I'm trying to get all the files I need to run the game, and I wanted to know if any of you party people still play it so I'm not going through all this for nothing.

No, it doesn't suck really. It's actually quite fun :)

try finding the member here known as Doug. I believe he acquired a few copies he found in one of his local gaming shops, and he'd be more than happy to pass them on (definitely - who needs 7 copies? :) ).

Hope that helps!

For mjore info and even some screenshots of the game, head on over to the E-Mail X-COM section o the site :blink:

Yeah! I play it now! Thankyou Bastiaan for finding a copy for me! It arrived this morning all the way from the Netherlands! :) That makes my copy of the game better travelled than I am... :blink:
So who's up for a fight then? :)

Roger  :blink: ,

but I can't play myself right now, because a friend fixed my computer and didn't have time to install EX-COM again, so I have to wait till he comes by to get it to work again, because I can't do it myself as some of you know. :)

What's this ab00t re-writing?  Is the entire game being re-written? Or is it like a mod?

I think some dude made a server-less patch or whatever.  It's in the Downloads section, if it what i think it is.

Deary me Vettie :blink: Keep up there! Read the E-Mail X-COM section and you'll find that Infogrames shut down the official server, so Tankman wrote a serverless patch to make it run :)

Asmodai: It's more like a mod than a rewrite, for legal reasons I presume. We'll keep hounding Sid Meier at Firaxis tho and see what he says about giving it away free, but don;t keep your hopes up :)

Vettie, Doug's links should help, or PM one of the other EX-COM players and get them to talk you through it :)

I suppose I really should finish the new tourney program with this renewed interest then... :) :blink:
