Dear Commander McLane I seems to me I see them about half the time I misjump. But perhaps my impression of that is wrong. Still: one third of the time seems too much given that the encounters are meant to be very rare. On the other hand, we do want the players to notice them (and one can, I expect, ...

Aha. Well, that makes reasonable sense. Thanks for the clarification. That just leaves the bounty hunters question and the generation ship question. Still, I should not complain. For the game is a great achievement, which I enjoy for free! And there are pleasant people who answer one's queries-cum-g...

(1) I thought Random Hits already had an accidental fire detection system, or something. Perhaps I misremember. (2) As to someone in the safety zone been shot by someone outside it, etc.: why not just have it so it is a crime to shoot any craft (or non-fugitive craft) when it is inside the zone (irr...

Something that may be a small bug

I was in witchspace after a deliberate misjump, dropped a Q-mine and became a 'fugitive', pulled another deliberate misjump and there, amongst the Thargons and the Navy, were bounty hunters! That seems a bit odd. While I am at it: the misjumps seem *too* easy to pull; the Navy *always* is there with...

Safety zone as no-fire zone

Dear all How about making it an offence (in Galcop's eyes) to fire on *any* ship - except perhaps a 'fugitive' - within the safety zone? Also, for lesser offences, or for attacks that could be seen as accidents, how about warnings from the police? (I know there are warnings already; but they are not...

PS: Did nothing become of the idea of being somewhere able to buy some sort of trumble-removal kit? If so, that's a shame (especially given the OXP problem with the other removal method - the other removal method just mentioned). Perhaps Hacker Outposts, or Rock Hermits, or planets (as against stati...

Ah, the sort of friction we might call 'falling', and which a certain OXP has to do with?

There's an alternative to the time-honoured (and time consuming and risky) Elite method? What is it? Can you provide a hint?

Aha. I thought that the problem might be along those lines. Thanks for telling me. You might like to note, though, that in fact I've only just learnt about 'right-clickability' and have not been doing any right-clicking. Nonethless, as I said, control does seem now to work.

Dear all

The mouse control does now seem to work. Thank you! A speedily-provided fix. I wonder what the problem was (if I'd understand the answer). .

Yours

Nick

Serious mouse control problem

Dear all Firstly I'd like to say that I appreciate the game and, thus, all the work that people here have done on it. Now: ever since version 1.72 (I think it was - I am now on 1.73.3, and I have tried all the 'trunk' versions to date) my mouse cannot control my ship properly. For it will not move t...
