This is a Warhammer 40k total conversion for OpenXcom, based on an earlier space marine mod by Ryskeliini. As Force Commander for the Imperium of Man on a planet beseiged by Chaos, you must find a way to end the Warp Storm and purge your world!

By Ryskeliini, bulletdesigner, ohartenstein23, and many contributors from the OXC forums


Installation and Update Instructions Video: Youtu.be


Installation:

  • Download and install OpenXcom Extended (OXCE), version 7.5.3, by Meridian and Yankes
  • Run OXCE after copying the UFO files to generate the user/mods folder
  • Download the 40k files, and unzip into the mods folder
  • Run OXCE, go to Options > Mods and select "40k" from the drop-down menu at the top
  • (Optional) If the Music is playing the UFO soundtrack, check Options > Audio > Music Format, and set it to "Auto" or "OGG" if it isn't one of those.
  • (Optional) Turn on the Stat Strings mod under Options > Mods
  • (Optional) Turn on the Chapter Change mod under Mods to change the look of your Space Marines to the Imperial Fists or the Blood Angels Chapters
  • (Optional) Turn on the Cutscenes mod under Mods to get short briefing videos before most missions


As of Version 024, we now have an auxiliary mod with short briefing cutscenes before most missions. To install it:

  • Download the latest 40k_Cutscenes (40k_cutscenes_031) file from below
  • Place either the .zip file or unzip it into your user/mods folder (but don't do both!)
  • Turn it on in you mods menu


Updating:

  • Save any current campaign in the Geoscape. Loading a Battlescape save from a previous version is more likely to cause bugs and crashes, and is not recommended.
  • Remove the previous version's 40k folders from your OXCE mods folder.
  • Download the new version's files and unzip into the mods folder. Your previous saves should be compatible if made during the Geoscape.


Credits:

  • Big props to Ryskeliini for the space marine stuff and Dioxine for the help
  • Used a lot of maps from Terrainpack prior to version 024, so special thanks to Hobbes also so help on side

Tools:

Sprites, sounds, maps, ruleset code etc:

  • All around thanks to everyone, I used lot of stuff from other mods for reference and change it to 40k universe
  • Background images from various internet sources

i cant select deathwatch even though the codex says its an option

It's probably not enabled yet. I assume eventually it'll be a research option for a strategy

How can I tell what the custom statstrings are? Some of them are obvious, but the others confuse me.

Hello I would like to know where you got the music from.
I would like to know either the name of the music, name of musician or where you find the music if you can't answer one of first two.
I’m especially interested of the origins of “gmmars.ogg” and “gmstory.ogg”
I created this account solely for the reason to find the music.
Thank you in advance.

gmstory and gmmars are from the old chaos gate game

I decided to put a crafting modification made for openXcom. But if I go to the "Base" menu, the game crashes. (Modification works for openXcom). What should be corrected?

I keep getting random crashes on my playthroughs. The error message says i can submit my save to hopefully fix the problem. Anyone know where exactly i do this or who i contact.

OH
ohartenstein23 @ohartenstein23

You can report it on our subforum on the OpenXcom forums, though I recommend checking the bugreports thread first to see if there is already a fix for the crashes you're having: Openxcom.org

We also have a discord server: Discord.gg
