Installation Guide

REQUIRES A COPY OF X-COM: UFO DEFENSE (1994); available on Steam and GOG
Provided file is Windows installation. To play on other platforms (Linux, Android, Mac, iOS), you need to download a version of OXCE engine for your platform from here:
Openxcom.org

Warning: while OXCE supports Mac, XPZ does not due to using .gif files. This is on purpose (On both sides, Mac deprecated .gif format support). Mac users are advised to either find a way to convert them to .png, or, better, get rid of their thrash hardware.

- Run Windows in Administrator mode
- Unpack the mod. It will create a complete Openxcom_XPiratez folder with all the files that you need.
- Copy files from your original "UFO: Enemy Unknown"/"X-Com: UFO Defense" folder to the "OpenXcom_XPiratez/UFO" folder.
- Run by OpenXcomEx.Exe

for further info, take a look into readme files in the release package.

DISCORD CHANNEL got NUKED by the Discord company on unproven claims, blanket ban on over 200 users. I advise everyone to leave this unreliable platform.

This mod is not noob friendly. Unless you do exactly what developers want you to do, reading wikipedia is mandatory, doing specific research path, strict gameplay loop with no choice on how you play, knowing things you wouldn't have known ahead of the time (Not selling certain items else you're screwed), then you will have a bad time.
Developers advertise 400 hours of gameplay, but no one mentioned how many of those hours you will be having fun, if at all. This all seam like a giant hamster wheel with massive grind. Maybe if game was trimmed down a lot, to let's say 40 hours, you would have a much better experience.
If I had to recommend this game, I would recommend you to save your 400 hours on other things and just avoid this. This mod requires you to read an essay and memorize it before you can even attempt to play this, even FTL on hard wasn't so cruel to me. I know that this mod is free, and that is good, since no one would pay for this experience. Good music, good atmosphere, but requirements to know things before attempting to play this mod ruins the experience, better avoid it.

P.S Reading wikipedia and doing exactly what developers want you to do is not mark of intelligence. How can you expect a person to play the game when they don't even know what games rules are or how it supposed to be played. Also Dota 2 is a live chess game, where you do need to use your brain to play.

this review made my day, it cracked me up XD , "Also Dota 2 is a live chess game, where you do need to use your brain to play." got me grinning but the best part was the specific research path one. just as a example, do you want to follow the higher powers? , chose one of 4 paths that enables 4 different playstyle focuses which gives you different units, vehicles, and research focuses from magic power to hypnotic strippers and power armor. Do you want to allow male troops? Lesbian superiority movement? do you wanna be a mutant communist rebellion (most powerful building in my opinion) Yes, reading the in game database is a MUST, the game tells you so deliberately in the beginning, it literally says READ OR DIE!!!! How the hell are you gonna lead a rebellion against alien overlords on a planet that was conquered hundred of years ago if you don't bother reading intelligence reports? heck, even if you are behind in research, reading things can give you an edge, like the AP transfer from the runt outfit, I sneaked up once on a nazi tank with a fusion torch and refilled the ap with the runt suit ability since you need like 90% ap to use it, and the thing absolutely MELTED the tank, when nothing else I had could even scratch it. yes the game is insanely complex but it also allows for amazing emerging gameplay. If you don't like that maybe just go play dota 2 and use upgrade path guides for the current meta, unless that is too much "specific pathy" for you. XD

Game is in constant developement and bad versions happen, lately it's the infamous ninjas on M-versions which have been sufficiently nerfed only by N1. Combined with bad RNG of a run (moreso when selecting high difficulty without experience) it could combine into a frustrating run. As for "do exactly what developers want", it's baffling because I have no slightest idea what the player is intended to do and in what order, the developement goals are 180 degrees opposite. Making mistakes is also part of the game, this is why the original was called "enemy UNKNOWN".
