Wipe non advanced edition scores

Postby Smauler » Tue Oct 07, 2014 4:05 am

Is there a way to get rid of standard edition scores?

I used to regularly troll the rebels to get silly scores in the standard mode (generally with the basilisk or shivan). However, this is not possible any more.

All my high scores are still there though, and there's no way to ever beat them. All my records will never be beat, because the game has changed.

Is there a way to wipe non-advanced high scores and records from your FTL whilst keeping all the unlocks?

Or at least to just see only advanced scores?

Probably not. You could just start a new profile and unlock everything, it in itself is fun.

Looking at ae_prof.sav I'd say so. If you are familiar with hex editors and stuff like that, it does not seem too difficult (just some try and verify). If not, you can try to use some profile editor out there, if they can't wipe out your scores, surely you can restore the unlocks from a blank profile.
Obviously, before touching anything, make a backup.

Just out of curiosity, why is this no longer possible? Did they remove extra scores from rebel farming in one of the patches?

I think because they introduced the Anti-Ship Battery.
I never played FTL pre-AE, but I suppose that without ASB you could farm virtually forever in sector 7. Now it's difficult, but actually not impossible (especially in nebulae).

It used to be the case that if going for a high score you'd do the system normally, then go back to every system and clear out the rebels from each. You'd get just one fuel from each, which enables you to keep going, no scrap, but score from killing ships. It didn't help you materially in any way, but it could massively boost your score.

You generally didn't need many weapons - either just teleport 4 mantis in, or a couple of stone men with a fire bomb.

The advanced edition introduced the anti ship battery, which stopped this.
