Hello all and welcome to the Xcom 1: Saved Games and Missions Forum. We have a few guidelines for people trying to post things in this forum...

In an attempt to make the saved games as globally accessible as possible, we request that you post your files in a compressed, self-extracting format. Winzip has a feature that allows you to do this, as do many other similar programs. Please avoid the use of any other formats.

It has also been brought to our attention that such self extracting files (of extension 'exe') can be restricted on various connections. In order to avoid this problem we ask that you rename the file extension to 'ex_' so that such filters will be ineffective.

We appreciate your continued co-operation on this matter, and look forward to a great collection of saved games!

when posting image mission threads, use .png or .jpg images (xnview is able to make good conversions between file formats such as .png). Try to keep them under 20-30k if possible and in their original resolution (320x200, no need to resize them)

Taking screenshots :
xcom1&2 CE : simply press F12 and the game will save the image as a .tga file in the xcom folder.
xcom3 : press ALT+P and the game will save the image as a .pcx file in the xcom folder.
