Do I need the latest patch for Freedom Force to run this mod?
YES, please use FF patch 1.3 to run this mode properly. The saved games
won't work without it. Get the patch at
Where did you get the idea for this?
Consider this game our living X-Com fan fiction. The story takes place
shortly after the invasion. X-Com already has learned some new tech, but has yet
to meet all of the enemies that intend on the Earth's destruction.
How do I run the mod?
-Double click the ICON CREATED on your desktop
How did you handle turns (since the original X-Com game was turn-based)?
Unfortunately, the Freedom Force engine doesn't allow for turn-based combat.
The closest you can get to turn-based combat is to make use of the Pause feature
via the Spacebar.
How did you handle ammunition, or the lack thereof?
Instead of thinking about it like that, think about the original game where
each member had a set amount of time to do certain things. Equate amount of
energy to time units, and it should become at least mildly clear to you.
I seem to remember getting killed almost instantly if I took a blast in the
original, but now each squad member is pretty tough, didn't you work on game
Due to restrictions of the AI, the aliens are very aggressive. There's no
way you'd survive any of the missions if you could get killed with one hit. Look
at it this way, based on the endurance of the aliens, you better pray you can
survive with what you have, endless ammo and all.
[Any questions] about why some alien doesn't act like it did in the original
AI restriction, that's the easiest and I guarantee, the most honest answer
we can give for any questions of this type.
We made this mod out as a labor of love for the original, and
are not profiting in any way by its release to the general public.
