Calling all Browncoats - Rebel Galaxy on sale 80% off

If you're a fan of Serenity/Firefly, you'll probably love this game.. It's been described as a mashup of Firefly, Cowboy Bebop and Sid Meier's Pirates!.. It has a pumping blues rock soundtrack, and I'm so hooked my first session lasted 18 hours straight.. which NO game has ever done to me before. An...

Re: Any Twitch streamer here?

That - and I'd guess many of us prefer to play rather than watch someone play. Heck, I very much enjoy watching others gaming, both IRL and on youtube/twitch, and even I find the vast majority of Oolite videos to be boring as hell.. (despite loving to play the game myself) So far as I can tell, thi...

Re: Is Political Change Possible?

A possible subset of this sort of thing: The player might get a chance to join a system's local chapter of the Industrial Workers of the Galaxy, aka the Wigglies , contributing cash and goods (and maybe busting a few union-busters' heads) to let them put together a system-wide General Strike, thus ...

I see MS has backported its Defender ATP toolkit from WX to W7/8 - almost tempts me to update my vanilla OS install.

I wouldn't bother.. it's designed for Enterprise use, and it's not free. Given that M$ charge like a wounded bull for Office 365, I don't see ATP being any different.

Re: Anti malware program

I second the advice about the Windows Defender and Malwarebytes combo.. that's all I use (and I'm an IT tech specialising in computer and network security). If you absolutely must have some full-blown antivirus program, Panda (free version) is pretty lightweight and effective, but the number of news...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

I think the consensus from earlier on in the thread is that this is a nice idea and would be popular, except it is pretty much impossible to do within the way the game works. Agree.. with the proviso that I'd have added "at present" to the end of that sentence.. if the core code was changed to suit...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

Unless you're really into the "purist only open source" crowd, I'd recommend switching the "nouveau" NVidia driver with the one provided by NVidia as a first step into getting better graphics from your card. I was going to suggest the same thing.. your graphics chip is actually far more capable tha...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

Hmm.. nothing I can see of note in your logs.. other than your Mesa drivers being slightly out of date.. (I'm running 17.2.8 on my Mint machine) but I doubt that's anything to worry about. I can't think of anything else to suggest just now.. since the same set now causes no apparent problems, I'm in...

Re: Decals and Nose art.

later today I can try getting rid of the error-spawning oolite.oxp.Griff.Santa.oxz and oolite.oxp.amah.noshaders_accessories_chunky_explosions.oxz, and so on, to see if I can narrow in more specifically on crash-inducing OXZs. To save yourself some time, try using a binary testing methodology to id...

I forget the name of the one that adds pretty backgrounds to station menus... BGS?

That would be BGS.. but there's also Smivs' Better Screens.

No doubt HIMSN have a file on him - a fat file - but he's quite pally with Navy, and has been of use to them.

Very good point.. as always, it helps to have friends in high places! :lol:
