Re: (Possible Spoiler) Victory, yet no Spoils

First off, did you beat all three of the boss' phases? If you are saying you only beat the first or second phase, then died soon after, you didn't actually beat the boss. (I'm not assuming that happened in this case, but it's a common thing to be unaware of - unless previously spoiled by reading the...

Re: Zoltan Exploit?

That only works for the duration of your current session. If you save and exit the game at any point, the shield's effects will be gone when you reload.

Re: Shield off better than shield on?

Yep, this is something I use often, especially if I have sufficient ion weapons of my own, and I have their weapons locked down. The side benefit to this trick, aside from the obvious negation of some damage, is that the crew manning the shield station gets experience for every point of shielding th...

Re: What happens if crew member were not teleported back?

To be fair, you can also jump out while you have boarders on your ship, as long as your FTL is functioning, charged, and someone's at the helm. It's just typically more perilous for you to jump that way (unless you're jumping to a safe location.)

Re: I feel like this game has too much correct play.

I acknowledge that it's just my luck, and that the gambler's fallacy may apply here, but every time I've opened the pod, I've lost a crew member. I've had that event at least a dozen times now, and tried opening the pod about 50% of the time. (Again, my luck just sucks. ;) ) If I happen to get that ...

Re: What happens if crew member were not teleported back?

If you've won a normal fight with your crew aboard the enemy ship (through surrender or killing their crew,) you get a popup message if you try to jump away, confirming if you want to leave the crew behind. (If you don't see this message, patch your game!) This gives you the opportunity to cancel th...

Re: Do augment stack?

The game won't allow you to get two of the Long Range Sensors, either...not that anyone should ever need to. :lol:

Re: Do enemies ever surrender when you're killing their crew

As far as I've seen, they don't surrender when you've locked down their shields, weapons, and are keeping their oxygen room constantly under ion attacks, either. It takes a while, but they just suffocate. ;) I concur that only hull damage is the trigger for the surrender message, if they're going to...

Re: Anyone rely most of their engagements on Autofire?

I found a rather fast method to cancel targets for multiple weapons (e.g. for the default weapons of the Kestrel B.) The weapon hotkeys are the 1-4 keys, so one can quickly pause the game and use those keys, instead of using the mouse to select and right click for each weapon separately. 1. Pause th...
