Re: Couple of question regarding Normal difficulty and gamep

If you spend lots of scrap on repairs, something is going wrong. First goal always has to be to avoid damage. Always have enough shields to soak up any shots. Take out their weapons quickly. For missile defense either Def drone 1 or enough weapons to take out their launchers immediatly. Boarding par...

Re: Boss stage 2

Def Drone 1 is more reliable as it does not get distracted by shooting down lasers.

Re: FTL Version 1.03.0 - Hotkeys and More! - Live on Steam

Ok, so upgrading from the release version works, but not from the patch before that, pretty annoying! I'm not the only one, long list of complainers in the gog subforum.

Re: FTL Version 1.03.0 - Hotkeys and More! - Live on Steam

Is the updated version on gog.com supposed to be this new 1.03.0 ? When I try to apply it, it says already updated and it has none of the new features when I start the game.

Re: Replayability of FTL?

I played about 150 times now, so pretty high! But it does get somewhat less exciting once you get really good at the game, meaning you win easily like every time. But then there will be ship unlocks which are hard to play again for a while, or forever (like Stealth B).

Re: I think FTL should be easier

It was the combination of factors really: My doors had been taken down to one, so invaders marched through them (then I lost all control), there were fires, I couldn't see what was going on because the sensors were down.... That was my point. A combination of bad luck making the game impossible fro...

Re: I think FTL should be easier

Please don't do that to me game, it's not fun when you're in a no-win situation. I don't mind losing when I've screwed up, but don't just decide it's time for me to lose. :evil: If you play more and get better at the game, you will learn to deal with these situations, provided you always realise an...

Re: Boss stage 2

Hmm I always have 4 shields and around 50% evasion at the last stand. Never had much of a problem with the power surges even without cloak.

Re: FTL Version 1.03.0 - Hotkeys and More!

If anyones curious (like me) and can't wait to see the colourblind mode, I found a pic:
