Yeah, with you on that. I couldn't fly straight because of its grip on my left arm, y'know, that head shaking thing they do once they get a good grip. Really annoying. :)

Should be up and running with this by the weekend... :gsv:
Just be a nutter... life becomes much more exciting, and people won't expect anything more of you...

Well I have my Topgun Afterburner II joystick working, but its too old for the throttle to work :(

I am finding it hard to get into this, jumping past places, getting attached yet cannot find them on the HUD, looking for stations and missions etc..

So far blown up once and failed a few missions and got fined

madders, ypu shouldn't be jumping past palces if you're targetting the object and keep the throttle setting where the indicator line is blue. This means that the computer will auto adjust your speed to get to destination.

New patch is good......

I jumped into a signal source and found 4 canisters of gold.... Nice, I thought.
All of a sudden I'm jumped on by 6 of the new AI Vultures who'd laid it there as a trap......

Got out by the skin of my teeth...

Once you've got the controls under your belt, which way do you fancy going?
Explorer? Bounty hunter? mining?

Flying backwards and strafing.... that how it works for the slower ships.....

Or boosting off while you recover as you recover quicker than they do.
