Hi. I've just started to play this game (I bought it after I player Mr. Robot) and I've killed the boss in Zone 1. I've now travelled to zone 2 but the research button is still greyed out (I've met the aliens there who give you the ion lasers).

My understanding was that in normal mode you unlocked a new tier in each zone but it's frustrating to try to kill the enemies in that zone with everything on level one (bar blasters and station turrets which I was able to research to lvl 2).

I didn't know if it was a bug not giving me the next tech or I'd missed something.

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you got enough of all three resources? That shouldn't make the resource button grey out though, but worth a try.

Are you playing it on easy, normal or hard. On easy all non weapon research should be available.

Playing on normal you should still be able to research things like lvl2 engines and such even in the first zone.

No I could only research blasters lvl 2 and station turret lvl 2 and then it greyed out. No I had plenty of resources. I'm playing on Normal.

I found that after killing the boss on zone 2 it will let me research up to lvl 2 on the other items now (and lvl 3 blasters). So I'm assuming next tech (level 3) will unlock after defeating zone 3's boss.

sounds like you're playing on hard difficulty - at least you'll get your money's worth out of it Smile

Oh. I did wonder. Makes sense being on Hard (I just played it at the default it selected). It's not "too" bad, just the odd bit that I keep exploding on a couple of times.

Good fun though!
