Re: 67 hours without a single win, am I doing something wron

As was already said, evasion = win ! I didn't put too much attention to the engines in my first games, too. But you should really have at least 45% evasion as soon as possible. Just think about it. Nearly half of the missiles fired at you will just miss! A good way to train your evasion crew is when...

Re: The role of missiles

Ok, then that's what I already know, thank you 5thHorseman! :) @Topic: Personally I prefer bombs over missiles. It's good to have such an "emergency-weapon" at hand if you are facing a strong enemy. You can easily turn on a small bomb or an ion bomb, because of it's small power consumption...

Re: The role of missiles

In addition, their very nature as consuming limited resources constricts them to a role as extravagant emergency weapons considering that we get paid more for taking ships intact than shattering their hulls with rockets. Does it really give you more scrap if the enemy ship isn't breached everywhere...

Re: Fuck you, Rebel Flagship.

Last time the Flagship hacked my weapons! This is very annoying, especially since I used a Glaive Beam, so the first stage became veeeery long. Luckily my boarders were able to take out the rocket launcher, so the flagship wasn't able to hurt me. So in the end the hack was not horrible (like I thoug...

Turning off vertical sync and frame limit could improve your fps.

Re: Advanced Edition: First impressions thread

Unfortunately the AI doesn't seem to be good with it at all. They actually hacked my helm often, which can be pretty nasty. Also, I feel their ion bombs prioritize targets better, since they seem to target less empty rooms. Often they also ionized my weapons, which happened to me not very often bef...

Re: To AE or not to AE, that is the question...

Guy, like KeronCyst mentioned you could try system restore, it should work perfectly. After that you can just copy the FTL folder to another location (and your profiles folder!), like I already said OR you just start FTL without even starting Steam by opening ...\Steam\SteamApps\common\FTL Faster Th...

Re: To AE or not to AE, that is the question...

1. AE contains a button to enable only the original game content. 2. You can just copy your game folder out of the steam folder and use it as a portable version, just like the Humble version. But don't forget to save your profile data in user/documents/My Games/FasterThanLight, too! Better try it ou...
