Re: lost files

If you have the game through Steam, you can right click it in the library, click Properites, the Local Files tab, then click "verify file integrity" and it should re-download any files you are missing.

Re: Firing arcs - for GSB 2

If we do have firing arcs In GSB 2 there better be away to enhance the controls of the ship so you can take advantage of those arcs. Having a ship randomly engaging different targets without concern of which weapons can fire would be a disaster. Agreed, there already seem to be some existing issues...

Re: Firing arcs - for GSB 2

I also like it however some weapons would definitely not be affected by this such as missiles which could just turn after being launched any direction. it would also add the possibility of weapons which are more expensive but have a greater arc or a full 360 degree arc (think a defensive turret whic...

The above thread has a post by Aeson which really lays out a strategy for Campaign mode.

Re: Campaign Advice

Holy crap,thanks for typing all that out Aeson! The post is worthy of a thread on its' own. Most of what you guys have said I kind of figured out myself but you have confirmed and refined the strategy. It is clear I'll have to make use of fighters quite a bit more, as well as limit specialization of...

Re: Crashes and another issue during Galactic Conquest

Thanks Aeson, what you have explained makes sense to me. It seems my crashes are more severe as sometimes I cannot reload the same campaign. I'm pretty busy so the time I can spend trying to fix a game is limited however I appreciate your post, thanks again!

Campaign Advice

I can't seem to conquer more than 5-10 planets before my empire starts falling apart. What are some general pointers to do well in this mode?

Campaign specific modules

I have been enjoying the campaign mode quite a bit and I would like to suggest a few campaign specific modules and encourage others to post their ideas as well as critique mine and others. I didn't think too hard about these so don't be too harsh! Escape Pods: These handy little rocket-powered chair...

Re: Engineless-ships shouldn't be able to attack in campaign

I understand this, but on the flip-side they can be considered a replacement for stations which do not exist in GSB at this time. That justification would be acceptable if the engineless ships were attacked, however it doesn't make sense for a "station" to invade another system. I'm with ...

Re: Crashes and another issue during Galactic Conquest

I will post the errors.txt if I have time in the future.

So, deleting fleet designs is a known issue? Is there any solution or fix to this? As this does seem to be correlated to my crashes, I will begin my troubleshooting there.

Re: The Dark Side

I should add that my experiences are almost exclusively in the campaign mode. While it seems like a good idea to make more versatile ships in this mode due to the limitations of fleet size due to resources/crew, you will inevitably run into a fleet that is entirely composed of a spam cruiser or many...

Re: The Dark Side

On the point of spamming, I'd like to point out that I often end up running a lot of plasma weapons sometimes including one or two cruisers in my fleet that have the max amount of plasma weapons and the reason is because these are the only weapons (except missiles and short-range lasers) that can ge...

Re: Crashes and another issue during Galactic Conquest

I should add that I purchased the game via Steam and run it on an older PC, with a first-generation dual core (I think 1.3ghz/core) and 4gb of ram upgraded from 2. Windows XP. I've attempted to uninstall and reinstall the game, searched for similar issues online, the usual things.

Crashes and another issue during Galactic Conquest

Hello, I'd like to begin by saying I love the game, it's a lot of fun and very difficult in the Galactic Conquest mode. However, I have been having regular crashes that prevent me from advancing very far (provided I can actually get good enough to take over the galaxy :)). These crashes seem to happ...
