Woah, woah, how far you made it, Sol!
IRL issues (my old laptop was stolen, argh) forced me to stay out of most net recources for a while but I am glad to see XCF so close to 1.0. Hope I will have some time to glance at new version.

Sorry about your laptop... But welcome back!

Last time I played XCF (six months ago, OMG) it was 0.7.5b - are those saves compatible with 0.8.9?

You'd have to check this thread, I really can't remember that far back... They should probably work, I think.

As car as I know the ES translation (of any type) has only started, so unfortunately you can only use English or Russian for now.
As for the item order, yes, they are grouped by type on all lists, plus you can filter them.

How can I change this hotkey:
MMB: Examine [enemy/item/armor]?
I do not have a middle mouse button! )

I also think that it would be a good idea to make the "run" button in the interface, instead of using Ctrl.
Thank you, I like this mod very much!

I don't think it's possible.
Why on Earth don't you have the MMB? Playing on Android?

Meridian will perhaps hear you out if you suggest a good way to add it.

I'm happy to hear that! This always help me go back to modding. ;)

I'm playing on PC under Windows XP
I have a mouse with two buttons and a wheel.
Yesterday I found a mouse with four buttons, but I can not figure out how to do it: (MMB: Examine [enemy/item/armor]). The cursor just goes from one agent to another and everything ...

Meridian will perhaps hear you out if you suggest a good way to add it.

It's a pity.
But I liked the idea of "running", when less AP is spent on running, but the agent is more tired. This is logical.
What I do not like is the limitation of 10 moves in some missions.
I also can not always understand who is civil and who is the enemy, and for the murder of civilians they give penalty points for the results of the mission.  :(
I really like the X-Files series, so I like this mod too.

The wheel is the middle button, click the wheel.

It's a pity.

What is a pity?
I didn't say anything yet... waiting for proposals...

Im stupid!  :D Thank you!

I understand that this is most likely just impossible to do, but I would like to have a "run" button in the tactical interface.

8) This limitation "bothers" me too! I don't have time to discover the people or the terrain...  :-[
Fortunately it's easy to modify!  ;D   ;)   8)

That's kind of strange - i personally never had a problem finishing the missions in less turns. Much less. Sure there's not something wrong with the way your're approaching the mission?

Yeah, I can't remember ever failing this mission. Not even once. So not gonna make it any easier, sorry :)
I know I've said it so many times, but this mission will be updated when it's possible.

I admit to advancing my soldiers with great caution (for all missions)!
My average for small missions is 15 turns!
The result is that after 100 missions I have on average 10 killed maximum.

In a mission, farmers are civilians, right?
I do not want to kill civilians, because big fines are charged for killing civilians.
And in 10 moves I do not always have time to stun them to take them alive.
Maybe I just do not understand something ...
