Re: Your "Fuck you, FTL" Moments

2 things; 1) a U shaped beacon map. of course, I went along the wrong way. fought through 11 elites before dying on the exit beacon. 2) Forgetting I have autofire/the artillery beam with boarders.... autofire toasted my two mantises just before section 8. All else I had was engis and zoltan.... I st...

Re: Multiplayer idea

I'd always imagines multiplayer would work better if 2 or 3 player ships started in random sectors of the first sector, and just played though as normal, unless one jumped onto the node of another. If so, they'd have a fight. Either one would kill another (eliminating the danger of an encounter late...

Re: Encouragement

I would pay attention to any upcoming project but I'd still evaluate it based on it's own merits.. mostly anyway. I feel in a similar manner- I know Subset has potential to make a great game, so I'd have a look, yet I wouldn't instantly buy If i didn't think it was as good. However, after FTL, I'm ...

Re: What specs are required?

My PC isn't very good; dual core 2.2ghz, 4gb ram, intel HD, and runs it at 35 fps. I don't know what you have but assuming it's relatively recent, it should be fine.

Re: Floaty Mouse; My slow PC or in by design

I actually managed to dredge through the Toshiba website.....(yes, it's a laptop.....a "satellite" "a L series" "a l750" and finally "an l750-1XH.....") and that told me.....the driver was actually up to date. Sorry to get your hopes up of managing to fix this...

Re: Are there any plans to have more customisation at the st

.it'd be nice to launch feeling like a god-king from the outset. I have to say, I think it would be fun to be able to start with the boss, once it's been defeated. then just fly around mushing everything with triple missiles..... There is a continue playing button, not sure what it's planned for ye...

Re: Floaty Mouse; My slow PC or in by design

I was playing fullscreen(black borders), though tried both fullscreen black borders, stretch fullscreen and windowed with the same effect- I have turned dynamic backgrounds off, do you think this may affect it? I did try with them on and off. Obviously there aren't a huge number of graphical options...

Re: Suggestions for FTL 2

My thoughts; 1) I have to say this would be awesome, however, I don't know if this is actually what's planned for the "continue playing", or it's the pressure of the rebels taken off, or any other aspect. 2)I think this constant slight lack of equipment and funds is a feature of a rougelik...

Re: Floaty Mouse; My slow PC or in by design

1) tried changing vsync to "application settings" on the control panel thing. No difference. For interest I ran fraps in the background, and the fps never dropped below 30. OK, it had a range between 35 and 50, but i'd have thought that 30 fps was easily enough. 2) attempted to update driv...
