I just joined the forum today because I purchased TFTD via Steam a couple of days ago. I bought UFO: EU in some package deal many years ago and as you all know it was a revolution in game design
I tried TFTD back then too but I don't think I ever played through all of it. Now to the matter at hand.
Sometimes I've had crashes, and I've seen this mentioned in the News-thread (http://www.strategyc...?showtopic=6335
) but I think it might be better to keep TFTD-discussions in the TFTD-thread, so I start a new topic here.
First up I haven't gotten any music to play but I've seen solutions to that which I'm gonna try (changing the MIDI synth source, volume, etc...).
Secondly, my game crashes very often in the current mission. It's a shipping route terror mission and the game crashes sometimes when (it seems like at least) I move or turn an aquanaut around, sometimes during hidden movement. I've had a few crashes every now and then during other missions but this is extreme. It's so often that I started saving after every single aquanaut movement, but it became to tedious that I just gave up. I'm on the 2nd stage of the ship.
So, any of you XCOM-experts know of any oddities about the Steam-version and how they can be fixed? When it crashes it says "XCOM Terror from the deep gold edition has encountered an error and needs to close", or something, and as mentioned before there's some patch by "f0dder" included?
In the game folder there's a "runme.exe" "Terror from the Deep.exe" and "Terror from the Deep_patched.exe"
I am guessing the last one is the one with the f0dder-patch (whatever it does) and it's the one run by Steam.
