fine in Nightlies version (openxcom_git_master_2018_01_28_1443)
