Never managed to get a working version of it on XP no matter how hard I tried. It always crashed the second it went to a mission map
I was in the process of making a re-make of the original game, trying to keep it as close to the original look and feel as possible, including some of the bugs... opps I mean "features" that were in the game. Unfortunatly I haven't had much time to work on it.
On another note, I remember a game of TFTD where one of my squad spotted a lobsterman facing away from my main squad. They had just exited the sub at the time and only one soldier (inside the sub) still had enough time units to fire and he had the TFTD equivilent of the blaster launcher. I decided, in my ultimate wisdom, to try and hit the lobsterman from the front and so I painstakingly set up the waypoints around the lobsterman and into his front.
I fired and watched in horror as the bomb flew around the deired path, missed the lobsterman completly and flew straight back at my sub with 7 of my men standing around it. Next turn I had 2 soldiers left and one very amused lobsterman.
After that incident I always aimed the blaster bombs either directly at walls or into the floor.
