V0.98c work fine !  :)   Thank you very much ![/color]

Good!

- did you change the game's home screen (colors/texture)? The one who proposes "new game/loading/options/...) ![/color]

I included an experimental Geoscape palette just to try it out... It might be that.

- in the log there are non-lethal alarms. Can we fix this problem?
Multiple lines with the same text:
   [WARN]   Image C:\_GAMES\OpenXcom_XFiles\user\mods\XComFiles/Resources/FactionsPack/MenInBlack/bigob_MIB_POWER_ARMOR.png (from lodepng) have set incorrect transparent color index 255 instead of 0

Thanks, fixed.

Well, by then you should have better guns, agents and possibly hybrids to help you deal with such annoying missions. The armored coat looks cool at least and has a RL movie reference.

Well, it's true. Still, there was no advanced infiltration armour, so I made one. (okay okay, Dioxine made most of it lol)

Sorry if this should be redundant, since i'm still on 0.9.6, but would you mind refactoring/resizing the "aliens attack financial district"-mission? I like big maps just as much as the next guy, but is it really a good idea to put two or three high-rise buildings in one map, seeing the impact even the one in the syndicate map has on game performance? At least on my system the map more or less constantly lags while scrolling or when movement or shooting of any kind is going on. Might i suggest either lowering the number of potential buildings, the height of said buildings or overall map size?

In my experience they are very soon reduced to Swiss cheese, but I am open to opinions.

No, that's seriously not how it's suppose to look... :o
Looks fine on my side. Must be some problem on your PC.

(Also no need to remove the pics, they're relevant and not too big)

You didn't upgrade properly... this is caused by outdated xcom1 ruleset, more specifically interfaces.rul

You're very good at it!  :) :)
The installation was correct... at first!
But by adding French language files I took an old "interface.rul" file in \standard\xcom1 folder !
The line was missing: "backgroundImage: BACK01.SCR" !
I'll have to be careful with the following updates!    8)

Sorry for the inconvenience!  :-[
Big thanks at you two !  :) :)
Now work fine !

New version 0.9.8d released.

0.9.8d:
- New Cydonia stage: Chryssalid Hives.
- New mission: Cybermines.
- New tank types (tritanium rockets).
- New Ufopaedia articles.
- Some enemies change stats underwater.
- Retooled the Power Suit and the Flying Suit.
- Changed prerequisites for the Alien Electronics.
- Light Fighters now yield some Alien Alloys.
- Fixed some palettes (by Meridian).
- Fixed The Root of All Evil mission appearing more than once.
- Fixed drone resistance to E-115 damage.
- Fixed Power Suit sprite.
- Text positioning fixes.

It's a bit too big for a minor "patch", but too small for 0.9.9... So I guess I'm falling into Piratez nomenclature slowly. :P

The more I play the less I believe it's all made by independent developers.

Another update already? Changes in the cloudy olymp of the END GAME that I haven't even gotten close to yet?

Thank you! Will I need to edit my save to get the Cybemines Mission?

No need to edit anything unless clearly stated otherwise - it will just have a chance of appearing from next month if conditions for it are fullfiled

New version 0.9.8e released.

- Updated to the latest OXCE.
- Fixed the Engineer interrogation.
- Fixed some issues with the Tritanium Rockets.
- Fixed Female Farmer point value.

- Minor fixes.

This is a critical update, as it fixes the Alien Engineers. (You want alien tech, don't you?)

What if you could train robots in the empty hangar? Just the suggestion.  ???
They are quite bulky but let's say there's a lot of the spare space.
It may need an engeneer or a scientist allocated too, but there's still an operator in the barracks.

UPD The last OXCE is laggy, I'd suggest take previous version before code is revised.
Nevertheless you are a bit hie about the latest OXCE implementation. There should be tests done before.

UPD2
X-COM: UNIT tech previously researched appeared in the lab again

UPD3
Cyberweb fortress is awesome

Is it really avoidable with similar scope of modding?  :D

Since Dioxine made quite a number of updates since I last tried Piratez, I decided to try it out again and found myself tied in a prolonged campaign, which really prevents me from trying out your latest late game updates. It is hard to have so many good mods around! :)

Can you be more specific?
What/where is laggy?

Yes, they should just use 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, etc.
