regarding the buffer error

Files/Buffers Error    Remember, Apoc was made for old DOS and it requires a few things that most DOS machines already had running, including the right numbers of buffers and files that a program could manipulate at once. From the start menu, run sysedit.exe A lot of little windows will appear in the sysedit window. Find the one called config.sys Go to the bottom of the file (or the top if it is empty) and enter these commands, on seperate lines:  buffers=20  files=20  Save the file, exit the program, and restart your machine. Theoretically, this should fix the problem.

Try again after doing that.

I'd recommend using files and buffers of 40 just to be on the safe side. New computers can handle it.

As for the cd-rom speed: New cd-roms and dvd-roms are so fast that the install software cannot accurately time the speed properly. I'd recommend ignoring this error and continue to install the game. It shouldn't stop you from doing this, except perhaps if you didn't set 'files' to something.

I think I had that too, just go to the directory you installed xcom3 to with windows explorer, and double-click XCOMAPOC.exe, or whatever it's called.

now you have it installed, follow the instructions in this topic : http://www.xcomufo.c...p?showtopic=841

Feel free to ask if you don't understand something.

Regarding the files/buffers error, Once xcom3 is installed I don't think you have to worry about it anymore.
But, if you are using winXP config.sys is apparently replaced by config.nt in your windows/system32 folder, if you have xp, try altering that one, it might work.
