  1. Release Date & Work Tracker

    Bet I get more than you and much better quality even when I am hostile, dpelectric.
  2. Release Date & Work Tracker

    It's word for word and face it; though you may not like it it has been released and I'm glad. (Chris just said it)(in all intents and purposes the 31st they stop development and for 2 weeks will have it ready for reviews. So its done, released! ) It is a very good game as it is and as I've said before can't go on forever trying to make it prefect for everyone. This game is less buggy and more enjoyable than most AAA titles like watch dogs. Not to mention it has far more complexity than Xcom EU which is quite buggy and still has bugs. And I never threw words into your mouth my good man from Bulgaria, Proud supporter no matter what. I just quoted part of what was officially stated from the start of this post word for word and I did that intentionally so you could get a grip on yourself with the : "they don't have to ever release it that's fine until it is running smoothly, they can release it in ten years from now and they can keep rebalancing it and fixing it and polishing it forever.
  3. Release Date & Work Tracker

    "the game will launch on the 30th of May" There it is you just quoted it. Stop denying it and face the truth don't be a toady and don't argue semantics. At some point (what its been patching for over a year now) and as he's said its been 5 years in development, at some point they have to fly from the nest and why shouldn't it be today as planned. It is the release date even though they will and should keep fixing, polishing and balancing long after and as most developers do any way after the release of their game. Let's face it there are many here who would prefer Xenonauts never to be release but only as something happening in the indefinite future (something that never happens) and they can keep patching and balancing and adjusting the game to consult all tastes and claim that it is getting to be a game and will be a perfect game...when its released-nonsense.
  4. Release Date & Work Tracker

    So tomorrow is the said release date. Why is no one posting about it? yeah, I know there is more work to be done like all games after they are released (but can't work on them forever) and nonetheless it is tomorrow!
  5. I had a crash when shooting an alien with a rocket launcher. I believe he was dead and the game froze for a few seconds, then, crashed to the desktop. I shot him north.
  6. Sorry, but this is one of the worst updates as far as stability goes I've played in a long time. Have had virtually crash free games for about six months now. But after playing the first ground combat I had two crashes one was when I was healing someone with first ad and the other when I threw a smoke grenade in front of the alien ship. Whatever was fixed seems to have broke the game in a far worse way.
  7. Same thing happened to me tonight. I was healing someone and it crashed to the desktop. Also, it crashed a second time after throwing a smoke grenade in front of an alien ship. This was supposed to be a fix for crashes? I haven't experience crashes like this in this game in a long time. Was better before the hot fix. Mine was also the 22.1 hotfix.
  8. GTA V - Most expensive game in history

    Waladil, have you played any of the other grand thief auto games? It gets old fast. In GTA V the camera is as bad as it was in previous ones. The way the cars handle is as usual terribly and unrealistic (not even a good arcade driving experience) the missions are very repetitive, same crap of chasing and getting someone and getting away from the police-how many times in how many missions and how many GTAs do we need to do this crap! As for the Characters they are one sided common place scumbags.
  9. GTA V - Most expensive game in history

    I got the game and you just described exactly the reasons I should have never bought it. Seems all the "gamers" that includes everyone and their grandmother went out and got it and love it. All those who own consoles or used this game as an excuse to buy a console are suddenly coming out of the woodwork, doing something they do maybe once or twice a year that is: play a video game. I've played maybe 3 missions since release and its the same boring sensational crap that excites that average fool we saw in all the other GTAs just better graphics. GTA, will litter the stores and online places for months now with advertising.
  10. Beta!

    ok, that's nice to see. I was wondering if they were ever going to do it because it seemed a lot of people in that post thought it would be better to leave it black.
  11. Beta!

    I'm not referring to the UI. (User Interface) Icons and buttons info, stat, screens. Just the background the sea in the geoscape. Such as ocean colored Blue or Blue/green as apposed to the way it is now, no ocean just back. It was discussed in an old thread.
  12. Beta!

    Are you still considering adding a different geomap sea with an ocean blue back ground and will that come in the next few updates or be the last touch?
  13. Steam Keys - How To Claim!

    Just want to thank you Chris for taking the time and going through the trouble to get us our keys and thus expediting the whole process. I was worried if you left it up to Desura, I'd never see my key or the game on steam. downloading it right now. This is so much better and faster for me to download with steam and I'm hoping some of the patches and updates can be managed through steam as well. "Check file integrity" should be helpful feature in making sure all the files are there. It's neat seeing Xenonauts on steam congratulations and good luck! I'm just a little worried about the ignoramuses trolling who have never played anything but the latest in the StarCrap series and games like Company of Heroes oh and COD. "the graphics look like playstation 1" is what I read from some idiot in his post.
  14. Build V18.51 Hotfix 3 Released!

    So I've got to trust that Desura will have my key and send it to me in a few days after the launch. We'll see how that goes
  15. Build V18.51 Hotfix 3 Released!

    So you may put the game up on steam tomorrow. I would like to download it to my steam account. How is this going to work for those of us who have pre-orders? Will you email us the keys or should we download it from Desura and then add it to our steam games list? Or perhaps it will already show in our steam library for us to download as a the user names is usually the same as the users email address.
  16. Yeah, me too I'd like a key to add to my steam account.
  17. Build V18.51 Released!

    Was going to say so myself.
  18. Yes the tactics are very good and everything else you mention that you heard (I don't know from were-a loser of this game?) you are wrong about as well. The problem mainly is that you can only have one base and a few things missing or different about the strategy layer from the original. With some of the nexus modes though it can be quite as good as they original (though not quite the same) and very challenging in a fair way. Here is not the place to ask, as many in this forum feel they are too good for it. Even though they haven't played enough of it nor tired any of the mods. That said xenonauts has the potential to be every bit as good and in many ways better especially if you like the original.
  19. v18.4; It froze after trying to quite/save (iron) from my first crash site mission on ground combat after the first turn. I just wanted to test and see if I could quit and save the game and then load it I had taken my first turn disembarked all my men from the carrier, hit the turn button waited a minute or so then pressed esc to bring up the main menu, clicked quit and it stayed with the menu window trying to quite out of the game for about five minutes... I then hit control escape and that did nothing so I ctl alt del and it crashed to my desk top with a general run time error. All the while I was able to move the cursor but couldn't click on anything.
  20. I just retested it to see if I could reproduce that same bug and sure enough on the first ground combat after the first turn when quitting the game on iron it froze on the main screen after clicking the quit button. It was a different map. Both are on USSR.
  21. Build V18.4 Released!

    Someone poke the server guy at Desura and wake him up. I think he was up late drinking again.
  22. Build V18.4 Released!

    No, bate. No hook. Just what I know and have experienced in having a steam account. If anyone wants to fear steam or be paranoid that is their business... and their lose. Some choose not to go to their mail box: could get spotted by the neighbors or hit by a car or something. Anyways the sooner it gets on steam the easier it will be for me to download I'm sure what with the problems I'm having with Desura.
  23. Build V18.4 Released!

    Glad to see you're about to go on steam. I have it and love it. And there are those who don't (the ignorant ) they are those who have never really given it a chance. At first I hated it (it was pretty bad in the beginning) now for a gamer its a boon. Plenty of good indie games you don't even know about. Sales that are amazing 50%, 75% off good games that have only been out a month or two. Cloud. Quick, Convenient backup system. Nice interface. and a lot more. Those who don't like it think they know better but they don't. It does not compromise your computer in any way You can run games or mods with it off. You don't have to have it running whenever your computers on (though I'd prefer it to be on most of the time) Its not spying on you or your computer or your internet use. It won't interfere with other programs, it won't damage your operating system or change you computer settings. Its just there to allow you to organize your games and find good deals on good games. Steamworks: (which allows you to create mots and download them to your games. Why anyone would prefer Desura garbage over steam makes no sense.
  24. Build V18.3 Hotfix 2 Released!

    Has the V18.3 hot fix 2, ground combat. enemy turn screen freeze > corrupt save problem been fixed with an updated hot fix yet?
  25. weird. I remember in some games I've played falling through the map that's pretty cool too. Don't worry I know your sane I know you weren't taking anything I wasn't either. You should have just taken cover behind the larger header font and stayed in the first column and used your machine gunner.
