READ THIS README, ESPECIALLY THE FAQ. IT EXPLAINS SOME MAJOR CHANGES FROM VANILLA. This mod makes hundreds of changes, large and small, to the vanilla version of the game. It is harder and longer than the vanilla version but gives you many more tools to combat the alien threat. Some of the changes in this mod include:
Most of the specific changes will be detailed in in-game text. Many game mechanics have changed, so read perk, tech and item descriptions closely! They may not do what you expect from vanilla.
Perk trees for all classes are in the file Long_War_3_perk_tree.jpg in your XEW directory, or here.
Tech tree is in the file Long_War_3_tech_tree.png in your XEW directory, or here.
A Long War wiki is hosted on UFOpeadia, here. (It needs contributions!) (Art in this section by Dana Henderson/lfish)
You must have a legitimate PC, Mac or Linux version of Enemy Within to play this mod. This mod is for games with the March 10, 2014, patch, what we're calling Enemy Within Patch 3. The game version is still listed as 401776.
An Enemy Unknown version of this mod (with fewer features) is available in the Files section. It has not been updated to work with EU patches 5 and 6 (too much work), so you have to take extra steps to roll back your XCOM EU installation to patch 4, with this tool. For help with installation of the EU version, check out Phwop's tutorial, here.
If you get multiple CTDs upon boot, or when starting the first mission, or you start with only four soldiers, or see graphical glitches with some of the new weapons, try the following steps:
If you are getting slowdowns in plays or CTDs when loading user settings, try the following:
If those steps don't work, please check the extended troubleshooting file in your XCOM directory and any bugfixes (on the Nexus forums). If your issue isn't listed, we want detailed feedback on all of those things on the Long War EW feedback forum. Make sure you post your difficulty level, any Second Wave options you are using, and whether you started a campaign under this version, or a prior one. If you have a CTD, please follow the instructions in the readme for reporting crash logs to us.
