Even messed up my hard drive. They sent me a disclaimer stating software problems don t cause hardware problems. I can prove them wrong but instead i have decided to never buy one of there games ever. If you choose the hard copy disk version will work its just the digital version that crashes.
I d like to see someone complete this mission like this, also i can confirm this happens on the xbox version as well, i think the problem is k were busy fucking jacking eachother off or something and put this together too quickly, fucking the mission up entirely giving it multiple bugs that remained dormant until the patch was released. First time it was the zombie base defence officer bug that crashes the game, then i restarted my xbox and then this kept happening. I know the game is years old, but the least k could do is release another patch that fixes this damned mission.
They really should have fixed this issue. Seriously. When your game does this you fix it not make your players uninstall the game
I m downloading it by the ps store. If i reinstall it, do i need to uninstall the other version? Will i lose my save games?
It worked! Thanks heeps mate!
This bug just hit me in ironman mode. I couldn t believe my eyes after all the hell i ve been through. I guess i ll try reinstalling it
This is exactly what my system does.
Thank you so much! ! I deleted the game off my ps and when i re downloaded it i didn t agree to the update and its working again! ! ! ! Thank for all the great advise guys! ! !
If i delete it how do i get my save game data back? ?
How do i fix this i have the downloaded version from psn?
Fuck this shit.
I was just bit by this bug. I had been playing xcom via steam on my mac pro until the yosemite. . Update broke support for the logitech f game pad controller. So i bought xcom via psn for the refurbished ps i recently bought to play the last of us. I applied the. Update and had no problems until i reached the base defense mission and got the black screen of death described by. I deleted the game and downloaded it again. This time i did not apply the update and my saved state file was successfully loaded and i completed the base defense mission.
Okay, but what if i wanna do online multiplayer?
What happens if you install the patch only after completing the base defense mission? I ve been rejecting the update request every time i boot the game up, but now that i ve advanced past that mission i m wondering if i can just let it go. It would be nice to experience whatever benefits the patch actually offered! If the patched unpatched saves are incompatible or anything like that, i ll just live without it and continue playing this janky but very fun version of xcom.
So, i have to eat up my bandwidth to redownload this game because i made the mistake of installing the update. I might be playing this game again on pc, but firaxis k aren t stealing anymore money from me.
Just to wrap it in a neat little package, it sounds like if you have disc version, go to game data utility and delete xcom ew game data. Start game, don t reinstall. Update. If you have digital download, you re s. O. L. And have to re download and reinstall digital download game patches aren t in game data utility. Start game, don t reinstall update. Thanks, k. Re downloading gigs. It s nice that psn didn t bother with preinstalled patches on digital downloads, so we have control over updates. This wouldn t work if psn actually cared about consumer experience! Comedy of errors all around!
