A Question
« on: May 16, 2014, 03:53:47 pm »
So i have a game on Steam, Gratuitous Space Battles, and it's been suffering a game-breaking glitch that prevents me from selecting frigates when i go to enter a battle.  Fighters and cruisers work just fine, but frigates don't appear in the selection list.  It's not a one time thing, every time i go to play it, it does this.

What i'm wondering is if i could uninstall and then reinstall the game without having to pay for it again.  I'm assuming yes, but it's not a risk i want to take; the game wasn't very cheap for what it is.

Nomads are good; very good if you like frigates.  I have a design that can take on basically anything, if there are enough of them.  Three can obliterate most cruisers, and other frigates are like candy... metallic, explosive, expensive candy.

Tribe is good too, cannons and auto-repair.

Least favorite is The Empire.  Their ships are made of Styrofoam or something, they just crumble away no matter how many shields i put on them.

No, it gets chewed up instantly.  Shields and auto-repair, but i put an emphasis on speed.  My frigates have around 0.40 speed most the time, some even go up to 0.60!  I even had a couple of cruisers that got up to 0.30.  Oh yeah, and ion cannons are the way to go.  They blow up everything.

Oh, also, you ever you decoy fighters?  Just stick the most basic type of engine on a fighter and it goes REEEEAAAALLLLLY fast.  They can't hurt anyone, but the enemy will be so distracted trying to shoot them (which is impossible unless they have a tractor beam) that your other ships will be ignored most of the time.  They distract other fighters too, so it's a good way to let slower bombers get in close.

ive never thought of having decoy fighters. thats smart. ill have to use that next time. and so far ive found that bombers dont work to well for me, they always get shot down. but i guess thats where the decoys help.  btw does your game lag? cause it used to run fine and dandy but for some reason, now it lags whenever ships start taking hull damage.

Don't lag for me unless it's a really big fight with lots of fighters flying around like madmen.  Then it lags sometimes, especially if i speed the game up.

You could always adjust the graphics options if that's what's slowing it down.
