    Xenonauts-2 March Update

    Congratulations. Maybe a contest on the forums so we can name the kid?
  2. I love tapping into Xenonauts every once in a while (I don't want to go too far as I want the "freshness" of a new game once the final version comes out), but being an old timer, I didn't realize how many Indie games are out there these days...I just can't stop picking up games! Darn that Steam Xmas sale...and indie gala...and indie royale and don't get me started about the humble bundles!! Help... Oh never mind I'll just hope back into Osmos to mellow out... or maybe Don't Starve, or Project Zomboid or...

    Xenonauts 2 - Feedback & Priorities

    Playing a bit more but have to run. Fairly smooth for me on 1280 x 800 resolution, beautiful setting. Higher resolution makes seeing things a bit hard. Haven't tried fantastic setting yet. - Shooting sniper rifle while adjacent to enemy seems to always miss and graphic of shot is way out of line. (Ignore - I just reread OP) - End Turn button not always showing up (possibly related to 1024x768 resolution). - target bulls-eye seems a bit touchy (Ignore - I just reread OP - sorry) Monitor 1920 x 1080 System (old, I know!) - I5-2400 CPU@3.10GHz; 8GB memory DDR3@ 664MHz; Nvidia GeForce GTS450 (1GB memory) Windows 10 Pro

    Xenonauts 2 - Feedback & Priorities

    Getting used to things..Overall like the look; performance was working fine. Not sure what key I hit, but I lost most of the Head's up display (things like the end turn key, soldiers list, etc.. Tried hitting keys to get things moving but ended up with a mess and had to Cntl-Alt-Del out.

    Xenonauts 2 - Update

    Wow... I'm another who only pops in occasionally now and then.. It's been months now, but ... WOW... a nice surprise..I'd vote yes for X2... ready to pre-order, kickstart, whatever! (now I need to see what else is going on here...ie. Pathfinders..) consider this my belated YES vote.
  9. I find it funny that this game is "broken"...some say it's too hard, some say it's too easy, some say it's too long, other's say you can only win one way, others say it can only be won a different way.... why can't the developers keep working on this for the rest of their lives..... I've gotten 50+ hours so far (40+ with the final version) and have had a great time with it. I will likely play again with the CE at some point... No game is perfect, but this game sure is fun to me! (Ok, I did find the ending to be a bit of a let down... ) Edit - I really appreciate the talents of the modding community on this game as well...

    To buy or not to buy

    Funny....I think it does look really good as is... (and of course for variety, there's the mods). Art style is very subjective of course.
  11. I agree that the "cut content" and "the bugs" section are pretty aggessive and not particularly objectively written. Otherwise overall decent review. (although to call it unbiased is silly, obviously it is based on your personal bias as all reviews are... that is not a bad thing though).. EDIT - relates to original review, not the quote...just agreeing with the quote...

    Development Diary / Post-Mortem

    A lot of developers/Indie Groups could learn from you on handling the Community side of their projects. You've done a great job in the Forums of keeping us fans (many of whom remain hidden in the shadows) informed and a part of development; which justifies our faith when we pre-order games. You've always keep your cool in the Forums, even against detractors and that helps set the tone for others. I really appreciate the Development Diary, it was a great read. Continued success! Edit - I suppose you could update the goldenhawinteractive.com web page...
  13. It is now on the Steam Launcher with an 80... Edit - got rid of my messed up quote..

    Out on GOG!

    Nice to see Xenonauts on GOG this morning!
  15. I agree....I got my money's worth well before the game's final release. I am glad it is getting good reviews.... I am also glad my damn soldiers keep dying because I expect this to be easier then that other XCOM (firaxis version). I can't wait to hear what's in store for the future! Thanks to all who worked so hard on this project!

    Thanks for the GOG key! Also, noticed this is now #10 on Steam...

    Out on GOG!

    I think that is good (the GOG sale keeps most folks buying sale items only). I also agree it would be nice to see a more indepth review on GOG (but I am only early in the final release and feel any review I give on the final release now would be labeled "fanboyish"). Still seems like the talk on GOG is positive for the most part (in the announcement post at least).

    broke into top 20 on Steam ...

    Purchasing options and parity

    steam version can be played without going into steam (once downloaded..). For me, I will likely buy another copy on GOG down the road (on sale)... I was quite happy to pay full price + a few years back...

    Tips and guides?

    Quickstart guide is useful (if you don't want too much help right off).

    Hotkey for next soldier?

    I constantly hit the Tab key by mistake....hard habit to break..

    Hotkey for next soldier?

    I believe you use the mouse scroll wheel (unless it's changed lately)

    Out on GOG!

    too late now I think.... . At least it is on "sale" ... discount off the new release price that is... That always helps

    Out on GOG!

    Agreed... also with the Steam Sale likely to start up this week...timing may be off, but fingers crossed it does well!
