"Site-Recon" map/script doesn't start...

Might be a very long shot to get some support for this but here goes anyway! Out of nostalgia, i had just re-installed EU/EW along with Long-War (v1.0) & the whole thing seems to be working fine except for one single gameplay event -- loading up Site-Recon special council mission. The basic cycle wo...

Re: Avatae timer not getting reduced after blacksite mission

Gotcha.. besides, with the upcoming WotC expansion there's still a good chance Firaxis already patched this (and probably many more!) issue.

Re: Avatae timer not getting reduced after blacksite mission

Wouldn't it be better **IF** any of the Pips-Animation cycles could always show up though? Not sure about the coding technicalities about such "flaws".. but as of now.. it's counter-intuitive to NOT get proper & continual HUD feedbacks in these particular cases even when rare. Please do your best, T...

The Forge deeply remote EVAC zone...

Just completed my first since v1.4 -- I really don't get why the entire Squad now has to go alll the way back to the initial DropZone for evac (unless i'd be chased by some re-inforcements -- which didn't happen in that case by error?). That's a clear _"StopWastingMyTime"_ flaw or some automatic con...

Re: Shinobi treason !

I can confirm this "Sword slice sound" continually occurs at the beginning of some missions in my games too.

Re: I wonder... how malleable the AWCpack ini is?

In theory.. SPARK units are "isolated" from the regular Armory cycles by their DLC status. They basicly hook to the gameplay Engine with "integral" functions while jiggling with procedural assets of their own. So i'm not surprised most AWC elements can't flow into that code-bottleneck to unlock Spar...

Re: aren't supply raids just too hard to detect?

Although the "AmbushTroop" mission does inflict some lower Strength effect when Advent moves such groups around. But, as per OP theory.. since v1.4 i also noticed a much higher rate of undetectable Raids of any kind. It's more like a surprising coincidence when we do. I believe the newest Vigilance ...
