Re: Reverse up-down control when looking astern?

There is something about the reverse control thing that doesn't feel right.. (I play on keyboard. I guess this is not really an issue when using a joystick?) When you dive/climb or rotate (diving/climbing is really also rotating) and then let go of the keys, you don't stop rotating immediately. This...

Re: Evil tree wolfs

Maybe it's thanks to the automated translators that convert the myriads of alien dialects into your own dialect. This is actually mildly ;) close to the truth. (Except its a generator rather than translator.) A planet might be "\x82\x81 for \x8A but \x88 by \x89 " where.. \x82 --> "very ", "mildly ...

Re: Apparently defective Config/shipdata.plist files

I did a funny thing: When a .plist fails to parse on Mac, I run the data through my own (very forgiving) parser and re-serialize it and then try again with the new data. It works. I'm not sure whether it is a good idea to actually deploy this, but if anyone is interested to look at it, this is it: h...

Re: Docking hostile station

I don't know what the current system is for dealing with accidental friendly fire … would it be possible to let the player have 2 or 3 "free" hits on a friendly target before that target becomes hostile? I've seen NPCs call each other out for "Hey that was me you just hit!" or "Watch where you're s...

Re: Docking hostile station

Time or money penalties probably don't mean much to a commander with an iron assed ship and a million credits. The only 'economic' penalty that is an actual punishment would be to 'take it all', i.e. leave you with an unequipped ship and 100Cr. But at that point, you might as well Press Space. I don...

Docking hostile station

Greetings commanders I left the station, fired my aft lasers into the station, waited for the vipers to come out, killed a few, even picked up an escape pod from one of them, fired at the station some more, then docked at the station while still firing. I got paid for the escape pod, fined for no do...

Should there be a check that the string passed to to the method is not nil or it works OK all the same?
I had not tested that. I have now. It works properly and makes/leaves the clipboard empty.

Re: Trunk nightly

Here is another one.
It implements MyOpenGLView::stringToClipboard() for Mac,
so you can get the OXP info URLs from the manager.

By the way, is this the appropriate place to post these, seeing as it is not a bug report, or is there a 'patch submission'-thread?

Re: Trunk nightly

what exactly was broken with the direction cue before? It did not show up at all. I noticed it missing, checked equipment and OXPs, then realised I ran trunk. Tried 1.84 and it was there. So I looked at where it should be drawn, saw a bunch of warnings and a recent change. Tried this and it worked....

Re: Trunk nightly

For me, the direction cue indicator in the HUD is broken in head of master. Probably since 24bf8a05. Changing this: [[_reticleColors objectAtIndex:cueColorIndex] greenComponent] to this: [(OOColor*)[_reticleColors objectAtIndex:cueColorIndex] greenComponent] (for all components in both arrays) fixes...
