Awesome and such a mostly polished interface, but I seriously suck at Veteran difficulty. My initial rookie squad is getting slaughtered late in the first mission. I need to re-think what the heck I'm doing cause it ain't working.  icon_redface

Concealed ambushes are cool but I'm just setting them up right. The Aliens walk a different way and so either they discover us or only one or two of my folks get to trigger an overwatch ambush.

I'm not so far seeing any major performance/loading issues but I did invest in that OK gaming PC in April and it's tackling it well early on at least.

*Yes totally agree on needing a text prompt for quick save and at least an optional "confirmation" prompt for quick loads.

Took forty minutes for that last final unlock before I could run the game icon_eek. I started the game on "Veteran" difficulty, got through the cutscenes, the tutorial mission, the next set of cutscenes, and did my first mission. I got murdered. I'm going to try it again with the setting of "Rookie"  Roll Eyes. Damn it's hard.

I'm running at High (not Maximum) graphics, my rig is Intel i7 4770K 3.5GHz, 16GB RAM, GTX 780 3GB, Win7 64bit Home Premium, 480GB SSD main drive. No problems running the game at a solid 30fps. My graphics card got to 80 degC, but it does that normally, it's the way the Nvidia controller works. My CPU stayed at a comfortable 62 degC, but it has liquid cooling. Game looks sweet, no glitches or slowdowns seen.

Potential issue... Quick save is F5, all well and good, but Quick Load is F9 and it does NOT ask if you are sure. You can really screw yourself that way if you bump the button. Also there is no text on the screen when you quick save, there should be.

I'm now at the "waiting for the updating timer" phase   Roll Eyes

Meantime, a new article from PC Gamer, How to tweak XCOM 2 .ini files for fun and danger

XCOM 2 is a lot more mod-friendly than its predecessor, which is great news for people with the time and knowledge required to create their own modifications and content. Itís also highly tweakable, with a huge amount of the gameís values and mechanics open to alteration through its exposed config files. All you need is a simple text editor like Notepad (or preferably, Notepad++), some basic familiarity with the game, and the time and patience to find what youíre looking for. In this article Iíll show you how to implement some basic tweaks to get you startedóthen, once youíre familiar with how it works, youíll be able to find and alter the game to your heartís content...

my willpower is fading and it shouldn't be. so many other games to play, but I guess most of them are multiplayer and nobody ever sticks with a game long enough to keep playing with me.  ninja

so many games to play already and nobody ever played the multiplayer in the first one so I'm waiting on cheap
We never agreed on anything, but I agree the MP in XCOM was a complete waste of time, if that's what he's saying.  icon_biggrin

And I do have a Harkonis character in mind for my XCOM2 character pool.  icon_cool C'mon midnight, get here already!

Ultimate Parkour Fails Compilation Part 2 by FailArmy |
I don't think any of the injuries are life threatening but still some people might not like to see it.

What I can't grasp is why someone would even try these things without helmets, pads etc. 

Yeah, some of those are just brutal.  Everytime somebody goes head first into some concrete I just cringe.    icon_eek

I've been using the steam link and steam controller a lot lately, hopefully the community or devs will put out a nice configuration for the controller soon. Would love to play this on my big screen setup while sitting on my lazy boy

First community guide posted, this one actually affects me... Want higher than 1080p?

Go to C:\Users\X\Documents\My Games\XCOM2\XComGame\Config (Where X is normally your name/computer name whatever)

Open XComEngine

Search for ResX

Change ResX and ResY to desired resolution

Exit Save

If you go to the settings menu you'll notice it will say 1080p, ignore this and don't change it unless you want it to revert back. =D

Blackjack you're the BEST!!   Now I have to pay it forward!!!  
Just try it, and have some patience learning the kb/mouse controls is all I ask.  icon_smile

It's on sale so I've been gifting it selectively - basically it's folks I think might actually play it with me at some point, which is definitely just an educated guess on my part  icon_smile - to a few friends list folks who'd had it on wish lists. In one case the guy doesn't even have a PC right now (!), but thanked me and said it's the first thing he'll boot up when he has a PC again. I'm not sure if his broke down or what.

I mean cripes, I could get about 10 copies of Helldivers for what I've thrown at The Division and XCOM 2 (deluxe). So doling out a couple more reasonable base-version Helldivers to friends seems like the right thing to do.  icon_smile I'm not nuts though and am only doling out the currently $13.99 version that I think only has the initial DLC pack included in it - Ranger? Actually maybe now it doesn't include that. If you don't see the "Camper" sniper rifle available at the weapons vendor on your ship, then I guess now the base game doesn't include it -- perhaps that was only during pre-orders late last year.
