Help with getting community edition working

Recommended Posts


I am trying to install the community edition of Xenonauts. I have tried both the forum edition and the steam edition.

I start the game with the load order unchanged from the default and add no other mods or changes.

I have tested several things and the only thing that breaks is hiring any number of scientists.

This removes the current research project and makes the scientists unavailable and the project never completes.

I also let the first project finish and then started another before hiring more and the same thing happened.

Is there a known cause of this?

Sounds like something went wrong in the installation. If you have the game on Steam, just use the community branch there - don't install the manual download from the forums. With a manual installation, things could go wrong, the Steam install just works.

Delete the script cache under %HOMEPATH%\AppData\Roaming\Goldhawk Interactive\Xenonauts\internal , then reinstall X:CE from Steam (use the Verify Files option) and see if it fixes things.

Thank you for your help. This seems to work. still happens if I fill the lab but otherwise seems to work.

it does not seem to work, I build a second lab in the base and the same seems to happen.

I removed all files and reinstalled them completely. the same thing happens.

would altering the base stats of the soldiers do something like this?
