    A little thing but when selecting equipment for a mission the “include stuff other people are holding” button is great but could equipment held by people who are currently selected to deploy get a different colour background or a border or something? I keep just passing the same thing around the squad!

    oh, awesome game by the way! I played the first xcom on the iPad and loved it. Played xcom2 on pc but it was never the same and I’ve bought WOTC on pc and switch but never actually bothered to play it, this time it’s amazing, can’t beat the touch controls.

    Anyone know how performance is on the iPad Air 3?

    Also, just curious... the Steam version mentions 5 DLC packs whereas iOS has 4. Does anyone know which one isn’t included?

    XCOM.jpg Hi all, just started playing and some how I’ve got stuck in this screen, I can scroll through all the units, press the various tabs (loadout, upgrades etc) but I can’t find anyway of going back! Feel like a fool as I must be doing something wrong!?!

    the back button (I assume the triangle under the character left / right buttons is always greyed out!

    **edit** Doh! A little unintuitive, but you have to seemingly edit a load out to be able to leave! If you go into the screen accidentally, you can’t just back out!

    If this is the tutorial, it’s not letting you leave because it’s wanting you to Equip a medkit to one soldier (I think it’s a medkit).

    Just beat an iron legend play through and probably had 15-20 crashes but all in all it was a flawless experience.

    Not having much luck, already reported an issue where video playback lags at like 1fps when I switch out of the app then back into it. Now half way through a mission the screen has gone completely white. I can cycle through units, shoot etc but can’t get rid of the white screen!

    Game is becoming frustrating, am I being a noob again? Cant get away from this screen, can click on objectives and schedule screen and that’s it, nothing I can do when in them, other options all greyed out, can’t click on any of the map icons or regions, nothing happens! Just stuck on the screen FDD2FB6A-2C03-4B70-ADB7-A26C180687E5.jpeg

    The Nintendo Switch version is on sale for $15 for Black Friday, same version. Wonder if this will go on sale as well.

    So, too, is the Steam version. For better or worse, however, Feral doesn’t run many iOS sales. I can assure you that, in this instance (and for virtually any of their titles on iOS), the title is worth the full asking price and that you can count on continued support over time. Think of it as a premium for having near-constant access to such an amazing experience on something as portable—relatively speaking in the case of Apple’s new iPhone 12 Pro Max—as a smartphone.

    That is the amount of power that the room will consume when it is built or upgraded to the next level. So if you don't have enough available power remaining, you will need to build a power station of find another way to increase your supply.

    I'm playing legendary ironman with grim horizon, and for me its a really fun level of challenge.

    The port is really good. Playing on ipad air 4.

    I played this after revisiting enemy within on ipad, and yes it takes a little bit of getting used to the elevation slider with grenades, grappling etc but after a few hours you don't notice it.

    For UI I recommend using the move button, and zip option.

    I already have this on pc, but love being able to play in bed etc after wife/kids are asleep.

    I played on an iPad Air 4, but also tested a little on my iPad Air 3 and thought it ran fine. Not perfect, but good enough to enjoy.

    Bought this at launch and burned many, many hours on several playthroughs on an OG iPhone X. Even with the regular crashes & freezes and interminable load times, I’ve had nothing but love. Recently traded that X for an iPhone 12 Pro Max. The upscale is remarkable and the load times, negligible. Just like that I’m in love again. Nothing new or important to add, really, just wanted to point out to anyone who is curious that what the devs assured us were the “correct” graphics settings appropriate to our individual devices and setups, that was most definitely NOT cover speak for “We already put enough person-hours into UI menus and we don’t want to do the extra work for graphics sliders you will use twice, maybe three times”. The difference in performance between the two devices truly is remarkable and even zoom-in noticeable.

    Well done, Feral!
