My 3D Pro arrived yesterday :D They had a really good price on non-refurbs, but very long ship times (probably waiting on the slowest Chinese-flagged boat out there). It finally arrived. Now I gotta find the spare time :evil:

Cool! Diziet Sma's guide to joystick axis set-up may be helpful.

Thank you. I was going to ask if there was some info on joystick setup for this game. Also are you aware of any threads giving info on good custom mapping profiles for the Extreme 3D Pro?

As a certified gunnut who's been around the action shooting scene, I've learned that it's always best to start by learning from other people's mistakes and then tweak your equipment/game once you know what you're doing 8)

Not offhand, but you're welcome to try my 'stick profile as a starter - four pics here (not all buttons are currently assigned, btw - I use keyboard a lot).

Hello Fellow Space Pilots,

I started playing Elite in the '80s, then re-discovered it a few years ago.

I fly a tooled up Mk3 Cobra doing a mixture of stuff, mostly legal. Rated Deadly with 3000+ kills to date and about 280,000 in the bank. I like to play it using my projector on the wall, with the sound going through the stereo and the cat sat on the settee next to me, like Chewbacca.

I really like the fact that its all run by enthusiasts who are doing it for free for anyone who wants it. The way you can customize the game to your own tastes are one of it's most appealing features. If I wasn't so computer illiterate, I'd have a go at some OXPs as I wish I could make some sort of contribution to it all. Maybe I'll offer some suggestions in the suggestion box. I can't think of any major changes I'd make to it, its great!

I love the nods and references to the sci-fi genre, especially the ships. Also the whole thing seems peculiarly British which makes a change. (The quirky, quaint assassination contracts make me smile. And the adverts.)

So, that's my little introduction, thanks to all contributors,

Fly Friendly!
Commander Philthy

Hi Philthy,
The sofa sounds a good idea - my cat tends to sleep on the keyboard which is a bit un-helpful, so perhaps I should get her a sofa :)

Hi Commander Philthy and welcome.
Testers are always welcome (for both oxps and the game itself) and that can be a very valuable way to contribute.

Whether it's having suggestions, finding exploits or even just breaking stuff, folks round here like to know (speaking generally, of course). Even just sharing your enthusiasm is good as it can be nice to think a piece of work is appreciated.

So, (as long as it's civil) criticise away :D

Hello, gentlemen!
My name is ... mmm... Bond, Commander Jameson Bond :).
Probably my story is not much different than others, but I think it has one strong difference. Thereby ELITE I learned English language. Not at all like native speaker, but enough to express my tons of thanks to developers for their brilliant job.

In beginning of 90' when I was young teenager I had ZX Specrum. When I first time saw ELITE I didn't understand what to do and what about the game. In same time I've got an instruction how to play and I fall in love to ELITE. In ELITE everything were on English. At that time there is no Internet nor translation of the game, neither friends who know English. But I had strong desire to understand everything in the game to play the one. I've got a dictionary and I began to translate ELITE for my own purposes. I travelled across eight galaxies, fought with pirates, mined asteroids, trade goods, completed all missions and became ELITE rank. I dreamed how it will be nice if such brilliant game would have nice graphics and much more missions, equipment, etc.
After many years I've got a computer, Internet connection and my dream came back. I tried to play a lot of cosmosims, but all of them were not a tiny bit of that ELITE. Even I tried to play ELITE DOS version. :cry: I started to think to buy ELITE Dangerous, but… but… bingo! I found dreamed ELITE. Dreamed ELITE name is Oolite.

Gen, sorry for my terrible English. I studied English by ELITE as described above.

Sincerely yours ComJaBo

Welcome aboard, Commander Jameson Bond!

That's a very inspiring story, that Elite motivated you to learn English..
