[2] OXCE v6.0 download & installation guide
« on: February 03, 2017, 08:42:42 pm »
The OXCE download package has the same structure as the vanilla nightly download (zip) package.
All installation instructions are also exactly the same.


Important:
- you don't need to install OpenXcom before installing OXCE
 - all you need is in this single package, everything else will only cause you trouble if you mix it together
 - video by ohartenstein23 showing how to install OXCE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-mhVSI9rbE (relevant part is from 00:00 to 03:20)


Here are the brand new download links for OXCE v6.0:

Since OXCE v5.3, it is possible to load mods and also vanilla resources files in 2 different ways:
1. from a directory (with many files)
2. from a single ZIP file

You should NOT use both approaches at once!

Below are three examples of vanilla resource loading (2 good examples and 1 bad example):
- Example 1: BAD (both standard/common directory and zip file)
- Example 2: GOOD (standard/common directory only)
- Example 3: GOOD (standard/common ZIP files only)
