    Try this. It's a remake, but I think it's the same.

    Hey

    The way to run it is with a small program that slows down your pc. Can't remember the name. That's the way I re-played it a couple of years ago. You can also give a try to UFO Afterlight, is the most similar game out there resembling Xcom

    Go to The Underdogs and look for "DOSBox" Dual-core seems to have problems with this, or at least did, if I remember right. Darn not being able to play System Shock 2. [​IMG]
