In the top left corner of the window, there are two tabs: "Profile" and "Saved Game".

When you intend to edit a profile ("ae_prof.sav"), switch to the "Profile" tab, and click its "Open..." button.

When you intend to edit a saved game ("continue.sav"), switch to the "Saved Game" tab, and click its "Open..." button.

Hello!

I tried to get the ftl.dat file hacked however, it just corrupted the file and I lost all my progress as I had no backup D':

When I moved over the file (ftl.dat) using Ifile, i had version 1.5.14 on my iPad which I downloaded from a place called appcake. After it moved onto my computer, I tried to open the ftl.dat file in the editor but none of the pictures of the ships show up and when I try to save the file it just says that it's a blank profile and something about eye-candy. I tried for hours again and again trying and retrying to get it to work but it was in vain I got nothing. Also, I cannot find any prof.sav files on my iPad and there are no other "ae_prof.sav" files either.

Plz help quick........

Sorry, the iPad edition is not supported because its resources packaged in a very different way.
The editor can only open an ftl.dat from Windows, OSX, or Linux editions.

Bonjour,
Je fonctionne avec Linux, avec Ubuntu et je viens d'installer le Ftl profile editor v27
Seulement au moment d'Open un profil, dans la liste il y a ae_prof.sav, je le selectionne mais voici ce qu'il me retourne dans une petite fenetre ( j'ai voulu vous envoyé un screen mais apparemment on ne peut pas ici ):

Reading profile ("ae_prof.sav") failed:
/home/vash/.local/share/FasterThanLight/ae_prof.sav (Permission non accordée)

y a t il quelque chose que je fais mal ? auriez vous une idée pour m'aider ?

Et un grand merci pour ce cheat qui va me permettre de rendre le jeux (encore) plus attrayant pour mon jeune fils :)

Toutes mes excuses, je ne connais pas le français, j'utilise donc Google Translate.

Essayez d’éditer pendant que FTL n’est pas en cours d’exécution. Le jeu conserve peut-être le fichier en cours d'utilisation.

Peut-être qu'un autre processus l'utilise? Essayez "fuser -uv ae_prof.sav"

Vous pouvez essayer "ls -al ae_prof.sav" pour examiner les autorisations du fichier. Je ne sais pas comment cela pourrait être foiré.

Ubuntu peut-être qu'AppArmor pourrait restreindre l'accès au fichier? Je ne sais rien à ce sujet.

Je suppose que cela signifie que vous avez ouvert le fichier avec succès?

L'outil crée des sauvegardes lorsqu'il enregistre. Si vous regardez dans ce répertoire, il y aura un fichier * .bak que vous pourrez renommer. J'espère que cette copie ne sera pas corrompue.

Not that I'm aware of, not directly.

I did a quick forum search for "ipad" in case there were recent developments since I last checked, but nothing turned up.

The following thread provides a link that says where the profile directory is. And it implies there is hope.

Thread: iPad progress backup & transfer

If you can install the Windows, OSX, or Linux edition, you can edit that "ae_prof.sav" with the editor, then transfer the profile to your iPad.

Hey first time using forums so please forgive me if this isnt how i ask a qeustion.

But i downloaded the latest version (v27) and cant find any saved files or continue files. The game of FTL i have is Steam version 1.6.9

Chrome thml doc) FTL_README
Application) FTLGame

Saved games will NOT be in Steam with the game itself.
The only time to go there is when setting up the editor for the very first time, to find the game's resources ("ftl.dat"). That's how it reads all the ship graphics and such.

Once it's set up...
When you run the editor, switch to the Saved Game tab, and click the "Open..." button, the dialog should already showing the correct location.

WinXP
".../My Documents/My Games/FasterThanLight/"

Vista/Win7/etc
".../Documents/My Games/FasterThanLight/"

Linux
"${XDG_DATA_HOME}/.local/share/FasterThanLight/"
"~/.local/share/FasterThanLight/"

OSX
"/Library/Application Support/FasterThanLight/"

You ought to see "continue.sav" in there. That's the file to open.
