Re: Can't run Oolite on Ubuntu 12.04

Trying to install a new version of Nvidia drivers gave me a bunch of errors, culminated to an error stating that it couldn't find the linux headers. This seems more invovled that I first expected and may take a bit of time to fix.

Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous - Kickstarter!

Hi, Sorry I have been away for quite a while. I was very excited to see a new version of Oolite announced as recently as a few days ago. I was worried that with the coming of E:D whether Oolite would be the target of some kind of lawsuit or lack of developer interest. I am happy to see that work is ...

Help with installing 1.76 on Ubuntu

I haven't been around for a while, but I figured I would install 1.76. However it seems like I am completely failing at doing that. I downloaded oolite-1.76.linux-x86.tgz and extracted oolite-1.76.linux-x86.run. I put that in my home directory. Then I opened a terminal window and typed sudo oolite-1...

I saw it on Friday and I liked it quite a bit. It's a sequel to Tron showcasing how much special effects have imporved since 1982. If you go expecting that and not Dr. Zhivago or Gone with the Wind, you will have a great time. The reviewers I have read that didn't like it, really missed that point c...

Since you are the only person playing the game, it's not really cheating.
I have two games. One where I played without editing anything and one where I completely trick out my ship from the start and change things when I feel like it.

To send you cash, do I stick the cash in the floppy drive or in the CD drive?
Do I need currency conversion software on my end?

I think this is an awesome idea. I'm sure it will be quite neat.

However I can't help but think of a comedy piece about accents that I just saw, so I am posting it here, as it's relevance will be clear upon watching it.

I tend to like the OXPs that give extra ships and stations for variety. So Commies,YAH,Free Trade Zone, deep space pirates, stuff like that.
