Hi, Its indeed a bit tricky to install. I′m using Linux, I used wine to run the XcomUtil 9.7.exe executable. The install directory was the mount point I used under Linux to mount my "C" drive in Dosbox (my case ~/dosgames). So the installation directory that I used during the Xcom Util wizard was: /home//dosgames/UFO. After the install, I just copied all files from ′UFO′ directory into my ~/dosgames/UFO directory manually. Now I switch to Dosbox. And execute the just installed XcuSetup.bat script in my UFO folder. This will do the actual setup with some advanced improvement patches if you want. Now its working!

I don′t think the UFOCRACK.COM is really necessary. If you want to play the game without mounting the CD just input the follow in the command line:
XCOPY D:*.* C:XCOM /S
INSTALL C:XCOM
CDSETUP C:
where D: is your CD and C: is the drive on which you wish to install XCOM.
Also the latest update (1.4) disables the copy protection codes.

X-com 1 2 e 3 funcionam em dosbox. PONTO.

1 cria uma pasta e descompacta o game nela (recomendo c:games)
2 monta a pasta do game em dosbox. (recomendo c:games)
mount c c:games
3 digite c: e navegue para a pasta do game
4 tecle TAB e os executáveis aparecerão
5 digite UFO

simples
Obs: setup configura o som. É só teclar enter até sair.

I′m wondering if this will work on computers, My only real problems when playing it on the site is that it seems a little laggy which ruins the music which makes the game hard to play. I′m not too old being only 15 but I remember back in the day when i was little playing games like this one and I feel nostalgic.

  1. Download
  2. Unzip files
  3. Setup and Install
  4. Launch the game.
  5. Play!
Enjoy..!

    enemy can shoot you when you cant even see them sounds like realistic combat to me.

  3. JuriXp says:

    I downloaded and played this but after 1 hour i delete it, why? well because the game have some many bad points like the enemy can shoot you when you cant even see them T_T

  4. Burgers says:

    Fantastic! Thank you very much hosting this. I′ve XCOM 2 but still wanted to play UFO. Thanks!

  5. verashnash says:

    You have to run via GO.com to avoid a crash.

    Maybe running UFOCRACK.com prior to this is neccessary as well as relocating some files into the main file e.g. UFO.exe from UFOEXE into UFO.

    Game works great untill the ground missions begin, than it crashes. I use DOSBox 0.74 to run it.

    Tips are welcome!

    Just cant seem to get this game x-com anywhere. My friend that died of cancer used to play this with me before he passed, and would love to finish the game out. I lost the damn disc, and old tower we played on. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Byron Mcclellan. Mcclellanbyron@yahoo.com

  11. NoiNha says:

    don′t run the xcomutil. Norton thinks it is a virus. It might not be, but it isn′t necessary to play the game. Just use doxbox (the latest), and ignore the request for a game code and press enter

  12. vean says:

    I′m trying to install on dosbox on my galaxy s 3. I am at the install screen and it tells me to insert disc 1, and won′t let me continue with the install. How do i get past this?

  13. buffy says:

    cant get this to work on dosbox, wont even open the game folder,
    having same issue with x-com-terror-from-the-deep, however i made sure only one was present but still neither work.
    any help plz?

  14. Phil says:

    If you′re trying to play this through DOSBox and you′re getting a blank screen when running it, try opening the UFO.BAT file with a text editor and add "rem" followed by a in front of the command "%1intro".

    Is it the newer X-Com on Steam?

    Try to level up a variety of soldiers, since many of them will inevitably be found to be psychically/mentally weak…

  16. Matt Sherman says:

    is this really abondanware?it is on steam.not really saying it shoudn′t be here,just curious

  17. mankok says:

    I really would not call this an rpg. It does have rpg elements to it but yeah, more of a strategy game really.

  18. splitChip says:

    I can′t figure out how to run in my dosbox. I beat it on ps1, still have it and can′t get my emulator to play it… Someone please explain how to make it happen! Tytytyty

  19. mushandin says:

    Wow I can′t stop playing this game, the best game on this site hands down thank you my abandonware it′s so addictive.

  20. AnnOniMiss says:

    Adding my voice to the chorus, one of the best games ever made (even though we all know the real aliens are just the US Air Force in disguise :0 ). Along with Jagged Alliance 2, one of the best and most addictive turn-based tactical game ever made. The current incarnation by Firaxis have brilliant Unreal Engine graphics, but could not match the depth and game play of this game. Having played this, the Firaxis game is very limited and frustrating. For the real afficionados you can try OpenXCom in sourceforge.

  21. Potato says:

    I loaded this up when it came out, tried it, didn′t really "get" it, closed it. Never looked back. 🙂

  22. mervish says:

    This may sound stupid but which file should I open in DOSbox to start the game? I′ve tried a few but they don′t initiate the game

  23. BTOWN says:

    Ok it seems dosbox 0.74 work much better with the cd version of this game (v1.4). Saddly the link here only provide the floppy v1.2 version.

  24. fab says:

    hi,

    I have download this game and D-Fend Reloaded.
    The game works fine, i have played like 5 hours, and now, every new same game i try to make is corrupt (when i try to load it, the game freeze and nothing happend).
    Hopefully, i had different save file, so i didnt lost much, but now i can′t progress in the game (or to be more precise i cannot save anymore ^^).
    Any idea on how to fix this issue ?

  25. Kiki says:

    The world was not the same after this game 😉

  26. yeh says:

    Absolutely hands down the best game ever! The new one is ok but nothing will ever be better than this… and star wars galaxies… that is all.

    I forgot to mention that you have to capture a leader, so research on him; then do research on mars solution or something like that. THEN capture/do research on a commander. The game says that commanders reside only in alien bases, but that isn′t entirely true. I have captured a commander on a battleship. I wouldn′t have known what it was beforehand except that I was using the mind tool to discover what each alien was before attacking it. When I saw it, I was surprised. The game tries to fool you by having the commander standing outside where it will be one of the first aliens contacted. without the mind tool, you won′t know what it is, and will end up killing it and missing the opportunity to capture him. Don′t worry about losing a couple of soldiers in the process, because it makes the game shorter. Try and isolate the commander, then gang up on him with at least 3 or 4 soldiers with stun rods at the same time.

  28. Arif says:

    as far as i remember, I don′t think you have to follow a specific order, but it′s a lot of time I last played….

    I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!

  29. dianaaa says:

    In order to finish the game, you have to capture a commander from a battleship and do research on him, but you have to be sure to do research on all of the other aliens first, not all of the races, just several of the officers, starting with a soldie
