    Xcom is in no doubt in my top 10 games of all time, cant go wrong by enhancing it . Wish we could have the graphics of the new one with the depth of the first xcom.

    Once I finish Xenonauts I will gladly get to playing this. The potential is tremendous, pity their engine is badly-suited to a graphics enhancement mod, because I would love to see the graphics of UFO2000 ported to this.

    honest question: why are you all so excited for a game you already played to death?

    *I* didn't play it to death.

    Is anyone able to play on the Battlescape with a high resolution scale without terrible performance?

    Because it shows that the forces of decline haven't completely prevailed yet and it provides us a with modicum of hope for the future?

    No slowdowns at all here, 1/2 res scale (1920x1080). IIRC some of the scalars could cause bad slowdowns in earlier versions, haven't tried them now.

    It's probably the most replayable game ever. Top 5 at least.

    2020. Civilization has progressed little.
    Will there ever be a graphics replacement pack?

    I like Xcom graphics, but I would like to be able to play OpenXcom without any dependencies on external data.

    The OpenTTD project made it a strict goal for their 1.0 release, which I think was a great decision.

    Because the weak interface was getting in the way for each replay of the game. With this gone, we can play it to more than death.
