Re: Trouble identifying enemies from sound

Identifying aliens by sound is a skill that comes with playtime. It should be noted though that disguised faceless do not make any noises, and non-disguised faceless can only show up on advent-spy ambushes in havens (later in the game). Likewise, I also don't THINK chrysallids make noises, except wh...

Re: Meanwhile in Crash City

I'm wiping all XCOM 2 files off my machine.... Right off the top of my head, if you're getting a load error loading a save game, either a game file or the save is likely corrupted and the game can't finish and has recognised it. Can you load any other save? I'd keep the save and remove and reinstal...

Re: Meanwhile in Crash City

Welp. It's a few days later. I went ahead and validated my game cache, nothing seemed to require updating though. Loaded up the mission again and insta-crashed a few seconds after loading. Finally decided to restart the mission entirely just in case that save was corrupted; got a few turns in and......

Meanwhile in Crash City

Good gods I've crashed eight times tonight on a single mission (data tap). It's like the more I try and push through the crashes, the more the game crashes. I seriously hope I've not somehow corrupted my save... I wish these crash reports told me anything informative. What do I even do with this inf...

Re: On the oddities and failures of Kill Zone/Covering Fire

Yeah, I suspect Kill Zone is a red herring and this is actually the bug regarding pod behavior when their pod leader is panicked in a concealment-breaking ambush. Any overwatch shot would have failed to go off.

Re: On the oddities and failures of Kill Zone/Covering Fire

I recall there being a bug where if you flamethrower-ambush a pod to break concealment and you panic the pod leader, the pod 'scampers' before the game registers that you broke concealment, and thus you don't get reaction fire on the pod because you're 'still concealed.' I also have this vague recol...

All of my classes wear a primary color (which is also their weapon color) with a secondary color based on their specialization.

Re: Is there a way to resurrect 0 rebel region?

No, soldier liaisons add 5% to recruitment per soldier rank, officer has no effect on that. I'm not understanding the '5% (per rank)' part of that statement. So if you have a squaddie in a 0 rebel region, does that mean there's a 5% chance per Some Time Period to recruit someone (then further dice ...

So, is this the right understanding of the current Solace bug? That's approximately accurate, yes.

No, both versions of the ability are available as of both 1.3 and 1.4. The only real way of knowing is to read the text of the ability in the training menu.

Re: Temporary solution of Solace bug

Which version of Solace caused this bug? You may know that currently Psi Ops still sometimes roll the old version of Solace (because the game still has it as a prerequisite for Bastion) despite there being a new version of the ability since the 1.3 patch.

Some of your points can be done by editing INI files (ergo you can "do it yourself"). Not all of them, but many.

Re: 1.4 Some feedback notes

If Advent has a 30% chance to hit you, it means all their rolls in the 20-30 range are grazes. If you turn the graze band down, all those shots become full hits. So it's not at all surprising that you're taking more wounds. From what I understand, if ADVENT has a 30% chance to hit you, it means all...
