Noether doesn't have his great loadout anymore. :< I really enjoyed the two burst ions and two beam lasers.

Yeah, we all knew that this "free-access-to-sector-5" ticket wouldn't last for ever, didn't we? It was fun, but it also gets boring after you played the ship a few times.

Did the mine launcher fire before the missile launchers? I think the drone prioritizes projectiles by order of appearance - and it only actually SHOOTS when the first target is at a set distance from the ship. (or the shield ellipse?)


Yes. The defense drone was targeting the mine, but didn't fire. Just aimed at it until impact. It ignored the one-second-later triple missile impact entirely :D
I wish that would work against enemy defense drones aswell...

Hello, new user here, has anyone seen the crash-to-desktop error "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way" titled "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library"? It happened with 1.083-4, though I have not played FTL in a while so earlier versions might be susceptible. I installed Better Planets And Backgrounds under the OP's recommendation, but had not played CE with BPAB before. BPAB is on top of the list in the Mod Manager so presumably not a load order issue there, but I also use the New Game Booster and Crystal Quest mods. Anyone know any possible problems?

Edit: There is also a warning while patching CE in the mod manager "Warning: unsupported folder: mod-appendix".
Edit2: Music of main menu plays when I re-patched to CE 1.072, but loading screen freezes and no mouse or interation avalible. Changing tabs crashes program to desktop with no error message.

That's a general crash. Can you provide information as to what enemy you were fighting / what sector you were in / what event you had encountered / etc?

You have to update the manager. You can download the newest version (1.4) here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=17102

Oh, thank you! And it crashes as soon as the load screen completes.

Edit: My god this new mod manager is so much faster!

Application now hangs instead of crashes. Closest thing to functionality I have is seeing the main menu after loading, but freezes instantaneously. Task manager is required to close it.

EDIT: Problem is with BPAB. Removing that allows it to load the menu even with the latest CE version. How vital is Better Planets now to CE may I ask?

Make sure you're using the most recent version of BPAP, which is currently on 1.3.1

Also in Slipstream, make sure BPAP loads *before* CE.

Finally, BPAP downloads as a 7z file, you need to extract the .ftl file from it rather than renaming it.

I think I just renamed it, which explains the crashing chances are.

I did all of the above, and it still freezes on the main menu after the loading screen. The only difference this time was that the screen was blank white when it froze.
