I'm running off a Samsung m.2 drive and save and load time was effectively instantaneous. Now the game will hang for 5-10 seconds when saving or loading to file.

I wrote about this a couple of years ago. This is from statistics overflow. Try in "options.cfg" set "soldierDiaries: false". Perhaps it will help.

He replied a couple of posts ago that it was resolved after a reboot.

Any ideas? On 2.1b + OXCE 7.3 all good.



UPD: My bad, must also update X-Com X-Files Resound Mod. After that - all good. Thanks again for amazing mod!

version 2.2 with opexcom extended 7.4 (started brand new game with [submod] XCom Files Arsenal Additions (ver 0.7.7 EXALT Escalation+) but then disabled and modified save file) on third difficulty level, i got already 4/5 mission spawned! Lost a van, sadly..

And when in batlescape i invoke the jukebox, the track playng has a strange name, but then i if pick "battlescape soundtrack" it disappears; in another misison if plays another, if i chise the vanilla one it disappears again

It needs an Improved Lab, and you probably don't have it?

Sorry, I can't decipher what you mean and whether you have a problem or not.

And when in batlescape i invoke the jukebox, the track playng has a strange name, but then i if pick "battlescape soundtrack" it disappears; in another misison if plays another, if i chise the vanilla one it disappears again

Same... Is this a bug report?

oh i started a game with aforementioned mod, but then disabled it and loaded the save, and some time after i load there were 4/5 missions spawning almost altogether, it is intended?

Yes it is intended, i was running a game  with a more ooenxcom extended relase, might because of that?

Hi.

I have problem with mission regarding Ancient Alien Ship never appearing in game - I´m in year 2001 and currently assaulting alien lunar base but Dimension X stuff after destroying Cyberweb battleship in dimension X (during 1998) just wont appear. It is not critically important, but I would to like to get it somehow. Any ideas what I did wrong ? Can I force this mission to appear somehow ?

Another thing which is probably not bug, but still... Capacity of LIGHTING transporter is really small, while optically this craft can definitively carry more than 8 person team (in original UFO it had 12 cargo capacity) - could you perhaps increase it at least to 10 ?

How should I know what kind of mod you're using and what it does?

....what? Sorry, I can't understand at all what you're writing. But if it's about OXCE releases, just get the latest.

This mission has been removed from the mod years ago. It's still there in the files, but will never happen.

I guess I can :) I'll think about it.

Small bugreport. A snakeman has 3 fatal wounds and 100% health on 11th turn of an UFO assault. How can it be? X-COM Files version is 2.2, the UFO is a Supply ship.

May have found a bug. When I moved over my save files from 2.1 to 2.2 I see that some of my operatives have commendations for missions they have not taken part in. I see aquanaut and spacer awards even though I have not come across any of those missions yet.

You didn't update OXCE as required by XCF 2.2.
