Re: Huge FPS Problems

A lot of the FPS problems on GetSatisfaction have been related to graphics drivers. As geldonyetich said, make sure they're current.

Re: Steam achievements?

The devs had some trouble implementing the Steam API, if I remember correctly, so I don't think Steam achievements will be coming soon.

Re: So ... the endboss .... (endboss spoilers)

Try to grab a hull repair drone on your next run if you can find one. That should keep your ship alive between battles. Where I think your build was really lacking was the weapons. The burst lasers don't fire often enough to keep the shields suppressed, and the halberd beam is at its best when the s...

Re: [Suggestion] Help players understand what isn't reachabl

okay.. but we need to definitely find a way so that a person doesn't find out the limit of the jumpdrive's range, by bleed ing through multiple game overs... I think that's exactly how a player should find the limits of their range, considering this is supposed to be a (semi)roguelike. It would onl...
