I did not use this mod. Is it compatible with X-com files?

It won't crash... but it's not really compatible.

It only requires LOS on 3 specific psi weapons... XcomFiles has many more than that.

Checked on the enemies does not affect. Is it possible to somehow adapt this mod under the X-com files?

Yes.
You can add more psi weapons in that list.

And what file is responsible for the psi weapon of enemies, I can not understand.

 - type: ALIEN_PSI_WEAPON
    hitSound: 36
    battleType: 9
    tuUse: 25
    flatRate: true
    recover: false
    LOSRequired: true

Tried to do so, but nothing has changed.

I think I understand the reason. There is a psiVision parameter. It reaches 40 for some enemies. Most likely this allows them to take control through walls. I propose to revise psiVision, significantly reducing it.

As far as i can tell it was fixed. Maybe you used an earlier version while adding new sprites?

Maybe... But indeed it was still botched in my version. :o

There is a mission in which the X-com finds the refuge of a scientist and must be protected from M.I.B. For some reason, instead of M.I.B., I had Black Lotus with laser weapons. ???

Hmmm, never had any issues with this... The mission always spawned correctly. But I remember a similar problem with another mission (Hybrid Controllers) and I couldn't find anything wrong with its code either. Maybe there's something shady going on in the code I'm not aware of.
I can't see anything wrong with scientist's house, either:

Code: [Select]
  - type: STR_DAVID_VINCENT_HOUSE
    despawnEvenIfTargeted: false
    objective: 3
    spawnZone: 0
    raceWeights:
      0:
          STR_MIB: 100    <---- MiBs


Another question: can something be done with dishonest mind control from aliens when they use them through walls. Today I lost my base when the sectoids seized half of my soldiers on the first move.

Who on Earth told you that alien invasions are fair?! :o

Anyway, such a change would be call a "cheat". Please don't try to sell this as some sort of "fight for fairness". ;)

I do not think this is a cheat, but rather an unfounded advantage to the aliens. However, it is easy to change, this is not a problem. I am interested in another question, is it possible to make some X-com ships invulnerable to interception, for example, ordinary cars. Just a little weird that some kind of van might be the target of an alien battleship attack. :P

The UFO isn't attacking the Van - it's most likely attacking the plane that carries your agent to the target airport. Then again, why shouldn't it attack a van?

Well I do, so that's the end of it.
I don't even understand why you'd think it's "unfair", cosidering you can do the same damn thing.

Sure, cheating is easy. :P

I'd also like such a feature (for a variety of reasons), but no, it's not possible.
For now, Krautbernd's justification seems good enough.

I think since the last update (openxcom_xfiles_0.9.8h1) some names and flags of new hires don't match. See attached sample.

Absolutely nothing has changed here for a long time.
Either I missed some OXCE change, or you have a mod conflict/bad installation.

Hi Solarius,

No mod conflict or bad installation as far as I can tell. For a test, I re-installed the mod on an empty folder, and on a fresh game, got the same problem with the first two agents.

Also some missing strings:

Also some missing strings:

1/ nationalities/flags is an OXCE bug... will be fixed soon

2/ missing strings in an XCF bug
