    pRNG works like that. The RNG has a state (which is determined at the start of the mission somewhat randomly), and every time a random number is needed, it 'steps forward', generating the next number...

    If Hunker cuts line of sight in this game (as it did in EU/EW), there's no indication of it that I've seen. It would make the "automatically hunker all the time" perk really useless, after all.

    Where did you get to specifically buy an acid grenade? They don't appear as an item you can choose to buy anywhere I've seen. You can get them from map rewards, and from the experimental grenade...

    It should certainly be possible, given the loot tables are in the game data files to be modded, to add eleriums cores as a drop for ADVENT troops, for instance. If an alien unit drops loot, it...

    I tried not to consume anything of new material once the embargo was over, so I have been surprised by one enemy, and how that enemy appeared, and how the Codex appeared.

    If you have the opportunity to do so... I had the supplies and intel to buy a few recently, and none turning up in the Black Market or HQ.

    I did get the impression in the various bits of publicity pre-release that you could get a less-good victory for some mission types even if you extracted without wiping out the enemy. Even though it...

    Do you connect to the internet with a USB network adapter, particularly USB WiFi or mobile phone tethering? That has a bizarre issue with some games, related (I'm told) to old NDIS drivers - Windows...

    They have announced that they will be adding native Steam controller support, which is a bit different from an official controller profile.

    Given your system is below the minimum requirements, I'd just turn all settings to minimum, and I'm not sure you can expect any improvement beyond that. Lower resolution might help.

    It can't be a problem with the RNG itself, because is simply no result from the RNG that would produce that result. Thus, while there may be a problem, it's not necessarily the RNG.

    If your advertised percentage is 50% or higher, it gets multiplied by 1.2 on Rookie and 1.1 on Veteran, and extra boosts added if you've missed multiple shots in a row on everything except legendary....

    And judging by the ini, you'd have to do it on Legendary to get chances that match those shown, as there are cheats (in favour of the player) on all lower difficulties.
