I'm on the final mission and i seem to have a glitch

Using guns and explosives i blasted a short cut to the brain room

i slaughtered the few guards and then unleashed a hellstorm upon the monster brain eye

Until at last, I threw down my enemy and smote his ruin upon the mountainside.

end turn, game finished  beers all around clapping and cheering.........or not

next turn ok maybe i have to destroy the brain eye  thing AND all the surrounding equipment and fleshy parts

Earth shattering Kamboom !

ok now everything in this room has been vanquished .....end turn... OHH  COME ON THIS IS CRAP

so i've blown up everything in the brain room and the mission still does not end.

There is still a lot of enemies alive since i took a explosive short cut but most players would expect the mission to end once the brain has  been destroyed .

is  this a glitch or do you have to kill the brain and the aliens

It was not even very clear what you were meant to kill in the brain room, it should have been flagged as an  'enemy spotted' type thing  


I watched the end movie in the game folder,

Spoiler


wait did my guys all get killed like in Xcom terror from the deep end movie.
Xcom enemy unknown had better intro and end movies

Sounds like a bug, wait for BombBloke or NKF for some help :laugh:

And no your guys are fine, it's a glorious victory and humans colonise Mars in the following years. Good job commander :oh:

yeah i wont bother trying to fix it , i killed the brain ,  watched the ending movie, I'm good

is that actually an official ending about mars
thats good, did seem a bit weird , just BOOM my guys are all dead

would have been nice  to show my guys escaping like in the end of Return of the jedi with the Milenium Falcon escaping the exploding death star , they need to work on their intro (they got jane! lol) and conclusion movies

The ending is actually pretty good, all things considered.

You're to the brain. Gun pointed right at it.

It pleads for its life.

X-Com has had enough of its disingenuous assertions!

Blam.

Humanity wins! And, in the future, it'll use Cydonia as a stepping stone to the stars!

While it may not show your troops escaping, there's never a big boom so in actual fact there is no need for your troops to 'escape' at all. After they shoot the brain they would simply make their way calmly back to the Avenger, killing any other aliens they see along the way who are all panicking by now...
