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
- Download and install OpenXcom Extended (OXCE) 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) Check the language setting under Options and set it to "en-US"
- (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 Options > Mods to change the look of your Space Marines to the Imperial Fists Chapter
Reduced Download Install (new with Version 018):
- If you already have the mod Version 017, want a smaller download, and are comfortable manually moving some files within the mod folder, pick the 40k_noANIMS_018.zip download.
- Follow the instructions for Updating below, but when you remove the previous version, keep the folders 40k/Resources/ANIMS, 40k/Resources/Sound, and 40k/SOUND, and the sub-mods Imperial Fists and 40k_Statstrings.
- After putting the updated 40k folder into user/mods, put the folders you kept from the previous version into the same places in the new version.
- If the game doesn't work correctly after this, try the full download/update.
- 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.
- Big props to Ryskeliini for the space marine stuff and Dixone for the help

Sprites, sounds, maps, ruleset code etc:
