Re: Unable to start 1.86 on Ubuntu 16.04

Took a while but I've finally refreshed my laptop with Ubuntu 18.04. Still having grief unfortunately, but at least the behaviour is a bit different. Running Oolite v1.86 - Oct 25 2017 Latest.log contents Opening log for Oolite version 1.86 (x86-64) under Linux 4.15.0-20-generic at 2018-05-23 12:04:...

Re: Unable to start 1.86 on Ubuntu 16.04

This is the full log? :shock: How about the nightly ? Yep, that's the full log. Make sure you are installing the binaries from oolite.org and not from the distro repository. Downloaded 1.86 and 1.84 from oolite.org. Given that both versions are behaving the same, it could be that my Ubuntu build is...

Unable to start 1.86 on Ubuntu 16.04

Hi all, Decided to take my Cobra out from under the dustcloth, but I'm being denied before I can even get the game to launch. Following are the contents of my latest.log What I'm seeing is the icon appearing in the task bar, then it disappears after a few seconds. I've tried uninstalling / reinstall...

Santa vs Rudolph? Santa loses

(inspired by an r/showerthoughts topic...) ...all of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names... So where the hell was Santa while this bullying was going on? He knows if you've been bad or good my arse!!! :x Then the old wino geriatric fart has the cheek to ask Rudolph for a favor on tha...

Re: Using a controller

Related to this - I started playing with an X Box One controller on my Ubuntu box. I've noticed some differences between using that and my Logitech 3D Pro, specifically with regards to the analogue joystick throw limits (not sure if that's the right terminology but I hope that I can communicate clea...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and the return

I’d also like to thank the community for your involvement cash. Fixed that for him! <chuckles> Man, that's harsh but true. I must confess my Cobra is back in the black again. I've decided that I want to see FD's rendition of a black hole, so I'm off for a short solo jaunt to Sagittarius A*. I hope ...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - and Thargoids?

'Our' Drew is in the news.

My Cobra III is still under a dustcloth somewhere. It will probably take a day or so for the pending updates to be applied to my gaming rig if I ever get the urge to take it out again.

I don't have the time to commit to these big stories...

Re: Limit Theory

Yeah, the Cult of Josh has been reinvigorated. You have something there, Cody. In two weeks, the link I posted above now has 13 pages of replies, with lots of supportive flagellation by the community (admittedly, a community being supportive is a nice thing in these times so I won't criticise furth...

Re: Frontier Developments plc Full year trading update

Yeah, that share price chart is not a pretty picture, although to be fair, it's still a way off it's 3 year low of around 100p (I'm assuming 180.00 means 180p, not 180 pounds...)

Re: Bank accounts and galactic jumps

[Walks in late to the party...] Oooo this sound awesome. My next thought is to have multiple 'bank accounts' in the one chart. This would get annoying once you have acquired enough credits to fill your hold with computers, meaning that one would have to start putting their credits into the precious ...

Hmmm...17th Sept 2006. I had no idea I've been tinkering with Oolite for so long!

Congratulations, Drew, on (almost) 10 years :-)

Re: The Current state of Space games in general

+1 for anticipating Limit Theory. It offers all that ED offered, but without the demanding time committment. It offers all that Oolite offers, but without 25+ years of history (there is always in the back of my mind the thought that DB will do to Oolite what was done to Pioneer and demand that we st...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - beyond the frontier

Wow, lots of downvotes. Understandable, though when you consider how efficiently FDEV burnt through their goodwill developed during the kickstarter. The loyal fanbase has moved on after being disappointed with being ignored. I'm no longer waiting for the game that was originally designed as I've mov...
