Solution to make Gold Edition compatible with community mods
With this solution you will be able to install any mod from the community, like the complete version of Bman's Easy Mod.

1. Optional: backup the following files:

UFO Extraterrestrials Gold\data\bman.xbg
UFO Extraterrestrials Gold\data\geoscape.xbg
UFO Extraterrestrials Gold\data\system.xbg
UFO Extraterrestrials Gold\UFO_ET.exe

2. Delete the file "bman.xbg" (and the "bmaneaseofuse.ini" if it exists)

3. Replace "geoscape.xbg" with the vanilla version.

4. Apply the official patch - "patch2"

download link: http://www.ufo-extraterrestrials.com/download.htm)
download link(2): http://www.mediafire.com/folder/m7pmphbp8j73p/UFO_ET

This patch includes all the fixes from previous patch1 and will copy the following files to your installation folder:

.data\patch.xbg
.data\system.xbg
patch2.txt
ProjectX.exe
UFO_ET.exe

(ProjectX.exe and UFO_ET.exe are binary identical. So, if you want, delete ProjectX.exe . I guess they included this two identical files for compatibility with shortcuts for versions that use ProjectX.exe as the game launcher).

Now, your game is no more the Gold version (EN-20091004 BMan’s Mod) but the Vanilla version (EN-20071001).

note: replacing the Lite version of Bman's Mod (aka Gold Edition) with the Complete version will fix some major bugs present in the Gold Edition (ex: game crashing when selling buildings repeatedly; unlimited Desert Spirit vehicles exploit).

What does this accomplish? Thought Bman's complete is already part of the Gold? Incorrect on my part?

The mod included in the Gold edition is a lite version of Bman's Mod.
Bman's complete mod has some features and content that was removed from the Gold edition for copyright reasons (ex: alliens from the original x-com).

Also the Gold Edition has some annoying issues like the game crashing when selling buildings or the Desert Spirit selling bug/exploit. Applying the complete Bman's Mod solves this.

The best mod available to this game is called Grayfiends UniMod. It was based on Bman's work and supports the Gold edition. It solves the Gold Ed issues and adds lots of things to the game, including the content from Bman's but, unlike Bman's mod, it forces some hardcore features that some people don't like.

Is there anyway to reduce the hardcore levels of the Grayfiend UniMod?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the link, good stuff in there! Except game is kind of slow, even after tweaking the graphical options (windows 8 + XP compatibility). Do you know if unimod have better performance?

I don't think the mod changes the game performance but try it.
