Welp.

I was making good progress on winning with every ship on Hard from a clean save. My first run in the Rock C was proving to be an absolute blinder, successfully decrewing almost every enemy ship and managing to reach the Crystal sector, unlocking the Crystal A.

Then we had a brownout.

And when the power came back and I rebooted my computer? My save file has been completely wiped.

The game was already fighting me tooth-and-nail just to get this far (multiple at-flagship defeats in Stealth C, horrific RNG screw in the Rock B and Lanius B, having to play both the Kestral B and Stealth A eight times each to finally get a win, etc.), so clearly it just doesn't want me to get it done.

And you know, what, game?

Fine.

You win.

I am never playing FTL again... I can take a hint...

It's nice when everything in your life is suicide-inducingly depressing. It's just nice.

Maaaaan, seriously?

Those matters with save files wiping out, they are easily and quickly solvable in case of FTL, by making a simple .bat file (assuming you're Windows) which copies your save files to a separate location, and then making a task in your OS' built-in scheduler to run this .bat file like every couple minutes. FTL save files are so incredibly small this won't stress your PC at all - while providing you near-real-time backup for your save, making it entirely protected against any brownouts. At worst you'd lose a minute of gameplay or so.

I am sure google can tell you details about how to do this. And yep, condolences on the good run wiped by those lazy electricians or somesuch... It happens. Don't let it get you down, man.

Hi all!

I've just installed the Captain's Edition and I have a small visual problem with it:

For a person with OCD that is a somewhat annoying thing to look at. :D

I have these mods turned on and I believe they are in the correct order:

What can I do to fix it?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Having some issues with CTD's. Sometimes a beacon will crash me, a couple runs ago any attempt to leave a beacon didn't close the game but froze the image (game was still marked as running in task manager) and remained unresponsive for an hour before i closed it. Combat augments almost unilaterally cause a crash, though as I'm using the 60-bar reactor ship "The Potential" I imagine that's probably an incompatibility. Latest one crashes the game every time i defeat some form of automated scout. Both this one and the beacon-leaving pseudocrash wiped the current run save after crashing twice. Also, unsure if it's related to anything, since the game loads fine and seems to run fine barring these, the initial loading bar appears shifted slightly up and to the right of the image meant to contain it. all other in-game text appears fine.

Unsure of what information exactly is needed, so pasting everything considered relevant.

For anyone having crashes on FTL+CE:

Apparently GOG also allows you to download older installers, but only for windows, and only using their galaxy downloader thingy. Linux version, nope.


I want to tell you that I'm working (still) on socializing events rework for CE. I did currently about 75% of the work (1 event for engi and whole AI, Lanius and Crystal left).

Is there anyone interested in such an "expansion". It's been years since last update for CE and some other mods and overhauls came out probably during that time.

Can someone share his latest working modlist? Is there any progress in modding community or it is dead?
Can you share links?
How about reverted version of the game? Anyone experienced crashes?

Hey there - a question.

I just installed FTL fresh and downloaded CE fresh. However, when the loading screen is loading for CE after I've installed it with Slipstreams (no other mods), the loading bars do not load inside of the little station icon. Is this normal? I recall that this is something that turned up with the new variant of FTL - is it something minor that was just never fixed?

Thanks,

That's because Captain's Edition hasn't been updated for a while (and sadly seems it won't ever be),the same happen with other mods like Arsenal+ at the moment.

Ah OK. That's fine - just wanted to know. Not the end of the world at all. I'm busy making my own modmod of Captain's Edition, but sadly I'm inept at graphics so that's not something I can fix...
