I put a copy of the fileplanet archive, the patch files, the pdf manual and some directions here. Enjoy x-com gold edition if you've got the turn-based alien squishing need.

I <3 Heavy Plasma. Boo yeah. HE rounds in the Auto Cannon are pretty mean too. Who uses doors, anyway?

I tend to lean more heavily toward the heavy weapons in the beginning. the auto cannon loads 3 types ammo, so it's pretty versatile. How often do you need the long range of the rifles when you're skulking buildings and ships? I tend to go auto-cannon -> laser rifle -> heavy plasma -> blaster bombs with a HWP. the fusion ball HWP is so sick, too.

I tend toward the more accurate weapons... autocannons you need to shoot a lot and/or be standing right next to your target.

Well, kneeling improves accuracy by 10%, and I tend to auto-shoot 3 shots a lot. Course, with HE rounds, you just need to aim at the floor under the alien, and then scrape his corpse off the ceiling for autopsy later.

I always wanted to try to psi-control the cyberdiscs, jump a guy on top and then fly it around like a hoverboard. That would be so sweet.

The creepy music is by far the best part of the game.

I am trying to play Darklands but when I double-click the exe, it flashes the black dos box and then goes away. It's too fast for me to read if it says anything. What's the deal?!
