Unpack. Start extractor.bat and point it to where you've got the original game unpacked on your hard drive (it needs that for sounds and graphics). Press exit when it finishes. Run UFO.EXE to start the game.

You have to react and improvise, marine. I think it makes sense from a story-telling point of view. What you say is like saying that Mutons are hax because they're far tougher than Sectoids and they aren't harmed by normal firearms, but they're revealed later well into the game.

My strategy implied three complete squads in three different bases. By the time I learnt the psi strength of my men, I just re-distributed them so that the psi-strongest are in one of the bases, from which I always launch missions against psi-enabled aliens (Ethereals or Sectoids).

You can learn which soldiers are psi-weakest even before you research psi. Any of your soldiers that is psi-attacked and fails to resist, mark him and transfer him to another base if necessary.

Among my soldiers I select one third of them with the greatest psionic strength, and put them in Europe, which is closest to the other two. When the mission is against Sectoids or Ethereals, I launch from Europe and my squad is then impervious to psionic attacks.

The rest of the world is covered by cheap radar-only bases in Africa, South America, Australia and the North Pole, which can include stores so that I can free some slots occupied by storage facilities in the operational bases.

Thank you very much, the Fifth. This is good advice. Now I'm going to do (We have morning, the day has just begun).

Game should run without the extractor too. If you can't run it, im afraid your pc is not enought (not having pixel shaders 2.0 or such)

Thanks, I've been around on those forums for a year now, contributing mainly in discussions about balancing, improvement and game music

Done/I click, but the game freezes.
Started. It has long appeared to be running, but still started.
