X-COM: UFO Defense CONFIRMED WORKING on Vista 64-bit


It's hard to find the game itself these days, but playing the game through DOSBox can be a bit of a hassle.  I prefer to play with the Gold Edition release for Windows.

Thus, I tried for two hours to get the game working.  I tried both f0dder's patch and XCOMUTIL96 before I came across Mok's patch, which worked.  I can't find the link anymore, but I just wanted to spread the good news to Vista users; this board is the first one you find on Google.

Happy Hunting!

Now if only my new computer had a floppy drive I could be playing a classic.

Purchase it from Steam for $5. They have it working perfectly in a specially-tailored version of DOSBOX. Works on Vista and XP without a hitch.
We can all learn something from the Legend of Zelda and it's triforce, Power is nothing without the courage and wisdom to make use of it it...
