Newbie Coding / Re: Prevent battlescape UI element upscaling?
« on: September 30, 2013, 05:44:24 pm »
It's been a very long time since I worked with this, but I believe the game upscales from 1024x768 because that is the size set in the UI scripts. I believe the battlescape window size is set in base/ufos/ui/hud_default.ufo:

Code: [Select]
battlescape battlescape
pos "0 0"
size "1024 768"

Try playing around with the size parameter to see if you get any different results.

I can't remember how 2.4 ends, but it's just a matter of time before you see new things appear.

Is it possible that the Aliens need some room on earth? That I need to let them gain some progress?

2.4 has a big lull in the campaign where there is not much  new stuff for a long while. 2.5-dev has fixed that.

Announcements / 2.5 branch created - nightly and source-code builds effected
« on: September 26, 2013, 12:54:51 pm »
We have now created a branch for 2.5, which means our repository is now effectively on 2.6-dev. If you download regular nightly builds, you will notice in the next nightly that the save game location has moved to a new 2.6 directory, so you will need to transfer your save game files. If you compile from source, this will occur the next time you update your source.

We have also begun merging some aspects of UI2 into 2.6-dev. If you want to continue stable play, we encourage you to use the 2.5 branch for the time being. We will hopefully provide some release candidates in the near future for you to play with the latest fixes. But remember "near future" is relative to our generally slow pace, so they may not be available terribly soon.

Your other soldiers must be wounded. There's no soldier stat that effects cost. I don't think there is a grenade that costs more, but I can't be certain unless I look at the definitions.

I can only answer the last one. Soldiers gain xp at the end of a mission. You can see any rank gains in the geoscape log. Therefore, multiple missions in a ssingle trip will all count.

A major battlescape bug has been fixed recently. Try a new nightly.

Did you make the model in the attached image?

I don't know what the thresholds are for 2.4, but civilian deaths can stop rank advancement. Each rank has a limit, but looking at 2.5-dev's values, a soldier won't be given Senior Warrant Officer or any higher rank if they have any civilian deaths. So if your civ death came after that, he's probably frozen.

Just today there were some bug fixes for battlescape crashing. Try downloading the nightly build tomorrow and hopefully you won't encounter this.

on every other try i never crossed 10 kills without own losses.

That's impressive. I can rarely get through the first few alien base turns without a loss or two. The entrance is a real killer.

In 2.5-dev, you should expect soldier losses. Everything -- weapon balance, armour levels, wounds, medikits, soldier stats, employee numbers, UFO frequency, alien squad size -- have been designed with the expectation that you will suffer losses in combat. Battlefield success requires minimizing losses, not eliminating them.

Maybe this is the problem? I wasn't able to reproduce this myself.

Code: [Select]

I would suggest trying to compile your updated source or trying a full nightly build to see if that fixes it. The nightly build could be slightly out of sync in some important way with the files.

UFO disassembly is what engineers should be doing when not producing something you need. They can net a very small profit from selling the scraps, and you can start stockpiling alien materials and antimatter you'll need later in the game.
