    I actually feel bad for all the comments I did not answer in the last year or so... I have played lots of games, but most of which did not have mods support so I very rarely came to the nexus...

    Sadly, there does not seem to be a way to get email notifications of new posts here... ALL of my email notifications are active in the settings yet i dont get emails from posts here...

    Anyway, If anyone wants to reach me personally, send me a PM directly on the nexus forums and i'll answer 100% of the time

    For anyone wanting to do small tweaks, you are more than welcome to try your luck! Be aware however that MOST settings are hard-coded in the save themselves and will only reset and work with a brand NEW GAME... As for how to edit the ini... get notepad++ or any other text editor, open the ini file from the download before installing the mod, start reading, trying to understand and changing values here and there... then install the mod and try them out! Thats how I did at first

    Good luck to all and have a nice day!

    For all of you that asked for a Long War edition of my mod... well there is one now! and its 100% times easier to install since you just have to copy 1 single file!

    availlable now here on the Nexus : http://www.nexusmods.com/xcom/mods/669/?

    Today (January 15th 2016), I decided to replay the game using my own mod... since i had not played for a while, i started by doing a verify integrity with steam to make sure i had "stock" version...

    then I ran install-4-Xcom-EnemyWithin.bat (but like others said, it closed too quickly), i did "shift+right click in the folder, selecting "open command windows here" (you can also open CMD directly from the run menu)... then i ran it again and it said it was installed fine...

    then, i copied the 2 files from folder #5 (5-ULTIMATE_UBER_Version) from enemy within to the "\SteamApps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XEW\XComGame\Config"

    finally, i opened DefaultGameCore.ini, searched for PSI_GIFT_CHANCE and changed it to PSI_GIFT_CHANCE=0.01 to fix a small error i had in my mod...

    then launched the game... and the mod STILL WORKS!!

    How to know? EASY!

    Start a new game, skip tutorial, as soon as you have control of your first character, throw a grenade!! if it does 5 damage instead of the usual 3, then the files are installed and working!!

      I have tried to run the batch file for enemy unknown but it keeps posting this error:

      the reason why you both have this issue is because the installer cannot find your xcom install directory... either because you are not using a steam version of the game... or the registry are not found (perhaps another language of windows i dont know)...

      HOWEVER, you can manually tell the installer where your xcom directory is located.. as long as you know how to type in dos window
      1) open cmd in the folder where you have the xcom mod helper (shift + right click in the folder, select open command window here)
      2) type in :xcommodhelper.exe -x X:\games\XCom-Enemy-Unknown -c EWconfig.xml
      I just tried it on mine and it worked! you have to point to the root folder of the game (regardless of which EW or EC you have)
      of course X:\games\ is an example... put in the correct drive letter and folder path for where your Xcom-Enemy-Unknown folder is!

      hopefully it will work for others who have similar issues

      I have my steam library in another HD. Steam created the following folder: E:\Program Files (x86)\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common to drop the game folders.
      When I try to tell the mod the location of the folder, It says: "[ERROR]> The Specified XCOM Root Directory [ E:\Program ] is not valid".

      If I put a space between E:/ and Program, it tries to set the directory in the root E:/, but obviously can't find the game:

      "E:\Program Files (x86)\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown\XCOMModH

      Tried to remove the spaces between Program and Files, and pretty much any other combination of the directory name to make it work. To avoid typos, I've dragged the directory from the explorer to the CMD screen, but it still doesn't recognize it.
      Anything I've done wrong?

      and THAT is why i never use spaces in my directory names! lol... i'm old school... i started on DOS 5.0...

      basically what you should type would probably be exactly like this :

      xcommodhelper.exe -x "E:\Program Files (x86)\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\XCom-Enemy-Unknown" -c EWconfig.xml

      Hi, I'm new to XCOM and currently playing Enemy Within, vanilla, no mods with 2 DLC's. In reading your post above I have several questions. First, I cannot get you Mod to install. I have the same issue that when trying to run the install-4-Xcom-EnemyWithin.bat as you describe in your post. The CMD window blinks on ever so briefly to quick;y disappear to fast to read. Have no ideal if the .bat install. I then open the CMD window as you suggested in the folder...same results. CMD blinks then gone. No difference. Any thoughts? Also, I do not have "The Long War" installed. Is that required to install your Mod? Also in your XCOMModhelper folder I see a XCommodhelper App. When I attempt to run this App as Administrator again as with the .bat files, the CMD window briefly blinks on then disappears. The App does not run...is this necessary? I really like the sound of your Mod and I believe I would enjoy using it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated....Thanks

      I am thinking you did something wrong... CMD means opening a "os window command prompt"... which is a black window that you can type in... it will never "blink and dissapear" as it is permanant until you close it... that way you can type in the commands i have written above for the "manual install" there is no reason it would not work if done properly... its just not THAT user friendly

      as for longwar, NO it is not required at all to play with this... in fact... this mod does NOT work with long war!! I had to make a separate version of the uber mod (linked at the top) to work with longwar

      Hello, I have the same issues as the other people, and I have tried everything. I believe it works for you because you have Enemy Within. For us ppl without it, it doesn't work.

      is what I get. No matter where I use the command prompt, no matter where I have the files, this is what happens. It is looking for a EW thing, but we only have EU. I am 100% positive that is the problem. You cannot verify this because you have EW. How can you test for EU only ?

      The batch file clearly says it is looking for a EW file somewhere. My game does not have EW, so it is impossible for the file to work.

      And before you ask, yes I am 200% positive I am using the EnemyUnknown batch file, not EnemyWithin.

      there seems to be something wrong with your command... you should try the manual install I posted here in the comments...

      you are using the EW config file and not the EU config... "perhaps" the bat file is wrong for people who dont have the expantion... i do not have time to test/check it and since i have the expantion i cannot use the regular one anymore either...

      best suggestion is really to try the manual installation instructions in DOS command prompt (CMD)
      and install the one for enemy unknown manually

      good luck

      Hello again

      Yeah I was using your example command and it used the EW config file. So I typed EU instead and that worked but still, the mod didn't work in-game.

      As a last attempt, I did the "stop Steam from calling home" thing with the hosts file and that worked ! So it works now

      very glad you finally worked it out!!

      from what i had read, the phone home thing can be an issue if you ever tried the online mode which i never did...

      not sure why the batch file wasnt working... but for ANYONE else having similar issue, search this thread and find the manual install steps and you will most likely succeed if you have basic computer knowledge!

      good luck to all.. i'm going back to modding my witcher3 now!

      It's not working for me. It says that xcommodhelper.exe is not a recognized command. It could be because I'm using powershell.

      nope... it was made 100% standalone... then again, im not 100% sure if the game hasnt changed since my last update...

      i might suggest using the longwar version... since they created a fully working installer, its much easier to get the uber mod working using their framework as you only have 1 file to copy to the right folder...

    Hey Forgive me if this sounds like a stupid question but one of the things the mod includes is "Panic Adjustments" What does that technically do (does it remove the panic thing or does it make the panic system slower) Again I'm sorry if this sounds like a stupid question
