I have been a fan of TFTD for many years, since recently i've installed XcomUtil to try it out. However, when this happens, this enables Barracuda transport to carry soldiers. I tried it by sending a barracuda to a terror site with crew, and when it switches to Tactical.exe, it jams up and says "cannot find terrian/barracud.map" or barracud.pck or parracud.tab

i've tried to re-install XcomUtil and TFTD numberous times but no luck

i am using TFTD Dos Version 2.0

Does anyone have these files that i require??


Many thanks

Xcomutil copies the pck and tab files from the triton. the map file is included with xcomutil.
Have you checked the folder to see if the files are there?

Combat is very simple, there is a first place and second place, second place is laying face down in the mud, sometimes, so is first place.

Thanks for your reply, i have indeed checked for the files, and i do have those files, triton files in map, pck, and tab types as well. the xcomutil does incorporate new files which is also there in the folders. maybe it is not utilised properly? does triton files have an effect on using barracuda for use with missions?

However, i will redownload xcomutil and install it again and fully look into it properly and see what happens.

I've reinstalled the xcom, patched it up to V2, and installed xcomutil. Made no difference. However, i took on aboard your comments, and indeed i did have those files, and copied the .pck, .tab files from triton into /terrain folder and renamed it as barracud.pck and tab. the end result is that it finally works!!! :D :D :D

Maybe there is a flaw within XcomUtil not moving and copying files correctly for the version of game i have got?

That is possible under some version of setups the copy and xcopy dont work the same as on others.
