I was lurking the forum for a since 2015 and I barely registered in 2017, although I became active early in 2018. (I didn't notice this thread exists!)

I am Mexican, I am 20 years old and I am a law student (my profile picture is one of my favorite memes related to my career and with XCOM, it is a nuisance that I can not read). I know, it's rare for a lawyer to try to work in a game.



I discovered this game when Xcom 2012 came out, it really caught my attention, but my PC could not support  it. So I looked for alternatives and found UFO: EU for an emulator. I still remember that in my first game everything went to hell in May, after a failed base defense mission. Then I found the OpenXcom forum in 2014 through the UFO: Alien Invasion forum. I started playing it and it made me very happy. :') For a long time I was unware about the the existence of the forum, I only used the old page of mods, I found it by chance. I was following closely the work of Liberation in Battle For Mars, it is a pity that it has been forgotten for so long.

Recently I started to work more actively doing mods for this glorious game. It is a pleasure to be part of one of the most active communities and even more, that the work of everyone here persists so much, 8 years after its birth.

Greetings, and welcome to the site! I didn't get around to welcoming efrenespartano or Badfella, and they have already made excellent contributions! I have no doubt we'll be seeing more of each other around here!

this is one of my favorite games. Interesting is its uniqueness. In particular I use it for additional study of foreign languages.

Hello, I'm Panzerschlag. I grew up playing this game, and it was one of the first games I can ever remember playing as a child; I was excited when I found that this project was completed as I stumbled across it shortly after its inception. I have modding experience with a number of other games, primarily with German to English translation, music, level design, and graphics design in the Emergency game series. I also have a bit of programming know how, but only enough to be dangerous. I have quite the project that I am already underway with, and I'm always open to lend a hand with anyone else that needs modding help!

Hi,

I just only want to say hello and big thanks to all great developers and moders. Because I have no programming or graphics skills or new mod ideas I only play openxcom, but a lot. Although I play mostly original xcom campaign with oxce I'm going to play and get into some mod heavily in near future.

I'm enjoying openxcom very much and I consider xcom to be best game ever. I play it also on my phone and tablet. I'm really surpised how great and funny could be gaming on such a small device.

Hi everyone!

I'm Lance from Hungary, I develop software by day. I started playing Ufo Defense in middle school (20 years ago?) and have played on and off since then. I've installed OpenXcom when Enemy Unknown 2012 came out - because the demo crashed my laptop and needed a fix - and never looked back.

Some stats:
Ufo Defense games started: probably double digits
Ufo Defense games finished: 0
TFTD games started: 0
Apocalypse games started: 1-2
Apocalypse games won: 0

I'm very experienced in the early game :D My mid-game falls apart, thus never making it to Cydonia. Hopefully this current one will be different. :P

Hi, name's Ray James but you can call me Rj or James or whatever makes you comfortable. In study programmer, game dev and musician. I have been gaming since I was 5. Used to play lots of games, mmo's and other stuff like Dead frontier, Multi theft auto (Gta san andreas multiplayer mod), Garena early call of duty mw, skyrim and the fallout series.  Started playing xcom 2012, xenonauts then after my PC broke I searched for anything xcom like that I could play on my android phone and that's where I found about Xcom: UFO defense and then found openxcom and this forum. I always like games that are moddable it always allows me to modify my chars and a little bit RPing but it also prevents me from finishing the game due to my constant seeking of mods that can add stuff, improve immersion,combat,blablabla and whatnot.
