Re: [OXCE+] Meridian's resources and mods for (not only) X-PirateZ

Hi Meridian,
ty.

I don't know which feature exactly I'am trying to activate. I have read all of changelogs but here is so many changes, so I want activate all of this but I don't know how. I try to use two download links with .exe file and missing strings and try to install it (copy .exe file in X-PZ folders and put "missing strings" in mods folders) but I think what this is not work so easy.
Can you explain how I can enable all of your features, at least everything what you use in your LP?

Sorry for my bad english, I don't know it so good.

1) Install X-Piratez as normal
2) download the latest OXCE+ exe from this thread (executable only, you don't need the strings)
3) copy the exe over the one from X-Piratez (overwrite it)
4) Done!

The .exe in X-Piratez is usually the version of the engine you want to run with the mod, Dioxine packages the latest version with which the mod is compatible, so most of the time you won't want to replace the included one.  The instructions are correct though if, for example, the latest version of OXCE+ includes an important bugfix or feature you want, and Meridian doesn't say it's not compatible with the latest version of Piratez.

BTAxis,
I do everything like you say but I have no any Meridian's new features from here. Nothing work.

ohartenstein2,
So latest version of OXCE+ just not compatible with X-Piratez 0.99F.1? Or I don't understand something?
Or this is just example?

The newest one here in the thread should be compatible and has some bugfixes you probably want.  Running the exe should have all the new features, you don't need to enable any mods.  Which features specifically aren't working?  Some of them are ruleset features, which means they need to be enabled by the mod you're running, and that's a matter of Dioxine including them.  Most of the GUI features and bugfixes should work just fine though.

The mission info is an optional feature... the modders first need to write that info... it doesn't just appear out of nothing :)
I'm sure it will be available with the next piratez version.

Meridian, can you say something about your intentions to create an android version of OXCE+?

Hi, nice release as always. I know TFTD support is not done yet, but i want to report a small bug with the "small rank icon" feature. I think it works in TFTD too, but the soldiers name is not moved to the side, so there is no space for it. The text is overlaping the icons.

I would also like to make a little request. I made it sometime in 2015 on the openxcom bug tracker already, but it has not yet been implemented. The EU pedia shows craft weapon ammunition since 2015, but TFTD pedia don't. There is enough space under the weapons stats to fit craft weapon ammo count in. Why should TFTD not showing ammo when UFO does?

Thank you in advance!

hi,

are you aware, that at the linux download location

 - Executable(s) for Linux: https://lxnt.wtf/oxem/

every build reads "oxce3.5-plus-proto-<hash>-<date>-<os>.7z".

if it wasn't for the date and creation date of the file, I wouldn't know which one to pick, as the version number is the same for all. Maybe you didn't intend this.

in any case: thanks for the pre-builds!!!

greetings!
