Re: Impossible hit

I had another incident with the same Mantis ship type, where a single fired Heavy Laser Mk I damaged the weapons through two shields, and I remember the shot coming from the lower left. I think it depends on the angle of the shot whether the impossible hit is triggered. Could it be that the clone ba...

Re: The Long Game

until we explore the limits of the variable storing the score... :-) An unfortunate incident revealed some clues about the likely limits of the highest high score in FTL. Instead of continuing a game, this screen popped up: https://s2.postimg.org/6xexq2fnd/2017-05-26-05.png I dreaded that it was a ...

Re: The Long Game

I don't know about mods... my fear that they would spoil the game for me is still greater than my curiosity. Also, it would make it difficult to brag about new achievements. :-)

Re: The Long Game

Long-awaited updates! Yay! Some more flawless victories (48 in total) and I recently wrapped up the three remaining achievements: Clash of Titans, Ancestry and Coming in for my Pacifism Run. Clash of Titans took seven dedicated runs with the Bravais, all aptly named Rocky. https://s11.postimg.org/h1...

Re: Impossible hit

Once more an impossible hit (against a clone bay again), only the Burst Laser I was fired from the salvo:

Re: Into The Breach - The next game by Subset

Woah, can't say I expected something like this! But it's right in my preferred type of games again, I've played them all! Battle Isle, History Line, Battle Isle II, Panzer General, Fantasy General, even Advance Wars... looking forward to Subset's implementation of square instead of hex strategy.

No clue then, sorry - the game runs fine on Linux Mint 17.x KDE here.

Re: FTL won't open on Xubuntu. [Linux]

How do you start the game? Maybe open a console, change to your FTL directory and ./FTL from there. I'm also getting nervous seeing blanks in file and directory names, so to be on the very safe side you could rename your directory to just FTL, as opposed to 'FTL Faster Than Light'.

Re: FTL won't open on Xubuntu. [Linux]

Try

Code: Select all

locate libIL.so
- the missing libraries should be in the game (sub)directories for amd64 and x86 - if not, something went wrong with installation. You can start and play the game outside the Steam environment, by the way.

Re: Crash on boot LinuxMint 17.3

It is very likely a bad save, but reinstalling the game won't help with that, as your profile - ae_prof.sav - and your current game (if present) - continue.sav - are not stored in the game directory, but in ~/.local/share/FasterThanLight I guess one or both .sav files will be 0 bytes. You can rename...
