Re: Am I Really THAT Unlucky?

Thank you for the info, I will certainly give the testing a go as I have not successfully captured in many hours. I'll post findings.

Re: Am I Really THAT Unlucky?

Different route, same result. A Google search showed a release yesterday and I wasn't aware (I don't check the bulletins often).

So no I wasn't but yes I now am. Will that fix things?

Going to appear quite dim. How do I tell? Can't seem to find that info displayed?

Am I Really THAT Unlucky?

Hi all Every (and I do mean EVERY) derelict I try to collect/tug explodes on me. Every one. Every time. I am getting so frustrated. They either spin and explode through some booby-trap or explode through leaking gas whilst on my tow-bar. Every single frakking one. What have I downloaded, what has re...

JUST worked out I can update add-ons

:oops: Having updated for the first time ever (and I've been playing 18 months or so) I find the flight screen has significant changes. I have a lot of mods on my ship so I am having trouble working out what change relates to which add on and what theyu mean. My DRADIS/Radar is now full of dark-grey...

Re: Quick Escape Pod Help?

Ah, thank you!

Does the game clock serve any purpose other than to mark time? My reactions/abilities don't seem to be failing even though I've been playing several hundred hours?

Quick Escape Pod Help?

Hi all Never used one. Always blow up - hit space - retry. However, I'd like to be a bit more realistic in my next character and go where death = death. Obv. an escape pod is a necessity there. What does it DO? I remember vaguely in Elite that an escape pod came with a like-for-like ship-insurance p...

Re: Derelicts

Thank you - I'll seek out Notepad+ as when I opened the file in notepad yesterday (didn't save it) all I saw were non-alphanumeric characters.

Re: Derelicts

I like the towbar function but not the unsightly bar hanging off my Cobbie's bum: I cannot code, never really got much past basic and C. It'd be nice if there were a tractor or magnetic beam that could be activated when required. I could see the beam drawing half an energy bank when in use at modera...

Re: Xbox 360 control?

Brilliant!

Had enough GAME points to get the 360 Controller, which is cheaper than their 310, so a "free" controller is winging (geddit?) its way to me as I tyoe!
