The [EliteWiki] Wiki is a good place to start.

In between games, stumbling around the net and GoG (G) looking for some thing interesting. Found Oolite! In my youth, actually early middle age, I destroyed countless joysticks playing Elite. C64/128/Amiga 500. All those went by the board as I could read the writing on the wall about Commodore. $500.00 for a small hard drive? Big bucks for memory? So went to the dark side with an IBM clone 486 dx-33...Elite went away with the Commodore stuff. Now many years later I'm waiting for the postman to bring an old-fashioned Atari style joystick (USB now).. Too much key board bounce for combat..now its just run run run...thanks to the devs, programmers, coders, and players of the game!!!

Howdy all..

First played Elite on a BBC Micro

Managed to get to Elite Status on the ZX speccy version :D

Tried other versions, then stumbled on Oolite one day - amazing stuff. Many thanks go out to all the expansion pack people that breathe new life into this amazing game.

<buffs nails> Oh wait... I'm not an OXP'er! Merely a dumb pilot, who's been pushing a Cobra Mk III around for thirty-five years!
