As I found most other guides on this topic either poorly tested or just too damn long I decided to make my own. It find other guides are more experimental, they all just hope things work, and that's what bothers me. So I made this guide for own use, but I was thinking it could be useful for others as well, so I put it here. I know there's a lot of these guides out there already, but honestly I think mostly they're either not working or very poorly written and so here is a very detailed and cut to the chase guide that has been thoroughly tested. The release is bundled with all the necessary files.

It took me some hours to make so I hope it helps somebody. I'd like to hear what you think, either it's a story of success or not, please let me know. But you have to follow the instructions carefully, or else it makes no point you know ^_^

Regards,
battlesquid.

I for one had no trouble getting X-Com Apocalypse to run, but of course Im one of the lucky non-dosbox users ^_^!
Me: Magic Eight Ball, do alien beings inhabit the earth?

Eight Ball: For the love of God, would you stop jiggling me! How can I predict the future when I'm about to throw up?!

Thanks, BattleSquid! I followed steps 1 - 7 in your guide and then, instead of using DosBox, I ran XComApoc.exe from Windows Explorer by right-clicking on it and selecting "Run with VDMS". It worked like a charm. I am using WinXP Pro Home Edition.

The mouse is too slow, so I use mouse2kv.exe to speed it up. The need to launch mouse2kv.exe from DOS means I usually run the game from a Command Prompt.
