    [1.65/X.CE V0.34.3] X-Division 0.99 Beta

    Modding psionic AP over unit AP does seem to freeze game indeed. I disabled Psionics modding aiprops.xml: For every unit that has PsionicPower something else than PsionicPower="". Mod like that: PsionicPower="" PsionicAttacks="" Enemies still seem to try Psionics, they just doesn't seem to work. Not thoroughly tested yet.
  2. Thanks for the info. I have no huge problem with that, some other people will complain a lot, that's for sure. As nothing can be done, you just have to accept some complaints Now waiting for v20 to get bigger font size to see if this is problem at all.
  3. Screen resolution 1280*1024 and game resolution 1280*1024 should give windowed, right? It does not. It seems that if vertical resolution is over 800, with 1280*1024 game forces full screen. Still that does not explain why 1280x720 gives full screen and 1280x768 Windowed...
  4. I did search but used just search box, not advanced search with default preferences. Funny those give different results. At least acceptably orking windowed mode has been basic requirement for PC games years. I don't think there is any point to sell this game retail if windowed mode is not working at least acceptable level. For me, that means getting little bigger font size on geoscape and menus. That shouldn't be too hard? With bigger text, windowed mode is playable. Edit: That font size issue seems to be discussed many times before. Hope they can get it sorted out. Edit 2: v20 seems to resolve font issue. I think I can live with windowed mode problems but many others sure can't.

    Wtf is this ?

  6. Exactly. This is quite serious bug but I hope it will be fixed on final release.

    This project is dead?

    Right. This was the point. While hardcore fans always know where to find development updates, there are many who don't bother to see if forums have them. These people may be lazy, stupid etc but they also buy games and bring money to this project.

    What I tried to tell is that news section, Wikipedia and Steam gave First Impression that game development is dead. Do not underestimate power of first impression. And those got updated right after I pointed it out, everything is now OK. Not updating news section for 3,5 months deserved something harder that really wakes up. Not just "you should update news section btw" etc. I don't think we have to wait next news update for months. This thread has already served it's purpose. Nothing to see here.
  9. When trying to run game on Windowed mode, it switches to full screen. I tried to run game windowed on all available resolutions and results: 1024x768: (game starts) Windowed 1280x720: Full screen 1280x768: Windowed 1280x800: Full screen 1360*768: Full screen 1366*768: Full screen +all other resolutions: Full screen Equipment to follow, this is clearly graphics related issue. This is strange behaviour, all other games will run windowed even when window size exceeds desktop resolution. Radeon 5700 series, driver version Catalyst 13.9 (latest), same bug with Catalyst 13.1, DirectX is up to date CRT monitor, resolution 1280*1024, 32 bpp, 100 Hz refresh rate Windows 7 64 bit I also encounter same refresh rate override bug that is described #4 http://www.goldhawkinteractive.com/forums/showthread.php/7633-v19-Stable-Geoscape-Ground-Combat-Display-Issues-Application-Switching-Crash

    Perfect! This project is too good to go waste. I didn't know that kickstarter has so rude update policy. If it had been a month or so, I probably would just point out that news page should be updated. But 3,5 months, I thought this project marketing really needed some wake up. And it got. You just earned yourself a customer This thread can be closed.

    I see you updated news page, excellent! Now if there is something you can do to either Wikipedia, Steam or Kickstarter page (to give hint this game actually is on development and not just another abandoned Kickstarter project, therea are many, you got the point), your will have more fanbase. I hope this game will be true successor to X-Com.

    Of course but think about those people who don't bother to check forums. "This game is abandoned, next game". There are many people who do like that. Competition is hard. Of course I believe, I have followed game development for long time. However many people are not like me. For not updating news section for 3,5 months, you really deserve some a** kicking To give you an idea, I try to degrade myself to be a person who just heard name Xenonauts. Xenonauts, a game? Google Xenonauts First result http://www.xenonauts.com/ Looks good, link draws attention http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2011/10/01/xenonauts-preview/ Wtf, 2011? (many people stop here) Well, there are news. Last updated may 2013, shit! (even more people stop here) Second result Wikipedia. In development since 2009, blah. Kickstarter 2012, blah. 2013 cannot be found anywhere. Third result Steam. Early access 2013 may (Steam users will NOT be convinced by that) Fourth result, Kickstarter. On that page I cannot see 203 anywhere. Most people do not bother to click updates section. What I'm saying is that you are giving very bad first impression. And if people get bad first impression, they go and don't come back.

    http://www.xenonauts.com/ front page. Link goes to Rock, Paper, Shotgun site, article dated October 1st, 2011. News section May? It's september now! Maybe developers do not want anyone to buy this game because whole project seems as dead as X-com project after all countries have signed secret pacts with aliens. We have have lot to do blah blah, people can always find updates and news from forums blah blah, piracy is ruining game industry blah blah... I don't know if developers really want this project to be very small and don't want any more funding for this game. If not, at least some news updates would really help to get customers and attention. With so many game projects really dead, many people don't bother to check forums on anywhere else is news section is so outdated. It would be shame if this project collapses just because developers don't have 2 minutes per month to update news section. You have been adviced.
