Don't worry, Steam version works just fine.

Can you give us a screenshot of where did you copy those files?

Yes, it is useful.

You should not put the entire steam directory into openxcom/TFTD.

Only selected sub-directories should be used, as written in the README file.

Thanks. I'll try rewriting the folder like in the image and see if it works.

Hey, sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I have recently tried the program again with the edits you suggested. Still no progress.
