Without trying to say something bad about the game or about the players: I haven't seen a game, which would spawn more myths about its mechanics than Xcom.

So, I'm not too sure what's going on with this, but after installing everything, both including and excluding TFTD, I'm getting this error.

It says you are missing file UFO/UFOGRAPH/SPICONS.DAT

Can you check if this file exists?

No kidding. I recently came across my old pro-tips forum post and was appalled to see just how inaccurate it was. And I was a veteran player of several years when I posted that. Modding has really helped me to understand the game in a way that playing it could never teach me.

X-Com Pro-tips!

That would be in the original? I can check. If not, can I snag the one from tftd, or are they different?

Yes it is from the original.
And they are different in UFO and TFTD.

Playing XPirateZ, spotted strange bug: flares, when thrown and missed, sometimes vanish in nowhere.

It's a feature, some just fail to ignite.

I honestly can't tell if you're being serious.

Ah. I understand. Unclear ufopedia description though.
In fact, great idea.

He's serious.
The feature though is completely redundant/irrelevant IMO, feels like it's done only because it can be done, no other reason.
But maybe it's just me...

Is this about the throwExplode/specialChance triggers?

While it has no meaning in the terms of gammeplay (maybe aside of "not again!" screams) dont forget about immersion in the world of piratez, with all that rusty spaceships and sabres&blasters.

When route is plotted for a kneeling operative, TUs to kneel again are not shown. If this bug was reported previously, I haven't found it.

Example. A kneeling operative has 60 TUs, aimed shot takes 42 TUs, kneeling takes 4 TUs. Buttons are pressed to reserved TUs for kneeling and aimed shot. In the plotted straight route 2 steps are shown green — with 48 (correct) and 44 (incorrect) TUs left. If I try to walk him along this route, he stops at 48, and 44 is shown as yellow (correct).

Observed on OXCE builds 5.5.1-d20b54d00 from June 14 and 5.5.2-ccf1eee4a from June 23.
