Ive been running into this issue every time Ive tried installing the 2.6 version. Ive done this with multiple clean installs with nothing that could possibly cross contaiminate between the current and older version of the game and while using the latest version of OXCE

Every single time I try to run the mod from the game selection menu I get booted out with this error saying "Make sure the mod/game has been installed correctly"

I feel like Im banging my head against a rock as nothing I do seems to work whatsoever and this might be a bug

[04-11-2022_15-06-40]   [ERROR]   During linking rulesets of armors:
Error for 'STR_SECTOPOD_ARMOR2': Number of battle corpse items for 'corpseBattle' does not match the armor size.

Even to be safe, I downloaded the previous version of OXCE, and also the installer along with the portable version of both and it STILL spat out the same error

the hell do i do

sorry to say, but something is cross contaminating... this error comes only if the game is 100% absolute certain about it

either not a clean XCF install
or not the official XCF download
or some other mod conflicting (no matter how cosmetic-only it may seem to you)
or manually edited files
etc.

also, please attach the whole log file, not only 2 lines

My guess would be the resound mod.

Fraaaaaack, I never considered that a sound mod would affect the game like that. Okay, fantastic. It runs now. Thank you!

I found out that after turn 20, all agents become visible to all enemies. It explains a lot, and it totally sucks in terms of gameplay. I really wish xcomfiles didn't have this weird timer.

Not entirely accurate, see https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,9051.0.html

1/ first of all, the aliens DO NOT see your troops after 20 turns. That's simply not true and never was.

When the cheating is activated, the following happens:
- the passive aliens (e.g. leaders inside of the UFO) become active and will be forced to scout, i.e. eventually come out of the UFO... but they do this BLINDLY and RANDOMLY
- all aliens will prefer combat if possible... they will not try to escape or to set up ambushes so much
- your units will be marked as "previously spotted"... which is DIFFERENT than being visible... aliens will use this information for some minor calculations, but almost all of them are just cosmetic and you will never notice any real difference... with two exceptions:
- the first exception is Psi attacks, because they can be performed without actually seeing your units... if you want to turn this off, there is a standard mod called "UFOextender_Psionic_Line_Of_Fire", which will require that the alien must also see your units to perform the attack
- the second exception is Blaster Launcher


Depending on the mission this might be considered beneficial to flush out the last hiding enemies. You can change the setting in AlienDeplyoments, see:

https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php/Ruleset_Reference_Nightly_(OpenXcom)

-> cheatTurn

It also tells you where the aliens or other enemies all are, which is so helpful if a mission goes that long that I would never think to turn that feature off.

No, 'bughunt mode' and 'cheatTurn' are separate mechanics that just happen to be both set to 20. Don't know if there's any deep thought behind this.


As to the aliens seeing or not seeing your agents, the prevalence of snipers and spotters in XCF makes 'having been spotted' and 'being seen right now' a lot less of a distinction than you might think after reading Meridian's post.

I don't know much English. The translator translates this paragraph ambiguously. But as I understand it, I can exhale and not worry too much about the 20th turn?

I can only say that I've been playing OpenXCom Extended for several years now, also modding it of course, and I still don't understand how this feature works... And frankly, I never cared. :)

What I can say from observation is: if this "bug hunt" feature happens, then you have already won. I can't remember a single time where it actually helped me win.
