From those who complain about his playstyle... Are there videos of those, who can show "how to play" this game?
i have also been waiting for some how to play videos, but it seems i have just became a considerably more patient person in the process.

first time playing is what let's play means, so i am not complaining about the players being newbies.

but i would rather watch someone who knows what he is doing.

I hope to make a few videos for the release of 2.5, with some tips for old players regarding the vast changes and a nod to some basic gameplay strategies. But given all the other tasks hanging around, I won't be surprised if this doesn't happen. If it does, we'll make a ufoai-team YouTube account and post them from there.

for more than five years i have been waiting for a reasonable ufo:ai gameplay video on youtube, killing time with other things to keep myself sane, and even if i wait more it probably will not happen ;)

*Necroposting*
I've found a 18 part long Lets Play of 2.4 on youtube, found it worth to be mentioned here in the forums:

Interesting, but it makes obvious that UI is sometimes non-understandable. For example, he does not know that he can cycle through visible aliens. Or using right-click when equipping soldiers.

There's a good text-based LP going on here, for those that enjoy this sort of thing.

Thanks for the recognition - there is a long tradition of X-Com worship amongst the Dwarf Fortress community, with there seemingly always at least one lets play of one version or another of it going on. There are 3 at the moment (one of TFTD, one of the new one, and one of Xenonauts), and I thought that I would expose the rest of Bay12 to your work. People are responding very positivley so far, so expect a few more players coming your way.

Thats great to hear. :) But i've been wondering why the resolution of the geosphere is so low in your screenshots while other textures are in a better quality?

Ahh, I did not immediately connect the forums to Dwarf Fortress. I was thinking, "this guy is finding clever solutions to tactical problems". Makes sense now. :)

No idea, sorry! I have set the format to .png for all screenshots and am playing on a 1400*900 display with imgur for image hosting. Thing look a lot better ingame than in the geoscape screenshots. TBH its not that much a of a problem, the combat is where most of the fun comes from, and those images look fine. Also, the updates on the bay12 forums are getting kinda big now and lower quality images are helping keeping the thread load in a sensible time for most people.

Heh, thanks for the flattery! Whilst I am failry new to UFO:AI I have been playing x-com and its variants for years and like to think I have learnt a thing or two. It doenst help that as (you correctly assume) most Bay12/DF players are game sadists, and they seem to offer me challenging characters to use.

Regarding the quality of screenshots. Perhaps the jpeg quality is set very low. IN your options, you should see an option for screenshot type. If you switch that to PNG you should get some better quality shots. You may need to convert to jpeg before posting to the forums, though.

I didnt meant the quality of the screenshots, i meant the quality of the actual earth texture. Its really low res while other textures in the battlescape are in a higher quality.

I have no idea why that might be. I do have the screen stretched 4:3 to avoid lots of black sidebars. I have the texture resolution set to "normal" as my not-so-great laptop copes well with all other graphical features on at that texture but struggles with the weather if set higher. I shall try setting the texture resolution to high and turning weather effects off.
