Re: Melee Spawn bug

Welcome UFO veteran :) It is never too late to discover new XCOM. You are a true example that this game is immortal :) Just do not try to play it in old UFO style staying in open - take cover. And grab my Sequential Overwatch on top of Long War :D https://www.nexusmods.com/xcom/mods/704 And the spaw...

Re: Rebalance: Is this fairly acceptable as Long War?

Well, it is definitely 'unbalance' rather than 'rebalance' :) However if you fail each one retry of LW on Normal there is sth or a lot wrong with your tactics/strategy rather than with soldier stats. You are bumping aim (probably to hit more often) and defense (probably to get hit less often). But w...

Hmm - are you using LW for MAC installation pack? It is MAC-ready as far as I know.

Re: Squadron attack coming soon

Oh, so you're saying that the one that i've been using and that i downloaded from the Drive link you've provided me via PM is too old, and that the one in Nexus is newer with bugs corrected and solving my translation problems?

Re: Squadron attack coming soon

Tested the mod. Bugged out my game until i uninstalled it in PatcherGUI. It looks like it freezes the Geoscape map after confirming the loadout Hmm, could you elaborate? :) Which of the mods have you tried?

Re: Squadron attack coming soon

ATTENTION TO ALL TRANSLATORS: This multiple Interceptors per battle mod also has decoded the pilot ranks for us to translate which gets done by installing the mod in PatcherGUI along with some other text files, in that way the game/mod will be completely translated and our job would be done. Just s...

Re: Getting big ships down

Squadron size is subject to limits - it is in description and Readme. Include Lt - and you can send 2 ships. Include HPTM and you can send 3 ships, Maj. for 4 and so on. I bet your Firestorm is piloted by at least Oberst :) Good guess? So he can command a squadron of 5. Until I manage to spawn sensi...

Re: Mod request: Mouse control on black market

Hmm, holding right / left arrow on keybard works just fine for that purpose. Also "a" and "d" keys should work. Unfortunately there is no "code" for 'Mouse_hold_down' so that option in not moddable.

Re: Getting big ships down

szmind, you say it was a bug that most UFOs got destroyed, and you fixed it. That's good, but why would that happen if your mod wasn't somehow messing with weapon DPS/DPH to begin with? Does your mod in any way change weapon/armor/pen values? If it does please let us know and state that in the desc...

Re: Getting big ships down

As written in description. It is the ship with highest aggro. If all have the same aggro then the first leader is chosen randomly. The list of selected ships is auto sorted so leader is always on top. When during fight you withdraw leader or it is destroyed the next ship in line becomes new leader. ...

Yes, I confirm the problem and that it is fixed. You can download updated version. I was delayed by discovering another bug - how is that nobody has noticed possibility to toggle in a jet with 'transfer' status :)

Re: Getting big ships down

I underdstand the observation 'occuring after installing mod :) But you know - there is not much time since he installed the mod so I take the margin for this 'many situations'. I rarely shot down small UFOs with EMP - they usually get destroyed with higher tier weapons (like EMP). Also I have not t...

Re: Getting big ships down

Thanks, that worked! But somehow, with your mod, all the ufos I shot at are destroyed, not just downed. Did I do something wrong? I`m using EMP weapons. I tested it on various situations. Ufo-destructions happen in 90 % of the time. Well EMP does not change the chance for UFO to be destroyed or not...

@Szmind, I want to give your mod a try. One thing about the installation: In what position do I have to copy the language lines into XcomStrategyGame.DEU? Just to the end or else? Not copy, but edit. So search (using ctrl+F shortcut) each "m_str...=" and replace anything that is after &qu...

Re: Squadron attack coming soon

This sounds really interesting, but I don't quite understand what the mod actually does.. It says "sending multiple interceptors at once", but are they actually all engaging the UFO at the same time? The extra jets are not actually visible, so it's just their names shown with health bars?...
