Re: Evasion Math question

I have a question that I asked somewhere else but no one knew the answer: Once the RNG determines that the ship will be hit, how is it determined which rooms is hit? In particular - do 2 square rooms have half the chance of being hit compared with 4 square rooms? My subjective gaming experience sugg...

Re: MY FIRST VICTOR......Wait, what?....FUUUUUUUU

and the power surge is much weaker then the one in st2.


...if you have cloaking.

In my last game I didn't get a cloak so stage 3 raped me much harder than stage 2. After Stage 2 I lost 3 hull, after stage 3 I had only about half my hull left.

Re: Netbooks playing FTL successfully?

What exactly is the problem? Do those netbooks have too little performance or are they just getting too hot and shutting down? If it's the latter you may try to limit the fps by using the option "frame limiter" (or something similar) and also putting the vsync option "on" in the ...

Re: Universe Project - Most ambitious game

Hehe, sure man thanks :D

But as I said I hope the other guy (he's a KAG player) gives me a beta key but thanks for the offer, but we can try to settle near each other either way, no problem.

Re: Closest fights you've won?

My third win and my first with the Basilisk. http://postimage.org/image/59ofecwxh/ Look at the two guns! :lol: that's 10 shots in total! I was playing really badly and was very surprised that I actually managed to kill the boss in the end. I had 4 gold-level Mantis and lost all of them in the first ...

Re: Universe Project - Most ambitious game

Well if they didn't charge full price but maybe half I'd actually consider it but why on earth would I take my chances if afterwards it costs just as much? That just incentivices me to wait and see if it turns out any good, if so THEN I can spend my money. If I take a risk on a game I expect to get ...

Re: Universe Project - Most ambitious game

No, but I know someone from another forum who may possibly throw me a beta key once they start it. Personally I'm not sure if this game is gonna be awesome enough to pay whole 25$ before I'm certain it's good. It looks good and promising but still has lots of potential to fail, or at least it might ...

Re: disappointed with final boss.

I've won twice on easy now after 40 games of which I would classify about 25 as serious attempts. The other 15 I was just dicking around and made stupid things to unlock some achievements or try out stuff. I'm certainly not a hardcore gamer, so I cannot understand how the boss is supposed to be too ...
