Re: In game FTL ship maker

The one thing I would like in this game is a ship maker. Beginning of game you can select custom for a customizable ship. Make it easy with you can choose a few lay outs. Start with like a pool of 30 points and adding in like one human crew member cost 1 point, or a laser version one is 1 point but...

Re: guests should get accounts

Really, there is little reason to login until one is ready to reply to a message. When you log in, you can get a list of all the messages that were posted since you last visited. Very useful if you don't want to miss anything, or don't want to go through every sub-forum to find if there is anything...

Re: Naming : Totally random?

One of the perks of funding the game through Kickstarter was that you could choose one name for the crew. I guess some of the backers were fans of Buffy. :)

Re: [MOD] Hold the Line

This was apparently one of the very first mods. It was never converted to use the .ftl file format; even if you found a copy somewhere, it most likely would not work with current FTL versions.

Re: Crash on start up...

This may be a video driver issue. What graphics card (or graphics chip) do you have? Have you verified your video drivers are up-to-date? What operating system are you using?

Re: Startup Fail

I´m going to buy a new one soon, though. Looking at the Lenovo G780 M84ADUK atm, I guess that will have an okay openGL version :) With a dedicated NVIDIA card, it should work fine. ;) I see that the laptop only has 1366x768 pixels, this is a bit low nowadays, but thankfully it is enough for FTL. FT...

Re: Startup Fail

Don't worry, I cannot hack your computer with the information you gave me. ;) Unfortunately, it seems you are using an Intel chip, which have notoriously flaky driver support (especially with 3D). Your OpenGL information shows you have version 1.4 support in your driver. FTL requires at least versio...

Re: FTL Freezes on Loading Screen - Steam Install

Well, it looks like you've investigated quite a bit already. :)

What graphics card do you have? Have you made sure you are using the latest drivers?
