I have Xcom 1 Enemy Unknown, DOS version which runs under Dosbox. However, I find it frustrating that i cannot open the door when the soldier faces the door without going in directly and getting reaction attack from aliens. Then i lose soldiers... :(

Is there a button which allows u to open doors to have a look without walking in directly? I tried clicking the right mouse button which works for TFTD but for this game, it doesnt!

Can anyone help please?

Opening doors was one of the only new breakthrough features in TFTD that was never in the PC versions of UFO. The Playstation version of UFO however does have this feature.

It's a very good feature too, and was thoroughly disappointed when I played UFO for the first time. I found that after you've played for a while you'll develop strategies to cope with it. It's a real treat for UFO players who plan to move on to TFTD.
