Basically, you build your ships with parts . Each time you defeat your opponents, you loot another set of parts and the possibility to upgrade one. The game is played solely with the mouse. Each level gets progressively harder . Once you have built a good enough ship, you can try to challenge the bosses ( only 1 atm, and he isnt fully equiped or coded) or defeat the royal fleet.


Controls :
Arrow keys : Move the camera
U : While in the hangar, upgrades the nearest part
I : While in the hangar, gives you detailed info of the part.
P : Pauses the game, allowing you to save and load files.
Left Click : While in hangar : Move parts. While in combat rooms : Select , Box-Select , Build menu.
Right Click : While in hangar : Drag to orient parts . While in combat rooms : Issue a move order, attack order.
M : Mute the annoying music
F : Move in formation

Upcoming : More parts, more enemy ships , more bosses. Different game modes such as destroy a convoy, escort a convoy, assault a starbase. Good music . Replace some sprites ( all are placeholders atm) into their final version.

Any input on optimisation-gameplay and such is appreciated. Thank you very

Sorry for the response, i rarely visit the forums anymore.

The pass is "Pass" if i remember correctly, then you have to input one of the following :
"Bored" : Unlocks all missions and arena bosses
"Money" : Gives alot of money and credits
"Doom" : Kills all enemies

I have to admit i forgot the rest, those were the ones i used the most and i no longer have the gmk with me so i can't look it up.

Does playing in fullscreen not help ? I had tried lowering the resolution but it made the game unplayable, you could either not see enough of the battle or the graphics were really ugly.

Main parts are those which are at the bottom of the screen, not those attached to a core.

Good luck

PS : This topic is better dead and buried, try to respond in the other one, the one with 4 pages please :)
