Re: Can't train additional skills in training center - bug or feature?

There is no file to edit. Go to Advanced Options when starting a new campaign (where you can select a starting faction and other options) and select the option that enables you to pick multiple class abilities at each rank.

Re: LWOTC - No Control of Jailbreak VIPs

Is this the standard LWOTC/LW2 jailbreak or one from a separate mod? There's a known issue in which hacking the door does not automatically give you control of the rebels/rookies, but opening the door to get line of sight on them does work. If that's not happening, then I'm afraid I don't know what ...

Re: Appreciation from a new poster

It isn't on Steam because it relies on a custom version of the WOTC Community Highlander mod. Eventually the required changes will be available in the published beta version of the highlander, but that will take time. The mod is pretty stable and it's currently in a state of being LW2 with some WOTC...

Re: A bunch of questions/requests

1. Never had an issue with 75% shots. Lots of them hit. Note that the 75% you're probably referring to includes the graze chance. 2. You can enable the Chosen in the Advanced Options on campaign start. This is a recognised problem, though, so we'll look into an alternative approach for increasing fa...

Re: Can't train additional skills in training center - bug or feature?

The training centre is important for increasing bond levels and granting access to XCOM and pistol abilities. All of those are good reasons for getting it, just not early on. The pistol abilities are currently broken, but that is fixed in development.

Re: Can't train additional skills in training center - bug or feature?

The next beta will have a second wave option allowing people to enable this feature. But understand that it makes XCOM significantly stronger, although only if you can get enough ability points.

Re: Game freeze when meeting templar

This likely means you enabled Lost And Abandoned, the WOTC tutorial mission. The next beta will disable that option, so folks won't run into this issue.

The good news is that beta 1 is now available. The bad news is that it's not on Steam. For those of you still willing to download the zip and install the mod, check out the release on GitHub (download link is at the bottom). Make sure you read the release notes thoroughly, particularly the first par...

Re: Play testers wanted for alpha release of LW2 for WOTC

You will currently only get the Lost on abandoned city maps or if a relevant dark event is active. The sitreps are currently disabled. The Chosen are also currently disabled, although there is a private test build that has them active, which twitch.tv/Kaen_SG has been playing with. The faction hero...

Folks managed to get to the third month of a campaign and I don't think anything was blocking them fro...

Re: Play testers wanted for alpha release of LW2 for WOTC

You don't need my permission, but thanks for asking. Go ahead! Just keep an eye on the project's issues so that you stay abreast of any game-breaking bugs. Oh, and I'm aiming/hoping to get alpha 2 out on Saturday.

Re: Play testers wanted for alpha release of LW2 for WOTC

Thanks for trying it out. I don't think the captain should always mark on the first turn. It's too easy to game. He does mark, though.

Would you be able to raise an issue on GitHub for the crash and attach a save file? That would make things much easier for me.

Re: Play testers wanted for alpha release of LW2 for WOTC

Thanks. That is a known bug with the post-mission screen. Unfortunately, anything related to movies or graphics gets pushed back because it's way outside my field of expertise. I hope someone else who know what they're doing will be able to fix that.

Play testers wanted for alpha release of LW2 for WOTC

I have got Long War 2 [WOTC] to a point where I really need feedback on the game beyond the first month or so. I'm hoping that some of you will be willing to try the mod with the understanding that you're unlikely to be able to complete a campaign (or even get near to doing so - although I don't rea...

Many of the missions are playable right now. There's just an issue with drones patrolling and a failure of pods to scamper under certain circumstances. Unfortunately there is a lot of work (or at least time) that needs to be expended on other mission types, such as jailbreaks, retaliations and proba...

LWOTC rises from the ashes (kind of)

Just to let everyone know (and in an effort to get people involved) I foolishly attempted to port Long War 2 to XCOM 2 War of the Chosen. Surprisingly, I actually made some progress. You can learn about it on Reddit: Update #1 Update #2 Update #3 There's no guarantee at this point that the project w...
