I have downloaded "X-COM: Terror from the Deep" which is in DOS. Your site with this download also shows a patch, and I have downloaded it as well. I am running it through Boxer on a Mac OS 10.6.8, but can not figure out how to use the patch. I can not even open the "read me" located in the patch file, as Mac says there is no app to do so. How would I use this patch?
I had some difficulty getting this to install correctly. If anyone else is having problems, this is what I did to get it to work:
imgmount x C:pathtoTERROR.ISO -t iso
Then just go though the install.
DON′T run the install command. It does not install it correctly.
Do you think you can distribute this game with the animated cinematics? Even though the HDD install replaces them with slides, they can still be re-enabled by doing the following: Copy the ANIMS folder from the CD-ROM into the game directory then create a file called cdspeed.dat and place it in the SOUND directory. To create the cdspeed.dat, the easiest method is use any plain text editor and save a blank file as CDSPEED.DAT.
Also, remember guys to patch it to v2.1, I had to do it because I could′t research magnetic navigation. Patch solves so many bugs.
@Emmanuel Goldstein: If you have problems with speed of the game, configure DoxBox to your liking. This worked for me:
Change number of cycles if needed.
