Xcom Long War on Android?

Post by Kbeam »

Hello, everyone 😁
I am a massive fan of the Xcom games.
I have all of them, including the latest Chimera Squad game on PC.
However, my true love is Xcom Enemy Within with the Long War mod.
I have it installed on all my PCs and I do replay it now and again (on Ironman, of course 😁)
I also bought the Android game from the Google Play store hoping the mod will work on it too.
However, I cannot see the file structure.
I think the file structure is included in a compressed file:
main.17.com.tt2kgames.xcomew.obb
that is over 1GB large.
I would love to know if it is possible to open that file on a PC, substitute the modded files and repackage it.
Thank you in advance.

(Repeating my response to your email so others can see it)

I'd be stunned if anyone got Long War to work on Android. We never did any work towards that and I don't know the first thing about compatibility. Long War required a small change to the .exe file on install. We also made tons of changes to upk and config files (which are substituted for the vanilla ones on install), and some UI changes as well. No idea how Android handles it. We haven't touched Long War in years, but there is a community still working on it and they've done some amazing things -- search for the Long War Rebalance mod. Best of luck.

Hi, thanks. I guess the most viable option is the steam deck
