Re: More Mac Newbie problems - OXPs not working

Probably obvious and you probably did this, but, did you press shift as you started oolite?

Re: Audio fails

thats ok, I'm just reporting what I'f finding rather than demanding solutions. In my office rather than my mac here, I have a machine running parallels- I'll see if the windows version runs without fault through the macs hardware. Then at least we'll know if it is a code thing or a code plus hardwar...

Re: Introduce Yourself.

Hello everyone again, returning member here, still ever so happy that I can play elite on a mac, with a joystick, and in full colour with multichannel sound.

Finally it seems that a modern computer can game almost as well as an old 8 bit.

Re: Audio fails

Ok so....... The problem started up again, and I shall try to describe. It can happen both in combat and if I am docked. In combat when I kill someone it seems like the last sound played during that combat gets looped ad nauseam. Sometimes I get the impression that when I go into combat again, then ...

Re: Audio fails

reviving a two year old topic, but in the heat of the battle my audio doesn't cut out, but gets a massive amount of distortion and/or feedback.

A restart solves it- but only until the next battle.

I wonder if there is a way of stopping the sound from the lasers?

Re: Introduce Yourself.

I had noticed something different haha probably getting murdered at Diso was a hint. The game is certainly more challenging, or seems to be, not had that ' excellent I might just about be alright at this thing' moment yet, but there's still time. Loving the new menu screens, installing OXP, well OZP...

Re: i'm going wiki crazy i think, but

i did a fresh install of oolite - no oxp- and always press shift on opening yes you may be right, perhaps because there are more types of boas- marks 2s etc, i'm imagining the lowly numbers of anacondas i might dig around in some oxps and see what they do- had a brief look at commies, and they plop ...

Re: I seem to be in some sort of zoom ooniverse

thanks- i'll do that over the weekend. I spent a good evening last night travelling through galaxy 2, and while i did, I noticed this: when I start oolite, and load up my player, for the first few jumps and exits from stations and hermits, all is well- the yellow messages appear above the HUD and th...
