Re: Q: How do you kill drones?

I once shot down my own defence drone because it swung in front of my lasers just as they were firing. You sure it wasn't an enemy projectile? I didn't think you could shoot down your own drones. I'm pretty sure I've done it. Shot down enemy drones too. It's fairly noticeable when my shot just disa...

Re: So, how did your first run go?

Fourth run (still easy mode) last sector, stage 3! :o I'd have done better if I had enough firepower to reliably overwhelm a four-layer shield, but somehow I ended up with a burst laser 2, heavy ion, fire beam, and system bomb (with a missile shortage) - no offensive drones. The fire beam actually h...

Re: 'lo devs - what gives?

Can't say I've overmuch sympathy for a proponent of unabashed save scumming . Catering to this instant-gratification mentality is a small, but significant reason why PC gaming is in decline. Like Binding of Isaac, FTL just wasn't designed to win every time. Stuff's supposed to go wrong, and the whol...

Re: Huge FPS Problems

Hard to say without knowing anything about the platform you're running it on. Works great on my NVIDIA GTS 450 with fully updated drivers, if that's of any help.

Re: Help!

Should be pretty quick - it was neigh instant when I made my purchase about 7am this morning, Look for an email titled, "Thanks for purchasing FTL: Faster Than Light." You can also send an email to contact@humblebundle.com for help. I'm assuming you purchased direct through ftlgame.com and...

Re: no buy button on steam.

Give it another half hour. Unless I'm mistaken, the game unlocks for purchase via Steam at 11am PST.

Re: Random encounter results random?

Yes, just about every event you'll encounter has a number of different things that can happen at random. Your odds of a favorable outcome are improved (but not guarenteed) if you have something that gives you a blue option.

It's supposed to have taken you to the next screen where you can download it. Fortunately, this may yet be recoverable. Since completing a Paypal transaction requires the use of your email, they should have the correct email address. Check your email, you should be getting a link from the humble ind...

Re: So, how did your first run go?

Hah, indeed so! Death number three, two words: Slug treachery . (Apparently leaning heavily on offense to keep you safe - as having a weapon pre-igniter tends to make one wont to do - can be rather problematic when your weapons suddenly aren't available. My two layers of shielding just wasn't enough...

Re: So, how did your first run go?

My second run was another "things were going great until" situation... Things were going great until I encountered a mantis ship. No problem, he only had one shield, no doubt my Hull Smasher I laser would soon have his weapons down. Of course, he soon beamed over his crew but I put down th...
