I was using the OXCE Version from 2019 (with X-Files mod). Today I downloaded the Nov. 2020 version and simply overwrite all 2019 files with the new ones from the downloaded archiv.

Now I have a strange error.

[21-12-2020_20-34-25]   [ERROR]   Error processing 'STR_DAVID_VINCENT' in units: Item STR_STR_DESERT_EAGLE not found
Error processing 'STR_FEMALE_CIVILIAN_CITY_GIRL' in units: Item STR_PAINKILLERS not found
Error processing 'STR_MALE_CIVILIAN_CITY_BOY' in units: Item STR_PAINKILLERS not found


Sounds like a problem with the Mod. But I do not understand why the Mod matters.
I did not updated the Mod! An old Mod version should work with a new/fresh OXCE version - in my understanding.

So what do I missunderstand here?

We improve OXCE constantly and add ruleset validations almost every release to improve the quality of mods.

That causes mods, which had an (undetected) error to stop working after the upgrade. The modders then update/fix their mods and release a new version that's better. Win win.

I see. That sounds like a good solution.

I have the lates X-Com Files 1.7b and lates OXCE. It starts now.
But my savegames are not displayed in the game menu. The save game list is empty.

But the sav-files are still in ~/.local/share/openxcom/x-com-files. What can do to bring them back in the game?

The mod was deactived. I can't understand why.
XCOM2 was load by default.

After activating I get an error again.

[22-12-2020_21-42-07]   [WARN]   disabling mod with invalid ruleset: x-com-files

Mod size limit in XcomFiles 1.7b is 3000, not 2000.
Just install the mod properly and don't mix it with old versions or anything.
It's really easy.

In Android version, UFO patch is included, TFTD not.
In all other versions, they are both not included.

PS: so exactly the same as in OpenXcom zip distributions

New functionality in scripts:

Code: [Select]
          begin; #stat new scope with new variables
            var int i 15; #new variable in the middle of script

            loop var zz i; #repeat this code block `i` times, `zz` will have values from `0` to `i-1`
              if eq zz 6;
                break; #break out of loop block
              end;
              if eq zz 3;
                continue; #skip rest of body of loop and repeat it from start with next `zz` value.
              end;
            end;
          end;

I added too new function to multiple function in script for unit stats, idea is that in may cases you want add some value to some stat and you are not interested in current value, now you need use `getX` and `setX` to set some thing, now I added `addX` that add to value of stat.

Big request to return the option - difficultyBasedRetaliationDelay. Or tell me a way to completely avoid the Retaliation missions in the first month.

What is "ambienceRandom" attached to? Why is he inherited by the next mission in two-tier missions? If this is intended, then it is very bad. Maybe it should be hard-tie to "terrains.rul", and not to the mission?
There is a bug in version 6.9.6. In version 6.9.1 - no.

It's attached to terrain.

There is a bug in version 6.9.6. In version 6.9.1 - no.

I cannot see any difference between 6.9.1 and 6.9.6.

And yet in 6.9.6. "ambienceRandom" and "ambience" are carried over from the first mission to the second, which is not in 6.9.1 version. Moreover, if the second has its own "ambience" - then both work. I just put it before the fact.

И тем не менее в 6.9.6. "ambienceRandom" и "ambience" переносятся из первой миссии во вторую, чего в 6.9.1 версии нет. Причём, если во второй есть свой "ambience" - то работают оба. Просто ставлю перед фактом.
