You have to have both installed. When the HD version detects you have the SD version, the first add-on unlocks automatically.

What the heck why isn't there iPhone 5 support? What a waste

Add-on question

This is a great game. I downloaded it for free, then paid for the $9.99 combo-package of Valkyrie&Supernova. Here's my question:

This was all done on my iPod 4G. If/when I get an iPad and want to transfer the game over, will it recognize my IAP of the expansion packs? Or will I be expected to pay for them again?

Thanks for your help.

That shouldn't be a problem. I've transferred the game across 4 different devices and I have never lost any progress or IAPs.
You may have to go to Game Options / Add-ons / Restore Purchases, but I haven't found that necessary.

This is a fantastic game! Great story, everything is interchangable. You play your way! It's kinda like a space Skyrim. I had Galaxy on Fire since 2010 and I found out a few months ago that there was a free version, too! Amazing sequel, I love how the Vossk are still there. I saw them in the map and I was all Grr I hate Vossk! Anyway, great game. Amazing, amazing graphics for a relatively small memory space for how much content it has. You need this game, no doubt.

I haven't dug back too far into this thread, so forgive me if this has been discussed. I decided to load up the game today for the first time in a few months, and immediately I noticed a huge amount of lag and frame skipping that was never there before. I have an iPad 2 and the game used to run like butter. I had also installed it on an iPad 3 when that came out without issues, and since then I've updated it without playing so I'm not sure when this chugging issue was introduced.

I'm hoping its some setting meant for retina iPads that I can't find that I can turn off, and not something that prevalent because it makes the game unplayable right now, and I was considering the expansion upgrades. Thanks for any tips.

I have these issues too

The issue with the lag is when Game Center tries to connect. Check your internet connection and possibly sign out then back into your GC app.
