    FTL for linux

    With the hype around FTL i just wanted to remind everybody that you can get FTL for linux when you buy the game directly trough the website:
    http://www.ftlgame.com/

    Not steam or GOG, but directly trough the website Only tested it quickly, everything seems to work fine, going to play it a little more when i have time, had a really great time with the beta under windows.

    I couldn't agree more, they really made a terrific game. The only thing I really wish they would have done was to make modding easier.

    Someone should tell them to get the game onto Desura.

    Who knows maybe they will in the future I'm sure they have looked into it.

    Re: FTL for linux

    Is there an easy way to install a launcher for this game?
    I created one but had to edit the "FTL" shell file to get it to run. It works fine but it changes the screen resolution for the game and doesn't change it back upon exiting the game. I'm a newb at shell scripts so any help with this? Is there a command I can type in to reset the screen res on exit?

    For those who have not purchased the Linux native version, I can confirm that it is working with WINE without any modification (at least with the GOG purchased installer). I didn't know it was on Linux, and didn't find out until after! All is not lost however, thanks to WINE!
